On his Fox News Channel show Monday, host Bill O’Reilly went after President Barack Obama for equivocating on his opinion of Occupy Wall Street and some of the movement’s more controversial antics.
O’Reilly, calling in from a cable convention in Boston, told fill-in host Laura Ingraham that it’s time for the president to weigh in on the occupiers after dodging the question in a press conference from the NATO summit in Chicago on Monday.
“The president should be answering the question: Do you still support the Occupy Wall Street movement, because in the beginning he did,” O’Reilly said. “So now, and we’ll get to this in a moment, when he is asked about the protesters he gives an answer that doesn’t say one way or the other whether he approves of this kind of thing.”
O’Reilly teased his Tuesday program, explaining he would be featuring a segment that tied the Service Employees International Union to the Occupy protests. But then he shared an incident from Friday night on Broadway in New York City.
