Every loyal Fox News viewer was shocked by the recent, abrupt ouster of legendary news host Bill O’Reilly from Fox News. Since his permanent departure from his longtime role at The O’Reilly Report, O’Reilly has been weighing his options and working on his own independent projects, like his podcast on his website.
Recently, however, Bill O’Reilly felt the strong need to speak up in defense of President Donald Trump when he heard liberal Dan Rather make some comments attacking him that clearly crossed the line.
Disgraced former CBS reporter Rather attacked Trump recently for talking about Andrew Jackson’s beliefs, saying, “The sheer craziness of this obsession by Donald Trump with Andrew Jackson and the Civil War is a carnival act unlike anything I have ever seen at the White House. These are the rantings of someone who really should be focused on the job of governing. Should we not conclude that he approaches policy decisions with the same half-baked conspiracies with which he apparently approaches history? To be President of the United States is to part of the great American story. To not understand that story is to not understand the presidency.”
Bill O’Reilly shut Rather up, saying on his podcast, “You may have seen a bunch of people on cable news, and that’s one of the reasons I don’t really miss it, saying that President Trump is a moron for saying that Andrew Jackson might have prevented the Civil War because of Jackson’s skills in running the country. So Dan Rather, who knows very little about history, and others go out and they hammer Trump like he’s a moron.”
