O’Reilly on Kennedy’s DNC tribute: ‘Like a vampire rising from the dead’

Published

on

Fox News host Bill O’Reilly on Tuesday blasted the Democratic Party for paying tribute to former Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-MA) in a video at their convention in Charlotte because he said the “whole purpose is to club Romney.”

In their seven-minute tribute video at the Democratic National Convention, the party began with footage of former President Bill Clinton but quickly moved to clips of the late senator destroying Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney in a 1994 Senate race debate.

O’Reilly asserted to liberal Fox News personality Alan Colmes that “it was in bad taste to use a dead guy to club Romney.”

“No, the purpose wasn’t to club Romney,” Colmes explained. “The purpose was to pay tribute to Kennedy.”

“No, no, no, no!” O’Reilly exclaimed. “It was to club Romney, that’s why they used that whole thing. They could have used that to have Kennedy’s accomplishments and achievements and all that. They cut out about two and a half minutes for a dead guy to club Romney.”

“This is like a vampire movie — rising from the dead to attack Mitt Romney!” the Fox News host added.

Watch this video from Fox News’ The O’Reilly Factor via The Huffington Post, broadcast Sept. 4, 2012.

A harsh lesson for Trump: He can’t beat the virus — and even his followers know it

Published

The reviews are in and President Trump's ballyhooed return to the stage this past weekend in Tulsa was a dud. After three months on hiatus, with nothing but the increasingly disastrous coronavirus press briefings to keep him in shape, the president turned in a very shaky performance. Even his greatest hits, like "Lock her up" and "Build that wall," couldn't bring the magic.The campaign and the White House had relentlessly hyped this return, telling the media that they had a million RSVPs for the event and even planned an outdoor overflow venue where the president was slated to make a surprise visit before he entered the main stage. But the huge crowd failed to materialize and the outdoor event was hastily scrapped as it became apparent they wouldn't even come close to filling the indoor arena. Local fire marshals estimated the crowd at a little over 6,000, less than one-third the arena's capacity and 40,000 short of the crowd they anticipated outside.
