Stephen Colbert and Alter-Ego Say Goodbye To Bill O'Reilly

Stephen Colbert and his 'Colbert Report' alter-ego say goodbye to Fox News' Bill O'Reilly.

"It's like looking at your front yard and the big oak tree is just gone," he says. "And sure the oak tree said some disturbing things about young black men what with their rap music and neck tattoos but damn it, the tree had been there forever and your grandpa would just sit there and stare at it."

"And then the tree would try to sell your grandpa gold coins and self-lubricating catheters."

"And Fox issued an official statement about O'Reilly's dismissal this afternoon. I think they just took Roger Ailes letter and changed the nouns."

"They celebrated Bill O'Reilly's career saying, by ratings standards, he is one of the most accomplished TV personalities in the history of cable news."

"But by moral standards, he was a self-righteous landfill of angry garbage," Colbert snapped back.

He then brought back his Comedy Central alter-ego to "stand up" for O'Reilly and invited him to come live on a cabin with him and Jon Stewart.

"Nation, shame on you! You failed him, you failed Bill O'Relly. You didn't deserve this great man," he said. "What, suddenly sexual harassment is a crime?"

"But that's the country we live in now…I guess I always knew this day would come. When I first saw Bill on TV, I knew no one could possibly sustain such a broad character for that long."

Before ending his monologue, Colbert reminded viewers: "In case you're a fan of sexual harassers who are on TV all the time, you still have Donald Trump."
