Michael Cohen's plea deal won't likely lessen support for the president. Here's why.

On Wednesday's episode of “The Glenn Beck Radio Program,” Glenn, Stu Burguiere, and Pat Gray had a lively debate about how people on both sides will react to Michael Cohen's plea deal — especially his testimony regarding then-candidate Donald Trump's alleged hush payments to porn star Stormy Daniels "at the direction of a candidate for federal office."

"I understand why people feel this way ... and why they still are rallying toward Trump," Glenn said.

He said that people support President Trump's policies, many of which have been "fantastic," and not his personality. He added that "we already know" Trump's character, so no one is surprised to find out he's had affairs or lied about it. That's part of why many are willing to ignore his past and judge him only by what he's done since he's been in office.

Pat and Stu didn't seem convinced.

Glenn observed that we are not living in an age of reason, but a "post-modern era," pointing to anti-science, anti-capitalism, even anti-America movements.

"They're talking about bringing down capitalism, bringing down the Western way of life," he said.

"You have to see that people feel threatened," Glenn continued. "We feel as though our way of life, our way of making money, everything we understand all the way down to gender, is being taken and we're being forced to do things we don't believe in ... it's dangerous and destructive. And that's why they're looking for somebody who carries a big fist."
