Gross: Serial misogynist Bob Beckel directs vulgar remark at Andrea Tantaros

Liberal Fox News commentator Bob Beckel has a nasty habit of spewing verbal garbage at women. And this evening on “The Five,” he demonstrated once again why he’s “not cut out” for TV:

Nice, huh? A handful of viewers thought it was just hilarious:

And we wouldn’t blame her. Many people failed to see the humor and were thoroughly disgusted:

Ah, but Bob wears a (D), which confers instant immunity.

Just pathetic.

Bob has a lousy record when it comes to saying he’s sorry, but we certainly hope he’ll give Tantaros the apology she deserves.



We don’t know if there’s been apology, but there might have been a beating.

  • T. Baguette Jones

    Brian Kilmeade, anyone? Is this thing on?

  • OPNY

    She should have called him what he is: a vulgar, obese, communist cokehead. Fight fire with fire.

    • Jillane Kent

      Hence why I appreciate Beck’s network that much more. His employees manage to be both informative and polite, even when they disagree vociferously. Beckel is a pig.

  • rinodino

    ha ha, love it!!! Can’t wait to watch the five when I get home!!!! Beckel = The Charles Barkley of Politics….

    • Jillane Kent

      Would you want your daughter or wife subjected to this at work? I guess the “war on women” no longer concerns you, right?

      • TugboatPhil

        He has no daughter if he enjoys Beckel’s crap. When he says, “when I get home” he means when he goes upstairs for the dinner mom cooked him. And sadly, dad talks to mom just like Beckel.

    • Slapweasel

      I take it back. You’re not better than that first comment.

  • Cozy Powell III

    I have a monster crush on Andrea. I would gladly punch the old fart in the face for her if she wanted me to. What a loser that guy is.

    • rinodino

      Please, you know she likes it, both her and the other chick are always flirting with the old man on every show.

      • Catchance

        Eeuuw. Just like every rapist and wife beater around: “You know she likes it”.

      • Slapweasel

        Dude. You’re better than that.

        • TomJB

          No, he’s not.

      • Jillane Kent

        If and when you have a daughter, would you appreciate such vulgar comments from a much older man? If you have a wife, would you slap the man that made crude sexual remarks about her on the back?

      • GTFOBigGovt

        You need to learn that when a beautiful woman is being nice, engaging you in conversation when obligated to on television, laughing at stupid attention hoaring things you say, or eyerolling, it does not constitute “flirting”.

        This perspective explains the term “loser”. Beckel may not drink anymore, but he certainly has never resolved the issues leading to his abuse problems.

  • Lord Foggybottom

    Why do we get bent out of shape when liberals act like liberals?

    • Jillane Kent

      Even in a coarse world, standards of decorum should still exist. Personally, I hate seeing the “atta boys” and slaps on the back he is getting by those who claim a “war on women” exists.

      • Lord Foggybottom

        Agreed. I was mocking them. :)

        • Jillane Kent

          It is rather easy, isn’t it? Engaging them in debate is much like having a fist fight with a newborn puppy.

          • Lord Foggybottom

            I’ve found it easier to get sonnets out of a toddler than rationality out of a liberal.

          • Catchance

            All of their thoughts and beliefs are irrational and childish, so it’s not surprising. And just like toddlers when they don’t get their way, they throw tantrums. When they can’t back up their beliefs with facts they resort to name-calling.

          • Lord Foggybottom

            Can they actually back up their beliefs with facts?

          • Catchance

            Only made-up ones from HuffPo and Daily Kos.

  • radjahshelduck

    Some people seem to be forgetting that they put the program on a delay precisely because of Beckel’s mouth. So if the director had had an objection to what Beckel said, we’d never have heard it.

    • bonnieblue2A

      Flashback to last year when Eric literally saved that misogynist pig Beckle from choking to death on a piece of shrimp.

      Everyone can serve as an example. It would appear Beckle’s role is to serve as a bad example.

      • Catchance

        Bob seems to follow the motto: “If you can’t be a good example, you can at least be a horrible warning.”

  • Vera Shury

    In my 50+ years experience in business, he is TYPICAL for DUMORATS, that I divorced in Cleveland, Ohio. Caveat is some are really decent.

  • mickeyco

    Anyone care to bet the 4 guys who thought it was funny are between the ages of 15 and 23?

    • Catchance

      I don’t think I want to speculate on what they’re doing in their parents’ basement, either.

