Bill O’Reilly Clashes with Valerie Jarrett over ‘Gangsta’ Culture
Mediaite ^ | February 27, 2014 | Josh Feldman

Posted on 02/27/2014 6:26:04 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Bill O’Reilly faced off with White House senior advisor Valerie Jarrett Thursday night over President Obama‘s “My Brother’s Keeper” initiative, and they tussled over the “gangsta” culture O’Reilly argued holds plenty of young people back and what the White House can do to help stem problems like teenage pregnancy and the collapse of the family unit. O’Reilly told Jarrett he doesn’t think the Obama administration sees the “urgency” of many of these problems,” and told her that “you’re going to have to get people like Jay-Z, Kanye West, all of these gangsta rappers, to knock it off.”

O’Reilly argued it’s a problem when young black boys idolize “these guys with the hats on backwards” and “terrible rap lyrics” and drug use, and told Jarrett Obama has the power to “reverse the peer pressure.” Jarrett agreed that it’s important to have great “role models” for young people, but O’Reilly insisted, “You got to get them in there to tell these kids that you’ve got to stop the disruptive behavior or you’re going to wind up in a morgue or in prison.”

O’Reilly also said Michelle Obama should come on his show and say to the young women of America that getting pregnant at a young age is dangerous and wrong. Jarrett said it’s more important to talk to young girls directly rather than going on TV, but O’Reilly insisted it would get loads of attention from a wide audience.

Jarrett told O’Reilly there are encouraging signs, that the boys at the White House today “were at risk last year” and now “they’re standing tall and doing well in school.”

O’Reilly also grilled Jarrett about Obama’s worsening poll numbers. Jarrett acknowledged the “challenging time” the White House has been through, but said Obama has never focused on the daily polling numbers.”

I was surprised to see Lizard Lady on BOR. I listened to about the first 1/2 of their conversation.

So, Michelle is going to have some five or six million one on ones? Sounds good to me.

It isn’t getting pregnant at a young age that is “dangerous and wrong. “
It is getting pregnant unmarried to the prospective father.

Why was bill screwing around throwing softball questions around the “first lizard in chief”?

Why not ask her some real damn questions, she is one of the major power plays in this admin afterall...

If BO has moooooochele on his show will there be enough room for the truck loads of snacks she will need and will she be able to talk with her mouth full of lobster tail and french fries?

I think lizard lady has to make the occasional public appearance otherwise she won’t see her own shadow and we will have 6 more months of Gore-bull warning...

She has Secret Service protection for some reason. I worked for the late General Al Haig. He was the de facto president during the worst of Watergate as the White House Chief of Staff and he never has a detail.

They are trying to make nice with Fox because that is the only station even remotely reporting what Lizard Lady and her gang are doing to America.

Strange that. I would have had the headline say “O’Reilly kisses Jarret, Michelle and Obama’s Ass on Fox News.”

I’m afraud what O’Reilly is asking for won’t work — there is too much emotional inertia to turn Rap around.

Recall that it was Richard Pryor who popularized the use of the word “Nigger” by blacks with his comedy album “That Nigger is Crazy”. Several years later, he took a trip to Africa.

When he came back to the US, and explained that he discovered that there lots of black Africans there, but there weren’t any “Niggers”. So he cleaned up his comedy routines to not use the word any more.

His comedy flopped without the word, so he had to go back to using it.

If all the rappers stopped rapping about sex and violence, they would lose their popularity, and new rappers would take their place with the same stuff.

He should have nailed her on her real estate dealings in Chicago. How she took advantage of. Made millions from the substandard housing she rented to HER people

I wasn't surprised. He seems intent on butt-kissing Obozo's entire entourage.

She has secret service protection because she is the real President. And Bam knows that if she goes, he’s screwed.

Bor is such a pandering, misguided fool...the Lizard wiped the floor with him - just like obama did. Someone needs to put Bor in protective custody before he becomes a complete puppet for the White House.

Bill just couldn’t get over himself that he was at that WH thing today. I always have to change the channel when he starts bloviating about how great he is. Jarrett was a slick, trained rat. Smarmy as the rest of them.

anyone know if that was a FIRST? Valerie Jarrett on FOX NEWS?

I don't recall ever seeing her on, and surly that was a first for O’Reilly, ya think?

Just wondering.

I turned him OFF when I heard he was invited to this photo ops for president and his ‘kids of color’ scheme..enough all ready. but your correct Bill's head was ready to burst.

more waste of money, regardless business or taxpayer dollars.

I'm more interested in what Putin/Russia have going on, and Venezuela becoming very scary, and our Military get slashed.

It's interesting that BOR interviewed Barack's real brain. That said, BOR was his normal sissified, bloviating self, and Valerie skated. BOR is totally in the tank for BHO and Valerie knows it.
