Never call someone a coward if they served in the United States military, especially if you never served.
Fox News host Bill O’Reilly learned that the hard way after he called Montel Williams a coward for not appearing on his show after they changed the topic Williams had previously agreed to discuss.
“He’s not a man of his word, he’s unprofessional,” O’Reilly whined. “Montel, I’ve known you for a long time, but that is about as low as it gets.”
Fast-forward to later on in the show and O’Reilly still hadn’t let it go and only escalated his attack.
We didn’t miss Montel Williams at all. We didn’t miss him. Did anybody miss him? … Hey Montel, you’re not a stand-up guy, I gotta tell you. Walking out at the last minute? Very cowardly.
Bill O’Reilly sounded an awful lot like Donald Trump there.
Here’s the video via YouTube.
This was a HUGE mistake for O’Reilly because Montel Williams served his country as a Marine and Lieutenant Commander in the US Navy for many years before developing his own talk show.
And Williams did NOT let O’Reilly get away with it, ripping him a new one in the process.
“You have to take it to another place, O’Reilly, and call me a coward, because I won’t talk to you?” an angry Williams began before referencing Bill O’Reilly’s scandals so that people know who the real coward is.
The word ‘coward’ is usually used on people who have done most of the things that you’ve done, like embellishing lies about your credentials as a journalist, like the fact that your own daughter in a testimony in a court case — reported in the Washington Post — said that you dragged your ex-wife down a flight of stairs. You wanna talk about coward, homeboy? When you point a finger this way, three are coming back. We know who the coward is.
Williams then slammed O’Reilly for never having put on a uniform for his country.
“And if I’m a coward because I won’t talk to you, let’s also remember this. I spent 22 years in the military, my friend…You shirked your responsibility and didn’t serve. You want to talk about coward? That’s what a coward truly is.”
In fact, O’Reilly effectively dodged the draft like Donald Trump did through a series of education deferments in an effort to avoid fighting for this country.
So Montel Williams absolutely torpedoed Bill O’Reilly and his over-inflated ego.

In short, O’Reilly just got taken to school by Montel Williams so maybe he should definitely retire before he makes an even bigger ass of himself.
