Despite our greatest hopes following his ouster from Fox News, Bill O’Reilly has not yet dropped off the face of the earth.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter published on Tuesday, O’Reilly touched on a number of subjects, including NOT the sexual harassment claims against him (because lawyers, of course), Megyn Kelly, the National Geographic Channel taking a hard pass on an adaptation of his Killing Patton book, and Donald Trump’s comments on Charlottesville.

Athought O’Reilly admitted that Trump did not do a particularly spectacular job of responding to Charlottesville, he made some truly AMAZING excuses for him. Starting with the fact that our poor, innocent babe-in-the-woods president just didn’t know enough about history to know that Nazis are bad:

Speaking of which, what did you think about Trump’s statements blaming the violence in Charlottesville on “both sides”?

I’ve known Trump for 30 years. I wrote a column for The Hill and said that Trump’s mistake — and it was one — was that you can never under any circumstances equate Nazis with anyone else. It’s a very simple thing, OK? So if you understand history — and I think Trump does to some extent, but not perhaps to the extent that is needed in this day and age — when you understand the evil that happened in the ’30s and ’40s in Germany, in Europe and even in Japan, really, truly understand it, you can’t make comments about it in any other context other than, this is pure evil. That’s it, OK? Now, if you want to make a point the next day that the antifa movement is destructive, you can do that, but it has to be the next day. You see what I mean?

Donald Trump is a 71-year-old man. I am not sure at what point, exactly, in elementary school or quite possibly preschool, I knew enough about history to know for sure that Nazis were bad, but it definitely coincided with the exact time I found out about Nazis. It was definitely before second grade, I can tell you that much — a point at which I knew little else about history other than that Columbus was also bad and that Dinah Washington was not, in fact, George Washington’s wife. Still, I knew Nazis were bad. Thanks, mom!

How much information, really, does one even need to come to that conclusion? Are there people out there who are like, “AH, after studying the Holocaust for many years, I have finally come to the conclusion that Nazis were really bad”?

When asked if he thought if, perhaps, being that he is the president and all, Trump should perhaps consider learning about how the Nazis were bad, O’Reilly explained that he didn’t really have to, because he is emotional.

But he’s president now. Shouldn’t the bar be higher? Shouldn’t he have a better grasp of history?

He acts and he speaks emotionally, OK? Always. And that’s why he got elected. People rallied to that because they’re tired of the automaton politicians. He wasn’t thinking about Nazis and what they did in World War II and the Holocaust. He was thinking, “I saw on television bad people, Nazis, neo-Nazis, but I also saw antifa people bring weapons to the park and look for trouble.” He saw it, so he said it without stepping back and saying, “You know what? I got to put perspective in play here. I’m the president.” So he didn’t do that. And that’s why he got hammered.

OK, ok. Let’s all just take a second here and IMAGINE A WORLD in which Bill O’Reilly says it is OK for a woman to not know stuff, or be bad at her job, because she’s just really emotional.

I mean, can we consider here the years and years of “Well, a woman really shouldn’t be president, because of her emotions. WHAT IF SHE WAS ON HER PERIOD AND DID A NUCLEAR WAR? Women are definitely too emotional to be presidents!” But apparently it is acceptable for a man to be so emotional he doesn’t know that Nazis are bad?

If I may, allow me to take you back for a moment. Back to an episode of The O’Reilly Factor in which he argued that women were too emotional to be able to report fairly on Donald Trump, especially if they are feminists. Even if they were really, really good journalists.

O’Reilly explained:

“If I’m an editor and I know there is a feminist woman in my newsroom, who is brilliant because I think this woman is an excellent reporter, I don’t let her report on a guy like Trump because Trump is the antithesis of that. And so I don’t want any margin of error here, there are plenty of reporters who can do the story, do you not see that?”

So a woman can’t do journalism on Donald Trump, because she is too emotional, but Donald Trump can say dumb shit about Nazis because he’s just emotional like that. Or something? Because when women have emotions they are irrational and incompetent, but when men have emotions — even if it results in incompetency — they’re just being their authentic selves. Unlike all those automatons out there. And that is just like, really beautiful and everyone loves it.

