Bill O’Reilly Forced To Explain How TV Works To Sarah Palin After She Whines That He Was Mean (Video)

bill-oreilly-sarah-palin-1Who would have ever thought that a single speech in Iowa would have been the thing that finally brought down tea party hero Sarah Palin. Granted, she’s been a running joke for the majority of Americans for years, but following the embarrassing speech she gave a few days ago even many conservatives are running from her as fast as they can. Though the most embarrassing part of that entire speech wasn’t really the gibberish she spouted out, it’s the fact that as incoherent as that speech was, conservatives in attendance still stood up and cheered almost every single incomplete sentence she spouted out. It just goes to show that conservatives don’t care if what someone is saying makes any sense, as long as it sounds like something they want to hear. I don’t know anyone who could watch that speech and come away from it thinking, “You know, she made some very solid and articulate points.”

It was such bizarre drivel that it was nearly impossible to even transcribe. I’m not even sure how someone would go about transcribing a 30+ minute speech full of horrific grammar and sentences that lacked nouns or verbs. I watched her speech and it didn’t make any sense; I couldn’t imagine trying to read that train wreck.

Well, while speaking about the Iowa Freedom Summit (where this speech occurred) earlier this week, Bill O’Reilly made a joke about the fact that Palin and Donald Trump were “potential 2016 candidates” and how that would make for some riveting reality TV.

Apparently, Sarah Palin didn’t get the joke. During an interview with Sean Hannity, she went on another rant full of gibberish and incoherent thoughts about how conservatives need to stick together and how Bill O’Reilly is a big meanie.

“Even there on Fox, you know kind of a quasi- or assumed conservative outlet. And we have all day listening to the tease of Bill O’Reilly’s, he’s talking about the guests on his show tonight, or the commentary on his show, and that would be, ‘Oh, all these uh GOP contenders thinking about running for president like Donald Trump, Sarah Palin,’ and he names them off – he says, ‘Oh, what a reality show that would be, yuck-yuck.’”

If you can decipher her nonsense, that comment alone proves how delusional this woman is about her standing in politics. She hasn’t been an elected official since 2009, and since quitting her position as Governor of Alaska she hasn’t even come close to running for another political office. For all intents and purposes she’s now basically a reality show “actress” who dabbles in political commentary every once in a while. But it’s clear she thinks she’s something more than that, as you can tell by the extreme offense she took to O’Reilly’s essentially harmless comment.

Naturally, O’Reilly took the opportunity to respond to the former vice presidential candidate. After essentially being forced to explain how television works to Palin, the Fox News host said of her remarks, “If no offense is intended, don’t take offense. Your life will be happier.”

And while he might be claiming he didn’t mean to offend her, it’s clear that he (like most Americans) doesn’t take her seriously as a 2016 presidential candidate. In fact, it was essentially O’Reilly saying that Palin and Trump are one and the same – just two well-known individuals trying desperately to remain relevant. Which explains why both have a fondness for starring in their own reality TV shows that are basically nothing more than pathetic attempts to feel relevant in a world that would easily forget about them. Though at least in the case of Palin she’s still seen as a political figure to many, whereas Trump is just, well …Trump.


O’Reilly’s comments also seemed to be a jab at the fact that if there wasn’t truth to what he was saying about her potential 2016 candidacy essentially turning into a reality show, Palin wouldn’t have been offended by his remarks.

But if last week’s speech was any indication as to what a Sarah Palin presidential campaign might be like, sign me up – because I would love to sit back and watch this woman self-destruct in front of millions of Americans.

    What would really put the cream on top of all this would be MSNBC doing a take-down of Left-wing dingbat like Sharpton or Michael Moore or Holder.

    • The “left-wing” puts down “their own” all the time: John Stewart, SNL, TYT, etc. If all media is liberal to the right-wing except FOX, surley you need to stop watching FOX if you want to see “liberals” being call out.

      • Jim Bean

        Nah. If Stewart puts down the Right, you read about it on MMFA and FP the next day. If he puts down the Left – deafening silence is what you’ll get from those two.

