'Shut Up!': O’Reilly, Colmes Spar Over Tsarnaev Welfare Benefits
On Tuesday’s ‘Factor,’ Alan Colmes and Monica Crowley reacted to reports that the Tsarnaev family received $100,000 in welfare benefits in the time they lived in the United States. Things got heated between Colmes and O’Reilly after Colmes said, “I think this is manufactured outrage to go after people who are on welfare, go after immigrants.”
Colmes stressed that at the time, we had no way of knowing that Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev would become terrorists. “We didn’t have a time machine back then,” he said.
O’Reilly interrupted, “Wait, Colmes. Shut up, shut up. Alright. Driving a Mercedes-Benz automobile and getting welfare – that’s OK?!”
Colmes pointed out that the Mercedes-Benz was old ... much to O’Reilly’s frustration.
“The bottom line is this: there is no supervision over any of this. No supervision on asylum, no supervision on welfare payments. You can con the system. Yet you wouldn’t do anything about it!” O’Reilly charged.
