Appearing on The Young Turks on Current TV, actor Ed Asner fired back at Fox host Sean Hannity for the latter’s outrage over the former’s participation in a California Federation of Teachers cartoon video that included a rich man urinating on poor people.
“I think he’s behind on his rabies shots,” Asner told host Cenk Uygur, referring to Hannity’s anger over the cartoon.
For context: in last week’s Hannity segment on the video, a Fox producer approached Asner outside a theater in Midtown Manhattan to ask him about whether he supports such over-the-top animation to make the point about income inequality. A sarcastic Asner eventually asked the producer whether he could “piss” on him. This prompted Hannity to snark about how un-classy the actor is; and then he and Michelle Malkin proceeded to rag on the actor and the cartoon for the subsequent discussion.
