“The O’Reilly Factor” host Bill O’Reilly got a taste of Kenan Thompson character DeAndre Cole on this week’s “Saturday Night Live” on NBC. The segment, “What’s Up With That?,” spoofed BET.
O’Reilly appeared on the so-called President’s Day episode and spoke about his book, “Killing Lincoln: The Shocking Assassination that Changed America Forever,” but the perplexed pundit couldn’t get much of a word in before the show reverted back into Thompson’s song and dance.
“DeAndre, listen up — I was a history teacher in Miami,” O’Reilly said. “And I know that the times now are a lot like the times during the Civil War because we’re a divided country. It’s not as intense as back then. But what we need most now is leadership. We got to pull together. Yeah. And it’s going to take a kind of tremendous leadership that President Lincoln had to give this country. Alright, that’s what we need to get back on course. And so if we could have that leadership, and it’s just a tragedy that he died the way he did.”
