Commentator Glenn Beck had a bit of a meltdown after his Monday interview with Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz. Cruz threw his weight behind Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump in a surprise endorsement last week.
The Tea Party favorite and former presidential candidate appeared on Beck’s radio show to explain his about-face on the stand he took against Trump at the Republican National Convention.
“That was not what I expected,” Beck said, fidgeting and polishing his glasses as his crew sat around him in dejected silence.
“For the very first time,” he lamented, “I heard Ted Cruz calculate. When that happened, the whole thing fell apart for me.”
“But it’s my fault,” he said. “Its my fault for believing that men can be George Washington.”
He fretted that maybe he should have endorsed Marco Rubio, which would have been the politically expedient course, “Instead I said, ‘Let’s find a truly honorable man,’ and that will always let you down.”
“Right now, we have become PETA,” Beck said. “Shame on us! Why not just, if you won’t vote for Hillary or you won’t vote for Trump, why not just cover me in a bucket of blood? Why not just shame me in the public square? Why not run them out of business? They’re climate deniers!”
“There is no difference between the two teams anymore,” he huffed. “Which one is for the idea that all men are created equal? That all men have a right to pursue their happiness and make their own g*dd*amn decisions? Which one? Which one?”
“I contend it’s neither of them,” said Beck. “So let’s just soak each other in buckets of blood.”
By many reports, Beck’s once-ambitious media empire is beset by crises, economically failing and currently torn by multiple lawsuits. Beck’s former protege and business partner Christopher Balfe is suing Beck and his company Mercury Arts, alleging that Beck has driven the company “into the ground due to his own erratic behavior, excessive spending, and mismanagement.”

Trump calls for impeachment of Mitt Romney for criticizing him in rambling tweet
Hours after Donald Trump attacked Sen. Mitt Romney for being critical of his call for the Chinese to dig up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden, the president was back for another round, calling for the Utah Republiocan to be impeached.
Claiming without evidence that voters in Utah are turning on their senator, Trump claimed, "I’m hearing that the Great People of Utah are considering their vote for their Pompous Senator, Mitt Romney, to be a big mistake. I agree! He is a fool who is playing right into the hands of the Do Nothing Democrats!" followed by: #IMPEACHMITTROMNEY
