Yesterday, CNN pundit Glenn Beck did an entire segment devoted to how much he hates Sen. Hillary Clinton’s (D-NY) voice. He called her “stereotypical” voice “nagging,” adding that it “just sticks in your ear like an ice pick,” makes you “envy the deaf,” and “makes angels cry.” Furthering the sexist stereotyping, Beck said, “She could be saying, ‘All right, Glenn, I want to give Glenn Beck $1 million,’ and all I’d hear is, ‘Take out the garbage.’”

Later in the segment, Beck and right-wing radio host Danny Bonaduce agreed that they’d rather have “purple monkeys crawling all over your body, and they’re covered in spiders” than listen to Clinton’s voice. Watch it:

On his March 15 show, Beck said that Clinton sounds like the “the stereotypical bitch.”

Transcript:

BECK: Hillary Clinton cannot be elected president, because there’s something about her vocal range. She’s that stereotypical, nagging…

SEN. HILLARY CLINTON (D), NEW YORK: If you were a stranger — if you were a stranger — if you were a stranger…

BECK: After four years, don’t you think every man in America will go insane? She could be saying, “Glenn Beck could be the greatest guy in the world.”

CLINTON: I’m so proud of you.

BECK: Glenn Beck, and I would be just like, “I can’t take it.”

(END VIDEO CLIP)

BECK: It can’t be just me. I know it’s not. I mean, if there’s somebody in your life whose voice just sticks in your ear like an ice pick, somebody who makes every part of you just clench every time they speak. Yes, the senator and presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton has a voice like that. It makes me envy the deaf. It does.

She could be saying, “All right, Glenn, I want to give Glenn Beck $1 million,” and all I’d hear is, “Take out the garbage.” Even the TV show “South Park” took a swing at her last night with her dreadful southern drawl. Take a look at this.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: It is so nice to be back in a small town like the one I came from.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

BECK: Oh, I swear to you. I think Hillary’s voice makes angels cry. They do. They’re up there. I wanted to get independent professional verification.

Joined now by two guests. One is a voice specialist. Her name is Nancy Daniels. And Danny Bonaduce, who, in the next few minutes, may say really mean things. I don’t know.

BECK: OK, Danny.

BONADUCE: Yes, sir.

BECK: You’ve gone through the DTs.

BONADUCE: I have indeed.

BECK: Yes.

BONADUCE: I’d do it again not to hear another clip from her.

BECK: I was going to say, purple monkeys crawling all over your body, and they’re covered in spiders, or this.

BONADUCE: I’ve got to go with the monkeys.

BECK: Wait, wait, wait, I’ve got to play the sound.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

CLINTON: That is not a record that New York needs in the United States Senate.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

BECK: Danny?

BONADUCE: I’m thinking monkeys with spiders on it is actually too good. It’s too fair of an offer.

BECK: I think so, too. Thank you, Nancy, Danny, I appreciate it. We’ll be back in just a bit.
