On Monday evening's edition of "The O'Reilly Factor," Fox News personality Greg Gutfeld was supposed to fill in for Mr. Bill O'Reilly himself who was off for the evening. But the eponymous host was too upset about the murder of two NYPD officers to stay away. So he called in to his own show.

O'Reilly was rightfully appalled by the murders, noting that he hopes gunman Ismaaiyl Brinsley is enjoying hell right now. He then said that protesters who chanted, "We want dead cops," are responsible for aiding and abetting Brinsley. But the true villain is neither one of these parties, says O'Reilly. The true villain is New York City's Mayor Bill de Blasio.

"Bill de Blasio, as I said, is incompetent. He was elected in an election in New York City where few people voted, he's a machine politician, and he is an anti-police individual. Now he's in trouble, now he's trying to backtrack, but he has been anti-police his whole career. Who's his best friend? Al Sharpton. Al Sharpton, a racial provocateur, an anti-cop individual, de Blasio's best friend. That says it all ... This is an individual who should resign today, today. He cannot run this city. He's lost the control of the police department and the respect. He will never come back, no matter what he says because he sided with the protesters. That's what he did. And he associated with provocateurs and he has disgraced the office of mayor of New York City."
