Bill O'Reilly Defends Obama On Fox News And Fox News Hosts Don't Know What To Do

Bill O'Reilly shook things up Thursday morning and defended President Obama to a crew of his Fox News colleagues for what is now being called the infamous "Latte Salute" (#LatteSalute).

Obama was hit with criticism Wednesday when he was seen stepping off Marine One and saluting military officers with a coffee cup in his hand.

The "Fox & Friends" co-hosts were naturally very troubled by this. To their surprise though, Bill O'Reilly didn't seem to lose any sleep over it.

"Once in a while, you gotta cut him a little slack," O'Reilly said. "He didn't mean anything malevolent."

The "Fox & Friends" co-hosts weren't having that response, however, and pushed O'Reilly for a more typical O'Reilly response:

"Don't you think it's odd that he's going to the global warming summit with a styrofoam cup?" Steve Doocy asked.

"But you understand why it's bothering??" Hasselbeck followed up.

O'Reilly's response: "Don't sweat the small stuff."

Wait, did we hear that correctly?
