Ed Asner to Fox News producer after confronted about union cartoon: ‘'Can I piss on you?’'



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.”

20. I remember my first wife saying to me

when we were having a big argument, "You wouldn't piss on me if I were on fire." That stopped one time when I hesitated like I was thinking deeply, looked at her very seriously, and said, "Yes, I would."

That's apparently gone with the Tea Party. (BTW, j'ever notice the initials for TP are also how many of us list bathroom tissue on grocery lists? Just sayin'.....)

18. In context it's a response to Hannity and his summation of a previous jump interview by FOX producer.

“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.

Okay. It's not as jarring as I first thought. It's a metaphor for the trickle down of the success of the uber wealthy.

I'm I getting the right picture?

not to mention the fact that asner's voiceover only said: trickle-down. The animation wasn't done by him and he probably never even saw it. He went in a booth and read the lines.

32. I don't know, but he sounded like he'd had a couple. That's a problem with gotcha interviews.

People get caught short in strange situations. I'd give little creedence to his comments (though they tickle me) but of course it serves Hannity's purpose to treat them as if he's saying it on the floor of the senate and not at night on the street.

He also had a mischievous grin there at the end Fox deemed to cut off. I agree, Hannity says and does whatever best serves his purpose and thus, thinking people know he is a manipulative tool and never take him seriously.

I hate to sound old but...... When Trickle down economics was first talked about many knew that the rich would be trickling down on the rest of us. He is saying nothing that hasn't been said before for years and years. Pi**ing was the word used then and now.

48. I'm glad that these wealthy people have FOX News to defend them

It's unthinkable that anyone -- especially these lazy poor people -- would have the nerve to be so offensive to wealthy people who all worked so hard to inherit their money and screw over the working man every chance they got. I mean I could understand if they were making fun of a minority group with racist comments. That's acceptable. But won't anyone think of the wealthy and powerful. It's absolutely disgusting that they would even waste a minute producing this hateful and, dare I say, hurtful, cartoon.

(People at a left-leaning site are smart enough to understand sarcasm without adding a <sarcasm> tag, so I won't.)

(Wait a minute, I just did.)

Last edited Sat Dec 8, 2012, 10:38 AM - Edit history (2)

People are pretty plain-spoken here. Ed Asner is pretty popular where he grew up, where at least a few old timers are still around and still stay in touch some. Me -- I don't begrudge Mr. Asner his opinion-- but I wouldn't piss down Hannity's throat if his heart was on fire. Err ... if his spleen was on fire.
