CNN’s Sanchez Blasts Beck for Cringe-Worthy Mocking of Obama’s Daughter

May 31, 2010

(ChattahBox)—Is there any line Glenn Beck won’t cross for ratings? The answer is no. The Fox News’ deranged conspiracy-theorist-in-chief mercilessly attacked President Obama’s daughter Malia on his radio show last week. She is 11-years-old. And CNN’s Rick Sanchez chose Beck as today’s poster child for the “List U Don’t Want 2 Be On,” calling the self-described rodeo clown’s mocking of Malia, “cringe-worthy” and “out of bounds.”

“Daddy? Daddy? Daddy, did you plug the hole yet? Daddy?” Beck went on in this manner for several long minutes in his repulsive version of a little girl’s voice. Beck was responding to President Obama’s Gulf oil spill press conference, when he remarked that his daughter Malia asked him, “Did you plug the hole yet, Daddy?”

During his long mocking monologue attacking the President’s daughter, Beck also smeared Malia’s level of education.

BECK: “Did you plug the hole yet, daddy?” Is that’s their — that’s the level of their education, that they’re coming to — they’re coming to daddy and saying ‘Daddy, did you plug the hole yet?’ ” Plug the hole!”

But Beck wasn’t finished with his attack on an 11-year-old girl. He just had to bring race into the equation along with his sidekick Pat Gray.

BECK: (imitating Malia) “Why do you hate black people so much?”

GRAY: (imitating Obama) “I’m part white, honey.”

Beck continued making fun of Malia in his mocking little girl voice:

BECK (imitating Malia) “Why, why, why, why, do you still let the polar bears die? Daddy, why do you still let Sarah Palin destroy the environment? Why are — Daddy, why don’t you just put her in some sort of a camp?”

Rick Sanchez was clearly shocked, while listening to clips of Beck smearing Malia. “That is a grown man doing an impression of the president’s daughter,” said Sanchez. And he was particularly disgusted with Beck’s inane giggling. His viewers agreed the performance was cringe-worthy — “especially the chuckling and the snorting and the yucking it up with his radio sidekick while he’s making fun of her,” said Sanchez.

Even worse, Beck is a hypocrite. Imagine that. Just days before attacking Malia, Beck opined on his show together with his guest Sarah Palin, that the families of public figures should be left alone. “Leave people’s families alone,” said Beck. And Beck falsely stated that he’s done nothing but “protect the families” of political figures, merely questioning the White House for inserting family members into debates.

Really? Beck must have forgotten his mean-spirited mocking of Michelle Obama’s appearance, as he ridiculed her hair style and gown worn at the state dinner for the President of Mexico. “Did you see the picture of his wife yesterday, all dolled up? ‘Sex in the City’ is what it said on the Drudge Report,” said Beck. “She looks positively like she’s trying to be some Greek statue.”I don’t think I’ve ever seen the first lady with her — excuse the expression — but with her breasts all smooshed up,” continued Beck on his radio show.

Beck has also previously attacked President Obama’s mother, aunt and he linked the President’s two daughters to Obama’s former controversial pastor Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

Again last year, while defending Sarah Palin in her feud with David Letterman, Beck railed against attacks on family members of public figures. “And I think we need to stay off of people’s families. I don’t care if it’s left, right — I don’t care who the person is. We don’t make fun of their families,” he said.

After receiving criticism, Beck issued a half-hearted apology on his website, in which he still slammed President Obama for using his children as a shield:

“In discussing how President Obama uses children to shield himself from criticism, I broke my own rule about leaving kids out of political debates. 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.”

    Remember, Beck is Rush Limbaugh’s understudy – he’s probably looking to hire a Hispanic housekeeper so he can send her out to buy illegal drugs for him, just like his hero Limbaugh did.

    This is just more proof that Glenn Beck is a moron. His mentality is even lower than Rush Limbaughs, if that is possible.

    First off, it’s sad that this is what get’s the most attention and the majority of true things that Beck has said go un noticed.

    Second, get over it, it was wrong but it was no more wrong than Michell Obama calling her two kids fat and then taking it out on the rest of the children in the US.

    Beck isn’t always right and he can be over the top but he’s gotten a ton of things right.

    Beck is a hateful and racist moron. He needs to plug the whole in the middle of his face.

    Beck is wrong. Where is the apology? The Presidents minor children should be off limits. The damn press treated the Bush twins that way, even when they went on drunken underage binges while in college.

    To “The Guy”: Beck basically will say anything to get a rating, makes people listen if they agree with him or not. Basically he is a useless bag of wind. You also need to do your homework. Obesity in the US is an epidemic. The statistics support that. The children of America have poor eating habits and are less active. Metabolic syndrome and diabetes are developing at younger ages. Absolutely no one in the health, nutrition, medical and food arenas will not admit we have a problem. Although I personally do not agree with some of Michelle Obama’s approaches, improving children’s nutrition and physical activity is a necessity, not a luxury. We all need to be retrained in healthy eating.

    To all that complain about Glenn Beck – JUST STOP LISTENING. Forget the shock factor. This guy is about ratings. Poor ratings mean he gets fired. Simple solution.

    Juvenile behavior! Par for the course for Beck. Tea partiers, take note!

    I have heard jokes about Beck’s daughters, but I would never repeat them. I just cite his hypocrisy.
