We're gonna continue our conversation about governor Mitt Romney in his relationship with.
Donald from joining us now is Rich Lowry the editor and national review and Fox News contributor follow him.
On Twitter at Rich Lowry this is our bias back segment and we're talking really a little bit more about how the media is treating governor Romney.
-- media's had a field day with the Romney trump connection has -- -- just hates.
Donald Trump they consider him on obnoxious clowns certainly in the political arena and this is the case where I as a conservative actually agree with the mainstream media.
He is an obnoxious -- and I really do not get the strategy.
Mitt Romney associating himself with this guy at all.
Romney is already raising money hand over this is not as -- he really needs.
Trump's eighty doing that and I -- -- -- the following though and does have that star power is out.
Yes he does.
And the which means that hill attracting more attention when he saying -- idiotic and poisonous things like that he doubts that the president was born in this country witches.
Just absurd and I don't know why presidential candidate want to associate himself with such person.
Well and if he continues to do so -- governor Romney continues.
-- himself with with with Donald -- what are they need to do to do they need to be communicating a little bit better do you think this was a misstep in an accident.
I imagine they're doing it for money and they probably think.
The kind of leads disdain of trump doesn't necessarily translate out into -- kind is working class following to the extent he has won.
I just don't think that's enough of the upside and I just think is -- -- matter political hygiene.
He shouldn't associate is fear itself with someone whose main political calling card.
Is a poisonous conspiracy theory that there's been this huge cover up to.
Hide the fact that the president was born in Kenya.
So I really don't get it at all I don't think it's going to be huge issue in the election I think it's when he is in many controversies.
That you know what's gonna vote in November -- basis of Donald Trump it's absurd.
Out of sheer.
Grace and has a say hi Jean I don't think a presidential candidate should be -- and a hundred yards that -- Well ritual we did hear from governor Romney on Monday it in responsive to -- -- -- this and Romney said I don't agree with all the people who support me and my guess is they don't all agree with everything I believe in but I need to get fifty point 1% or Millar.
And -- appreciate to have the help.
But a lot of good people and Donald Trump certainly can rally a certain number of folks say it to pull the lever and end and vote for Romney.
I don't know that that.
I hit Donald Trump is not a proven vote.
Getter in any way imaginable and it's true when you wanna get to fifty plus one you gonna have a lot of people voting for -- I don't agree with you on everything.
But doesn't mean you have to gotten hold fundraisers with them which isn't a whole different level association.
If they were gonna start -- backtracking from from the Romney camp.
I don't know I would hope so and I think that -- also is pretty easily.
Edition of said he's -- completely wrong about birth certificate as a non issue and we shouldn't be discussing it.
But for whatever reason and part of that may have been united.
And -- -- has full force some sort of personal.
Bond with Donald and they they like the guy or for whatever reason he is very wary of them.
Crossing and so again this is not a huge issue at the end of the day people aren't gonna vote.
On the basis of it but -- -- -- Okay and do you think it's fair.
With the media is is doing their views on Donald Trump in the Romney relationship.
I mean it is it objective.
I mean they they hate him and they let their hatred show.
In this particular instance I understand the animus but sound.
-- that the media obviously it was gleeful over this because an opportunity to bash -- -- they don't like and then.
Bash Mitt Romney -- they also -- Right -- think he's some I think that -- that.
And we have our news -- coming up say you can see -- to thirty and 11:30 PM on Saturday's course hosted by our very own Jon Scott and white -- bash on that.
