Fox News Contributor Tells Bill O'Reilly She's Tired Of His 'Mocking' Comments

Posted: Updated:

Fox News contributor Kirsten Powers told Bill O'Reilly on Tuesday that she's had enough of his dismissive comments about liberals.

The comments came when Powers and O'Reilly debated immigration on his Fox News show. Powers pointed out that contrary to what O'Reilly suggested, manual labor jobs don't require higher education, and argued that many Irish people who immigrated to the country in the 1800s would have been on welfare if it had existed back then.

"You don't seem to really know what you're talking about," O'Reilly said in response. Powers wasn't having it.

“I am so tired of this with you," she told O'Reilly. "I’m so tired of your mocking — mocking liberals because they care about people, that there’s something self-righteous about wanting to take care of children. You know, I thought this was a Christian thing, Bill.”

"We advertise to the world, give us your hungry, your poor, your tired," she continued. "But no, not according to Bill O'Reilly. According to Bill O'Reilly, let's bundle up the children and send them back."

O'Reilly accused her wanting an "open border," and Powers alleged that he was continuing to "misrepresent" her views and the views of other liberals.
