Krauthammer to O’Reilly: It’s Not Just Democrats, Trump’s Been Eroding Our Trust of Institutions Too

Bill O’Reilly asked Charles Krauthammer tonight about what toll extreme partisanship is taking on the country. Krauthammer said criticizing the Democrats for that is fine but the other side deserves blame too. O’Reilly said the Democrats rooting for Trump to fail and seeking to undermine him at every turn is a serious problem for the country. Krauthammer agreed, but added, “It’s wrong to begin history with the resistance to the Trump presidency.” He pointed to birtherism and how Trump was leading that for quite a while. O’Reilly didn’t think it was fair to compare the two because birtherism was on the fringe and it dod receive the kind of mainstream backing that a lot of the attacks on Trump are getting. Krauthammer insisted that Trump talking so much about rigged elections and polls and how he said George W. Bush deceived the country to Continue reading "Krauthammer to O’Reilly: It’s Not Just Democrats, Trump’s Been Eroding Our Trust of Institutions Too"

Lou Dobbs: George Will Seems to Be on ‘Personal Jihad’ Against Trump

Bill O’Reilly tonight devoted a segment to pushing back against what George Will said on MSNBC last night about conservatives potentially turning on President Trump. O’Reilly, who has feuded with Will in the past, brought on Lou Dobbs to pile on him for what Dobbs referred to as clear personal “animus” here. He said this seems like a “blood feud” that Trump isn’t participating in (anymore, at least), and it said it seems like Will is on a “personal jihad” against the president. RELATED: George Will: Trump ‘Objects to Truth That’s Inconvenient’ to Him He argued that Trump has done plenty to prove his conservative detractors wrong, and yet there’s still so much “animosity, venom, and bile” within the Republican party.

Alveda King: People Believe Trump’s a Racist Because of ‘Fake News’

Dr. Alveda King, niece of Martin Luther King, Jr., was on Fox News tonight to discuss President Trump after appearing with him at the National Museum of African American History and Culture today. She spoke to Bill O’Reilly about how she liked Trump early on in the 2016 race due to his positions on a range of issues. O’Reilly brought up the charge being thrown around that Trump’s a racist, admitted he doesn’t understand what that’s based off of, and asked King why that’s such a big argument on the left. King simply said that it was “fake news” being pushed online and elsewhere, saying that people like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson praised Trump openly years ago before he ran for president.

Bill O’Reilly: Trump Can Win the Culture War as Long as He Sticks to the Facts

Bill O’Reilly said tonight President Trump has an opportunity to win the culture war, but to do so he has to stick to the facts. He brought up the Sweden controversy from this past weekend and said that because Trump’s words “were not precise,” he got roundly hammered. O’Reilly argued that if Trump sticks to the facts when it comes to matters of immigration, he wins, because most Americans are on his side and aren’t happy with how Democrats are handling the issue. He also argued that because Barack Obama saw America as a flawed nation, a “negative view of the USA sunk in,” but now the country has a president with a more positive view. O’Reilly concluded that Trump can win the culture war, “but in order to do that, discipline and facts must dominate the discourse. Facts, not opinion, will trump propaganda.” Continue reading "Bill O’Reilly: Trump Can Win the Culture War as Long as He Sticks to the Facts"

Bill O’Reilly: Is the Press Really ‘Free’ If It’s So Overtly Liberal?

Bill O’Reilly tonight questioned whether the American press is truly “free,” in response to the outcry over President Trump‘s “enemy” tweet. There’s been a lot of talk about the value of a free and fair press, but O’Reilly argued that “when the press aligns itself with a political movement… then it is no longer objective or free because it’s sympathizing with a political point of view.” He cited things that various newscasters have said about Trump, including CNN’s Jake Tapper recently telling Trump to “stop whining” after his marathon presser, concluding that “if the American press wants to regain respect, it needs to ditch its outwardly liberal bent.” O’Reilly said that based on what he’s observed in the news business, it’s “at least 10 to 1 liberal over conservative.” Watch above, via Fox News.

Fox’s Chris Wallace: Trump Was Saying ‘I’m in Charge’ at Today’s Press Conference

Tonight on Fox News’ The O’Reilly Factor, Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace showed up to provide his reaction to President Donald Trump’s explosive news conference. Wallace explained to Bill O’Reilly that Trump’s continued attacks on the media is his attempt to “seize the narrative” when it comes to how the press is unfairly covering his administration, specifically the chaos of the White House. “This was a president saying, ‘I’m in charge — I know what I’m doing. I’m not going to bend to Washington. Washington’s going to have to get used to me,'” the Fox News anchor noted. Overall though, Wallace felt that the presser won’t be that much of a big deal when it’s all said and done. He explained that it still all comes down to how the economy performs or if he can provide a suitable replacement for Obamacare.

‘You’re Doing Something Un-American’: O’Reilly and Geraldo Rivera Battle Over Russia and Flynn

Bill O’Reilly got into a heated debate with Geraldo Rivera tonight after the former scolded the latter for jumping to conclusions about the Trump administration and Russia. O’Reilly first wondered why, if President Trump thinks the press treated Flynn unfairly, he also asked for his resignation. Eric Bolling argued that he can think the press was unfair but also accept that he had to go for misleading the vice president. Rivera brought up the reports last night about Trump aides being in communication with Russian intel, but O’Reilly jumped in to say, “You’re doing something un-American. You’re convicting.” The two men fought as O’Reilly scolded Rivera for convicting based on anonymous sources. He cried that there’s serious questions here because we don’t know the names of people coming forward with these allegations. Rivera shot back that having names wasn’t necessary for people to reach Continue reading "‘You’re Doing Something Un-American’: O’Reilly and Geraldo Rivera Battle Over Russia and Flynn"
