SiriusXM Suspends Glenn Beck After Guest Makes Comments About Trump

SiriusXM announced Tuesday that “The Glenn Beck Program” will be suspended from the Patriot Channel “for the coming week,” and that the company is “evaluating its place in our lineup going forward.”

“SiriusXM encourages a diversity of discourse and opinion on our talk programs,” the company said in a statement. “However, comments recently made by a guest on the independently produced Glenn Beck Program, in our judgment, may be reasonably construed by some to have been advocating harm against an individual currently running for office, which we cannot and will not condone.”

Those comments came during an interview Beck conducted last week with the fiction author and conservative commentator Brad Thor. Discussing a potential Donald Trump presidency, Thor lamented that impeachment would likely be off the table.

“If Congress won’t remove him from office, what patriot will step up and do that if, if, he oversteps his mandate as president, his constitutional-granted authority, I should say, as president,” Thor said. “If he oversteps that, how do we get him out of office? And I don’t think there is a legal means available. I think it will be a terrible, terrible position the American people will be in to get Trump out of office because you won’t be able to do it through Congress.”

1. Did he seem to be advocating a 2nd amendment solution?

3. Pretty much, without spelling it out explicitly

I obeyed DU's "four paragraph rule" but if you go to the link and read a little further, Drudge ran a headline about Beck and Thor talking about “taking out Trump.”

Which led to Beck slamming Drudge, of course.

2. "Brad Thor?"

HAHAHAHAHAHA!!

While I'm delighted that stupid man and his guests with made up names will be gone for a week, I don't see how pointing out the dilemma we faced on the 00s with a supine Congress and a bought USSC repeating itself with Trump is so horrible. It's not like he called for armed insurrection or some rabid nutcase to assassinate the guy. He did manage to stop short of that.
