Richard Belzer checked all the boxes with this one.
The Law & Order: SVU actor has outdone himself this time with a train wreck of an interview that touched on just about every offensive subject there is.
All in a 30-second span, no less!
Asked whether one of the Good Day NY hosts could play his relative on the NBC show, Belzer responded "If he gets molested and banged in the ass."
He then gave his best Nazi salute and said "Heil to your colleagues in the other division."
Amazingly, this is not our first Richard Belzer Nazi salute story, as he's been criticized for making the gesture on a red carpet. As for the comment about the anchor?
Belzer jokingly explained, "I meant banged against a piece of furniture." Sure.
The actor's rep quickly put out a statement, calling the salute a "satirical gesture toward Fox News ... whose ideology he is opposed to."
Odd, since the interview took place on a local Fox station.
The rep adds, "The other portion was a joke pertaining to the material of Richard's TV show, which he tweaked at the last minute to make about furniture. A joke is a joke."
Not one of the better ones we've heard in that case.
