Glenn Beck Considers Cruz Scandal Allegations: No Way A Guy "This Buttoned Up" Could Be So Stupid


On his Monday radio program, ultimate Cruz backer Glenn Beck outlined the biggest reasons why he doesn't believe the allegations about Sen. Ted Cruz from the National Enquirer.

But, he also said if the allegations are true, he will drop Cruz "like a hot potato."

"First it is Ted Cruz," Beck laughed. "He doesn't have enough game. We're not talking Tom Cruise. It's Ted Cruz, have you watched him?"

"He's like that in real life, what you see in the debate is how he always is."

GLENN BECK: [The National Enqurer] said something about Cruz's "Latin blood" or something like that. First of all,t hat's a horrible stereotype to make, and second of all, I have not seen it.

STU: We're men, so maybe the chemistry isn't there between us and Sen. Cruz...

BECK: I talked to Ted this weekend, and I talked to others that know him very... well. I've got five reasons, who's got more, you tell me if you disagree with anything here.

I will drop him like a hot potato if these accusations were true...

Character matters... It's one thing if for instance, he came out and said: 'look, six years ago... Heidi and I were on the rocks, yes I cheated... and we dealt with that...'

Okay, I'll give you a break if it is over and you guys dealt with it, that's your business. I'm not here to condemn somebody for making a mistake. But if you're a serial guy, like five of them during this campaign, that's insane, a totally different person than we think Ted Cruz is...

Here are the things that I came up with...

First is Ted Cruz. He doesn't have enough game. We're not talking Tom Cruise. It's Ted Cruz, have you watched him?

He's like that in real life, what you see in the debate is how he always is...

He's exactly the same. So A, the game. I just don't see it...

PAT: Maybe during the campaign, you could theoretically see how people are like--

GLENN BECK: Okay, I don't believe it.

So, number one, no game. Two: I have spent a lot of time with him on the campaign trail. My wife has too. Women especially, and how many times has he been here in the makeup chair with the makeup ladies... That's where all the dirt comes from, they always have radar because they are always sitting there. I've never seen it, my wife has never seen it, women..

If you are going to be a sexual predator --and that's what you would have to be for five women in four years-- a sexual predator. You would see signs of it.

You would hear people say: Oh man, I get a funny feeling from him, you know he said something werid to so-and-so, right?

We've had that happen... There's never been anything said about [Cruz].

Third, This guy is driven... Ted has known that he could be the president from the beginning.

STU: Preparing for this for his whole life.

BECK: I think so. You are not as driven as he as, you are not as smart as he is, and then go in for your last four years before you're going to run for president, you don't get to 2012 and say you want to run for president, and think you can get away with it. All recently...

There's absolutely no way this guy, so buttoned up, knowing that he could be president of the U.S. is that stupid...
