BREAKING NEWS: Glenn Beck is an asshole!
Glenn Beck spent almost eight minutes on the radio today pretending to vomit at the sight of a bare-shouldered Meghan McCain.
McCain, along with several other women, filmed a PSA that encouraged the use of sunscreen. They referred to venturing out without sunscreen as "being naked."
Beck is apparently so disgusted at the sight of the very pretty Ms. McCain that the mere sight of her makes him want to puke. Throughout the eight minutes Beck mocked her physical appearance while making retching sounds whenever her name was mentioned.
This is one classy dude.
You can listen to the arrogant prick's audio clip here but after about 2-3 minutes you will have heard all you need to hear.
Beck has talked a lot lately about the need for us to learn to love each other and show compassion. I guess he's excluded himself from that rule?
Another way to look at this story is that this guy...
is making fun of this woman...
because of her looks.
What a guy, what a role model, what an asshole.
Meghan's mother, Cindy McCain tweeted the following response to Mr. Beck:
I’m so glad Glenn Beck is leaving Fox. Enough vitriol and hate. Glenn you are no rodeo clown. They are decent and nice. You aren’t.
Meghan McCain wrote a response on The Daily Beast where she works. It reads in part:
While we’re on the subject of you vomiting on air, maybe we should have a little talk. Clearly you have a problem with me, and possibly women in general, but the truth is, it’s 2011 and I heard your show on Fox was canceled. Isn’t that an indication that the era of the shock-jock pundit is over? Don’t you think that’s a sign you should be pulling it back a little? I mean, if you’re too conservative and outrageous for Fox, that should tell you something.[...]You’re a full-grown man with teenage daughters who are probably dealing with the sexist, body-obsessed media environment that is difficult for all women. Is this really the legacy you want to be leaving for yourself?
It's not likely that Beck will issue an apology without his trademark, "if," as in "...if I offended Ms. McCain...." It's not likely that his radio program will show any evidence of maturity and seriousness either. Beck is a sleazy propagandist, liar, hypocrite and offensive demagogue. That is not likely to change any time soon.
Update: Normally, not matter how outrageous Beck's behavior or rhetoric is, he gets lots of support for his from his flock on Glenn Beck dot com. Not so with this story. Check out the comment section of "Meghan McCain gets naked, Glenn vomits." With the extent of the backlash seen there, expect an "apology" soon.
Update, 5/15/2011: On his MSNBC show, The Last Word, Lawrence O'Donnell reported on Senator McCain's response to Beck's childish attack upon his daughter.

If only Ms. McCain had a boyfriend ....
Also, as reported on Mediaite, during his Beck and Call segment on his Fox "News" show, Mr. Beck's friend and colleague told Beck, “If I was Cindy McCain, I’d slap the hell out of you.”

He calles her "lucious," "delectable appetizer," and actaully called it a good ad. He never once said a negative thing about Meghan. He poured water into a trash can and made a few rechthing sounds, but never said a negative thing about Meghan. He "puked" the first time before Meghan part of the ad was even played. A total of three times before her part is even played. Are you begining to ommit a few facts are we Victor? Where is the mocking comments from Beck?
Todd is a Beckerhead toady who can rationalize the most disgusting comments.
Todd also has commented on Glenn Beck dot com that he does not "give a shit" that Beck lies. Translation: Todd has no credibility. I've told him that probably 50 times, but he doesn't grasp that once he admitted that Beck's lies do not concern him, then his views, his comments, his opinions matter not a bit.
Even Bill O'Reilly told Beck last week that “If I was Cindy McCain, I’d slap the hell out of you,” but Todd is an expert at making Beck out to be a hero and an honest commentator.
Todd can ignore what the McCains are saying to Mr. Beck because Todd is a hard core sycophant to Beck. For Todd and his ilk, Beck can do no wrong.
Todd, calling a woman a "delectable appetizer" is sexist and crude at best.
Also, Todd, you're addressing the owner of this blog over a post written by a guest. Go ask Roger your stupid question.
Roger is only a guest because you asked for permission to "republish" his work. Thus I am asking you the question.
For Victor's follwers Plesae go to Glenn Beck dot com and see where Victor is so doeperate to spread his lies tat he is even messaging my wife on facebook. http://www.glennbeck.com/2011/05/11/meghan-mccain-gets-naked-glenn-vomits/#comment-204289201
Todd ,can you HEAR??? Victor has wrote many FACTUAL articles about Beck!Furthermore,I think you MISSED,what Beck SAID.I take great offense,personally,at this moron(Beck)who calls himself a Christian.(never mind the fact,he had to go shopping for a Religion,before remarrying,UGG?)
