Bill O’Reilly: Obama’s Refusal to Ban Flights from Ebola Countries is ‘Insane’

Bill O’Reilly, the host of Fox News’ “The O’Reilly Factor,” really can’t make sense of why Obama won’t ban flights from countries rife with Ebola outbreaks.

O’Reilly says that allowing flights from Ebola countries to keep landing here in the USA makes no sense.

Fox News Channel’s “The O’Reilly Factor” anchor Bill O’Reilly criticized the Obama administration’s refusal to ban flights from areas stricken with the Ebola virus on Friday.

“As we have seen with Thomas Duncan, the Liberian national in Dallas, Texas, screening cannot, cannot stop the movement of [sick] people because the incubation period for Ebola is up to three weeks. So far, at least 13 African countries are restricting people entry from the nations where Ebola is the problem. In addition, British Airways and Air France, among others have suspended flights to dangerous areas, but the USA has done nothing, nothing. Does that make sense you?” He wondered.

O’Reilly added that “a possible reason for the inaction is political correctness,” and played a clip of author David Quammen saying the US has an obligation to help Liberia because of slavery. O’Reilly responded “that’s insane. Insane.”

He is most certainly right on this one!
