Trump: O'Reilly 'a good person' who shouldn't have settled sexual harassment claims

Trump: O'Reilly a good guy President Trump praised Bill O'Reilly in a new interview amid reports of payoffs to five women who accused the Fox News host of sexual harassment or inappropriate conduct.

“I think he’s a person I know well — he is a good person,” Trump told The New York Times.

“I think he shouldn’t have settled; personally I think he shouldn’t have settled,” the president continued. “Because you should have taken it all the way. I don’t think Bill did anything wrong.”

TVNL Comment:  Birds of a feather, folks.  How shameful is this?  Geez.
