Fox News host Bill O'Reilly was not too happy about the Supreme Court's rulings on DOMA and Proposition 8 (and, for that matter, Obamacare), railing against how "the Supreme Court has put aside its mandate to uphold the Constitution," and has "morphed into a political organization," finding "loopholes" in the Prop 8 and Obamacare cases to get the desired result.

O'Reilly got particularly angry when talking with Fox News analyst Juan Williams, calling Chief Justice John Roberts' opinion that the backers of Proposition 8 had no standing to appeal the case "just absurd."

Williams argued that in cases like Prop 8 and Obamacare, Roberts "made a decision based on what he thought was in the political best interest of the Court."

"That's not his job!" O'Reilly exploded. "That's not his job, Juan!"

Here's the video. The interview with Williams begins at around 4:25:
