Rand Paul appeared on MSNBC yesterday to discuss judicial reform. Bill O’Reilly‘s reaction to that tonight was to make it about himself and wonder why the Republican senator would grace a liberal network with his presence but won’t come on The Factor.
Bernard Goldberg told O’Reilly Paul is making a play for people who don’t normally vote for Republicans. He went to Berkeley and got a warm reception, then he went to MSNBC (“which is the TV version of Berkeley”) to talk about an issue liberals would back him for supporting. It’s his way, Goldberg explained, of showing the liberal base he’s not one of those “neanderthals” in the GOP.
But as for why Paul won’t come on The Factor, Goldberg predicted it will happen in the future, but for now, “he doesn’t want to be seen with the face of Fox News.” O’Reilly had another theory: “He doesn’t want to answer the foreign policy question.”
