A prominent MSNBC journalist publicly slammed former Fox News personality Bill O’Reilly in the wake of Rep. Blake Farenthold (R-TX) resigning from Congress, effective at 5 p.m. eastern.
Rep. Farenthold resigned after being caught paying $84,000 in taxpayer money to pay off a sexual harassment accuser.
MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle linked Rep. Farenthold’s scandal to fired Fox News personality Bill O’Reilly.
O’Reilly settled a sexual harassment claim for $32 million.
Ruhle connected the scale of the two sex scandals.
Again…. if whatever this person did warranted an $84,000 settlement
WHAT ON EARTH RESULTS IN A $32,000,000 settlement!!!!!!! https://t.co/N4FllL3WwhADVERTISEMENT

O’Reilly has blamed God for not protecting him from legal accountability.
“You know, am I mad at God? Yeah, I’m mad at him,” O’Reilly said in October. “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.”
