I usually like Glenn Beck, but he has gone off the deep end here by saying that he wants Bernie Sanders over Donald Trump.
This is insane. I would take ANY Republican candidate over ANY Democrat candidate. Donald Trump might be a bit rough, but this is no reason to say you’d support socialism.
I’m hoping that Glenn Beck calms down once the primaries are over and gets back on board with fixing our country.
Check it out:
Beck said Trump owed America an apology for supporting the Wall Street bailout during the financial crisis.
“It’s up to him to ask God’s forgiveness, but I would like to suggest to you that the man owes America an apology, and he should ask conservatives for America for forgiveness for supporting billions of dollars of bailouts, for pulling for the nationalization of our banks,” he said.
He said he even prefers Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), a self-proclaimed “democratic socialist” running in the Democratic presidential primary, to Trump.
“Honesty, faith and truth are basic requirements. And quite honestly, I have to tell you, this probably isn’t going to go over very well, that’s why I like Bernie Sanders,” he said. “Bernie Sanders is like, ‘Yep, I’m a socialist.’
“I can actually sit at a table with a man who says, ‘Yes, I’m a socialist, and yes, I don’t like what we are doing, we should be more like Denmark,’ ” he added.
“What we really need in America is enough of these politicians who are telling us what we want to hear, hiding behind fancy language, and actually have a debate between a constitutionalist like Ted Cruz and a socialist like Bernie Sanders.”
Cruz praised Beck as a “fearless and reliable conservative.”
“Glenn has been a relentless fighter for liberty, for limited government, and for restoring the country we all love so much,” he said in a statement released by his campaign after the endorsement.
“His powerful voice and passion played a critical role in my Senate victory and I am now proud to have him in our corner in 2016.”

Glenn might have meant this for show, but it is certainly a big mistake.
This will hurt his credibility in the future. I hope Glenn comes to his senses and realizes this is a foolish path to take.
