>> tonight, bernie, kristen, addition chris christie endorsing donald trump. caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone. the factor begins right now. ♪ i am bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. the tenth republican debate, that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. as usual, there are analysts saying who won and who lost the debate last night. that is meaningless because it's really up to you, thexu voter. the real test will come on super tuesday, just four days away. right now donald trump has 82 delegates, ted cruz 17. marco rubio 16, john kasich 6. ben carson 4. 1237 delegates are needed for the nomination. so you can see the race is not even close to being called. however, there is one undeniable fact, donald trump is a clear favorite.
so last night his two main contenders went after him hard. 40 years have you been funding liberal democratic politicians. >> i fund dollars you. >> you are welcome to have the check back. >> i gave him a check. >> gave me $5,000. >> never funded me. >> by the way, let's be clear, donald claims -- >> -- do you know why? i didn't want to. he. >> mr. trump, you are doing a great job. i have his book. >> that was entertaining, but didn't really advance a5rrñ talking points has said from the very beginning of the campaign that many americans are voting on emotion, not facts. that's why candidatesdi like trump and bernie sanders have gotten so much attention. not to it say those two men are policy-poor they're not. their primary appeal is personal. i think they both acknowledge that couple specific things from the debate. trump was criticized by the "the washington post" and others for saying.
this. >> you look at our borders, they're like swiss cheese, everybody pours in. we need to have a country or we don't have a country. we have at least is 11 million people in this country that came in illegally. they will go out. they will come back, some will come back, the best, through a process. they have to come back legally. >> now, the post is saying that trump is exaggerating the border is not as sieve like like it has been. the southern border is not secure. narcotics continue to flow through it at astounding rate and any thug who wants to can get in here. we saw that in the kate steinle murder case.';jñ trump is smart to make border security a corner stone of his campaign. interesting to watch the left wing respond to the trump phenomenon even though the press tries to pump up senator sanders nobody bxñé"÷utáhqwill defeat hillary clinton for the nomination. there is little drama in that race. at this point three republicans could still become the g.o.p. nominee. this morning after the
debate, hillary clinton actually helped trump. >> it'sf" been most surprising to me to see somebody who was appear' poo poo apropos and good company and had a reputation of being bigger in life. really traffic dollars in a lot of the prejudice and paranoia and some of the comments he has made which have been so divisive and mean-spirited doesn't quite fit with what i thought i knew about him. but he has really been offensive and in many respects surprising to those of us who did know him. >> that was very interesting. showing me that hillary clinton has already got her campaign theme that donald trump is biased and offensive. i don't believe three months ago mrs. clinton would have said that. but now she knows she may be facing the bombastic businessman head to head. however, hillary clinton must know that most americans feel she is a controversial figure and anyone she targets could gain from her scrutiny because millions of
americans don't really like the former secretary of state. later on bolling and rivera will handicap a possible trump vs. clinton race. for now i think the clinton campaign has changed its view. before south carolina, mr. trump's lead was kind of hypothetical. now it's reality. many pundits believe marco debat night but, again, that is your call.s+ responsible american voters have now seen the republicans hash it out 10 times. yet, it's estimated that 6% of g.o.p. voters are still undecided and others could change allegiance if other candidates drop out. that's what keeps rubio and cruz going because it's really hard to be undecided about donald trump. you either like him or you don't. one of the big advantages trump has is name recognition because of his television program. rubio and cruz are not well known by most americans, so they're essentially playing catch up as far as i.d. is concerned. that's why you rubio's feistiness last night may have helped him. even though a fraction of5÷ the american public watched the debate. the clips were all over social media and local news.
rubio took a page out of the trump playbook take it too-to-your opposition. unlike the past debates the senator did not concentrate on ted cruz he went after the poll leader. for his fares8l'úx trump stood firm and fought back the way he always does. using disdain and pointed criticisms. while some americans are ochesded by his blunt talk, worked for him so far. but now it's crunch time. it donald trump sweeps ton tuesday, he wins. marco rubio or ted cruz can stay close, then it's on to the big march 15th vote in:aíçl florida. a must-win for any republican nominee. also if trump beats cruz in texas on tuesday, the now, the two other candidates on the stage last night, i thought john kasich did a good job because he concentrated on policy and he has been very successful in ohio as we know. i like his economic vision. i like his healthcare stand and there is= no question the man knows what he is talking about. at this point kasich is really running for vice president. he can't overcome the three frontrunners.