      • regressive whitetrash GOP scum

        irrelevant– stewart puts down left also: but the regressive white trash rightwing religious scum give him 100 fold more ops to destroy. I NEVER hear beck or Limbaugh or malkin or bozell or savage or Levine call out rightwing cretins,,,EVER— PLUS: MSNBC FIRES ans/or disciplines people when they go off wrongly on their network. FOX “news”???? Hmmmmmmmm,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

      • Jim Bean

        MSNBC fires/disciplines people when slip up and say exactly what they are thinking. Fox encourages that kind of free expression – the fact that it infuriates the PC Left notwithstanding.

      • regressive whitetrash GOP scum

        “free expression”……..
        wow!!! I guess now U agree with what some idiots on the left and right say???
        Hmmmm? hey scumnag james: its funny how–in the past– U have decried comments from left leaning pundits; now– its “freedom of expression”!!
        U really are priceless-
        and yet again: where are U when shitbags such as beck and malkin(UGGHH) and limpbaugh make such inflamed lies as they make? ( do I need to provide quotes?)
        answer:
        U remain stoically mute

      • Jim Bean

        Three things: (your homework for tonight.)

        (1) Challenging the accuracy of something someone said.

        (2) Challenging the wisdom of actually saying out loud something that someone said.

        (3) Challenging the right of people to say what they want to say.

        To complete the assignment you must study the three statement and write a brief essay explaining how each one is distinguishably different from the other two.

        When you are finished you will want to apologize to me, and I will graciously accept.

      • regressive whitetrash GOP scum

        again,,,,,,,,,drunken jim bean spins away—
        where are (were?) you when white trash regressive scum such as malking / beck/ limp-baugh ETC make untrue and inflamed statements???
        ,,,,,,,,,,,,,MUTE

      • Jim Bean

        Same place I was when Allen Colmes and Al Sharpton were making theirs.

      • regressive whitetrash GOP scum

        correct——–
        you and I have been bantering on these sites for over a year; I have N..E..V..E..R.. read anything (from you) going after the cretins suchas beck and limp-baugh and malkin and Hannity ET AL
        ========================================
        Sharpton is a scumbag,,,,,,,,,,,,, colmes is a reasoned professional– never heard alan say the stuff your white trash regressive scum have puked up
        I wonder why I never read anything you say about the scum on the right…..HMMMMMMMMM
        perhaps I missed the “memo”?

      • Jim Bean

        Well let me satisfy your wonderment. I never hear what Hannity or Limbaugh say because I don’t care for them or listen to/watch them. When FP or MMFA bring him up and I check into it further, I always find they’re only giving me half the scoop.

        My brief exposure to Malkin has left me with the impression that she is nearly as good as Coulter at driving liberals out from behind the baseboard and into the light where she squashes them.

        As for Colmes, I see him occasionally. If he’s ever said anything fitting the definition of ‘reasoned’ I missed it. All I’ve seen from him is ‘defend the narrative no matter how silly it sounds.’

      • regressive whitetrash GOP scum

        narratives?
        Benghazi?
        IRS?
        EBOLA?
        ISIS?
        SPENDING? (see deficit shrinkage)
        KENYA?
        WAR ON CHRISTMAS?
        SHARIA LAW ?
        “COMING FOR (y)OUR GUNS”?
        ACA???????
        =========================================
        shall we review THOSE tattered and debunked narratives???

      • Fred Raby

        Sounds like you missed the train ! just sayin

      • regressive whitetrash GOP scum

        if it is the “train” which loads the fabulisms into lemmings such as you ( from FOX “news” ETC) Im pleased to have taken the quicker and more accurate reality- based rocket called “facts”
        =======================================
        ”jes’ sayin”

      • Fred Raby

        No matter how smart you try to sound, sorry dude it just ain’t workin !

      • regressive whitetrash GOP scum

        we both agree upon this entirely!!!

      • congero

        Giving out home work? You are so full of shit it hurts laughing at you. Hey did you see the study (article about it at this site) that found out of the 3 cable news outlets Fox lies the most?

