O’Reilly: New York Mayor de Blasio ‘should resign’

A vacationing Bill OReilly called into his own Fox News show on Monday to blast New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio as a villain, as City Halls relationship with the New York City Police Department continues to deteriorate in the wake of Saturdays fatal shootings of two police officers. During the 6-minute rant, OReilly called for de Blasios immediate resignation.

He is an anti-police individual, OReilly said. Hes been anti-police his whole career. Whos his best friend? Its Al Sharpton — a racial provocateur, an anti-cop individual who is de Blasios best friend. That says it all.

Now de Blasio is actually proud that he told his teenage son he may face dangers when interacting with the NYPD, the Factor host continued. What kind of responsible father tells that to his son? Then after witnessing because it was on videotape two of his police lieutenants get beaten by a mob, the mayor of New York City says it was an alleged beating. That insulted every officer. All 35,000 NYPD were insulted. Allegedly? You saw it with your own eyes, you pinhead. That was the end. When he said that, he lost the police department.

OReilly, whose grandfather was a member of the NYPD, applauded the officers who turned their backs on the mayor outside the hospital where their fellow officers were pronounced dead.

Good for them. Good for them, OReilly said. This is an individual who should resign today. Today.


On Monday, de Blasio asked protesters to put their demonstrations on hold until the two officers are buried.

Its a time for everyone to put aside political debates, put aside protests, put aside all of the things we will talk about in due time, de Blasio said. Lets comfort these families, lets see them through these funerals. Then debate can begin again.

But OReilly said the mayors words fell on deaf ears.

Hes lost the control of the police department and their respect, OReilly said. They will never come back, no matter what he says, because he sided with the protesters. Thats what he did. And he associated with provocateurs and he has disgraced the office of the mayor of New York City. He should resign.

OReilly stopped short of saying de Blasio has blood on his hands, as Patrick Lynch, head of the Patrolmen's Benevolent Association, said Saturday.

The lone gunman, 28-year-old Ismaaiyl Brinsley, is the only one responsible for the deaths of the two police officers, OReilly said. No one else has blood on their hands."

But aiding and abetting Brinsley, O'Reilly said, were those protesters who yelled We want dead cops!" during the protests over the chokehold death of Eric Garner.

They should be shunned, OReilly said of the protesters. If you know them, never speak to them again. They aided this.
