The on-again, off-again war between Donald Trump and Fox News is off again. Just five days after Trump told Fox he “won’t be doing any more Fox shows for the foreseeable future, ” the billionaire presidential candidate is slated to appear on today’s broadcast of “The O’Reilly Factor.”
It appears Trump sees time in Biblical terms. You know, how the Bible states that with God a day is as a thousand years and a thousand years as a day.
Call me a conspiracy theorist but this ongoing feud seems too convenient for the two combatants. I believe it is a well-orchestrated way to generate interest for both protagonists. Look for this pattern to continue to play out … for the foreseeable future.
Trump has turned his run for the Republican presidential nomination into a new reality show. With Fox as an important cast member, the two will milk this stroke of good fortune for all it’s worth.
Let’s just think of this as the “Trump and Ailes” show. A ratings bonanza! Both sides win in this fake war. Ailes laughs all the way to the bank, and the Donald is showered with media attention.
