After winning the Republican primary in his home state of Ohio Tuesday night, Republican presidential candidate John Kasich announced that he plans to stay the course. Glenn Beck had a few choice words for him.
“Kasich, I mean, excuse my language, but, you son of a bitch, the republic is at stake,” Beck said Wednesday on The Glenn Beck Radio Program. “This is not like a normal race. The republic is at stake.”
Continuing his criticism of Kasich, Beck, a top surrogate for Republican candidate Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, argued that the Ohio governor is “delusional” if he thinks he can win. Additionally, he thinks the Ohio governor made his victory speech Tuesday night “about himself” instead of about the country.
The conservative firebrand didn’t like the confetti at Kasich’s victory rally, either.
“When I saw that confetti come down on his head last night, I was like, ‘What did you win?’ That’s like confetti coming down when I go to the bathroom and I flush my toilet and it works,” Beck quipped. “Of course, it’s supposed to work. … This is your home state. You just won your home state.”
Beck argued that as long as Kasich stays in the race, he essentially acts as a spoiler, effectively helping GOP contender Donald Trump, and if it’s between Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton and Trump, a third-party candidate could emerge.
“If you put this together and it was an incredible third party, not establishment, an incredible third party, and said, ‘We’re not going to be the GOP anymore,’ I think you get a lot of independents voting for it,” Beck said. “Because the GOP, especially if the GOP throws their weight behind Donald Trump, if he wins the nomination and they throw their weight behind Donald Trump, it’s over.”
