Yesterday, we shared the news that television and radio personality Glenn Beck had endorsed Ted Cruz for president. Needless to say, many of the comments we received about this news were not kind to Glenn Beck.
Well, here we go again.
The Gateway Pundit reports regarding the Cruz endorsement, Beck said he had never endorsed a presidential candidate in his 40 years of broadcasting, but he made an exception because of the urgency of the moment…
…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.
Gateway Pundit points out Glenn Beck had a similar opinion of John McCain in 2009, saying at the time he would have been WORSE for America than Barack Obama. Yep, that’s definitely another head-scratcher too. I know in years past, conservatives have often felt they were forced to vote for the lesser of two evils. But come ON! Bernie Sanders???
