Last night on CNN Headline News, host Glenn Beck and former GOP consultant and radio host Michael Graham discussed a new video of President Bill Clinton and Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-NY) spoofing the final episode of the Sopranos.

During the conversation, Graham asked Beck if he wanted to see the Clintons murdered in the video. “[S]eriously, Glenn, didn’t you at one point want to see, like, Paulie Walnuts or someone come in and just whack them both right there. Wouldn’t that have been great?” Beck responded with a smile, “No, I did not want to see that.” Graham said, “C’mon. … I wanted that.”

Though Beck said he didn’t want to see the Clintons murdered on video, he smiled at the comments and failed to reprimand his guest or end the interview. Moreover, Michael Graham has a history of offensive remarks. In 2005, he was fired from Washington radio station WMAL-AM after he labeled Islam “a terrorist organization” on the air.

Previously, Beck has called Hillary Clinton “the stereotypical bitch” and said her “stereotypical, nagging” voice is “like an icepick” in my ear.

UPDATE: CNN has not yet posted the transcript of last night’s segment.

Transcript:

BECK: I gotta tell you Michael, first of all, I don’t know if I would have cast Bill as Tony Soprano — a guy who’s a serial cheater. The second part is, I worried that we’ve made politics now just about entertainment. I mean, why don’t we just elect Kenny Chesney and get it all over with?

GRAHAM: I’m thinking Hillary Clinton sitting there as the Carmella — you know — of this thing.

BECK: That’s so true.

GRAHAM: With her — her large, overweight, powerful husband — and she’s using his power to get what she wants. At some point — but seriously, Glenn, didn’t you at one point want to see, like, Paulie Walnuts or someone come in and just whack them both right there. Wouldn’t that have been great?

BECK: No, I did not want to see that.

GRAHAM: C’mon. Where’s Big Pussy? C’mon, let’s make it happen.

BECK: No, I did not want to see that.

GRAHAM: I wanted that.
