Delta and Bank of America have yanked funding from a production of Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar” that is part of a Shakespeare in the Park series in New York. The play sparked controversy because the Caesar character was depicted as a blond businessman wearing a long tie, obviously emulating President Donald Trump.
On Monday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program,” Glenn Beck and the guys debated whether or not the play should have lost funding because it showed a Trump-esque Caesar get assassinated.
“I don’t like boycotts,” Glenn said. He explained that he was torn because he didn’t like the division created by boycotts, but he also wants higher standards than Kathy Griffin’s gory photoshoot with her holding a bloody, decapitated lookalike Trump head.
“We are learning that there is a line on criticism of conservatives or Republicans or whoever, which basically is limited at the decapitated head of the president,” Stu Burguiere pointed out.
No matter who is president at the time, people shouldn’t depict the president being killed, Glenn asserted.
