Fox News Host Bill O’Reilly Snickers Through Fake Apology To “Extremist” Rep. Maxine Waters [VIDEO]

The Huffington Post reports:

Fox News host Bill O’Reilly apologized Tuesday night for making a racist, sexist crack about Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) earlier in the day. But while apologizing, the “O’Reilly Factor” host snickered. O’Reilly said Waters is “totally sincere in her belief system” and “should not be marginalized by political opponents.”

He said: “I made that mistake this morning on ‘Fox & Friends.’ I said in a simple jest that the congresswoman’s hair distracted me. Well, that was stupid. I apologize. It had no place in the conversation.”

However, O’Reilly snickered in the middle of the apology. O’Reilly then delivered a lecture accusing Waters of “demagoguery,” questioning her patriotism and calling on her and others on the left to “stop the ideological nonsense and really focus on what America offers.”
