'He looks like hell': Donald Trump unloads on Glenn Beck after being accused of voting for Obama

    I used to listen to Glenn, until he went on a personal vendetta against Trump. I wonder if his radio show's listenership is at its lowest. Glenn is becoming kind of irrelevant, if you ask me.

    Quoting Trump:

    "This really dopey guy ... this dopey guy, Glenn Beck, he looks like hell. No, he's like a dope. And I've watched him cry on television all the time. He's doing very badly. His thing is falling apart. His company is falling apart..."

    Beck fell off the face of the planet when he left Fox News. Probably just trying to drum up some ratings in desperation. Trump seems to do better in the polls when people attack him; it has been interesting to watch.

    On his FB page Glenn is now apologizing to Donald Trump for accusing him for something Trump didn't do. Glenn found a fake tweet and ran with it like it was a revelation from God or something. This is a disgrace to Glenn and his show. It's turning into a total quackery. Not to say it has not been, but this is becoming hard to comprehend. The extent of his hate for Trump has no limits. And it's all because Trump said I don't want to appear on your irrelevant show.

    I am a ABH voter (Anyone But Hillary) and really only care about electing the best Republican candidate who will keep her and her husband's sleaze machine out of the Oval Office. The country, so far, has withstood 7 years of a hater of America in the Oval Office, but I do not know if we (or the world) can take an additional 4-8 years of the Clinton's greed and slime directly after the tragedy that has been Obama.

    To date, Trump has been the only Republican candidate that is showing an ability to counteract and turn the tables on the liberal media propaganda machine and the Billary sleaze machine, both of which are coordinated with as vicious and corrupt strategies as has ever been seen in U.S. politics. Trump is by no means a perfect candidate for my taste, but if he is the best chance to beat the vile, core group of people that are part of getting Billary in office (union thugs, mafia lawyers, climate charlatans, other assorted government control freaks, etc.) , I say go, man, go. The early primaries will show a lot, in this regard.

    Beck will quickly go back to obscurity. He hit his peak while on Fox news and it is only downhill from here, I suspect.

    And, for the rest of the world, the only sane candidate you might get, is Sanders...

    Really? Oh, wait, the rest of the world is knee-deep in socialism and political correctness. Great. That's precisely what the US doesn't need.

    @PoPSiCLe Speaking of political correctness, this is what's going on in Sweden now:

    Swedish Police Instructed to Withhold From Public Suspects’ Skin Color and Ethnicity to Avoid Being Labeled Racist

    I am sure it's coming to Norway too, sooner or later. That political correctness and the fear of being labeled racist is what's going to destroy Europe.

    I can't imagine our police here not being allowed to tell if the suspect was white or black, Asian or Hispanic, etc. If it ever comes to a point where that attitude is enforced on a federal level on our police (and on our citizens) we'll be over, too.

    Margaret Thatcher said it best:

    "The trouble with socialism is that, eventually, you run out of other people's money."

    That is why the "great experiments" with socialism in the Soviet Union (Bernie Sanders' hallowed ground) and China failed so miserably and they went to a form of capitalism to feed their populations and have a place in the world. This is also why the European Union has never achieved the grandiose expectations that it had when first formed. Socialism is a clear path to mediocrity and misery...Greece being just the latest example of what happens when a country's citizens expect others to pay for their lifestyles.

    No Alcohol, drugs, lack of family values, lack of work ethics, lack of education and negative population growth will do it..lol

    They printed trillions of dollars in the US to stave off the great depression, wasn't really peoples money. Printing press and some Ink. If 1 percent have 90 percent of the wealth than you know where peoples money is going. I am for uncorrupted capitalism where big corporations don't have the monopoly and control of peoples lives.

    Corruption, unfortunately, exists everywhere. The way I see it is the most corrupted capitalism is still economically more sound and politically more stable than a perfect socialist system with its centralized government and re-distribution of wealth. Since capitalism is all about private ownership and fair competition it's less likely to be open to blatant corruption. And the system of checks and balances (which is predominantly capitalist in nature) still works on the government level too. But that is not to say that corruption doesn't exist in the good ol' USA. Of course it does.

    The REAL monopoly and control over people's lives lie in the government and that is why it can become so evil with the wrong people and philosophies. Apple is one of the largest companies in the world and has as much smartphone marketshare as any other vendor right now; can anyone tell me how it controls my life since I do not use their products? On the other hand, if their products were in the control of a government bureaucrat, I might be forced to buy and use it, just like Obama is trying to do with our healthcare by socializing it. It is a mistake to confuse large private entities with a large government with all kinds of power to control things. Yes, some corporations try to use their money to influence government and get their way with business issues, but it is the government that is at fault for allowing this to happen and wielding its power unfairly.

    Lol. It's always funny watching americans talking about "socialism" like it's working today the same way they tried running the USSR and/or China. Socialism != communism. There are plenty of ways you can have a working, democratic society and still take care of your own people. I live in Norway - granted, we are in a bit of a bind right now, due to very low oil-prices, but we'll pull through, regardless. It's still one of the most peaceful countries in the world: most of the policemen wounded in the line of duty last year got those wounds due to misfires (they're clumsy idiots who shouldn't carry guns, but that's another debate).

    Americans: you wanna stop bleeding money everywhere? Stop your idiotic wars, stop spending several third world countries' BNP every year on military might, and start paying your workers a decent salary. A person walking as a waitress, or sitting a register at Walmart should be able to live of the wages. Not having to work another job just to make ends meet. And that is saying a lot, giving the fact that your cost of living is actually not that high, as long as you stay out of mid-town <insert big city>.

