Fox News anchor Bill O’Reilly spoke about the final presidential debate on as a guest on CBS’ “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.” After praising debate moderator and Fox News anchor Chris Wallace, O’Reilly had some debate advice for the presidential candidates.
For Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, he advised that she ignore her opponent.
If I’m Secretary Clinton, I’m trying to look right into the camera and say “Look, I’m not as bad as they’re portraying me to be. I’m not this dragon lady, I really want to help you, and here’s how I want to help you.”
For Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, O’Reilly advised that he “stop whining:”
Now if I’m Trump, it’s the same thing. Stop whining. Stop that. Say “Look, I’ve got three things I want to say to you tonight.”
Colbert interrupted O’Reilly by joking, “It’s rigged, it’s rigged, it’s rigged.” O’Reilly responded with, “that’s whining.” O’Reilly also suggested a buzzer for each time Trump said that the election was “rigged” against him.
O’Reilly said that both candidates had an opportunity to gain more voters, but that they need to focus on the voters, rather than each other.
Trump took to Twitter earlier that day to share an accusation of election fraud:
Trump previously told his supporters that they needed to monitor polling stations to watch out for fraud.
This not the first time Trump has claimed that the election was being purposefully stacked against him, whether at the hands of his own party, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign or the cast of “Saturday Night Live.”
Trump even accused Lester Holt, moderator of the first presidential debate, of working in favor of Clinton.
