Former Fox News host Glenn Beck has been pushing back against Republican nominee Donald Trump since early in the GOP primary. After endorsing Texas Senator Ted Cruz early on, Beck repeatedly trashed Trump, calling him “unstable” and “immoral.”
And while prominent Trump supporters like Fox News host Sean Hannity had already attacked Beck for “enabling Hillary,” Beck’s latest comments are drawing even more criticism.
Rumors started flying about whom Beck might be “endorsing” after he posted the following on his Facebook page in defense of Utah Senator Mike Lee and others who disavowed Trump after hearing the lewd comments in Friday’s leaked tape:
The post reads:
“Every person, each of us must decide what is a bridge too far.
Mike Lee has obviously reached that point, where the moral compromise his party is asking him to make is simply beyond what is acceptable.
It is not acceptable to ask a moral, dignified man to cast his vote to help elect an immoral man who is absent decency or dignity.
If the consequence of standing against Trump and for principles is indeed the election of Hillary Clinton, so be it. At least it is a moral, ethical choice.
If she is elected, the world does not end…. Once elected, Hillary can be fought. Her tactics are blatant and juvenile, and battling her by means of political and procedural maneuvering or through the media, through public marches and online articles, all of that will be moral, worthy of man of principal.
Her nominees can be blocked, her proposed laws voted down.
The alternative does not offer a moral person the same opportunity. If one helps to elect an immoral man to the highest office, then one is merely validating his immorality, lewdness, and depravity.
But it’s OK, at least it is not her! Right??
Lee’s call for Trump to step down and withdraw from the race is respectful to him and to the process.
Trump stepping down does not guarantee a Clinton win, but it does guarantee that the Republican party still stands for something, still allows its members to maintain thier own self respect and that it still has a future.”
