Bill O'Reilly Rips Chris Matthews For Ted Cruz "Black Irish" Comment

by at . Comments

Bill O'Reilly ripped both Chris Matthews and MSNBC on Thursday after Matthews dubiously remarked that Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) has a "black Irish look."

Matthews used the term, which refers to Irish people with dark features, while railing against Cruz ... and Pat Buchanan, Joseph McCarthy and O'Reilly.

He said they all look alike. O'Reilly was not happy.

"In addition to being misguided politically, Mr. Matthews also apparently needs glasses, badly," O'Reilly said, calling it a "desperate attempt to get attention."

The reason, O'Reilly said, is MSNBC's ratings. "In the last six months, it’s all fallen apart for MSNBC," he alleged. "They’re in a desperate situation right now.”

O'Reilly said that the network was previously a "campaign headquarters for the president," but "that's vanishing now" due to Obama administration scandals.

Revelations about NSA surveillance programs, DOJ investigations of journalists and IRS' targeting of conservative groups have roiled the White House.

MSNBC is "covering anything other than that, because they don't know what to say," O'Reilly claimed on Thursday, with no small measure of glee.

MSNBC delivered woeful ratings in May, landing in fourth place behind Fox News, CNN and HLN, which saw a spike from the Jodi Arias murder trial.

The network saw its lowest primetime numbers since 2009.

Milli vanilli- Vanilla Ice- that's who Chris Matthews is. He-just like his disgrace of a Slander Network has run its course. No one is listening anymore. Quit dying your hair blonde- you freaking look ridiculous ! MSNBC must pay employees by the word. He rambles on 300 words a minute spewing crap that nobody understands. Rachel Madcow- you would have to be on Crystal Meth to even know what this "ButchBitch" is talking about and WTF is that on her neck? Can't Obamacare get that mole the size of a quarter removed. Al Sharpton- there is nothing left of him but penis and eyeballs and I'm certain most of what's left is eyeballs. You would come closer to finding a white male Democratic mayor than viewers for this crap Network.