i built my business with passion. but i keep it growing by making every dollar count. that's why i have the spark cash card from capital one. i earn unlimited 2% cash back on everything i buy for my studio. ♪ and that unlimited 2% cash back from spark means thousands of dollars each year going back into my business... that's huge for my bottom line. what's in your wallet?
here's a guy that buy as house for 1,179,000. he sell is it to a lobbyist who is probably here for 380,000, and then legislation is passed. you tell me about thisih guy? this is what we are going to have. >> here is a guy who inherited $200 million, if he hadn't inherited $200 million, do you know where donald trump would be right now? selling watches on times square. >> no, no, no. that is so wrong. >> impact segment tonight, we continue with our analysis of last night's republican debate. joining us from washington, d.c. chris wallace host of "fox news sunday." before we get to the debate chris christie earlier today endorsed donald trump, will that help him? >> i think it will. normally i don't think one politician endorsing another means much but donald trump isn't a politician, to to have a serious person a sitting governor, chris criminals city saying that he thinks trump is the one person in that stage who can be commander and chief and also can beat hillary clinton to get there, i think is kind of
legitimizer. it says serious people or at least this one serious person thinks he is qualified to be president of the united states. i think that's a big advantage, a big boost for donald trump. >> earlier this week rudy giuliani on the program and he is informally advising trump. i expect more of those things to happen. in the debate last night there was a lot of[- raucous behavior. a khat can a -- did it mean anything. the republican party. there are were a lot of shots taken, a lot of shots scored. precious little vision, almost no discussion, serious discussion of issues or, you know, what are you going to do how are you going to improve people's lives. and if you saw someone acting presidentially, on eyesight, bill, than i do. >> i think kasich was a voice of reason. it wasn't on very much.
he was off to the side, three main contenders. >> i thought he was at wendy's at one point. al don't you agree with me that the campaign on the republican side is being run on emotion? it's all emotion right now? >> yeah. >> but there is a a basis to success of donald trump which is that people are really fed up with washington, with politics and politicians as usual. alienation to express that and the combination of that plus going back to chris christie endorsing him says not only, you know, does he send a message but is he up to being president of the united states. you can't fight that kind of emotion and that kind of feeling with policy. you will lose all day long. and the other night they proved that aruba in particular comes out and say you know what? putting policy aside.
i'm going after this guy and he continue to do do it today. roll the tape. >> it's time to pull his mask off so that people can see what we are dealing with here. [cheers] >> what we are dealing with here, my friends, is a con artist. he is a con artist. and he is implying i'm fighting for you because i'm a tough guy. a tough guy? this guy inherited $200 million. he has never faced any struggle. he has never faced. the other day he told somebody, a protester, i'm going to punch you in the face. donald trump has never punched anyone in the face. [ laughter ] donald trump was the first guy that begged for secret service protection. >> i thought punch was going to punch me in a face in a couple interviews did i with him but he didn't. you have see that christie -- christie? you seeo$1s÷ that aruba is tryig to get assassination and part of this is as i said you can't blunt the trump train with policy. you have got to do it on trump's level, his playing
field, or am i wrong? >> that's right. what he is basically saying in all of that andús what he is was trying to say last night. he is the guy that is going to tell it like it is. he is saying trump's a phoney. trump working class hero he is the guy that hires illegal immigrants. he hires foreign people to work at his resort in palm beach rather than americans. and that he inherited his wealth. he is basically saying he is not a tough guy. he is not what he says he is. he is a phoney. i don't know if that's going to work. the main point i would make, bill, is why didn't he bring this up months ago? you wait until four days? >> he wanted to do whatñt you just suggested. i think in the beginning rubio in particular and some of the other candidates want to do do policy. they got nowhere. trump gets stronger and stronger and stronger. this is the last gasp. we can't keep doing.
