In a nauseating discussion Friday night, Bill O’Reilly, Greg Gutfeld and Bernard McGuirk showed just how mean-spirited and small-minded they are as they not only failed to admit that Hillary Clinton is owed an apology from the people on their network who accused her of faking a concussion but suggested that she deserved it. And then attacked the left for faking their concern.
The discussion began with O’Reilly asking if “critics” should apologize to Hillary Clinton for suggesting she had faked her concussion to avoid testifying about Benghazi.
Gutfeld sneered that nobody really cared about Clinton’s health, she was merely being used by the left to attack the right, but oh, by the way, Foxies were right in doubting her:
If you want to apologize to her, I guess that’s OK but never apologize to people who are criticizing you over being skeptical because they really don’t care. All they want is a scalp of contrition. These people don’t care about her health. What they’re trying to do is come after you. And by the way, you’d have to be an idiot not to be skeptical of anything that’s going on related to Benghazi because the Casey Anthony homicide case has been handled better than Benghazi.
O’Reilly didn’t just fail to challenge that disgusting remark, he endorsed it. “Gutfeld is actually making a good, valid point… The critics who are demanding an apology don’t really care about Mrs. Clinton’s health, they just want to try to embarrass their ideological opposition," O'Reilly said.
Gutfeld added, “I would even go even further and say that they don’t mind that she’s sick because it helps them prove their point.”
That was going “over the line,” according to O’Reilly.
Gutfeld, who always thinks that being a wise guy makes him look smart, rather than asinine, said, “I want to go over the line, damnit!”
McGuirk jumped in:
Let me point out about the critics of the skeptics. They didn’t really speak out until after she was hospitalized with the blood clot because they themselves were skeptical. They didn’t start speaking out until this past week in a loud way… And if you were not skeptical of the Clintons, you were either a sucker or a sycophant. As much as we respect her intelligence and her work ethic...
But O’Reilly agreed with McGuirk. “There has been a history there of not being really up front,” O'Reilly said. But, he added, “We all want Hillary Clinton to get better.”
“Without a doubt,” McGuirk said, as Gutfeld nodded.
“You like her, you don’t like her, we don’t wish physical ill on anyone. Mental ill? Yes,” O’Reilly quipped.
I’m sure that made Mrs. Clinton feel ever so much better.
As AAP so aptly noted, BOR brought on a couple of jackasses who are well-known for their tacky remarks and sophomoric attitudes so that he could look like the more noble one in the room. This is one of BOR’s favorite (and more laughable) tactics when he feels the need to pimp up his supposed “fair & balanced” cred.
Regarding McGuirk’s inaccurate claim that no one was speaking out until Clinton’s blood clot was announced, I have no doubt that BOR knew his claim was not true. Come in, BOR, how about giving the folks the facts of the matter? Of course, had you told the whole truth, it would have greatly lessened the impact of the segment’s bias. So agenda trumps truth, BOR?
And to BOR’s comments about the the “critics” wanting to “try to embarrass their ideological opposition” and that the Clintons have a history of “not being really up front”, my hypocrisy meter maxed out. Pot, kettle, black, BOR.
It almost makes me wish I could put a pox on him but,that would make me stoop to his low low levels ,and thats a place I never want to be.
Is it me ,or is he getting worse and worse.
Ever heard the joke about the woman-hating TV BlowHard who had his sexually harassing phone calls taped and was so impressed with the results he paid $2 million for the masters? A real knee-slapper!
