Fox News’ The O’Reilly Factor host Bill O’Reilly has apologized after making some insensitive remarks about U.S. Representative Maxine Waters.

“As I have said many times, I respect Congresswoman Maxine Waters for being sincere in her beliefs,” Bill said in a statement of apology (via Variety). “I said that again today on Fox & Friends calling her ‘old school.’ Unfortunately, I also made a jest about her hair which was dumb. I apologize.”

    <- I was without work for 6 months when my former Co-worker lastly recommended me to start freelancing at home… It was only after I gained $5000 in my initial month when I really believed I am able to do this for a living! At the moment I am joyful than ever… I work-from-home moreover I am my own boss now like I always wanted… I see quite a lot of unsatisfied people around me, working the same old boring job that is sucking the daily life out of all of them day-after-day… Each time I see anybody similar to that I say START FREELANCING MAN! This is how I started………………… http://urlbly.com/3Zwzwra

    Wait a minute.
    Liberals joke about Trump’s hair and color all day long. But somehow it’s racist to make ANY comment about a person of color? It wouldn’t have mattered what o’reilly commented on. Simply by virtue of her being black and him white, from a libs perspective, his ONLY motivation was he’s a racist. I’m so tired of that complaint, but even more tired of it still working!

    Umm what??? First of all, Maxine and Donald don’t even share the same personalities, values/beliefs or even character to even compare the two. False equivalency. Secondly, I agree it wrong to talk about people. However that still makes Bill wrong AND presumably “racist” because he called her hair fake and compared her to a man, two things that have historically been used by racists to belittle black women for decades (if not centuries) AND based on his previous statements towards non-whites, I can see how calling him a racist isn’t a stretch.
