O’Reilly: It’s so awful when people intrude on your vacation with their cameras.

Yesterday on his Fox News show, Bill O’Reilly tried to gripe with former Alaska governor Sarah Palin about what a tough life famous people — like themselves — have. O’Reilly said the worst is when he goes on vacation because there are always people trying to take his picture and intrude on his personal time:

O’REILLY: When you go on vacation it must be very difficult. It is for me. … Everybody has got the little camera. … Because I know — because when I became famous, and I never thought I would be, all of a sudden I couldn’t go anywhere without them clicking my picture. But that intrusion, does that weigh upon you psychologically. … I think that’s the worse thing about being famous, that intrusion.

Watch it:

O’Reilly, of course, knows plenty about the media following people and harassing them while they’re on vacation — since he sends his producers to do just that to anyone who criticizes him.

O’REILLY: When you go on vacation it must be very difficult. It is for me.

PALIN: It is.

O’REILLY: No. 1, no hotel will take my reservation, because they hate me. But, No. 2, everybody is staring at you. … But every time you walk out to the pool and order a little cocktail, is everybody, “Oh, what’s she doing?”

PALIN: Very nice people, but then there were some people with their cameras that we –

O’REILLY: Always. Everybody has got the little camera. … And then there are a couple of islands in the Caribbean that you can go to that rent a little thing like that. Because I know — because when I became famous, and I never thought I would be, all of a sudden I couldn’t go anywhere without them clicking my picture. But that intrusion, does that weigh upon you psychologically.

PALIN: I just don’t want it to burden the kids.

O’REILLY: I think that’s the worse thing about being famous, that intrusion. Would you agree?

PALIN: That intrusion, again, is a bit of a burden. And yet, the people who, quote, unquote, intrude on our life, still so lovely. So nice. So encouraging, and they inspire me. So as long as we have that good balance of having that private family time, which we’re able to balance out right now, then all is well.
