Bill O’Reilly has asked ABC to fire Rosie O’Donnell’s ass from “The View” for the remarks she’s made about Iran and the war.
Rosie, who was not a guest on O’Reilly’s show, has been anything but gentle in expressing her feelings toward U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East, going so far as to suggest on her blog that the recent kidnapping of British sailors was designed by the U.S. and Britain to help escalate hostilities against Iran. On “The View” this week, Rosie also challenged viewers to Google “Gulf of Tonkin,” a reference to the controversial naval attacks in Southeast Asia that led to the U.S.’s increased involvement in the Vietnam conflict.
Now, O’Reilly is calling for ABC to be “held accountable” for Rosie’s remarks, especially after the network axed Bill Maher post-9/11 for suggesting that the terrorists who attacked the World Trade Center were “courageous.” ABC, for its part, had no comment this morning.
I don’t know anything about politics, so I can’t say if I agree with her views…but it’s her VIEW! I mean that’s the whole point of the damn show. Rosie sometimes needs to shove an eclair in her mouth, but I’m on her side with this one.
