Glenn Beck Has an 'Honest Question' for Hannity, Limbaugh and Coulter: 'I Really Want to Understand

"This is not meant as an attack on them by any means."

Glenn Beck turned to his Facebook page early Friday to present a question to conservative mega-stars who are seemingly supporting Donald Trump's campaign for president.

"This is not an attack, this is an honest question," Beck stressed.

Beck said he understands that Trump "is reflective of what people are feeling" when it comes to issues like securing the border and negotiating with China.

"I understand and like the fact that he just says what he is thinking. No politically correct bs; no focus groups and he does it with out apologizing," he wrote.

Here's what Beck, however, doesn't understand.

"He is part of the problem when he by his own admission, buys politicians; he said he identifies his "policies more as a democrat"; he makes President Obama look truly humble; he was very pro abortion until very recently; he still says 'don't defund planned parenthood'; he is pro 'assault weapon ban'; he is in favor of a wealth tax that would just 'take money out of people's bank accounts'; he is for boots on the ground in Iraq and 'taking the oil' from the Iraqi people; he is a progressive 'republican'; he says single payer health care works; he said he would give people more than just Obama care; the First Lady would be the first to have posed nude in lesbian porno shots; he said that he keeps all the bibles he is given in a "special place" out side the city - and he only goes to church on Christmas and Easter; he is generally not a likable guy; he has around 16% favorability with Hispanics and he has gone bankrupt 4 times," he wrote.

Beck then asked, "Why are big name "conservatives" supporting him?" He listed Fox News host Sean Hannity, author Ann Coulter and radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh as examples.

"These are smart people. What am I missing?" Beck asked. "Just based on his favorability ratings he could never win in a general. Research shows that he may be near his ceiling now."

"Are they just trying to hold on to those disenfranchised republicans and keep them in the fold?" he speculated, adding that he thought that was a "good goal," but he doesn't think it is the reason for their support of Trump.

"I really do want him to be heard as I think it is important to discuss the things like the border. I wish he would bring up the fed and money printing. But I just don't understand those who claim conservative, small government values and principles saying he is their man. Am I misreading what they are saying?" Beck asked.

Beck asked for a "respective dialogue" on the issue, noting that he was "not trying to hear him down." In the Facebook comments, Beck engaged his fans, again reiterating that he is friends with Limbaugh, Hannity and Coulter.

"This is not meant as an attack on them by any means," he wrote. "I must be missing something because they are smart, clean, and love the same principles that I do."

Beck's Facebook post seemed to be prompted by a "Hannity" segment in which National Review reporter Charles Cooke pressed Hannity and Coulter on their support for Trump, saying he was "astonished" by how the conservative world has embraced the real estate tycoon.
