Barney Frank Recalls Shouting Matches with ‘Abusive and Inaccurate’ O’Reilly

Whenever Bill O’Reilly and Barney Frank are on TV together, you know it won’t be a boring time. And Frank talked a little bit about that on HuffPost Live today.

Alyona Minkovski brought up the controversy O’Reilly’s in over allegedly exaggerating news events he covered and asked, “Are you enjoying it a little bit?” Frank said he is, but noted that he’s not terribly surprised by it.

He liked that O’Reilly is “having his hypocrisy exposed,” calling him a “right-wing mouthpiece” and a “bully” who “starts being abusive and inaccurate” when he has a guest on he doesn’t like.

Frank said between shouting back at him and looking just as angry, and just letting O’Reilly walk all over him, he chose “boorishness.”
