Prominent conservative radio host Glenn Beck is well-known for his anti-Trump position, but is praising Michelle Obama a bridge too far?
On his Friday show, Beck said, “I want to start with the most effective speech, the most effective political speech I have heard since Ronald Reagan.”

On Wednesday, the First Lady spoke at a Manchester, New Hampshire rally on behalf of Hillary Clinton.
Referring to Trump’s recent open-mic scandal, Obama said, “And I can’t stop thinking about this. It has shaken me to my core that I couldn’t have predicted. So many have worked for so many years to end this kind of violence and abuse and disrespect, but here we are.”
Of Obama’s speech, Beck said, “Whether you like her or not, whether you even believe her or not, the words she spoke were true and this is what happens when the truth based deep eternal principles is spoken. This is what happens when we abandon our principles. It makes me very sad, that this wasn’t spoken by the conservatives.”
The Blaze founder also recognized the irony, saying, “Coming from the Party that excused Bill Clinton, from the stage promoting the woman who threatened the woman that dared to speak up is nauseating, but the words remain true.”
Oh, there’s certainly irony, and more than Beck suspects:
Beyonce, cited by Michelle Obama as role model for her daughters, sings about "pussy curvalicious, served delicious." Oh my. I just fainted.

Last week, the radio host wrote regarding the tapes, “It is not acceptable to ask a moral, dignified man to cast his vote to help elect an immoral man who is absent decency or dignity.”
If Beck had to pick someone today, the Constitution Party’s Darrell Castle would get his vote.
However, one thing Beck and other NeverTrumpers fail to explain is exactly how conservatives are supposed to enact anything on their agenda, from securing the border to protecting gun rights, religious freedom and the unborn, with Hillary Clinton in office and a permanent Leftist Supreme Court entrenched at least for a generation.
Beck will have his “principles,” but the America we know and love will be long gone.
