Bill O'Reilly Talks Smack About Maxine Waters' 'James Brown Hair'

Your Fox News eyeroll of the day....

Pathetic excuse for a human being Bill O'Reilly joined the other idiots at Fox and Friends and made a racist mess of comments about Congresswoman Maxine Waters. Transcript via Media Matters:

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.

OREILLY: 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.

There's a lot about Bill O'Reilly we can't "get by" either. He's a colossal white supremacist a-hole is only the first thing.

He's on Fox and Friends to pimp his latest stupid book. Not in a million years, BillO. Not in a million years.

UPDATE: According to Media Matters, he put out an apology for what he said, and then immediately tweeted this:

He doesn't seem very regretful, does he?
