Glenn Beck pretends to puke over Meghan McCain ad
Glenn Beck, in a personification of class with a capital “k,” pretended to puke over this skin cancer PSA Meghan McCain did for the Style Network along with several other actresses.
Listen to Glenn deliver the goods…or pretend to…
Cindy McCain, Meghan’s mother and a skin cancer survivor (along with her father) was not amused:
Cindy McCain isn’t a fan of conservative host Glenn Beck. The wife of Arizona GOP Sen. John McCain tweeted her disdain for the departing Fox News pundit Wednesday saying, “I’m so glad Glenn Beck is leaving Fox. Enough vitriol and hate.”
And if Beck was confused about his role on the network, which he’s often equated with being an entertainer, Mrs. McCain sought to clear it up. ”Glenn, you are no rodeo clown,” she said. “They are decent and nice. You aren’t.”
Meghan McCain responds. Money quote:
While we’re on the subject of you vomiting on air, maybe we should have a little talk. Clearly you have a problem with me, and possibly women in general, but the truth is, it’s 2011 and I heard your show on Fox was canceled. Isn’t that an indication that the era of the shock jock pundit is over? Don’t you think that’s a sign you should be pulling it back a little? I mean, if you’re too conservative and outrageous for Fox, that should tell you something. There really is no need to make something like my participation in a skin cancer PSA into a sexist rant about my weight and physical appearance, because I’m going to let you in on a little secret, Glenn: you are the only one who looks bad in this scenario, and at the end of the day you have helped me generate publicity for my skin cancer PSA, a cause that I feel quite passionate about.
You’re a full-grown man with teenage daughters who are probably dealing with the sexist, body-obsessed media environment that is difficult for all women. Is this really the legacy you want to be leaving for yourself?
As a person who is known for his hot body, you must find it easy to judge the weight fluctuations of others, especially young women. If any of your daughters are ever faced with some kind of criticism of their physical appearance or weight, they should call me, because women’s body image is another issue I feel passionate about, and have become accustomed to dealing with and speaking with young women about on my college tours.
