Tonight, speaking in front of a roomful of homeless vets, Edwards responded, "I heard that, last night, Bill O'Reilly, who's a talk show host, who's heard that I have said this about hundreds of thousands of veterans who don't have a place to live, and were homeless. And he challenged me about whether that's true or not, whether, in fact, we have that many veterans who don't have a place to live, and some of them are sleeping under bridges. Well, he ought to start by coming to Las Vegas, if he wants to know what's going on.
"America has the responsibility to do something about this. We do. And the fact that this talk show host, Bill O'Reilly, is willing to speak out that blatantly, when he has no idea what he's talking about, is an example of how America doesn't understand the problem, doesn't understand how serious this issue is."
