Stephen Colbert Destroys Bill O’Reilly for His Comments About the Cons of Having a Female President

Posted on Mar 6, 2014

Bill O’Reilly put his foot so far down his throat with misogynistic statements that not even other Fox News commentators could agree with him. In a segment in which the conservative pundit tried to come up with all the reasons why a woman wouldn’t be able to perform as president as well as a man (for example, Muslim officials would have no respect for a woman, and, as “The Colbert Report” host noted, as the “leaders of the free world ... we need to elect someone Iran would approve of”), O’Reilly babbled his way into embarrassment.

Graciously, Stephen Colbert was around to finish his sentence with a laugh-out-loud commentary on “The O’Reilly Factor” host’s idiotic “bing, bing, bing” claims.
