So...should NBC dump Donald Trump from its prime time line-up due to his repeated public disrespect for the President of the United States? Feel free to leave comments.
By the way, here's the wisecrack that got me in trouble back in 1994: I was assigned to do live segment with a traveling circus company up from Florida and playing a weekend in the New York area. One of its advertised star attractions was "Uncle Grumpy and his Singing Pig." I had to interview Uncle Grumpy and then get him to make the pig sing on our weekend morning show. Uncle Grumpy did not want to give his real name. The circus name suited him. He looked like a biker gang member on Sons of Anarchy. The pig was the size of a zipcar. When I asked Grumpy to make the pig sing for us, he whipped a big wooden stick out of his overalls and proceeded to whack the pig on the ass like it was a convict. I didn't expect that. Neither did the cameraman. The pig broke out into some high-pitched squealing. Our co-host back in the studio said something like "Bobby, is that how the pig sings?" I replied, "I think so. But it sounds more like Ned Beatty in Deliverance." For that, I was called into the news director's office.