i have got to get attention. this is attention getter for marco rubio. gets him on social media and on the news as i pointed out. people don't know who rubio and cruz and kasich are. we think because we are in the business, that everybody knows what we know. it's a very small window that watches television news or even reads the newspaper anymore. so i guess rubio's advisors say hey, look, you have got to start throwing these bombs because we need you to move up in the polls rapidly. we need to you get attention. and i think that's what's going on here. >> well, yeah. i just think, you know, the polls indicated, this was stopping a is summer fling a long time ago, sometime between december and feble february it 5th. somebody should have said to marco rubio, he is not going away. take your best shot at him. this was all research they have had for months should have unloaded a month ago. >> i can understand the monday morning quarterbacking on that. i think it's difficult although i have got to say rubio looks like he is
having a good time. first time i ever seen him on the debate stage looking like he is having fun. remember, jeb bush tried this, and it just fell flat. you know, for some reason. bush didn't look comfortable doing it. rubio and cruz look like they like giving trump the jabs. it looks like it's fun for them to do it it anyway. who do you have coming up on your sunday program. >> we know we are going to have ted cruz and nobody has more riding on super tuesday than ted cruz. i suspect we are going to have one of the other leading candidates on the show as well. >> on the democraticmp side, my analysis correct in your opinion that it's really not even a close race anymore between hillary clinton and sanders if you look at the polling in the democratic breakdown one caveat, unless and i agree it's a long shot unless bernie sanders finds some way to break into the african-american vote. if he keeps getting beat by 40% or 50%, he has got no chance. >> no chance in south carolina.
they vote on saturday. okay? so by the time youacome in to be hillary clinton 58, bernie sanders 42% or something like that. so, i mean, after that you saw what happened when trump won south carolina and nevada. the media came. in they are going to do that with hillary u too. i like him. good with you when he came on the program. i don't see him having the juice. last word. >> i think super tuesday is important. he could win some states, massachusetts, minnesota, colorado, oklahoma, vermont. let's see how he does. but i agree he is in trouble and he has got to find a way to survive a very tough month of march. >> chris wallace, everyone. directly ahead kirsten powers how she, liberal woman, is processing the brawl last night. bernie goldberg on whether hillary clinton's elm brals of president obama is is a smart campaign move. factor is coming right back. /@ ñ

[cheers and applause] >> i watched him meltdown on the stage like i have never seen anybody. >> let's stay focused on the subject. >> swimming 3508. >> let's talk about your plans. >> every night he says five things, everyone is dumb, going to make america great again, win, win, win. lines around the street. every night. same thing.k# republican debate last night. joining us from washington kirsten?uá powers. what stood out for you? >> well, obviously ted cruz
and marco rubio came ready to tangle with donald trump, finally. and i think that rubio in particular was particularly strong on that front. he was able to do it while, you know, with a smile on his face and seeming very confident and not getting rattled by trump. at the same time, trump didn't really get rattled by it. trump had a really strong night. we didn't see a lot of the stuff that we saw in the presouth carolina debate where he seemed sort of border line unhinged. he taum and strong and on message and i don't think they were really on game. >> trump convince his people to support him or that he really has to do there with him? >> i think in the debate like that last night he isn't just keeping his supporters with him. i think when he has an he seems very reasonable. agree with the republican
party with certain things like planned parenthood, like universal healthcare. it's somebody ohio think is probably appealing now to group of people, little bit of a general election, frankly, but i also think people who are maybe not with him already. chris christie endorsing trump. do you think that matters? >> i think it's a big deal, yeah. >> big deal? >> yeah. he is obviously, look, he is respected, he is not the top republican. he wouldn't have had to drop out if he had been, but he is still respected. he is a governor. he is somebody who, i think people take seriously. and that he is willing to put his support behind trump, gives him sort of the being this guy is legit. >> because rubio2x has gotten a lot of endorsements, cruz not so many. but, yeah, okay. i agree that having a sitting governor who is a presidential candidate is very blunt. >> yeah. >> christie will help him. hillary clinton's sound by the about trump today was very, very interesting.
