Glenn Beck slammed former Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson Friday for his endorsement of one-time GOP rival Donald Trump, describing the move as “really remarkable.”
“The guy called you a pedophile,” Beck said on The Glenn Beck Radio Program. “I mean, I can’t imagine somebody saying and inferring that I’m a pedophile and then going, ‘You know what, you know, a lot of things were said’ — no, not that, not that.”
Seeking to make his case against Carson’s endorsement, Beck, who is a top surrogate for GOP candidate Ted Cruz, referred to an interview that Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio gave to Mishpacha magazine, an orthodox Jewish publication.
In the interview, Rubio defended his harsh rhetoric against GOP rival Donald Trump by invoking is faith, saying, “Being faithful doesn’t mean you stand behind for what’s untrue and watch it pervade and watch it prevail.”
“I mean, we have a responsibility to tell not just the truth, but to confront what’s not true, to confront what’s bad,” Rubio continued. “And my faith teaches that as well. And I think — you know, clearly Donald Trump is the most vulgar person that’s ever run for president. He’s said some horrifying things about virtually everyone. I think he sets a terrible example for young people in this country and children.”
Beck agreed with Rubio and, drawing comparisons between Rubio and Carson’s faith, argued that Carson should listen to the Florida senator’s comments about Trump.
“What he said should be said right to Ben Carson’s face,” Beck said. “You have a responsibility to stand up against evil.”
