Conservative radio host Glenn Beck predicted that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would have sex with a lesbian “on the White House desk” if public opinion called for it during his show Tuesday.
The comments, first noted by Right Wing Watch, came as Beck riffed with his co-hosts on the issue of marriage equality, mocking Clinton for officially announcing her support for the cause in 2013 after years of opposition. The banter included more than a couple thinly veiled accusations questioning Clinton’s sexuality.
After his colleague said she “came out” in favor same-sex marriage last year, Beck quipped back, “What I heard you just say is Hillary came out last year?”
“I’m telling you,” Beck continued. “Hillary Clinton will be having sex with a woman on the White House desk if it becomes popular. She’ll be just like, she will be, she’ll be like ‘Look, the arc of history wasn’t ready for a president to be a lesbian and have sex on the desk.‘ “
This is far from Beck’s first swipe at Clinton. Back in 2007 he predicted she could never be elected president because of her voice, calling her a “stereotypical b****.”
The conservative pundit has made sexist jokes about other female politicians in the past as well. In 2012 he rejected the idea of sharing a presidential ticket with former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin if he would have to occupy the VP slot.
“A Palin-Beck ticket I’m absolutely ruling out,” he said, adding he’d consider a “Beck-Palin ticket.”
“Can you imagine what a, what an administration with the two of us would be like?” he continued. “She’d be yapping or something and I’d say ‘I’m sorry. Why am I hearing your voice? I’m not in the kitchen.‘ “
