He’s stuck his foot in it this time. Seems that Becks vitriolic hate for Donald Trump has him in the crosshairs of the secret service. Someone forgot to tell him that it was a crime to threaten a POTUS candidate. My only question is, why didn’t Lindsey Graham get the same treatment after he mentioned killing Ted Cruz?
Here, CNN reports that Graham “joked” about killing Ted Cruz:
“If you killed Ted Cruz on the floor of the Senate, and the trial was in the Senate, nobody would convict you,” the former presidential candidate said at the Washington Press Club Foundation’s 72nd Congressional Dinner, referencing the Texas senator’s unpopular reputation on Capitol Hill.
CNN has reached out to Cruz’s presidential campaign for comment.
While Graham teased Democrats and other politicians in the room — at one point turning to House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and asking her not leave to leave for the sake of his own party — he focused his roast on the 2016 election and the GOP field, in which he formerly participated.
And now Glenn Beck is under investigation for threatening to stab, repeatedly, Donald Trump.
Conservative radio host Glenn Beck is under investigation after a comment he made on his radio show when talking about GOP front-runner Donald Trump. Beck says his comment was not directed towards the presidential candidate.
This appears to be a misunderstanding but the Secret Service tells CBS11 it’s aware of the comment and will conduct an appropriate follow-up investigation.
During his radio show Friday morning, Beck and his producers were talking about the other candidates saying they would support Donald Trump if he becomes the Republican nominee.
His producer mocked Beck after Beck mentioned being in the shoes of Trump’s rivals:
“Was it gigantic shoes?” asked the producer Stu Burguiere.
“If I was close enough and I had a knife. Really. I mean the stabbing just wouldn’t stop,” Beck responded, appearing to direct his comments at Burguiere.
Burguiere said on Facebook, “It was reported that Glenn had threatened to stab a presidential candidate this morning which was odd since I was on the show with him and didn’t notice anything like that… Of course, if you were listening, you know that Glenn actually threatened me, not Donald Trump, so I am in the odd situation of defending my boss for threatening my life.”
The reason the Secret Service said it’s doing a follow-up investigation is because they protect Trump.
Beck’s radio show is based out of Las Colinas and they did not respond to requests for comment Friday.
