O'Reilly: You Know Things Are Serious When Obama Cancels Fundraising Trip
“When President Obama cancels a fundraising trip, you know things are serious,” Bill O’Reilly said in tonight’s Talking Points Memo.
Obama today met with his cabinet about Ebola instead of traveling after authorities announced that a second Texas health care worker has contracted Ebola.
O’Reilly said 29-year-old nurse Amber Joy Vinson’s case is even more harrowing than the first because she took a commercial flight on Oct. 13. Now, everyone on that flight has to be monitored.
“So you can see how Thomas Duncan coming into the USA on false premise has led to disaster," he said.
O’Reilly reiterated that U.S. authorities should stop admitting West Africans into America and that CDC Director Dr. Thomas Frieden should resign. He slammed Frieden as “almost incoherent” last night on “The Kelly File.”
Marine Corps Gen. John Kelly, who's in charge of the U.S. southern command, told the National Defense University that all hell could very well break loose in this country if an Ebola outbreak happens in Central America or Haiti because infected people could cross the border. O’Reilly called the assessment speculative but possible.
O’Reilly said that the government has under-reacted to the Ebola threat. He said Frieden “botched it, period” and urged Obama to stop fundraising and pay attention to the country.
