5 Crazy Right-Wing Moments This Week: O'Reilly Drops Truth Bomb on Palin and Trump

Wingnut conservatives are turning on one another and eating their young!

1. In her first offical act as “serious” 2016 presidential contender Sarah Palin declares war (on Bill O'Reilly).

It's extremely lonely being Sarah Palin, lonely at the outer lunatic fringe of the right-wing universe. There are the voices stringing together those non sequiturs in her head, of course, but where are her Fox News friends? They're faux friends, that's what they are.

After the universally ridiculed stream of nonsense that issued from Sarah Palin at last weekend's conservative confab in Iowa, she came out swinging during an appearance on “Hannity.” Sean Hannity, it should be noted, is apparently conservative enough for Palin. That's a relief. But O'Reilly, who dared question her seriousness about a possible run for president in 2016? He's trouble.

“There needs to be unity, understanding,” Palin told Hannity. “Conservatives have that strike against us right off the bat, that being the media. Even there on Fox, you know, kind of a quasi- or assumed conservative outlet … and soon we have all day listening to the tease of Bill O’Reilly’s.” 

Hmmm, did Roger Ailes get the memo about the “quasi-conservative” operation he's running? Someone should really tell him. Palin then spewed some more sentence fragments that made sense to her:

“[O'Reilly]’s talking about the guests on his show tonight, the commentary on his show, and that would be, ‘All these GOP contenders thinking about running for president, like Donald Trump, Sarah Palin,’ and he named some others — and he said, ‘Oh, what a reality show that would be, yuck yuck. Well the left doesn’t do that, okay? They take this serious [sic] — because this is war. And hopefully the media — even the quasi-right side of the media — won’t be looking at this as some kind of reality show, a joke.”

Hope away, Sarah. They all see you as a joke. All of them. Every last one of them.

2. Donald Trump declares war on Bill O'Reilly's “journalism.”

Donald Trump? Did someone say Donald Trump? Nothing gets Trump's attention like his own name.