Cancer is NO laughing matter ,TODD.To think that Beck,instead of laughing at a very attractive McCain,and istening to her MESSAGE(he does have a very small attention span).I myself have lost my parents(at both 59)and my first Husband (in his 40s),and my Brother is a miracle Cancer surivivor!Cancer is nothing BUT FUNNY.What "Meagan"was trying to do was INTELLIGENT,compared to beck's more ignorance. Before attacking his critics,please take the time to stop worshiping him,and LISTEN to the Moronic (a word I dont like to use,but fits him well)ideas,only beck can come up with.
I will stipulate that the comments were sexist and crude. However, that does not make them mocking, as Roger called them. You Victor as the owner of this blog made a choice to post it on your blog, therefore I am asking you Victor Tiffany why you decided to post something that is a lie on your blog, even though it came from someone else.
Will you also be willing to stipulate that it was a parody? Thus, it is protected by the same Amendment that you so love to claim that Glenn Beck and his crew violate. The First Amendment, and therefore is legal under Hustler Magazine Inc. v. Jerry Fallwell?
Come on Victor, tell you vast audience (pun intended) why I do not give a shit about the lie, and which lie it is, why the lie by omission from the self proclaimed expert on Glenn Beck, the very same person that criticizes Beck for his own lies of omission. Why must you rationalize the lies that you allow to be posted on a blog that you own.
Did you miss Beck on O'Riely Friday admitting that this was childish? Moreover, that he was saying the same thing that McCain and the rest in the Video were saying? They want you to cover up with chemicals, many of which are carcinogens (that is cancer-causing agents for you morons). Beck just wants her to cover up with clothing, which will protect you from Solar.
Gee. the man went searching for a church that his family would feel comfortable with, and makes no apologies ofr it, ala President Obama and Rev. Jeremiah Wright.
Care to get a real argument?
Todd, you can turn blind eyes to the vulgarian that you so love, but he's still a vulgarian, liar, hypocrite, fraud and disgusting example of a supposed "Christian."
You have now been exposed as the toady that you are.
Todd, you don't know what a pun is. I think that you were trying to be sarcastic.
No one will argue here that Beckerheads are the sharpest tools in the shed.
Defending this most despicable attack on McCain takes real balls, Todd, but not a lot of ethical reasoning. In fact, lacking ethical reasoning would be a requirement for supporting a blatant hypocrite like Beck.
You are a real tool (pun intended).
Do you even know what the term stipulate means? It means that I am granting the fact that you are arguing about the comments being sexist and crude. Even Beck told O'Reily that they were childish on Friday. If I stipulate that his commetns are sexist and crude, then how am I defending him Victor? I am only saying that they did not reach the magnitude that you and Mr. Fallihee make them out to be.
Just once I would like for you to have all of the facts before you post. To actually refute facts with facts and not ad homienm, however, I should be used to that from you by now, as you demonstrated months ago that you have no understanding of what it means to debate.
Gee Victor, 100k views over 11 MONTHS is not a vast audience, you think I might be sarcastic? You sir are a tool writing this blog that means nothing. I am just having fun refuting all of your idiotic posts. (You will not hurt my feelings by not positing this one, it was meant to raise your ire, ask your wife to explain that to ya).
Todd, I know how useless it is to debate with someone who twists the meaning of works, changes the facts and refuses to "give a shit" that Beck lies.
Once you admitted that you don't care that Beck lies, you lost ALL CREDIBILITY. What I demonstrated months ago on Glenn Beck dot com is that you don't care about Beck's lies. That is ALL I needed to demonstrate.
You don't think that what Beck did by fake puking at the thought of naked Meghan McCain makes him an asshole because you love and defend Beck no matter what he does.
Then why do you keep twisting the meaning of the very words that you try to use? Why do you keep using Ad Hominem against me rather than debating the substance of my arguments? This is not helping your credibility much, as I am Agreeing to your arguments in part. You are just too dense to understand that.
I'm not using "ad hominem" attacks against you Todd; you really don't "give a shit" that Beck lied about writing the "Truth has no agenda" slogan. That admission makes YOU the one without credibility, although your many deceitful, character assassination attempts on me at Glenn Beck dot com tried to make it the other way around.
YOu come here and insult me, and I'm supposed to be nice to you? I think that you've been drinking too much of the spiked kool-aid Todd.
I'm not a tool of anyone; I am an independent researcher and analyst exposing Beck for what he truly is: a liar, a hypocrite, a fraud, a yellow propagandist and a cult of personality. You, Todd, are the tool (Beck) of this Koch tool you so love as an unofficial member of his cult following. You, Todd, should be ashamed of yourself for supporting such a proven liar.
