In his Talking Points Memo tonight, Bill O'Reilly said that President Donald Trump's critics are whipping up hysteria about the alleged ties between the Trump administration and Russia, despite a lack of facts.

O'Reilly said the "anti-Trump media" is hoping to link the Trump campaign to the Russian hackers who disrupted Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign.

If they can't achieve that, O'Reilly said, then they want to have former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn tell the world that Trump ordered improper discussions with the Russian ambassador.

He said the media is now openly engaged in "nutty speculation" about Trump and Russia, and it's all based on nothing.

"There is no credible evidence at this point that the Trump campaign cooperated with the Russians in the hacking of the Clinton campaign. None," O'Reilly said. "There is no credible evidence that Gen. Flynn was directed to do anything."

"Yet the anti-Trump media spends hours talking trash."

Watch the full Talking Points Memo above, and let us know what you think in the comments.
