Bob Beckel Uses Racial Slur On Live Television

Posted: Updated:

Fox News host Bob Beckel used a racial slur in a rant about China on 'The Five' Thursday.

"The Chinese are the single biggest threat to the national security of the U.S.," he said. "They have been, they will be and they can wait, they're very patient. Do you know what we just did? As usual, we bring them over here and we teach a bunch of Chinamen -- er, Chinese people -- how to do computers and then they go back to China and hack into us."

The other 'Five' hosts gaped in disbelief.

"That is going to end up on 'The Soup,'" Andrea Tantaros said.

Sadly, this isn't the first time Beckel has made an offensive comment about Asian people.

Last year, he said that, after he went swimming, his "eyes blew up, and it made me look Oriental."

He's also used the term "crackers" to describe white people.

Classy!
