Ronald Reagan’s Son Tweets Stunningly Sexist Defense Of O’Reilly

Michael Reagan, son of President Ronald Reagan and his first wife Jane Wyman, has some very strong feelings about sexual harassment ― though he seemingly has no understanding of what sexual harassment is. 

Late Thursday night, Reagan posted two tweets, both alluding to Fox News’ termination of Bill O’Reilly after a slew of allegations of workplace sexual harassment were made public.

The New York Times reported earlier this month that Fox and O’Reilly had settled five suits ― which included allegations of “verbal abuse, lewd comments, unwanted advances and phone calls in which it sounded as if Mr. O’Reilly was masturbating” ― and paid out a collective $13 million to the accusers. On Tuesday, another woman came forward, alleging that O’Reilly leered at her and called her “hot chocolate.”

Reagan, a 72-year-old white man, decided that he was an appropriate messenger to let women of color know that being called “hot choclare” by a male superior at the office isn’t sexist, racist harassment ― it’s merely a compliment. 

Hot Choclare used to be a compliment on your looks today it is called sexual harassment..@oreillyfactor

Five minutes later, Reagan decided he had more to say ― this time, about sexual harassment writ large.

“If women are going to wear low cut dresses that show cleavage don’t be harassed when we men look,” he tweeted.

If women are going to wear low cut dresses that show cleavage don’t be harassed when we men look.Or shld we sue for sexual arousal?

You hear that, women? If men leer at you, it’s most certainly just a compliment and/or the uncontrollable nature of male sexuality, which you have likely set off with your outfit! 

We would like to direct Reagan to the U.S. government’s definition of sexual harassment. According to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, sexual harassment is defined as “unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical harassment of a sexual nature.”

Michael Moore Recalls The Time Bill O’Reilly Accosted Him On The Street

Michael Moore is feeling pretty good after Bill O’Reilly was dumped by Fox News following multiple allegations of sexual harassment. 

On Thursday, while speaking after a special screening of his 2002 film “Bowling for Columbine” at the Tribeca Film Festival, the Moore recalled how O’Reilly once randomly accosted him on the street. 

Moore told the audience of one time when O’Reilly was “passing me by on the street in a limo, sees me, tells the driver to screech to a halt, and he jumps out of the car, yelling at me. Someone happened to capture a picture of the moment. Look at O’Reilly’s face ― it’s the scariest frikkin’ thing. But I’m still standing and he’s not,” he said. 

Yes, there’s somehow photographic evidence of such an event, which Moore tweeted out on Wednesday. 

So I’m walking down the street one day, O’Reilly drives by, screeches to a halt, jumps out & starts yelling @ me. Ha! pic.twitter.com/8Iu5TACQP4

Moore famously went head-to-head with O’Reilly after the release of Moore’s 2004 documentary “Fahrenheit 9/11,” in which the former Fox News host began the interview by asking Moore, “You want to apologize to the president now or later?”
