The women of “The View” were appalled at the new commentary from Bill O’Reilly on his alleged $32 million settlement with an alleged sexual harassment accuser.
On his radio show, O’Reilly said that he was “mad at God” for what happened to him. He noted that if he were to die today he would ask God “why did you work me over?”
“It sounds like God is mad at YOU!” Joy Behar quipped.
Co-host Whoopi Goldberg began the segment laughing off the absurdity.
“That’s what you’re going to say to God, Bill? Why did you work ME over?” Goldberg asked, astonished.
Meghan McCain cut in to say that the $32 million figure is an astoundingly high figure and remarkably close to what O.J. Simpson was ordered to pay the family of Ronald Goldman in a civil suit.
When speaking about the legal part of the settlement, former prosecutor Sunny Hostin noted that it required that all of the photos, recordings, videos or other possible evidence be deleted. The same time this settlement was happening, the Justice Department was investigating Fox News for a number of sexual harassment claims. She said that requiring the documents be deleted sounded like obstruction of justice to her.
Co-host Sara Haines said that for her, the thing that stuck out was O’Reilly bringing up his children.
“It was an interesting phone call,” she said of the notorious “loofah call” left on a voicemail. “Clearly his kids weren’t on his mind when he was doing that or saying those things, so to use them now seems a bit hypocritical.”
Hostin also wanted to note that 80 percent of women say that they have been sexually harassed while on the job.
“You can’t walk out of this,” Goldberg closed. “You can blame it on as many people as you want but at its core, you participated in some way. They are naming you, so don’t blame God. Take a look in the mirror and say ‘You know what, what I did was dumb and I shouldn’t do it anymore.'”

Elementary school cheer squad parents raffling off an AM-15 automatic weapon as a fundraiser
Just weeks after a mass shooting in Dayton, Ohio killed nine people, only 200 miles away in Richmond, the cheer squad is selling raffle tickets to sell a semi-automatic gun.
Fox19 reported Wednesday that the Junior Lions Cheer Team have infuriated Heather Chilton, who's 7-year-old daughter is on the squad for the first time.
"This is absurd, you're having elementary kids sell your AR-15. Why?" Chilton said. "I highly doubt that something would happen with the gun, but say it did. Say one of the kids in the high school got a hold of it — got the AR-15 or AM-15 and shot up a school with it, and I'm the one that sold the raffle ticket to his dad?"
I think Trump’s people sit around ‘thinking up new ways to be cruel’: Senator
On Wednesday's edition of MSNBC's "All In," Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) tore into the Trump administration for its treatment of migrant children, as yet more reports come in of children being denied basic services in squalid conditions, and as Trump considers ways to get around the federal consent decree placing limits on how long they can be detained.
"We already know from so many child specialists that detaining children in these kinds of facilities does irreparable damage to them," said Hirono. "There are alternatives to family detention this administration could care less about ... the only way to get around the consent agreement is by getting around it by proposing or having this rule, which will be immediately challenged. They want to detain families indefinitely, children indefinitely, held in situations that do them absolutely no good when there are alternatives."
Maddow: You have to watch what the lying White House does — and not what they say
MSNBC host Rachel Maddow opened her show with a quick assessment of her thoughts on the ridiculous that the president of the United States regurgitated into the mouths of his supporters Wednesday.
She began by noting that they don't do press briefings at the White House anymore; instead, they've turned to talking to the president directly as he enters or exits the building to go off on his campaign trips or vacations.
"Today the president held a long one of these," she said. "One of the ones where he tried to push everyone's buttons, the president is denouncing the prime minister of our allied Denmark. He's calling her nasty. That will get some headlines. The president attacked American Jews for a second straight day today, saying they have dual loyalty because they're Jews. Americans of other religions don't have that dual loyalty or his suspicions of dual loyalty, Jewish-Americans do, because of their religion."
