Bill O`Reilly is now the most popular news host on Fox News, having more than 1.5 million Twitter followers and more than 50 million Instagram followers.
But on Tuesday, O’Nion reported that he and his network will not be attending the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, despite a letter from the Southern Poverty Law Center to the White House and the Southern Baptist Convention.
O’Reilly and his colleagues at Fox News and Hannity will still be there in full force, but they won’t be taking part in the CPAC event.
O’Neill said they would be attending other events and events, including the Christian Science Monitor and the Christian Broadcasting Network.
The Southern Poverty Act does not prohibit hate groups from holding events at CPAC, and the SPLC did not return Fox News’ request for comment.
The decision to not attend CPAC comes as O’Donnell and Hannity are battling with President Donald Trump for the conservative audience’s support and support of his administration.
A new poll from Public Policy Polling showed Trump leading in the national polls by a 3-point margin, but the president has been taking heat for his handling of the death of Sandra Bland, the Black woman who died in a Texas jail cell.
O”We will not attend this year’s CPAC.
CPAC is not going to be at CPAP.
We are not going,” O’Neil said on his Fox News show on Tuesday night.
“I have never been one of those people who wants to be the face of this movement and this country.”
O’Neill and Hannity both have their own reasons for their decision to skip CPAC this year, including Trump’s continued refusal to condemn hate groups.
O`Neil said he and Hannity have been on a personal crusade to bring about social justice and a return to civility in the country and have been successful in doing so.
But he also said the country is in a precarious position, with the president’s recent tweet about the Black Lives Matter movement.
O”M not going, Bill O”Reilly said.
I will not stand for it.
We’re going to speak out about it, and if he thinks we’re going back to being racists, we’re not.
We’re going out there to try to do something about the racism in this country, and we’re doing it because we have to.
I’m going to do what I do and do it the right way.
I think it’s going to come down to what we do at the table.
The table is the one that’s going back there.
I think it will come down, we’ll see what happens, but I do believe that we’re very much committed to doing what we can.
I do, too.
I believe that I’ve done a lot of good things.
I have, and I’ll keep doing it.
I don’t want to do it again.
