Trump Backs O'Reilly After Harassment Claims: 'I Don't Think He Did Anything Wrong'

After allegations came out that Fox News host Bill O'Reilly settled four cases of sexual harassment, advertisers began pulling out in droves. One person still standing by the conservative talk show host is President Donald Trump. Some women are outraged.

A New York Times report says that O'Reilly and Fox News has settled at least four sexual harassment cases quietly for a total of $13 million. Women have accused the prime time talk show host of has been accused of verbal abuse, of using his position of power to pursue a relationship with female Fox employees and of lewd acts, such as calling one woman while he was masturbating. He reportedly told the same woman to buy a vibrator and described his sexual fantasies to her.

O'Reilly has denied the allegations and Fox News appears to be backing the host. He has been resigned since the allegations, has not been suspended since they came to light, and there is no word at this time on the network taking any disciplinary actions against O'Reilly.

Advertisers, on the other hand, are quickly pulling out of the host's show, 'The O'Reilly Factor'. Since the news broke last week, at least 50 major advertisers have pulled out, including Advil, Jenny Craig, Ancestry.com and numerous automobile manufacturers.

One person standing by O'Reilly is President Donald Trump. Mr. Trump, who has also been accused of sexually harassing women, told the New York Times, "I don't think Bill did anything wrong."

The POTUS believes O'Reilly shouldn't have settled and should have taken the case 'all the way'.

Rebecca Diamond, one of the women who settled with O'Reilly, tweeted the president to notify him that women at Fox are forced into settlements because the company requires them to sign agreements that prohibit them from litigation against the company.

"I'm saddened reading your comments. Truly disappointed and vilified all over again. Such comments tell women they won't be believed," Diamond wrote.
