Donald Trump is having trouble getting famous musicians to perform at his inauguration and Bill O’Reilly thinks he knows why.
On Tuesday night, O’Reilly said that a “reverse McCarthyism going on in the entertainment industry” is intimidating right-leaning performers who might otherwise want to celebrate President Trump.
“If you are a Trump supporter, you are a bad person, and a number of entertainers believe their careers will be harmed, should they associate with the new Trump administration. Again, that is terrible, an awful state of affairs.”
The View’s Whoopi Goldberg caught wind of O’Reilly’s overblown analogy, and let him have it.
On Wednesday morning, Goldberg openly mocked O’Reilly’s suggestion that “Hollywood bullying” is keeping celebrities away from Trump’s inauguration. “If you don’t vote for people who don’t support you probably won’t get turned down as much,” she said. “I know that one of the people that supported Donald Trump was Ted Nugent. So, why isn’t Ted Nugent performing? He’s one of your big supporters.”
“When you’re talking about people coming to do the inauguration, which is what he’s talking about,” Goldberg said of O’Reilly, “and when you say it’s like McCarthyism, I have to yell B.S. It’s not!”
Watch and ENJOY!
