On Tuesday night Eric Bolling was substituting for Bill O’Reilly. If I may, he was not doing a very good job at it.
At one point Bolling was interviewing Lt. Col. Ralph Peters on Donald Trump and foreign policy.
At one point, after Peters mentioned that the Iranians out-negotiated the Obama administration and previous American administrations, Bolling replied that since Trump had negotiated real estate deals in New York he could effectively negotiate with the mullahs in Teheran. Evidently, Bolling has mastered the art of the non sequitur.
Donald Trump is little league compared to the Iranians. … I’m disgusted with both candidates, but the notion that somehow Donald Trump, four bankruptcies to his credit, who relies on lawyers to get him through, is going to be able to deal with the Iranians or Vladimir Putin or the Chinese, that is wishful thinking from the Trumpettes out there…. Trump is not remotely equipped—this is big league stuff—
When I hear people say, we need an outsider… if you think an outsider is going to come in and run a more successful foreign policy than people who have really done it for a long time, good luck. Do you want a doctor to perform a serious operation on you who has never touched a scalpel…. Experience is not a dirty word. In foreign policy and military affairs it matters.
One might add that experience also matters in running a presidential campaign.
