Trump on Fox’s Roger Ailes: He’s a Friend but ‘He Doesn’t Do Anything For Me’
Yesterday, presidential candidate Donald Trump was on Sirius XM to appear on Stephen K. Bannon‘s Brietbart News Daily show. His evergreen battle with Fox News was brought up because of course it was; everyone is talking about it.
When Bannon said he was surprised that Fox treated Trump so “badly” given how close the mogul is with Fox New’s Chairman & CEO Roger Ailes, Trump agreed, saying the following:
Well, I don’t know. Roger Ailes and I like each other, but he doesn’t do anything for me. That I can tell you. He certainly doesn’t do anything. In one way, he’s very professional, he won’t lift his finger to help me. Roger Ailes will not lift his finger to help me. Which is fine, I mean he’s a professional and maybe that’s the way it’s supposed to be, but I get treated very badly by Fox.
Trump also had some words for some of Fox’s most well-known pundits. He called Karl Rove a moron and said Charles Krauthammer can’t say anything good, “no matter what.”
He and Bannon that moved on to discussing rival Marco Rubio, wondering together if Rubio and Governor Nikki Haley will be Fox’s new “Barbie and Ken.”
