BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): [Trump] talked to [Chris Matthews] about abortion, when you know a more experienced candidate, because Donald Trump is making a billion dollars while everybody else is running for office. Any other candidate, most candidates to this point, would have said I'm not here to talk about abortion. That's something that's not even up [on] the docket. We're going to talk about it some other time.

STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): But those are largely political questions. And given the fact that he's running for president, he's got to answer those questions. But nonetheless -- 

KILMEADE: I'm pro life.

AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): Maybe don't answer the hypotheticals.

DOOCY: He only became a politician about six or seven months ago. This is new for him. 

EARHARDT: Yeah, which is why people like him. People like him because he's learning as he goes and he's not the establishment.
