Donald Trump's Super Bowl Interview: Was Bill O'Reilly Fair and Balanced?

Billy O’Reilly recently called his pre-Super Bowl sit-down with President Donald Trump “the most important interview of my life.” Well, with the much-hyped Q&A now one for the history books, would you say the right-leaning Fox News personality rose to the occasion?

During the pair’s civil 10-minute face-off, O’Reilly grilled the media-bashing POTUS on a number of hot topics. Herewith are some highlights:

* O’Reilly pointed out that the refugee ban rollout was a bit of a mess, but Trump was having none of it, insisting, “It was very smooth.”

* Trump did not deny reports that he threatened to invade Mexico to deal with the country’s drug cartel problem during his call with president Enrique Peña Nieto. “He’s got a problem, and it’s a real problem for us,” he said. “Those cartels are operating in our country and they’re poisoning the youth of our country. They have problems controlling certain aspects of their country.”

* Asked if taxpayers will see some relief from Uncle Sam this year, Trump hedged, “I think so.”

* Trump’s promised Obamacare replacement? It might not be ready until “next year.”

* On whether it’s hit him yet that he’s President. “The other day I walked into the main entrance of the White House and I said to myself, ‘This is amazing,'” he marveled, before adding, “But you have to get over it because there’s so much work to be done.”

* He’s rooting for the Patriots. “Tom Brady is my friend,” he conceded. “You have to stick up for your friends, right?” (Trump added that he thinks Trump will prevail over the Falcons “by eight points.”)

    Bill O’Reilly didn’t press the president on anything. For the most part he asked his question and then just moved on. He could have easily mentioned that if talking registration logs, his daughter and many of his people are registered in multiple states

    • PhDinStats says:

      Let me summarize all the comments for everyone, I’ll save you all the time. “Bla bla bla, wasnt hard enough on him, bla bla bla, tyrant, dumb”
      Wake up people, politicians are ALL crooks, its just they fleece us differently…Trump is ‘special’ and letting us know HOW its being done….Hilly would have kept it a secret…… hmmm maybe ignorance really IS bliss.

  2. Yoko says:

    Can’t rate this interview….I refuse to watch that cheeto be interviewed at any time unless it’s at impeachment hearings.

  3. i honestly can’t fathom why this is a thing
    not only do i seriously doubt that anyone has ever said that the super bowl need more politics
    but secondly, i also seriously doubt there there has ever been any real new to come out of these. in fact you can’t even all them softballs. In fact calling them cotton balls is an overstatement.

  4. Bruce Paine says:

    Trump continues to mislead people by talking about the money given to Iran as part of the reduction of sanctions as if it was US money, and came from US taxpayers. This is not true, it was Iranian money that was frozen in foreign banks for years and years that was returned to them as part of the negotiations. Trump lies about this, and O’Reilly (and countless other reporters) simply ignore it instead of calling him on his insinuations.

    Seriously can’t understand this American obsession with Putin.

    • Jim says:

      the only American obsessed with Putin is Trump

    • Ashok Tulsyan says:

      I don’t think Putin is Trump’s relative that he wants to help Putin. Trump knows that Putin is influencial with counties favoring Islamic teriorist who are big threat to us. President Trump wants to have good relation with Putin so he can help us in resolving this problem. What is wrong in it. I don’t think Trump is going to favor Putin if it is not in our national interest.

      • DL says:

        Putin supports Iran, who supports terrorism. Putin ignores ISIS in Syria to support Assad. He has shown no interest in defeating ISIS so long as those terrorists keep providing cover and distraction from his own shady activities and invasion of Ukraine. The idea that we should ignore all this because he *might* help with terrorism is an obvious fallacy, a lie divorced from reality, and the people who are buying it are being made fools of once again. Learn some facts; don’t take queues from a man who knows less about the world than most high school social studies teachers.

        • Chance says:

          IMO Putin is a typical WWII style dictator [Stalin/Mussolini/Hitler/Franco] who wants an empire. He is insidious but not as powerful as he imagines. Russia is financially weak and in no position to conquer worlds. China is a bigger threat particularly in light of our indebtedness to them.

