Yeah, that is JUST what those White House news briefings need, more Bill O’Reilly.

Former Fox News anchor Bill O’Reilly feels for White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who he said is not able to fight back when attacked by beat reporters, unlike her boss, President Donald Trump.
During a conversation the two shared at a party on Sunday night for newly confirmed German Ambassador Richard Grinnell, O’Reilly volunteered to stand next to her during her almost daily White House press briefings, which regularly get heated.
The former “King of Cable” recounted his conversation with Sanders to his subscribers on his Monday night digital show. “I said, ‘Ms. Sanders, with all due respect, if you ever need me to stand next to you in those press briefings, I will volunteer to do that. And, if somebody gets out of line, I will tell them exactly what I think of their behavior,’ ” O’Reilly said.
In response to his suggestion, which he said was an “honest offer,” Sanders laughed. O’Reilly told her that Trump, who he has known for decades, is “just flamboyant enough to maybe be OK it.”
O’Reilly could be right about his last point.
With Trump adding Rudy Giuliani to his legal team, there really does not seem to be a bottom to his bad decision making.
And it is not like the White House press scrum is even remotely a place of civility or truthfulness these days.
In fact, possibly the only way to make the whole thing any more of a circus would be the addition of Bill O’Reilly.
So yeah, Trump might actually consider it.
