O’Reilly argues “Trump’s failure to tamp down the angry protestors…has destroyed his legacy”

In a new post on his website, former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly is highly critical of Trump’s reaction to the storming of the U.S. Capitol.

“Mr. Trump’s failure to tamp down the angry protestors supporting him in Washington has destroyed his legacy,” O’Reilly writes.

“The Trump-haters are screaming that he “encouraged” the violence but I believe that’s false. The President is an opportunist and smart enough to understand that a calculated violent attack on Congress in his name would destroy him,” O’Reilly continues. “Because of his bitterness over the election and the unprecedented press mistreatment he’s received, the President has lost all perspective and personal discipline.”

“Not an excuse, just accurate analysis.  I know the man,” O’Reilly adds.

He concludes by pleading to Biden “and so our divided nation turns to you, Joe Biden. Defuse it. As best you can.”
