Harry Belafonte

The news anchors at KBAK in Bakersfield, CA were super pumped up for a satellite interview with 84-year-old Harry Belafonte Friday morning ... but when they cut to the "Day-O" singer, he was fast asleep.

After they cut away from the singer, one of the anchors quipped, "Daylight hasn't come, man."

No .... no it had not.

I could care less if he lives or dies. He's been nothing but a big mouth trouble maker all his life. Just like Al Sharpton and the rest of those idiots.

He's 84, it's to be expected. Unlike some, I respect my elders. Plus, it probably made for more interesting news anyway if you really think about it.lol

His snoring probably makes more sense than some of the crap he spews

The guy is 84. What exactly do you want from him? Is anybody in your family 84?--Do you make fun of them too?
