The Nightly Show Piles on ‘Condescending Asshole’ O’Reilly for Slavery Remarks

Last night’s Nightly Show devoted a whole segment to ripping Bill O’Reilly for his controversial remarks about the slaves that built the White House.

Larry Wilmore swiped at him for trying t “Foxplain” slavery before contributor Franchesca Ramsey went after the Twitter trolls outraged about Michelle Obama daring to remind people about slave labor.

In response to one tweeter who angrily complained that it was built by carpenters, not slaves, Ramsey explained that some of the slaves were, in fact, carpenters, “just like how Bill O’Reilly can be both a TV personality and a condescending asshole.”

The show was taped last night before O’Reilly aired his rebuttal to the critics, in which he told the “smear merchants” he was not justifying slavery at all.
