Pelosi: O'Reilly Insulted Obama With 'Hate' Question

Monday, 07 Feb 2011 02:52 PM

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi is outraged that Fox News anchor Bill O'Reilly asked President Barack Obama about the people who "hate" him, calling it “completely inappropriate” for the leader of the free world to be asked such a question.

The California Democrat said the question made her wince.

"Just seeing it again . . . I thought was a completely inappropriate question, of course beautifully handled by the president," Pelosi told host Gayle King on the Oprah Radio network, The Hill reported.

O'Reilly's question has been one of the most replayed on Monday, according to The Hill.

"Does it disturb you that so many people hate you?" O'Reilly asked Obama.

"The people who dislike you don't know you," Obama responded. "The folks who hate you don't know you; what they hate is whatever funhouse mirror image of you is out there."
