O'Reilly has seen his show lose advertisers, but not necessarily viewers, since a New York Times report on Saturday detailed payouts totaling about $13 million to five women to settle claims of sexual harassment and other inappropriate behavior.

While dozens of brands have said they're pulling ads from Fox News Channel's "The O'Reilly Factor" because of harassment allegations against its host, others remain to court the biggest audience on cable television news.

"They need to go to jail", Waters exclaimed.

The veteran Fox News host of the "The O'Reilly Factor" is in hot water these days but his loyal followers stuck with him during his days of trials.

Trump's defense of O'Reilly comes less than a year after tapes surfaced of him speaking on grabbing women by the private parts and how easy it was to get away with due to his fame. She now has scores of newfound fans across the US, but O'Reilly and Trump might not be among them.

This prompted Congresswoman Maxine Waters, D-California, to lash out at the two and the "sexual harassment enterprise" Fox News in an NBC interview Wednesday night.

She also told Hayes that she was concerned about what the president might be telling foreign leaders, as well as his perceived lack of knowledge about global affairs. Despite accusations of sexual harassment, the show recorded an increase in viewership.

"It's coming out of the mouth of a man who has said some frightful things about women", Waters said of Trump's comments.

Boston-based Wayfair and Waltham-based Constant Contact are pulling advertisements from Fox News" "The O'Reilly Factor, ' following allegations of sexual harassment surfacing against the show's host, Bill O'Reilly. The company normally doesn't advertise on shows that do political commentary, and it has suspended all of its Fox ads until it can be sure none are shown on O'Reilly's show, a spokesman said.

On Wednesday, the pugnacious conservative received the endorsement of Fox's most highly placed fan, President Donald Trump, who called O'Reilly "a good person" in an interview with the Times on Wednesday. "And so I understand the Justice Department has opened a case, they're taking a look at them. And so, I just want you to know that the president didn't do himself any good standing up for Bill O'Reilly".
