Despite the litany of accusations made against him, Bill O'Reilly has no trouble sleeping at night!

The former host of The O'Reilly Factor appeared on TODAY six months after being ousted at Fox News, where he called the sexual harassment charges made against him nothing but a "political and financial hit job."

Sitting down with Matt Lauer, the political pundit denied ever having been accused of misconduct against women — until he was faced with the claims that ended his cable news career. He insisted:

"Not in 42 years. In 42 years, I've been in this business. I worked with 12 companies. Not one time did I have any interaction with HR, any complaints filed against me."

Earlier this year, it was reported that five women were paid a settlement of $13 million by the network for agreeing not to file lawsuits or speak publicly about the allegations against O'Reilly.

But the conservative commentator claims he knows nothing about Fox's "business decision" in paying off his accusers. He continued:

Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton continues to untangle her devastating election loss to Donald Trump last year.

In her first live interview since November, the Democratic nominee sat down with Matt Lauer (who she openly criticizes in her memoir) and Savannah Guthrie on the TODAY show to discuss her new book What Happened and dissect the factors that cost her the White House.

At the top of the list is former FBI Director James Comey, whose "unprecedented actions" of telling lawmakers that he was reopening an investigation into Hillary's private email server just days before Election Day seriously affected her campaign momentum.

The longtime politician said:

"I thought, what is he doing? The investigation is closed. I knew there was no new information. And then it became clear. This was not necessary … Absent that, I believe and I think the evidence shows, I would have won."

On accepting the fact that Trump is now POTUS, Hillary admitted:

"I respect the fact that he is the president. I just wish he were the president for all Americans. I wish he was not engaging in a lot of the scapegoating and behavior in office that I think is bad for this county."

Hear, hear.

There's nothing Andy Cohen loves more than a good pop culture moment!

So it only made sense that the Bravo celeb made Matt Lauer look back on some of his most iconic interviews when he stopped by Watch What Happens Live on Thursday. Specifically, Cohen forced the Today show host to reenact his infamous Tom Cruise interview where the A-lister called Lauer "glib." AH-Mazing!

Although the 59-year-old was vehement that he and Cruise are still friends after this disastrous interview, Matt was more than ready to relive the drama. However, this wasn't the only on-camera moment the journalist dished on as he also defended grilling a teary-eyed Britney Spears in 2006!

Be sure to ch-ch-check out Matt's reenactment and other HIGHlights from his visit (below). P.S. We should probably mention that Mr. Lauer's cohost Savannah Guthrie was there too!

Ellen DeGeneres Scares The Piss Out Of Matt Lauer With A Savannah Guthrie Impersonator!

Matt Lauer has Savannah Guthrie on the brain… and Ellen DeGeneres is taking full advantage of it!

The TODAY host stopped by Wednesday's Ellen to discuss his 20th anniversary hosting the daytime NBC show — which, he admits, isn't nearly as historic as the recent 20th anniversary of Ellen's public coming out.

But little did the anchor know their chat would include another milestone: the first time he wet his pants in front of an audience!

A smiley Matt was discussing how he and cohost Guthrie have different tastes in music when Ellen launched her attack — cuing a man (co-executive producer Corey Palent) dressed as Guthrie to pop up from that pandora's box of a coffee table and scare the shit out of the reporter!

The 59-year-old was so caught off guard, he called Ellen "petty" and "immature" for playing such a cruel prank. Did you really think you'd get a scare-free interview, Matt?

Ch-ch-check out the clip (below) to see Lauer get spooked by his deepest Freudian nightmares!

Kellyanne Conway Defends Donald Trump's Proofless Claims Of Being Wiretapped By Obama — And Suggests It Could've Been Done Using A Microwave!

Kellyanne Conway is cooking up more conspiracies about Barack Obama!

Donald Trump's counselor bravely faced the media on Monday to discuss the president's unproven claims his predecessor wiretapped Trump Tower during the 2016 election — and backpedal on some of her own outrageous claims on the matter.

On Monday's Good Morning America, Conway admitted she doesn't have "any evidence" to support the controversial allegations, but said she was glad the explosive claims are being investigated by the House Intelligence Committee.

The leaders of the committee have urged the Justice Department to respond by Monday with any evidence supporting the explosive allegations — because, just like Conway, the White House has yet to provide any evidence to support the baseless claims Trump tweeted last month.

While we're still without proof that Obama wiretapped Trump Tower, Conway proved that desperate times called for desperate conspiracies over the weekend.

In an interview on Sunday with New Jersey's Bergen County Record, Conway clung to a recent WikiLeaks report that allegedly revealed secrets about the CIA's tools for using computers, cellphones, and smart TV's to surveil unwitting victims.

And because Trump is always the victim in his alternative universe, Conway went as far to suggest he could have been monitored with "microwaves that turn into cameras," adding:
