Jorge Ramos was recently on Bill O’Reilly to promote his book “Take A Stand: Lessons From Rebels.” So, what did O’Reilly want to talk about? Donald Trump. Not only does O’Reilly claim, once again, that he doesn’t know what racism is, but he also painted himself as one of Trump’s defenders. O’Reilly, maybe it’s time for you to chill out, “mi amigo.”
Bill O’Reilly was quick out of the gate, throwing unneeded shade when introducing Jorge Ramos.
His exact quote, as his lips curled into a smile is, “The network Univision reaches millions of Spanish-speaking Americans and its primary anchor, Jorge Ramos, was actually ejected from a Donald Trump rally a few months ago. You may remember that.”
After that, it was game on.
And Ramos came to play, honey!
Right after the intro, and before Ramos said a word, O’Reilly questioned Univision’s ability to “report fairly.”
Remember, this is coming from a guy who works for FOX NEWS. For context, Politifact claims that 29 percent of the statements made recently on Fox News are false. Twenty percent are mainly false and 9 percent are pants on fire. Let that sink in.
But, that’s cool because Ramos shut him down quickly and interrupted him with this statement.
O’Reilly then asked if Ramos and Univision could cover Trump’s campaign fairly since they have been so tough on him calling him “racist.” He said that Trump being a “racist” is Ramos’s subjective opinion. He continued says the reason Latinos have such a negative view of Trump is because of Univision and Ramos “demonizing him as a racist.”
Ramos responded in the best way possible.
Told you Ramos was here to play.
But the most memorable and telling moment of the whole interview was about that damn wall.
Spoiler Alert: O’Reilly is in favor of a wall to keep drugs out of the US…
