ANKENY, IOWA — According to a recent article by The Hill, libertarian talk radio host Glenn Beck, who recently endorsed Ted Cruz for President, stated that if it would come down to socialist Democrat Bernie Sanders versus capitalist Republican Donald Trump, he would support Sanders.
“Honesty, faith and truth are basic requirements. And quite honestly, I have to tell you, this probably isn’t going to go over very well; that’s why I like Bernie Sanders. Bernie Sanders is like, “Yep, I’m a socialist.” I can actually sit at a table with a man who says, “Yes, I’m a socialist, and yes, I don’t like what we are doing, we should be more like Denmark,” Beck stated on Saturday.
Beck went on to discuss the “valuable” ideologies of constitutionalism and socialism.
“What we really need in America is enough of these politicians who are telling us what we want to hear, hiding behind fancy language, and actually have a debate between a constitutionalist like Ted Cruz and a socialist like Bernie Sanders.”
On January 17, 2016, Beck falsely claimed that Trump sent out a tweet congratulating Obama for winning the election, and stated that he “always votes for winners.” Cowger Nation exposed the tweet as being fake, which was later admitted by Beck moments later.
