Fox News host Bill O’Reilly said on Wednesday that he would have a San Francisco official who was critical of his network arrested if he was the Attorney General of the United States.
The San Francisco Board of Supervisors unanimously voted to keep supporting its “sanctuary city” policy following the shooting of Kathryn Steinle in San Francisco in July.
“Let me be very clear. That woman is a disgrace, and if I were the attorney general of the United States, I would immediately place her under arrest,” O’Reilly said in regards to Supervisor Malia Cohen. “I might not win the case, but I would send a message to all subversive office holders in this country, that if you do not obey federal law, you yourself will be prosecuted.”
Francisco Sanchez is currently facing murder charges for Kathryn Steinle’s death.
O’Reilly played a clip of Malia Cohen, accusing her of speaking to Steinle’s family and their supporters when she said, “We cannot allow one event to dictate 25 years of our city’s policies towards undocumented immigrants in our city. And more importantly, we cannot allow hateful conservative news stations to drive how we respond to incidents in our city. I’m not afraid of Fox News and they don’t influence how I make my policy decisions here in San Francisco.”

Viewers did not, however, see Cohen’s follow-up remark: “We can talk all we want about improving public safety in this building, but if people in our community don’t trust law enforcement, no level of police staffing is going to make our community safe.”
Cohen’s words sound more ‘small government’ than what O’Reilly’s network claims to be.
“There comes a point when the American people have to rise up and elect responsible people to run the country, throw out the irresponsible people,” O’Reilly said. “Because right now, you know what? Things are officially out of control here.”
We’re very happy O’Reilly is not the Attorney General.
