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

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.
