Political commentator Bill O’Reilly officially has his foot in his mouth after his appearance on Fox New’s morning show, “Fox & Friends.” “The O’Reilly Factor” host and the morning show hosts were discussing Maxine Waters’ recent comments about President Trump.
When asked about her comments O’Reilly said that he didn’t know what she said because he couldn’t get past “her James Brown hair.” He said that he respected her and her work, but the damage was already done.
Although the Calif. Congresswoman hasn’t spoken out yet, Twitter had no problem dragging him until he apologized. “As I have said many times, I respect Congresswoman Maxine Waters for being sincere in her beliefs. I said that again today on Fox & Friends calling her ‘old school.’ Unfortunately, I also made a jest about her hair which was dumb. I apologize.”
He then deleted that apology and promised his viewers a segment on “PC madness.”
