It’s time for Glenn Beck to fade into the sunset
Glenn Beck was giving an election night stump speech for Ted Cruz. He has a pretty decent size audience and everything is going well as the audience politely listens to him. Suddenly, like the crackle of electricity, people start whispering “Donald Trump just walked in” and in a moment it’s all over for Beck.
Beck endorsed Cruz before the Iowa caucus last month and has been traveling and campaigning with the Texas senator ever since. At a press conference in South Carolina this week, Beck speculated as to whether his presence on the campaign trail “helps Ted Cruz or not,” saying that he didn’t know, but felt compelled to “do everything I can” to help Cruz.
There was a day, before “the crazy” arrived, that Glenn Beck was exciting to listen to and had something to say. He had a massive audience and was able to influence the thinking of millions of patriotic Americans. Last night, all it took was for Donald Trump to physically enter the same space where Beck was standing and every ounce of the oxygen there was immediately sucked out as Beck’s listeners all abandoned him like it had been prearranged.
In the video, you can actually seeing them running away from Beck and towards Trump. When the voting was all done and counted, they ran away from Ted Cruz as well. For Donald Trump, it was a masterclass in leadership and a complete domination of the evening’s events.
Good night, Glenn….
