In a recent televised CNN town hall, President Joe Biden said that our greatest domestic terror threat is the well-documented rise of White supremacy.

Twitter was ready with about a million snarky answers for O'Reilly.

It almost seems as if the former Fox News host hasn't been paying attention to current events since getting kicked off the network.

Many people online not-so-subtly implied that O'Reilly himself had played a role in the rise of White supremacism.
