• Beck: Why My Sarah Palin ‘Clown’ Comment Was ‘Childish’

    Glenn Beck apologized Friday for calling Sarah Palin a “clown” in an angry tirade on his radio program Thursday, admitting it was a “unkind” and “childish” thing to do.

    “We all have bad days. We all have bad moments. We all have moments of frustration and anger,” Beck said. “And if you were listening to yesterday’s program, yesterday was one of mine. I’ve always told you that I lead with my mistakes … so I’m going to lead with it.”

    “I stand by all of the comments that I made yesterday, with the exception of one,” he said. “I called Sarah Palin a clown yesterday. And last night, I was really bothered by it because it was unkind, it was childish, and it was wrong of me to name-call.”

    The “clown” bit was apparently triggered by watching her be chummy with Donald Trump at Wednesday’s rally against the Iran deal in D.C.. He elaborates on in his new Facebook post about his personal falling-out with Palin and explains that what unnerves him is Palin’s and the tea party’s embrace of Trump:

    I do not understand her position and love of Trump. He is clearly a progressive, not a small government constitutionalist…

    But he is also a bully, sexist, cruel, an ego manic and narcissist in ways that makes Barack Obama seem like Saint Francis…

    As Sarah Palin holds a unique place with the tea party, I expect more from her. Perhaps this is wrong of me. To support Trump and ignore his very disturbing policies makes you a populist at best. But I am almost alone in this it seems. At least with almost anyone in my job. Maybe they all have a personal relationship with him or I am just wrong…

    What principles that the tea party is founded on is she promoting with her love of trump?…

    [My personal grievance with her] was Coupled with total confusion on her love affair with Donald Trump (made worse in my head by my lack of ability to grasp what 30% of small government Self proclaimed constitutionalist, values and religious people see in him.
