Bill O’Reilly Snaps, Defends Trump, Says Obama Is ‘Complicit’ In SF Woman’s Death (Video)

bill-oreillyWhile I wouldn’t call myself a regular viewer of Bill O’Reilly’s The Factor, I would say I’ve seen enough of it to generally know the context and tone of how the Fox News personality conducts himself. That being said, I think he’s reaching the point where he might be “losing it” just a bit. Over the last few months he just seems to be a bit more unhinged and volatile. Not that he’s ever been the most cordial of individuals, but there’s just something different about him.


It sort of reminds me of that person who’s just done something for so long they either bow out gracefully when they’re burned out (Jon Stewart) or they eventually just spiral into a shell of their former selves – and it’s usually never pretty to watch. That’s what I think is happening to O’Reilly.

Take for instance last night’s show where he absolutely snapped, accusing the mayor of San Francisco of being responsible for the death of Kate Steinle, who was allegedly shot and killed by illegal immigrant Francisco Sanchez.

Oh, and he also called the Obama administration “complicit” in her tragic death.

“Here’s the deal. Here’s the deal,” O’Reilly said. “The mayor and city supervisors of San Francisco are directly responsible for the murder of Kate Steinle, and the Obama administration is complicit.”

Now, what’s his “logic” for such a bold claim? Because San Francisco has very lax immigration laws where the city has claimed it won’t comply with federal laws pertaining to illegal immigrants, and apparently the Obama administration hasn’t done anything about it.

To be fair, I don’t agree with any city saying that they’re going to ignore federal laws on immigration. While I’m in full support of comprehensive immigration reform, I don’t think any local city, country or even state for that matter should have the right to ignore the federal laws we have in place for immigration.

O’Reilly then went on to defend Donald Trump, claiming that this is all about political correctness and the fear of being seen as anti-immigrant by taking action against San Francisco.

“Which is why Trump caught so much hell,” O’Reilly stated. “The Constitution demands that the federal government protect Americans from foreign intruders, demands it. Obviously, that responsibility’s not being met. And if you point that out, as Trump did, you’re a racist. A piñata for the open border crowd to bash. The fact that a felon could be deported five times and still be walking around San Francisco should shame Congress.”

First, people didn’t call Trump a racist for advocating for border security. They called him a racist because he called most Mexican immigrant criminals and rapists. There’s a huge difference between saying we need to secure our borders and going on multiple anti-Mexican tirades where you call them criminals and rapists.

But even beyond that, the alleged shooter had already been deported five times, so it’s not as if the federal government wasn’t enforcing our laws. No matter how “secure” you want to try to make the border, people are going to find ways in.


The logic Bill O’Reilly is using here is the exact same kind he often attacks when it comes to issues such as guns. I’m sure Mr. O’Reilly would strongly object to one using the Charleston shooter to blame the NRA and Republicans for the nine lives lost that night. After all, they’re the two groups who fiercely fight against any laws or regulations that seek to prevent mentally unstable individuals from obtaining guns.

But it does go to show you just how petty someone like Bill O’Reilly can be. To use the tragic death of a young woman just to try to defend a racist while attacking liberals and President Obama is low, even for him.

    The White House says that it was the GOP’s fault.Really?Step up deportations and build that wall.If it has to be electrified fence so be it.

    • mister_g43

      As the article stated, the guy WAS deported… five times! Simply sending a person back over the fence does not always solve the problem.

      • Thunder Panus

        Make the fence taller.Machine gun nests every mile or so.Drones armed with Hellfire missiles.

        You do know that reality isnt an action movie right?

      • OMGface

        You’d be surprised at how many unendowed humans are relegated to reducing all of life to that simplistic merda. Regard Donald Trump, one of the most naive simpletons of all time.

      • Mooski

        And saturate it with pressure detonated land mines too.

