O’Reilly defends Romney: ‘Stone-cold fact’ that Obama won because of ‘gifts’

Published

on

Fox News host Bill O’Reilly on Monday lash out at liberals for refusing to accept the “stone-cold fact” that former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney was right when he said that President Barack Obama won because he gave voters “gifts.”

In a conference call with donors last week, Romney had explained that Obama bribed Hispanics, African-Americans, women and youth voters with “gifts” like “free health care” and “amnesty for children of illegals.”

Those remarks echoed O’Reilly’s election-night assertion that the president was likely to win re-election because blacks, Hispanics and women “feel they are entitled to things.”

“Now, that’s the truth,” O’Reilly insisted on Monday, adding that Romney “pretty much said what I said.”

“It is a stone-cold fact that lower-income Americans largely re-elected President Obama,” he continued. “When I told you the truth on election night, I was immediately branded a racist and worse. This is what Americans should understand. Liberals want to see themselves as noble, they don’t want to consider the fact that entitlements buy votes.”

O’Reilly went on to blast the “pinheads” at The Washington Post for suggesting that his election-night remarks were bigoted.

“You disgrace the journalism industry,” he ranted. “You seek to demonize anyone who disagrees with your far-left view.”

"You said could it happen here? It is happening here," Newman told Deutsch.

"As a woman of color watching him attack those four women, it made it very clear that Donald Trump is a clear and present danger to our democracy," she said.

"And everyone has been kind of tiptoeing what this actually is. Donald Trump wants to start a race war in this country and it started at that rally — it started with the tweets," she said.

As President Donald Trump continued his racist targeting of four women of color in Congress, he attempted to excuse his racism by claiming it was justified as the lawmakers had criticized America.

“I can tell you this, you can’t talk that way about our country. Not when I am the president,” Trump threatened.

Soccer superstar Megan Rapinoe was asked about her take on patriotism during an interview with CNN's Van Jones that aired Saturday evening.

"I think I’m super patriotic. I do consider myself extremely patriotic," Rapinoe said.

"I think, like, we love in America to talk about, you know, how good we are, and how like we want to save the world, and always intervening in places because they’re not doing it right. Meanwhile, at home, we’re not even doing that oftentimes for our own people," she explained.
