Bill O’Reilly: Kim Kardashian a ‘pinhead’

Just days after calling pop sensation Lady Gaga a “patriot,” television host Bill O’Reilly declared reality TV star Kim Kardashian a “pinhead” for reportedly getting a $2 million engagement ring.

“For some reason, 30-year-old Kim Kardashian has become very famous in America for pretty much doing nothing,” O’Reilly said last week after news outlets broke the story of Kardashian’s engagement to boyfriend of six months Kris Humphries.

O’Reilly, who wrote “Pinheads and Patriots” last year, seemed to say it was absurd for Kardashian to receive such an expensive piece of jewelry.

“[N]ow she’s engaged to basketball player Kris Humphries, who apparently gave Ms. Kardashian a ring worth more than $2 million,” O’Reilly said. “Now, we believe in true love, but that seems to be a bit much. A $1 million ring would have been nice, and then you could have used the other million to help people who need assistance. Ms. Kardashian and Mr. Humphries are pinheads.”

O’Reilly criticized Kardashian before she even began dating her fiance. Last summer, he chafed at the idea of then 29-year-old Kardashian posing with then-16-year-old popstar Justin Bieber for Elle magazine.

“I will tell you this: If a 16-year-old girl was pictured with a 29-year-old man in any of that, he’d be in big trouble,” O’Reilly said, seeming to imply that a man in Kardashian’s place would be pegged a pervert.

Stirring the pot some more, O’Reilly said, “I wanted to be a baseball player [when I was 16]. I didn’t want to hang around with Kim Kardashian…I had a baseball bat and a bat and [a pair of] ice skates! That’s what I was doing.”

But not all A-Listers are pinheads to O’Reilly. During an episode of “The O’Reilly Factor” on Tuesday, the political commentator praised Lady Gaga for getting angry at David Letterman when the late night host asked her if it was true that she ate a Barbie doll head.

Apparently irritated, the Grammy Award winning singer snatched Letterman’s sheet of paper, stuffed it in her mouth, and said she was “fed up” with his question and all the rumors circulating about her.

“I think Lady Gaga is a patriot for eating Dave’s note cards,” O’Reilly said. “I wish I had thought of that when I was on the Letterman program. I would have done that.”
