A week after O’Reilly called Aniston “destructive to society” for playing a single mom in The Switch, he took aim Friday at Kardashian and Bieber, who recently posed together by the beach for an Elle magazine photo shoot.
Joking that Kardashian is “42,” (she’s 29) and that Bieber, 16, “looks like Ringo Starr,” the O’Reilly Factor host wondered if the The Graduate/”Mrs. Robinson” themed pics were appropriate.
“I think it’s gross,” Republican strategist Margaret Hoover said during the chat. “It’s a 16 year-old having an affair with a celebutante!”
Panelist Rebecca Diamond argued: “It’s every sixteen-year-old male’s dream to have pictures with Kim Kardashian.”
O’Reilly, 60, claimed that he wasn’t interested in sexy older women when he was Bieber’s age. “I wanted to be a baseball player [when I was 16],” he said. “I didn’t want to hang around with Kim Kardashian…I had a baseball bat and a bat and [a pair of] ice skates! That’s what I was doing.”
Suggesting a double standard at work, O’Reilly finally noted, “I will tell you this: If a 16-year-old girl was pictured with a 29-year-old man in any of that, he’d be in big trouble.“
