Glenn Beck gave Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton a compliment Thursday evening — sort of.
After analyzing Clinton, Democratic hopeful Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and Republican candidate Donald Trump, Beck concluded that — among those three — the former secretary of state is the country's "best bet."
"Honestly, between the three, the woman who should be in prison is probably the best," Beck told his live studio audience during Thursday's episode of The Glenn Beck Program.
Beck says he came to that conclusion because he believes Clinton, even though he holds that she should be in prison, is the only one of those three candidates who will maintain the status quo in Washington, D.C., claiming the other two would "retool" the Constitution and government.
"She's the one that's the slimiest to keep the whole thing together. Bernie Sanders wants to retool [government] and Donald Trump, I think, has fascistic tendencies and will retool it," the popular commentator, who has endorsed Texas Sen. Ted Cruz for the GOP nomination, said.
"That's how much trouble we're in," he added.
It is important to note, however, that throughout the program, Beck made it clear he would never vote for Clinton in a general election.
