Glenn Beck Thinks Michelle Obama Will Run for President to Protect Barack from Being Prosecuted for ‘Obamagate’
Glenn Beck has done quite the reversal regarding his thoughts on President Donald Trump over the years, but it wasn’t all that long ago that he considered Trump “dangerously unhinged.”
That caused him to receive threats from Trump’s alt-right supporters, and at the time (November 7, 2016), Beck said the people threatening him “scare the hell out of me.”
And while he’d been critical of former President Barack Obama, accusing him of reversed racism, he later said he came to realize that “Obama made me a better man.” Beck, the CEO and founder and owner of Mercury Radio Arts, the parent company of his TV and radio network TheBlaze, also had plenty of praise for Michelle Obama, especially in regard to a speech she gave shortly after the news broke about Trump’s lewd remarks which were recorded on an Access Hollywood video.
“It doesn’t matter what party you belong to — Democrat, Republican, Independent — no woman deserves to be treated this way,” Obama said in her speech. And her speech definitely influenced Beck, who called it “the most effective political speech I have heard since Ronald Reagan.”
But Beck’s opinion about Trump has changed drastically in the overweening years. In March, he claimed on BlazeTV that Trump is one of the last male role models. And in a tweet by Right Wing Watch, Beck claims Michelle Obama will run for president to protect her husband from any “Obamagate” prosecution.
“I think there is a chance that if Obama is seriously in trouble, Michelle could step in and take that nomination and bring it across the finish line, because it would mean, you know, her husband’s reputation, it would mean, uh, everything that they really believed in and worked for, and it wouldn’t be so hard. I think there’s a better chance though, the more serious this investigation gets and the closer it gets to Obama, the more likely she is to step in.”
Maybe Trump is a role model for some men — the ones who hate women and people of color. That’s the only way I can think of him as being a role model, considering all of the truly heinous things he’s said. But I’ll leave it at that.
Here’s what Beck had to say in the video below, provided by Right Wing Watch.
