Trump is interviewed by The Hollywood Reporter. On Rupert Murdoch:
We have been friendly. I wouldn’t say friends, but we’ve been friendly. But he had some very evil tweets, and now they’ve been nice lately. I don’t understand it, just like I don’t understand how Roger could have allowed that first [debate] question to be asked. So I have really no answer for it. I think he views me not as a politician but as a great businessman. I’ve got a net worth of more than $10 billion…Now what I’ve heard is he is very impressed with what I’m saying. He is certainly very impressed with my poll numbers. When he looked at the ratings, what happened to the ratings at Fox [News], I think that makes him think about it even from a financial standpoint.
On Bill Cosby:
I’ve never been a fan. I had one bad experience with him. I was on Letterman, and he was following me on the show. He said, “Oh, I want to buy you a suit.” It was nice, he bought me a suit. And then he was on [the Today show], and my name was mentioned, and he went absolutely crazy. And I said, “What the hell was that all about?” I was never a fan. His humor was always, like, slow and stupid to me. I never saw it. And then he’s obviously got this stuff. What amazes me is he was so quiet and then you see these depositions. What was he doing? Was he drunk? You see he admitted all this stuff on top of everything else. I think he’s weird. And I never found his humor good at all. Just sit in a chair, talk very slowly? And I say to myself, “What’s this all about?”
