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."

Here we have an articulate, courageous, intelligent, witty, honest independent women who shared her views on Bldg #7. She is accurate. Way before Rosie, made her comment, I watched the video many times over and was quite perplexed at how Bldg. #7 fell. It was clear to me and should have been to anyone who saw this video, THIS BUILDING #7 IMPLODED. There should be an investigation in this matter and stop trying to hide the fact and the truths. Rosie is all about facts and truth, and she has the courage of her convictions to say so. God Bless Rosie O'Donnell.

I wrote to every newsstation, reporter, journalist, Congressmen, Senator and shared this exact opinion. No, I never received one reply. Hummmmmm!!!! makes one wonder about this honesty of this Administration.

I applauded her remarks on The View and her right to speak them. Yet, these corrupt, incompetent, lying men have no other recourse than to attact her personally, not on the subject matter. That speaks volumes on the subject matter. Instead of professionally and intellectuality debating her, no they attact her personal life, her weight, etc. What does this say about these men. and their intellectual abilities. And Tom Delay, he is a joke. Talk about decit and corruption, he is the leader of the pact.

I support Rosie O'Donnell completely and any comprehensive person would also.

Thank you.

Rosie needs to disappear from the public eye, she continues to contribute to the spiralling down of Americas moral values. If I-mess had to go, why not Rosie ?
She is a disgrace to our society.
