Bill O’Reilly admits he’s ‘mad at God’ for not protecting him from sexual misconduct allegations

Published

on

Disgraced former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly added another figure to the cadre of people he holds responsible for his alleged sexual misconduct, telling listeners of the web series “No Spin News” that he also blames God for how the events transpired.

“You know, am I mad at God? Yeah, I’m mad at him,” O’Reilly said, according to CNN. “I wish I had more protection. I wish this stuff didn’t happen. I can’t explain it to you. Yeah, I’m mad at him.”

O’Reilly was discussing a recent New York Times report that revealed the former Fox News host paid out $32 million to settle a sexual harassment claim by longtime Fox News legal analyst Lis Wiehl. O’Reilly repeated his frequent claim that the Times report is the product of a media machine bent on his destruction.

“If they could literally kill me, they would,” O’Reilly said, later arguing the Times published this yet another account of his alleged misconduct because “we didn’t kill him, so we’ve got to kill him again.”

“If I die tomorrow and I get an opportunity, I’ll say, ‘Why’d you guys work me over like that? Didn’t [you] know my children were going to be punished? And they’re innocent,'” he continued. “But then I think about people who have it much, much rougher than me. And you know, I’m a big mouth. I’m a target. They’re not targets.”

“So they came back with another bunch of garbage,” he said of the Times. “I talked to them this time just to see the devil that I was dealing with. And I truly believe that these people at the New York Times are out to hurt people with whom they disagree. They don’t want me in the marketplace. That’s what this is all about.”

Appearing on CNN on Friday morning to discuss an alarming whistleblower report on Donald Trump's actions that the president's administration is withholding from Congress, Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) encouraged the acting Director of National Intelligence to hand the report over and ignore the administration.

Speaking with CNN host Jim Sciutto, Swalwell made a direct appeal to acting-DNI head Joseph Maguire.

"This is an opportunity for Republicans and Democrats to unite and say, we don't want this in our democracy," Swalwell explained. "You know, that's why I wrote the Protecting Our Democracy Act, to, you know, have a bipartisan commission look at this."