          • DL says:

            Which just supports my point. Aside from the fact Putin actually does nothing to help against ISIS, his status as a paper emperor invalidates the claim that overlooking Putin’s abhorrent behavior in order to make alliances with a near-destitute Russia would in any way be to our benefit.

  6. Brenda Daniels says:

    PRESIDENT Trump is awesome. He’s cleaning Obama’s mess. :) great interview Bill and Mr. President!!!

    • Dave says:

      Explain Obama’s mess further? Can’t just make blanket statements because you believe all the crud being fed to you by Trump and the spineless, morally corrupt GOP. Obama may not have been perfect, but he hardly left a mess behind, you know such as the economic one he was handed when he took office.

      • Pete93 says:

        come on, you know better than to expect details from Trumpists. stupid, meaningless or flatout wrong claims is all their tiny brains can produce.

        • Chris says:

          It doesn’t matter you can throw all the facts you want at a trumpist and they just bring up there “alternative facts ” or as sane people call them lies.

      • -The Iran nuclear deal gave Iran roughly $150 billion dollars, which they can now use to fund terrorist activities/build weapons.
        -He violated American laws and precedent by paying Iran CASH for apparent hostages.
        -He approved of the trading of 5 high-ranking militant Iranians, 2 of which were involved in killing not only Americans, but 1,000’s of Shiites for Bowe Bergdahl, who is now on trial for desertion.
        -He lifted 50 year old sanctions on Cuba, which is still a communist country with a horrible human rights record for no reason. In January 2017, right before leaving office, he over-turned 50 yrs of precedent by canceling the “Wet Foot, Dry Foot” policy. Now Cuban refugees that risk their lives escaping to America are just sent back to Castro – Where are the protests, social media outrage, media coverage w/ pics of poor Cuban children arriving at the US coasts only to be sent back?
        -He and his administration, which included Hilary as Sec. of State at the time, created ISIS by killing Kadafi and then not putting any form of government in place there so it left a vacancy, which Islamist Militants then filled and became ISIS.
        -His foreign policy and stance on terrorism has allowed ISiS to expand to over 130 countries resulting in the deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent people across the globe (E.G. Syria), including Western countries like the UK and US.
        -Major domestic terrorist attack of the last few years include Boston Marathon Bombing, Pulse Nightclub in Orlando & San Bernardino,CA. All 3 of these were done by Radical Muslims.
        -In 2013, made his infamous “Red Line” ultimatum to Syria in regards to their use of chemical weapons and ultimately reduced our negotiating power with the world as we now looked weak and like we wouldn’t follow through on our threats/promises.
        -He helped create the Syrian refugee crisis by allowing ISIS to form and grow.
        -Now, he has already brought roughly 10K Syrians that were displaced from Syria in large part due to the spread of ISIS here so US taxpayers can pay for their living expenses, insurance expenses, etc. He & Hilary planned to bring another 55K here in 2017, but hopefully that will change now. Most of these people could not be properly vetted according to our director of Homeland Security, but we are letting them in anyways.
        -Our relationship with Israel is the worst it’s ever been.
        -Obamacare..
        -Racial tensions have never been higher (due to groups like BLM and Obama’s support of these groups),
        -More police officers are being killed – many of which are being ambushed due to BLM and Obama’s lack of support for police officers. (Murder rates in Chicago are the highest they have been in years.)

        • DL says:

          Can’t even address most of this nonsense, like GOP crazies saying Obama’s responsible for racial tensions when they’re the ones who tried to delegitimize him for years based on race, while ignoring police and justice system corruption and how it victimized minorities. But as far as Iran goes, that was IRAN’S MONEY! It was assets we froze when they kicked out our puppet Shah. Part of the deal was giving back the cash we already owed. Stop rehashing the lies you hear; it makes you as culpable at misleading the masses as the “alternative facts” people heading up the Trump regime.

