Bill O’Reilly knows his pal, Donald Trump, is in trouble with women and minorities. But it’s not because Trump is a racist or a sexist. No, it’s because the women and minorities are “out of control” with their accusations. And O’Reilly know this because he’s a victim, just like Trump.
During his discussion with Trump last night, O’Reilly brought up Trump’s comments about Hillary Clinton that “the only thing” she has going for her “is the fact that she’s a woman.”
Trump doubled down. “It’s a fact,” he said. “She’s playing the woman card. It’s the only thing she’s got going. That’s it.”
O’Reilly was clearly concerned. But not because of the blatant misogyny behind saying such a thing about a former U.S. Senator and Secretary of State. But because Trump will be the real victim, just like O’Reilly is.
O’REILLY: What about this sexism thing? I don’t really know what this is. Any time I say, or criticize a woman, I’m accused of being a sexist. But any time I criticize the African American community in any way then I’m a racist. If I criticize illegal immigrants, then I’m anti-poor, anti-Hispanic. I think that’s gonna be a major theme directed against you. Any time you criticize Hillary Clinton, you’re a sexist. Are you ready for that?
Trump said he’s not at all concerned because “I’m gonna bring jobs back to this country.” Which is pretty much what he said about getting the African American vote before O'Reilly broke the internet with his totally not racist response that it would be hard to find jobs for African Americans because "many of them are ill-educated and have tattoos on their foreheads."
Trump obviously thinks "the women" are swooning over him and more soon will: “Nobody respects women more than I do,” he said. “I just absolutely killed everybody with the women. The women came out in droves.”
Fact check: "The women" hate Donald Trump and it’s a big problem for him.
O’Reilly didn’t challenge Trump directly on the point but was clearly not buying it. O’Reilly cited statistics that Trump was won “about 10 million votes” so far, massaged his ego by saying that it’s more than Mitt Romney had won at this point in 2012 and added that that’s why O’Reilly thinks Trump is “unstoppable.”
“However, you need 153 million votes more than you have,” O’Reilly continued. “You have to persuade them to vote for you and if you’re getting’ hit with ‘sexist,’ ‘racist’ ‘anti-poor’ ‘anti-Hispanic,’ which you’re going to get hit by every single day, you’re gonna have to have a shield to come back and I’m just wondering whether you have that strategy developed?”
“I think in my mind I do,” Trump said.
With that, Trump was back to boasting about what an awesome candidate he is and what a terrible candidate Clinton is.
Later, with Dana Perino, O’Reilly returned to the subject.
O’REILLY: The other thing is the women’s issue. The sexism thing, don’t you think this is out of control a little bit, along with the racism thing?
He allowed as how Trump’s comment on Clinton “was an extreme statement,” but, O'Reilly added, “That’s what Mr. Trump does.”
Perino told O’Reilly the remarks would offend “some women.”
But O’Reilly defended Trump again. “He would have said that about anybody, any competitor.”
However, Perino also noted that Trump’s favorability among women is at 35% while Clinton’s is at 54%. “Republicans cannot lose women by more than double digits,” she warned. “So that number has to improve in order for Republicans to win.”
“But that’s not a big gap. I mean, he can get it,” O’Reilly said.
We’ll see about that, Bill.
In order to safeguard yourselves from “out of control accusations of racism and sexism,” I suggest the following,
- Stop sexually harassing your subordinates
- Stop calling women fat pigs and the like
- Stop chalking Hillary’s accomplishments up to her being a woman
- Stop chalking Obama’s accomplishments up to him being Black
- Stop calling Mexican immigrants rapists
- Stop being shocked that Black restaurant patrons can enjoy a meal without cursing out the staff
- Stop claiming all Black people are illiterate forhead tattoo aficionados
- Stop pretending White people are an endangered species in this country.
In short, if you do not want to be called racist and/or sexist, STOP SAYING RACIST AND SEXIST SHIT!!!

Dear Jan: You nearly made me spew my breakfast all over my computer screen!
The STUPID is strong in these folks!
No girls allowed. No coloreds. No Iri….,
Boy that was close.
I’m speechless. Seriously. It’s like I’m walking backwards down the civil rights timeline.
Bill and his FOX buddies are going to keep busy mopping up the Trump messes. As Newshounds pointed out, even Megyn is swallowing her pride as she’s likely to softball him during her upcoming Trump interview.
As I noted previously, the beauty of Trump is conservatives like O’Reilly and Trump himself are going to burnout the default excuse: “political correctness”. It’s appeal will never wear out on Trump’s base; however, for the rest of us the right shot-gunning “political correctness” after every Trump brain fart is going to expose it as an an excuse to be an offense bore at the best, hateful bigot and bully at the worst.
