In case you missed it, the sleaziness that is Jason Mattera recently ambushed Hillary Clinton, asked her to inscribe her book to Ambassador Christopher Stevens (who was killed in Benghazi) and asked, “What difference does it make?” during the encounter. Thank goodness Bill O’Reilly not only called out Mattera for the tasteless stunt, he praised Clinton’s handling of it. Even Martha MacCallum, normally a mouthpiece for Republicans, agreed.
O’Reilly didn’t mince words about Mattera: “Using a horrendous act of terror to make a political point: unacceptable,” he said.
MacCallum added, “I have to agree. I had the same reaction when I saw it. It’s over the line. You’re talking about someone who was a personal friend of Hillary Clinton’s. You’re talking about a death." She also called it “thoughtless” and “over the line.”
“I thought Hillary Clinton handled it well,” O’Reilly said. “Much better than I would have.” MacCallum concurred.
“You can make your points about Hillary Clinton’s stature as Secretary of State and her responsibility in Benghazi without doing that cheap stuff,” O’Reilly continued. MacCallum murmured her agreement there, too.
This is not the first time O’Reilly has spoken out against Mattera’s sleaziness. In 2010, O’Reilly was so disgusted with Mattera, he actually sided with archenemy Al Franken when Mattera tried to ambush him.
