Sarah Palin is clearly in the Bill O’Reilly camp!

In an recent interview with CNN, the former Alaska governor weighed in on the recent wave of women accusing Bill O’Reilly of sexual harassment. O’Reilly was terminated by FOX News after 20 years on the air.

When asked by host Jake Tapper to give her thoughts on the allegations and the environment at FOX News, Palin called out the fired Newsman’s accusers for opting to “stick around for a paycheck for years” rather than stand up to his alleged actions against them!

“If a woman believes she is being intimidated and harassed, she needs to stand up and do something about it, not stick around for a paycheck for years and years and years and then after the fact complain about what she went through,” said Palin.

Palin, who herself was a FOX News contributor for five years, said that she personally would not stand for any harassment or intimidation in the workplace, adding that she hoped women would start to speak out more in these situations.

“Corporate culture there obviously has to change,” said Palin. “Women don’t deserve it, they should not ever have to put up with any kind of intimidating workspace.”

Tapper asked if the treatment of women at the network had anything to do with her decision to leave — citing how Gretchen Carlson, Megyn Kelly, Alisyn Camerota and Andrea Tantaros have all noted issues they had with how women were treated at the company.

“You know I’m not going to speak for them, my contract wasn’t renewed. That’s the line,” responded Palin. “I wouldn’t put up with anything that would be perceived as intimidating or harassing.”

Palin was a guest on “The O’Reilly Factor” many times during her years at FOX, even making headlines on occasion for some classic on-air battles.

“As a strong woman, I say we should feel more empowered than that and we should take a stand and get out of the place or you know, blow the whistle on whoever is the perpetrator doing the bad stuff so that the culture will change,” said Palin.

The former governor was recently part of a contingent invited to visit President Trump at the White House that included singers Kid Rock and Ted Nugent.

The three even posed for a photo — standing in front of the official portrait of former First Lady Hillary Clinton!

“The company was wonderful and dinner was beyond superb, with Baked Alaska for dessert. Thanks to the outstanding White House staff, chefs, Secret Service, and of course the President for making it such a special evening,” wrote Palin in her blog.
