Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump appeared on Bill O’Reilly’s show with the host asking the hotel magnate about his controversial retweet which displayed false statistics about crime according to race. The statistics Trump circulated originated from a Hitler sympathizer on Twitter.
At the beginning of the segment, O’Reilly, who has consistently painted a dubious picture of black people and their families, agreed with Trump: the GOP frontrunner is not a racist.
“Are you aware that the left and the Democratic party are trying to paint you as racist?,” O’Reilly asked.
“I’m aware,” Trump responded, “but people who know me know, I’m probably the least racist person on the Earth.”
“I’ve known you a long time and I never saw any racism from you,” O’Reilly said.
It’s worth noting that due to Trump’s offensive comments about Mexicans, he garnered the white supremacist vote. Adding to that, he wants to ‘tag’ Syrian refugees, and the fact he wants to shutter ‘certain’ mosques. Then there’s the shouts of ‘white power’ that were heard at his rally in Alabama — also, his supporters beating people of a minority status at his rallies puts Trump in a place of honor with the white pride vote.
Aside from all of that and more, Donald Trump is not a racist, according to the racist Republican candidate.
O’Reilly brought up the “infographic” that was first circulated by a neo-Nazi and contains statistics which have been debunked. The false statistics envelope racist propaganda circulated in order to justify allowing injustices to be perpetrated against black people.
Trump defended himself by saying he “didn’t tweet it — I re-tweeted somebody who was supposedly an expert and is also a radio show.”
“Yeah, yeah,” O’Reilly responded, “but why do you even want to be in that zone?”
“You know I’m looking out for you, right? I’m looking out for you, I look out for every honest politician,” O’Liar said. “I don’t care what party they’re in.”
“Bill, am I going to check every statistic?” Trump replied. “I’ve got millions and millions — ”
“You’re a presidential contender!,” O’Reilly remarked.
“All it was was a re-tweet,” Trump said. “It wasn’t from me. And it came out of a radio show and other places.”
O’Reilly shot back at Trump saying, “don’t do this. Don’t put your name on stuff like this, because it makes the other side — it gives them stuff to tell the ill-informed voter that you’re a racist.”
Yes, that’s it. It’s the left’s fault that a racist is perceived as a racist.

However, Trump still insisted that the source of the false statistics was “very credible.”
Who amongst us does not go to a neo-nazi when looking for credible information on crimes committed by black people?
O’Reilly is just as guilty as Trump. The Fox host has gone off on racist rants previously, one in which he blames what he calls the ‘gangsta culture’ among blacks for crimes committed against African-Americans, yet he always dismisses the perpetrators of white-on-black crimes.
We wait in anticipation for O’Reilly’s report on the white supremacists who just gunned down five Black Lives Matter protesters. Surely he’ll be all over that.
We’re also sure that Donald Trump would agree that the Fox News host is not a racist either.
