The tentative San Francisco nudity ban
- tentative because the ban may yet be squashed in a second round of voting next month - was met with harsh words from a Fox news host Tuesday, who claimed the nudists campaigning to bare all were probably "gang banged" early in life.
As the SFist notes
, host Bob Beckel's remarks have yet to show up on the web transcript for the program "The Five." It's as if it never happened, as far as Fox is concerned. But a YouTube user managed to capture
Beckel's verbal dexterity in real-time, the results of which can be seen below. (Note the pained expression on the face of female co-host Dana Perino.)
The awkward moment saw Beckel attempt to play down his choice of words. "I didn't use any crude language," uttered Beckel. "I don't know, they could have had sexual assault on them."
