During a tense exchange on Friday’s “The O’Reilly Factor,” Geraldo Rivera accused Bill O’Reilly of stripping President Barack Obama of his “majesty” during his highly-watched Super Bowl interview.
Rivera said the president wasn’t given the respect he deserves and as a result the interview came off as the “President of Most of the White Guys of America,” O’Reilly, versus the president of “almost everyone else.” He also criticized the TV host for referring to Obama as a “community organizer.”
“It’s not my job to be a social scientist or please you, Geraldo Rivera, who’s looking more like a cartel member every day,” O’Reilly joked. “My job is to get information. That’s my job. I got it. And I asked him the tough questions that nobody else — no one — has asked him.”
“What you did was strip him of his majesty, so to speak,” Rivera replied.
“I don’t think he has majesty! He’s not a king!” O’Reilly said, adding that he respects the office of the presidency but presidents still need to be held accountable.
