BILL O'REILLY (HOST): Okay, do you believe that Donald Trump would murder people if he were president of the United States? Do you, Charles Krauthammer, believe he would murder people?

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER (CONTRIBUTOR): Well if he doesn't wants to, why did he say it?

O'REILLY: Because he wants votes. He's doing all of this -- it's theater to get votes. That's what he's doing.

KRAUTHAMMER: So you're saying that this is a candidate for the presidency of the United States talking to the American people and the world and saying, “I'm going to do X, Y, and Z,” and that the words he says are meaningless? I have no idea what he would do as president. All I have to go on is what he says.

O'REILLY: He wants to win. He is going to say whatever -- like almost every other politician, he's going to say whatever he thinks is going to put him over the top to win. But I'm not justifying it. I'm explaining it. And so people can make their own minds on whether you vote for a guy like that or you don't. But he's running as a rogue candidate. He's getting people whipped up so that they will like him because their emotion and his emotion coincide.