      • congero

        Is that why the study found that Fox lies more than any other cable news outlet? Free expression is what you call it? Too funny.

      • congero

        MMFA stated goal is exposing right wing misinformation in the media so accusing it of being partisan is stupid. They don’t hide the fact Inspector Sherlock. You keep digging for that point. Lol.

      • Jim Bean

        I will agree with you on this one. Nowhere does MMFA suggest they are morally opposed to the dissemination of misinformation nor they do they suggest they won’t engage in it heavily themselves. They only state they will attack their political opponents over it.

      • congero

        You should be able to point it out then speaking of the misinformation. Now didn’t Fox argue and win a case finding they had a right to lie? Speaking of morals and lying why do you do it so often?

      • Jim Bean

        Google – fox sues for right to lie politifact – and click on the politifact link. (My links won’t post on FP, otherwise, I’d link you directly.) After reading it you’ll realize that you, yourself, might be called a liar by someone unwilling to consider that you may be an inherently honest person who is just uninformed or misinformed about things.

      • congero

        Lets see the same group that found Fox is the least trust worthy. Case dismissed. Lol

    • Sam Brosenberg

      The left has a few schmucks on our side, but we don’t have anyone who is as downright ignorant and stupid as Sarah Palin. That woman becoming a conservative icon is one of the best things to ever happen to the Democratic Party.

      • Fred Raby

        I know, she already cost the Dems both houses, how cool is that!!!

      • regressive whitetrash GOP scum

        and we can now see how involved the white trash regressive GOP scumbags are at legislating eh?

        ” abortion”…..”Benghazi”…….. “sue the president”…
        Mr Boehner and McConnell: where are the jobs???

      • Fred Raby

        Ask Obama, he’s been in charge for the last 6 years

      • regressive whitetrash GOP scum

        the answer is:
        (a) best job creation (2014) year in 15 yrs ( Clinton)
        (b) most consecutive months of job creation OVER 200,000 per month since 1994 (Clinton)
        (c) unemployment at 5.785% (far lower than Reagans at the same time in office
        (d) job “participation rate” irrelevant as baby boomers retiring from workforce at 286,000 per month as well as many (such as I) becoming self employed; thus not calculated in “employment” numbers VISAVIS weekly/bi-weekly taxation.
        (e) fastest DEFICIT reduction since IKE
        (IKE– the most recent great republican president)

      • congero

        Hahaha…too funny.

    • sherry06053

      None of those you just listed have presidential ambitions. Imagine a world in which Sarah Palin is in a position of power…ewwwww!

      • Fred Raby

        She’s already in a position of power and she’s not even running for anything , yet!

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

        power over who? She is a punchline to anyone who is not an ignorant of bagger. And yes, please encourage her to run. That provided us with some great laughs!

      • regressive whitetrash GOP scum

        she is sexy for a middle aged female

      • regressive whitetrash GOP scum

        her power is limited to the white trash regressive religious ( see: VOODOO) lemmings who suckle the flaccid tete of her and beck and limp-baugh and malkin (UGGHH),,,,,,,,,,,, and of course the “power ” to make $$$$ off of low IQ inbred white trash who ” BEEEE-LEEEVE”!!!
        >>>>>PRAI$E JE$U$<<<<<<<

    • MNLoonaTick

      I’m a fairly staunch libtard lefty. While my opinion of Holder is neither good nor bad, I do think Moore is 400 punds of excrement in a 350 pound bag and Sharpton just needs to shut his gob, and would LOVE to see them both taken down a few pegs.

      • regressive whitetrash GOP scum

        I don’t like shaprton either,,,,and Melissa perry is too tilted also,,,,,
        I want OLBERMANN BACK!!! he routinely destroyed Hannity and beck and oreilly!!!

      • Bonta-kun

        Leave him alone while he’s working on Goodell.

