Whoa. Bill O’Reilly was a guest on The View this morning, and he got REAL Bill O’Reilly up in there. Naturally, because it’s October, 2010, conversation turned to the Ground Zero Mosque. WAIT, WHAT? Is that really still a thing? Anyway, Bill O’Reilly does some classic Mr. Cool Moves, like, sticking his fingers in people’s faces and telling them to shut up and learn. Nice. What’s the deal with this guy? Does he know that he looks like a cigar? You know when you stay up way too late drinking too much and then get up way too early and you’re still kind of drunk and you have that taste in your mouth that’s like a little sweet in a gross way and very puckered and no matter how much water you drink or even brushing your tongue with toothpaste the sickly death taste won’t go away? You know that feeling. Does Bill O’Reilly know that he looks like that mouth taste? Also: let’s be real: the women of The View are retarded, and it’s mind-boggling that anyone, much less millions of anyones, give a shit about their opinions about anything ever, AND YET, it’s still THEIR TV SHOW, you condescending misogynist FUCK. You don’t point your fat beef finger in their face and tell them to shut up and learn. WHAT KIND OF GENTLEMAN ARE YOU?!

And then, eventually, in the great part, Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg get so fed up with this bag of ashes that they straight get up off the couch and walk off the show. Watch it, it’s great:


You know, it’s kind of belaboring the obvious, but I find it really gross how an ostensibly intelligent human being (even if he uses that intelligence for money-hungry evil) could make, with a straight-face, the argument that because a majority of Americans want a thing, that means the thing is morally correct. Like, it just doesn’t matter that 70% of Americans don’t want a mosque to be built in a FUCKING BURLINGTON COAT FACTORY, three blocks from the site of THE TRAGIC EVENTS. It doesn’t matter! It’s still morally correct for them to build it there. The end. There’s not even any gray area here. Man. Fuck. I just hate liars so much, you guys. Especially the ones who wear nice suits and put words together pretty well and then go ahead and say things (repeatedly) that you just know even THEY don’t BELIEVE. Yuck.

All of that being said, I wouldn’t mind terribly if Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar kept walking until they got to the ocean and then walked into the ocean and then The View was canceled. Bill O’Reilly being an impossible asshole and The View being total garbage are not mutually exclusive! (Via NYT.)

  1. I believe the term is, “You mad.”

  2. Dear Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberd,

    It is your show. You do not have to walk off. You can make him walk off. Grow some ovaries and take charge of your own show.

    Your biggest fan,

    Facetaco

  3. I can’t watch the clip because I break out in hives whenever I hear Bill O’Reilly’s voice.

  4. “Wait, you can just walk off during a television taping. File under ‘things that would have been good to know LAST NIGHT’!” — Christine O’Donnell

  5. Either the First Amendment exists or it doesn’t. Period.

  6. Gabe’s profile on OKcupid expressly states “NO LIARS.”

  7. “You know when you stay up way too late drinking too much and then get up way too early and you’re still kind of drunk and you have that taste in your mouth that’s like a little sweet in a gross way and very puckered and no matter how much water you drink or even brushing your tongue with toothpaste the sickly death taste won’t go away? You know that feeling. Does Bill O’Reilly know that he looks like that mouth taste?”

    This is comparison is perfection.

    • Also, after you’ve consumed barrels of water to get rid of the taste but it turns out you’re BADLY hungover and you vomit all the water into the kitchen sink (oops) and your left with that watery alcohol taste in your mouth? That’s Glen Beck, probably.

      • I want to upvote SO BADLY but I have a moral code preventing me from upvoting any misuse of your/you’re.

        And so, packing my bags for downvote city myself, I announce that other than that, what you said is genius.

    • Seriously. This post had me choke-laughing.

    • That description was so perfect I think I snorted milk out my nose and I wasn’t even drinking milk.

  8. “SHIT how do I one up these bitches when Olbermann comes?” – Elisabeth Hasselbeck

  9. Whoopi’s shoes and Sherri’s hair were the most interesting thing about this clip- but her Wilma Flintstone ‘do was missing the bone.

  10. I have spent the past few hours trying not to think about that taste in my mouth. Now, not only can I not stop thinking about it, I can’t stop equating it with Bill O’Reilly being in my mouth. Which is the WORST THOUGHT I’VE EVER HAD.

  11. Bill O’Reilly- even a bigger asshole than Mel Gibson apparently

  12. So what? Who cares?

  13. That’s my boyfriend!!!!!!

    I will never be clean again, after making that joke.

  14. They’re almost as mad as Gabe was when he had to go on The View…

  15. “If most Americans support a position, then it must be right.” –Chief Justice Roger Taney, Dred Scott v. Sanford

  16. Even Hasselbeck looked disgusted by O’Reilly. Or maybe she was just confused that they weren’t yelling at her. Must have felt left out =(

  17. That whole clip was actually taken word for word from my last family Thanksgiving.

  18. I for one would like Mans’ take on the ground zero mosque issue.

    • This was not a snarky reply to his comment above, I genuinely want to know, but I understand that he’s busy fighting crime and such.

      • Only if he’s a DA. If he’s a Public Defender, then no doubt he’s busy protecting criminals from justice.

        Either way, though, so busy!

        • I think that we all know what the right answer is.

          Also, I don’t fight crime. I fight greedy children, or at least help greedy children fight each other.

  19. I have to admit, I did take a break from being mildly outraged from this clip to yell out “TWSS” when Bill told Joy “I’ll show you that pole in a minute.”

