Bill O'Reilly has seemingly run out of options for blaming others after a series of sexual harassment allegations canned the former Fox News host. From accusers to the news media, the only logical scapegoat left would surely be his Almighty.
During a recent episode of his web series “No Spin News,” O’Reilly spoke candidly about his anger toward God for not protecting him, as more details surrounding allegations have surfaced, according to CNN.
"You know, am I mad at God? Yeah, I'm mad at him," O'Reilly said. "I wish I had more protection. I wish this stuff didn't happen. I can't explain it to you. Yeah, I'm mad at him."
He also admitted people have it “much rougher” than him and that he’s a “bigmouth.”
The New York Times reported Saturday that O’Reilly paid $32 million to settle accusations with former Fox News contributor Lis Wiehl. Six other agreements have been made by either O’reilly or the network on his behalf.
With this latest rant under his belt, his New York Times bestseller Killing Jesus: A History is beginning to look more like a manifesto.

After four months into his presidency, Trump has only filled five top positions out of 53 at the Pentagon, "the slowest pace for nominations and confirmations in over half a century" according to Daily Kos. And 449 other key positions that need to be confirmed by the Senate don't even have a nominee yet. And yet, Trump is blaming these unfilled positions on the Democrats.
The foggy Trump seems to forget that most positions don't yet have nominees, and even if they did, Democrats don't control Congress. According to Daily Kos, there are two actual reasons why Trump is so slow in filling these positions.
One: Trump is demanding a loyalty test that discards anyone who ever said anything about Trump, which excludes most everyone, Republicans included. Two: people are simply scared to work for Trump.
Donald Trump refuses to consider anyone who ever said something bad about Donald Trump. Which pretty well explains what is taking so long. They’re flipping over rocks as fast as they can.
In the meantime:
The gaps in Trump’s regime include many national security posts, and the void in the Pentagon represents a threat to national security that’s much more serious than Trump’s ludicrous travel ban.
