O'Reilly Reveals Source of Mueller's Trump Hate
The onetime king of cable news revealed President Trump called him after Robert Mueller's press conference.
Trump claimed that Mueller harbored a grudge ever since he refused to refund the special counsel's country club membership deposit.
O’Reilly called into Bernie and Sid in the Morning with Bernard McGuirk and Sid Rosenberg Thursday to relay the story of Trump calling him Wednesday night.
“President Trump called me last night around 11 o’clock,” O’Reilly said, noting the call was also about research for his upcoming book on Trump.
“He wouldn’t give him his deposit back for a country club membership that Trump owned and Mueller was moving,” O’Reilly said. “Mueller wanted $15,000 back and Trump said no.”
O’Reilly also claimed that Trump told him that Mueller lobbied for the job of FBI director after James Comey was fired. “Trump says Mueller didn’t like him because he turned him down to be the head of the FBI after he fired Comey. The president says that Mueller lobbied for the job and Trump turned him down.”
Mueller denies there were any hard feelings.
