Bill O'Reilly went after Sarah Palin this week for, well, going after him.
O'Reilly initially took a dig at Palin, Donald Trump and Chris Christie in a tease for "The O'Reilly Factor" Tuesday night, speaking of the trio's possible participation in the 2016 Republican primary. "Wow," he said. "Talk about a reality show.”
Palin was not pleased, and made that known the same night while chatting with Fox News' Sean Hannity.
"He says, 'Oh, what a reality show that would be, yuck, yuck,'" the former Alaska governor and 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate said. "Well the left doesn't do that. They take this serious, because this is war."
O'Reilly wasn't going to take that lying down, so on Wednesday night he pointed out that Trump and Palin have both appeared on reality shows: "The Celebrity Apprentice" and "Sarah Palin's Alaska," respectively.
"Ms. Palin and Donald Trump are very high profile folks, and both have starred in reality TV shows," he said. "That’s my tease. It was perfectly in context and harmless ... if no offense is intended, don’t take offense.”
