Bill O’Reilly: ‘For Once in My Life, I’m Going to Keep My Big Mouth Shut’

In an interview this morning on NBC’s Today, Fox News host Bill O’Reilly declined to offer his thoughts on the sexual harassment charges against his former boss Roger Ailes. “I work for this company, and I don’t really have any insight into anything, so for once in my life, I’m going to keep my big mouth shut,” O’Reilly said.

O’Reilly said since Ailes’ departure, nothing has changed at Fox News. “We do exactly the same thing, if you watch the Factor every night, there’s been no change. We do what we do.”

As for Ailes, O’Reilly said “It’s a very sad situation for everyone involved … Roger Ailes was very good to me, and I feel very bad for his family.”

In an interview that covered Colin Kaepernick, Hillary Clinton’s health and a line from a recent Clinton speech that has become a Trump campaign commercial. “I was so angry—that I didn’t think up the line, ‘basket of deplorables.’ I love that line!” O’Reilly said.
