“I didn’t use any crude language! That was not crude language. I apologize for crude language. Oh, what? I’didn’t, c’mon, man, you can’t hang me with that! That’s not right. There was nothing wrong with that! One More Thingis up next. Ahhhh.”
Fox News The Five’s foul-mouthed Bob Beckel blabbing to invisible Master Control after suggesting nudists were “gang banged, probably” as children.
It’s just another in a long line of raw, unhinged Beckel on-air exposure that, in the aggregate, should result in a suspension, and for broadcast networks, would garner hefty FCC fines.
The issue: San Francisco Board of Supervisors voting on banning public nudity.
The question from The Five’s co-host Dana Perino: ” What happened to these people as children that they don’t want to wear any clothes?’
Beckel: “‘Most of them were gang banged probably.”
Oh-oh, Bob’s stepping in it again as The Five gang jumps on him.
Beckel: “I don’t know – they could have had sexual assault on them.”
That makes sense.
Oh, and the ban on public nudity passed on a thin 6-5 vote.
“A colorful explanation.” Mediaite on Bob‘s bizarre brain dropping.
Not exactly the reaction on Twitter. UK Daily Mail:
One user tweeted: ‘I wonder if [Perino] is proud to sit & made to shut up next to the misogynist men on [Fox News]. This is disgusting.’
Another suggested that Beckel has ‘evolved from the village idiot.’
One more suggested that Beckel’s remark earns him the distinction of the ‘Joe Biden of Fox News.’
Somebody at Fox News has to master control over Beckel. His behavior is intolerable and it is clear he has zero control over himself.
