Ed Asner to Fox Producer After Confronted About Union Cartoon: ‘Can I Piss on You?’

Considering the controversy, maybe this follow up story shouldn’t come as a surprise.

On Tuesday, TheBlaze was one of the first to report on the story of the California teachers’ union cartoon featuring the narration of Ed Asner and, at one point, a “rich” person peeing on the common man. Since then, the story has gone viral. And on Wednesday night, Fox News caught up with Asner to ask him about the controversial video. How did he respond? By asking the producer if he (Asner) could “piss” on the producer.

Here’s the video from “Hannity,” which also includes the reaction of Michelle Malkin:

Newsbusters has a transcript of the relevant portion of the exchange:

HANNITY: Ah, urinating on people. So do you recognize the voice narrating that cartoon? Well, that is none other than that radical left-wing Hollywood actor Ed Asner. And one of our producers confronted him outside the New York City theater where he is currently performing and asked him about his role in this disgusting hit piece.

UNIDENTIFIED FOX NEWS PRODUCER: Do you remember the video? Do you know what I’m talking about?

ASNER: I don’t remember a thing I said on it or a word I said on it, but I agreed to do it for California teachers. I approve this message.

UNIDENTIFIED FOX NEWS PRODUCER: Okay. I think the most controversial part the people are talking about it, there’s a part of it where talking about things trickling down and they have like rich people peeing on poor people.

ASNER: How disgusting. It should be reversed.

UNIDENTIFIED FOX NEWS PRODUCER: So you don’t remember that?

ASNER: Do you have any money?

UNIDENTIFIED FOX NEWS PRODUCER: Yeah.

ASNER: Can I piss on you?

HANNITY: Pretty classy, Mr. Asner. I guess it’s true there’s really no business like show business.
