Bill O’Reilly spoke with Dana Perino at the 2016 Republican National Convention on Fox News on Thursday a couple of hours before GOP nominee Donald Trump was set to take the stage and deliver the most important speech of his life. That speech was leaked ahead of time. As Matt reported, the transcript reveals that Trump will be focusing on law and order and exposing Hillary Clinton’s failed foreign policy and corrupt career.
“It’s an attack on the Democratic Party,” O’Reilly analyzed.
Yet, it is a tempered attack. Nowhere in the speech, O’Reilly noticed, is the nickname “Crooked Hillary” used. Just “my opponent.”
O’Reilly and Perino were surprised by the omission, considering one of Trump’s favorite pastimes is to come up with nicknames for his opponents. His supporters are undoubtedly expecting him to do it again on the last night of the convention.
Can Trump resist using the nickname in front of such a big crowd tonight? We’ll soon find out.
