‘Why didn’t you sue these women?’ Matt Lauer corners Bill O’Reilly on sex harassment in tense interview

Published

on

NBC’s Matt Lauer got into a tense interview with Bill O’Reilly on Tuesday in which he cornered the disgraced former Fox News host over the multiple claims of sexual harassment leveled against him.

Throughout the interview, O’Reilly maintained that he was totally innocent of any wrongdoing, despite the fact that Fox News paid out $13 million to five different women to settle sexual harassment charges made against its former star host.

“I can go to sleep at night very well knowing that I never mistreated anyone on my watch in 42 years,” O’Reilly insisted at one point.

NBC’s Matt Lauer, however, asked O’Reilly an obvious question: If you’re so obviously innocent of sexual harassment, why not sue your accusers for defamation?

“You cannot win those lawsuits if you’re a public figure, you cannot win them,” O’Reilly insisted. “I could do that, but the collateral damage of these lawsuits, the press frenzy, every allegation is a conviction… they don’t look for the truth!”

Lauer also asked O’Reilly if he believed there was a “vast left-wing conspiracy” against him, to which O’Reilly snapped back, “Don’t be sarcastic.”

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT), who was once seen as an independent thinker, proved he's over it, when he lamented to other senators he wanted to go home because no one is paying any attention anyway.

Speaking to Sen. Mike Braun (R-IN), who has already admitted that Trump is guilty but he doesn't care, Romney was overheard complaining during the last break.

“I think we’ve got another 6 hours," said Braun.

As a new show begins about the life of retired Admiral Jean-Luc Picard, Trekkies worldwide have connected to celebrate the on-going stories of the various command ships in the Starfleet.

Perhaps that is the reason folks took to the internet to mock the president for his team having no other creative ideas for their own logos.

However, as one former Air Force Lieutenant pointed out, the logo is similar to the one he wore back in 2005. He noted that it wasn't so much that Trump stole the logo, rather the Air Force stole it decades ago.

Buried in a piece about the recent revelations that President Donald Trump was recorded demanding someone "take out" former Ukraine Ambassador Yovanovitch, CNN revealed prosecutors don't believe Rudy Giuliani associate Lev Parnas.

"In November, federal prosecutors questioned [Joseph] Bondy about whether his client had been operating on behalf of Ukrainians at the dinner with Trump when Parnas said the ambassador was bad-mouthing the President, according to people familiar with the matter," reported CNN. "On behalf of his client, Bondy rebutted that suggestion, but prosecutors told him they didn't believe Parnas. Bondy declined to comment on any conversations with prosecutors."
