Glenn Beck’s Opinion of Donald Trump

Donald Trump has been getting a lot of airtime recently – mostly due to the fact that he seems to be a wild card that will say just about anything for the press coverage. And, I admit, I enjoy watching him because you just never know what will come out of his mouth next.  However, Glenn Beck- also no stranger to controversy- has his own opinion of The Donald.

Fox News host Glenn Beck said Friday night that Donald Trump has been making him “a little uncomfortable recently” with some of the wilder claims he’s made about President Barack Obama.

Beck, who himself has made some wild claims about Obama, was speaking on “The O’Reilly Factor” and critiquing the two-part interview Trump gave to the show earlier in the week, in which he declared that Obama “doesn’t have a birth certificate” and added he might not be showing one because it might say he’s a Muslim.

“There is something reasonable to, you know, a reasonable conversation if you don’t believe that he has a birth certificate.” Beck said. “You can say, ‘I don’t believe he has a birth certificate.’ But then he goes into ‘I do not believe he has a birth certificate’ and then he releases one that’s worse than Obama’s. And then he comes back and he says on your program, ‘He might be a Muslim too.’ I’m like, come on!”

When O’Reilly noted that Trump is “getting a massive amount of attention quickly” by espousing the “birther” claims and saying he would aggressively go after China as president, Beck argued there should be a push for “serious candidates who could shake things up by not saying provocative things.”

And he added the nation doesn’t need a “show boat.”
