Following a series of controversies involving Heidi Cruz, the wife of 2016 candidate Ted Cruz, ex-Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields and a suggestion that women who have abortions should be punished, Glenn Beck believes Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump may have hit his "high-water mark."

During his program Thursday night, Beck — a top Cruz surrogate — said he thinks Trump "might be the first man ever to reach 100 percent" disapproval among women, referencing a CNN study that found the billionaire candidate currently has a 73 percent disapproval rating with females.

"It's going to fall apart on him because you can attack a lot of things — you can attack the border, you can attack Mexico — but when you start going after people, and they start to see, 'Wait a minute, that could be my mom, that could be my wife, that could be my daughter' — it's over," Beck said on The Glenn Beck Program.

The conservative host when on to compare the current situation to Martin Luther King, Jr. and the civil rights movement: "When America has evil and good in front of them, it took us a while in the 1960s to see it, but once they had the dogs and the firehoses, it was over."

According to Beck, Trump's apparent problem with women is his "dogs and firehoses" moment.

"People didn't see it for a while," Beck remarked, "but once they introduced the dogs and the firehoses, it was over. The dogs and firehoses moment, if it's not this, it will come."

"I think it's women, myself," he concluded.
