TLP: Glenn Beck's Problem With Little Girls
First, he's got a shitty job. Granted, he asked for it, but still. Wars no one can figure out how to end, the fucked-up financial system, dealing with Congress, dealing with congressional elections, "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," tar balls and "Top Kill" failures and random racist nutjob death threats.
And then there's Glenn Beck. CNN was only too happy to share the details of what its former talking head had done:
Conservative talk-show host Glenn Beck apologized Friday after appearing to mock President Barack Obama’s 11-year-old daughter on his radio program earlier in the day.Obama's got enough problems. He ought to know better than to give Beck material by mentioning that his daughter had asked him about the BP oil spill, saying, "Did you plug the hole yet, Daddy?"
In a statement posted on his website Friday afternoon, Beck said he broke his own rule about “leaving kids out of political debates.”
“In discussing how President Obama uses children to shield himself from criticism, I broke my own rule about leaving kids out of political debates,” said Beck in the statement. “The children of public figures should be left on the sidelines. It was a stupid mistake and I apologize–and as a dad I should have known better.”
Beck’s apology came hours after the radio host and his sidekicks imitated a pretend conversation between the president and Malia, in which Beck has his version of 11-year-old ask a series of questions that included “Daddy…why do you hate black people so much?”
So, after Beck's hilarious yuks on the radio, did his child ask him, "Daddy, why are you such a stupid asshole?"
