. . . also, Don King is insane.
Here’s Don being interviewed on Headline News’ Glen Beck program (with a guest host).
Some have proposed that, especially in a time of war, the media has a responsibility to make the country look strong and resolute to other nations. I propose, however, that all Americans have a responsibility not to make us look like retarded lunatics. This is a responsibility that Don King has failed to live up to.
And what the shit is the deal with Headline News interviewing this sleazy murderer (who, again, is also a total fucking nutter) about world affairs and the amazing awesomeness of President Bush? And then actually airing the interview once they knew what they’d done??!?! Now, if I saw a Frenchman doing this same exact interview for French TV, wearing the same kind of crazy patriotic clothing and jewelry, I would (literally) assume that he was doing a comedy skit. If I later found out that he was being 100% serious, and that he still got seven minutes of air-time on a major cable news network, I really think my opinion of the French as a people would be damaged somewhat.
And yet, against all logic, Don King continues to exist.
