BILL O'REILLY: The other thing I did in the interview was I made it a little personal. I said you know, you -- you're taking more attack and vitriol than any other president with the exception of Abraham Lincoln.

But if you read The United States of Trump, this statement that I wrote in that book remains true. I have never seen a human being able to absorb more punishment than Donald Trump.
SEAN HANNITY (HOST): So true, it's unbelievable.
O'REILLY: I mean, you and I, we can identify because we've been attacked for more than 20 years, each of us has.

O'REILLY: You bet, and -- but your listeners should understand there is a price to pay for being a traditional conservative American in this country.
