On Monday, O’Reilly Factor correspondent Jesse Watters caught up with two Democratic lawmakers whose offensive remarks had drawn attention in recent weeks.
This was terrific. Watch them squirm – and lie.
One was Watters’ own Representative, Steve Israel, from Long Island, New York.
Watters made note of his constituency when he confronted Israel in a House office building.
“You said that the Republican base was animated by racism–can you explain that?” Watters asked as the Democrat waited for an elevator.
“Well, you are picking up on something that was out of context, and happened three weeks ago, so I question why you would even ask that,” a visibly irritated Israel smirked.
“Who cares what people think, we need to engage in action; pass a comprehensive immigration bill,” he later continued.
Israel contested that he had not referred to Republicans as ‘racist’.
