Radio Host Glenn Beck Under Secret Service Investigation Over Donald Trump Stabbing Threat


by Gina Cassini | Top Right News

Conservative talk show host Glenn Beck is under federal investigation for threatening to repeatedly stab GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump.

As Top Right News reported, Beck made his shocking apparent murder threat during his Friday show.

While Beck’s co-host later went online to insist that the threat was actually directed at him and not Trump, the Secret Service appears to be “taking the threat seriously and is unwilling to leave the matter up to chance”, CBS 11 Dallas is reporting (via DailyCaller).

The radio show exchange started after Beck, who has endorsed and campaigned with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), talked about how other candidates on stage at the recent debate with Trump should have answered when host Chris Wallace asked them if they would support Trump if he won the nomination.

After giving part of how he might answer that question, Beck then said:

“If I was close enough and I had a knife. Really. I mean the stabbing just wouldn’t stop,” 

Audio below:

Beck, who started his career as a morning “shock jock” in New Haven, Connecticut, has become known for bizarre rantings on air, some of which got him fired from both CNN and FoxNews in recent years.

Since Beck endorsed Cruz he has turned his fury on Trump. Over the past 4 months, Beck  has compared Trump to Adolf Hitler, and his followers to “Brownshirts;” called Trump’s wife Melania a “Lesbian porn star” over some risque modeling photos; said he would vote for Democrat Socialist Bernie Sanders over the GOP billionaire; and even posted a fraudulent Tweet from Trump which Beck claimed “proved” Trump voted for Barack Obama. Beck later apologized for the last incident.


Despite insistence from co-host Stu Burguiere that Beck only wanted to stab him again and again, not Trump, the Secret Service has plans to push the investigation.

This isn’t the first time the Secret Service has gotten involved regarding death threats directed at Trump. An Egyptian flight student was recently arrested after writing a Facebook post saying he’d gladly serve a life sentence if he could kill Trump. Emadeldin Elsayed has said he will voluntarily return back to his home, instead of being deported. He is currently sitting in a Southern California jail. The State Department has pulled his visa.

    Glen Beck seems to be unhinged. Maybe he should be under investigation for his mental state.

      along with a bunch of others !!

      there is a conservative party in NY but IT LOSES ALL THE TIME
      or haven’t Beck clowns got that –
      in fact – that is why Trump is on top – we are getting SICK AND TIRED of LOSERS.
      The Left is blabbering about demographic destiny – and all they do is LOSE.
      So – like the Brits say – Get Stuffed.

    He deserves to be locked up.

  • Elena Indigo

    Disgusting. He needs to be charged with intent to kill. What a dummy. I hope his talk show is cancelled.

  • margaretbugg

    I listened to him just this week – he seems to hate Trump!

    • malady43

      LOL, ya think?

  • Steve Stamilio

    Really,really,what a crock. Beck actually prayed for Trumps safety before. Comedy people comedy.

    • Wiggle D

      Even so, there are some things you NEVER joke about.

  • rose ayers

    someone should have done something about hi years ago he has a hatred for everyone, blacks and Mexicans especially, put him with o j

  • Sgiff

    That’s ridiculous, you guys are just ridiculous, if you listen to the audio he was laughing, it was clearly a joke. This is a complete bullcrap story.

    • Ken Curtis

      Lesson learned, you don’t joke about killing the president or someone under secret service protection.

  • sandyaz

    Nice try, but no cigar. Listen to the exchange, he was talking to/teasingly threatening Stu. Get a grip. Ya’ll need help if you can’t do your due diligence when it comes to going to the source, listing to the tapes. Should be ashamed as it shows poor reporting.

  • Kelly Scherer

    Whether Beck was joking or not in this incident, it’s been obvious for a long time that he’s mentally unstable.


    Why is this Beck referred-to as a ”Conservative”? The few times I’ve heard this guy speak he sounded deranged, mentaly-ill. By these criteria shouldn’t he be referred-to as a ”Liberal?”

  • noillegals

    the goofy bastard has finally slipped off the track!

  • malady43

    I always thought that Glenn Beck was really becoming unhinged. Those remarks he made about stabbing him to death is a threat against the front runner soon to be the next President of the United States.. This is very serious.

  • chickief

    Freedom of speech is 1 thing but making a direct threat is quite another.

  • hiking

    I used to like Glen Beck’s website until I started crosschecking his news stories. Very one sided. Becks attacks on Trump give democrats an advantage by splitting up the conservative vote. Beck needs to shut his pie hole and calm down. Cruz wont win anyway.

    • mistel

      One-sided? Er, yes, his show is conservative. If there are any liberal shows left, their slant is liberal. Do you see how that works? As for Cruz, you’ll no doubt be shocked at the fact that some Americans vote on issues and character instead of emotion. Pretty radical, eh?
