Bill O'Reilly and his fratboy bro Gregg Gutfeld had a little fun bashing Will Ferrell and liberals in general on the Cranky Old Liar's show.

Fox News host Bill O’Reilly challenged comedian Will Ferrell on Tuesday to come on to his show for a political discussion, after Ferrell identified himself as a supporter of Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) presidential campaign.

“He’s a talented guy,” O’Reilly said. “But he’s like George Clooney — he crosses into these realms and you look at them and you think, ‘What do you know about it?'”

I'm betting Ferrell knows more than O'Reilly does about things like telling the truth, or even being able to identify a fact.

BillO seems a bit hurt that celebrities are gathering behind Bernie Sanders for some reason.

O’Reilly’s frustration, which first manifested itself during an appearance on Fox & Friends earlier in the day, stemmed from the Anchorman star being part of a group of 128 celebrities confirmed as Sanders supporters by the senator’s staff.

“The great thing about being rich is, you can embrace practices that kill the poor,” guest Greg Gutfeld said. “That’s what socialism does.”

“Yes it does,” O’Reilly agreed. “And I would explain that to Will in a very gentle way.”

There's an example of O'Reilly's debating prowess right there. I can imagine the "Will, you ignorant slut," line just before he gently explained that helping people eat and get healthcare kills them every single time

They then moved to the old trope about unicorns and rainbows.

Gutfeld also attributed the support to “stunted intellectual growth.”

“When you get famous and rich when you’re young, what happens is you start feeling insecure: ‘People only like me because I pretend,'” he argued. “To [celebrities], this is like a cool hobby. It’s like nude pilates.”

Well, in Gutfeld's case that worry about not deserving what they get is likely to be true. After all, Fox News is the leading supplier of wingnut welfare.