    • regressive whitetrash GOP scum

      or heavy drinker jim bean actually knowing what hes talking about,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
      say maybe: deficits? GOP VS DEMOCRAT policies ( and results) over the past 25 yrs??? dead soldiers and (9/11) americans? tax cuts for “job creators” ( that’s a fave of mine)
      ,,,,,,,and of course: JE$U$ in legislation!!!

    • congero

      Now why would MSNBC do that? Did they go to Steve “cantalope calves” event and give a rambling speech? What do they have to do with what Palin did and her reaction to what O’liely ‘ mo fo’ ice tea said?

      • regressive whitetrash GOP scum

        notice how jimbo goes mute on inquiries such as yours??
        Hmmmmmm…….

      • congero

        Smarter wing nuts would never admit to watching Fox Blues but this one is not smart enough to realize how discredited a source they are. He is a parrot and i don’t expect much from it and he doesn’t disappoint me. Limit exposure.

      • neworleans878

        Hey congero…miz julia at MMfA told me where you are these days since your departure from there…just wanted to give ya a shout out and say hey…hope all is well with you.

      • congero

        Hey my big easy brother. So nice of you to remember me. Thank you for dropping me a line. I always read your comments and share your views and enjoy your postings. You have so much to learn from and i do. Hope your sons are well and safe and i thank them and you and them for your sacrifices. Keep fighting to make this country live up to it’s ideals and one we can leave for our children better than what we grew up in. Step by step. Keep the faith brother. Be well. Thank my daisy Miz Julia also.

  • republic84

    Never thought I’d agree with Bill O’Reilly on anything, but yes that would make quite the reality show. The halfwit and the jackass together, big hair on one side and what ever that is on his head on the other.

    • Eg Kbbs

      AAARGH!!!! I find myself agreeing with Palin (O’Reilley is a big meanie) and agreeing with O’Reilley (Trump and Palin running would be riveting reality TV and Palin needs to have a lot of things explained to her – how TV works is just one of them).

      I agree with both of them. Is there an asteroid aimed at the earth for this afternoon ?

    • Paul McGee

      i agree with you on that

  • BPMM

    She is so polarizing and crude with her comments. I don’t think the Iowa speech was any worse than some of the others she has made. The straw that broke the camel’s back (no pun intended) was the FUC_ Michael Moore sign with the crosshairs in the o’s she was holding and giving a thumbs up (she even autographed it in the corner). The Christian family values she subscribes to flew right out the window and the conservative right knew it was time to jump ship.

  • Cin5456

    O’Reilly and Palin sparing about how to talk about politics. Just another circus act. Let’s move on.

  • doc3559

    there is so little substance in our national political dialogues. it always emphasizes personalities and who did something that could be spun as offensive. we need to discuss income distribution equality, lobbying reform, the deficit, unemployment, infrastructure, energy, the environment and terrorism.

  • Janice Luscher

    This is her way to get her fans to send money to her PAC and then she will use some of that money to rent her travel bus and to use for expenses so she can drive across the country to give incoherent speeches. If they are stupid enough to send money, she certainly will use it to make herself feel important.

  • Cemetery Girl

    I’m not a fan of Bill O’Reilly, but I will respect that he’s willing to point out that neither of them really have any political relevance. Trump really only should be relevant to discussions on prenuptial agreements. Palin… I can’t think of anything. Does she still have her show? Is it possible that this is all an attempt to boost ratings? (Jon & Kate Plus 8 seemed to attempt anything to keep the attention on them to keep their show afloat.)

  • dstatton

    O’Reilly is a thin-skinned, obnoxious bully, but I never have doubted his smarts.

  • surfergirl70

    Oh, for the love of all that is holy, please Sarah and Donald, run for president!

    • Eg Kbbs

      As much as I agree with you and would love to see the circus….

      If they run, there is always the slim possibility that they could win. And then where would the country be ?

      • surfergirl70

        I feel pretty comfortable in my assumption that the American people would never elect Trump or Palin for president. I honestly don’t think there’s *any* possibility they could win.

    O’Reilly says: “If no offense is intended, don’t take offense, and your life will be happier.”

    This from the clown who wets his pants if someone declares war on Christmas by wishing him “happy holidays.”
