Trump Foe Beck To Kasich: ‘You Son Of A Bitch, The Republic Is At Stake!’

Conservative radio host and former Fox News personality Glenn Beck called for Republican presidential candidate Ohio Gov. John Kasich to drop out, warning Americans that “the Republic is at stake” if Donald Trump wins.

Beck said on his radio program that Kasich was “delusional” for staying in the race and that doing so was “arrogance.”

Beck has hit the campaign trail with Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in a move to prevent Trump from winning the nomination. Beck has said that Trump’s campaign benefits from Kasich staying in the race, dividing voters who could be supporting Cruz.

“This guy is going to be remembered as a guy who possibly destroyed the Republic,” Beck said. “Kasich, I mean, excuse my language, but, you son of a bitch, the Republic is at stake. This is not like a normal race. The Republic is at stake!”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
