Glenn Beck spent most of today’s radio show calling upon Republicans to abandon Donald Trump in the wake of the announcement that the GOP presidential nominee has hired Breitbart’s Steve Bannon to serve as the campaign’s CEO.
Bannon is “possibly the most dangerous guy in all of American politics,” Beck said, declaring that Trump’s decision to hire him is giving Republicans who are backing the GOP nominee a perfect excuse for withdrawing their support.
“There is a hall pass for the next 48 hours for all Republicans,” he said. “Anybody who was on the bandwagon, Donald Trump has just given you the greatest gift and a warning: It’s going to get ugly and now is the time to jump ship. Now is the time to separate yourself and if you don’t, you are going to regret it.”
Trump is surrounding himself with ruthless “hatchet men” like Bannon, Roger Stone and Roger Ailes, who will destroy anyone who gets in their way, Beck warned.
“You are going see things in the next 82 days that will make you go, ‘You gotta be kidding me,'” Beck predicted. “I think it’s going to be a bloodbath. What is coming will be an absolute bloodbath because these guys do not take prisoners. If you are not with them, they will destroy you and if you deviate from their path at all, they will destroy you.”
