O'Reilly to ABC -- Fire "Nutty" Rosie!

3/30/2007 2:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Click to return to TMZ.comAnd you thought Rosie-Trump got nasty? FOX News' designated flamethrower, Bill O'Reilly, slammed Rosie on "The O'Reilly Factor" last night, calling her "nutty" and "irresponsible," and suggesting that ABC should fire O'Donnell for her provocative remarks about Iran and the war in Iraq. Look out below.

Rosie, who was not a guest on O'Reilly's show, has been anything but gentle in expressing her feelings toward U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East, going so far as to suggest on her blog that the recent kidnapping of British sailors was designed by the U.S. and Britain to help escalate hostilities against Iran. On "The View" this week, Rosie also challenged viewers to Google "Gulf of Tonkin," a reference to the controversial naval attacks in Southeast Asia that led to the U.S.'s increased involvement in the Vietnam conflict.

Now, O'Reilly is calling for ABC to be "held accountable" for Rosie's remarks, especially after the network axed Bill Maher post-9/11 for suggesting that the terrorists who attacked the World Trade Center were "courageous." ABC, for its part, had no comment this morning.

On today's "View," Rosie was mute about O'Reilly's broadside, but the show was taped before last night's "Factor."

Bye bye Sam    

Rosie needs to shut her big trap. If she doesn't like the U.S. maybe she should move to Iraq.

Either fire Rosie or change the name of the View to Rosies View. I'm sick of her own warped views on how she sees, and apparently we're supposed to see things. Shes a big mouth bully trying at this stage of life to even scores with all that should have been settled with a few when she was in the 7th grade.

Her "views" of life and this Country are as bloated and foul as she is herself. Good for O'Reilly calling her out. Bout time someone on TV did instead of bowing down to her. Yeah right Rosie, the Brits and the US called Iran and said "here take these British Sailors"

ABC, in my mind, is absolutely responsible for Rosie's actions. Thank you Mr. O'Reilly for bringing this story to my attention.

It's not called The View anymore ... it's called Rosie's View Or Your Ass Will Be Fired. No one on that show gives their view anymore because it's not allowed ... you have to agree with what Rosie is saying or she will beat you down or talk over you. That's the biggest problem I have with Rosie ... she isn't open to anyone else's view or opinions but yet you are suppose to be open to what she has to say ... Rosie is one of the largest hypocrites out there. For her to insinuated that the US and Britian had something to do with those soliders being taken just to create more hositility towards Iraq is frigging crazy and I'm ashamed she is an American.

She needs to go now. She should move to the middle east and see how she gets treated with her big mouth. Her anit-American views and hatred have gone way too far. O'Rielly is right ABC needs to be accountable on this one. They will probably be using her TV show as propaganda in Iran any day. This will sure help the peace process move along. She is ignorant and offensive.

Her shear ignorance is appalling. She either doesn't understand or appreciate the tragedy and horror of 9/11, or she is deliberately fanning the faux-conspiracy flames at the expense of all those who lost loved ones. Either way she is contemptable.

She is a warmongering treasonist and should be shown the door from the view as well as this country.

Okay, Bill has become too damn smug for me lately, but he is right on this one! She does need to go away. She's always trying to start something with her "opinion(lies)". How ridiculous to suggest that we and Britain arranged for these soldiers to be kidnapped just so we could to war with Iran? Idiot! She should go for the pure and simple fact that she's an idiot and in my opinion unpatriotic! Go Away Rosie!!!!!!!!!
