Bob Beckel calls Andi Dorfman a slut

Bachelorette Andi Dorfman Is A ‘Slut,’ Fox News Host Claims

Fox News host Bob Beckel declared on live TV that The Bachelorette star Andi Dorfman is a “slut.”

Beckel made this pronouncement on the highly rated political and pop culture roundtable The Five, which airs on FNC at 5 pm on weekdays.

The panel was discussing Andi’s alleged sexual encounter with runner-up Nick Viall in the so-called fantasy suite, a factoid which emerged during the After the Final Rose broadcast. After several panelists weighed in on this revelation, Beckel abruptly shouted “she’s a slut!” While the other panelists seemed disgusted and/or perhaps uncomfortably amused by yet another of Beckel’s rants, co-host Andrea Tantaros immediately put Beckel in his place (see embed below).

A liberal Democrat and an Obama cheerleader/apologist, Bob Beckel has previously gotten himself in trouble for both uttering racial slurs and swearing on the air during The Five telecasts. A former official at the U.S. State Department in the Carter administration, Beckel’s main claim to fame is managing Walter Mondale’s presidential campaign to a 49-state loss to Ronald Reagan. Regular viewers of The Five have also noticed that Beckel, apparently playing the role as the show’s resident curmudgeon, often seems to come to the set wholly unprepared for each episode’s discussions and tends to engage in incoherent ramblings to perhaps compensate.

He also recently claimed to have smoked dope at the White House.

As The Inquisitr has previously reported, the Monday night finale of The Bachelorette — in which Andi Dorfman chose ex-pro baseball player Josh Murray as the victorious recipient of the final rose — was the lowest rated final episode in the franchise’s history. This season’s Bachelorette installment has been tracking lower ratings all summer, down about 23 percent in the coveted 18-49-year old demographic, and down 11 percent in total viewers from previous seasons. The Bachelorette will return next summer on ABC, however.

Do you think that Bob Beckel’s assessment of Bachelorette Andi Dorfman is unfair and/or offensive?
