Jake Tapper roasts Bill O’Reilly after the ex-Fox News host taunts CNN’s ratings
Seemingly unprovoked, O’Reilly tweeted about former colleague Sean Hannity’s ratings compared to Tapper’s.
“Sean Hannity kicking serious butt in the ratings. Tapper on CNN as low as you can go,” O’Reilly wrote.

Tapper’s response was savage.
“‘Low’ would be sexually harassing staffers and then getting fired for it—humiliated in front of the world. Now THAT would be low,” Tapper wrote.

O’Reilly was let go from Fox News amid sexual assault allegations. Fox News paid out more than $13 million in settlements in regards to the allegations and O’Reilly was not allowed to back onto his former prime-time show The O’Reilly Factor after returning from a vacation.
Oh, and in case you were wondering, comparing the ratings of The Lead and Hannity is pointless anyway–they air at different times. Tapper’s show is at 4pm ET and Hannity’s airs at 9pm.
