Remember when Glenn Beck was one of the leaders of the Tea Party movement? He held a rally in Washington, D.C., with a truly staggering attendance. His media empire boasted more paid subscribers than Oprah, making him one of the most successful men in the world, not just America.
So what happened? Well, he pinned all his hopes on Ted Cruz, and when his favored candidate lost the nomination, Beck—never known for his even temperament—lost it. He famously mocked Trump by shoving his own face into a bowl of Cheetos, for example.
But now? Breitbart reports:
Beck, one of Trump’s harshest critics, described the president-elect’s victory speech on Tuesday night as “extraordinarily gracious and exactly the right tone.”
The radio talker was particular impressed when Trump said, “For those who have chosen not to support me in the past, of which there were a few people, I’m reaching out to you for your guidance and your help so that we can work together and unify our great country.”
“I am reaching out today. I will call him today,” Beck said in response. “Whether he takes my call — and I’m not saying he’s going to shun it. I mean, he’s now the president-elect. So he’s a little busy.”
A lot of Trump supporters would love to listen in on that call, should it take place.
Many may want the President-Elect to say something dismissive, something along the lines of, “You’re Fired!” and hang up. But as Beck himself points out, Trump has so far displayed none of his famously vengeful nature, at least in public. We’ll have to wait and see if President Trump will truly be every American’s president, including those who vocally opposed him, or if they will get “what they deserve.”