O’Reilly was then asked about the fact that many people (me included!) think that Trump just does not want to alienate the white nationalists.

But there is an interpretation that he said those things because he does not want to alienate his white nationalist supporters.

No, no, no, no. It’s not his style. He doesn’t think that way. What he thinks about is, who’s attacking me unfairly? Who’s giving me a hard time? And I tell him all the time, “Look, you’re the president, you know, and you’re going to get it no matter what you say. You can’t win it.” But is Trump going to listen to me? No, he’s not.

Hold up. So he’s not doing that, but also he’s doing that? Because instead of going after the White Nationalists, who love Trump and think he is a swell dude, but are also White Nationalists, he is going after Antifa and other anti-Nazi protesters because they are “giving him a hard time.”

Is that a normal way to act? For an adult? Isn’t that kind of like being “Charles Manson was really nice to me, but Ralph Nader was not, so YAY murder and fuck seatbelts!” Is it actually possible for anyone to be this stupid?

It’s very clear that Trump thinks that the greatest good is thinking Donald Trump is great. It is clear that he is stupid and that “he acts and he speaks emotionally.” But I’m gonna need to point out that there is no way in hell that Bill O’Reilly would excuse these things in this manner — and still contend that this is a person who should definitely be in charge of running the country — if he were talking about anyone but a straight, white, Republican man.

    I’d argue for a basic knowledge test for presidents if I didn’t think that standard would *instantly* be used by Republicans as a voting standard.

    • willi0000000

      not just presidents . . . anybody running for any office, anybody who wants to be a cop or border patrol or FBI or … , anybody who wants to be a lawyer or judge, anybody going into the spy business CIA, NSA, …

      they should all be able to pass a decent high school level civics final exam . . . with, at least, a C grade . . . if not, they can just be voters like the rest of us.

      [ i’d ask for a B grade but we don’t want government to become too efficient . . . imagine writing a piece of legislation, amending it, voting on it, reconciling it, and passing it all in one day! . . . we’d be awash in laws even more than now ]

    I wouldn’t let someone critical of Trump do a story about Trump, because appraising a political leader critically is not the job of journalism.

    Just a reminder, Charlottesville happened after Trump visited Yad Vashem. With the possible exception of Auschwitz nothing else better tells you just how evil the Nazis truly were. By Billo’s argument, Trump isn’t only an idiot; he is an idiot who is demonstrably incapable of learning.

  • TJ Barke

    Antifa is destructive. Of nazis.

    I think the lesson here is that Man Emotion, aka being the sort of hotheaded shitsipper who will do something like this:

    is a good thing, but that girls have cooties or some shit like that.

  • So… his excuse is “Trump’s not a white supremacist, he’s just a narcissistic moron.” And that’s… better?

    • Spotts1701, Nothingburger Chef

      Better is a relative term here. In the sense that having a broken leg is “better” than having it cut off at the knee.

    • Daniel

      BillO is a narcissistic moron. So of course it’s better to be one of those than a white supremacist.

  • Lord Jim

    If you apologize for Nazis, you’re as bad as a Nazi. If you apologize for the Nazi apologist, you’re as as bad as a Nazi. There’s no level of indirection that saves your ass.

    As far as this glob of derp:

    He acts and he speaks emotionally, OK?
    Always. And that’s why he got elected. People rallied to that because
    they’re tired of the automaton politicians. He wasn’t thinking about
    Nazis and what they did in World War II and the Holocaust. He was
    thinking, “I saw on television bad people, Nazis, neo-Nazis, but I also
    saw antifa people bring weapons to the park and look for trouble.” He
    saw it, so he said it without stepping back and saying, “You know what? I
    got to put perspective in play here. I’m the president.” So he didn’t
    do that. And that’s why he got hammered.

    So, on the one hand, people elected Trump because “they’re tired of the automaton politicians”, then you turn around and admit that Trump shoots from the hip because he can’t control himself?

