Roseanne Barr shocks Fox & Friends by joking about beheading the wealthy, and ESPN pulls Hank Williams Jr.'s song due to his mangled Obama-Hitler metaphor. (4:14)

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE).

>> Jon: WELCOME BACK TO THE

SHOW!

NOW, IF YOU'VE BEEN FOLLOWING

THE NEWS, YOU KNOW THAT FORMER

SITCOM STAR TURNED MACADAMIA

FARMER ROSEANNE BARR MADE

HEADLINES WHEN SHE JOKINGLY

CALLED FOR THE BEHEADING OF

ANYONE MAKING OVER $100 MILLION

A YEAR WHO WASN'T GIVING SOME

BACK.

SHE WAS KIDDING!

BUT IT DIDN'T SIT WELL WITH A

CERTAIN MORNING SHOW.

>> MY QUESTION IS WHY DO WE CARE

WHAT ROSEANNE BARR SAYS?

I MEAN, I DON'T REALLY... WHY DO

WE GIVE SO MUCH ATTENTION TO

THESE CELEBRITIES AND WHAT THEY

SAY?

>> Jon: HEAR, HEAR!

I AM SICK TO DEATH OF THESE

CELEBRITIES TELLING US WHAT TO

THINK ABOUT POLITICS.

LET ME JUST FAST FORWARD TO FOX

AND FRIENDS MORNING SHOW EXACTLY

1:15.

GO.

>> JOINING US RIGHT NOW TO BREAK

DOWN THE 2012 G.O.P. FIELD IS

COUNTRY SINGER SUPERSTAR HANK

WILLIAMS, JR.!

(AUDIENCE REACTS)

(APPLAUSE)

>> Jon: I CAN'T BELIEVE IT.

THAT SHOW JUST SET A NEW WORLD

RECORD, 74 MINUTES.

THEY'VE NEVER GONE THAT LONG

BEFORE.

WAIT, BUT THE HANK IS HERE...

>> YOU REMEMBER THE GOLF GAME

THEY HAD, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN?

>> YEAH.

>> YOU REMEMBER THE GOLF GAME?

>> YOU MEAN WHEN JOHN BOEHNER

PLAYED GOLF WITH PRESIDENT

OBAMA?

>> OH, YEAH!

YEAH.

AND BIDEN AND KASICH, YEAH.

UH-HUH.

>> Jon: WHAT DID YOU NOT LIKE

ABOUT IT?

IT SEEMED TO BE A PIVOTAL MOMENT

FOR YOU.

>> COME ON.

COME ON.

THAT WOULD BE LIKE HITLER

PLAYING GOLF WITH NETANYAHU.

OKAY?

(AUDIENCE REACTS)

>> Jon: I'M NOT EVEN SURE I

UNDERSTAND WHAT THE HELL HE JUST

SAID BUT ALL RIGHT, SO HE

MANGLED HIS METAPHORS AND HE'S

PRETTY OUT THERE.

SO WHAT?

HE'S LIKE ROSEANNE.

JUST OUT THERE.

THEY BOTH MANGLE IT HAD STAR

SPANGLED BANNER, THEY BOTH

DRUNKENLY MARRIED TOM ARNOLD.

(LAUGHTER)

I GUESS WE'LL JUST CHALK IT UP

AS ANOTHER CASE OF FOX AND

FRIENDS SAYING ONE THING AND

DOING ANOTHER, NO HARM, NO FOUL.

>> ESPN, THE NETWORK THAT

CARRIES THE GAME, PULLED THE

HANK WILLIAMS, JR., SONG

FOLLOWING HIS CONTROVERSIAL

COMMENT.

>> WHAT?

THEY PULLED THE SONG?

WE COUNT ON HIM TO GAUGE OUR

NATION'S FOOTBALL READINESS!

(LAUGHTER)

IF ANYTHING, JUST GIVE HIM A

LITTLE SLAP ON THE WRIST.

MAKE HIM ALSO HEAD TO ESPN 4 AND

SING ARE YOU READY FOR ACTUAL

FOOTBALL.

HANDS AREN'T ALOUD

♪ AND THE PITCH IS JUST RIGHT,

♪ ARSENAL IS PLAYING MANCHESTER

UNITED TONIGHT

♪ ARE YOU READY FOR A GAME THAT

WILL PROBABLY END IN A TIE... ♪

BY THE WAY, ESPN, YOU'RE SHOCKED

AT BOCEPHUS' COMMENTS.

HE'S BEEN AT ESPN FOR 20 YEARS

VSM YOU MET HIM?

FRANKLY, I'M SURPRISED HE DIDN'T

PUNCTUATE HIS OBAMA/HITLER

METAPHOR WITH "I MEAN (BLEEP)."

THIS IS BOCEPHUS, MAN00 HE'S GOT

A SONG ABOUT HOW THINGS WOULD BE

BETTER IF THE SOUTH HAD WON.

THE GUY FELL 442 FEET OFF A

MOUNTAIN, CRACKED OPEN HIS SKULL

HE HAD TO HOLD IN HIS OWN BRAIN

AND SURVIVED.

WHEN HE TALKS I CAN SMELL THE

JACK DANIELS ON HIS BREATH FROM

THE TELEVISION.

(LAUGHTER)

SO DON'T ACT ALL OOH, MY

GOODNESS, WHEN HE SAYS SOMETHING

DOWN HOME AND GRITTY.

THAT'S WHAT HE'S THERE FOR.

BUT, OF COURSE, ESPN IS NOW

ACUTELY AWARE OF THE SOCIETAL

IMPACT OF ALL ITS PRESENTERS.

MAY I OFFER, ESPN, A "MONDAY

NIGHT FOOTBALL" ALTERNATIVE WHO

RECENTLY DISCOVERED IN THE BACK

ROOM OF THE HUMMUS KETTLE ON

McDOUGAL.

PLEASE WELCOME AMY AND AMY P.
