Election HQ O'Reilly: Trump Says 'The System is Rigged'-- Is He Right?
Tuesday on The O'Reilly Factor, Bill O'Reilly took a closer look into contentions by Donald Trump and many of his supporters that the electoral system in America is "rigged" against him.
"Donald Trump has raised the [suspicion] that the system is rigged--Bernie Sanders also said that," O'Reilly said, pointing to the Vermont senator's primary against Hillary Clinton in which many 'superdelegates' swung the delegate tally in the former New York senator's favor.
"Trump believes that the media, combined with suspect voting patterns is how the system is rigged," he said, "With more than 100 million Americans voting, it is virtually impossible for the actual vote tally to be rigged," he said.
However, O'Reilly said there was "no question" that voters are not receiving objective political reporting from the media.
"So many journalists are committed to the Left," he said, "and many Republicans face 'rigged' coverage."
He also pointed to "appearances of impropriety"--emphasizing the term 'appearance'-- which have included an FBI deputy's wife receiving money from a PAC run by Gov. Terence McAuliffe (D-Va.) a longtime Clinton ally, while Mrs. Clinton was being investigated, as well as Bill Clinton's meeting with Attorney General Loretta Lynch on a Phoenix tarmac.
"The vote cannot be possibly rigged...Mr Trump should accept whatever happens unless theres compelling evidence of corruption," O'Reilly said, adding that however, "If you don't think the federal political and justice systems have severe problems then you are living in the land of Oz."
