Jon Lovitz chatted with Bill OReilly on Wednesday about Lovitzs profane comments about President Obama.
OReilly pegged the remarks as disrespectful acknowledging Lovitzs perspective, but asserting that anyone in the office of the presidency deserves to be respected.
You were kind of disrespectful, OReilly said. Do you feel bad about that?
No, because you have to put it in context, Lovitz replied, specifying that hes a comedian, and the nature of that is to be just open and honest. What you cant say on television, you can say in a private club, he said.
OReilly agreed, but noted that in todays day and age, everythings instantly shared online. Even though hes sympathetic, he said, I want the presidency, the office to be respected. I dont want those people using those kinds of terms to describe any president. Do you see my point?

Ted Baxter can shut his populist pie hole.
Just to call this impostor "President" is an insult to every American who ever lived.
This anti-American muslim, illegal alien, traitor deserves no respect!
how can you disrespect a forger, fraud, usurper communist.
Øbama is a piece of $#1t.
with all due respect to small pieces of excrement.
The BOR is still drinking the Flavor-Aid I see.
O’Really being O’Really—hey, Bill, Obama can k-ss my a$$.
I haven’t watched Bill O’Reilly since 2004 when he said the Swift Boat vets had no right to be heard. I can’t imagine why any conservative would.
I have to say (even though I probably agree with stuff he said about 0bama, although probably not the terminology), I tire of people hiding behind the "comedian" label who use all the finesse of a jackhammer in a sandbox when dealing with politics and claim "comedy" when they commit the second sin of not even being funny about it. (And "foul" just makes it worse.)
It's right there with newspeople who can't decide if they're reporters or commentators or editorializers, or all of the above at the same time.
If you read the whole article, Jon Lovitz caves in to O’Reilly. Another worthless “entertainer.”
BO is such a putz!
O’Reilly is Mr PC. He is arrogant, pompous, and annoying.
I make it a habit to not watch his show because he is a loudmouth and believes his opinion is the only one with merit. In short, he is an idiot not worth my time.
An old Navy E-9 Chief Petty Officer told me when I was an Ensign that “you had to give respect to receive it.”. While I greatly respect a Commanding Officer position, if he or she (now) didn’t deserve respect I couldn’t give it to the person!
You’ll be getting hate mail from toilets all over the country.
Hey Bill! If you think Lovitz was disrespectful you should come and talk to me and my buds!
I quit even before that. Still can’t understand the respect some here on FR still give the blowhard!
I stopped watching Bill O’Reilly a Year ago....
I havent missed a thing.
He interupts every Guest and barks out His opinions as if they trump any of his Guest’s.
He is a pompous Turd sniffer.
