Colbert Hits Bill O’Reilly Below The Belt: He’s a ‘Scrotum Who Wished To Be a Real Boy’

On Monday night, Stephen Colbert ripped Bill O’Reilly, or as he referred to him, a “scrotum who wished to be a real boy.”

He ridiculed the disgraced cable news giant for the $32 million sexual harassment settlement to former Fox News legal analyst Lis Wiehl, who he pointed out was a regular on The O’Reilly Factor in a segment called “Is it Legal?”

“And the answer for $32 million… No, it is not,” Colbert quipped. “Thanks for playing, security will see you out.”

The Late Show host expressed shock when he heard that Fox News offered O’Reilly a four-year extension that $25 million a year.

“He got a $25 million payout?!?” Colbert exclaimed. “What did Bill O’Reilly do… to Bill O’Reilly?”

Colbert then suggested that Fox News was just “trying to protect their female employees” because if he’s on camera, “that means that’s one hour a day they knew he’s not groping somebody.”
