ERIC BOLLING (HOST): You brought up Fox and this is fascinating to me. It may be -- it's a little in the weeds. But you and I know this, and I think that most of the people watching right now are into the politics and into the gamesmanship that goes on in politics to understand this. So, Donald Trump comes to South Carolina. I'm from South Carolina, I have a house there. Very wisely, very astutely talked about the boating community, the boat builders. And it's a huge industry in South Carolina. Very well. So, Fox takes the speech, which normally you don't - usually it's Newsmax, we're doing it on our own. But they take the speech around three o'clock, a few minutes after three, and I'm watching, and we're taking it as well. And then Trump says something about -- and he wasn't really talking about -- he didn't mention Fox. He simply said that debate where no one really watched. Fox jumped off the -- off immediately. Just cut away to it.  And I was like, are they that sensitive? Are they -- I mean, that was just so blatantly obvious --

DONALD TRUMP JR (GUEST): They are that sensitive. They are that sensitive. Just like our government won't let Tucker Carlson talk to Vladimir Putin. You know, maybe we want to hear another opinion. Doesn't mean you have to like him. But let's maybe hear what he has to say. But we want to smother that. They want to smother anything that they don't control entirely. It's why they don't want Trump because they want a puppet in the White House. It's not about fighting for conservatives for this. They're fighting for their billionaire class, and they put, you know, neocon RINOs like Paul Ryan on their board. They don't represent hardworking, conservative Americans. That's not at all what they want. They want that power. They want the proximity to power because that benefits them like it does all of the elite. Again, Trump is the antithesis of that, because he's the only one of those people, the only one of those politicians or the people, perhaps considered in that group, that doesn't actually need those people's money, doesn't need their love, their attention, and that's why Donald Trump is the only threat to that deep state, to the establishment who's been failing us for far too long.

BOLLING: So, I was hoping that, given the announcement that Rupert Murdoch was stepping down last Thursday as chairman -- he's handing his board seats over to Lachlan, James, Elizabeth, and Prudence -- that maybe the new era of Fox would be a little bit more welcoming of Trump. But then they pulled away mid-speech --

TRUMP: Hey Eric, I got news for you. My eyes are rolling in the back of my head so hard. I mean, you know, half of those people are just, like, devout Bolsheviks. I mean, they're left of the most radical people in the world. If they're on the board of Fox, I imagine it's not getting better. It's only going to get significantly worse. You know? Certainly the wives are just, you know, avowed leftists. You know, you can say what you want about the others, but, you know, RINO, at best, in my opinion. And yeah no, it's not going to get better. It's not going to become more objective or fair. You know, they may come around if Trump wins the nomination, because that's what's best for them and their wallets, and whatever that may be, but, you know, they're not fighting for actual conservatives or for conservatives across America even a little bit.