      • mickeyco

        ugh, thanks, cat

  • Justin Case

    That is untoward but to be fair I’ve seen the show and Andrea is very disrespectful to him relative to a young women and an older man. So she’s going to have to take it if she’s going to dish it out. American public discourse and manners in general are in disrepair.

    • WisconsinPatriot

      The next time Andrea sends a “nasal douche” comment at Bob, I may see your point. Bob is just filth.

      • Justin Case

        They are all trying to be “edgy” on that show. Ratings you know. We’re writing about it. Must be working.

    • detroit19

      Pretty sure Andrea has NEVER lobbed a sexual innuendo at creepy Bob Beckel.

      • Justin Case

        She talks down to him – makes references about his torrid past – the age difference makes it uncomfortable. Show respect to get respect.

        • Slapweasel

          I don’t completely agree with your premise, (it is lazy and unequal), but it seems the ladies on the show aren’t “offended” enough to threaten his job.

          Making truthful comments about someone’s past does not equate to “stick this hairy carrot in your…”

          I refuse to be “offended” by it if they aren’t.

          • Justin Case

            OK -Lazy and unequal? I didn’t mean to imply she should be the only one to practice good manners. However, I think we’re both aware enough to know they are TV personalities with a schtick to engage viewers and boost ratings.

          • Slapweasel


          • Jillane Kent

            We do not know their personal feelings. Though I’ve long since given up cable, I remember them to be quite professional with the exception of Beckel. Perhaps they are able to cover any negative feelings or perhaps, as you say, they are not offended. This really matters naught as such allusions are beneath the dignity that a national stage and ostensibly serious news network call for.

        • Jillane Kent

          Bringing up his drug use, widely acknowledged and referenced by Beckel himself, means that she “deserves” to be sexually debased at work?

          • Justin Case

            Well what’s the old saying? “Lay down with dogs wake up with fleas.” She could choose to be on a more mature show. Without Beckel’s hijinx would the show get as much press as it does now? Who knows?

  • Stone Bryson

    I stopped tuning into The Five ages ago. Beckel is a sick individual, and the fact that his co-hosts continue to act as enablers made the show impossible for me to watch. They justifiably complain about Maher’s misogynistic comments about conservative women, yet give Bob a pass (and even at times defend him). IMO misogyny is misogyny and must be challenged at all times, even if the person uttering the offensive comment is a friend.

    • TomJB

      Bob has to go. I still watch maybe twice a week and have it on XM while commuting home, but the quality of the show is much better with Juan Williams or another backup sitting in for Bob.

    • BristolGOP Backup

      “A hairy carrot”? That’s the best he could come up with?

      He’s the Bobby Heenan of Fox, except he’s not clever or likable.

  • Danny Wheeler

    Bob Beckel, you sick bastage!

    • orringtonmom (D)

      such a fargin icehole.

  • detroit19

    What is the matter with Bob Beckel? He’s worse than the creepy ‘uncle’ your mom warns you against standing within 10 feet of at family gatherings.

  • Marty Luther

    Hairy carrot may be Beckel’s Hara-kiri.

  • Rico Mapster

    Andrea is a class act, and doesn’t deserve to be treated like that. But Beckel can’t help being the liberal pig that he is.

  • Elrod

    Bob acted like a real jerk today, what gives? Getting even because Eric gets on your case? Come on Bob act classy like the the others.

  • michael s

    So start a campaign to have Beckel fired. Tantaros often says the last acceptable form of bigotry is misogyny towards conservative females. Go after Beckel the way liberals went after Rush over Sandra

    • Slapweasel

      He should be chided and derided, but not fired. I refuse to be as “outraged” as many others. Bob is and has always been Bob. They knew it before they hired him and the ladies continue to accept it so;

      …call me “nonplussed”, but not “outraged”.

      • TomJB

        Bob shouldn’t be fired for being himself, agreed. He should be fired for not contributing anything other than cliche talking points to the conversation. I don’t know if he got lazy or gave up, but I distinctly remember him having more thoughts of his own in the past than these days.

    • Jillane Kent

      Better yet. Tune out. The Five doesn’t qualify as news and is a weak sister to Red Eye. Hurt them financially and they’ll pay attention.

      • seek456

        nobody said the five was news. I enjoy the show so you go ahead and turn the channel.

        Red Eye is a late night program. Beckel is an idiot but very interesting at times. He’s a dirty old man – so is Biden. How do we hurt Biden financially? Just gave him a raise didn’t we?

