Former Fox News pundit Glenn Beck dedicated a portion of his online broadcast Monday to slamming President Barack Obama for a pre-Super Bowl interview in which the chief executive expressed concerns about the safety of football. Beck called Obama a “girl,” a “woman” and the “chick-in-chief” for his statements and announced that he was revoking the president’s “man card.”
Beck was referring to remarks Obama made in an interview with “The New Republic” in which he said that, given the rise in concerns about head trauma in football players, he would have to think “long and hard” about letting his own son, if he had one, play football. Obama echoed that statement in an interview with Scott Pelley of CBS on Sunday.
Beck played back sections of the Pelley interview, interjecting the word “girl” and phrases like “He’s a girl!” while the president spoke, then shifted his voice up to a soprano register. At the end of the CBS interview, he lit into Obama with a full barrage of schoolyard taunts.
“His man card has been revoked by me, and that’s saying something” Beck said. “When I’m saying you’re a girl, you are absolutely 100 percent girl power.”
He went on to criticize Obama’s tendency to give lengthy “philosophical” answers to questions, “like a little spider weaving a little web,” which Beck held up as further evidence of the president’s unmanliness.
“You’re a full-fledged woman. I never heard anybody but a woman say that,” he continued. “Stop being such a chick, Mr. President. Stop it. You’re commander-in-chief. Not chick-in-chief.”
