Glenn Beck interviewed Rafael Cruz, father of GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz, on his television program last night, where he declared that the elder Cruz’s birth was “divine providence” because it resulted in his son Ted, who he says is now being raised up to save this nation.
“Everybody was born for a reason,” Beck told Cruz while the two were seated in a scale replica set of the Oval Office. “As I learned your story and saw the fruit of that story, now in your son, I am more and more convinced in the hand of divine providence.”
“Oh, absolutely,” replied Cruz.
Beck, of course, also believed that Mitt Romney’s 2012 presidential campaign was the result of “divine providence” as well, and we all know how that turned out.
