Just when we thought Glenn Beck couldn’t get any wackier, he took his “cuckoo game” to another level.
During a March 4 monologue about Donald Trump’s Thursday night debate performance, he said that if he “had a knife, the stabbing [of Trump] wouldn’t stop.”
Here’s the unbelievable story from the Daily Caller:
“Beck began the segment by stating his amazement at how conservatives across the country aren’t up in arms over Trump’s debate behavior.
“‘I don’t know what I would have done if I was sitting in [Cruz or Rubio’s shoes]. I can’t say it that way. If I were on the stage, I would have said, “have you been listening to him tonight? Have you been listening to what I say about him? I believe these things.”‘
“At that point, Burguiere began to rib Beck for the ‘sitting in shoes’ analogy.
“Beck went on: ‘If I was close enough and had a knife, the stabbing just wouldn’t stop.'”
That’s right, political sports fans. Glenn Beck said on air that if he was on the debate stage with Donald Trump, he would stab him. Repeatedly.
Beck’s co-host, Stu Burguiere, told the Daily Caller Friday – after the article was published – that, despite the appearance of a threat against Trump, Beck was instead playfully threatening to murder his own co-host.
No matter how much you dislike someone, you should never talk about wanting to murder them – even if it was meant as a joke. This latest remark from Beck makes us wonder about his mental stability – never mind his credibility as a talk show host.
Based on this unusual remark, we believe that Beck sees his media empire crumbling. His ratings have declined over the past several months, and he sees Trump as another threat to his business. That’s our educated guess for Beck’s visceral reaction to Donald Trump.
What’s your take – do you think Beck is trying to protect his media empire…. is he going insane… or both?
