Glenn Beck Goes ‘Over the Line’ by Mocking Malia – He mimics her question on his radio show today

Glenn Beck Goes ‘Over the Line’ by Mocking Malia – He mimics her question on his radio show today.

Glenn Beck spent a good amount of time on his radio show today mimicking and mocking Malia Obama over her “Daddy, did you plug the hole yet” question, reports Media Matters. (President Obama relayed her question to the public yesterday during his Gulf press conference.) At one point, Beck uses his Malia voice to ask, “Why do you hate black people so much,” and at another he says, “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?’” Way out of bounds, writes Jon Bershad at Mediaite. (The site also has the audio clip.) Obama may well deserve a ribbing over his performance, but not his 11-year-old daughter. Beck “clearly stepped over the line when he began insulting and denigrating” Malia. “Considering how gung ho Beck’s been recently about protecting politicians’ home life, you’d think he’d know better.”

Typical for the right-wing –

Glenn Beck Apologizes for Mocking Malia

That was quick. Hours after a clip of Glenn Beck mimicking and mocking Malia Obama became a hot topic, he apologized on his website. “In discussing how President Obama uses children to shield himself from criticism, I broke my own rule about leaving kids out of political debates,” he wrote. “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.” Beck began taking flak for the segment—it was on his radio show, where he tends to go further than on TV—which played off her “Daddy, did you plug the hole yet?” question. The audio clip from Mediaite is in the gallery.
