Glenn Beck spent a segment of his radio broadcast today discussing the fact that he has rented his email list to Donald Trump, who has frequently attacked and taunted Beck, even though Beck has said that Trump, if elected, would be like Mussolini and throw Beck in jail:

Beck openly mocked Trump for being reduced to paying Beck to gain access to his audience now after repeatedly refusing Beck’s offers to appear on his radio or television program, saying that this is a sign that Trump realizes that he is getting his “ass kicked” in the presidential campaign.
“This guy has not reached out to our audience, ever,” Beck said. “Ever! He doesn’t think you matter … But this is a recognition that he needs this audience. This is a recognition of, ‘I’m getting my ass kicked and I have to go to Glenn frickin’ Beck and his audience because I need those ten million people to consider me.'”
“I think Donald Trump is dangerous,” Beck continued. “I think he is scary as hell … He’s not man enough or have the balls enough to come on [my show,] but I’ll take his money.”
“I’m sure Donald Trump didn’t expect this conversation to be happening,” he said. “I don’t think he was involved in this; his campaign did all of this. This should be recognized as Donald Trump is in so much trouble, he is now paying me to run ads in my email newsletters to reach out to an audience that he said he didn’t need, nor does he even want. That’s how much trouble they’re in! To me, that speaks volumes. Volumes.”
