Fox News host Bill O’Reilly said during an appearance on “America’s Newsroom” that Russian leader Vladimir Putin and other “villains” were acting belligerent because the United States had a “weak president on foreign policy.” (VIDEO: Former Obama Official On ISIS: ‘Mistakes Were Made. Presidents Make Mistakes.’)

“You’ve got Vladimir Putin pushing the envelope again,” said host Martha MacCallum. “He’s flying fighter jets over the Baltic Sea and NATO has to scramble to deal with that situation. “Now, shaking the finger at Copenhagen, Denmark, saying ‘Don’t you move your ships in there, we’ll come after you as well.'”

“Putin will do what he wants,” O’Reilly said, “He’s bored, he will cause as much trouble as he can. He knows nothing will happen to him.” (VIDEO: Krauthammer Schools Obama: ‘Putin Is Not Isolated. He Is In Charge!’)

“This happens when you have a weak president on foreign policy,” he continued. “And let’s be honest, President Obama is a weak president on foreign policy. Putin will push him around, Iran will take advantage as much it can, that is the way it goes. History says it, history dictates; if you’re going to be weak overseas, villains take advantage of you.”
