Comedienne Rosie O'Donnell gave another classy performance Friday evening when she used numerous vulgarities on NBC's "Late Night" just before she attacked Fox News's Glenn Beck.
Almost worse, host Jimmy Fallon didn't seem at all disturbed by O'Donnell's behavior.
Quite the contrary, whether she was cursing like a rapper or demeaning one of the nation's leading cable news personalities, Fallon cheered her on.
Ironically, O'Donnell's attack on Beck ended with her saying, "I don't understand why people enjoy that carnival barker...He's a scary man" (videos embedded below the fold with partial transcript):
JIMMY FALLON, HOST: And the show's just kind of you talking about anything. It's not --
ROSIE O'DONNELL: Anything.
FALLON: It is not a political show. It's not...
FALLON: It's just you talking to me going -- it's you and a couple of friends.
O'DONNELL: Yeah, it's not ever going to be me and Glenn Beck.
[ Laughter ]
FALLON: It won't be.
FALLON: Crying hysterically. No.
O'DONNELL: No. [ Crying sounds ] "Obama is ruining everything. I want drugs. Be afraid, America, we're in trouble."
[ light laughter ]
FALLON: You don't want to hear that everyday now.
O'DONNELL: I don't understand why people enjoy that carnival barker. I don't get it.
[ Laughter ] He's a scary man to me.
Bear in mind this was just moments after the following disgraceful, vulgarity-laden performance:
Now THAT'S a scary woman!
