Let’s not mince words here: Bill O’Reilly is an asshole. Both onscreen and off, the man is a jagoff of cyclopean proportions. He’s known mostly for having hosted ‘The O’Reilly Factor‘ on Fox News for the last 1000 years and also a little bit for that time he got recorded flipping the fuck out over a teleprompter issue (“WE’LL DO IT LIVE!“).
“Today, I wake up every morning in a house that was built by slaves, and I watch my daughters — two beautiful intelligent black young women — play with the dog on the White House lawn.”“And because of Hillary Clinton, my daughters and all of our sons and daughters now take for granted that a woman can be president of the United States.”
“Slaves that worked there were well fed and had decent lodgings, provided by the Government – which stopped hiring slave labour in 1802, however the Feds did not forbid sub-contractors from hiring slave labour.“So Michelle Obama is essentially correct in citing slaves as builders of the white house, but there were others working as well.”
Excuse my salty language, but what the fuck kinda point is he trying to make here? Does the fact that they got a few hot meals a day in some way diminish the point that Michelle made? To even try to mitigate something as awful as slavery by pointing out something this asinine is absolutely abhorrent, and deeply, deeply weird.
