Despite the obvious right-wing bias in “The O’Reilly Factor,” Bill O’Reilly loves to pretend that he is as fair and balanced as the next Fox News pundit, which is why when he was recently called out on his cozy relationship with presidential candidate Donald Trump, he got a bit testy.

Fellow pundit Greg Gutfield joked that only those who support Trump would bother to criticize the man, which meant that O’Reilly’s criticisms of Trump were just love taps from one pal to another. And besides, Gutfield said, Trump and O’Reilly have been friends for years!
