Bill O’Reilly says that Bernard Sanders “has no chance at all” to win the nomination and eventually the presidency.
Appearing on ABC’s “The View” Monday, O’Reilly insisted that Sanders has “no chance,” adding that it’s “not too late” for Joe Biden to enter the race, which “would obviously make a difference.”
“Right now Hillary Clinton is the nominee,” O’Reilly emphasized. “Bernie Sanders has no chance at all. And I don’t even know what the other three guys’ names are.”
The “O’Reilly Factor” host insisted that the Democratic candidates other than Clinton “don’t have any chance, including Bernie. But Bernie, I love him. He’s very entertaining, alright. And you don’t know this but he was on my show a lot until he decided to run for president and they said, ‘You better not do O’Reilly anymore’ and he hasn’t.”
“Americans aren’t going to vote for a socialist. And if you don’t believe me, book a plane trip to Venezuela, check it out,” O’Reilly explained. “That’s a socialist, a democratic socialist country. If you want to live in Venezuela, check it out. I don’t think Bernie has ever been there, but he should. He has no chance. So Hillary is the nominee.”
According to O’Reilly, Sanders is not in the “Democratic or Republican party because they’re both too conservative for him. So he’s a socialist.”
When asked about the prospects of a Biden run, O’Reilly said, “He would compete with Hillary Clinton particularly because the FBI is still investigating Hillary Clinton. And if the FBI turns up evidence, the Justice Department has to indict her. If the Justice Department indicts her, she can’t run for president.”
