Rep. Maxine Waters cheered Bill O'Reilly's ouster from Fox News on Wednesday amid a sexual harassment scandal. She said the former host suffers from a psychological ailment and needs help.
During an interview on CNN, the California Democrat said that, despite the longtime success of his evening talkshow program, O'Reilly is "not going to be recorded favorably in history."
"Unfortunately, he was a man who made tremendous sums of money, had a huge show and really there's something wrong with him psychologically. He obviously could not sustain relationships," Waters said.
She added that she hopes O'Reilly seeks some help and hopes the women who accused O'Reilly of sexual harassment "feel good about the justice they are receiving."
An investigation by the New York Times a a couple weeks found either O'Reilly or Fox News' parent company, 21st Century Fox, paid five women a total of $13 million in exchange for agreeing to not pursue litigation or speak about their accusations of sexual harassment or other types of inappropriate behavior.
