Ed Asner Asks Fox News Producer: ‘Can I Piss On You?’


by Andrew Kirell | 12:54 am, December 6th, 2012

As we reported earlier today, a cartoon from the California Federation of Teachers has stirred some controversy, not for its scathing critique of income disparity in America, but for a particular scene in which a wealthy man urinates on poor people below him. Actor Ed Asner narrated the video, and so a producer for Fox News’Hannity confronted him.

Suffice it to say, the interaction did not go well.

Before showing the confrontation, host Sean Hannity explained that Asner is a “radical left-wing Hollywood actor” who needed to be asked about his role in a “disgusting hit piece” on wealthy Americans.

The actual confrontation went like this:

The Fox producer asked Asner: “Do you remember the video? Do you know what I’m talking about?”
“I don’t remember a thing I said on it or a word I said on it,” Asner replied, “but I agreed to do it for California teachers. I approve this message.”

“There’s a part of it where talking about things trickling down and they have like rich people peeing on poor people,” the producer explained further.

“How disgusting,” Asner said. “It should be reversed.”

“So you don’t remember that?” the producer asked.

“Do you have any money?” Asner asked with a smirk.

“Yeah.”

“Can I piss on you?” asked the actor.

And… end scene.

“Pretty classy, Mr. Asner,” Hannity concluded back in studio. “I guess it’s true there’s really no business like show business.”

I like people who's name is Ed. It's not as if Ed had pissed on the guy he was asking out of courtesy. Some people prefer that sort of treatment.

If you like looking at statistics to determine who's better, you're just a casual fan.

2.41 season GAA isn't very impressive. Let's not get into playoffs and his SV%.

Cory Schneider is the next Patrick Roy.

Saw him recently on Hiwaii 5-0 where they resurrected his character from the original show. He was strong for being 90+. I cut him slack just on that basis. He's an old guy, he's paid his dues. Say what you want.

Ed is a great guy .. always has been .. speaks his mind and does not suffer fools lightly .. I do believe Ed is a veteran of Union turmoil and knows his "enemy", no matter how slick the "suit" looks .. piss on em all. Ed, while you still have pressure ..

You mean like Hannity calling Asner a "radical left wing nutjob"?

I saw 'Hannity' and figured it would go pretty much as it did. I think the comment by Ed Asner went over a lot of people's heads, actually. With Asner on this one.

A sense of humor is wasted on the Hannity's of the world .. must be wonderful to be old enough to be above such mendacity .. may the wind stay strong beneath all our wings .. :)
