Call it the clash of conservative firebrands.

Taking a page out of Sarah Palin‘s book, Glenn Beck posted a comment on social media on Saturday in response to a potshot from Palin last week while stumping for Donald Trump.

And Beck drew into question just how “unhinged” the former Alaska governor may be in her “fantasy world.”

While speaking at a Milwaukee County Republican dinner on Friday, Palin called out Trump’s rival Ted Cruz for “welcoming” illegal immigrants … “even seducing them with gift baskets.” The comment was in reference to Cruz joining with Beck in 2014 to hand out care packages with soccer balls, teddy bears, and other items to illegal immigrant children at the border.

Beck, an avid Cruz supporter, explained on Facebook that they were there to “recognize the human plight of those on our border … [and] while we cared for these children, we also insisted that they needed to go back to their home country.”

He said they also called for tougher actions from Congress to stop President Obama’s DREAMer program while “Trump was meeting with Dreamers and telling them that he was against those who stood for tough border policies.”

Beck’s remarks then got a little more personal.

“Are your words and actions during the Tea Party days consistent with your words and actions today?” he asked Palin.

“If you really think the American people believe that Mike Lee, Louie Gohmert and Ted Cruz are open-border people and only began to talk about the border because of Donald Trump —

“— you just might be unhinged enough to believe the silent response, the checking of email and rolling of eyes during your speech in Wisconsin was belief in the fantasy world of Donald Trump you now inhabit.”

(Palin’s stump speech did go over somewhat flat, prompting her to say afterwards, “At least they didn’t boo.”)
