Skip to comments.Video- Beck on O’Reilly, scoffs and sneers at Donald Trump
Posted on 04/02/2011 6:11:47 AM PDT by wistful
Im really over Glenn Beck. He persistently promotes himself as someone who cares about the US Constitution, yet here he is on the OReilly show sneering and scoffing and trying to belittle Donald Trump (on the BC issue) with as much gusto as any leftist. How can he do this and then be sincere in his professed concerns for the application of Constitutional law?
Trump is in the right, hes brave, and we need to support him on this issue. If Beck cannot do that simple thing then hes off my Christmas card list. There is absolutely no reason why Obama can not be hit on his BC and policy simultaneously, and there is not one shred of proof for the claim that Karl Rove so often makes, that Obama is setting the BC issue up as a diversion.
In my judgment, the Democrats and their media collaborators betray again and again that their attempts to downplay this issue are fake and they are really, underneath their smug and arrogant veneer, as worried as hell.
As I watched the segment today, I found my respect for Beck slipping quickly away. I just do not like him anymore.

How much has Trump paid you to be his shill?
Rush usually gets it right 99% of the time. He now has an Obama BC song...Born in the USA.
The other Epic Ego struts. A classic cockfight.
“How much has Trump paid you to be his shill?”
Wow, that is a really offensive comment. I think the BC issue is important and I want the Berlin wall the media have built around the matter pulled down. I think Trump needs support for sticking his neck out the way he has. For you to allege I am taking money from Trump is just a cowardly and completely baseless smear unbecoming to this forum.
Agreed! Beck was saying the exact things about Trump that people say about him (clownish, extreme on issues, etc.). And he’s ANOTHER one that totally dismisses the BC issue.
But his words on O’Reilly yesterday were outrageous! It was like if HE isn’t the one bringing an issue to light, it’s not worth talking about. I think I’m “over” him, too!
If we applied the same standard to Beck he would not have much to say. Beck has not diminished much in my eyes because of this because I never held Beck in much esteem in the first place. In fact, he had become less and less to me as he gets more and more self-absorbed with himself.
We are still a long way out and Trump is doing a good thing by bringing up the birth certificate issue at this time.
I have started to wonder since all of the Republicans seem to be working just as hard to mock birthers... if they don’t want their own complacency in the sham to be highlighted.
Beck is a Libertarian and their god is Ron Paul. Isn’t that what most Libertarians do? Sneer at everyone but Paul?
How much has Obama paid you to be his?
I heard the exchange. I wouldn’t say that Beck scoffed or sneered; but he did question Trump’s braggadocio and the wisdom of saying some of the things that Trump has said. Which any sane person would do - remember this IS Donald Trump. He deserves a great deal of skepticism as a candidate, given a pretty spotty past.
BTW - I love some of the things that the Donald is saying right now, and I loved the birther issue brought up by Trump, but that doesn’t mean that Trump is an ethical, Constitution-following conservative presidential caliber candidate.
“Beck says at the end something like “I wish we could get candidates that are not provocative......” “
Yes, exactly, and he finishes off by saying he wants the truth when Beck himself is actually hiding the truth and attacking those who want it brought into the open.
Also he actually misrepresents what Trump said on the Muslim angle. If I remember correctly, Trump was only speculating on a possible reason and not stating it as likely or a fact, as Beck tried to imply.
It’s all about ratings and money with these idiots. I’m over Beck as well. Never watch his TV show anymore. I guarantee that these guys have a meeting together somewhere in the Fox offices and they say to each other something like “im not touching this birther issue because it will be the end of my career” that’s all these jerks care about is their shows and paychecks. Beck and O’reilly are frauds. And if birthers win the day, those idiots will have such egg on their face
I don’t get it either.
As detail oriented as Beck is about obama and his associations, why doesn’t he realize that this presidency could be null and void if this constitutional requirement was taken seriously.
I mean, it is about the survival of our Republic, which Beck portrays himself as being all about.
I do not understand people like this. It’s not enough for them to say (like Mark Steyn does) “I’m not a birther but they do have something to say, let’s talk about issues.” No, they have to sound exactly like the freaking Huffington Post.
Sir, I think Wistful is exactly correct that Trump should be defended by Freepers as he is only trying to get at the truth about our President’s eligibility. Why?..........then does this make Wistful a “shill” in your view?
One can only assume from your comment that you support Obama and his attorneys and his million dollar cover up effort? If so, you clearly are on the wrong forum........with all due respect..............
I am beginning to agree. Beck is losing himself in egoland and becoming increasingly ineffective.
It is beyond absurd that he does not apply his famously intense research team to bust wide open the Obama fraud.
In fact, I would say it’s conspicuously strange that he does not...he who tells us do not be afraid to ask questions.
Yet here he is on the front row, ridiculing honest inquiry by Trump.
He is really hurting the Beack brand with this nonsense.
Wake up Glenn.
At least treat Trump with due respect for asking the questions that staying on millions of minds.
“I love some of the things that the Donald is saying right now, and I loved the birther issue brought up by Trump, but that doesnt mean that Trump is an ethical, Constitution-following conservative presidential caliber candidate.”
Yes, that is fair criticism, but right now, I think we have to put that aside and support him, in order to persuade more real Conservatives to speak out on the BC issue as they should.
