Washington Examiner — Since endorsing Ted Cruz, conservative commentator and media mogul Glenn Beck has used his platforms on radio and TV to spread the word — that a Donald Trump presidency is not in God’s plan.
Beck and Trump have had a tense history throughout the campaign season, with Beck charging that Trump is not a real conservative and the billionaire maintaining that Beck is only hostile toward him because he rejected invitations to appear on Beck’s show.
But Beck has turned to a higher power that, for the religious, supercedes a media fight. For Beck, the choice for Republican voters this season is about the ultimate fight between good and evil.
The prophesying reached a turning point Friday when Beck said on his TV show that he believes Cruz has literally been selected by God to guide the country.
“I have seen this man’s life,” Beck said of Cruz. “I have watched this man. I have prayed about this man. I have prayed about it by myself, out loud, in quiet, with my family, with my staff, and I happen to believe that Ted Cruz actually was anointed for this time.”
It was the latest in a series of proclamations since Beck officially backed the Texas senator at a campaign rally ahead of the Iowa caucuses.
“If Donald Trump wins, it’s going to be a snowball to hell,” Beck predicted when he announced his support for Cruz.