    “If I’m an editor and I know there is a

    Trump because Trump is the antithesis of that. And so I don’t want any
    margin of error here, there are plenty of reporters who can do the
    story, do you not see that?”
    As much as I can’t stand Bill-O, it’s not clear to me where it’s being said in this statement that a woman is too emotional to report on Donald Trump. It sounds like he’s saying that Trump is the antithesis of feminism (and brilliance, too, if I’m reading it right) and so putting someone who is both smart and a feminist on stories about him would make them not objective. Given his history, I suppose that one would think it implied, but I feel like the grand douche doesn’t think anyone who is liberal can be objective, emotional or not.

    • Meccalopolis

      Whatever he meant it makes no sense. A brilliant reporter is objective by definition

  • Daniel

    “What he thinks about is, who’s attacking me unfairly? Who’s giving me a hard time?”

    He thinks anyone who attacks him is doing so unfairly. His response to Katy Tur today was to say, again, that the criticism is invalid because she doesn’t know him. He says this a lot. He thinks that if people know him, they will forgive him anything or not even think anything he does is wrong.

    It also doesn’t strike BillO as wrong that Trump will side with White Nationalists if he thinks he’s being unfairly criticised by not white nationalists. That shallowness and self-pitying opportunism is apparently the mark of a great president. It says a lot about BillO, which I guess we already knew.

    • Spotts1701, Nothingburger Chef

      Considering what he did, the last thing she probably wanted was to be anywhere near him unless she could carry a stun gun.

    • Wookie Monster

      The problem is, a lot of people who do know Trump say he’s a narcissistic asshole. That’s why the only people who stay with him long term are relatives and massive ass-kissers like Omerosa.

        Trump’s physique demands only massive ass kissers.

    Democrats are getting some very good news in special elections
    By Aaron Blake September 13 at 1:56 PM

    According to data assembled by Daily Kos and mapped by Daniel Donner, Democrats have performed better than Hillary Clinton in 27 out of 35 congressional and state-legislative special elections held this year. And they’ve done better than President Barack Obama’s 2012 margins in 25 out of 35.
    They’ve also won a Republican-held seat a whopping one-fourth of the time — in six out of 24 opportunities. The GOP has no pick-ups in its 11 chances.

      I really don’t understand this behavior towards their paying guests. Like, I’ve been in the restaurant business for a looooooong time. If your money is green and you don’t drive home drunk then you’re fine by me? Please come back and buy stuff again!

      Also, like, don’t they have even a little bit of landlord/tenant responsibility? I guess things are different at hotels?

      • Spotts1701, Nothingburger Chef

        Well, as the article said there have been some of the more sketchy “franchised” hotels that would check someone in, collect their money, then call ICE so they could re-rent the room and pocket the money.

    • BosGrl

      So if I go to a Motel 6, my name goes to the fucking government? There is something very, very wrong here.

      • jowgajen

        Well most states require hotels and motels to check ID and keep a ledger of guests. I don’t think they get automagically turned in each night, though.

        • Zippy W Pinhead

          but not nightly reports unasked

        • BosGrl

          OK – but I’m assuming the ledger needs a search warrant? or no?

          • jowgajen

            Doubtful they need a warrant, it’s public info type stuff.

          • BosGrl

            Seems wrong.

          • Spotts1701, Nothingburger Chef

            The Supreme Court held in 2015 that law enforcement could not demand a hotel’s registry without a search warrant.
            But there’s nothing stopping the hotel from volunteering to give that list to police.

        • Meccalopolis

          They do in Europe

      • Zippy W Pinhead

        Beyond the fact that you’re staying at a motel 6

        • BosGrl

          The one near me – no freaking way. The cops are there every night; that’s where they bust the dealers. Not sure why all the dealers continue to stay there, though.

          • Zippy W Pinhead

            they are all like that

          • BosGrl

            :(

          • C4TWOMAN

            They’ve paid off management to look the other way?

          • BosGrl

            But the cops are there all the time. Always flashing lights there.

