    O'REILLY: Before we get to Gutfeld and McGuirk, I just received this statement from ESPN. Isn't this interesting. This comes from Josh Kulowitz. He is a vice president over there.

    He says, quote, "We have again reviewed the ads submitted for the Cardinal Glennon Children's Medical Center that we will accept the original requested commercial."

    Well, very good, ESPN. I'm glad, I'm glad. We didn't want to do that. I like Sports Center. We didn't want -- OK, come back to me, please.

    Thank you.

    GREG GUTFELD, FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR: Enough of the kids.

    O'REILLY: Yes, we've seen the kids. I like Sports Center. I don't want to go after them.

    I know a lot of people who work there. They're good guys. But, you know, what's right is right. And I'm glad you guys are going to do this.

    BERNARD MCGUIRK, FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR: Another notch in the O'REILLY -- but maybe they want --

    O'REILLY: Whatever, it's not about me.

    MCGUIRK: -- they want to hire Tim Tebow probably.

    O'REILLY: It's not about me. All right, in "Back of the Book" segment tonight, an amazing story in South Africa.

    (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

    BARACK OBAMA, 44TH U.S. PRESIDENT: Here is a man of flesh and blood, a son and a husband, a father and a friend. And that's why we learned so much from him and that's why we can learn from him still.

    (END VIDEO CLIP)

    O'REILLY: The problem is is that sign language guy, see that guy, 34- year-old, Thamsanqa Jantjie, is a fraud. He doesn't even know sign language.

    He's standing just feet away from President Obama. The Today Show ran a report this morning.

    (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

    ALEXANDER SMITH, NBC NEWS CONTRIBUTOR: In a series of interviews, Thamsanqa Jantjie says he is currently a patient receiving treatment for schizophrenia, and that he had a breakdown during the event.

    THAMSANQA JANTJIE, SIGN LANGUAGE INTERPRETER AT NELSON MANDELA MEMORIAL: (Speaking in another language).

    SMITH: The interpreter tells NBC News, he has been hospitalized because of his schizophrenia, which also had led him to be violent in the past.

    (END VIDEO CLIP)

    MCGUIRK: Wow.

    O'REILLY: So far, the South African government has not explained this. With us now to react, Gutfeld and McGuirk. So, Gutfeld, here's the deal, the American Secret Service is responsible --

    GUTFELD: Right.

    O'REILLY: -- for guarding President Obama. I mean, you can't depend on the South African government. And this guy, who admits he gets violent, -- GUTFELD: Right.

    O'REILLY: -- was feet away.

    GUTFELD: Here's the conflict. He is a violent schizophrenic which qualifies him for the U.N.

    (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

    O'REILLY: Yes, he could have been a U.N. officer. I mean, --

    GUTFELD: But you're absolutely right. We spend billions of dollars protecting the president. This guy is 2 feet away from him. Anything could happen.

    O'REILLY: It is amazingly scary. Sorry, we don't spend billions. We spend millions protecting him.

    GUTFELD: I think billions.

    (LAUGHTER)

    O'REILLY: But very disturbing, and we want the Secret Service, whom I like personally, --

    (END VIDEO CLIP)

    -- to give us a statement and explain how this could happen. Is that fair enough.

    MCGUIRK: That's very fair. I mean, who is in charge of security, was it Guillermo from the Jimmy Kimmel Show, --

    O'REILLY: No.
