UPDATE: Glenn Beck has been suspended from XM Radio following my original reporting. Read my full statement here.
Today on Glenn Beck’s show, author Brad Thor advocated the assassination of Donald Trump:
I am about to suggest something very bad….With the feckless, spineless Congress we have, who will stand in the way of Donald Trump overstepping his constitutional authority as President? If Congress won’t remove him from office, what patriot will step up and do that? … 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.” – Brad Thor
Glenn Beck, who was already investigated by Secret Service agents before, replied, “I would agree with you on that.”
Thor tries to call this a “hypothetical asked as a thriller writer,” a thin defense to be sure.
