A snippet of video is making the rounds on Twitter Thursday shows Bill O'Reilly whacking somebody with his umbrella after the Fox News star was asked whether he had attended a Newt Gingrich's fundraiser in D.C on Wednesday night. The fundraiser at the Willard InterContinental hotel was nearby, but Mediaite reports O'Reilly wasn't at it -- rather he was heading to a White House Christmas party. The description of the clip posted by Right Wing Watch says O'Reilly tried to press charges against his would-be interviewer, and while he does talk to a cop in the video, you can't understand what he's saying. Maybe he's just asking where to buy a new umbrella after breaking his on that guy's camera.
