(Video) Awesome! Poignant! Robin Williams as The American Flag!

Robin Williams

The comic genius of Robin Williams as the American flag begins with Old Glory (“call me Flag”) “in his birthday suit” as “the original thirteen,” remembering Betsy Ross stitching on his stars, saying, “This could be the start of something big!”

Hysterical, historical monologue as only Robin Williams can spin, but it’s his poignant observation at the end that makes this a truly special performance.

This is a segment from “I Love Liberty,” a two-hour television special created by Norman Lear, presented by People For the American Way in 1982 and, amazingly, is up to date as it can be. See this incredible performance on the Next Page, scroll down to the second image on the page.
