He won’t take this lying down.
The ongoing war between presidential candidate Donald Trump and Fox News continued as Trump took to social media Monday night to accuse host Bill O’Reilly of having guests on his show who were critical of Trump.
In a series of social media posts, Trump attacked the network, asking, “Why don’t you have some knowledgeable talking heads on your show for a change instead of the same old Trump haters. Boring!”
He also attacked O’Reilly personally, saying, “I expect better from you. What is going on? Fair and balanced my @**”
For his part, O’Reilly, who appeared on NBC’s “Today” show, claimed Trump wants people to like him and takes criticism personally.
He added that social media gives Trump a platform to react — and complain — if feels the need to do so.
“That’s like the worst thing you can give Donald Trump, is this tweeting thing. So I just think this is an extension of his reality show, ‘The Apprentice.’ This is just theater right now. He gets a lot of attention from the theater,” O’Reilly said.
O’Reilly also said in all likelihood, Trump will remain popular in the primary.
