Maxine Waters Believes Bill O'Reilly 'Needs To Go To Jail' For Harassing Women


Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters told Chris Hayes on MSNBC’s All In that she believed Fox News host Bill O'Reilly deserved to be in jail for his attacks against women that ended up in an over $13 million pay out to five different women. The report about O'Reilly's sexual harassment lawsuits were released on Saturday, according to The Hill, in which he was accused of  "verbal abuse, unwanted advances, lewd comments and indecent phone calls."

On that Wednesday preceding Waters' interview, Donald Trump defended Bill O'Reilly, calling him "a good person" and saying he shouldn't have settled, but taken those cases to court because "he didn't do anything wrong." Waters reminded Hayes that these are the words of a man who openly told people he grabs women by the private parts and was able to get away with it because he's famous.  She groups O'Reilly and Trump's behavior in together, saying, “They have treated women very badly. This really is a sexual harassment enterprise. They need to go to jail. Bill O’Reilly needs to go to jail. It shouldn’t be in America that you can sexually harass women and buy your way out of it because you’re rich.”