and you know that mrs. clinton doesn't do anything spontaneous. and i'm not saying that as a dig. >> right. >> she says all right, i'm going on the morning show and here is what i want to get out. she knows the questions. i don't know if they tell her the questions but she knows where it's going. she goes, you know,3he used to be a real reasonable guy. we really have fun, bill and i with him and he used to be okay. but now he is a monster. [ laughter ] >> well, i don't think she would have said that if she didn't think he was going to get the nomination. she is setting the tone like i don't know what happened. he is a werewolf and it was a full moon and he just gouged six people's throats out and i never knew he was p &c @&c@ of people think donald trump is going to be the nominee and if you are hillary clinton you have to prepare for that possibility, that very high possibility. she also have to explain why she used to be friends with him. >> because he was nice back
then. >> that's the story that she has come up with,iú that all this stuff didn't exist. >> so you are agreeing with me that this was a strategic plan, put it out there, because now we didn't think it was going to happen, but now i will make a prediction. >> you know, trump, if he does get the nomination is going to go after her like nobody has ever gone after a political candidate. >> maybe john adams, thomas jefferson, people don't know how much they hated each other. but hillary isn't going to do it herself. she has a little army that that she has hired. they are going to do it, the media matters people. the sleazy far left websites, and a few other people, i don't see her getting involved with that kind of inventriclive, do you? >> no, but i also don't know -- i don't care how big her army is i don't know that it's going to make much difference. is going to be
so much worse than anything they are going to come up with against time. >> women may say, you know, she might make her sympathetic if he overdoes it. >> sure, definitely. but i think that those women are probably already with her. you know, i think that the is going to bring up things that nobody brings up. >> right. so she is going to have to answer questions that she has never had to answer before. >> she won't answer them. i can guarantee it. >> if she is on a debated stage for where him it's going to be harder. >> i'm not going to answer these kind of questions. this is about policy. he can say whatever he wants. i'm not lowering myself to that i know she is going to do that. >> she may do that. the problem is people in this country don't think it's lowering your standards to answer a question. >> absolutely. she has to maintain her base. her base is -- we are going to discuss that with bolling and rivera coming up. she has a pretty good base. plenty more ahead as the factor moves along this
evening. hypothetical race as mentioned between hillary clinton and donald trump. we have polling data on it bolling and rivera. we hope you stay tuned to those reports.

is that a good idea? joining us from miami the purveyor of bernard goldberg.com mr. goldberg. you say? >> i say as of now yeah, it's a very good idea for her to run for barack obama's third term? i suspect it won't be such a good idea after she wins the nomination and has to run against somebody whose last name isn't senators, -- sanders. next week is the sec primary. there are a lot of black votes in the south. and barack obama is still immensely popular with african-american voters. so hillary clinton is either courting them or pandering to them, whichever word you prefer. and, you know, it makes a certain amount of sense except according to the most recent gallup poll 71% of the american people think we are on thepç wrong track so. when she is running in a general election, i don't think this idea of, you
know, latching on to barack obama is going to sound like such a great idea. >> but she won't do it then. once she gets the nomination. she will do a totally different campaign. it will be women centric and minority centric. >> right. but she has got to thread a d needle there why all the agree that the african-american turnout isn't going to nearly as great for hillary clinton as it was for barack obama. if she distances herself too much from barack obama, she runs the risk of driving that turnout even lower. >> she is not going to do that she will distance herself on foreign policy. >> she is threading a needle and it's not going to be that easy. >> all right. republican side, chris christie endorsement. does it help trump? >> yeah. the more main stream sane republicans who endorse him, it makes donald trump look a little less, in my view a little less insane.
but i think it's clear that chris christie has decided he is tired of being a republican governor in a very blue state and now he is running for attorney general. i mean, that's what this is about as far as i'm concerned. >> yeah. i think you are right. endorsement from christie would have offered him the attorney general's post. and he will offer rudy giuliani, who was on this program earlier this week, informally advising trump director of homeland security. i'm almost positive that trump will do both of those things. >> one thing very quickly, that hillary clinton is running on barack obama's coat tails. that's what she thinks. except barack obama doesn't have any coat tails. when he is on the ballot, he wins. when he is not on the ballot. democrats lose. they lose in midterm elections, they lose in governor's races they lose in state ledge legislatures.
barack obama has no coat tails. hillary clinton may want to think about that before she ties herself to closely to him. >> i think you are right. what she is doing now is designed to get minority voters to put her into the nomination and that's going to work. all right, number one so if she gets the nomination, then barack obama, when he is useful to her. in certain places. >> yes. >> will be brought up. but she will start to distinguish herself from him had on foreign policy, has to do that. has to. >> i agree. >> on the border. and maybe on a few other things. >> i agree completely. when he is useful, she will attach herself to him and hang out black vote. when he is not, you know,. >> who? who? >> and we're not pointing out mrs. clinton with any scorn, all politicians do this kind of stuff. i mean, that's just the name of it. >> but when it comes to race, all politicians
pander, but when it comes to race, democrats are in a >> all right. bernie goldberg, everybody. when we come right back, bernie and rivera on a possible race between clinton and trump. we have polling for bolling. right back. /n (patrick 1) what's it like to be the boss of you?

