Wigs got twisted, Botox foreheads wrinkled and nostrils flared up when O’Reilly stated that the reason President Obama’s Approval rating is so low is because he wasn’t against the building of the Ground Zero Mosque, and that Americans are furious since “Muslims killed us on 9/11″.
Clearly one of the most heated discussions ever on ABC’s “The View,” hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar stormed off the stage in front of a packed audience after a heated debate erupted with Bill O’Reilly about the controversial Muslim Mosque contemplating being built in New York City, near Ground Zero. The dolls lost their cool demeanor’s and held back from slapping him……they eventually came back to finish the heated discussion. It made for a great WTF unscripted television segment…..
Before Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg stormed off the show, Goldberg yelled, “You’re saying that Americans are not smart enough to recognize that while it is part of our Constitution to say freedom of religion and freedom to worship and there were 70 families who are Muslim who also died in that building. So you’re saying that his saying that they have the right to do it and not saying anymore is why his approval ratings have gone down?”
This left the mother hen Barbara Walters to explain to O’Reilly to quickly jumped in and exclaimed, “You have just seen what should not happen… we should be able to have discussions without washing our hands and screaming and walking off stage. I love my colleagues, but that should not have happened”. Of course it should not happen but it did……
On her Headline News show Thursday night, Behar continued her O’Reilly rant, stating that he had a “pinhead moment.”
She said she was “really angry … I thought he was saying something that I construe as hate speech, frankly.”
O’Reilly also weighed in on The View incident during his “Talking Points Memo” on Fox News’ The O’Reilly Factor Thursday night.
Defending his controversial remarks, he said, “I am not in the business of sugar coating harsh realities … I enjoy jousting with The View ladies because, with the exception of Elizabeth Hasselbeck, they don’t see it my way. I loved that exposition today. Didn’t you?”
