Glenn Beck: I'm 'Embarrassed' I Ever Supported 'Clown' Sarah Palin (VIDEO)

One-time fringe-right best pals Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin have evidently had a falling out and it ain't pretty. After they appeared at the anti-Iran deal "protest" Wednesday, Beck took to his nationally syndicated radio show to blast the celebrity conservative for being unprincipled and all-around fatuous. 


"Yeah, I'm gonna say it," Beck began. "I don't care what Sarah Palin says anymore."

Gauntlet laid. He went on, increasingly frustrated, and though it was radio one can assume his face was red with outrage. 

"Sarah Palin has become a clown. I'm embarrassed I was once for Sarah Palin. Honestly, I'm embarrassed," the host said. "Why would I say that about Sarah Palin? Because I don't know who she is anymore. I don't know what she stands for. I saw a clip of her talking to Donald Trump, what the hell is that?"

So, after years of half-thoughts, racist dog-whistles, Islamophobic demagoguery, and reality TV spectacle, it was one interview with Donald Trump that finally put Mr. Beck over the edge? Okay.
