“I think I could hold my own in a debate against Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders or Joe Biden or any of the Republicans.”

O’Reilly asserted that he could stand his ground in any debate because it’s his job to be cognizant of what’s going on and because he is a “solution-driven guy.”

“If I were Donald Trump I would be very very friendly to you over the coming months,” Kimmel joked.
