Elizabeth Warren On Workplace Sexism: 'Bill O'Reilly, We Are Looking At You'


Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) called out disgraced former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly as proof that sexism in the workplace is a serious issue.

“Women know what it’s like to get paid less for doing the same job as a man. They know what it’s like to struggle with the skyrocketing cost of child care, know what it’s like to go to college where sexual assault is all too common and know what it’s like to have a sexist boss,” Warren said in a speech on Wednesday night. “And yes, Bill O’Reilly, we are looking at you.”

The senator was delivering the keynote address at an event hosted by EMILY’s List, a liberal PAC that works to help female Democrats get elected.

O’Reilly left Fox News last month amid allegations that he sexually harassed female coworkers. But his departure didn’t put criticism of the network to rest. Fox News is facing multiple lawsuits from women who say they experienced racism and sexism there for years.

Warren also issued a sharp rebuke of President Donald Trump, who has his own history of sexist remarks.

“If the next 3 years and 261 days are like Donald Trump’s first 100 days, I wonder if America will ever be ready for a male president again,” she quipped.
