Good career move? I don’t think so
O’REILLY TO JOIN GLENN BECK SHOW (?!)
I don’t think this is going to help O’Reilly’s credibility.
Once an admirer of Beck, his ‘transformation to a ‘television evangelist’, holier than thou, thee, them, and me was just way too much.
A rabid Trump-hater, Beck was an early supporter of Ted Cruz but became disenchanted (maybe because he was not as holy as Beck); he then went all in for Evan McMullen (WHO? Don’t scoff, Evan captured nearly .03% of the popular vote)!*
Beck reached the point where he was obvious in his hope for a Hillary win and he has not let up on Trump yet.
It is sad what Beck has become, and equally sad that Bill O’Reilly seems to think Beck is a “career lifeline”.
* For all you Evan McMullen fans out there, your guy tallied almost 3 hundreths of one percent of the 2016 presidential vote count and crushed candidate Darrel Castle (WHO ?) by 350,000 votes. Per Wikipedia:
“On Election Day, McMullin took the fifth-largest number of votes nationally with slightly over 700,000 votes. His biggest percentage total came in his home state of Utah, where he had 21% in a third-place finish. McMullin took more Utah votes than Gary Johnson, who also had his campaign headquarters in Utah. He finished over 350,000 votes ahead of the Constitution Party candidate Darrell Castle but over 800,000 less than 4th-place finisher Jill Stein.”
“We’re going to do that every Friday until Beck gets tired of me,” O’Reilly said Monday on his “No Spin News” podcast. “And it’s a good outlet for me to, you know, discuss things back and forth with Beck, who’s a good friend. We don’t agree on everything, but it’s very lively.”
Beck and O’Reilly are friends going back to their time together at Fox News, when they were the two biggest names on the network before Beck’s abrupt departure in 2011.
