BILL O'REILLY (HOST): In another development, more than 20 progressive organizations posted a letter on the net saying that Donald Trump is dangerous and inciting hate and violence. One of those groups is MoveOn, who itself incited violence in Chicago by urging people to disrupt the Trump rally last week. Joining us now from New York City, Dana Perino. Sometimes I feel like I'm in the twilight zone, remember that show?
DANA PERINO: A little bit.
O'REILLY: Okay. So MoveOn, I mean, they are responsible for all this Trump craziness last Friday. And then they write this little note, oh, "we condemn Trump." It's like -- are people buying this? What do you think?
PERINO: Well, there is a couple things, like with MoveOn.org, in particular, one of the things that they know is that they can rile up their base using Donald Trump as their foil, and of the ways they make money is by exploiting a thing or a person. In this case they chose Donald Trump. And so, MoveOn.org has a particular interest because they need to raise some money, so they can keep in business as they say.
O'REILLY: Alright, so you think by that by demonizing Trump and attacking Trump, people who go to that website, send them donations, that's what it is all about for them.
