Not sure what he’d make of our gun laws, though.

OUTSPOKEN FOX NEWS host Bill O’Reilly says he will move to Ireland if Bernie Sanders is elected President of the US.

O’Reilly, who has an Irish great-grandparent, made the threat/promise on Thursday’s edition of his O’Reilly Factor show.

“If Bernie Sanders gets elected president, I’m fleeing.

“I’m going to Ireland. And they already know it.”

He accepted that his comments could lead to more votes for Sanders, who is challenging Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination for November’s election.

“I’m not going to pay 90% of my income to that guy. I’m sorry. I’m not doing it.”

O’Reilly has been a noted critic of Obamacare and gun control, so it would be interesting to see how he would enjoy life here.

Cher, Jon Stewart, Rosie O’Donnell and Samuel L Jackson are all on record as saying they would leave if Donald Trump wins the Presidency.
