Beto O’Rourke Shames Bill O’Reilly for Doubting Story About Woman Working 4 Jobs
Former Fox News’ host Bill O’Reilly attacked Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke on Tuesday but ended up with egg on his face when O’Rourke successfully disproved his criticism. O’Rourke claimed that he had met a woman working four jobs while raising a child with special needs. O’Reilly didn’t believe it.
Beto says he met a woman working FOUR jobs. And raising a special needs child. I don’t believe him. Sorry.

Unfortunately for O’Reilly, O’Rourke had evidence to support his story. The former Texas congressman posted a photo of himself with the woman and her daughter and used the opportunity to take a swipe at O’Reilly, who left Fox News following a sexual harassment settlement.
“The problem with our economy is she has to live in her car—while a disgraced TV host like you makes millions,” O’Rourke said.
This is her. Her name is Gina. Her daughter's name is Summer. The problem with our economy is she has to live in her car—while a disgraced TV host like you makes millions. https://t.co/J1Scsu3GJ5 pic.twitter.com/W1shXxVyeg

O’Rourke’s digital director called O’Reilly an ‘asshole‘ while Twitter users piled on to the former TV personality.
O’Reilly reportedly paid at least $45 million to settle several claims of sexual harassment during his time at Fox News.
