Earlier today, we told you that conservative media entrepreneur Glenn Beck and female late-night host Sam Bee had joined forces to make a bipartisan coalition against Donald Trump.
If there’s anything we could use, in media and in the country, it’s some cross-aisle unity. Still, there are some who have an issue with the leaders of that particular movement being those two people.
Outlets like Fusion and Paste immediately called on Bee to reconsider “normalizing” Beck and his past behavior, which they see as dangerous. Other criticisms came from conservatives who are angry Beck seemingly defected and joined the enemy.
It came from both sides:
@BillHumphreyMA well Samantha Bee supports segregation in schools so this wasn’t out of character for her

GLENN BECK: I’m sorry I spent the last decade hitting people with my car but I promise I’ve completely changed, I have a different car.
