Bill O’Reilly Mocks CNN’s Brooke Baldwin for Interviewing Pro-Trump Syrian Pundit (Mediaite)
Did you tune into tonight’s O’Reilly Factor on Fox News? Maybe you did. A lot of people have in the wake of all those sexual harassment allegations and the reports that he and Fox settled with the women for big money.
If you did, you saw that Bill O’Reilly and Brit Hume take aim at CNN’s Brooke Baldwin, for speaking to a Syrian refugee a few times last week. Like other reporters, she was interested in finding out how people are perceiving the contrast between Donald Trump‘s refusal to allow refugees into America and his choice to send missiles to Syria to avenge children hurt in a gas attack there.
The refugee she spoke to praised Trump’s choice to send missiles, which caused O’Reilly to speculate, “What essentially happened there was CNN was looking for an anti-Trump soundbite from Mr. Eid and didn’t get it.”
“She must have felt that she woke up the wrong passenger,” said Hume after O’Reilly laughed about Baldwin.
Watch above to see O’Reilly accuse Baldwin of asking “a leading question,” then assert that he has never done that and neither has Fox colleague Hume.
