Glenn Beck, a man once described by Forbes as someone who's "managed to monetize virtually everything that comes out of his mouth," has (seemingly) had a profound change of heart. Following his call for conservatives to "empathize" with Black Lives Matter activists in a New York Times op-ed back in September, the Blaze founder joined Samantha Bee on Full Frontal on Monday to declare a common enemy: the Precedent-elect, a.k.a. Mr. Brexit, a.k.a. the former Apprentice host.
"For people in my world, even if all you said for the rest of your life was reasonable things, I feel like you've still earned a permanent side eye. Is that OK with you?" Bee told Beck while they both rocked some seriously ugly Xmas sweaters. All differences aside, Bee is calling for a "coalition of non-partisan decency," an unlikely union made possible by a common enemy: Trumpism.
"As a guy who's done damage, I don't want to do any more damage," Beck explained. "I know what I did. I helped divide. I'm willing to take that. My message to you is to please don't make the mistakes I made. I think all of us are doing it. We're doing it on Facebook. We're doing it on Twitter. We tear each other apart and we don't see the human on the other side."
To seal the deal, Bee and Beck then joined each other for a bite of hopefully bullshit-free cake.
