After Mediaite received footage of an irate Lawrence O’Donnell dealing with producers and hammering and God knows what else, it was inevitable someone would mash it up with Bill O’Reilly’s legendary “We’ll do it live!” rant.
So we decided to do it.
Warning: The video contains strong language.
A furious O’Donnell, reportedly during the shooting of his Aug. 29 show, is shown in leaked footage berating MSNBC producers about the wrong voice in his ear, and most of all, someone hammering away nearby.
“Stop the hammering!” he yelled repeatedly.
It’s unclear if the hammering ever stopped.
O’Reilly, of course, melted down off-camera while he worked for “Inside Edition,” his last landing spot before joining Fox News Channel in 1996.
The similarities in the transition from semi-calm annoyance to utter fury in both hosts are uncanny.
