Bob Beckel back on the air, with nice things to say about Donald Trump!

Bob BeckelFormer Fox News personality Bob Beckel is back in the public eye, and defending Donald Trump’s handling of the Muslim question controversy.

Beckel has been gone from TV, save for some recent appearances on CNN, since Fox News let him go as a co-host of its hit show “The Five” after he had been out for an extended period for drug rehab.

But on Saturday, Beckel re-emerged on CNN’s “Smerconish” and defended Trump against mainstream media criticism for his reaction when a member of the crowd at a rally Thursday lclaimed President Obama is a secret Muslim who’s not even an American citizen.

Beckel contended that Trump did the “politically expedient” thing by sidestepping the question because he has to be concerned with winning week to week right now.

It’s not the first time Beckel — the in-house grumpy liberal against conservative co-hosts on “The Five” — has defended Trump on CNN either.

Back on Aug. 28, Beckel told Don Lemon correctly that Trump was not a passing fad and would “be around a while.” In an interview with Lemon on Friday, he said the billionaire had been “understimated” since he entered the race.

And while host Michael Smerconish continued to insist Saturday that Trump couldn’t get the Republican nomination the way he currently speaks, Beckel said that at this stage of the game, that isn’t the point.

“It’s not about nomination politics,” he said. “Right now, it’s about getting to the next week.”

    Trump is way ahead of every other Republican candidate in the polls, yet Smerconish insists he cannot get the nomination. So how does that work ? Is he suggesting some small group is going to usurp the people’s authority to nominate their candidate ?

    Bob, glad to see you back, thanks for being truthful regarding Trump. Stay healthy, stay strong and I hope we all see you back to work regularly.

    Since when is it the responsibility of the other party to defend a president…did the dems defend Bush? Considering that the repubs are running against a POTUS, that in every sense has been pro-muslim at the expense of America’s interests, they should be piling it on.

    If the dems feel that Hussein is a Christian, let them present some actual proof…other than just the words of a confirmed liar.

    Bob probably admires Trump’s views on China. Bob is one of the few out there that realize the seriousness of their role in the world. Miss the old guy on The Five!

    The question isn’t whether Obama is a Muslim – the question is why does he get away with selling us out to the Muslims every chance he gets.
