O’Reilly Dismisses Trump KKK Controversy as ‘Complete Non-Story’

billBill O’Reilly briefly weighed in on the Donald Trump KKK controversy and dismissed it out of hand.

O’Reilly first warned that if Trump is the GOP nominee, “we can expect a media assault on him that will be unprecedented.” He did note that Trump is ready for it, bringing up The Donald’s comments about loosening libel laws to go after the media.

He then pivoted to the controversy over Trump’s refusal yesterday to disavow support from Duke. O’Reilly called it a “complete non-story” because he’s spoken to Trump hundreds of times and he’s “never run down anyone because of race.”

O’Reilly added, “He doesn’t care about that.”
