A discussion between Fox News host Bill O'Reilly and FNC political analyst Charles Krauthammer became heated during Tuesday's "The O'Reilly Factor" after Krauthammer continually disagreed with O'Reilly — something the host does not care for.
The duo were discussing the Hollywood celebrities who have vowed not to perform at any of President-elect Donald Trump's inauguration events later this month. O'Reilly, in his show's opening monologue, alleged that America is witnessing "reverse McCarthyism" in the entertainment industry over big-name musicians refusing to associate themselves with Trump.
The list of big-name musicians who have said "no" to performing at Trump inauguration events is quite long. Some of the more notable musicians include: KISS, Celine Dion, Elton John, Garth Brooks, Beyonce, Ice T, Bruce Springsteen, Jennifer Lopez, Katy Perry, Lady GaGa and Bon Jovi, among others.
"The harsh truth is that there is reverse McCarthyism going on in the entertainment industry," O'Reilly commented.
O'Reilly said entertainers are disassociating themselves with the president-elect because they think any association with Trump will hurt their careers. Krauthammer, however, strongly disagreed with that line of thinking and told O'Reilly that he has presented "no evidence" to back his claims.
Instead, Krauthammer said that Hollywood is "more than 100 percent liberal" and refused to perform at Trump events for their own "political reasons."
"They don't want to play for Donald Trump," Krauthammer told O'Reilly calmly as the FNC host continued to yell in disbelief that someone would dare challenge his line of thinking.
"This is a republic. You are not summoned to perform for the king," Krauthammer added.
"You don't know anything about Hollywood," O'Reilly countered. "They would perform for Joseph Stalin if they thought it would help their career."