          • DL says:

            Also all the domestic attacks you cited were by U.S. CITIZENS! You can’t point at a random non-rescue dog that bites someone and turn around and say, “Rescue dogs are the real danger! Believe me!” But that’s basically what’s happening here, because people are yellow-bellied cowards afraid of the world. And yet the Pulse shooting was from an East Coast guy who moved to Florida, who was in the closet and his self-loathing drove him to shoot people. All records indicate he was mentally unstable and violent and shouldn’t have gotten a gun, but God forbid the GOP supports background checks and closing loopholes to stop that from happening. No, let’s just ban Muslims. And never mind all the white psychos shooting up our movie theaters and elementary schools. You people are hypocrites of the vilest kind. You don’t care about anything but assuaging your own values and paranoia while giving a big middle finger to those who disagree as losers or libtards or Communist hippies. But you guys are the one riding the fear train to the end of America as we know it. Grow some damn courage, stop lying to yourselves and pretending that Glorious Trump can save you from anything. Looks more like he’s going to start another war or three. ISIS is already using him to advertise. Who is it making race relations worse, again?

          • Per CNN “The Obama administration made two additional cash payments totaling $1.3 billion, after delivering $400 million to Iran by plane in January, to resolve a failed arms deal, administration officials told lawmakers Tuesday.”

            As for the $150 billion, yes, I know that it is technically their money, however, Obama’s Nuclear Deal lifted sanctions so that Iran now has access to it. So yes, Obama gave them (up to) $150 billion dollars in this deal.

            In regards to your comments below regarding recent terrorist attacks, you are correct that they were all carried out by radical Islams who were US citizens. That is exactly why we need to have better vetting processes in place so that we don’t make any more of these US citizens. As for the ones born here, we need to have a better understanding of the appeal and recruiting techniques of ISIS in order to stop it. BTW, the Pulse nightclub shooter did pledge allegiance to ISIS during the shooting so despite his issues about possibly being gay, he was also a radical Muslim.

        • DL says:

          @malls24: Are you serious? Those people were radicalized WAY AFTER they were accepted into the U.S. Or in the case of Omar Mateen, the Pulse shooter, as you yourself acknowledged, he was born here and couldn’t have been vetted. But you also make the absurd suggestion that we need a better understanding of the “appeal and recruiting techniques” of ISIS.
          .
          Are you really that ignorant? U.S. intelligence knows exactly how ISIS goes about this, with propaganda magazines, YouTube sermons by deceased ISIS propaganda master Al Awlaki, and all kinds of online ads and recruitment videos, which now include OUR OWN PRESIDENT. ISIS is using DJT’s own words to recruit more terrorists. Policies where we discriminate against Muslims drive them into the arms of ISIS, who they start to believe are the only people who will accept them.
          .
          And as for Omar Mateen pledging to them, they had ZERO contact with him. He was radicalized through the methods I’m talking about, which we understand VERY CLEARLY. But if you actually look at his history, you can see easily he was a violent, disturbed individual, and likely a self-hating gay man with a chip on his shoulder and something to prove. If you think ISIS was anything more than an excuse to act on his own rage and psychological dysfunction, you’re either delusional, or you haven’t read up on this case AT ALL.
          .
          I mean, this honestly has to be one of the most ridiculous and clueless responses I’ve ever read. Every person with minimum knowledge on the subject knows that ISIS radicalizes Western Muslims through convincing them that the rest of the Western world hates them. There’s no bigger poster boy for demonstrating that hate than our own POTUS. So wake the hell up. He’s putting us in more danger than ever before. And you totally ignored my point about gun legislation! Aren’t Adam Lanza, and Dylan Roof, and James Holmes terrorists also? How can you possibly sustain this contradictory and hypocritical logic? You’re okay with people being killed as long as they’re killed by white folks.

        • Cat says:

          ISIS was not started because of the fall of GHADAFI (not Kadafi), in fact in means Islamic State of Iraq and Syria and it preexisted the Libyan revolution, Trump has repeatedly falsely accused Obama and Clinton of creating ISIS when in fact it was a result of the Iraq war that Bush and Cheney caused.

        • Cat says:

          Your country averaged one mass shooting a week by usually white, nonMuslim shooters which should be also be called terrorist attacks, for example the white man who went into a black church and indiscriminately killed the parishioners simply because they were black all because you Americans believe in the right to bare arms. In my country, Australia, we had one mass shooting and as a result banned almost all automatic and semi auto mic guns and while gun crimes have not ended, we have never had a mass shooting like that again in over twenty years.

