O’Reilly Thinks Michael Sam’s ‘Gay Thing’ Is Too Overplayed and Annoying

Bill O’Reilly returned from a week-long vacation Monday night and spent the opening segment of his Fox News show reviewing some of the stories he missed while he was away. He touched on Benghazi, the IRS and Boko Haram, but saved the best for last. At the very end of his “Talking Points Memo,” O’Reilly shared his thoughts on the “social situation” regarding the kiss Michael Sam shared with his partner on live TV after learning he had been drafted by the St. Louis Rams.


According to O’Reilly, “gay football player” Michael Sam took some heat on Twitter from pro-players who “objected to the dog and pony show,” who were “immediately trashed.”

“Let Mr. Sam play football. If he makes the Rams, great,” O’Reilly declared. “But the gay thing? Way overplayed. It’s annoying. It really is.”
