On Monday, Glenn Beck was positively giddy over his realization that everything he has done for the last decade has been orchestrated by God for the purpose of preparing his audience to save this nation by electing Ted Cruz as president.
God’s plan for saving America, Beck explained, hinged upon Donald Trump winning the Republican primaries in Florida and Ohio and thereby driving both Marco Rubio and John Kasich out of the race, setting up a showdown between Cruz and Trump, at which point “Cruz turbos and the republic is saved.”
Unfortunately for Beck, last night didn’t quite turn out the way he had anticipated, with Kasich winning in his native Ohio and vowing to stay in the race until the Republican convention. So while Beck heaped praised upon Rubio for dropping out after losing to Trump in Florida, saying that he delivered a “landmark” concession speech that will go down in history, he declared that Kasich will conversely go down in history as the man who “possibly destroyed the republic.”
After co-host Pat Gray mocked Kasich on the radio program today for being “delusional” for staying in the race when it is mathematically impossible for him to actually win enough delegates in the remaining primaries to secure the GOP nomination, Beck stated that “this guy is going to be remembered as a guy who possibly destroyed the republic.”
“It will be his arrogance,” Beck said, “he will go down in history as the guy who possibly destroyed the republic … We’re looking at a delusional guy.”
“Excuse my language,” Beck said later in the broadcast, “but you son of a bitch, the republic is at stake. This is not like a normal race. The republic is at stake!”