      • Chance says:

        Obama’s “mess” would include:
        Running up the national debt more than all previous presidents COMBINED.
        Giving pardons and/or early release to more felons than any recent POTUS.
        Taking racial tensions back to 1960s levels.
        Making the US look weak and ineffectual to the rest of the world.
        Depleting the military.
        Giving sweetheart deals to Iran and other countries that subjugate women and support terrorism.

        • DL says:

          Taking racial tensions back to the 1960s? Who’s the party that propagated a lie that the first black POTUS was a secret Kenyan Muslim? 43 percent of GOP voters still think he’s a Muslim, and 36 percent still say he’s foreign-born despite DJT supposedly putting an end to the controversy. Maybe it’s because the GOP engaged in historic, unprecedented obstruction and set new standards of opposition in U.S. history for seemingly no reason that anyone can discern, except that Obama was black and still clearly smarter than most people in the room. And never mind that he saved our economy or brought us health care.
          .
          It’s also GOP voters who decided “BLM” was saying, “white lives don’t matter,” when if you actually listened, all they’re saying is “we matter too, because we’re treated less than equal.” You guys are completely full of it and make up your own facts. Well, liberals are done letting you get away with it. We’re calling you out on your lies and nonsense. Stop making things up. It just makes you a hypocrite, and a tool of the money-grubbing bankers and corporate career polluters who fund the Republican party, fill our streets with guns, and our water sources with oil and chemical spills.

        • kayw4 says:

          I mean, at least by these type of comments we can get a better understanding of what’s spoon-fed to Fox News viewers – but it’s so scary and disheartening to see what people actually believe crap like about Obama running up the national debt. I mean, it’s Orwell’s 1984, in that they’re made to believe the actual opposite of what’s true (that is, Obama reducing the national debt by about two thirds compared to the mess Bush left us in). I just don’t think we should waste time trying to convince people who are this lost and brainwashed. It’s also not their fault – yes, their voting for Trump is their fault as he really was incredibly upfront about how corrupt and dangerous he is – but all the other crap they’re told, I think at some point the sheer barrage of lies just means that they start believing what they’re told.

          • DL says:

            To be fair, I think you’re a little confused. Obama sliced down the deficit, which as you seem to be inferring, is indeed something Republicans like to pretend isn’t true. But he did actually increase our national debt with the bailout. Of course, that’s a small price to pay to keep us from sliding into a second Great Depression. We’re riding high on the Obama recovery, even though Trump is trying to take credit for it.

    I’m a Fox News viewer, but you left President Trump off the hook rather than being fair and balanced. The President ran laterally like a quarter back trying to avoiv a tackle. He never answered your question pertaining to his communication blunder last Friday night.
    He runs sideways on all reporters and escapes.

  10. The Trolls out early today.. Trump can’t answer crap because the gems are slowing and blocking everything. Once he gets his peeps in.. Down go Frazier!!!

  11. Chad says:

    Trump thinks Trump will prevail over the Falcons by 8 points? He’s an even bigger idiot than we thought he was. However I’d love to see him get creamed by an entire defensive line while not wearing pads or a helmet. I’d pay good money to see that.

  12. Angela says:

    Trump’s promised Obamacare replacement? It might not be ready until “next year.”
    .
    Which, of course, begs these rather important questions, if they do manage to completely end Obamacare, and Trump’s words about a replacement here are true, what exactly are those of us who’ll be without health insurance as a result of the repeal supposed to do in the meantime? Just hope to God we don’t have some serious medical issue/sickness come up? Not go to the doctor at all?
    .
    There are absolutely some tweaks that need to be made to Obamacare to smooth out the rough aspects of it, but I really, REALLY do not understand this obsession with repealing it altogether and leaving so many people without any opportunity for health insurance at all. How does the GOP think that’s an even remotely okay thing to do to people?

    • Jeff Ross says:

      You can start by getting a job that offers healthcare…. To many people these days looking for a hand out. People need to get off their butts and stop sticking out their hands for free stuff. If you want something then EARN it.

      • Lori says:

        Really Jeff Ross? Do you realize that the self-employed need insurance and those who work for smaller companies may not have employer-sponsored healthcare? Some employers play the game of offering less-than-full-time employment so they *don’t* have to provide insurance.

