GOP nominee Donald Trump may have gotten conservative radio host Glenn Beck, known for his anti-Trump stance, to cave-in, or at least finally soften to the idea of a Trump presidency.
Former Beck employee Oliver Darcy tweeted out an email he received from the Trump campaign, which noted something very telling at the top.

The top of the email notes “The views of our sponsors do not necessarily reflect the views of Glenn Beck or of Mercury Radio Arts, Inc.”
The note prompted the ex-Beck employee to wonder if Beck is allowing or sold his email list to the Trump campaign so he can reach more conservative voters.
Beck discussed the email on his radio show this morning and attempted to mock Trump for needing him, according to Right Wing Watch.
“This guy has not reached out to our audience, ever,” Beck said. “Ever! He doesn’t think you matter … But this is a recognition that he needs this audience. This is a recognition of, ‘I’m getting my ass kicked and I have to go to Glenn frickin’ Beck and his audience because I need those ten million people to consider me.'”
“I think Donald Trump is dangerous,” Beck continued. “I think he is scary as hell … He’s not man enough or have the balls enough to come on [my show,] but I’ll take his money.”
“I’m sure Donald Trump didn’t expect this conversation to be happening,” he said. “I don’t think he was involved in this; his campaign did all of this. This should be recognized as Donald Trump is in so much trouble, he is now paying me to run ads in my email newsletters to reach out to an audience that he said he didn’t need, nor does he even want. That’s how much trouble they’re in! To me, that speaks volumes. Volumes.”
But, Twitter users have a different idea on the controversy.
