Bill O’Reilly on Gretchen Carlson Lawsuit: ‘I Think It’s a Very Sad Situation’

By Chris Ariens 

On Late Night with Seth Meyers, Bill O’Reilly made his first public comments on the Gretchen Carlson sexual harassment lawsuit against Roger Ailes.

“I’ve worked for Roger Ailes for 20 years. Best boss I’ve ever had. Straight shooter, always honest with me. And I believe that 95 percent of the people who have worked for Roger Ailes would say exactly the same thing,” O’Reilly told Meyers. “In this country, every famous, powerful, or wealthy person is a target. You’re a target. I’m a target.”

“I stand behind Roger 100 percent,” O’Reilly added.
