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.”
