The son of Ronald Reagan chose to defend disgraced former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly in a series of tweets this week. But defending an alleged serial harasser never ends well.
Michael Reagan, a conservative commentator for Newsmax who’s appeared on Fox, first fired off a tweet that addressed a claim that O’Reilly once referred to a female African American Fox employee as “hot chocolate,” saying that it was meant as a “compliment.”
Digging the hole deeper, Reagan said that women who wear “low cut dresses” and show “cleavage” shouldn’t be surprised when men gawk at them, and topped it off with an especially bizarre assertion:
O’Reilly was finally fired from Fox after his show saw an exodus of advertisers in the wake of numerous sexual harassment accusations.
