Ed Asner Asks Fox News Producer If He Can Urinate On Him

As NewsBusters reported Wednesday, Ed Asner narrated an animated video for the California Federation of Teachers wherein a rich man urinated on a group of poor people.

In an interview aired on Fox News's Hannity Wednesday, Asner asked one of the program's producers if he could urinate on him (video follows with transcript and commentary):

SEAN HANNITY, HOST: On last night's program, we showed you a propaganda cartoon put out by the California teachers union which was the Federation of Teachers demonizing wealthy Americans for their success. Look at this.

ED ASNER: Over time rich people decided they weren't rich enough, so they came up with ways to get richer. The first way was through tax cuts. They didn't mind that this meant fewer services for everyone. They said, “Why should I care about other non-rich people?” When ordinary people wondered why rich people needed so much money, the one percent said, “Don't worry. This is good for you, too, because it will trickle down from us to you.”

HANNITY: Ah, urinating on people. So do you recognize the voice narrating that cartoon? Well, that is none other than that radical left-wing Hollywood actor Ed Asner. And one of our producers confronted him outside the New York City theater where he is currently performing and asked him about his role in this disgusting hit piece.

UNIDENTIFIED FOX NEWS PRODUCER: Do you remember the video? Do you know what I'm talking about?

ASNER: I don't remember a thing I said on it or a word I said on it, but I agreed to do it for California teachers. I approve this message.

UNIDENTIFIED FOX NEWS PRODUCER: Okay. I think the most controversial part the people are talking about it, there's a part of it where talking about things trickling down and they have like rich people peeing on poor people.

ASNER: How disgusting. It should be reversed.

UNIDENTIFIED FOX NEWS PRODUCER: So you don't remember that?

ASNER: Do you have any money?

UNIDENTIFIED FOX NEWS PRODUCER: Yeah.

ASNER: Can I piss on you?

HANNITY: Pretty classy, Mr. Asner. I guess it's true there's really no business like show business.


Pretty classy indeed.
