Today was a tough day for black women in America. It was so bad that even a certain former presidential candidate had to weigh in.
First, Bill O’Reilly tried to diss a sitting congresswoman from California by comparing her wig to the iconic coif of the “hardest working man in show business”. Needless to say that black folks did not feel good about it.
“O’Reilly was asked for his thoughts on Waters’ comments. He instead discussed her appearance.
“I didn’t hear a word she said. I was looking at the James Brown wig,” he said, referencing the late soul singer.
While two of the Fox & Friends cohosts joined in on O’Reilly’s comments, Ainsley Earnhardt cut in to say she had to defend Waters.
“You can’t go after a woman’s looks,” she said. “I think she’s very attractive.”
O’Reilly replied, “I didn’t say she wasn’t attractive… I love James Brown, but it’s the same hair.”
He later went on to invite Waters, who has been in Congress since 1991, on his own show.” [Source]
How is this for irony? Bill O’Reilly is a big supporter of Donald trump, and he is making fun of this woman’s wig. Seriously?
He has been getting a lot of heat so he apologized later today. I honestly don’t even know why he bothered. The “alleged” wife beater has a long history of saying racist and derogatory things towards blacks.
This might explain why he is so popular with the FOX VIEWS crowd.
“As I have said many times, I respect Congresswoman Maxine Waters for being sincere in her beliefs,” he said. “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.”
Don’t apologize Bill, you said exactly what you wanted to say, and you thought it was funny, as did millions of your fans.
Then there was April Ryan, who asked one too many questions of one Sean Spicer today, and it caused him to finally let his true feelings for the “uppity” black reporter, show.
“I’m sorry that disgusts you. You’re shaking your head,” he said.
As she protested, Spicer said, “I’m sorry, please stop shaking your head again.” ‘
To quote Ryan herself: “Lawd!!”
Sadly, these folks are becoming a bit unhinged. I suspect that Sean will let the n- word slip before this thing is over.
“I’ve been here for 20 years, since 1997, the second term of Bill Clinton,” Ryan told MSNBC’s Katy Tur afterwards. “We’ve never seen anything like this before. And my question was simple. How do you change the perception problem basically? I don’t know verbatim what I said, but that was the impetus and the crux of my question. And it went off into this Russian dressing, no shaking my head or whatever.”
Oh no my sister, you are “roadkill” every day. You need to remember that fact when you are standing in the way of those republican men.
