BILL O'REILLY (HOST): You are are running in single digits in all the polls in New Hampshire. You've spent a lot of time there. You got a lot of media attention. I think we've been fair few Fox, although you gave the Fox & Friends guys a little jazz the other day, you said they were rooting for Trump. Do you really believe the Fox & Friends guys are rooting for Trump?

CHRIS CHRISTIE: Now, listen, I think that Doocy gets me on the air and asks me, you know, four questions on Donald Trump. You know, should Donald Trump have a do-over in Iowa? You know, once you ask it the third time, you should get it off it. So, you know me Bill, I've always been the kind of guy where I'll take a couple of questions that I think are kind of off the beaten trail--

O'REILLY: Yeah you're pretty straightforward, but you're dodging my question now. Do you think they're rooting for Trump in the mornings here?

CHRISTIE: I think Doocy might be rooting for Trump, yeah. 

O'REILLY: I think Doocy got promised he's going to be the ambassador to a very warm country. I don't know, I mean. I watch the show -- but I don't think that there's any surge for any one candidate on this network. I think it's all over the place. I mean, we got people rooting for you, got people rooting for Trump, people rooting for Cruz, Rubio, whatever it may be.
