The REAL O'Reilly Speaks Out
Long a supporter of amnesty

Coulter jabs Bill O'Reilly: 'Good God, he's stupid'
Conservative firebrand rips Fox News host on 14th Amendment
    Call it a looming clash of the titans, but conservative author, attorney and all-around firebrand Ann Coulter hit back hard at Bill O'Reilly's characterization of the 14th Amendment, calling out “The O'Reilly Factor” Fox News star as “stupid” in a couple of tweets that followed his interview with Donald Trump.
   Trump, in an interview with O'Reilly, insisted his platform of dumping the “anchor baby” provision from U.S. immigration policy would in fact prove both legal and viable. “Anchor baby” is a term used to describe the children of people who enter the country illegally with the purpose of having a son or daughter who would then be granted American citizenship.
    O'Reilly, however, cited the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, and said otherwise. [...]
    But Trump held his ground on the citizenship issue.
    “Bill, I don't think that they have American citizenship,” he said. “And if you speak to some very, very good lawyers — and I know some would disagree, but many of them agree with me — you're going to find they do not have American citizenship. We have to start a process where we take back our country. Our country is going to hell.”
    That's where Coulter kicked in.
    In a tweet picked up by Mediaite, she wrote: “Just got off a plane and my email feed is exploding with denunciations of Bill O'Reilly for interview w/ @realDonaldTrump on ‘THE FACTOR.'”

The Real Spinmeister
    I have watched Bill O'Reilly off and on for sixteen years. There is no question in my mind that he favors amnesty for illegal aliens and he is for open borders. It is a challenge for him to promote his philosophy, knowing that his audience is on the other side of the issues. To keep his audience he makes it appear he is on their side --- except at really critical moments --- such as the issue over anchor babies --- when his true feelings come through.
