NEW YORK, NY - First Lady Michelle Obama is really killing the speech game. Bill O'Reilly, on the other hand, is really killing the vibe.

The First Lady's speech at the Democratic National Convention was filled with powerful moments including her statement "I wake up every morning in a house that was built by slaves."

O'Reilly's response to the First Lady's speech is ramping people up. He said "slaves that worked there were well fed and had decent lodgings provided by the government which stopped hiring slave labor in 1802."

The FOX News anchor seems to be forgetting: they were still slaves!

He was trying to point out that other individuals helped out stating: "in addition free blacks, whites and immigrants also worked on the massive building."

Obama hasn't clapped back, but Twitter trolls came to her defense.  "I'm starting a moment to build a wall around Bill O'Reilly, don't worry, I'll make sure he's as well-fed as the slaves were" says @erinkellytweets.

Certainly, O'Reilly knew he was playing with fire, so one can only wonder if he will say anything to put it out.
