Glenn Beck accused several politicians, but especially Hillary Clinton, of hypocrisy on issues like same-sex marriage during his radio show today. The former Fox News host who now makes an estimated $90 million a year, according to Forbes, chastised Hillary Clinton for not supporting same-sex marriage when it wasn’t “popular” to do so.
If same-sex marriage really “is the civil rights issue of our day,” then why didn’t she support it earlier, Beck asked.
Rather than recognizing that people can change their minds, Beck called those who came to support same-sex marriage later in the game, “despicable” and “disgusting.”
Beck also joked that Hillary Clinton “came out last year,” suggesting she is a lesbian, after one of his colleagues said she had “come out” in favor of marriage equality.
And then, he uttered this:
“I’m telling you, I’m telling you, Hillary Clinton will be having sex with a woman on the, on the White House desk if it becomes popular. 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.’”
Earlier this month, Beck, who owns his own media company, said he’s unsure if he should call LGBT people “gay,” “queer,” or “homosexual,” and said he fears a pink slip if he uses the wrong term. He also said LGBT groups “are becoming nothing but a terrorist organization.”
And last fall, Glenn Beck strongly suggested to parents they should physically bully their kids so they know rights come from God.
