BILL O'REILLY (HOST): Here is more startling number, and I don't understand this number. African-Americans favorable for Trump, 7 percent, unfavorable 91 percent. What did Donald Trump ever do to African-Americans? I'm not getting this, it's far and away the biggest repudiation of any political candidate.

BERNIE GOLDBERG: You know what? That's a fair question, because he certainly hasn't done anything specific. You can make the case that he made comments about Mexicans, that Mexicans, you know, Latins, Americans don't like, or Latinos in this country don't like --

O'REILLY: Muslims.

GOLDBERG: -- You might make that case.

O'REILLY: Right.

GOLDBERG: But he hasn't done anything to my knowledge that would offend so many black people, but I think it's the persona. Hillary Clinton is very popular among black voters, very popular. She panders to the black electorate a lot. And understandably she is, you know, they like her. So if she is the opponent of a Donald Trump. So if she is the opponent of a Donald Trump, you can see how they might say we like Hillary, therefore, we don't like Trump. But there is no rational reason. You are on to something there.

O'REILLY: I don't understand. Our African-American viewers, if you will write me and let me know, I mean, I'll do it tomorrow. We will do a segment on it.


O'REILLY: African-Americans like Cruz, a lot more than they like Trump. Again, why?

GOLDBERG: Well, they like him a lot more than they like Trump, but I mean they probably like David Duke a little more than they like Trump --

O'REILLY: But there is no rationale for either the favorable for Cruz among African-Americans, or unfavorable. I don't understand the number.

GOLDBERG: Well, one of the problems is, and hear me out on this -- is that you're looking at this rationally.