        In such cases, some people can get insured on the open market. Anyone with a pre-existing condition (and it might shock you what insurance companies call a pre-existing condition) may not be able to afford the up-charge to insurance, or worse, be able to get it at all. I know of what I speak, as a full-time plus self-employed person who has never, ever “had my hand out for free stuff,” yet I couldn’t get insured due to “pre-existing conditions.” Until the ACA came along. I paid over $1500 a month last year for 2 adults and 1 dependent. Expensive? Yes. But I was grateful to have it.

      • abz says:

        I find it absolutely sickening that the need for healthcare is being equated to “wanting a handout”. I’m so happy I’m not an America with this type of mentality from some of these people. There’s too many people with the every man for himself mentality.
        So if a person is sick and they have a job where their employer doesn’t offer health insurance, they should accept that and remain sick because they didn’t EARN the right for healthcare?? Absolutely twisted thinking.

      • Angela says:

        Oh, gee, it’s so simple, why didn’t I think of that before?
        .
        Holy crap. It is not that easy sometimes to find jobs that offer such things, you know that, right? People can’t control who does and doesn’t hire them, there’s some jobs that demand skills some don’t have for various reasons, there may not be a lot of those kinds of jobs available in certain towns (not everyone lives in a big city, after all), some businesses may not offer healthcare opportunities for various reasons. Quit blaming the uninsured for this issue. Quit calling them “people looking for handouts”. I didn’t realize wanting to be able to go to the doctor without going broke in the process was too damn much to ask.
        .
        Do not EVEN pull that “handout” BS with me because you could not be more wrong with that assumption. There is absolutely ZERO justification for allowing people to go without health insurance because of their financial situation or other issues. Zero. Other countries manage to make sure their people are properly insured, so if they can do it, I think America can get on board and do the same. We’re supposedly the greatest country in the world, right? We can do anything!
        .
        But hey, who cares what happens to other people, right? You got yours, so who gives a crap if others are left in the cold and sick and dying because they can’t afford to go to a doctor? Jerk.

    • DL says:

      Don’t worry, Trump supported single-payer in the past, and he cares more about his approval than GOP ideology. My guess is he’ll eventually try to repair Obamacare and then rebrand it as Trumpcare so he can claim credit. Because even Republicans now realize “repeal and replace,” is a nice slogan, but a really stupid plan.

  13. Janice P says:

    I am always impressed with Donald Trump being so positive! He is driven to correct all the blunders of the Obama administration which I applaud him for! Our country deteriorated morally and spiritually under Obama because he was so influenced by his pastor who stated God da…. America. It is deplorable that our country elected Obama who has ruined our country…I am so happy that Donald Trump was elected and that we are not going to fund abortions anymore except for incest or rape or the life of the mother. I consider President Trump a very strong man to keep on going on the correct path under so much opposition from people who uphold unethical behavior. I could care less what the Hollywood stars think and say. The movies they make with violence, murder are part of the problem with the deteriation of our country along with pornography which is abhorrent and degrading to all Americans! So President Trump keep standing up for what is right. However don,t waste your time tweeting to those who mock you! They are not worth your time!

    • cmarie says:

      Would love to know how Obama “ruined our country.” You won’t be able to answer because… he didn’t. And for the love of God, read some actual news. The government does not fund abortions. The funding for planned parenthood does not go to abortions. Never has.

        • DL says:

          I rebutted most of this nonsense when you posted this above. But as for Obama’s foreign policy blunders, I won’t deny them, but they’re nothing compared to G.W. Bush. He’s the one who destabilized the entire region based on a lie. How come he gets a pass? Hypocrite. ISIS wouldn’t exist if Bush’s invasion hadn’t killed thousands of innocent Muslim civilians and thrown the region into chaos. Obama’s mistake don’t excuse how Bush got us here in the first place.

          • Everyone, including Obama, criticized Bush for mistakes in the war with Iraq, yet then Obama/Clinton did the same exact thing with Lybia and Kadafi. They took out the leader of a country (who like Sadam was a bad guy, but held his country intact) and then did nothing to address the power vacuum that existed afterwards. Hence, Al Queda that was dwindling in Iraq left for Lybia and formed ISIS. Yes, Bush sucked, but you are really laying ISIS at his feet and not laying any of it on Obama? Really? Obama created the power vacuum and then let them slowly grow for over 5 years spreading like a virus across the world.

