Sen. Mike Lee called into Glenn Beck’s radio program today, where Beck raised the prospect of Lee finding himself with an appointment to the Supreme Court should Sen. Ted Cruz become president, which Lee said is something for which he would be “highly flattered” and “very grateful.”
When Beck raised the possibility of Lee being nominated to the Supreme Court, the Utah Republican responded that obviously any “law geek” in America would be flattered by such an offer and he would be no exception, saying that if such a scenario comes about, “we’ll see what happens.”
Beck and cohost Pat Gray were positively giddy about the prospect of putting Lee on the court for the next 50 years because it would drive the left insane, while Lee admitted that he would certainly “not be their first choice.”
Beck responded that he has had personal conversations with Cruz about the need to confirm people like Lee to the Supreme Court and Cruz has promised Beck that he has the “guts” to try and do exactly that.
“I believe him,” Beck said of Cruz’s pledge before telling Lee that “I’m hoping to see you in robes some day.”
