Glenn Beck endorsed Senator Ted Cruz before the Iowa Caucuses and has been campaigning for the former Canadian for several weeks.
Radio host Glenn Beck told his audience this week that Ted Cruz was “anointed for this time.” He also apologized for previous comments that may have offended people’s sensibilities.
Beck lashed out at Christians who support Donald Trump last week in Utah saying, “No Christian, no real Christian – I don’t mean a judgmental Christian, I mean somebody who is living their faith – no real Christian says, ‘I want that guy, that guy is for me.’”
Chastened by negative public reaction to his recent comments that “real Christians” don’t support Donald Trump and “all throughout the South the Evangelicals are not listening to their God,” radio talk show host Glenn Beck is walking back his criticism of Christians who support the New York City billionaire and GOP frontrunner.
But now he’s claiming that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)97%
, whom he has endorsed for President, “was anointed for this time.”
On Friday, less than 24 hours after he proclaimed on his television program that “no real Christian says ‘I want that guy’” Donald Trump, Beck issued an apology in an article posted on his website.
“I’d like to apologize for any of the comments that I’ve made that offended anyone’s religious sensibilities or implied that I thought you weren’t good Christians,” Beck wrote in the article that appears to be an edited version from the transcript of his lengthy monologue on his radio program Friday.
“If that’s what I had said, but that’s not what I said,” he added as a qualifier to his apology.
Beck was eager to blame Breitbart News for his self-inflicted woes.
“That’s what Breitbart and Drudge and the paid-for Donald Trump media wants you to believe I said,” he continued…
…Earlier in the article, Beck said, “I happen to believe that Ted Cruz actually was anointed for this time.”
That isn’t what National Enquirer said.
