Donald Trump has surged to the top of many national Republican polls, and he told Sean Hannity he’s got better things to do than talk to the Fox News host Wednesday.
“A lot of people think I’m just having a good time — this isn’t a good time,” Trump told Hannity Wednesday. “I think you’re a fantastic guy, Sean, but I don’t need to be doing this. This isn’t really fun. I’m not having a good time.”
Hannity seemed to take the jab in stride, laughing it off.
Trump went on to say running for president has cost him a lot of money, and called Macy’s decision to end its business partnership with him a “disgrace.”
He also called NBC and Univision weak for caving to what he deems political correctness in wake of his stand against illegal immigration, which was particularly strong when he called all undocumented Mexicans “rapists.”
Trump has been a media force for over a month, both appearing across MSNBC, CNN and Fox News while being the lead subject of most of those network’s news hours.
Fox News producer Jesse Watters on Wednesday welcomed a potential Donald Trump presidency, saying that the billionaire “is not going to let illegal aliens come to the country and murder our women.”
On Wednesday’s edition of Outnumbered, Fox News host Andrea Tantaros argued that Trump’s controversial comments which referred to Mexicans as rapists were the best possible way to launch his campaign.
“The Republicans have been crying and calling out for some energy in their party, someone who doesn’t speak in platitudes,” she explained. “They finally have it. I’ve seen on campaigns all the time… you see candidates reacting to a news cycle. I have never seen a news cycle react to a candidate.”
“I mean, Donald Trump made his announcement, talked about immigration, and now you see the news cycle follow,” Tantaros continued. “He couldn’t have planned it better.”
“He is hitting on something, something that people in this country are saying. You know what? The guy has a point.”
Watters agreed: “Right, Trump has tapped into the collective backbone of this country, and he’s the only one willing to say that the emperor has no clothes. And people like that.”
“President Trump is not going to bow to the Saudi King,” Watters insisted. “President Trump is not going to waste half a billion dollars on solar panels. Donald Trump is not going to let illegal aliens come to the country and murder our women. So people respond to that.”
Co-host Kennedy Montgomery, however, suggested that Trump had tapped into something much darker in the Republican Party.
“It’s the collective femur,” Montgomery said. “It’s like the opening scene in 2001 where, unfortunately, it a very, very vocal group people who are going to beat each other over the heads with that femur.”

Bill O’Reilly sent one of his employees to ambush different members of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, accusing them of enabling the murder of Kate Steinle by declaring the city a “sanctuary city” where undocumented workers can access health care, police and fire assistance and other public services without fear of deportation or other forms of government reprisal.
City Supervisor and human rights attorney Jane Kim told the Fox representative that the issue at play in Kate Steinle’s death isn’t immigration, but gun control, and how to keep weapons out of the hands of felons and the mentally ill.
Katy Tang, on the other hand, excoriated the microphone-wielding Fox employee for ambushing her and accusing her of complicity in a murder.
“Of course Fox News would be this rude,” she said, turning to walk away. When he chased her and continued to pepper her with questions about her role in the death of Kate Steinle’s death, she said, “You’re interviewing the wrong fucking person.”
Scott Wiener didn’t even break his stride as he made his way to his office.
“Fox News is not real news,” Wiener said calmly. “And you’re not a real reporter. I talk to real news only.”
