Conservatives are really good (I’m lying. They suck at it because they’re so obvious) at deflecting attention away from themselves when they’re caught in a huge scandal. Like Donald Trump, for example. And then there’s Bill O’Reilly whose scandal is so enormous that 18 major ad companies have yanked their ads from his show after it was revealed that multiple women have filed complaints of sexual harassment against the Fox ‘News’ host. Donald Trump deemed April to be Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention month so naturally, Fox News renewed O’Reilly’s contract.The list of advertisers fleeing from being affiliated with Fox News now is growing so fast that the network stands to lose up to $1 billion in advertising.
O’Reilly tweeted, “CNN’s Don Lemon refuses to cover Susan Rice story” even though as National Security Advisor she did nothing improper.

Don Lemon addressed O’Reilly’s tweet saying,”False. I did not refuse to cover the story. But I did cover your sexual harassment allegations. Did you?”
False. I did not refuse to cover the story. But I did cover your sexual harassment allegations. Did you? https://t.co/sJ5mQQgx2E

O’Reilly’s attempt to deflect from his own scandal wasn’t overlooked on Twitter.

O’Reilly got burned so bad that someone’s going to have to call a medic. You know who didn’t need to ask for immunity? Susan Rice. That’s because you don’t need to avoid prosecution for doing your job. You know who did ask for immunity? Michael Flynn, that’s who.
