In an interview with Chuck Todd about his upcoming GOP debate, Donald Trump wants to make sure everyone knows that he doesn't call the news outlets, the news outlets call him, and it pretty much goes downhill from there.
Says Trump: “Your statement is false. You said, ‘Donald Trump wanted to respond to a poll.’ Well, I didn’t want to respond. Your people called my office about 40 times asking me to go on the show. It’s dishonest what you’re saying, Chuck. I wish you would just sort of say it like it is. I think you would do better. I think you would get better ratings if you did that."
Watch, AFTER THE JUMP…
"I'm not going to kiss his ring and I'm not going to kiss any other part of his anatomy…This is exactly what is wrong with politics. It's show business over substance. If he had any courage at all, he would be running for president of the United States of America as opposed to manipulating the process from the outside."