"u.s.a. today" clinton 43,
trump 45 a. quinnipiac clinton 44, trump 43%. dead heat. >> do you believe the polls? >> i do not believe the polls are relevant. in that. regard. here is why. trump has not taken on hillary. he gist gave her a glancing blow to mute the effectiveness of bill clinton as her surrogate when he undercut hillary's war on woman approach by saying you married the worst women nicer. he took bill clinton out of the early stages of the race. he has not gone after her in any meaningful way. i don't trust those polls. >> will that help or hurt trump? because, remember, if he goes too much, it might drive women who committed to either side into hillary's camp. >> i think that trump is responsible. just with that glancing blow with a lot of the negative that surrounds hillary now certainly with younger women. >> this is all about
coalitions, the presidential race, not the primary. primary is about emotion as we said. but the presidential race, what mrs. clinton is:" counting on or what mr. trump is going to have to have to go in and destroy, hispanic americans, liberal women. and suburban housewives all coming together and voting for hillary, some of the numbers, the numbers are pretty interesting, registered among hispanic americans, democratic party a 6%. 227% independent. just 14% of hispanic americans are registered republicans, and it's lower in the black precincts. so trump has has to go in: hispanics like me. >> he won the nevada caucus. >> this is favorability bernie sanders 19%. hillary/ycu clinton 39% favorable among hispanics. marco rubio 8% favorable. donald trump 7%. ted cruz 7%.
if trump gets the nomination, he has a lot of work to do. >> he has a lot of work to do. again, what he said last night in the debate was when hillary clinton's name came up in that exchange with marco rubio he said i haven't hit her yet. >> it will be bloody. >> he won't holdd. back. he showed his hand with that as geraldo pointed out accurately when that start to do bubble up. >> he whacked it. >> start to do call him a misogynist or whatever he was calling him boom, right at bill and they cowered in the corner. he won't be afraid to do it again. you are right back b. one thing though, the latino vote is, going to be, i think, the decider in a general election. if he does anywhere near what he is capable of doing, we saw in nevada, i know geraldo thinks a small sample, double the size ever in the history of nevada caucus. if he hits around 40%, he can win. >> misog nist is not
somebody you pay to get your neck. it's somebody who hates women. >> you watch trump take a hard turn on the latino and immigration, once he secures the nomination as he surely. >> turn where. >> he already started it by softening this forced deportation, citizen children. everybody goes. by saying they go and the good ones can come back, this is the beginning of a policy. you have to see through the. >> what could the policy possibly be? he is going to deport. >> if you are here for 10 years and not crad any crime. you have a family, all you have to do is go home, touch base, and you are on this priority list 102 and you come back in 12 months, i promise you. >> you okay with this. >> i'm absolutely okay with designing a policy that is compassionate anduu?t practical. >> geraldo and i almost got in a fist fight over this policy. >> and we can do it right
now. >> geraldo said that waso2 awful. insensitive of donald trump. >> evolving. >> but the good news for donald trump is that maybe more latinos will evolve to donald trump's way of -- >> -- donald trump has -- >> what isn't speculative is hillary clinton. you saw the sound bite this morning. donald used to tab nice guy. he has turned into a werewolf, i don't know why. he is biased in this. offensive. that's what her campaign going to be against him. he is a nut. >> got to be a nut to get the republican nomination. the republicans have a suicide complex. you can't have birth control, you can't have gays married. >> if you are a nun you can't have it. you are a pop began -- propagandi[#rñ >> narrow the field. i want a jack kempf. >> you have one. >> be a republican you can be. >> you have one, kasich. and he can't win. >> excellent vice president.

back of the book segment tonight. listen to this. according to the tax policy center, a nonpartisan washington based research group, the top 1% of american wage earners, you're looking at me right now, pay 44% of all federal income tax. 1% pays 44%. these are the people bernie sanders is demonizing. they number about 1.3 million american citizens. that's it.
not only that, an estimated 45% of all american workers pay absolutely no federal income tax at all. it's an estimated 77.5 million families. stuart is here. who's the villain? >> i'm getting hot under the collar about bernie sanders. a tiny fraction of the population pays almost half of all the taxes. but bernie sanders wants more from that top -- >> and we're bad guys to boot. >> yes. look, this is confiscation. in many parts of the country, right now you will pay more than half your income in taxes. california, new york city, et cetera, et cetera. and bernie sanders wants more. that's confiscation. that is you've got it, i want it, i need it, i'm taking it. i've seen this before, bill. i'm a refugee from this kind of socialism, and i don't like it. >> you're talking about britain. >> i am indeed. >> i think the villainy spreads out from bernie sanders.
