The Blaze’s Glenn Beck isn’t just going after Donald Trump; he’s now going after people who support Donald Trump. In this case, Beck went after Sarah Palin. Beck called Palin a clown and said he doesn’t care about what she says anymore.
Beck probably wouldn’t have apologized if the backlash from Trump supporters and Sarah Palin’s base wasn’t so ruthless, but he did it nevertheless.
Seriously, Trump might be all the things Glenn Beck said of him, but that still leaves Trump miles ahead of the current GOPe leadership and the GOPe in general.
John Boehner and Mitch McConnell have done nothing but pass into law everything that Barack Obama and the Democrats desire. Seemingly many of the Republican voters are done playing that game and are moving elsewhere.
Beck posted it on both his Facebook page and his personal blog.
We all have bad days and bad moments.
Today was one of mine.
I stand by all of my comments on Sarah Palin EXCEPT when I called her a clown. It was unkind, childish and wrong of me to name call.
He went on to explain his frustration with Palin and further dumped on Trump.
What I should have said is this:
I don’t know what she really believes. I don’t think she is who I thought she was and haven’t for sometime.
When I saw her interview Donald Trump on her tv show I was stunned. Not that she interviewed him, but that she agreed with him and backs him.
I have seen her speak many times about many topics and I just don’t understand her. But I am sure she doesn’t agree or understand me often as well.
I haven’t had a relationship with Sarah since about the time of the shooting of Gabby Giffords. Nothing to do with that at all, but it was around that time that she withdrew from me and my team and it was because, as Todd told me on the phone, “we have been told who our real friends are.” I was stunned. I had backed her hard in every way I knew how. At that time I really believed in her and in fact I really believed she had the ability to change the world for the better.
While I have reached out since we have not spoken in an any meaningful way since.
Does this seem like jealousy to you? Is that why Beck went so hard and called her a clown? What are your thoughts?
