“Now we are used to irresponsible statements from rappers, but that’s really over-the-top,” O’Reilly said at the opening of the segment .
“You know President Obama is not a terrorist, he’s trying to do what he believes is the right thing to do,” O’Reilly told Jaco after the rapper attempted to explain his stance.
Fiasco also said that every president to serve this country has been a terrorist.
The two got into a heated debate on the war in Afghanistan, O’Reilly calling Fiasco’s understanding of the war “fallacious.”
O’Reilly dutifully presented his soundbites (“Obama is not a terrorst”), then turned to condescension, lecturing “Mr. Fiasco” that the word fallacious means wrong, and observing that few rap fans have political science Ph.Ds. Mr. Fiasco countered that his beef is not just with Obama, but with militaristic foreign policy, the root causes of terrorism and all American presidents.
