These days Fox News is practically begging for advertising on The O’Reilly Factor, especially since they just spent 13 million dollars to settle Bill O’ Reilly’s sexual harassment lawsuits.
Trump jumped to O’Reilly’s defense saying:
“He’s a good person… I know Bill. Bill’s a good person… I don’t think Bill would do anything wrong.”
Over 60 advertisers have abandoned the O’Reilly Factor. No one wants to take up ad space, which is why John Oliver offered to buy space with this priceless ad in hopes that Trump would see it. Since the President desperately needs an education on sexual harassment and the workplace, he thought there was nothing more appropriate than airing it on Fox News where he gets much of his information.
“We have produced an ad to educate Donald Trump to air during The O’Reilly Factor in New York and D.C. We submitted it to stations on Friday, but weirdly, we haven’t heard back from them since—which is a little surprising, because we are one of the only advertisers offering to buy time on his show at the moment.
To recap this story for you: Bill O’Reilly needs advertisers and Donald Trump needs to understand sexual harassment. And here is where we come in.”
“I don’t like pain when I cath and repeated unwanted sexual advances or obscene remarks in the workplace constitutes sexual harassment. If there’s a power disparity between the two parties, well, that’s about as inappropriate as lubricating a catheter with hot sauce, partner.”
“And if you’ve got a friend who was accused of something like that over and over again, I might think twice about defending him, because that just contributes to a culture where women don’t want to come forward. And I know you might not care about that. But on some level you’ve gotta know, you’re blowing this. You’re sacrificing the chance to make society a better place on the altar of your tower and ignorance and fragile ego.”
John Oliver, would you consider running for office in 2020?
