RTN| Fox News host Bill O’Reilly has been a frequent guest on the liberal ABC talk show The View, most famously when he caused Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg to walk off the show in 2011 because he said that “Muslims killed us on 9/11!” Now, however, O’Reilly has promised that he will never appear on The View again after Joy Behar questioned the mental stability of Donald Trump.
During her show on Wednesday, Behar claimed Trump is not “right in the head” and said he “has never appeared stable.”
“It’s not that I don’t agree with him,” Behar said, according to IJ Review. “He isn’t right in the head. The first time I met President Obama, on this show, I said the one thing you say about this man and his wife is that they’re ‘mentally stable.’ Donald Trump has never appeared stable when he’s come on the show.”
Afterwards, O’Reilly told Fox News host Martha MacCallum that he will never appear on the ABC show again.
“I’m never going on ‘The View’ again, OK? Here’s why. Roll tape,” O’Reilly said. “OK, so there’s Behar saying that the president elect is not right in the head. Enough, alright? That’s ABC News, by the way. These aren’t some clowns running around the entertainment division. This is ABC News. That’s a disgrace. Now, the ratings for that program are down fairly significantly.”
MacCallum explained that The View had moved from ABC’s entertainment division to their news division.
“As you rightly point out, they moved them from entertainment to the news division because they thought the comparison would be more favorable in the ratings, but they lost about 300,000 viewers over the course of that time,” she said.
