The chaotic scene and rotating cast of characters may explain why Trump made a decision to go "off script" from remarks or talking points about domestic policy to defending O'Reilly, "a good person", in Trump's estimation, who it was recently reported paid out millions (along with Fox News) to settle sexual harassment claims and has since lost dozens of advertisers.
The book came out around the time of a New York Times report that five women were paid $13 million to settle allegations O'Reilly mistreated them.

Rep. Maxine Waters may have come up with the most appropriate title to describe the environment at Fox News. Network executives have said that advertisers are just pulling out of the show, not the network as a whole, and that the planned commercials will instead run on different Fox News programs.
According to a New York Times reporter, that's exactly what happened when the president bizarrely defended embattled Fox News host Bill O'Reilly during an interview in the Oval Office. "If TV advertisers stay with O'Reilly's show, their customers will demand to know why", said Kowalchek. O'Reilly has become one of the bestselling non-fiction authors in America. The company has a contract with Fox that doesn't specify which program its ads will air on, and has no plans to change its strategy, said Cheryl Reed, spokeswoman for the company that offers crowd-sourced reviews of local businesses.
"When your favorite show leaves a network, you don't watch the network very much anymore", said Jonathan Klein, former CNN president. "O'Reilly's brand is taking a big hit here".

Senators voted 23-15 to approve their version of the bill, with Miami Republican Anitere Flores joining Democrats in opposition. Bill Galvano, would allow slot machines at dog and horse tracks in eight counties outside of South Florida.
"It would make sense that Trump would trust "Fox and Friends" since they routinely give him sycophantic coverage".
On Tuesday, multiple advocacy groups started social media campaigns targeting companies sponsoring "The O'Reilly Factor". "I don't think Bill did anything wrong".
"This really is a sexual harassment enterprise", Waters said.
It's not uncommon for a company to abandon a show at the first sign of controversy, then slip back a few weeks later when things quiet down.
