O’Reilly: Nurse Defying Quarantine ‘Should Be Taken Into Custody’

Bill O’Reilly tonight took on Kaci Hickox, the Maine nurse who has been publicly fighting her quarantine after returning from Africa helping Ebola patients. O’Reilly said if she really wants to defy her quarantine, “she should be taken into custody.”

Hickox is fighting her state-mandated quarantine in Maine because she doesn’t believe it’s just or based in science. She was also quarantined in New Jersey and might sue Chris Christie for keeping her isolated for several days. But O’Reilly thinks whatever public health officials say goes.

And then he went on to say “she should be taken into custody,” but doubted that she would be because of the government’s lack of a coherent, clear Ebola policy (of which he went after President Obama on for a bit, as an example of his lacking leadership).
