    Dana vs. Eric
    Round 2
    Friday

    • Eric can get on my nerves pretty easily, but to give the devil his due, when he hosts The Factor he usually has a good mix of guests, some of whom you don’t ordinarily see on the show. That said, I get to see a lot more of NCIS in real-time when The O’Bolling Factor is on.

      • Michael T

        Yeah, I have to confess…when he’s not discussing Trump he’s a decent host.

        • The best sub-host O’Reilly ever had, as best as I can recall as there have been quite a few over the years, was John Kasich. Laura Ingraham and Juan Williams also very good. I may be hallucinating this but I think Alan Colmes hosted for O’Reilly on one occasion.

          • Grandpa D

            IIRC, another good sub, although this goes back a few years, was John Gibson.

          • sky303

            That makes me miss The Big Story …

          • Cecelia

            Love John Gibson.

          • Fox News Fan

            They should let Kennedy Nation fill in and be up against herself. Or let her fill in some Friday against Stossel.

            Laura Ingraham has drunk the Trump koolaid.

            What about Jesse Waters or Gut? I mean Jesse at least beats Bolling in the ratings for guest hosts..

          • I don’t think Laura liking Trump disqualifies her any more than not liking Trump disqualifies her. She does a good job as a host. Even though she blocked me on twitter.

          • Marty

            Why? Did you say something anti-Trumpian?

          • She blocked me years ago and I’ve never figured out why. I guess I’m just misunderstood.

          • Marty

            Her loss.

          • Cecelia

            Maybe your work as a chronicler of the antics of her old boyfriend Keith Olbermann.

    • Fox News Fan

      And ratings should be back up by 800,000 to 1M viewers with Eric gone. The guy is poison.

      Notice today how that lowlife idiot had the nerve to attack Cruz over the “Bible thing” but he made no mention at all of Trump questioning Dr Ben Carson’s faith or Ted Cruz’s. He shills continually for Trump like so many on the network do…

      • Marty

        On The Five, Juan was trying to make a point about how fewer candidates in the mix might help a particular candidate and Eric interrupted Juan saying he was so sick of hearing this scenario. Later Juan interrupted Eric. Eric told him not to interrupt. Probably a silly observation, but it ticked me off.

        • Fox News Fan

          That was the same point Karl Rove made on FNC Sat & Gasparino on FBN. It ticked Trump off and he was attacking them on twitter. It’s true. Numerous candidates have gotten out and Trump hovers around that 35% ceiling.

          • gc

            i called the same here pre-rove. not like it is not obvious. in addition to the obvious is the Kasich resume for VP. Rubio will have great reason to choose Kasich, trump would require an Hispanic, but he will never be the nominee.

          • Michael T

            If much of the GOP electorate wasn’t in denial about HRC’s formidability, Kasich/Rubio would make more sense. Electability should be a bigger issue than it’s been so far. But that’s just me.

            Is the GOP making a huge mistake if they end up nominating Donald Trump who has even higher unfavorable numbers than HRC with her untrustworthiness baggage?

            Obviously, it’s too early to know for sure. But I do wish some Trump fans on Fox News would dial it back a bit.

  • Fox News Fan

    Concha on Trump’s VP choice: Kasich

    http://www.mediaite.com/online/by-escaping-trumps-wrath-john-kasich-appears-to-be-his-1-vp-choice-but-theres-a-big-catch/

    Will this pick be better than his last? You know…the one who he claimed would be the Republican nominee back in September…… current front runner Carly Fiorina. =)

    How early did she bail out?? ha ha

  • Marty

    MoJo uh oh. The real take away for me was Mika saying something to Trump about deportation questions.
    Trump responds, “Nothing too hard, Mika.”

    • GSwizzle83

      I am not surprised at all. They have been rooting for Trump almost since day one.

      • Cecelia

        Mark Levin says Fox has been rooting for Rubio.

    • Michael T

      Just noticed quite a large number of tweets with the hashtag #NothingTooHardMika, which of course I find amusing.
