Bill O'Reilly: Obama 'Told Me Man-To-Man' That He Would Do Super Bowl Interview

Bill O'Reilly has revealed the apparent secret of landing an interview with President Obama: just ask him!

The Fox News host shared more details about his upcoming interview with President Obama before the Super Bowl on Sunday, February 2, including that he sealed the deal in person with the President at the Kennedy Center Honors celebration.

"The President told me man-to-man in December that he would do the interview and he has kept his word," O'Reilly said. "He doesn't have to do the interview. He knows it will be a tough one and he's coming in anyway."

True, there were probably some intensive negotiations going on behind the scenes, stretching over days or weeks, involving multiple representatives from both sides, but O'Reilly probably feels his one-on-one moment with Obama sealed the deal.

The live interview will take place at 4:30 EST and O'Reilly admitted that it will be difficult for him to keep their conversation "short."

"So whatever happens, happens!" he said.
