Reminder: Donald Also Admitted He Sexually Harasses Women

Republicans and their media lapdogs are having a field day over movie mogul Harvey Weinstein’s admissions that he sexual harassed actresses and female employees — trotting out the old “boeth sides do it” trope because Weinstein has contributed heavily to Democratic Party causes and candidates.

They conveniently forget that in the infamous “Access Hollywood” video, which surfaced one year ago this month, Donald Trump also admitted that he routinely uses his celebrity status to sexually harasses women. Since then 11 women have come forward with accusations against him.

To help them remember this important fact, we’re re-posting the “Access Hollywood” video.

Nettled He Settled

The Predator-In-Chief, oh, he’s wiley,
He understands when a guy’s being guy-y.
Bill did nothing wrong
With his hands or his dong,
Which is why Trump is defending O’Reilly.

Fox Calls ‘Clinton Cash’ Lie About Foundation’s Spending ‘Incredibly Misleading’

Eric Shawn

One of the more startling assertions about the Clinton Foundation made in “Clinton Cash,” the controversial book by former Sarah Palin adviser Peter Schweizer, is that just 10 percent of the billions donated to the foundation goes to charitable activities. The rest, Schweizer has suggested, is pocketed by the Clintons.

Not surprisingly, Schweizer’s assertion has been proved to false. In fact, the 10 percent figure is such a flagrant lie that it couldn’t even pass muster on Fox. On May 6, Fox viewers were exposed to a rare glimpse of the truth, when Eric Shawn, one of the fake news channel’s “real” reporters, appeared on the network’s flagship broadcast, “The O’Reilly Factor”:

That Lying O’Reilly

O’Reilly was there with John Wilkes Booth.
He watched them kill George Patton, forsooth!
Bill can tell a story
That covers him in glory,
But what he can’t do is simply tell the truth.

Fox News Has Stopped Defending Liar Bill O’Reilly

Over the past week, Fox News has aggressively rebutted accusations that its star host Bill O’Reilly lied about his whereabouts during the Falklands War in 1982. But after a new report challenged O’Reilly’s recent claim that he was present at the violent suicide of a Lee Harvey Oswald acquaintance in 1977, the network declined to defend him. Is Fox blinking?

Limbaugh Conservatism Versus O’Reilly Conservatism

There are various ways to describe the civil war rising inside the Republican Party: insiders versus outsiders, pragmatists versus true-believers, establishment versus Tea Party. Here’s another: Bill O’Reilly conservatives versus Rush Limbaugh conservatives. … O’Reilly and Limbaugh are both conservative; they both idealize an older, pre-lapsarian America that they believe leftists want to destroy in the name of progress. The difference is that Limbaugh’s conservative vision is more static and more personal. For O’Reilly, traditional morality is not an abstract, coherent set of beliefs; it’s the folk wisdom of ordinary people at any given moment, and it can change.

O’Reilly Says Watching ‘Glee’ Will Turn Kids Gay, Just Like Watching James Dean Movies Made Him Want to Smoke

After the Fox network show “Glee” featured a trans character last week, Fox News’ resident social scientists Bill O’Reilly and Gretchen Carlson did a segment on O’Reilly’s show in which they warned Fox News’ audience of predominantly elderly viewers that teenagers who watch “Glee” without parental supervision, often while doing drugs, are likely to choose to be gay:

Oh Yeah, THIS Will Help Republicans Among Women

OReillyHair

O’Reilly posted a video someone made of Democratic National Committee Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (Fla.) talking about her curly hair and then commenting on a recent news story with a new, straight hairstyle.

Hey Debbie: Love the new look. You go, girl.

Hey Bill: Srsly? Moron.

O’Reilly: Next Time You Hear a Politician Say He or She Will Bring Down Oil Prices Understand It’s Complete [Bull Shit]

Next time you hear a politician say he or she will bring down oil prices understand it’s complete [bull shit]. Americans want lower gas prices — cut back. Sell those SUVs. Ride a bike when you can. If every one of us bought 10 percent less gasoline, prices would fall fast. That’s what the candidates should be saying. We need a strong leader who’s honest, smart, courageous and willing to explain dubious associations. That’s what we need.

Report: GOP-Fox Mouthpiece Bill O’Reilly Bribed Police to Investigate Wife’s Alleged Affair with a Cop

screenshot-gawker-oreillyAs a leading Republican Party propagandist, Bill O’Reilly often holds himself up as an arbiter of “family values.” In 2004, of course, O’Reilly and his employer settled a sexual harassment lawsuit brought by a former Fox employee for an undisclosed sum. Now Gawker is reporting that O’Reilly is involved in what ultimately may become a much bigger scandal:

Last summer, Fox News anchor Bill O’Reilly came to believe that his wife was romantically involved with another man. Not just any man, but a police detective in the Long Island community they call home. So O’Reilly did what any concerned husband would do: He pulled strings to get the police department’s internal affairs unit to investigate one of their own for messing with the wrong man’s lady.
