Don Lemon Fires Back At Bill O'Reilly Over Covering Harassment Accusations

21st Century Fox said in a statement obtained by the Times that O'Reilly "denies the merits of these claims".

"I think he's a person I know well - he is a good person", said Mr. Trump, who during the interview was surrounded at his desk by a half-dozen of his highest-ranking aides, including the economic adviser Gary Cohn and the chief of staff, Reince Priebus, along with Vice President Mike Pence.

Now, if Trump's take sounds like the sort of thing a president shouldn't say just days after giving a speech about preventing sexual assault, you might be on to something.

Trump said that he didn't think O'Reilly should have settled with the women involved. Trump similarly denied all the allegations, saying "the events never happened", and once calling his accusers "horrible liars".

The O'Reilly post pushed audiences to a short snippet of a Lemon segment from the previous evening, one in which the anchor promises to not "aid and abet" those trying to misinform the American people through claims that Donald Trump or his team had been surveilled, or spied upon. "And when you're a star, they let you do it, you can do anything". The worst part of my job is being a target for those who would harm me and my employer, the Fox News Channel. Hyundai said early Tuesday that it is not now advertising on "The O'Reilly Factor" but will remove upcoming ads because of the "recent and disturbing allegations". The National Organization for Women has called for him to be fired. Visit for more information on this news. But neither the company nor O'Reilly have addressed the matter since Saturday, when the New York Times first revealed the extent of settlements paid to O'Reilly's accusers.

Human Rights Commission spokesman Seth Hoy said he could not comment.

21st Century Fox is also under federal investigation over its handling of payments made to women who accused Ailes of sexual harassment.
