Bill O’Reilly must have been smoking something or missed a few history classes. According to him, the slaves who built the White House lived a pretty good life and had no reason to complain.
Yes, folks. You can’t make this stuff up.
“In addition, free blacks, white and immigrants also worked on the massive building,” he said. “Michelle Obama is essentially correct in citing slaves as builders of the White House, but there were others working as well.”
O’Reilly was of course referring to the First Lady’s DNC speech where she mentioned she was living in a house built by slaves.
But let’s be real here. There was nothing good about slavery, whether O’Reilly chooses to believe that or not. Housing and being fed was the bare minimum. Yes, a hut? If that’s what you call housing? Or have leftover slops from the “big house”. Ohh..lucky those slaves.
Once again O’Reilly proved that he’s an imbecile.
