Radio host Glenn Beck reacts to the news that Breitbart executive Stephen K. Bannon has been hired by Donald Trump to be his campaign's chief executive. Beck says that Bannon is, "a horrible despicable human being," -- "quite possibly the most dangerous guy in all of American politics."
"So look at this lineup," Beck said about the Trump campaign: "You now have Roger Stone, who was in the Nixon White House, Roger Ailes who was in the Nixon White House, and Steve Bannon, who is one of the worst people."
Glenn Beck predicted in February that Bannon "wanted to be Donald Trump's Goebbels."
"Doing what you've done to Breitbart --and anybody who reads Breitbart knows exactly what’s going on-- If that is what your idea of being Roger Ailes is, you are so sadly mistaken," Beck said then. "That doesn’t make you Roger Ailes. That makes you Goebbels."
GLENN BECK: The CEO of Breitbart is Stephen K. Bannon... I always confuse him with Bruce Bannon, who is the Incredible Hulk... The Hulk is Steve Bannon without the accident, he is just always the Hulk... He is quite possibly the most dangerous guy in all of American politics.
He makes Roger Stone look like Mary Poppins. So look at this lineup: You now have Roger Stone, who was in the Nixon White House, Roger Ailes who was in the Nixon White House, and Steve Bannon, who is one of the worst people.
He has become the CEO of the Trump campaign. And he is not leaving Breitbart!
... His duties may be reduced. This is the most lateral career move in history. He went from running the Trump campaign to running the Trump campaign.
It is crazy... Ask some people who work at Breitbart, he is a horrible despicable human being.
BECK IN FEBRUARY: Ask Dana Loesch about this Bannon guy. He is running Breitbart, and Andrew Breitbart would be spinning in his grave right now. I'm telling you that I beleive that Bannon thinks he is either going to be the chief of staff, or he is going to be the next Roger Ailes.
Roger Ailes didn't answer to anybody, and he certainly didn't take orders from a real estate developer. He certainly didn't take orders from a guy who builds golf courses. That is a little beneath Roger Ailes. By taking orders from a political candidate, and reworking your entire site to promote the lies of a specific candidate without any kind of truth behind these things.
Doing what you've done to Breitbart and anybody who reads Breitbart knows exactly what’s going on. If that is what your idea of being Roger Ailes is, you are so sadly mistaken. That doesn’t make you Roger Ailes. That makes you Goebbels.
CO-HOST: I ran across this article from RealClearPolitics, the headline says: Glenn Beck Says Breitbart's Stephen K. Bannon Wants To Be Donald Trump's Goebbels. Now the headline is obviously incendiary, but when you read the story, it is exactly what happened...
GLENN BECK: You couldn't have planned the destruction of the right any better.
