Ultra-conservative radio show presenter Glenn Beck joined super liberal talk show host Samantha Bee for a weird but interesting interview where the two "strange bedfellows" united despite their vast differences to take down "Trumpism" in America. Talk about an odd couple.
First, the two exchanged pleasantries. Beck told Bee, "My audience would like to stab you relentlessly in the eye," to which Bee responded, "My audience wants to kill me for normalizing a lunatic like yourself." Then the unlikely couple got down to business about why they both think a Trump presidency is dangerous for the future of America.
WHOA, talk about sexual tension. Just kidding...or am I?
Glenn Beck, who has truly said some wildly offensive things in the past, and according to The Daily Beast was even been considered too "far right" for Fox News for a time, has had a uncharacteristic streak of woke-ness lately. He penned an essay for the New York Times about the importance of Black Lives Matter, spoke out against Donald Trump and his administration, and helped to administer food and toys to illegal immigrants near the Mexican border. Furthermore, Beck takes ownership of widening the divide between conservative and liberal Americans, and offered Bee some advice: "please don't make the mistakes that I made."
At the end of the interview, Beck and Bee shared some cake and awkwardly held hands, even though it felt "so creepy." Yeah, it was weird for us, too.
If these two can put their differences aside, anyone can.
