You really do have to wonder about political reporting. This is a brief story on Glenn Beck’s reaction to Donald Trump:
Conservative radio host Glenn Beck called Donald Trump a “son of a bitch,” and panned his performance in Thursday night’s GOP presidential debate.
On his Friday broadcast, Beck argued that the GOP front-runner was a “big loser” in the first showdown between Republican candidates.
He is the most arrogant candidate next to the candidate called Barack Obama,” he said. “I mean, there’s nobody I’ve seen more arrogant than him.
“This guy will be Barack Obama times 10 with enemy lists,” Beck added of Trump’s unpopularity with other Republicans. “[He is] really dangerous.”
Beck admitted that Trump’s inclusion produced entertaining political theater, calling it the “best presidential debate” he has ever seen.
“I could watch this as sports [if] my country wasn’t dying,” Beck quipped.
Trump instantly drew boos on Thursday evening by refusing to rule out a 2016 Oval Office bid as an independent.
My guess is that Glenn wasn’t being lighthearted.
