Blowhard Bill O’Reilly being lectured by the Liar in Chief:
‘NOT EVEN A SMIDGEN OF CORRUPTION’: IT’S OBAMA VERSUS O’REILLY DURING INTERVIEW THAT GOT DOWNRIGHT CONTENTIOUS AT TIMES
Initially saying that the Benghazi attacks were “not some systematic well-organized process,” Obama defended himself as O’Reilly posed questions about why administration officials initially described the attacks at the compound in Libya as a spontaneous mob protest of an anti-Islamic, American-made video.
“Your detractors believe that you did not tell the world it was a terror attack because your campaign didn’t want that out,” O’Reilly said. “That’s what they believe.”
“And they believe it because folks like you are telling them that,” Obama countered, then adding that such a claim is “inaccurate” and “the notion that we would hide the ball for political purposes when a week later we all said in fact there was a terrorist attack taking place.”
“That wouldn’t be a very good cover-up,” Obama said.
As for the IRS scandal, Obama insisted there was “not even a smidgen of corruption” contributing to the IRS targeting of tea party and other conservative groups when they applied for tax-exempt status.
“These kinds of things keep on surfacing, in part because you and your TV station will promote them,” Obama said, taking aim at Fox News.
Another portion of the interview will air on The O’Reilly Factor Monday night, Mediaite noted.
