Watch: Bill O'Reilly Slams Obama for Perpetuating DADT 'Nonsense'

Oreilly

On last night's Tonight Show, FOX News host Bill O'Reilly and Jay Leno discussed the Dan Choi discharge. O'Reilly attacked Obama for perpetuating the discrimination.

"President Obama has the power to stop this 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' business. Just sign an executive order. So I don't know why it's taking so long....It's not fair. We should stop this nonsense."

Of course Leno can't help but sneakily inject an anal sex gag into the exchange.

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. Jay Leno is a flaming asshole, one of the most repugnant, unfunny "comedians" ever. I am surprised at Mr. O'Reilly though. Good for him that he has called out our somewhat, um, cowardly president. Grow a pair, Mr. Obama.

  2. So O'rally, like most Americans, is ALL for us having full rights to being cannon fodder as long as we don't dare ask for the rights that we sacrificed and/or died for when, and if, we return.

    What a guy!

  3. The world must be coming to an end: I actually agree with something Bill O'Reilly said.

    Jay Leno, however, needs to go die in a fire.

  4. Bill O is completely disengenuous in remarks about not knowing why President Obama has not changed the law by executive order. While I agree that Obama should do this, Bill O NEVER posed the question why President Bush didn't change the law by EO.

    President Obama has done more for LGBT's than any other president. I agree it is not nearly enough, but to get criticized by Bill O'Reilly for not doing enough for LGBT's... that is RIDICULOUS, but even worse it is goal oriented.. the goal being to create problems for President Obama from both the left and the right in hopes of returning this country to leadership from some right wing nut job similar to Bush.

  5. It's really saying something when Bill O'Reilly of all people agrees with us (and of course now that someone big on Fox has given "permission" Obama is free to issue the executive order)

    Oh, and Jay is a major tool.

  6. Probably because if Obama let gay service members serve, he'd be disobeying the law. It's unfortunate that so many people have such little respect for the laws. Congress or anyone could sue him for failing to enforce the law.

    DADT isn't a policy, it's written law of the land.

    It needs fixed, but it isn't because Obama could fix it with a stroke of a pen, but isn't.

  7. If Bill O'Reilly can get on national TV and say that DADT is ridiculous.... I mean jeesh. Enough already, wake me up when this whole thing is over. And, Jay Leno continues to be un-funny as usual.

  8. Well, kudos to Bill...Kenn says...with....pause. As his mission is to take down O for anything he can and this is just another wedge he is placing.

  9. " but even worse it is goal oriented.. the goal being to create problems for President Obama from both the left and the right in hopes of returning this country to leadership from some right wing nut job similar to Bush."

    Um, and your thinly veiled support of Obama has the goal of perpetuating the myth that the D behind his name makes him our ally. Giving a speech, hosting a reception or two, and expanding benefits for a small segment of the federal employees who call him boss are great, but have no bearing on the lived experience of most GLBT people. Bush never promised to do anything on DADT (or anything else advancing LGBT rights), Obama did, that's the difference. AND FYI ... Bill O'Reilly coming out for a DADT repeal has a lot more impact than Obama, simply because the people who listen to him and value his opinion don't come from the party where the official line is, "Well support you and do everything in our power to help end discrimination against you...except of course when we control the government and actually have the power to do something, then we'll tell you to wait in line."

    As for the policy statement, the power of the executive order from the commander in chief has the full force of law for the military. The president has chosen to keep the efforts for repeal in the Congress, not because of a limit on his legal power in the situation, but purely because he doesn't want that on his record when he starts to campaign for re-election in January of 2011.

  12. jay leno is a total pig. he has never matured past the age of 13. not funny, not clever, not appealing, always going for the cheap shot. welcome to sub-literate, middle-america humor, kids.

  13. Why any of you are praising Bill OReilly? He's not reaching out to gays, he's making a stab at Obama. He's simplifying an issue for a political point.

  14. O'Reilly is simply using a platform other than his own show to try and take create dissent between Obama and a part of a constituent that voted for him in 2008. That's all this is about for O'Reilly.

    I may agree with O'Reilly's sentiments but I'm completely aware of why he said it, where he said it, and what he expected to accomplish from it.

  15. If you think old fat head here is sincere about his outrage over DADT still being upheld I have a bridge in San Francisco to sell you. What would O'Reilly's tune have been if Obama had envoked a stop loss? He would have called it a gross and heinous abuse of presidential power in order to whip his idiotic base into a mullet phantasia! Although Obama hasn't been our knight in shining armor I can still see the right trying to pass as our savior the same way they did during healthcare. "hey faggots! We don't think you are fundamentally equal but gosh darn it Obama is turning us all into commies!"

  16. O'Reilly's new show, "As the Republicans Turn" will feature Log Cabins Republicans in uniform.

  18. BO is normally a "gay sex is icky" kinda guy, so what or who changed his mind? I think he just says whatever he thinks his audience would like to hear.

  19. Nope. Can't bring myself to watch it.

  20. Tool squared...

  21. Beck only defended Sharrod because the administration canned her. Now, O'Reilly defends integration because the administration is too cowardly to implement it. Their positions would be completely reversed if this administration had acted differently, believe it.

  22. @ANON- which BO did you mean? B. Obama or B. O'Reilly? ;)

    I simply can't bring myself to listen to O'Reilly, the smarmy bullying tone of voice is like fingernails on chalkboards to me, and the oily smear coating every "I'm so clever" nuance that issues from his pie-hole makes me want to hurl.

  23. It is simple, anytime O'Reilly can take a stab at Obama, he will, no matter the cause. O'Reilly is a anti-gay, no matter what his stance is on DADT. If DADT is repealed, he will probably come out with separate (but equal?) barracks, showers, etc.

    I watched the show last night as was totally taken aback by O'Reilly's stance on DADT, until I realized that he was doing it to take that stab at Obama.

  24. because oreilly is such a gay equality supporter

    Posted by: rick | Jul 27, 2010 5:22:28 PM


  25. Even a broke clock's... I mean, it's pretty sad when even oreilly can get behind the executive order and our so-called ally in the oval office can't.

    Nonetheless, beck, oreilly and goons are agent provocateurs.
