Bill O’Reilly questioned Donald Trump’s ability to provide jobs in African-American communities during an interview on Monday by painting black Americans as being ill-equipped for the labor force. “How are you going to get jobs for them?” O’Reilly asked. “Many of them are ill-educated and have tattoos on their foreheads, and I hate to be generalized about it but it’s true. If you look at the educational statistics, how are you going to give jobs to people who aren’t qualified for jobs?”
“Well, last time I checked, you don’t need a college degree to be shoveling sh*t,” the billionaire businessman responded, causing both of them to laugh. “Seriously though, there is a ton of jobs in our country where you don’t really need to use your brain. In fact, if you didn’t have one, you could still be doing something. For example, look at Kim Kardashian. She’s practically a zombie, and she still manages to earn thousands and thousands of dollars every day. So, you don’t really need a lot of brain power to be making money in this country.”
O’Reilly interjected, saying, “But, she’s hot. What are you to do if you have a tattoo on your forehead and a physique like Quasimodo?” “That’s easy – you join the circus. Even if you’re a freak, people will still pay good money to mock at you. And if you have a strong stomach, you can take all that and still make a ton of money. And not only that, you’ll have enough to pay your taxes. So, regardless of the color of your skin, your physical condition or possible absence of any brain activity, you can still have a job in America. I mean, just look at Obama,” Trump responded, causing even more laughs throughout the studio.
“Wait a minute, what about Mexicans, then?” O’Reilly added. Trump said, “What about them? They’re job-stealing idiots who are destroying the American economy, but at least they’re willing to go through the trouble of finding a job and sticking to it. At least they want to study and learn more and struggle for a better life. Black people don’t want any of that, they just want to steal stuff, do drugs and make rap music. As far as they’re concerned, Mexicans are white. They deserve a better life more than black people, regardless of the illegal means through which they’re attempting to achieve it. But, we can make jobs. We will make jobs. Anybody will be able to have any kind of job they want. They just have to make the right decision come November.”
