Kirsten Powers, Bill O’Reilly get in nasty fight over immigration: ‘I’m so tired of you mocking liberals’

powers-oreillyThings got a little uncomfortable Tuesday night on “The O’Reilly Factor” when Fox News liberal contributor Kirsten Powers blew up on host Bill O’Reilly during a discussion on illegal immigration.

Powers, who appears to favor an open border mentality, began by denigrating Irish immigrants from a century ago — O’Reilly is Irish — and then questioned “his sudden fascination with Central Americans.”

“You don’t seem to really know what you’re talking about,” O’Reilly said after he pointed out that the overwhelming number of unaccompanied children crossing the U.S. border with Mexico are from that region.

“I am so tired of this with you,” Powers shot back. “I’m so tired of your mocking — mocking liberals because they care about people, that there’s something self-righteous about wanting to take care of children. You know, I thought this was a Christian thing, Bill.”

Viewers could cut the tension with a knife.

The exchange quickly became a focal point on Twitter, as documented by Twitchy.com:
