Bill O’Reilly Makes Awkward Appearance On The Daily Show

by Jim Newell

One of the personalities everyone in America mocks on a daily basis, Bill O’Reilly, went on Jon Stewart’s political comedy program The Daily Show last night to promote his insanely titled new book, A Bold Fresh Piece of Humanity. O’Reilly tries to appear affable for the hippie crowd, but for O’Reilly that means bullying his host with the words, “Listen, Stewart,” and saying all liberals are fags with no “traditional values.” Stewart insults O’Reilly constantly, too! Culture Wars! Part 1 is above, Part 2 after the jump.

A Bold Fresh Piece of Hannity? I’ll buy that. What? Oh, never mind then.

Inadequate Blackmail November 14, 2008 at 10:06 am

Bill gets 2 segments because he just that bold and fresh. And a piece.

HuskyMescan November 14, 2008 at 10:07 am

I cringed watching the collision of good and evil forces. Oreilly was ghastly. Even Stewart was acting weird before the interview.

AngryBlakGuy November 14, 2008 at 10:11 am

…shouldn’t they be fighting with light sabers or something?

Dreamer November 14, 2008 at 10:17 am

I don’t know why this guy has any audience at all. He is clearly deranged. The interview with Stewart was bizarre and uncomfortable to watch.

monty November 14, 2008 at 10:20 am

a bold fresh steaming pile of crap came on the daily show last night to shill his new book, next week a bold fresh steaming pile of dick morris, a bold quivering mess of sean hannity, and a bold throbbing dick cheney just to make our axis of evil week complete. Although, be warned dick cheney doesnt throb like he used to.

Yaybuls November 14, 2008 at 10:21 am

Strangely enough, “A Bold Fresh Piece of Ass” was O’Reilly’s poker night description for Andrea Mackris.

Greenwich village isn’t the real America or diverse because it goes overwhelmingly Democratic.

Everyone knows that the only places that are really America and diverse are places that go overwhelmingly republican.

@Dreamer:

Oh, come on–you don’t have to agree with the man to find him hilarious. Sometimes I watch his show just for laffs.

ihasasad November 14, 2008 at 10:23 am

Call me ‘CRAZAY’ but I grinned the whole time watchin that. Nobody’s going to change a mind that’s firmly rooted so I found the banter mildly playful…like a PUPPY FIGHT!!!!! With PANDAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

tonehedge November 14, 2008 at 10:23 am

Billy don’t know panda from bear.
Billy don’t know center-right from center-left.

Billy just knows what he knows, which, is nothing at all.

wildeoats November 14, 2008 at 10:24 am

Why didn’t they have Samantha Bee show up with loofah and a wink? Stewart is such a pussy.

Palin-Plumber2012 November 14, 2008 at 10:26 am

Love that back-up to the claim that the U.S. is center-right because we were noble to remove Saddam Hussein or something. If we were center-left most people would not just want to leave Iraq, but ass-rape the troops for fighting war?

Ted Perino November 14, 2008 at 10:30 am

Had to flip over to R Maddow.

Wouldn’t stand around looking at a pile of dog poop either, no matter who is saying clever things about it.

Gopherit November 14, 2008 at 10:33 am

I have no snark. John Stewart is my hero.

ManchuCandidate November 14, 2008 at 10:33 am

There is so much wrong with that title Billbo.

1) No mentions of Falafal or Loofas
2) Who says you’re human?
3) How can you give something you don’t have?

Naked Bunny with a Whip November 14, 2008 at 10:34 am

Good to see that Stewart’s testicles finally descended sometime in the past few years.

Gopherit November 14, 2008 at 10:34 am

and in a just universe, a douchebag like O’Reilly should get his wish and be forced to live as an anarchist. He’s live for a week, and he wouldn’t enjoy it.

nurple November 14, 2008 at 10:34 am

ahem…Bill…the survivalists with the land and the guns and hating the government and the beards, they also hate anyone who’s not Protestant. Just lettin’ you know. The KKK was not only an anti-black organization, it was an anti-Catholic one too. You’re not likely to be welcome in the compound.

ServiceJervixJuice November 14, 2008 at 10:35 am

I enjoy Bill on the Daily Show, He treads lightly and tries to apply a hip patina to his schtick that always falls short.

Neilist November 14, 2008 at 10:35 am

“I’m an anarchist.”

BILL O’REILLY AND BILL AYERS FOR JOINT SECRETARY OF STATE!

That’s Change We Can Believe In.

(Or “Change In Which We Can Believe,” if you didn’t learn your English through an ESL program.)

Chuck Fildren November 14, 2008 at 10:36 am

I think him looking at that bear and calling it a panda by accident and then having it pointed out to him that it is not a panda, followed by him continuing to insist that it’s a panda is kinda the perfect metaphor. I think everything i’ve ever said about bill o’reilly was proven in that moment. Also I didn’t think it was so awkward. I think Jon likes having him there because he recognizes him as a different beast than hannity and it’s some one he can disagree with without having to basically call them the biggest shithead in the world like he had to do with Jonah Goldberg.

Chuck Fildren November 14, 2008 at 10:38 am

[re=176767]ServiceJervixJuice[/re]: I concur

Monsieur Grumpe November 14, 2008 at 10:39 am

Jews getting stoned to death? Greenwich village opinion? Bill/Palin or Palin/Bill in 2012! Craziest one gets top billing.

Advocatus_Diaboli November 14, 2008 at 10:42 am

[re=176761]Naked Bunny with a Whip[/re]: I disagree. Stewart’s testicles descended quite some time ago.

BO’R…Klingon for “pompous asshole”.

