A fan didn’t like Buck’s take on Donald Trump, and he responded in the classiest way possible

A lot of pundits have been knocking Donald Trump's conservative credentials in recent days, yet his poll numbers keep climbing. Clearly, The Donald's tough talk has connected with people's frustrations. On his radio show, Buck Sexton joined many of the voices criticizing Trump's record. He got a lot of pushback from listeners, and decided to post a letter he wrote to one Team Buck member who took issue with his comments. It's not the sarcastic or frustrated argument you've probably been seeing from Trump critics, but a well-written and (seemingly) final word on the subject.

Got a lot of heat from some of you on my Trump commentary- including an email from a longtime listener and friend who was really fired up about how wrong I am on this--- so I decided to post my email response, which would also be my response to many of the comments I've seen here over the last 24 hours. Give it a read (please read all of it if you plan to scream at me in all caps)- and of course, share your thoughts:

----------------------------

Dear (TeamBuck member),

Always good to hear from you, even when you are writing in to express your vehement disagreement with me.

Before I address your criticisms: I think you would concur that I spend a vast majority of my radio time on things that matter to us all, and leave the petty intra-party GOP squabbles and poll-chasing to others to sort out.

However, I agree that, in this case, with the rise of Trump, I have deviated from that norm, and with that in mind, as you are a loyal and respected member of the TeamBuck radio tribe, Im writing to give you a full and considered response.

Before I go into my reasoning- let me say that I am already aware that some members of Teambuck (yourself included) strongly disagree with me on this Trump issue. And by no means am I going to needlessly antagonize some of my supporters and friends by continuing to harp on my opinion regarding one GOP candidate out of 15.

That said, it is because I believe so deeply in conservatism and Constitutionalism (as well my adamant refusal to pander, ever) that I felt compelled to speak out about the Trump candidacy. For me, it feels like watching a close friend walk up to the altar with someone you know has cheated on them time and again in the past. The choice is theirs to make, but I would feel it ignoble to stand by and say nothing.

I spoke out on Trump because I love my fellow conservatives and I love this country. Please keep that in mind as you read below:

Donald Trump, by his record, is not a conservative. I do not believe anyone really argues otherwise, as Trump has over the last ten years advocated for socialized medicine, a wealth tax, and amnesty for illegal aliens. He has very publicly praised Hillary Clinton (and given money to her campaign), expressed the deepest respect for Barack Obama's skills as President, and denigrated George W Bush while he was still in office.

Now, I understand that the argument is made that Trump is saying the right things today, that he is saying what needs to be heard today, and that he is giving voice to people who want to be heard- today. I know- in fact I share- deep unease with the current state of politics in this country. And Trump is articulating those frustrations.

But Trump has a long history of saying whatever will garner the most press at any given time, and so my concern is for what he will say (and do) tomorrow.

Character is destiny... and Trump is a character above all else.

I also do not understand why so many who wish for liberty and Constitutional governance are quick to forget about Ted Cruz, who I do not believe has to prove his conservative credentials to anyone, or Scott Walker, who while imperfect on the issues has fought- and won- against the progressive union machine in a Democrat stronghold. To ignore these- and even some other GOP candidates- I believe is a mistake.

With all of that said- and with full knowledge that I have almost certainly not in any way changed your position about Trump as a candidate- let me say that I understand the difference between sharing an opinion among like-minded friends and patriots- and lecturing them. I think my thoughts on Trump are well-known to TeamBuck at this point- and I do not intend to turn this presidential campaign season into one long anti-Trump harangue.

I have told my TeamBuck family how I feel about this possible future spouse of theirs, so to speak...if any one of them wants to sign on the dotted line and say "I do," it is up to them.

We have a busy summer ahead in the Freedom hut: illegal immigration, ISIS, Obamacare, gun control schemes, Russian expansionism- and of course the unknown unknowns of the news cycle. I hope that you will accept my respectful disagreement on the issue of a Trump primary win (I would vote for Trump over Hillary, of course) and join me again, with the rest of TeamBuck, as we continue our mission to grow together in wisdom, knowledge, and friendship.

Shields High,

Buck

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."

Glenn Beck has had enough of exposing scandal after scandal, just to have everyone look the other way: Benghazi, Hillary Clinton's emails, Joe and Hunter Biden's dealings in Ukraine and China … the list goes on, but no consequences are paid. Now, the media have called the election for Joe Biden and insist no one can question it. But for many of the more than 71 million people who voted for President Trump, our search for the truth isn't over yet.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn called out the left's long list of alleged corruption that has gone unchecked and stressed that Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process of investigating the multiple allegations of election fraud to ensure our voting systems are fair.

"I don't know about you, but I'm tired. I am worn out. I am fed up!" Glenn said during his opening monologue. "I've had enough. I am tired of exposing corruption, doing our homework, even going overseas and having documents translated to make sure they're exactly right, [and] presenting the evidence ... except, once we expose it, nothing happens. Nobody goes to jail. Nobody pays for a damn thing any more!"

While the mainstream media has called the election for Joe Biden, Glenn gives a rallying cry to conservatives. Many of the over 71 million people who voted for President Trump are split between frustration and an urge to do something. The multiple allegations of election fraud are largely out of our hands, and Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process to ensure our voting systems are fair.

But that doesn't mean we have to sit on our hands. There is an urgent need to focus on the ongoing Senate races. Glenn has warned us of the Left's radical plans should they sweep this election, and the wolves are already descending on Georgia.

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn reveals the desperate measures they're taking to win two Georgia runoff races in January and claim the Senate. Senator Mike Lee joins to warn what will happen to the country if Chuck Schumer becomes Senate majority leader and why we must have a transparent process so that Americans can trust the final count.

Later, Glenn reveals a new project for Americans who are not ready to roll over and let the Marxists win the battle for our country.
