Bill Murray’s 2011 Appearance on Squawk Box
“It’s not a question of asking other people for help or being rescued or anything like that,” he added. “I think there’s only so many people that can take care of themselves, and can take care of other people. And the rest of the people … they’re useful in terms of compost for the whole planet, you know.”
Murray’s message of personal responsibility “seemed to play into the message of Republicans,” The Hill reported in an article on the “Squawk Box” appearance. The conservative-leaning Drudge Report linked it.”* Jimmy Dore (The Jimmy Dore Show) and Steve Oh (COO of The Young Turks) discuss Murray’s comment and why it shows that he’s out of touch with middle class people.
Welcome to the first episode of our new show taped at the CurrentTV studios and airing on The Young Turks Network.
This week we tackle the Facebooks public offering, the media's coverage of the Bin Laden death, John McCain advice on picking a Vice-President, and Jamie Dimon is kind of 100% full of shit.
Fox News discussed the Colorado Ballot initiative to legalize pot, and we break it down with Cenk Uyger and Michael Sure on TYT!
After this aired, I got tweeted by the VP of Meat Glue (not kidding) and he was very upset, but had noting factual to say.
