Bill O'Reilly on Monday jokingly warned children not to watch MSNBC on election night due to the possibility Republican victories will make some of the on-air employees commit suicide.
Juan Williams joined in saying, "Harikari" (video follows with transcript and commentary, h/t Mediaite):
BILL O'REILLY, HOST: All right. Now the tongue war is a reference to Chinese gangs fighting each other over opium, I believe. Joining us now from Washington is Mary Katharine Ham. Here in New York Juan Williams, both are Fox News analysts, who have never tried opium.
O'REILLY: OK. I'm hoping Mary Katharine.
MARY KATHARINE HAM, FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR: Thank you.
O'REILLY: All right, Juan, now -- it's going to be interesting to watch tomorrow and the rest of the week.
JUAN WILLIAMS, FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR: Yes.
O'REILLY: The reaction if it plays out the way Gallup says it's going to play out. How the president will handle it? How the liberal commentators? I am going to issue a viewer warning right now for children not to watch MSNBC because some people may commit suicide. All right? They may set themselves on fire over there and it would be gruesome to watch that.
WILLIAMS: Tongue war, harikari.
O'REILLY: You know, right. I mean because you're not going to be able to spin this at all. The vote is going to be the vote.
It is indeed going to be fun to watch MSNBC this evening to see all the unhappy pusses and watch them spin this into a win for their team.
It will also be interesting to see if Katie Couric can do a better job of hiding her disappointment than she did on the "Today" show the morning after George W. Bush defeated John Kerry.
