Rick Sanchez was fired from CNN today for his racist comments about Jon Stewart and Jews running news organizations. Crazy! The outspoken CNN talk show host, appeared on a radio show and called Jon Stewart a “bigot,” but later took the word back, calling the Comedy Central star “prejudicial” instead.
When the radi0 show host asked Rick Sanchez “who” exactly Jon Stewart was prejudice against, after all he makes fun of EVERYONE, Rick Sanchez said, “Against anybody who doesn’t agree to his point of view, which is very much a white liberal establishment point of view.” Please Rick, don’t be so sensitive.
One of the co-hosts of the radio show brought up the fact that Mr. Stewart was a Jew, saying to Mr. Sanchez that he was a minority “as much as you are.” Rick Sanchez answered sarcastically, “Yeah. Yeah. Very powerless people.” He let out a high-pitched laugh. Oops, naughty, naughty. Astrochicks predicts Rick Sanchez will land a gig at Fox News very soon.
“Everybody that runs CNN is a lot like Stewart,” Rick Sanchez said. “And a lot of people who run all the other networks are a lot like Stewart. And to imply that somehow they — the people in this country who are Jewish — are an oppressed minority? Yeah.” I guess Sanchez forgot about World War 2.
Born under the zodiac sign of Cancer, Rick Sanchez is definitely an emotional guy. Anyway, CNN told Rick Sanchez “hasta la vista” baby by CNN and we will have to wait till Monday to hear Jon Stewart’s reaction. I’m sure Stewart will make a funny remark about the situation and Rick Sanchez’s Twitter is eerily quiet. Stay tuned.
