Former Fox News star Bill O’Reilly didn’t think much of Stormy Daniels’ interview on “60 Minutes” last night, saying the adult film actress was probably out for money and that the ruckus she was creating would hurt her family.

“So much for the porn performer on ’60 Minutes’ whose story doesn’t stack. She says she didn’t want money to attack Donald Trump but accepted money,” said O’Reilly “She doesn’t want money now either. So why are you on national television with all this garbage? Does that help your daughter?”

“So, Anderson,” he added. “‘Some guy threatened my baby daughter to my face but I was too scared to tell the police but not too scared to tell @60Minutes.'”

Once the longtime ratings king of Fox News, O’Reilly was ousted in April 2017, after multiple allegations of sexual misconduct spanning his years at the network finally caught up with him. In October, the New York Times reported that O’Reilly dropped $32 million in a settlement with a singular woman.

“They included allegations of repeated harassment, a nonconsensual sexual relationship and the sending of gay pornography and other sexually explicit material to her, according to the people briefed on the matter,” the Times reported.

Leaving Fox has lowered O’Reilly’s profile, but still hasn’t stopped him from making millions and continuing to have a voice on his subscription website.

O’Reilly wasn’t the only one griping about Anderson Cooper’s “60 Minutes” performance. The segment also was criticized on “Morning Joe” Monday, with host Joe Scarborough blasting it as uninformative and overhyped.
