DescriptionBack in March, Fox News host Bill O'Reilly made a promise to American Constitution Society president Caroline Fredrickson that if she were proven right, and SCOTUS upheld the Affordable Care Act's individual mandate, he would reply their interview and "apologize for being an idiot."

On last night show, O'Reilly re-aired the segment and called himself an idiot — but not really. And he certainly didn't apologize for being one.

"I'm not really sorry, but I am a man of my word, so I apologize for not factoring in the John Roberts situation," O'Reilly said. "Truthfully, I never in a million years would thought the chief justice would go beyond the scope of the commerce clause to date and into taxation. I may be an idiot for not considering that."
