Glenn Beck: Why Do Conservative Pundits Support Trump?

Glenn Beck: Why Do Conservative Pundits Support Trump?

Glenn Beck wants to stage a conservative intervention. The former Fox News host and prominent conservative commentator is confounded that so many Republican voters are attracted to Donald Trump. And Beck is particularly bewildered by the conservative pundits who are hooked on the bombastic real estate mogul. "Why are big name 'conservatives' supporting him?" Beck asked wrote in a Facebook post on Thursday. Beck went on to name names, calling out some of Trump's biggest boosters in conservative media: Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Michael Savage.

"I am not talking about the average Joe, I am talking about Sean Hannity or Ann Colter (sic). How about Savage or Rush?" Beck wrote. "These are smart people. What am I missing? Just based on his favorability ratings he could never win in a general. Research shows that he may be near his ceiling now."

Why do people support you Beck?

Handing out Teddy Bears at the border is not the immigration plan
most of us want.

THE NEXT PRESIDENT IS GOING TO HAVE TO FIGHT THE WHOLE FREAKING ESTABLISHMENT OR HE WILL BE PART OF THE WHOLE FREAKING ESTABLISHMENT!

Trump has the warrior spirit that can get the job done.

“We want the illegal alien inundation stopped.”

That says it for me too. If we do not win on this we might lose everything else.

He also does not need their money.

I was listening to Rush today (as many of you were, I’m sure). I don’t think he wants to tear down any Republican candidates, especially ones that are polling well. He said he was interested in defeating Democrats.

The same people that claim that Trump doesn’t have a chance to win as the Republican nominee and we need to disregard the current polls because they are meaningless also want us to believe the ones that say Trump will lose a year from now to Hillary..

If any other candidate opened up and expressed what conservatives want they would also experience a huge boost. Close the borders, deport all illegals, change birth right citizenship, no more Muslims, welcome educated Christians legally, reverse executive orders, tear ACA out by the roots, end ethanol support, end foreign aid to anyone not our GOOD friend, balance the budget, change the tax system, go back to don’t ask don’t tell, no women in combat, single sex units in the Navy.... I think with the above stated convincingly, the Progressives in both parties could be routed. End the EPA, dept of Education...a guy could go on forever.

I had forgotten about that. I seem to recall Glenn Beck giving out teddy bears to obese gang members at the border.

My opinion of Trump has dropped through the floor after watching his performance art tonight in NH.

Watch his rambling, incoherent "press conference" here and judge for yourself.

I'm beginning to question the guy's sanity. I can't see how he can survive significant exposure. He's a mess.

OTOH, I've heard that both Dems and Republicans are phoning in support of him on CSPAN. So, there's that.

“I am not talking about the regular Trump supporters. I am talking about the pundits, the smart people...”

Says the esteemed alumnus of Sehome High School.

"....Hannity, Coulter, Savage, Rush...these are smart people boosting Trump. What am I missing?"

They're smart, you're dumbo. That's what you're missing.
