Cindy McCain took Glenn Beck to the Twitter woodshed for the radio/TV talker’s disparaging remarks about her daughter Meghan’s appearance in a public service announcement urging protection against the cancer risk of sun worshipping. "I'm so glad Glenn Beck is leaving Fox. Enough vitriol and hate," Mom McCain tweeted in reaction to Beck’s puerile attack against Meghan.
The daughter of U.S. Sen. John McCain is one of several women featured in the ad — others include Brandy, Ashlan Gorse, and Tempestt Bledsoe — which compares not wearing sunscreen with being naked and shows the women seemingly, but discreetly, naked.
Story continues below video of the public service announcement.
During Beck's show Wednesday, he and his co-hosts mocked Meghan mercilessly, with Beck pretending to vomit repeatedly while looking at McCain's ad or even hearing her name. "Just try to imagine John McCain naked with long blond hair," he said. ". . . That's USDA Prime right there."
That really riled Cindy, who has had skin cancer herself and who tweeted again: "Glenn, you are no rodeo clown," she said. "They are decent and nice. You aren't."
Meghan added to the salvo, retweeting her mother’s comments to more than 107,000 followers. And later, she fired off a tweet of her own: "Does anyone know if Glenn Beck has daughters?"
Beck announced his departure from Fox News in April, but he still will to develop and produce TV projects for the channel. His daily show is expected to end this year.