          • C4TWOMAN

            They’re not paying enough?

        • Eileen Besse

          Sometimes that’s what there is, unfortunately.

    • WomanInThePersistence

      Why on earth is Motel 6 checking people’s immigration/citizenship status?

      • Jamoche

        They’re sending everybody’s names.

        • WomanInThePersistence

          That’s still fucking bizarre. Are they trying to spam ICE? (Which I would approve of, btw.)

          • Jamoche

            http://www.phoenixnewtimes.com/news/motel-6-calling-ice-undocumented-guests-phoenix-immigration-lawyers-9683244

            A Phoenix New Times review of court records found that between February and August, ICE agents made at least 20 arrests at Motel 6s, showing up roughly every two weeks. (Since many of the documents we reviewed contained only vague details about where ICE encountered an individual, the actual number is likely even higher.)

          • WomanInThePersistence

            JFC.

          • jowgajen

            Read the article a little further and the clerk they interviewed says that if you have a warrant then local law enforcement “will come pick you up.” So what I presume is happening is, Motel 6 has an agreement to send info to LLE, possibly because they would like to keep the drug dealer/prostitute population down at their fine establishment. And LLE is sending the info on to ICE.

    • Parakeetist

      I went there once. Checked in for two nights. Drunken fight broke out in the room next to me. Some guy kept knocking on my door. I checked out early and got a refund for the second day.

      I’m never going back there.

      • Spotts1701, Nothingburger Chef

  • Angela Ruzzo

    When I was six the local TV channel showed a documentary called “Night And Fog” on a cold, rainy, winter Sunday afternoon because there was nothing better to show. It’s about the Nazi Holocaust. After they showed photos of the crematoria with human bones in them, I turned to my mother and said “Why did they do that?” I was only 6, but I immediately knew it was wrong and inexplicable. My mother put down her knitting and looked at me for a few seconds and said “I don’t know. Nobody knows.” I was shocked. I thought my mother knew everything.

    • P’jama Pahnts

      Did she explain that some of the nazis were good people?

      • Angela Ruzzo

        Considering that she had been an Army nurse during WWII, and my father had also been in the Army during WWII, I’m not sure she was familiar with the concept of “Good Nazis.”

    • Michael Smith

      Um, actually the correct answer to your question was “Because they are liberals who believe in gay marriage.”

    • It was because they just cared so much about State’s Rights.

      Oh no wait, that’s the racist excuse for committing treason and fratricide rather than give up the practice of buying and selling other humans like farm animals.

      • Michael Smith

        I heard the Nazis did the Holocaust because they wanted to preempt the White Genocide that was around the corner.

        • Angela Ruzzo

            What War on Christmas? I haven’t seen a War on Christmas. Is there a War on Christmas? Seems to me they start playing Xmas music in stores in late September these days, instead of waiting until after Halloween as they did for 20 years, prior to which they didn’t start playing it until after Thanksgiving. Give them time, and they will start playing it the day after Labor Day.

          • BosGrl

          • P’jama Pahnts

      “Nacht und Nebel”… It was required viewing when I was in high school. I’ve never forgotten it.

      • Angela Ruzzo

        It’s on Netflix right now. Another strange movie I saw as a child that haunted me is “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge.” It’s about a Confederate soldier about to be hung from a bridge. I remembered it for years, and 20 years later saw it at a film festival. I had remembered it in color, but it was in B&W.

        • Meccalopolis

          Good one

        • Cock Blockula

          We had to watch that one too!

    • C4TWOMAN

      My first awareness of Nazis was through “Hogan’s Heroes”. Bumbling villians, but obviously villians. Later, around 13, I saw “the Diary of Anne Frank” on TV, a much less lulzy experience. From that moment I hated Nazis.
      However one learns about them, they are always the villains.
      Unless your parents are Holocaust deniers…then I suppose you might learn they were “misunderstood heroes trying to purify the White Race”. Even so you’d KNOW most people think that’s bullshit.
      Spin fail, Bill O’liely.

