BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): I mean, that's good that Donald Trump comes out and defends his guy. But on some level, he's got to be ticked off. He sits down for 90 minutes with The New York Times, about an hour with the Washington Post to talk about foreign policy on the heels of President Obama doing the same with with The Atlantic magazine. He's saying, bring on the issues, be critical, be supportive. Instead, he's got to talk about what happened two weeks ago. As David Plouffe of all people, he's been making a lot of sense this election cycle, he tweets out, “A presidential campaign manager's job is to manage the circus, not become one.” One thing he says publicly, defend him. Behind the scenes, he's got to be saying, Corey, I got Secret Service, I got my own special security, keep your hands off people. I don't need you there. A week later, he's doing something similar. Justified or not, as a campaign manager, keep your hands off people. I need to become president of the United States. This does not help me. 

AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): But then again, you have to praise him for the loyalty. I'm sure Donald Trump, it sounds like he's standing by him because he appreciates Corey's loyalty. 

KILMEADE: Loyalty to what? 

EARHARDT: To him.
