Get Real: Bill O’Reilly Says Slaves Who Built White House Were ‘Well-Fed’

Fox News host Bill O’Reilly is either a master at trolling us, or didn’t have time to pick up a history book.

On Monday night during Michelle Obama’s moving DNC speech, she referenced her emotional reaction from watching her children live and play in a home that was built by slaves — a powerful moment that brought many watching to tears.

“I wake up every morning in a house that was built by slaves,” Mrs. Obama said in her keynote address. “I watch my daughters — two beautiful, intelligent, black young women — playing with their dogs on the White House lawn.”

On Tuesday, O’Reilly responded during his show, The O’Reilly Factor, playing the role of fact-checker to “school” us on what really went down.

“Slaves that worked there were well-fed and had decent lodgings provided by the government, which stopped hiring slave labor in 1802. However, the feds did not forbid subcontractors from using slave labor. So, Michelle Obama is essentially correct in citing slaves as builders of the White House, but there were others working as well. Got it all? There will be a quiz,” the political commentator said.

When did he get his PhD in African-American Studies? Also, according to the 66-year-old journalist, there were no “illegal immigrants” living in the U.S. at that time and, “In addition, free blacks, whites and immigrants also worked on the massive building.”

Twitter was not amused and went for the jugular in their responses:

Daily Devotional: Fearfully and Wonderfully Made...like a Beautiful Tapestry

God, investigate my life; get all the facts firsthand.    I'm an open book to you;       even from a distance, you know what I'm thinking.   You know when I leave and when I get back;      I'm never out of your sight.   You know everything I'm going to say      before I start the first sentence.   I look behind me and you're there,      then up ahead and you're there, too—      your reassuring presence, coming and going.   This is too much, too wonderful—      I can't take it all in!    Psalm 139: 1-6   Boy, it takes a whole lot of faith to stare into the beauty of creation and then think that it just accidentally or randomly happened.  To see the delicate balance there is in life and…See More
