Earlier this week, Fox turned on GOP frontrunner Donald Trump once and for all after he slammed Megyn Kelly when she returned from vacation on Monday. Despite the fact that Trump brings in record ratings for the network, Fox head Roger Ailes made it clear that they want nothing more to do with him.
On his show Thursday night, Bill O’Reilly defied Fox to rush to Trump’s defense after the business mogul was attacked by liberal nitwit Jorge Ramos.
“Those who despise Trump are trying to use the Ramos incident as another example of his immaturity and hostility to those with whom he disagrees,” O’Reilly said, according to Conservative Tribune. “But if you step back and look at it objectively, who’s really being up front with the American people?”
“Jorge Ramos has now become an advocate for people who enter the USA illegally, and that has superseded his job as journalist,” O’Reilly added.
You can watch O’Reilly’s full defense of Trump in the video below. The O’Reilly Factor host is likely to get lots of flack for this from network heads, but we doubt he cares about that one bit!
