Former beloved Fox News host Bill O’Reilly knows all about how the liberal media distorts things and creates hot-button stories out of thin air. After all, O’Reilly was the victim of a takedown that, with the assistance of executives at Fox News’ parent company 21st Century Fox, ended up costing him his job.
Recently, O’Reilly decided to respond to the latest liberal “outrage” story. This one involved an attention-starved Democratic congresswoman from Florida named Frederica Wilson who claimed that President Donald Trump insulted the widow of a slain soldier and did not even remember what his name was during a recent condolence call for the widow.
Rep. Wilson, of course, has absolutely no evidence to back this story up aside from what she claims that she heard while listening in on the two person phone call between Trump and the widow. Trump has aggressively denied that he made the statements that Wilson said he made.
Commented O’Reilly about the situation during an interview with Newsmax, “The thing that disturbs me is Congresswoman Wilson. They were given a 24-hour day. The family of the fallen Army Sgt. Johnson, who was a Green Beret, was given 24-hour notice that President Trump would call.” He added, “They gave that information to Congresswoman Wilson, who is an anti-Trump hater and has been from the jump. Also, she voted against all of the bills that would help the military.”
O’Reilly went on, “She knew the call was coming in, she was in the car when President Trump reached the widow, Myesha Johnson, 24 years old. Then, she goes out on CNN and says, ‘The president insulted Mrs. Johnson, made her cry.’” Bill concluded bluntly, “This looks to me to be a set up. It really does.” Do you think O’Reilly is correct?
