Fox News anchor Bill O’Reilly showed his true self when he interviewed GOP frontrunner Donald Trump, Politico reported.
When talking about how the reality star turned politician was going to create more jobs for African-Americans, O’Reilly asked, “How are you going to get jobs for them. Many of them are ill-educated and have tattoos on their foreheads, and I hate to be generalized about it but it’s true. If you look at all the educational statistics, how are you going to give jobs to people who aren’t qualified for jobs?”
Yeah, he tried it. And he kept going. After Trump said his plan was to bring “jobs back” for projects like “Apple computer,” O’Reilly shot back with, “But you have to have skills to make Apple computers.”
“Well it is true. It’s about education, but it’s also about spirit,” Trump said. “A lot of people don’t have spirit. Not only African-Americans, but we don’t have spirit in our country.”
While Trump didn’t see anything wrong with what transpired…
Folks with common sense felt differently.
To make matters worse, O’Reilly has claimed that he can’t be racist, because…wait for it…he has a Black assistant, Media Matters noted.
“Yeah, see, I don’t see that in my world. And my world is a fairly expansive one. I don’t know any racists. I don’t know anybody, on either black or white people, who don’t like, like our staff here is integrated, and my assistant is black, she’s been with me for 25 years. I just never see this,” he said.
Boy bye. And girl bye for spending more than two decades of your life putting up with that noise.
