Media Matters has the transcript of Bill O’Reilly’s racist assholery on Fox & Friends this morning:
BILL O’REILLY: I didn’t hear a word [Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA)] said. I was looking at the James Brown wig. If we have a picture of James, it’s the same wig.
STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): It’s the same one.
BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): And he’s not using it anymore. They just — they finally buried him.
AINSLEY EARHARDT (CO-HOST): No. OK, I’ve got to defend her on that. I have to defend her on that. She a — you can’t go after a woman’s looks. I think she’s very attractive.
O’REILLY: I didn’t say she wasn’t attractive.
EARHARDT: Her hair is pretty.
O’REILLY: I love James Brown, but it’s the same hair, James Brown — alright, the godfather of soul — had.
EARHARDT: So he had girl hair.
O’REILLY: Whatever it is, I just couldn’t get by it.
