MSNBC’s Ed Schultz exploded on a caller during his radio show Monday, eventually calling him an “a**hole” and telling him to “get the f*** out of here.”
Things spun out of control after the caller yelled at Schultz: “This is fascism. Stop capitulating to the people who created the problem and you continue to make them wealthy.”
“I’m going to feel very, very bad if you have a stroke on this radio show. Settle down,” Schultz replied. “First of all, you jump three steps ahead. A**hole, is that what you want to reduce this conversation to? Well, you’re a fricking a**hole. How about that? Get the f*** out of here! How about that? I’m sure they hit the seven-second delay on that one.”
Schultz told his listeners that he “just lost it on that guy” because he refuses to “take the personal insults.”
He then nervously asked his staff if they caught the expletive.
“I hope that that didn’t go out. Did we catch that one? I need some direction. Did we catch that one? Yes or no?” Schultz pressed.
They apparently didn’t.
