Former Fox News host Bill O'Reilly took to Twitter to slam the media for reporting "as truth" this week a Democratic congresswoman's description of a phone call between President Trump and the family of a solider killed in Niger.
"No proof needed for the media which immediately reported the Congresswoman's allegations as truth," O'Reilly wrote to his 2.31 million followers on Twitter.
O'Reilly followed with another tweet saying "this whole thing has the look of a setup."
O'Reilly also retweeted an earlier tweet by Trump on Wednesday denying claims by Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.). Trump said the congresswoman "totally fabricated" a claim that he was disrespectful to the wife of a U.S. soldier killed in action.
