Former Fox News star Bill O'Reilly attacked Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke on Twitter Tuesday night, accusing the former Texas Representative of lying after he shared an example of the plight of the working poor in the United States.

O'Reilly tweeted:


"Beto says he met a woman working FOUR jobs. And raising a special needs child. I don’t believe him. Sorry."

In response to O'Reilly's tweet, Beto O'Rourke shared a photo of himself with the woman he spoke of. He also had a more personal response for O'Reilly.

O'Rourke posted:

"The problem with our economy is she has to live in her car—while a disgraced TV host like you makes millions."

O'Reilly's career at Fox News ended in April 2017 when after an exposé by The New York Times lead to the disclosure of a "series of sexual harassment allegations against him and an internal investigation that turned up even more." O'Reilly and the company had already paid settlements to 5 women at the time of his firing from Fox.

People let O'Reilly know they remember his history with honesty and why he no longer works at Fox News.

Although some O'Reilly supporters decided to attack the woman O'Rourke spoke of, but were met with swift opposition.

Some offered O'Reilly advice on how he could be more in touch with the reality for many workers in the United States.

Or just advice in general.

While one person pointed out the wealth inequality present in the United States.

O'Rourke is part of the remaining field of Democratic presidential nominees. As of Wednesday, October 16, the 2020 presidential election is 383 days away.

Attorney General William Barr criticized President Donald Trump's tweets about Justice Department prosecutors' sentencing recommendation for Trump ally Roger Stone.

Barr—who overrode the recommendation after Trump railed against it on Twitter—said Trump's tweets made it impossible to do his job, though some people believe his words weren't to rein in Trump, but to mitigate public outrage.

Fox Host Lou Dobbs is not one of those people.

People cried foul earlier this week when the Justice Department overrode four career prosecutors to recommend a reduced sentence for former Trump campaign advisor Roger Stone.

The Department's decision came only a day after Trump railed against the prosecutors' recommendation on Twitter, leading many to believe the Department reduced the sentence recommendation because the President interceded on his ally's behalf.

All four prosecutors on the case resigned in response to the change.
