No, Glenn Beck Did Not Say He Would Have Stabbed Trump at Last Night’s GOP Debate


Glenn Beck Donald Trump

The Daily Caller accidentally ran an incorrect take regarding Glenn Beck‘s Friday radio show, and other media outlets — including Mediaite — shortly followed suit.

The conservative radio host — and fervent Ted Cruz supporter — was mistakenly thought to have revealed on his show Friday what he would have done if he were on stage at Thursday night’s Republican debate in Detroit: stab Donald Trump.

The Daily Caller reported that Beck described the situation of standing next to the GOP frontrunner with his weapon of choice at the Fox Theatre, telling his listeners with a laugh, “If I was close enough and had a knife, really… the stabbing just wouldn’t stop.”

However, Stu Burguiere, the head writer of The Glenn Beck Program, took to Twitter to clarify that the comments were aimed at him, not Trump, once media outlets began to ran with the unclear distinction:

The comment came at the tail end of a discussion regarding a key question that was posed to all four GOP candidates at last night’s debate regarding their support for the eventual party nominee. Although all of the non-Trump candidates said they would support the party, Beck seemed to differ in his opinion.
