I was inclined to give him the benefit of the doubt that it was probably just a bad attempt at a joke. Then he immediately tried to make it about Trump and I started feeling less generous.

It seems like an inopportune moment for Asner to attack the political right and Christians, but I guess that once you’re 87, you’re gonna do what you’re gonna do.

Too bad. I absolutely love Asner as an actor. It’s probably a good thing I don’t know him in real life.
