‘But then you gain friends,’ former President Donald Trump tells interviewer Greg Gutfeld
The admission was made in an 面试 Mr Gutfeld did with Mr Trump, which started with Mr Gutfeld describing the toll his pro-Trump stance had taken on his personal life.
Mr Trump upended the political landscape when he launched is unconventional run for the White House in 2015 after years of speculation that he would do so.
“There was an irrational response to you,” Mr Gutfeld said. “And I lost friends when I would defend you.”
“But then you gain friends,” Mr Trump replied, a statement the Fox host seemed to agree with.
“I didn’t listen to my family members who were voting for you,” Mr Gutfeld continued. “When I tuned and started listening, then I lost all of my other friends.”
Some viewers found it odd that a laugh track was present during the interview, including journalists Aaron Rupar and Jan Wolfe.
In response to the confusion, Fox News told Raw Story that Greg Gutfeld “parodies current events and converses on key issues, bringing a comedic twist to the news. 此外, Gutfeld interviews newsmakers and culture critics on the major headlines of the week.”
It is rumoured that Mr Trump is planning to run in the 2024 总统选举. 然而, earlier this week, he appeared to upset the crowd at his rally after he promoted getting the Covid-19 vaccine.
“But I recommend taking the vaccines. I did it, it’s good, take the vaccines,” he told a rally in Cullman, a town in Alabama, a message that was met with boos.
