On last night’s episode of The O’Reilly Factor, the Fox host told Martin Luther King III — the eldest son of the slain Civil Rights leader — that instead of wearing “I Can’t Breathe” shirts, those protesting police brutality should instead wear ones that say, “Don’t Get Pregnant at 14.”

“I don’t mind President Obama saying to LeBron James, ‘I’m with you'” O’Reilly said regarding James’ wearing an “I Can’t Breathe” shirt during basketball game warm-ups. “But he also has to provide some leadership” when it comes to the character of the black community.

“You know what,” O’Reilly continued, saying what he believes the president should say, “we fight the injustice, and we realize it’s there. But we love our country, and applaud the progress we’ve made, and here’s a pathway to success: Don’t abandon your children. Don’t get pregnant at 14. Don’t allow your neighborhoods to deteriorate into free-fire zones.”

That is what the African-American community should have on their t-shirts,” he said. “Am I wrong?”

“I think that’s a part of it,” King replied. “As my dad said, ‘injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.’ So, unfortunately, right now the nation is focused on one segment instead of the whole. So I think we should focus on the whole — so when we are addressing those issues [in the black community], we’re addressing other instances of police misconduct.”

Trump’s Supreme Court gambit killed his last chance of defeating Joe Biden: Conservative columnist

Published

On Thursday, writing for The Washington Post, anti-Trump conservative columnist Jennifer Rubin outlined how the president blew his final, best chance to turn around the public perception of the presidential race, and define it on his terms rather than Joe Biden's.

"With a president whose performance is as rotten as Trump’s (Gallup also shows him with a 43 percent job approval rating), his only hope was to make his opponent even more unappealing than himself," wrote Rubin. "Trump, however, never settled on an effective attack on Biden and, in any case, cannot stand ceding attention to anyone else. Trump’s performance, his lies, his antics, his insults, his crackpot conspiracy theories, his attacks on the media and his financial scandals have remained front and center. In other words, Trump’s raging narcissism has prevented him from doing what was necessary to give him a reasonable chance to win reelection."

Fox News host predicts impeachment for President Biden — right after inauguration

Published

on

Fox News' host Greg Gutfeld ranted on Thursday that the day after Vice President Joe Biden is inaugurated that Republicans should impeach him.

Yelling into the camera, Gutfeld ranted that Trump got rid of ISIS and stopped North Korea from setting off nuclear weapons, both of which aren't true.

"So, now we're all talking about are "words, words, words' as opposed to Joe Biden's deeds," he continued. "There's a foreign policy issue we should discuss. He has compromised himself. And to Jesse's point, once -- If he actually wins, impeachment proceedings start the day after inauguration."

Nicolle Wallace blasts Trump’s fake ‘manliness’ for refusing to protect his key supporters

MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace blasted President Donald Trump for not caring about his staff much less "his own godd*mn supporters."

Speaking with conservative Charlie Sykes and Democratic strategist Basil Smikle, Wallace showed a new Lincoln Project ad with Sam Elliott about fathers and sons and what it means to be a "man of family and faith."

"Above all they taught us to own up to it when we did something wrong," the ad says before showing a video of Trump saying he doesn't accept responsibility for the failures of the coronavirus.
