The worst person in the world speaks
We love Bill
Media Matter has this charming tidbit from the Worst Person in the World, Bill O'Reilly
O'Reilly: "[T]he homies" in New Orleans aren't "going to get the [reconstruction] job[s]"
CALLER: George Bush doesn't care about American people. After Katrina, he passed a law making it so his contracting buddies could bring in a bunch of illegal immigrants, instead of putting Americans to work, plus it took them five days to get down there.
CALLER: Okay, Bill. I'm going to expand on [rapper/producer] Kanye West's statement and say that George Bush doesn't care about American people. After Katrina, he passed a law making it so his no-bid contracting buddies could bring in a bunch of illegal immigrants, instead of putting Americans to work, plus it took them five days to get down there. Straight after [former President] Lyndon Johnson, who showed up the same day as the flood and put Americans to work.
Now, you look at this thing with the -- Dubai. He's out here waving a veto pen. Didn't even let the governors know. Didn't let other potential American bidders know. Didn't let hardly anybody know about this -- this deal.
O'REILLY: Well, he says he didn't know.
E.D. HILL (co-host): Well, wait --
CALLER: That even makes it worse, Bill. How can the administration --
HILL: American companies --
CALLER: -- approve this thing without him even knowing about it?
O'REILLY: Well look, [caller], here's the deal. On the rebuilding of New Orleans, you've got to use contractors that can do the job. So, you can't be -- you know, if you've got contractors who specialize in infrastructure rebuilding, you've got to bring them in. And the homies, you know, who you don't know -- I mean, they're just not going to get the job.
You know, back at the water cooler, besides harassing assistants, he was saying "How can they hire niggers to work in New Orleans. They need wetbacks, they work harder than niggers and they don't fucking complain. Niggers always got a complaint.
Now, how in the fuck is some guy up from Puebla more qualified to hammer nails than a local?
