Glenn Beck took a swipe at Herman Cain in an email to his supporters. “Dating 101: Glenn tells Cain how to handle the ladies” reads the subject line.
“Are people just trying to gain their 15 minutes of fame, or is Herman Cain as prolific a scorer as Wilt Chamberlain?” Beck asks.
The conservative commentator questions the type of workplace behavior that could lead to the accusations, implicitly arguing that it’s Cain’s own workplace etiquette that made the current situation possible.
“I’d be a fool as a CEO or a head of a company to have dinner with a good friend who is also an employee. I’d be foolish to do that,“ Beck wrote. “There’s just no reason to put yourself in that situation.”
Later on his show, Beck concluded that men will just always be men.
“Women and men do not think the same way,” he said. “I’ve been trying to tell my daughters, who will tell me, ‘Dad, he’s just a friend.’ Is he? He’s 17 years old and he’s just a friend? Really? If he’s gay, I buy it. If he’s not, no, he’s not. No, he’s not. He wants sex. Period. Women and men think differently.”
