One of the biggest stories to land in the headlines over the weekend was the New York Times report that found that Fox News host Bill O'Reilly had reached a $13 million settlement with five women who accused him of sexual assault. After Donald Trump came to his defense, one Democratic congresswoman decided to speak out.

Waters on O'Reilly

The New York Times released their bombshell story over the weekend, which claimed Bill O'Reilly had been accused of sexual assault and used his wealth to silence his accusers. The news has since resulted in massive backlash, leading to the likes of Allstate, Mercedes, and Hyundai from pulling their advertisements from "The O'Reilly Factor" on Fox News.

During an exclusive interview with the paper earlier this week, Donald Trump addressed the issue, referring to O'Reilly as a "good man," while expressing doubt that the allegations ever took place. These issues were brought up during the April 8 edition of "All In with Chris Hayes" on MSNBC.

Joining MSNBC host Chris Hayes was Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters who didn't hold back her thoughts on Donald Trump and Bill O'Reilly. It was just last week when O'Reilly came under fire for making what many believed to be a racially charged remark about Waters, and now the congresswoman is speaking out. "I'm not surprised that he (Trump) stood up and tried to defend Bill O'Reilly," Waters said, before labeling the two men as "two of a kind" for contributing to the "sexual enterprise" at Fox News.

"It shouldn’t be in America that you can sexually harass women and then buy your way out of it because you’re rich," Maxine Waters went on to say, noting that "they need to go to jail" if they continue to act in that manner that they have.

"The president’s over there talking today about Susan Rice going to jail. They need to go to jail," she continued, before once again noting, "Bill O’Reilly needs to go to jail." Trump's defense of the Fox News host comes just five months after he was accused of sexual assault by 12 women heading into Election Day.

As of press time, Bill O'Reilly has kept quiet on the issue, letting only his legal team speak out and deny the allegations.

With the exception of the comments made during the New York Times interview, Donald Trump has not issued any further remarks, and neither man has responded to the statement made by Maxine Waters.
