Bill O’Reilly lost his patience with guest Kirsten Powers on Tuesday while accusing both her and liberals of unfairly painting the US as a racist country.
“I have to wonder why you can’t see what’s happening, because most Americans are not racist,” the Factor host told her. “They’re not.”
“So how many black friends do you have?” Powers asked. “How many black friends do you have?”
O’Reilly’s hand could be heard slapping the desk before he said, “If you think most Americans are racist, I’m ashamed of you. I’m ashamed of you.”
“I’m asking you a serious question,” Powers said. “I didn’t say most Americans were racist.”
“You just said it,” he shot back.
