O'Reilly Reacts to President Trump's 'Militant' Inauguration Speech
Friday in his Talking Points Memo, Bill O'Reilly analyzed President Trump's inauguration speech, calling it "somewhat of a departure" from what is typically heard at these historic events.
O'Reilly said it was more of a "militant" speech directed at his supporters than the somewhat softer tone taken by past presidents of both parties.
He noted that the 16-minute oration took aim at the cost of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars under President George W. Bush as well as some of the policies of President Obama, while the two were seated nearby.
Trump has "no sensitivity to politicians of the past, no matter who is in office," O'Reilly said.
Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer later said such a direct speech is part of his "appeal" to his base.
O'Reilly noted that Trump's former opponent, Hillary Clinton as well as former President Jimmy Carter, who is 92 years old, took the time to attend the inauguration.
