Civility Watchdog: June 16, 2016, Bill O'Reilly

Bill O'Reilly on Thursday said he wanted to "slap" Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.) for talking about gun control instead of terrorism in the aftermath of the Orlando nightclub attack.

"It just angers me. There's two separate issues: There's the terrorism, and there's the gun control. But what was it, Congressman Clyburn, is that his name?" the Fox News host said on "Fox and Friends," according to Politico.

"It's not about terrorism; it's about gun control," O'Reilly said, imitating Clyburn 's comments. "I just want to slap him," O'Reilly said, "with all due respect."
