"George & Barbara Bush are watching this with immense concern and paying very close attention to how Governor (Jeb) Bush is fairing and I think that they and those around them are as puzzled as are the rest of us are about Trump's durability. It is a lot like what happened in 1992. In his diary, which I used for the book, he (Bush 41) says repeatedly of Ross Perot, that he is a strange man, he is a strange little ego maniac. It won't last, it won't last, it won't last. Perot ended up being significant enough to take nearly a fifth of the American vote that year."

--Jon Meacham on the parallels between Ross Perot in 1992 and Donald Trump today.

Pulitzer Prize winner and author of "Destiny and Power: The American Odyssey of George Herbert Walker Bush", Jon Meacham, joined Kilmeade & Friends to discuss the parallels between Ross Perot, whom many, including Pres. Bush 41, felt wouldn't be a factor come election time in 1992 and those who have been dismissing Donald Trump's candidacy today.
