In a recent interview with Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews asked the former secretary of state how she can “compete with a revolution?” — a question Glenn Beck says is “so damn ironic.”
“How do you beat a person who comes along in the primaries who says, ‘I’m going to give you everything you want: free tuition, more Social Security benefits, no increase in your taxes, free health-care from birth, all of it government-paid’?” the “Hardball” host inquired of Clinton’s strategy to beat fellow Democratic candidate Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.
“How do you compete with a revolution? A revolution of promises, really.”
Ultimately, Clinton seemed to avoid answering the question directly, telling Matthews, “We’ve got to get back to the big center and solving problems,” adding that she has a record of getting things done in Washington.
It wasn’t necessarily Clinton’s answer that Beck found so intriguing. Instead, it was the MSNBC anchor’s question that he said was ironic.
“The … question that is being asked here is so damn ironic,” Beck said on The Glenn Beck Radio Program. “That’s the question the right has been asking for the last 90 years. How do you possibly win when somebody says, ‘I’ll give you everything’?”
Clinton also told Matthews, in response to his question, that voters need to remember “what’s at stake” with this election: “We can’t let [Republicans] go back to trickle-down economics, repeal the Affordable Care Act. We can’t let them stack the Supreme Court for another generation.”
According to Beck, however, it is the U.S. Constitution and individual rights that are most at stake.
“Clearly, the Constitution of the United States is at stake. Will you truly have a First Amendment, a Second Amendment, a Fourth Amendment?” Beck asked. “Do you have those — the Tenth Amendment — at the end of the next presidential term? Those could be gone.”
