WATCH: Bill O'Reilly rants against Obama's APEC tunic, would have 'set it on fire'

If he were at APEC, American talk show host Bill O'Reilly would have told Xi Jinping to take his country's costume and shove it where the sun don't shine (i.e. Hebei). On a side note, that may be why O'Reilly isn't invited to such events.

The O'Reilly Factor piece begins with quotes from the Global Times, which is essentially the Fox News of China. Perhaps angry that they copied his schtick, O'Reilly leaps to the president's defense against "The Chinese." He quickly moves on from the GT article and focuses on "the little tunic they have," the idea that all foreign dignitaries wear garb presented by the host country (as George Bush did, of course). 

O'Reilly is joined by a man who seems to be perpetually on the edge of referring to the country as "RED CHINA," and who wonders "if the president really needed to do that [i.e. wear the APEC clothes]." He goes on to say that "Chinese culture" makes the Chinese government see Obama as weak, because he isn't using America's new aircraft carriers all of the time.

They both reach the conclusion that, if the Global Times prints critical articles about Obama, then the president should have just burned the "tunic" as soon as it was handed to him, hopped back on Air Force One and flown back to 'Murica.
