Bill O’Reilly thinks it’s time for Donald Trump to “bury” his animosity toward Megyn Kelly over her debate questions. But he stopped well short of calling out Trump’s obnoxious, sexist, bullying and all-around inappropriate behavior.
O’REILLY: Last night, after speaking with me on The Factor, Donald Trump once again tweeted some not nice things about Megyn Kelly. Not good. The debate issue should be buried. It’s over. Folks can make up their own minds about it. Fox News chief Roger Ailes once again stood up for Megyn because Roger’s a loyal guy.
Because he’s loyal? How about because it’s the right thing to do when a politician goes on a sexist tirade and tries to bully a news anchor? As I’ve said before, I’m not a Kelly fan and yes, I do think she and the other debate moderators targeted Trump but, believe me, they did so with Ailes’ approval and almost certainly at his behest. Regardless, that’s no excuse for Trump’s harassment.
O’Reilly continued by sounding as though Ailes had done something extraordinarily wonderful with his not-particularly-strong backing of Kelly in this dispute - and let's not forget that Ailes' first reaction when the debate controversy began was to pretend he had nothing to do with the questions.
O’REILLY: And as the general here, he protects his troops. Roger Ailes has defended me countless times against unfair assaults by vicious media people. The Kelly/Trump story is relevant to me because I’m friends with both of them. They both bring things to America that are worthy and positive. Ms. Megyn has taken the high road by not responding. Donald Trump should cease and Roger Ailes is a stand up guy.
I guess that depends on what your definition of "stand up" is.
Watch it below, from the August 25 The O’Reilly Factor.
The Donald sicked his security goons on Jorge Ramos at a presser and did his usual ego masturbation to justify the move to have him forced out. Then, typical of the Trump’s fickle temper tantrums, he calmed down and let him back into presser to fuss with him some more.
Bullying Hispanics upset over his immigration bigotry will make him hero with the Archie Bunker crowd who imagine they’re the so-called “silent majority” (stuck around 25% of the Republican base). “Fox And Friends” haven’t started their propaganda spew quite yet but witness Steve Doocy pimping the show on “Fox And Friends First” with the Ramos v Trump story. “Let you be the judge…” opines my favorite former weather guy turned GOP TV political journalist. You bet. ;^)
It will be remembered that a member of the Republican Party took down Fox “News” Channel. Not the left, but someone from the right.
