Fox News host Bill O'Reilly unleashed on Democratic presidential candidates Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton on Monday night, saying that Sanders has "no chance" of becoming president and accusing Clinton of injecting racism into Sunday night's debate.
"Senator Sanders has no chance," O'Reilly said. "America will never vote for a socialist as commander-in-chief."
The Fox News host went on to say that the media love to mock Donald Trump for the "dubious things he says," but that "Sanders makes Trump look like Abraham Lincoln."

O'Reilly went on to list Sanders' goals, including destroying Wall Street and big banks, instituting government-run healthcare, offering free tuition and mandatory leave for parents and the like.
"The list of Sanders' freebies is endless," he contended. "If Bernie Sanders were ever elected president, the economy would collapse."
As for Clinton, O'Reilly said that the most surprising thing that he saw her do during Sunday night's debate was "inject racism" into the discussion by citing what he said are incorrect statistics about black and white incarceration rates.
He also said that Clinton and Sanders, alike, were "amazingly vague" when it came to addressing how they would battle the Islamic State.
"Much of what the candidates said is unrealistic," O'Reilly said, decrying Sanders' "crazy-left vision."