  • FreedomFighter

    Moral decay is the new norm

  • sqeptiq

    And that’s part of why Fox loves having Beckel on. The drunken pig presents a bad image of liberals.

    • Justin Case

      Bingo – and the same is true when another agenda is being promoted, e.g., Alex Jones on Piers Morgan last night.

    • Karl H

      I don’t know most liberals I know are fat lazy bastards with weak gutter bound minds and chemical dependency issues.

  • Fake Obama Follower

    Whoa! Next thing you’ll be telling me is snow is cold.

  • Tonguepiercer

    Put Bob on the food network ” Chopped” Please

  • John Leon

    This zeppelin should eat a carrot once in a while. The man hasn’t seen his penis since the Carter administration.

    • LightSabre


    • LightSabre


  • Hiraghm

    I have mixed feelings on this.
    On the one hand, I’m disgusted at the vulgar reference being made publicly.
    On the other hand, hey, you wanted to be equal. 30 years ago, you females promised that we males wouldn’t have to change our environment to accommodate you. (and yet we have, endlessly… seriously… baby changing stations in the MEN’S room?).

    Welcome to being treated as an equal.

  • Steve_J

    She should’ve told him she doesn’t use baby carrots.

  • twinx

    Blob Beckel’s just jealous ‘cuz he’s only got a hairless Brussels sprout. And that’s probably being generous.

  • fivebyfive

    you stay classy blob

  • KhadijahMuhammad

    Andrea’s a class act.

    Besides, she can always poke one of his eyes out with those to-die-for five inch pumps she wears on the show…….

  • gracepmc

    If we are on the side of civility and respect then I have to disagree with Andrea. It is not ok. Can’t really expect the other side to clean up their side of the street if we are willing to dismiss our own bad acts. We don’t excuse the admittedly more crudely offensive Bill Mahr and we shouldn’t excuse Bob just because he is a liberal on Fox and the relationship between Bob and Andrea is long standing. Similarly if the comment was made by any other person on the Five it would not be ok. Fan of The Five, but we gotta’ start somewhere. Agree with SB, misogyny is misogyny.

  • Ty Pryor

    Sounds like a comment from a man who’s packing a hairy baby carrot

    • La’Milton

      did you know that baby carrots are adult carrots shaved down to the cores? blue my mind.

  • stuckinIL4now

    I hardly bother anymore to tune in even to FOX. It’s either a steady parade of insufferable crass liberal spewers who I won’t bother to name since I’m sure you all know who they are, followed by a steady stream of video clips of even more insufferable crass Dembecile politicians along with Ojacka&& in the WH. What’s the point? If I want to see that whole pile of garbage I could just tune into the scumplicit slimestream media channels.

  • Kleverabevera

    The funny thing was just a few segments before they were discussing how bad “Train Wreck T.V.” is. I love the five, but I must say Bob is just that. He is still better than Juan.

  • Guest

    I don’t even like Bob Beckel but I’m OK with his remark because if that cow Andrea Tantaros can say only men are bad parents then she deserves vulgar sexist comments

  • blueniner

    What do you expect from a braindead former druggie and Alcoholic, Beckel was over the line, but like everything else, Liberals get away with things Conservatives dont.

  • rant stocks

    Listen readers….need to come together to petition FOX to remove Bob (the filthy mouth) Beckel from there programing…LETS DO IT.

  • Karl H

    Bob Beckel Old fat white misogynist, racist, moron…Sounds like a model Democrat to me.

  • Paul J. Citro

    Typical liberal moron who couldn’t find his a** even though his head is lodged there.

  • michael s

    This was the man who said about joy behar “I don’t know who this broad is,she’s as ugly as sin, yet I’d still date her.” Demand fox news suspend him if you love Andrea.

  • Brewster52

    The lovely ladies on The Five shouldn’t have to listen to Beckel’s vulgarness, and the audience shouldn’t also. To direct such a comment as this toward Andrea is unforgivable!

  • Fido

    The women, unlucky enough to be seated at the same end of the table as Beckel,

    habitually move as far away from him as possible…it is comical.

    He has no clue that he is as popular as chronic flatulence in a spacesuit.

  • walterc

    Name calling is what liberals always resort to when they are losing the argument. I don’t watch anything with Beckel on. Juan Williams or Kirsten Powers are the liberals that can listen to. They can at least have a conversation without sliding into the gutter. Unlike Beckel, Geraldo, or Colmes.

  • TocksNedlog

    Poor Bob has to wax HIS carrot all on his lonesome.
