video: NEW: Chafee Wars With Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly Over RI’s ‘Holiday Tree’

Friday, November 30, 2012


Fox News' Bill O'Reilly sparred with Rhode Island Governor Linc Chafee about the "Holiday Tree" that was quietly lit yesterday at noon in Providence's Kennedy Plaza.

Who wins this war of the words? O'Reilly, catching Chafee out for being wrong about the White House's tree being a Christmas Tree? Or Chafee, for telling O'Reilly, "Fox News, you guys are too angry."

Or was it the "Merry Christmas" kiss-off from Chafee to O'Reilly?

You watch and decide.


Want your own holiday/Christmas tree for the season? Here's where to go.

What a sad excuse for leadership in a State with the highest percentage of Roman Catholics in the country...:'(

Howdy Doody was taken to the wood shed by Bill O'Reilly. Comparing Xmas tree with saying prayer in public schools (back in the day) is ludicrous. One is clearly religious; the other is completely secular. This guy is in so far above his head, he didn't even realize he would be skewered on national television thereby putting his idiocy on display for the all to see!

When did "Merry Christmas" become "F--k You?"

Let's hope Obama finds something for Chafee to do that will take him away from RI, anyone would be better and God knows RI needs a leader at this crisis time.
