Liberals became unhinged and demanded Bill O’Reilly be fired after he made fun of Maxine Waters’ hair claiming it’s racist.
They didn’t seem to have the same issue for the past two years of daily mockery of President Donald Trump’s hair by nearly every mainstream comedian and late night television host.
During an appearance on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” on Monday the top rated Fox News host quipped, after watching one of her usual anti-Trump rants, that he couldn’t take her seriously because of her “James Brown wig.”
“I didn’t hear a word she said,” he said. “I was looking at the James Brown Wig.”
That was after O’Reilly said he “loves” Maxine Waters and wants to see more of her, in her own sitcom.
“People get angry at Maxine Waters,” he said. “I want more of it.”
And even after he made the comment on her “James Brown wig” he hit her with another compliment.
“She’s a sincere individual, whatever she says she believes. I love you Maxine,” he said. “I want to see you on The Factor, and when hell freezes over, I’m sure that will happen.”
Hours later, O’Reilly made many liberals even angrier when he apologized with the following statement and followed up with a warning on political correctness.
“As I have said many times, I respect Congresswoman Maxine Waters for being sincere in her beliefs. I said that again today on Fox & Friends calling her ‘old school.’ Unfortunately, I also made a jest about her hair which was dumb. I apologize.” — Bill O’Reilly
But not before the Left got busy doing the two things they do best… call someone a racist and demand that they be fired.

I usually refrain from passing judgment on people because I was brought up to be polite. But Bill O’Reilly is an idiot. https://t.co/jLH2uJ5vW5

But others pointed out the hypocrisy of their anger.
Liberal logic: The left can make fun of Trump’s hair every single day, but if Bill O’Reilly makes fun of Maxine Waters’ hair it’s RACIST!!!

Leftist Logic: We can make fun of Trump’s hair bc he’s white. Maxine Waters is black, so she can’t handle the joke.
