BILL O'REILLY (HOST): My problem is that I know Trump and I know that he deals -- he says things out of emotion. For example today with the Ted Cruz father business. I have got to run the sound bite. This is beyond bizarre. Roll it. 


O'REILLY: Alright. Now, on the record, the Cruz campaign denies any association. It came out of a National Enquirer report. But, this stuff doesn't do the Republican Party any good at all. I cede your point there. But I know Trump. He is not -- he gets emotional, but then he steps back and it's a different guy. Go ahead. 

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: Do you believe he thinks that Cruz's dad was associated with Lee Harvey Oswald? 

O'REILLY: No. But I believe that he puts that out there just to create mayhem and creating mayhem has won the election for him. Has it not? 

KRAUTHAMMER: Well, what you are saying is the end justifies the means. 

O'REILLY: That's what he says. He believes he has to win -- 

KRAUTHAMMER: -- You're saying I don't care if he is creating mayhem, he won. I don't think that's the right answer. 

O'REILLY: I'm not saying. I'm just telling you how he -- you say okay, I don't want him with the nuclear code. And I'm saying to you, a lot of this is theater because the odds of him winning the nomination when he began in June were a million to one and he won it by creating mayhem and it was a brilliant strategy. It worked for him.
