O’Reilly Defends Trump By Lashing Out On Dan Rather Calling Him A “Moron”
Every single dedicated Fox News viewer was stunned by the recent, unexpected firing of renowned news host Bill O’Reilly from Fox News.
Ever since his definite departure from his longtime job at The O’Reilly Report, O’Reilly has been analyzing his options and working on his personal, individual projects, such as his website podcast.
Lately, however, Bill O’Reilly felt the sudden urge to speak up and defend President Donald Trump when he heard liberal Dan Rather make some remarks attacking him that evidently went too far.
Discredited former CBS reporter Rather attacked Trump not long ago for discussing Andrew Jackson’s beliefs, stating, “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 silenced Rather by stating 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.”
O’Reilly said in addition, “Trump was right. Andrew Jackson would not have tolerated any secession movement at all and would have moved federal troops much faster into the problem situations. James Buchanan, Old Buck, did nothing. He was afraid. And that emboldened the South. End of historical story. These morons that you see on cable news, just turn them off. Just turn them off because you are never going to get an honest story. They know nothing.”