  20. Ugh, don’t they (The View ladies) know that giving Bill O’Reilly that kind of attention only gives him power? Like a drunk sorority girl, Bill O’Reilly is shitfaced on his one Smirnoff Ice of power.

  21. since when does the 1st amendment get thrust into a debate about moral relativism? Bill “I’ll write it!” O’Reilly just wants to make all the rules for you.

  22. While I’m not saying I disagree, cool adult dialog Joy Behar!

  23. Also, you could have just not had Bill O’Reilly on in the first place. That might have been pretty cool, too. O’Reillys gonna O’Reilly.

    • O’Reilly is definitely gonna O’Reilly, which is exactly what makes the Stewart v. O’Reilly showdowns so compelling. For better or for worse, O’Reilly has a brain, and the only way to defeat it is by using another brain.

  24. Too much yelling for a morning show. Can we watch the clip of the miner rescue again?

  25. Speaking of things that are still “a thing”, is it suddenly okay to say “retarded” now? Not that I really care either way, but I’ve seen a sudden resurgence of its usage, and I thought we banished that from our vernacular.

    • You have to apply for approval from the Department of Sarah Palin before you are able to throw the word retarded around all willy nilly. Liberals need not apply

    • I mean, you can say anything you like, with the exception of yelling “Theater!” in a crowded fire. You are an Adult and can Make Choices. But you get to decide for yourself, is the image you want to project that of someone who acknowledges and supports the worth of every human being? Or of someone who thinks it’s hilarious to use an outdated term for a disabled person in order to belittle someone with whom you disagree?

      /sanctimoniousgum. ::settles in with coffee and imaginary cigarette, waits for downvotes::
      (Also I did not watch the clip because any of those three players mentioned are not people I want to spend my precious mental energy on. So maybe there is context here that I don’t understand.)

  26. Noise… its all just noise. We never get anywhere close to intelligently discussing anything in this country because of all the noise.

    • And also because of all the dumbasses.

      • Someone sent me a link to this clip on YouTube. It started playing automatically in a background tab, and when I tried to make it stop I accidentally scrolled down far enough to see the YouTube comments.

        Talk about noise and dumbasses.

  27. Wait, they’re leaving their own show? Why didn’t they just tell him to get the hell off *their* couch because he offended them?

    • Probably because all the View ladies would probably need to come to a “Boot O’Reilly Off” consensus, which would’ve just resulted in loud clucking for the remainder of the show. So Whoopi and Joy decided to leave, insinuating, “You can have him, ladies. We’ll be in our dressing rooms preening.”

      Seriously, I don’t think it would ever happen where one of them would say, “You’re out, O’Reilly!” and the rest go “Yeah!” Instead, one or two or however many of them would go “Now waitaminute, who put you in charge of decisions around here? Blah blah blah blah blah x infinite…”

  28. Say what you will, but at least O’Reilly has the guts to take a stand on such polarizing issues as:

    1. Being against terrorism
    2. Liking Christmas
    3. Thinking child rapists are bad
    4. Agreeing with folks

  29. Fuck it, we’ll do it live.

  30. I had that mouth taste this morning. GBV classic lineup show at the Riv last night. Totally worth it.

  31. Fuck it! We’ll do it live! WE’LL DO IT LIVE!!! Fuckin’ thing! it sucks!
    (God this guy needs a blow job)

  32. Wait…so you guys watch The View? I see…*jumps out window*

  33. Is it just me, or does it seem like Whoopi, Joy, and Bill were experiencing a little bit of the old “sexual tension”? All I’m saying is I’m glad there weren’t any cameras backstage. (aaaaaaand, there’s that vomit taste)

  34. Also, Bill O’ Reilly; 9/11 was totally an inside job. Get with the times man.

  35. My Papa Bear has always been a scholar and a gentleman.

  36. First, I’m Super Glad there wasn’t an hour and eleven minutes of that cackle fest.
    And Second, Nice Light Up heely Shoes there, Whoopie.

  37. “You know when you stay up way too late drinking too much and then get up way too early and you’re still kind of drunk and you have that taste in your mouth that’s like a little sweet in a gross way and very puckered and no matter how much water you drink or even brushing your tongue with toothpaste the sickly death taste won’t go away? You know that feeling. Does Bill O’Reilly know that he looks like that mouth taste?”

    HA! I LOVE Videogum! It is my reprieve from a world that takes itself far too seriously. Hunky Gabe’s witty blogging is the best part of my day.*

    *This is subject to change as I am currently single, and will most definitely change when I am having sex again.

  38. OK I mean really, O’Reilly is a total asshole, given. He’s being an asshole on the show. But Behar and Woopi are just grandstanding. He wasn’t even saying anything when Behar decided she’d had enough. He just wasn’t listening to her trying to argue with him because she wasn’t making a point and he had Woopi yelling incoherent sputtering at him on the other side. Woopi was just backing Behar up.

    Their argument is basically that because the Mosque people have the legal right to build there that it is morally right for them to build there. That’s just not the case. The two are not the same thing and O’Reilly for all his dickheadedness is right. They have a right to build there but if they really do want to heal the division between Muslims and non-Muslims they would listen to the people who were hurt by 9/11. It’s really not a free speech issue.

    Also, walking off on O’Reilly just makes him feel like he was right. The guy’s a walking hemorrhoid, he loves that shit.

  39. It’s like Morton Downey Jr. all over again, guys.

  40. Meh, I just watch The View so I know what kind of dishwashing soap to buy. THANKS ADVERTISING!
