O’Reilly Goes There Again

Why is Bill O’Reilly bringing this up again? The video clip (above) comes from this very week of O’Reilly’s television program. Once again, sans evidence, O’Reilly claims that Barack Obama was born in the USA. (Oh, and the UN says red meat causes cancer and global warming.)
