The comedians first unloaded on O'Reilly Monday after The New York Times reported that he paid a $32 million settlement to former Fox News legal analyst Lis Wiehl after she accused him of sending her sexually explicit material, as well as made allegations of "repeated harassment" and a "nonconsensual sexual relationship" with O'Reilly. He reportedly settled the claim in January with the multi-million dollar payout, before his contract at Fox News was renewed.
On Tuesday, the late-night hosts dropped more comedic grievances to air.
According to Trevor Noah, "Bill O'Reilly is over because now anyone can win an argument against him by just saying '$32 million.'"
In a recorded interview with The New York Times, O'Reilly gave an explanation Noah described as rather "odd."
"This is crap, and you know it," O'Reilly said. "It's politically and financially motivated, and we can prove it with shocking information, but I'm not going to sit here there in a courtroom for a year and a half and let my kids get beaten up every single day of their lives by a tabloid press who can sit there, and you know it."
"So let me get this straight," Noah said, confused by O'Reilly's comments. "You have evidence -- shocking evidence -- that would totally exonerate you, but you're not going to go to court because it'll hurt your kids, as opposed to what's happening now? You know how phony that sounds, right? 'I would take this to trial, but the idea of my kids hearing a judge declare me not guilty would be too much for them.'"
"Look, I don't know about O'Reilly's kids, but if O'Reilly were my dad, I would rather he just gave me the $32 million," the comedian joked. "I can handle some bad news for $32 million. Poeple would be like, 'Trevor, doesn't it hurt to see your dad get beaten up by the media?' I'd be like, 'Yeah, yeah, I watched the news in my private jet. It really hurt, man.'"
The former Fox News host also pointed his finger upward and blamed God. "Am I mad at God? Yeah, I'm mad at him," O'Reilly said Monday night. "I wish I had more protection. I wish this stuff didn't happen. I can't explain it to you. Yeah, I'm mad at him. If I die tomorrow and I get an opportunity, I'll say, 'Why'd you guys work me over like that?'"
So Noah summoned the big man upstairs to his show. "I came to tell Bill O'Reilly to keep my name out of his mouth!" one of Noah's writers dressed as God said.
Stephen Colbert also chimed in on O'Reilly's God comments.
"Coincidentally, 'Why'd you guys work me over like that' is testimony from many of the lawsuits against Fox News," he joked.
Like Noah, Colbert also had God swing by to share his two cents about the situation.
"I'm not proud of it, but I don't exactly have the best history with woman," the animated cartoon God said. "There was that time I got somebody pregnant and then totally bailed -- kid shows up on my doorstep 33 years later -- turns out, nice guy!"
When Colbert asked God if he was responsible for O'Reilly's actions, he responded, "He's a real sick puppy. Did you know he sent me gay porn? And not even the good stuff. You need a little story to get the motor running."
When Colbert pressed him, God admitted that it was indeed his fault: "I gave him free will, and look what he did with it!"
