Bill O’Reilly attributed the brawl between Jesse Watters and a Huffington Post reporter to the escalating violence from the far-left.

Watters downplayed the event, saying that no punches were thrown and it was hardly the big deal it was reported to be.

“It was really small ball,” he said, adding, “Things happen, and I regret that it happened.”

Watters was confronted at a post-White House Correspondents’ Dinner Saturday by reporter Ryan Grim over an incident that had occurred seven years ago between Watters and Grim’s girlfriend. It escalated to the point where blows were exchanged.

The Fox News host said this was just one more example that “violence is out of control in America,” and also pointed to an anti-capitalism rally in Seattle that disintegrated into violence.

After giving the back-story on the Watters-Grim confrontation, O’Reilly concluded that “the whole thing is insane,” adding that “this Grim character had no business bothering Jesse Watters about anything.”

The Fox News host said violence has become the modus operandi of the far-left.

“They seek to harm people with whom they disagree.”
