What started off contentious ended surprisingly well.
Donald Trump called out Bill O’Reilly for raising a question the Fox News host had agreed he wouldn’t bring up during the Republican presidential front-runner’s appearance on “The O’Reilly Factor” Wednesday night.
After arguing over Trump being characterized as a buffoon, O’Reilly confronted Trump on his decision to skip out on Thursday’s Fox News debate in Des Moines, Iowa, the final debate before the Iowa caucus.
“Forgive, go forward, answer the questions, look out for the folks,” O’Reilly told him at about the 4:35 mark. “Just want you to consider it. You owe me milkshakes. I’ll take them off the ledger if you consider it.”
“Even though you and I had an agreement that you wouldn’t ask me that, which we did, I will therefore forget that you asked me that,” Trump replied. “But it’s up to Fox, it’s not up to me, Bill.”
O’Reilly confirmed that the agreement had been made, calling Trump an “honest man,” but added, “I’m not going to listen to any political person tell me don’t ask me anything.”
In the end, O’Reilly praised Trump for having the guts to come on the show, and Trump ended by promoting his own plans to compete with Fox News for ratings on the night of the debate.
Love him or hate him, that was a score.
