Glenn Beck: ‘Obama Made Me a Better Man’
Apparently, Glenn Beck looks up to President Obama as a role model.
The Hill reports:
Conservative commentator Glenn Beck offered some praise for President Obama during a recent interview.
“I did a lot of freaking out about Barack Obama,” Beck told The New Yorker.
But, he added: “Obama made me a better man.”
Beck also expressed regret for calling the president racist. During a 2009 interview, Beck said the president had a “deep-seated hatred for white people or the white culture.”
“There are things unique to the African-American experience that I cannot relate to,” Beck said in the recent interview with the magazine.
“I had to listen to them.”
The TV and radio host, who supported GOP Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas for president, also railed against Donald Trump. He described an interaction he had with the Republican nominee and called Trump “dangerously unhinged.”
“And, for all the things people have said about me over the years, I should be able to spot dangerously unhinged,” Beck added.
Beck has blasted Trump the past.
Last month, he called the real estate mogul a “sociopath” who can’t connect with others “on a human level.”
He has said that opposing Trump is the “moral, ethical” choice, even if it results in the election of Democrat Hillary Clinton.