congress has made these tax laws. congress is the taxing agent, and they've set it up so that 1.3 million citizens who are doing very well, are now the main provider for the federal apparatus. i think they should spread it out a little more and there are ways to do that. >> yes, there are ways to do that, when you have this tiny fraction paying so much of the tax burden, you have to spread it out more. >> you can do it without being punitive to people who aren't doing that well. i would figure a small value added tax, just to keep things rolling, because you're right, confiscation. one of the things that bernie sanders wants is free education. in england, and you correct me if i'm wrong, you take a test when you're 16 years old, is that correct? >> that's correct in my day, correct. >> the test defines who's going to the public college paid for
by britain. the others are doomed to blue collar existence. >> that's correct. >> because nobody in that area can pay for private. you can go to oxford if you have $100,000 to spend. grad school and things like that, you can get into oxford if you pay the freight and other private schools. so what they've set up in england and other places is not free public education, it's free throw public education if it at 16 years old you pass a test, by i couldn't have done. >> back in the '70s when i graduated from college, only 2% of british kids went to university. >> now it's about 50%. >> a lot more now. but back in those days, yes, we went for free, but we were educated and elite. can you do that? can you pay for everybody to go to college for free? no, you can't. bernie sanders says you can if you tax the rich more. that's villainy.
>> and health care in britain is what, good, fair? >> it's good. and it's paid for by general taxation. and that's extremely high. when i left england in the '70s, tax rate was 90%. now it's about 50%, something like that. but the country was a wreck. it was a wreck because of socialism. it grieves me to see exactly the same thing happening. >> but bernie's not winning. on that note, stuart varney, seth myers, bernie sanders, ireland, and me. the "tip of the day" coming up. pet moments are beautiful, unless you have allergies. then your eyes may see it differently. only flonase is approved to relieve both your itchy, watery eyes and congestion. no other nasal allergy spray can say that. complete allergy relief or incomplete. let your eyes decide. flonase changes everything.
if you buy any book, you get a free copy of the constitution. now the mail. >> i disagree, bill. trump has been very good to cnn. last night it was a more aggressive strategy by cruz and rubio. that the network didn't control. >> good for you, george. good for you. all republican senators need a wakeup call. the house will easily pass kate's law and the senate should vote stand alone on it.
>> oh, come on. it was an historical mistake, joe. no question about that. and today is a lot different than 1984. this country is threaten bid foreign terrorists, awash with narcotics and can't provide enough good paying jobs for its citizens. an open border and amnesty policy is no longer acceptable with most americans. >> i can't believe that show is just two weeks away, jim. all new stuff at the microsoft theater. so miller and i will be in fairfax, virginia, at the eagle bank arena may 7.
>> you'll like jesus, lincoln, and kennedy, scott. it's great that you are reading instead of texting. got to get them to read. and "factor tip of the day," seth meyers who a big bernie sanders fan said this. >> there was also bill o'reilly, who knows how to overreact like no one else. >> you know, look, i'm fleeing. if bernie sanders gets elected president, i'm fleeing, going to ireland. >> i hate to break it to you, bill, but if you think ireland will be an oasis from the bernie sanders socialist country, in ireland, everyone is entitled to free basic health care and free throw tuition. >> yes, all 5 million people in the republic can get government-run health care, seth, that's true. but it's a little dicey in some
places. good luck for getting government run health care for 320 million folks here, and free college tuition is predicated upon testing as we just talked about for teenagers, dopey teenagers. and to attract people like me, ireland gives nice tack breaks to published authors. don't think bernie is going to propose that. "factor tip of the day," late night guys are amusing, but sometimes a little dense. that is it for us tonight. please check out the fox new factor website. spout off about us anywhere in the world. name a town if you wish to opine. word of the day, no intemperance when writing to "the factor." again, thanks for watching us
tonight. on monday, we'll have the super tuesday preview with a whole bunch of folks. i'm bill o'reilly. please remember the spin stops right here because we're definitely looking out for you. breaking tonight. less than 4 hours after a rousing republican presidential debate that bordered on a brawl, front-runner donald trump shakes up the race yet again with a surprise important endorsement. good evening, everybody. welcome to "the kelly file. " we are days out from march 1, the most significant day of the primary season to date. just hours ago, a major announcement. at a trump campaign rally in ft. worth, texas, mr. trump introducing his newest advocate, new jersey governor
