Take the Plank Out of Your Own Eye! Fox News Host With Sex Scandal Past Calls Bachelorette a ‘Slut’

Bob Beckel is ironically the ‘liberal’ side of the Fox News team. He is also a devout Christian and wields his theological views with a big stick.

Yet, even his own Fox co-hosts were horrified when he took to the air to slut-shame Bachelorette star Andi Dorfman for sleeping with one of her suitors while on the show.

“She’s a slut!” Beckel shouted while the other more conservative hosts moaned loudly.

After co-host Andrea Tantaros shot back, “Are you kidding me right now?” Beckel, clearly not taking the cue, continued on.

“I’m not kidding you,” Beckel insisted. “When she sleeps with somebody else, and doesn’t tell the guy about it [she is a slut].”

He also said that despite his own dalliances, he had a right to shame the woman – but not the man involved – for her sexual choices.

“I’m not on some Bachelorette,” Beckel stressed, pointing out that his own ‘insignificant sins’ or peccadillos should not impact his views. “I have never tried to hide any of my own peccadillos.”

Actually, to be more correct, Beckel’s sins were definitely hidden until the internet world dredged up proof he had a paid a young woman for sex and she – noting he was big in the Democratic Party back then – tried to bilk him out of serious cash.

That sexual scandal involving Beckel was quite a stir in 2002 considering he was a public figure, but somehow the now Fox Host seemed to see no relationship to his own ‘outing’ to his decision to call the reality star a ‘slut’ on live television.

Yet perhaps Beckel, the outspoken Christian, should put a pause on his slut-shaming and take some time to read some advice direct from Jesus himself.

“You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s [and sister’s] eye,” Jesus told his followers in the Bible Beckel loves to wave, encouraging those even with only peccadillos not to rush to judge others and call them names.
