O'Reilly: Obama Won't Blame Putin For Downed Plane

“Obama is ordering burgers medium-well while the world is falling apart."

On the O'Reilly Factor, Bill O'Reilly blasted Barack Obama for attending fundraisers once again while a crisis was breaking out.

"Tonight, Mr. Obama is here in New York raising money," O'Reilly said, adding, "In the five-and-a-half years that he has been in office, Mr. Obama has attended 395 fundraisers, as opposed to the 338 fundraisers that President Bush attended in his eight years in office." 

In O'Reilly's discussion with Kate Obenshain and James Carville, Obenshain said, “Obama is glad-handing, ordering burgers medium-well while the world, frankly, is falling apart in other regions."

On his Talking Points Memo, O'Reilly said that nothing would be done to Vladimir Putin despite his involvement in the attack.

"Of course Vladimir Putin is supplying these heavy weapons to the terrorists, so he is directly responsible. Bet you don't hear European leaders or President Obama say that, but it's true," O'Reilly said. "Russia is trying to undermine Ukraine and is giving weapons to killers, no question about it."

O'Reilly argued that the West was too cowed to take on Putin.

"Over the next few days you will hear the usual calls for investigations and meetings and talks and discussions. But little will happen to Putin because the West is essentially afraid of him and he knows it."

"Meantime, the families and friends of 298 human beings grieve tonight. Is Putin grieving?" O'Reilly asked.
