It wasn’t but a few short months ago. Pat Gray, one of Glenn Beck’s many sidekicks, was very excited. Ben Carson was ahead of Donald Trump in one poll in Iowa. Gray was ecstatic. Carson was then brought on for a full hour to field Beck’s litmus test. They prodded him to demean Trump, but he didn’t take the bait. Eventually they allowed Dr. Carson to leave. Carson passed their test with flying colors.
Today Ben Carson endorsed Donald Trump for president.
Things have to be rough over at the Dallas Compound. Beck and his crew of Kool Aid drinkers have hunkered down for Ted Cruz. And any potential increase in Cruz support was just snatched away by Donald Trump. These are dark days for the entire Blaze empire. Beck even received a visit from the secret service last week after he made a very easy to understand comment about potentially stabbing Donald Trump. Beck claimed he was talking about his cohort producer Stu Burguiere. Dana Loesch claimed the reports of the stabbing were “yellow journalism”. The lies and spin are no longer working. Beck’s morning zoo is now just a bunch of empty cages.
This endorsement has really got to rub those in the conservative establishment the wrong way. First Sarah Palin betrayed them. And now Carson. Add Joe Arpaio and Jerry Falwell, Jr and Phyllis Schafly and you could have your own CPAC without all of the Trump bashing. For Donald supporters this is so delicious.
The only thing for these neo-conservative radio morons to do now is band together with their cult of Trump deniers. They will continue to lose ratings and alienate potential new listeners. You know, all those people Trump is bringing into the fold. We wouldn’t want any fresh blood tuning in to hear their stale rants. Even Rush Limbaugh is going to have to re-think his Trump strategy if he wants to make money for his sponsors.
Glenn Beck used to have this line about his head exploding and that he needed some duct tape to prevent that. I say hide the duct tape. This is a man who deserves everything he is getting right now…and more.