            BTW, as for Bush “lying” about Weapons of Mass Destruction, did you not pay attention when Trump took on the intelligence community earlier this month. A frequent criticism was that they had the wrong intel on WOMD existing during the Iraq war. It was the intelligence community that failed. Bush just didn’t get together with Cheney in his office and say “Hey, let ‘s say they have WOMD so we can take their oil”. If that was the case, where is all of this oil that Bush supposedly stole? Furthermore, chemical WOMD’s that were bought/stolen from Iraq have been used in Syria on multiple occasions so they did exist. Finally, I’m not trying to defend Bush andthe Iraq war as I think it was a mistake, but I am going to point out facts.

            As for Trump. the guy has a long list of faults (ego, social media usage, statements to press, lack of foreign policy experience, etc.). I’m not afraid to criticize any President of any party. However, to ignore that there was a mess left behind by Obama is just a plain lie.

          • DL says:

            And I quote myself: “…as for Obama’s foreign policy blunders, I won’t deny them…”
            .
            But are you seriously asserting that ISIS had more to do with the Qaddafi vacuum than it did with Bush’s devastation of Iraq and making the United States look like a bunch of genocidal murderers? I’ll freely admit Obama’s inaction gave ISIS the real estate they needed. But the will to take on America was engendered by George W. Bush’s irresponsible slaughters of innocent Muslims and wanton destruction of Iraqi heritage sites which turned fringe elements like Al Qaeda into an actual anti-West movement.
            .
            Learn! Educate yourself! You’re clearly smart, so stop being fooled by your partisan bias. Go read a book about it instead of thinking you know everything from the news.

      I could care less what the Hollywood stars think and say.
      .
      1) It’s “couldn’t care less”, not “could care less”.
      2) Which is precisely why you elected a reality TV star to be president, right?
      ,
      The movies they make with violence, murder are part of the problem with the deteriation of our country along with pornography which is abhorrent and degrading to all Americans!
      .
      …what on earth does that have to do with politics?
      .
      Also, so….are you familiar with Trump hanging out with Hugh Hefner? Or the fact that he’s been married multiple times AND had affairs? Guy’s not exactly a paragon of traditional family values, you know that, right?

    Bill is an excellent jurnalist. He covered all hot topics in a short interview. His job is to get President’s point of view and not to argue or fight. Keep in mind that President Trump won with a record number of votes but still it was roughly 50% voted for him. Obviously, the other 50% who did not vote for him, are never going to be happy. They are complaining every thing which President Trump does. Take an example, President Trump nominated the best candidate on planet for Supreme Court but all democrates have problem. These are the same people who UNANIMOUSLY voted for him a few years ago. Whether some one likes or not, Mr. Trump is now President. Let us all get behind him and help shape the country. After all, he is doing what he said he will do and people elected him for this reason.

      I think the only record number of votes he has is losing the popular vote by almost 3 million, but I’m sure you believe the people in California don’t matter or those votes were illegal because you are that deluded. And also he only got about votes from about 25% of the people in the country, and still lost the popular vote.

      • Ashok Tulsyan says:

        Trump got elected in accordance with our constitution. He is our President whether you like or not. Now, in the national interest, get behind him in shaping the country because there is NO other choice. Be a true citizen.

          By standing up for what is right and using my right to free speech I am a true citizen following the constitution.

        • TC says:

          he’s already in violation of the constitution, dish*t. if Republicans hat any real patriotism, impeachment would be on the way. Trump is not shaping the country, he’s grabbing it by the p*ssy.

        • Jooshua says:

          Were you a true citizen who stood behind Obama when he was president?

    Nice — Trump thinks Trump will prevail over the Falcons by eight points. I know it’s a typo but it just seems so Trump.

  16. Pete93 says:

    don’t care much about football, but god damn, I hope the Falcons keep it up and beat the Patriots. suck it, Drumpf.

  17. Anon says:

    Trump added that he thinks Trump will prevail over the Falcons.

    O’reilly interview with Trump was deplorable, but Trump handled it very well. O’reilly should blast off to somewhere and leave the show to someone else!
