Glenn Beck blasted New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie as a “fat nightmare” during his appearance on CNN’s “Piers Morgan Live.”
“Chris Christie is a fat nightmare. He is a nightmare,” Beck declared to TheBlaze’s S.E. Cupp, guest-hosting for Morgan, in an interview set to air Friday.
Cupp said the Republican Christie is “almost certainly” going to run for president in 2016 and is currently beating Hillary Clinton in a theoretical match-up.
“Don’t care, don’t care, don’t care,” Beck said. “He’s not a conservative. He’s a progressive.”
He named Christie’s stances on global warming, unions and gun control.
“I’m done playing the game of, ‘Well, that means if we don’t vote for that guy, we’re gonna get this guy,’” Beck said. “We played that with John McCain. We played that with Mitt Romney.”
Asked who he would like to see run in 2016, Beck said he doesn’t know.
“I don’t trust any of them,” he said. “I’m not going to play the game of … I’m not going to sell my principles out anymore.”
Beck also scoffed at two of the big controversies of the week: “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson’s comments about homosexuality and whether Santa Claus is black or white.
“Santa Claus isn’t real. He’s a fictional character. I don’t know what color your imaginary friends are,” he said. “That’s the conversation we’re having? We’re talking about ‘Duck Dynasty.’ Do you know what happened last week in Russia? One of their biggest stars on television said that homosexuals should be put into the ovens, alive.”
Beck said he will “gladly stand with” gay rights organization GLAAD and “anybody who will say that’s crazy, that’s dangerous that’s hetero-fascism that’s what that is. And we’re talking about ‘Duck Dynasty,’ really?”
Beck and Cupp’s full hour-long discussion is set to air at 9 p.m. Friday on CNN.
