Bill O’Reilly told a guest not to call Hillary Clinton “crooked” despite her numerous scandals.
During the June 7 edition of the O’Reilly Factor, guest Bernard McGuick called the Democratic frontrunner “Crooked Hillary,” a name made popular by Donald Trump, but O’Reilly quickly reprimanded him.
“Crooked? Now come on,” he said. “No, no, no, NO ‘Crooked Hillary’ on this program.”
“Trump can do that because that’s what he does, [but] not YOU,” he added while pointing at McGuick.
It seems like O’Reilly is turning into a white knight to defend the “honor” of Madam Clinton, even though the dictionary defines “crooked” as “dishonest or illegal.”
It was certainly dishonest and illegal for Clinton to approve weapons deals to foreign governments who donated to the Clinton Foundation prior to and while she was Secretary of State.
“In the years before Hillary Clinton became secretary of state, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia contributed at least $10 million to the Clinton Foundation, the philanthropic enterprise she has overseen with her husband, former president Bill Clinton,” the International Business Times reported. “Just two months before the State Dept.deal was finalized, Boeing — the defense contractor that manufactures one of the fighter jets the Saudis were especially keen to acquire, the F-15 — contributed $900,000 to the Clinton Foundation, according to a company press release.”
“The Saudi deal was one of dozens of arms sales approved by Hillary Clinton’s State Department that placed weapons in the hands of governments that had also donated money to the Clinton family philanthropic empire, an International Business Times investigation has found.”
Trump said Hillary turned the State Dept. into her own “private hedge fund.”
“The Russians, the Saudis, the Chinese all gave money to Bill and Hillary and got favorable treatment in return,” he said Tuesday. “It’s a sad day in America when foreign governments with deep pockets have more influence in our own country than our great citizens.”
Despite all of that, and Hillary’s numerous other scandals including Benghazi, O’Reilly doesn’t want to call Hillary “crooked” because that’s what Trump calls her.
It would appear he’s more concerned with disagreeing with Trump than holding Hillary accountable for her crimes, but if she’s worthy of the name “Crooked Hillary,” then who cares if Trump calls her “crooked” as well?
