Bill O’Reilly has decreed that Donald Trump’s refusal to disavow the support of former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke is a “non-story” that only an unfair, liberal media would cover.
Unless you’ve been on another planet, you probably know that Trump had three opportunities on CNN’s State of the Union to disavow Duke’s support. Each time, Trump turned them down, ridiculously claiming that he was unfamiliar with Duke – even though he knew Duke was a Klansman in 2000. Later, Trump blamed his earpiece – even though it was perfectly obvious that he heard what host Jake Tapper was asking.
But during his Talking Points commentary Monday night, O’Reilly declared the matter a non-story cooked up by a biased media. Even worse, O’Reilly used that to excuse Trump’s declaration that he’ll weaken the First Amendment if elected president.
O’REILLY: If Trump is actually the Republican nominee, we can expect a media assault on him that will be unprecedented in America. Every single day, the press will hammer Trump, exposing every part of his life. Trump is getting ready.

TRUMP: So that when the New York Times writes a hit piece, which is a total disgrace, or when the Washington Post, which is there for other reasons, writes a hit piece, we can sue them and win money instead of having no chance of winning because they are totally protected.

O’REILLY: Now, Mr. Trump talking about what he would do as president — attempt to change the libel laws — but he can’t do that now. And believe me, the press is just waiting. A preview is this David Duke stuff, a complete nonstory. I have spoken with Trump hundreds of times and I have never heard him run down anyone because of race. He doesn’t care about that.
Well, apparently O’Reilly wasn’t listening. There’s Trump’s attack on Hispanics as rapists and drug dealers, his call for a “total and complete shutdown” of Muslims entering the U.S., his ethnic attack on the Hispanic judge of the Trump University fraud case, he bogusly questioned President Obama’s American citizenship and Trump gave his stamp of approval - on Fox News - after his supporters beat up a Black Lives Matter protester. And right there on The O’Reilly Factor, Bill chastised Trump after he tweeted a sham table of statistics portraying blacks as murderers.
Watch it below, from the February 29 The O’Reilly Factor.
As usual …you are spot on!
O ’Liely is a believer in and practitioner of white supremacist ideology!
This the foundation of his American racism.
He feels that his opinions, thoughts and feelings about any subject he cares to express MUST be accepted by “others” aka AFRICAN-American, HISPANIC-Americans, NATIVE-Americans, ASIAN-Americans,etc as gospel …the final word on the matter.
His willful ignorance blinds him to the FACT …These truths we behold to be self-evident …ALL Men/Women are created equal …
This willful ignorance tells him to ignore and/or dismiss the opinions, thoughts and feelings of ALL that doesn’t “look” like himself.
Cough ..white power! cough …cough errrahhh make ‘Merica great again! cough is something he’d say!
Ohhhh …he said EAR PIECE!
Cough white power! cough …cough …make ’Merica great again!