    Obama is complicit. He didn’t want this to happen but the San Francisco murder is the predictable but unintentional result of his immigration policies. While border patrol agents and their union complain about lax enforcement policies, criminal illegal aliens are let loose on our streets, the administration picks and chooses which laws to enforce, the DHS’s role is subverted from protecting this country from invasions to handing out working permits to economic invaders, and the president crows that he changed immigration law, such results are predictable. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Saldana called any federal bill to requiring sanctuary cities to comply with federal immigration law at the state and local level “counterproductive.” Letting someone cross the border five times indicates the federal government is not doing its job defending borders. We are lucky the murderer wasn’t making trips back and forth with IS making trips back and forth with backpack nukes.

    “The buck stops here” -President Truman

    Obama supporters would argue otherwise.

      The buck never stopped with Bush, that for sure. Take a look.

      • strayaway

        I didn’t know this was an article about Bush. Thanks for making my point.

      • PRIME79

        A) Obama has depoerted more people than any president before him.

        B) I didnt know this was an article about Truman.

        C) What was your point?

      • strayaway

        Obama has deported more people because he changed the definition of deportation to include turnarounds at the border that were previously not included. That was early in his administration. Recently, he has been doing almost everything possible to not remove illegal aliens. First, the government, under Obama, was going to leave most illegal aliens alone so it could go after illegal alien felons. More recently, reports have come out of large numbers of illegal alien felons being released on our streets.

        It wasn’t about Truman. He was just the president who made that remark so at odds with how the Obama administration operates. If I would have wanted it to be about Truman, I would have mentioned that according to FactCheck, “During his (Truman’s) nearly eight years in office, about 3.4 million were deported or left “voluntarily” under threat of deportation.” Considering there were fewer illegal aliens in the US then, that’s pretty good. My point was made in my first sentence.

        wnd conspiracy freak.

      • PRIME79

        Civility is the only way we win. Just saying.

      • strayaway

        tracey, do you have anything to say about the topic?

      • PRIME79

        Gotta be honest, I like you Strayaway. You put up insanely better arguments than the vast majority of right leaning folks I come across, especially on this site. I disagree all to be damned with you but you make the fight well worth it and I respect that. That said Im pretty drunk right now (doesn’t change what Ive said) so we will continue this later. And Id love to see how you perform on rawstory.com. Its hella liberal and you will be vastly out numbered but I think you can hold your on there and Id like to see it. You wont get banned either as long as you make the same style arguments that you make here. Holla at ya boy.

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

        It’s not about Truman either, but somehow he found his way into your rambling post. So since you were throwing other presidents in, I thought I would toss in Dumbya Bush for you to ponder with all of this time you have on your hands and since you seem to weakly imply that President Obama is complicit in murder somehow…..?? Do you try to be stupid, or does it come naturally to you?

      • strayaway

        You already lost your attempt at misdirection.Read the title. Repeat: This isn’t an article about Bush unless any of those unless any of those times this murderer invaded the US happened under Bush. Then Bush would be liable for failing to protect our borders too. You should thank me for giving you a little wiggle room.

    • tracey marie

      you sound like a teabagger

      • strayaway

        Teabagging is a liberal sexual practice. Do you have something you want to talk about?

      • OMGface

        Yep….another malleable, brainless simpleton

  • Flat Banana

    It is a problem that has been produced by the lackadaisical immigration policies from Obama.

    • Creeayshun Sighuntist

      how would you say they compare to Bush’s policies, or were you even alive when Bush was president….

      • Flat Banana

        Typical reply.

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

        no seriously, do you even know? I know the answer though….LOL

      • PRIME79

        Typical conservative reply. You can answer everything but you cant explain anything.

    • tracey marie

      specifically what policies

  • common sense

    The logic is impeccable. An illegal immigrant kills someone, therefore it is Obama’s fault. Or is it my fault because I voted for him? Or is it the border patrol people who didn’t catch the illegal coming across the border for the 6th time? Or is it all the citizens of San Francisco because they live there?
    I could go on, but this is ridiculous. Bill O should know better.

    • OMGface

      Good facetiousness. Except for the he should know better part. The man is a deeply unhappy, toxic, Faustian being and it will never change.
