'Jimmy Kimmel Live': Bill O'Reilly Admits His Interview With President Barack Obama Was Obnoxious

Bill O'Reilly dropped by "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and talked about his controversial Super Bowl Sunday interview with President Barack Obama. It was a ten-minute interview that has been pulled apart by the media in the days since. O'Reilly described it as the toughest interview of his life.

"I’ve never done anything more difficult, because you’re up against the clock from day one," he told Kimmel. "From second one. And President Obama can do 20 minutes on your socks. I mean, the guy is very eloquent.”

With only ten minutes to get through the interview, O'Reilly said he had to keep interrupting the President in order to get his questions in. He conceded that it was obnoxious, but that's just what he does.

The media has been all over the place with their analysis. Some called O'Reilly unprepared, while others thought he was rude to the President. And some thought he didn't take it far enough.

Bill Reilly can be seen on "The O'Reilly Factor," weeknights at 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. EST on Fox News. "Jimmy Kimmel Live" airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. EST on ABC.
