Glenn Beck appeared on Dana Loesch’s program, which airs on his TheBlaze television network, last night to discuss his outrage and disappointment in Ted Cruz for endorsing Donald Trump. He speculated that “the smarmiest of the smarmy” within the Texas GOP had threatened to destroy Cruz’s political career and derail his bid for re-election in 2016 if he didn’t endorse Trump, which caused Cruz to cave because he lost faith in divine providence.
“I think he had a moment of doubt, not of the people, of the protection of divine providence,” Beck theorized.
Beck said that if he lost his entire company and wound up in jail, he would trust that divine providence would ensure that he still had a voice because even “Nelson Mandela had a voice because he was in jail.”
“If you really know your principles and you say, ‘I believe in the protection of divine providence, whatever is supposed to happen and get His message out, He will get it out,'” Beck said, “I believe in that. What Ted did was, I think, is what all of them do, ‘I’ve got to be there so I’ve to to triangulate, this will work and this won’t work and I don’t see a way of that working.'”
“Well, I don’t see a way that any of this works. I believe that will work,” Beck said, pointing to heaven.
