Chicago's South Side resembles the quake-ravaged country of Haiti, Fox News host Bill O'Reilly says.

Speaking on his "Bold and Fresh" tour with equally bombastic host Glenn Beck, O'Reilly made the argument that Obama couldn't possibly help Haiti if he can't help Chicago's oft-troubled southern neighborhoods.

”If you've ever been to the South Side of Chicago, I mean, it's a disaster. Alright?" said O'Reilly. "It's like Haiti. It's like -- I've been to Haiti a couple times, and I support some charities there, but Haiti just never gets better no matter how much money you put in there because they don't have a system.”
