Russia Demands Apology for Fox Blowhard O'Reilly's Reckless Murder Charge

Abettor of mass murder Bill O'Reilly tells us that Putin is a 'killer'

And we're told Donald Trump is the one with a reckless mouth?

Big mouth buffoon Bill O'Reilly, one of the stars of Fox News who cut his teeth relentlessly hawking Iraqi WMD lies and tales of Saddam's cruelty to American audiences in 2002-2003, was so aghast at President Donald Trump's respect for Vladimir Putin, the president of Russia, that he instantly vomited out the words "Putin is a killer."

That was during O'Reilly's interview with the president which aired before the Super Bowl on Sunday.

Russia has not taken the slight in stride, demanding an apology for the gross insult to the country's head of state. From RT:

“We consider the words of the Fox News host unacceptable and insulting,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Monday. “We would prefer to receive an apology to the Russian president from a respected TV station like that.”

O’Reilly labeled Putin “a killer” during an interview with US President Donald Trump, in which they discussed the Republican’s numerous statements on his willingness to work with Russia to jointly deal with issues such as terrorism.

Trump shrugged off the comment, saying: “There are a lot of killers. We’ve got a lot of killers. What, do you think our country is so innocent?”

Claims of Vladimir Putin's "killings" ("He kills journalists.") are repeated in the western media ad nauseam, without ever offering evidence, and usually without even naming the alleged victims.

Since Vladimir Putin shares with Donald Trump the dubious distinction of being 1 of 2 men capable of incinerating the planet, I should think at least a modicum of respect between the two is desirable - apparently Bill O'Reilly and most of the mainstream media don't think so. 

Considering O'Reilly's hands are stained with the blood of hundreds of thousands of Iraqis, just who does he think he is leveling a charge of murder against anyone?
