Bill O’Reilly has said president Joe Biden should pardon his son Hunter and Donald Trump in order to heal the nation. 

The former Fox News star appeared on News Nation on Thursday to discuss Trump’s conviction in his New York hush money trial, and warned the verdict could bring ‘violence.’

‘President Biden should pardon Donald Trump of any and all crimes and suggest publicly that governor [Kathy] Hochul do the same thing,’ O’Reilly told Chris Cuomo.

‘And then … President Biden should pardon his son Hunter. That would throw the whole acrimonious system into absolute chaos.’

O’Reilly said that while Biden could ‘bring down the level of hatred… he won’t, because he doesn’t have the “fiber” of Gerald Ford.’

President Ford famously pardoned his predecessor Richard Nixon in 1974 following his resignation from the White House.

The pundit then clarified there was no equivalency between the two legal cases: ‘I’m not measuring [Hunter] Biden against Trump. I’m telling Biden what’s best for the country.

Hunter Biden currently faces federal charges for possessing a pistol for 11 days after lying about his drug use. He’s also accused of evading $1.4 million in federal income taxes.

Aside from his conviction on Thursday, Trump is facing a federal trial in Florida over classified documents found in his home. He’s also facing trials in DC and Georgia for trying to overturn the 2020 election.

O’Reilly also put the jury system into question, recalling how it worked for OJ Simpson in the infamous 1994 double murder trial. 

‘The jury system isn’t infallible… they’re human beings, they carry prejudices and bias into the court room,’ he said.

O’Reilly also went after Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, saying the case against Trump ‘is not the Teapot Dome scandal. It’s not Watergate. It’s not even Monica Lewinsky and Bill Clinton.’

‘We all know this is a low-level beef,’ he added.

Trump’s conviction on 34 felony counts marks the end of the former president’s historic hush money trial, but the fight over the case is far from over.

Now comes the sentencing and the potential for a prison sentence. A lengthy appellate process. And all the while, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee still has to deal with three more criminal cases and a campaign that could see him return to the White House.

After more than nine hours of deliberations over two days, the Manhattan jury found Trump guilty of falsifying business records in the case stemming from a hush money payment to porn actor Stormy Daniels during his 2016 presidential campaign.

The Biden campaign issued its own statement not long after the verdict. 'In New York today, we saw that no one is above the law,' communications director Michael Tyler said

Trump angrily denounced the trial as a ‘disgrace,’ telling reporters he’s an ‘innocent man.’

‘In New York today, we saw that no one is above the law,’ communications director Michael Tyler said.

‘Donald Trump has always mistakenly believed he would never face consequences for breaking the law for his own personal gain.

‘But today’s verdict does not change the fact that the American people face a simple reality. There is still only one way to keep Donald Trump out of the Oval Office: at the ballot box.

‘Convicted felon or not, Trump will be the Republican nominee for president.’

By contrast, the White House kept its distance: ‘We respect the rule of law, and have no additional comment.’

Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg thanked the jury of 12 who convicted Donald Trump, crediting his team of prosecutors while refusing to say whether he would seek prison time for the former president who has relentlessly attacked him.

‘I did my job. Our job is to follow the facts and the law without fear or favor’ said Bragg, responding to criticism of the case.

Asked if his office would object to any effort by defense lawyers to stay a potential jail sentence for the former president – which experts call unlikely – Bragg responded, ‘I’m not going to address hypotheticals.’

Asked if his team would seek prison time for Trump, Bragg responded, ‘We will speak in our court filings as we’ve done throughout this proceeding,’ he said.
