Former Fox News anchor Bill O’Reilly is using the social media outlet Twitter more to reach his fans, and Wednesday he used it to weigh in on the testimony released by former FBI Director James Comey.
“USA will become more divided after Comey testifies,” he posted before the statement was released. “Anti-Trump media will whip the story into a hysterical exposition, ride it for weeks.”
O’Reilly expanded on what he meant on his website, adding, “the USA is a divided nation which will become more divided tomorrow when James Comey testifies in front of a senate committee. The former FBI director, recently fired by President Trump, is expected to criticize the President.”
“But no matter what Comey says,” he continued, “the anti-Trump media will whip the story up into a hysterical exposition and ride it for weeks. Donald Trump will get hammered no matter what happens at the hearing.”
After the prepared statement was released, O’Reilly declared his prediction had come true already. “As predicted, TV coverage of the pre-Comey testimony is hysterical,” he posted. “Here’s one simple fact: A sitting President has absolute authority to ask about any investigation as long as the Prez does not interfere in fact gathering process.”
