    Former Fox News host Bill O'Reilly paid tribute to his ex-boss on Thursday's episode of his No Spin podcast, calling him a "tough guy" who did very kind things in private, and who died with a broken heart because he was forced out of the network under a cloud of controversy.
    There were accusations "he treated some women poorly and he had to leave the company. Ultimately, he walked away and he was never the same," O'Reilly said.
    He added, "There are very few human beings on this planet who are visionaries. He died in a way that was heartbreaking. His departure from Fox News broke his heart."

    The former Fox News star also took shots at what he says is a biased media that treated Ailes far more harshly than it treated President Bill Clinton when he dealt with similar accusations.
    "The difference between Roger Ailes and Bill Clinton was Clinton was able to overcome what he brought upon himself in the White House because of a largely sympathetic media. That's a real interesting comparison," O'Reilly noted.
    Ailes, he said, was known for settling scores, "and that made him a big target. He didn't take guff from the left or the right. He alienated a lot of people. He was very tough and a lot of people hated him, and that hatred ultimately brought him down.
    "He made a difference," O'Reilly said of Ailes. "And no hater will ever be able to obscure that."

    Saying "touch my penis" in private is really kind.
    Opportunities are usually disguised as hard work, so most people don't recognize them.

    It qualifies you for the Presidency. Regardless, he was exposed and he, O'Reilly and others like him are on notice that this crap isn't acceptable any more.

    If Trump had been touching weiners instead of grabbing pussy, he wouldn't be president.

    Trump wasn't the President who asked women to touch his weiner. Well, he didn't confess to it publicly... he might have.

    I hope you're right.

    Randomly asking is bad, just grabbing is even worse. We're dealing with some crap like that at my kid's school. Only it's a teacher. It's been a shitty week.
