Watch: Tavis Smiley Drags Bill O’Reilly for ‘White Supremacist Language’ in Defense of Trump

PBS host Tavis Smiley took aim at Bill O’Reilly and Donald Trump after the Fox host defended Trump’s political stance through racial stereotypes. Smiley spoke with MSNBC Wednesday and said O’Reilly and the Republican presidential candidate are higher up on his prayer list.

Smiley said he stood by his earlier comments that Trump is a “racial arsonist,” adding that O’Reilly is a “race baiter.” The appearance follows O’Reilly telling Trump that African-Americans cannot get jobs because of the “tattoos on their forehead.” Smiley said those comments are why Black Lives Matter exists, “because the respect and the dignity and the humanity of Black life just doesn’t exist.”
