Bill O


Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly appeared on the 10/14 episode of “The View” and caused a bit of controversy with his statements. His opinions on the proposed decision to build a mosque near Ground Zero in NYC enraged co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar to the point they stormed off the set mid-interview.

The video starts off with O’Reilly questioning President Obama’s support of the center, which got him an interruption from Behar. He responded to with, “Listen to me because you’ll learn!…70% of Americans do not want that mosque there.” Next, Goldberg who after O’Reilly said, “Muslims killed us on 9/11,” replied, “That is such bullsh*t! Extremists did that!”

Barbara Walters tried to smooth things over by stating that O’Reilly can’t blame an entire religion for what some extremists did, and added: “You have just seen what should not happen. We should be able to have discussions without…walking off the set.”

Goldberg and Behar eventually did come back out after storming off.
