Twitter Is Mocking Bill O'Reilly After His 'Research' Concluded That Trump Isn't Racist

Ousted Fox News host Bill O'Reilly made waves on Tuesday by asserting that the research he did for an upcoming book proved that Trump has never encouraged White supremacists.

And, he added, Trump certainly isn't one himself.

Or racist.

The O'Reilly Factor host was famously fired from his longtime gig at the conservative news juggernaut in 2017 after a string of sexual harassment allegations and subsequent multi-million dollar payouts.

But that hasn't stopped him from trying to stay relevant.

In a tweet on Tuesday morning, O'Reilly said that research for his upcoming book The United States of Trump failed to uncover any instances of President Trump "discussing skin color in a pejorative way or promoting Caucasian dominance."

One glance at the news on any day of the week will show otherwise, particularly considering the rise in incidents involving White nationalists and people of color since Trump took office.

Not to mention, oh, Trump referring to Haiti and African nations as "sh*thole countries," his outrageous "birther" movement against former President Barack Obama, and his repeated attacks on Muslims and immigrants that don't come from Europe.

Plus there's his history of housing discrimination, racist comments about Native Americans and the Central Park 5.

O'Reilly then claimed that Trump's statements have been used to create a "racial theory."

Whatever that means.

But O'Reilly's "research" doesn't seem very thorough, according to Twitter.

So they helped him out by doing a little digging of their own.






Time to hire some new researchers, Bill.





Given O'Reilly's close relationship with President Trump, is anyone really surprised at his findings?
