Glenn Beck: Hillary Clinton Would Have Sex With a Woman on the White House Desk for Popularity

He certainly knows how to draw attention to himself.

Glenn Beck re­turned to one of his fa­vor­ite hob­bies on Tues­day — bash­ing Hil­lary Clin­ton.

On his ra­dio show, Beck dis­cussed Demo­crats’ reti­cence to sup­port the gay-rights move­ment, and called Clin­ton a hy­po­crite for not sup­port­ing gay mar­riage un­til it be­came more pop­u­lar. (For the re­cord, Beck has sup­por­ted civil uni­ons in the past, and has ar­gued for tak­ing gov­ern­ment out of mar­riage en­tirely.)

“Wait a minute. You’re say­ing this is the civil-rights is­sue of our day, and you were such a cow­ard you couldn’t do it un­til Hol­ly­wood changed every­body’s mind,” he said. “These people are dis­gust­ing.”

One of Beck’s guests poin­ted out that Clin­ton “came out” in fa­vor of gay mar­riage last year — phras­ing that Beck seized upon with aplomb.

“Hil­lary came out last year?” he asked in­cred­u­lously. “Be­cause I didn’t think that had been of­fi­cially …,” he trailed off.

Beck con­tin­ued with a quip about Clin­ton’s hy­po­thet­ic­al sexu­al re­la­tions in the Oval Of­fice.

“I’m telling you, Hil­lary Clin­ton will be hav­ing sex with a wo­man on the White House desk if it be­comes pop­u­lar,” he said, to his col­leagues’ chuckles. “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.’ “

Beck’s Fox News show was can­celed in 2011 after three years on the air and an ex­odus of ad­vert­ising dol­lars. In the three years since then, Beck has turned to oth­er ways to boost his me­dia pres­ence. He star­ted the con­ser­vat­ive me­dia out­let The Blaze, hosts his own ra­dio show, and is even work­ing on his film­mak­ing de­but. If Clin­ton would do any­thing for at­ten­tion, as Beck sug­gests, she’s hardly alone in that qual­ity.

In Dropout Speech, Santorum Endorses Rubio

THE DETAILS

As expected after earlier reports on Wednesday, Rick Santorum ended his presidential bid. But less expected: he threw his support to Marco Rubio. After noting he spoke with Rubio the day before for an hour, he said, “Someone who has a real understanding of the threat of ISIS, real understanding of the threat of fundamentalist Islam, and has experience, one of the things I wanted was someone who has experience in this area, and that’s why we decided to support Marco Rubio.” It doesn’t figure to help Rubio much in New Hampshire, but the Santorum nod could pay dividends down the road in southern states.

Rubio, Trump Question Obama’s Mosque Visit

WHY WE CARE

President Obama’s decision to visit a mosque in Baltimore today was never going to be completely uncontroversial. And Donald Trump and Marco Rubio proved it. “Maybe he feels comfortable there,” Trump told interviewer Greta van Susteren on Fox News. “There are a lot of places he can go, and he chose a mosque.” And in New Hampshire, Rubio said of Obama, “Always pitting people against each other. Always. Look at today – he gave a speech at a mosque. Oh, you know, basically implying that America is discriminating against Muslims.”

Cruz Must Max Out on Evangelical Support through Early March

WHY WE CARE

For Ted Cruz, a strong showing in New Hampshire would be nice, but not necessary. That’s because evangelical voters only make up 21% of the Granite State’s population. “But from the February 20 South Carolina primary through March 15, there are nine states (South Carolina, Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Kentucky, Mississippi, and North Carolina) with an estimated white-Evangelical percentage of the GOP electorate over 60 percent, and another four (Texas, Kansas, Louisiana, and Missouri) that come in over 50 percent.” But after that, he better be in the catbird’s seat, because only four smaller states remain with evangelical voter majorities.

WHY WE CARE

Since his strong third-place finish in Iowa, Marco Rubio has won endorsement by two sitting senators and two congressmen, putting him in the lead for the first time of FiveThirtyEight‘s Endorsement Tracker. “Some politicians had put early support behind Jeb Bush — he had led [their] list since August — but since January the only new endorsement he has received was from former presidential candidate Sen. Lindsey Graham.” Meanwhile, the New York Times reports that fueled by resentment, “members of the Bush and Christie campaigns have communicated about their mutual desire to halt … Rubio’s rise in the polls.”

Sanders: Obama Is a Progressive

THE LATEST

“Do I think President Obama is a progressive? Yeah, I do,” said Bernie Sanders, in response to a direct question in tonight’s debate. “I think they’ve done a great job.” But Hillary Clinton wasn’t content to sit out the latest chapter in the great debate over the definition of progressivism. “In your definition, with you being the gatekeeper of progressivism, I don’t think anyone else fits that definition,” she told Sanders.
