DONALD TRUMP: He actually in his own way is tougher because he'll ask questions in a very nice way that are much tougher questions than what she was doing, but they did get their best rating in 11 years. That's pretty good. You know, normally, if you do that, you have a success, so they got their best ratings, and they want to fire them the head of CNN. Everything is like April Fools' Day nowadays, right? You get good ratings; you're supposed to get a bonus, right? And you know what I did? I said, "I'll do the show, but I'm not going against Sean Hannity." Is that right? That's why I was on eight o'clock. They had me on at nine. I said, "wait a minute but nine? Sean is on at nine." I said, "Nope, I'm not doing it." Then they'll said, "We'll call it off." I don't care, they said they wanted to do it; I didn't want to do it. They said, "We'll do it at eight." Now, how nice is that?
