Bill O’Reilly Said He Had to Console Trump After Being Booed by His Fans for Admitting to Booster
During their grift revival, in front of a depressingly small audience, O’Reilly asked Trump if he had gotten the vaccine booster. Perhaps Trump thought he was talking just among close friends, given the number of people in attendance, but for whatever reason, he said yes, he had gotten the booster.
The crowd booed Trump.
Instead of being a “strong” leader (Trump always values strength, right?) and saying, “No, it’s the right thing to do, it makes sense.” He said “No, no, no, no” and pointed at a small group of people saying only they were booing.
Rather than take it like someone “strong,” he needed O’Reilly to tell him that things would be okay. According to the Daily Beast:

Bill O’Reilly has revealed that he had to console Donald Trump after he was booed by his own supporters for getting a vaccine booster shot. Trump told MAGA fans that he’d had his COVID-19 booster during Sunday’s final stop on the “History Tour” he co-headlined with the disgraced ex-Fox News star. The revelation prompted a chorus of boos and jeers from anti-vaxxers in the crowd.
In an interview with Dan Abrams on NewsNation, O’Reilly said Trump phoned him after the event and was apparently hurt by the reaction. “I told him that today, he called me,” said O’Reilly.
“I said ‘This is good for you, this is good that people see another side of you, not a political side, you told the truth, you believe in the vax, your administration did it, and you should take credit for it, because it did save, I don’t know, hundreds of thousands of lives.’”
The ex-Fox News star later said that Trump will definitely run in 2024, telling Abrams: “I’m trying to tell President Trump, run on your record. He’s going to run again, all right.”
He is going to tell everyone that he’s running again, that’s for sure. Hard to keep the money coming in if one says he’s “mulling it over,” and talking to people. Much better to have a “strong” message, “I am running again.”
But imagine a grown man, former president, needing consoling for being booed because he did the right thing! This is junior high stuff!
Of course, it’s one of the most believable stories that O’Reilly’s ever told.