      • Angela Ruzzo

        My sister took me to see the 1959 movie version of “The Diary of Anne Frank” when I was about 8. It ends with the sound of those weird European police sirens. To this day I can’t stand European police sirens when I hear them, I always think “The Nazis are coming.” I have been walking down the street in England and France and heard those sirens, and I felt the most incredible terror for a second.

          Don’t forget the devoted Dutch couple, Miep and Jan Gees, who protected and fed them at great risk to their lives, and who saved the diary. I don’t know anybody in the Alt-Right who would do such a thing.

    So long has it been since my last response but this war offers no respite and what spare time I do find, no daylight I have with which to write by. At times I feel as if the enemy may be better equipped mentally and physically and that perhaps our cause not so noble.

    All is not thoroughly bleak, for last week we were treated to a visit from the great General William O’Reilly who regaled the boys with a merry rum punch and heroic tales of his days on the Falklands battlefields. But alas it’s during rare moments of quietude such as the present when the melancholy overtakes me and I once again find myself wishing for this wretched war come to a swift end and for the day when at last I hold you in my arms again.

    Until then, with all my love,

    • Dudleydidwrong

      As one who grew up during World War II, I and my playmates knew damn well Nazis were bad. Our fathers were away, fighting them. Our mothers were working two jobs and trying to keep the families housed and fed because of them. Our newspapers were filled with articles, pictures, maps about them. The Saturday news reels before the matinee hit home with a (sanitized) view of what was going on.

      We’ve done a piss-poor job of passing on this sense of Nazis as the evil incarnate, and I say that as one who taught history for almost 30 years, because people like O’Reilly, Trump, and the sniveling assholes in the present incarnations of Nazism didn’t get it. We tried, most of us teachers and professors, anyway. Sorry.

  • Wolf Tracker

    I think the problem is many racists and bigots do not associate themselves with Nazism.

    To them Nazis were those Germans that worse Swastikas that we fought many years ago for attacking us and oh yeah they put Jews in ovens.

    They will say they are not Germans, thought Hitler was a madman and they have Jewish neighbors so they can’t possibly be Nazis.

    So we need to be careful that we don’t over associate Nazism with the real threat of racism, bigotry, fascism and a supremacist ideology and it is not just white people that can be those things.

    It is that supremacist ideology that leads people to treat other people as less than them and it is not a big step from that ideology to abusing people and killing them because of a supremacist ideology sees people they don’t like as less than them and subhuman.

    We need to call out a supremacist ideology where ever it shows up.

      He’s apparently also never seen a movie in his 70-plus years. That he’s never read a book in his life is very close to a certainty. If he’d ever read MEIN KAMPF he’d probably have thought, “This guy writes well and is quite the political thinker, I must get him on my team.” Then his minders would have been in the awkward position of having to tell him gently, “Uh, sir, that man has been dead for a long time and he’s, uh, not generally remembered as nice.”
      Of course he did get Steve Bannon on his team. Next best thing. At least since Putin and Duterte are busy running their own countries.

    As much as I loathe Bill O’Reilly, he deserves some kind of award for actually being more penetrating (!) on this subject than Super Mama’s Boy Trump Apologist Jonah Goldberg, who writes that Antifa loves Stalin like Nazis love Hitler. http://nypost.com/2017/08/17/fighting-nazis-doesnt-make-antifa-the-good-guys/

    “a point at which I knew little else about history other than that Columbus was also bad”

    History education must have gotten better since my day, since all I ever learned about Columbus before college was that he was the great hero who in 1492 sailed the ocean blue and discovered America. Hell, my city even renamed a major arterial semi-highway road after him in 1992, although everyone still calls it Delaware Avenue and not Columbus Boulevard.

    • Robyn Pennacchia

      OH. I did not learn that in school. I learned it from my mom who was very upset that they told us lies about Columbus on Columbus day, and wanted to make sure I knew what was up.

        Your mom sounds badass!

