Liberal New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has Bill O’Reilly seeing red – the FOX News anchor says he'd like to "beat him up."

O’Reilly got feisty at a Thursday fundraiser for a Catholic parish and school on Long Island after FOX News colleague Brian Kilmeade read a pre-selected audience question, Gawker reports.

"Have we reached the point where there are more people on the free ride — for example, the people on the free ride getting welfare — than those who are actually working for a living?" the question asked.

O'Reilly, after describing how he grew up in Levittown, noted: “Today, a lot of Americans, you know, 'Hey, gimme gimme gimme,' you know, they’re not willing to pay the price to succeed."

"It’s growing, I’m hoping we can reverse that, but it’s growing," he said.

Fellow FOX News host Megyn Kelly then added: "The thing is, you work so hard, and you finally start earning some money, and you have people like de Blasio telling you you’re not paying your fair share, that you’re somehow bad, that you need to pay more, and you haven’t earned it."

"I want to beat him up," O'Reilly declared, sparking applause from the crowd of 2,000 – and some encouragement from Kilmeade, who urged: "Give him a little Levittown!"

De Blasio dismissed the challenge, the New York Daily News reported.

“Stay classy, Bill,” his spokesman said.
