On Wednesday’s Daily Show, Trevor Noah took a look back at some of Bill O’Reilly’s worst comments after Fox News fired the host in light of sexual harassment allegations. O’Reilly was a longtime enemy of Jon Stewart’s The Daily Show, but Noah did the honors last night to give him a proper sendoff.
“Here at The Daily Show, we want to give O’Reilly the send-off he deserves,” Noah declared. “Because let’s be honest, he’s not going to get it on Fox, that’s for sure. Those guys are probably going to pretend that nothing is wrong.”
“So let’s give Bill his proper due, because you may not know this, but Bill O’Reilly was the biggest figure in cable news,” Noah explained. “At one point, no one even came close, because they were afraid he might sexual harass them.”
Noah then played a series of clips of O’Reilly making outright racist remarks and shouting down the fictional War on Christmas. “Looking back on all of O’Reilly’s greatest hits, the one thing that’s hard to believe is that it took him this long to lose his job.”
