Bill O’Reilly seems to have reached his breaking point with Al Sharpton. Tonight on The Factor, O’Reilly decided to share a personal story in order to “prove” what type of a personal Sharpton is.
Previously, O’Reilly criticized a surfer who receives thousands of dollars in food stamps and the failure of the federal government to regulate who gets entitlements from the taxpayer. He said this on his show: “This guy’s a parasite and my contention is that the Obama Administration is encouraging parasites to come out and, you know, take as much as they can with no remorse. […] This is how a country declines.”
Al Sharpton took those comments and interpreted it as O’Reilly is “attacking the poor.”
Tonight, the Factor host said Sharpton is “not telling the truth once again.”
Here’s what O’Reilly called “the crusher” on Sharpton: “He’s been portraying me as a racist and a brutalizer of the poor. A few years ago Sharpton told me that his charity in Harlem, New York was out of money and that it could not provide Christmas presents and Christmas dinners to hundreds of poor people in Harlem. So I gave Sharpton a $25,000 dollar donation to provide the gifts and the food.”
He went on to say that it’s necessary to tell that story now in order to prove what kind of person Al Sharpton is. Read more via Fox News...
