‘Did it Shake Your Faith?’: Tucker Carlson Grills Glenn Beck About Trump’s Election

On his first broadcast at the 9 PM ET timeslot, Tucker Carlson began the program with Glenn Beck, and right away it got pretty interesting.

Carlson kept pressing Beck about his religious faith, wondering if his belief and faith had been shaken due to Donald Trump’s election, considering that Beck had previously said that Ted Cruz had been anointed by God to stop Trump.

Carlson asked, “Because he didn’t win and Trump did, did it shake your faith?”

The Fox News host also grilled Beck on his feelings towards Cruz, bringing up when Glenn got upset with Cruz for endorsing Trump late in the campaign. Beck calmly said that he and Cruz are still friends to this day and that he was mostly disappointed with the timing.

The Blaze founder also explained that he would never endorse another candidate in the future and that while he didn’t support Trump, his political beliefs have not changed as he’s still a libertarian.

Carlson also brought up Beck leaving Fox News and wanted to know if he had any regrets considering his financial problems with The Blaze in the aftermath of him leaving the Fair and Balanced network. Beck denied that he was having business issues but did admit that it was poorly run at one point.
