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.