    Oh, yeah - and start paying your foreign debt. How many billion dollars are you in debt now? Still refusing to pay, I guess. Personally, I really, REALLY hope Trump doesn't win the election. You guys really don't need that jackass with shit for brains to run a country.

    Apple controls your life as they purchase all the corporations that could bring competition and get proper competition in the market. Walmart decimated all the mom and pop stores by predatory pricing and after they annihilate the competition they charge whatever they please. Top 65 people have more money than 3.5 billion bottom. That doesn't seem right. Same with Monsanto, Dow chemical, Cargill and the banks. There isn't any real competition. Having a handful suppliers for phones and a few carriers is not true competition. Why should it cost a billion dollar for a presidential campaign, you think an independent honest politician can raise a billion dollars. Politicians have to support people who fund their campaigns.

    I think the media is driving the agenda and Trump hasn't got a hope in hell. I trust Americans won't be that stupid.

    Cold War has been over for a long time and socialism in Western Europe has been going on for a long time. Results seem to be the same: mediocrity, for the most part.

    The beginning of our debt was to finance WWII and grew and grew during the Cold War. There were no complaints from Europe when the need was there and we were covering most of what should have been its financial burden. It turns out that now U.S. military spending is down about as low as it has been in decades. The reason that we are in debt (and note that it is the government that is in debt, not the eeevil corporations or the citizenry - most of us manage to live within our means.) is the government trying to meet the every-growing needs of the "takers" because when it can no longer squeeze more out of the "makers" in the country look outside for debt financing. So, it is primarily for entitlement programs not for military expenses that we have such huge debts. And, by the way, I am not so bothered by the debt. It has been proven time and again that we can grow our economy to make the debt less and less onerous on a percentage basis. We just have to not have an idiot socialist in the Oval Office.


    LOL...the 1950's are calling and want their business theories back. :) Walmart is closing hundreds of stores (might be a thousand or more) right now in the U.S. Online sales are killing them. U.S. Steel, General Motors, IBM, <insert any big old monopoly name here> generally do not last because if they charge whatever they please, or get lazy, or arrogant, or whatever, it opens the door for competition which, unless regulated by a command and control economy (e.g., socialism,) will spring up wherever there is an opening. Always happens and always will. Its human nature.

    So, you must like Trump then, because he is supporting his own campaign with his own money and has no big donors to worry about?

    One thing about capitalism: there will always be winners and losers; it is the nature of the system. Right now, down the street from my house a new gas station sprung up alongside an existing one. They are having a gas price war that is saving me a significant cost per gallon over other nearby gas stations which have not joined in. My point is that it only took two competitors (not even a handful) to show capitalism in action. Yes, the price war is likely temporary, but so isn't everything in business, including monopolies.

    The liberal, lamestream media both in the U.S. and around the world are trying to push their agenda which is electing the Clinton sleaze and corruption machine. Nothing new there. Look at the absolute dishonesty they engaged in to pull Obama over the finish line in 2012. If you just listen to the liberal media you would not understand that ANY of the Republican candidates are head and shoulders above Billary and their thug pals.

    Oh, com'on. Nobody says that. If you read my post you could clearly see I am not comparing your socialistic system to the one I grew up under in the former USSR. What I am saying is socialism is all about "centralized government and re-distribution of wealth". Yes, your roads are great and so are your living conditions, but you guys are overtaxed and a vast layer of your population lives on benefits. Some economists refer to Sweden as a "welfare state". I don't think Norway is that far away from that comparison.

    Sweden and Norway are in a pile of trouble. They are both overrun by up to no good immigrants. Particularly Sweden. You guys need to wake up or it will be so wide-spread, it'll be too late to do anything about it. Then you'll have to come to these beautiful United States where Trump will be presiding as the ultimate king. And you'll feel ever so safe here. :)

    Yeah people without ability to think for themselves are the reason that most of the wealth ends up with one percent of the population. Are you telling me that mom and pop stores are going to thrive, Cargill wont control our foods, Coke wont dump 100 spoons of sugar in the big gulp..lol. The biggest fraud ever resulting in most people loosing their savings wasn't in 1950s. How much money did Pension funds lose because of banking and investment frauds. Was it 50s where tax payesr bailed all the major corps out...

    You are missing the point. The banking crisis was caused by the government not only setting up the crisis by insisting that banks give out loans to the "takers" who had not chance of paying them back (yet another grand adventure in socialism) and then jumped in to take money from the "makers" to bail out the banks from this nonsense.

    Online "mom and pops" are thriving and disrupting the big "monopolies" and it is no different with food and drink. There are so many choices these days for all such products that no single eeeevil corporation can control anything. By the way, the reason that Coke puts in so much sugar is because their customers prefer it that way. Simple supply and demand. It is the control freaks who want to tell people what to eat, how to live, etc., simply for the sake of controlling others (not for the others' benefit, just for the thrill of control) that always rant about "unseen hands" feeding us bad food, screwing up the climate, etc. A bunch of total crap that only LIV's (Low Information Voters) buy into like sheep.

    LoL. Its always funny watching people from a small, filthy rich petro-state that is ethnically homogeneous (95% white,90% non-immigrant), and a population smaller than the Los Angeles metro-area, try and hand out advice to Americans about how to succeed.

    It would be pure comedy to see your country open it's borders as America has for centuries, and share its oil wealth. Your economy, and likely your government, would collapse within five years. The inherent racism in your culture would be on full display for all, much like it is in Sweden right now as they deal with their Somali immigrants.

    Whats next, will Qatar be handing the US advice on how to run things?
