Stephen Colbert Tears Apart Bill O'Reilly's Anti-Equality Theory

Posted: Updated:

Some of the most poignant criticisms of Fox News happen to come from Stephen Colbert vehemently defending Bill "Papa Bear" O'Reilly.

On Thursday night's "Colbert Report," Stephen backed up O'Reilly's "airtight" logic that America is in decline because President Obama is too focused on "equality."

"I will never have equality with my fellow Irishman Shaquille O'Neal he is bigger and stronger than I am by nature... Each human being is born with abilities. But they are not equal abilities," O'Reilly said.

Of course, Colbert "agreed" that trying to achieve equality is unnatural, and provided even more examples of people and things that can outperform O'Reilly. He even backed up his Shaq theory:

"Shaquille O’Neal is taller than Bill O’Reilly, therefore the richest 1 percent of Americans should control 40 percent of the nation’s wealth."

Watch the clip above to hear Colbert's full takedown of O'Reilly's logic.