  • Daniel Hooper

    Given the quote about O’Reilly being an editor to a hypothetical feminist reporter; I’m not quite sure how to read that. By itself it could read as him just being a sexist asshole who thinks a woman’s feelings about Trump will color her reporting, but it kind of also reads to me like O’Reilly might be trying to spare her either having to deal with Trump or having her judgement questioned by others because of her feminist leanings.
    He may be being a shitty human, but he may also just being doing a shitty job being human. In that case, give him a break; it’s probably his first time doing it.

      I’ve wondered that for many years, ever since he said of a child kidnap/rape victim – he liked not having to go to school like he had to with his OLD PARENTS. That’s not an exact quote, because it’s been so long and I really don’t want to search out the story. After he said it, he was uninvited to speak to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. You’d think that anyone who said a child preferred to be raped than go to school would be anathema, but not on Fox.

    Pretzel twisting is becoming a favourite pastime of Trumpians who have to constantly defend the indefensible.

    According to said pretzel twisting defense by O’Reilly above, Trump can be excused for his White Supremacist supporting because a.)he’s ignorant about white supremacists and don’t know enough of them (which of course is bullshit), and b.) he was an emotional man being emotional (and not an emotional woman, that’s DIFFERENT!) so that was ok and good because people want that and he got elected, he won!!!

    right.

    So, Mr O’Reilly. A question if you will.

    If Trump were to drop a nuke tomorrow somewhere, North Korea, Iran, New York, wherever, resulting in thousands of deaths and a disaster of unmitigated proportions.

    Would it be all right if he defends himself by saying a.) he is ignorant about the history of nukes, what are are and what they actually can do, and b.) he was emotional at the time, he dropped that nuke because he was emotional alright? It’s what the people want in the President, it’s what got him the win, SO MUCH WINNING!

    Would that be reasonable?

    Oh and yes, O’Reilly also just said that an ignorant and emotional man as President is a good thing.

    Because.

    • SayItWithWookies

      Because his voters are also ignorant and emotional, so it resonates.

    “Because when women have emotions they are irrational and incompetent, but when men have emotions — even if it results in incompetency — they’re just being their authentic selves.”

    I can kind of see Loofa-boy’s first point: For a 71 year old man, Nazi’s can be pretty confusing.

    Ivanka named her daughter for Churchill’s granddaughter Arabella, and, supposedly, Trump likes to look gruff so he resembles Churchill. LOL. Also, he returned the Churchill bust to the Oval Office, because Americans are supposed to revere WSC for his DEFEAT OF THE NAZIS.
    Perhaps, instead of too emotional, Trump’s just too demented and can’t remember which side is which.

    It’s not even the Nazis. A person from the one side murdered someone, and attempted a mass murder. You don’t get to say “many sides” then. You point your finger at the side with the murderer and say “not good!”

    I’m guessing Fred Trump was known to say an approving thing or two about Hitler in the 1930s, before it became completely socially unacceptable. When Donnie was little and WW2 was brought up, Fred probably made comments along the lines that you shouldn’t blame all Germans for the actions of a few bad ones, while making broad derogatory statements about black people. This was the lesson Trump learned about Nazis growing up.

  • Viktor

    First Trump denies knowing the holocaust. Then later he admits he might have met him once, but if her were in a room with him now, he wouldn’t recognize him. Then Trump says Jared didn’t meet the holocaust, but later finds out he had a meeting with him and denies knowing anyone named Jared.

    • javadavis

      Also, too, Bill claims to be in contact with Trump currently (“And I tell him all the time, “Look, you’re the president …”) and all the time. I just cannot picture two narcissists like these two actually getting along with each other long enough to have a conversation. But then, the narcissists I have known didn’t invite me into their interactions with other narcissists, so how can I know what that would look like?

  • javadavis

    Trump does understand history to some extent, as Bill claims. However, he never did buy that whole “Nazis are bad” idea. You would think he would be less pro-Nazi, what with his “I don’t like losers” attitude toward so many other things. (except the Confederacy and similar loser groups)
    I think that it is because he agrees with Nazis. They are his base because they really are on the same page.
