Low Blow: Ed Schultz Suggests Speaker Boehner Cheats At Everything, Including Golf

Ever since MSNBC moved Ed Schultz to the coveted Saturday afternoon time slot, he has found a new opportunity to trash conservatives. Speaking on Saturday July 27, Schultz took his erratic ranting to a new low when he questioned whether or not Boehner of all things, cheats at golf.

During a segment entitled “Ask Ed Live” Schultz took a question from one of the few listeners that watches MSNBC on Saturday afternoon now that Lockup has stopped airing. The viewer wanted to know, “If you could sit down with Speaker Boehner, what would you ask him?” to which Schultz mockingly answered: [Read more below, followed by video.]

“I’d actually like to play golf with the guy because then I’d get 4 hours if we played 18. Because when you play golf with somebody, you find out if they cheat or not. I'm curious if he really is an honest golfer.”

ED SCHULTZ: Welcome back to The Ed Show. Tonight, in our ask Ed live segment first question comes from  Kana. If you could sit down with Speaker Boehner, what would you ask him? Well, I’d actually like to play golf with the guy because then I’d get 4 hours if we played 18. Because when you play golf with somebody, you find out if they cheat or not. I'm curious if he really is an honest golfer. Because with the American people, he has not been an honest broker. He has been against the will of the people time and time again. And I would ask him that. He constantly says the American people this, the American people want that. The American people -- when the polling shows on every issue, he is absolutely wrong.
