WATCH: Bill O’Reilly freaks out when guest asks: ‘How many black friends do you have?’

Published

on

Fox News host Bill O’Reilly lost his patience with guest Kirsten Powers on Tuesday while accusing both her and liberals of unfairly painting the US as a racist country.

“I have to wonder why you can’t see what’s happening, because most Americans are not racist,” the Factor host told her. “They’re not.”

“So how many black friends do you have?” Powers asked. “How many black friends do you have?”

O’Reilly’s hand could be heard slapping the desk before he said, “If you think most Americans are racist, I’m ashamed of you. I’m ashamed of you.”

“I’m asking you a serious question,” Powers said. “I didn’t say most Americans were racist.”

“You just said it,” he shot back.

But what Powers actually told him was, “There are actually a lot of people in this country who are racist.” Both O’Reilly and fellow panelist Monica Crowley argued that racism had been limited to the “lunatic fringe” of the country.

O’Reilly, who has denied the existence of white privilege in the past, argued that people were being “sold” the idea that the US is dealing with white supremacy.

“If you don’t get it, then you must be living in a hut somewhere with no electricity,” he told Powers.

“I’m living in the real world where you can actually defend America and people don’t attack you,” Powers replied. “I don’t even know what you’re talking about. You’re saying that you can’t defend America without people attacking you?”

“I’m saying that the world is being told by anti-American haters that we are a rank racist society, and that is a lie,” he said.

Trump jumped to Speaker Pelosi’s defense in marathon Fox News interview

Published

on

In a strange twist, President Donald Trump appeared to defend House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) during an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity Wednesday.

Hannity began by saying to Trump that he believes Pelosi has lost control of her own party, as officials like Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN) continue to call for impeachment.

"I say Nancy Pelosi is the speaker in name only," Hannity told Trump, calling Ocasio-Cortez the real start.

But what Trump said was the unusual point.

"I think Nancy Pelosi probably has control of it, I hear different things, but I think she does," Trump said, appearing to defend the Speaker. "She knows what she's doing. We will see how it all comes out."

Trump spokesperson goes down in flames up against progressive reporter: ‘All you do is lie!’

President Donald Trump's spokesperson Kayleigh McEnany went down in flames up against Cenk Uygur of The Young Turks during a CNN panel Wednesday.

McEnany went on to try and spin the president as some sort of great leader for Black Americans. She said that the campaign is very "proud" of the president's record on issues involving people of color.

"He also just said he wouldn't change his position on the Central Park Five," cut in Cuomo.

McEnany tried to cut in, but Cuomo cut in. "Now, he said we'll leave it at that. Come on."

"Chris, you come — come on, you," McEnany shot back. "We've been talking about the Central Park Five and racism and all of these things going back to the 2016 election, problem -- American people didn't believe it."

"Josh Rogin at the Washington Post reports tonight that Maria Butina also turned up at the wedding of Mike Pence's national security adviser," said Maddow. "Mike Pence's national security adviser, Andrea Thompson, got married that summer of 2017, first summer of the Trump Administration. She's got that awesome new job.
