Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

O’Reilly Defends Trump Civil War Remark, Goes After Dan Rather

Former CBS anchor Dan Rather took to Facebook in order to chastise the president, calling him crazy and saying he lacked the knowledge of a grade-schooler.

The sheer craziness of this obsession by Donald Trump with Andrew Jackson and the Civil War is carnival act unlike anything I have ever seen at the White House. Never mind that Mr. Trump’s knowledge of American history seems below that of most grade-schoolers. These are the rantings of someone who really should be focused on the job of governing.”

What Rather did not mention was that much of what grade-schoolers learn about the Civil War is progressive propaganda that covers the issues surrounding states rights and secession to focus primarily on slavery.

In his rebuttal, O’Reilly emphatically stated “Trump was right,” citing a 1952 letter written by former president Harry Truman to back up his defense.

History will tell you however that Old Buck, that’s President James Buchanan who is in office right before Abraham Lincoln, was short on decision and had he acted with the firmness of Andrew Jackson, for instance, in his dealing with the problems of the South the war between the states might well have been averted.”

O’Reilly elaborated on the Trump letter to further bolster his contention that Trump correctly analyzed the situation.

Trump was right. Andrew Jackson would not have tolerated any secession movement at all and would have moved federal troops much faster into the problem situations. James Buchanan, Old Buck, did nothing. He was afraid. And that emboldened the South. End of historical story.”

In addition to giving historical context, O’Reilly also acknowledged that he no longer misses his old program due to the deteriorating level of discourse.

You may have seen a bunch of people on cable news, and that’s one of the reasons I don’t really miss it, saying that President Trump is a moron for saying that Andrew Jackson might have prevented the Civil War because of Jackson’s skills in running the country.”

So Dan Rather, who knows very little about history, and others go out and they hammer Trump like he’s a moron. These morons that you see on cable news, just turn them off. Just turn them off because you are never going to get an honest story. They know nothing.”
