‘Can You Spell Hillary!?’ CNN Panel Laments Trump Would Not Be President But for Bill O’Reilly

(Bizpac Review) – O’Reilly created Trump’s presidency? Who knew?

Former Fox News flagship personality Bill O’Reilly’s public ousting for alleged sexual harassment was a major news item across all TV media, including CNN.

So much so, that CNN took it over-the-top when an anchor claimed that the Donald Trump presidency was an O’Reilly creation.

“I want to pivot to Bill O’Reilly,” CNN “Early Start” anchor Alison Kosik said Thursday morning at about the 27:10 mark into the broadcast.

She observed that President Donald Trump defended O’Reilly as a “good person” two weeks earlier in a New York Times interview.

Believing that “I don’t think Bill did anything wrong,” Trump told the paper O’Reilly shouldn’t have agreed to settle previous harassment claims lodged against him.

“What’s behind this – this defense coming from Donald Trump?” Kosik wanted to know of CNN’s politics reporter Tal Kopan.

“And if you think about Bill O’Reilly, you know, he sort of created this movement, didn’t he? And many think that if there was no Bill O’Reilly, there would be no President Donald Trump.”

Kopan agreed that there was a long relationship that had developed between O’Reilly and Trump as well as Fox News and Trump.

“He would call in frequently and talk to them,” she said. “And you, know, even through the campaign and the beginning of his presidency, O’Reilly was one of his key stops when he tried to sell his message.”

Kopan went on to observe that the network played a role in developing the Trump’s conservative persona.

“And then, on top of that, you get into sort of the theory of conservatism and populism, and how Fox News and O’Reilly in particular really sort of pioneered that style. Certainly, you know, the Trump effect owes quite a bit to that groundwork.”

Kopan also found it curious that Trump would defend O’Reilly on the sexual misconduct claims “given … the infamous tape that came out about Donald Trump.”

Trump and O’Reilly “have been friends for decades,” “Early Start” co-anchor Dave Briggs said. “A good question — would we have President Trump if we didn’t have Bill O’Reilly? Thank you, Tal.”

Then again, maybe it’s all conjecture with a dash of conspiracy thrown in. Nonetheless it gave social media a good chuckle.

Yet another familiar Fox News face announced Wednesday that she’d been harassed by O’Reilly, while Glenn Beck, another former O’Reilly colleague expressed doubt about the veracity of the claims.
