Glenn Beck chowed down Rosie O’Donnell like a bucket of meatballs. He was on her like white on rice. Okay, that’s enough. But seriously, he demolished her:
BECK: I can’t take it that Rosie O’Donnell can be put on ABC television, mainstream, unquestioned, by the mainstream media. She can say whatever she wants to say, she can take the sides with, what’s his name, Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, a guy who was the mastermind behind 9-11. She can make him into some sort of a martyr without anybody at ABC, NBC, CBS — mainstream media, they say nothing about that. Nothing. She goes off on her opinion every step of the way. But there’s a conservative on the set who’s shut down. You can’t just say your opinion. What the hell is this show all about, you fat witch? What is this show about?
BECK: I’m just — I’m saying, because the whale jokes and the blubber that she has just pouring out of her eyes —
STU: There’s no reason to go to her weight. I mean, she’s the type of idiot that watches documentaries online about 9-11 and conspiracies that a fourth-grader made on their PowerPoint and believes them. So there’s much more to go to on that direction than just her rolls and rolls of hideous fat.
BECK: Do you know how many oil lamps we could keep burning just on Rosie O’Donnell’s fat?
STU: See, that — that’s —
STU: You’re back to the facile whale jokes, and there’s no —
BECK: Think about how much perfume we could make out of Rosie O’Donnell. Again, too easy.
MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann, host of Countdown to No Ratings, was furious with Glenn for his “weightphobia.” It was just last year Olbermann called FNC’s Roger Ailes “fat ass.” Olbermann Watch has more in last night’s recap.
