Brzezinski called Trump's remarks about the Fox News Host "disgusting".
Meyers referred to instances when Trump has tweeted out headlines he had just seen on the network as if they were his own ideas, and his fandom of Fox News overall, going so far as to advertise for the network's shows via his Twitter account.
That this happened while Roger Ailes was running Fox News is, unfortunately, not in the least surprising.
Trump earlier in the day declared O'Reilly innocent of the allegations that prompted Fox to pay $13 million to settle complaints from women at the network, the New York Times reported.
"Bill really does set up their entire prime time", said Jonathan Klein, a former president of Fox News competitor CNN.
Just over 12 hours later, that number has almost doubled with The Huffington Post reporting that more than 40 advertisers have abandoned O'Reilly's sinking ship.
Although 23 advertisers have withdrawn their support and ads for The O'Reilly Factor on Fox News due to multiple allegations of sexual harrassment, the veteran backslapper has won support from friend Donald Trump.

Well aware of such concerns, Dugan stressed that Facebook is taking a measured approach to these new brain-computer interfaces. But Dugan did stress that Facebook isn't blindly pursuing technological advancement without considering the implications.
So, no, I don't expect Fox News or Rupert Murdoch, who controls FNC's parent company, to do the right thing here - unless it's in their self-interest. It needs to be stopped.
Mr. Trump on Wednesday defended Mr. O'Reilly as a "good person" who may have made a mistake in settling those sexual harassment claims.
This isn't Waters and O'Reilly's first public fight. She's supposed to be the one that is standing up for women. They need to go to jail. O'Reilly hasn't admitted any wrongdoing.
Courtesy of UltraVioletIf the words "loofah" and "falafel" both spark an unsettling image in your mind's eye, then Bill O'Reilly's current predicament probably won't surprise you. "I think she's very attractive".
"They are two of a kind", she added.
"Because you should have taken it all the way; I don't think Bill did anything wrong", Trump told reporters from the New York Times today, April 6. She went on to say "it's all catching up with Bill O'Reilly and that sexual harassment enterprise that they created over there at Fox".
