Glenn Beck Visits CNN to Mock Santa Claus, Duck Dynasty Controversies

Glenn Beck sat down for a full hour on CNN’s Piers Morgan Live for an interview that will air Friday night, but it wasn’t Piers Morgan sitting on the other side of the table. Instead, conservative Crossfire host S.E. Cupp conducted the interview with the TheBlaze founder. The pair covered a wide variety of topics, but one during one interesting exchange, Beck decried that media obsession with stories like Megyn Kelly calling Santa Claus white and Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson comparing homosexual sex to bestiality.

After telling any parents with children watching to shut off their TVs, Beck looked into the camera and said, “Santa Claus isn’t real. He’s a fictional character.”

“What are you nuts?” he asked. “That’s the conversation we’re having?” On the Duck Dynasty issue, he said he would “stand with GLAAD” if they put their focus on the “hetero-fascism” coming out of Russia instead of the relatively tame comments from Robertson.