Naked Bunny with a Whip November 14, 2008 at 10:46 am

Sadly, I can’t watch videos now that I’m at the office “working”. *laughs and laughs* I’ll try to get to it tonight. I know he had his moments, but I remember him being a giant suck-up for the most part years ago.

bonsai pajamas November 14, 2008 at 10:46 am

Longing for the day O’Reilly will be selling steak knives on the home shopping network.

Naked Bunny with a Whip November 14, 2008 at 10:46 am

He’s always been adorable, though.

Naked Bunny with a Whip November 14, 2008 at 10:47 am

Stewart, not O’Reilly. Eww.

nurple November 14, 2008 at 10:51 am

O’Reilly’s down to ten million a year now, too. I bet Olbermeinkampf makes more.

Chuck Fildren November 14, 2008 at 10:58 am

I love this song and it feels fitting:

I’m so sure Oh’Really called Stewart a “master of propaganda”. That in itself was masterful propaganda, no?

AliBabaInBA November 14, 2008 at 11:10 am

Won’t watch this nor anything of him.
I do, however, invite you to get back to me when his head finally explodes or if he’s arrested for some kind of crime against nature (i.e., something interesting).
Kind regards.

lick on my truck nutz November 14, 2008 at 11:14 am

Well Bill O can come on down to Oklahoma anytime he wants. I voted for Obama and I’ll be happy to cook him some ribs and kick his candy ass back to New York. Stewart can come and stay and minus the ass kicking.

AliBabaInBA November 14, 2008 at 11:14 am

I meant O’Reilly, of course. Stewart’s a good citizen. Funny, anyway.

Miller November 14, 2008 at 11:22 am

Look, in real America we sexually harass our staffers to the point that they become millionaires. Does any liberal have an economic policy that good?

“A Bold Fresh Piece of Humanity”

You’re joking, right? I can’t watch videos at work.

As in, “Servant! Throw another bold, fresh piece of humanity to the hungry tigers?”

You are joking, right?

Origami November 14, 2008 at 11:53 am

After the interview Bill O’Reilly skipped the whole way back to his fancy SoHo apartment on Elizabeth street and called up his BFF whom he plans to get gay-married to in CT, NY socialite Chappy Morris, to giggle about his dig on “Greenwich Village” (“hehe that will show those village co-op boards for rejecting me!”).

Carrie_Okie November 14, 2008 at 11:59 am

You know I thought I’d feel different after the election. But I still cannot watch arsewrenches like ORLY. I tried to watch it and just the fact that he exists sickened me too much. Even the hope that “Stewart” would just expose him for the moron he is was not reinforcing enough. And even here, my snark is broken.

sati demise November 14, 2008 at 12:18 pm

[re=176930]Carrie_Okie[/re]: yea, the reason Bill-o and all his followers are so ‘scared’ of Obama is they swallowed all the lies about our president elect. Even if you totally and completely debunked the lie about Obama, they believed it anyway.

sort of like believing a brown bear is a Panda. If you showed Bill-o a picture of a Panda next to that stuffed bear, he would still say it was a Panda. Thats how the rabid right wing constructs their view of Hopey.

KilgoreTrout_XL November 14, 2008 at 12:23 pm

Bill lost a lot of girlfriends over the years because he made them call it a “bold fresh piece of humanity.” Not only was it creepy, they’d say, it wasn’t exactly an apt moniker either.

Gorillionaire November 14, 2008 at 12:49 pm

I watched maybe the first minute on teevee and found something else to do. Bill-O pulls the same goddamn schtick every time he wanders away from his litter box at Fox – vaguely polite for a few seconds, defiantly “neutral”, quick to remind everyone that he is 6’4″ and that he once hit his dad in the face or something. He acts like he wants everyone to see he’s some kinda lunch pail carrying long shoreman, but he is clearly a money worshipping pansy who gets his eyebrows professionally waxed while his toes get manicured and then he makes an awkward pass at the Korean girl and huffs out to get another shitty overpriced Scotch at the hotel, where he hits on the bartendress and gets huffy again.

Valkyrie November 14, 2008 at 1:12 pm

[re=176787]Naked Bunny with a Whip[/re]: Jon Stewart’s been having his moments pretty constantly for years. You don’t actually watch him, do you?

Theodorick Of York November 14, 2008 at 1:29 pm

I wanted to read it when I thought the title was “An Old Flesh Heap Of Insanity”.
Not so much now…

aflurry November 14, 2008 at 1:41 pm

all of o’reilly’s overcompensating references to his physical toughness made me feel uncomfortable and sorry for him. “I’m 6 foot 4.” “You wouldn’t go down to the red states, you’d get your ass kicked. You could go down with me, i’ll protect you.”

Really? No… I actually think Stewart could travel anywhere in the US and not get his ass kicked. Pretty much like any of us could.

I wonder what happened to poor Billy when he was a kid. Was he bullied and taunted? Is that what’s behind all this? I’m actually serious… it made me kind of sad.

Naked Bunny with a Whip November 14, 2008 at 1:52 pm

You don’t actually watch him, do you?

I pretty much stopped watching TV in 2006, so I’m out of the loop.

nurple November 14, 2008 at 2:31 pm

Bill O’Reilly’s hatred of sourdough and mandolins is legendary.

Don’t forget, he was being a thug in 3rd grade! THUG LYFE 4EVA!

lawnchair reactionary November 14, 2008 at 4:02 pm

meh, it was pretty sensible and less awkward compared to Bill O’Reilly’s previous appearances on shows like these, the guy’s really mellowed out.

L33tminion November 15, 2008 at 4:08 pm

Man, it gets _brought_ in the second half.

L33tminion November 15, 2008 at 4:10 pm

Also, it’s worth noting that Bill O’Reilly does not act the same in reality as he does on his show. It was really funny to see him that first time on the Colbert report, since I think Colbert was expecting O’Reilly the character and didn’t really know what to do with out-of-character O’Reilly.
