New details are slowly emerging regarding Robin Williams‘ concerning behavior while on the set of his last TV show, “The Crazy Ones.”
“So the truth is slowly leaking out,” Callahan said.
“Did you watch ‘The Crazy Ones?’ “ Callahan asked.
“Once, because [Williams] was in it,” Meterparel responded.
“I did the same thing, I watched the pilot. It’s the worst thing I ever saw. I didn’t make it through,” Minihane said.
Last May, Williams insisted on filming a scene for the CBS series while drinking actual alcohol, an action that seemed to “calm him down.”
A source told Radar Online that Williams, reeling financially, would sleep for almost 20 hours a day in the weeks leading up to his tragic death.
“Do you think there was any saving Robin Williams?” Callahan asked.
Said Minihane: “I think if he was doing well financially right now, he would have committed suicide six years from now. … I just think when there are demons; there are demons for some guys. I think he might have been one of those guys.”
– Barack Obama is coming up on his 200th round of golf since his election as President back in 2009. The Washington Times was quick to point out that golf star Tiger Woods has only played 269 rounds during that same time.
“The sad thing is that his handicap is lower than Tiger’s,” Callahan remarked.
“Would you play golf with Obama if you got an invitation?” Minihane asked Callahan.
‘No. … I would be uncomfortable,” Callahan responded.
“Why, he’s the President of the United States. … What a jerk. Is that a jerk move?” Minihane said.
