Donald Trump on Roger Ailes: ‘He’s a Friend of Mine That Won’t Do Anything for Me’

By Chris Ariens 

In the midst of the news of the Pope calling out Donald Trump, this didn’t get much attention yesterday.

On Stephen K. Bannon‘s Brietbart News Daily show on Sirius XM Thursday morning, Trump’s feud with Fox News came up.

Trump: The worst treatment I get is from Fox. Between Karl Rove who’s a moron, between Krauthammer – he can’t say anything good no matter what.

Bannon: How can they treat you badly? You have a very strong, personal relationship with Roger Ailes, how can that happen?

Trump: Well I don’t know. Roger Ailes and I like each other, but he doesn’t do anything for me. That I can tell you. He certainly doesn’t do anything. In one way, he’s very professional, he won’t lift his finger to help me. Roger Ailes will not lift his finger to help me. Which is fine, I mean he’s a professional and maybe that’s the way it’s supposed to be, but I get treated very badly by Fox.

Bannon: Do you think they’re over the top with Rubio support? Do you get a sense that they’re biased toward Rubio?

Trump: They’re in love with Rubio, why, I have no idea, but they are in love with Rubio.

Bannon: Are Nikki Haley and Rubio going to become the Ken & Barbie now of Fox News? Are you going to see them nonstop, 24/7 since she endorsed him?

Trump: Well, I don’t know, but they are in love with Rubio and it’s amazing to me. And after he cratered in the debate, they protected him. And Megyn Kelly, is you know, she’s very biased. And I look at it and in my opinion, I get treated the worst by far by Fox. And I do like Roger, he’s a friend of mine, but he’s a friend of mine that won’t do anything for me – so I don’t know if that’s called a friend.”
