Bill O’Reilly: Jay-Z and Kanye West are a ‘Disease’

Bill O’Reilly, the best journalist ever according to Bill O’Reilly, knows why America’s youth is struggling: The dreaded rap music. Speaking to Valerie Jarrett, a senior advisor to President Obama, O’Reilly said that Jay-Z and Kanye West are a “disease” and simply need to “knock it off.”

“You have to attack the fundamental disease if you want to cure it,” said O’Reilly. “You’re gonna have to get people like Jay-Z, Kanye West — all these gangsta rappers — to knock it off.”

Lord knows that everything Jay has made since the Black Album has been trash and West’s Yeezus was awful, but we don’t exactly want them to stop creating music.

Maybe that’s not what O’Reilly meant. The Fox News host was definitely confused, as both Jay and West hardly qualify as “gangsta rappers.” So maybe O’Reilly was just rambling and tossed out the first two black people he could think of to blame for our nation’s problems. Yeah, that’s probably it.
