Conservative blogger and broadcaster Erick Erickson joined Glenn's radio program Wednesday to discuss the political landscape and the upcoming 2016 RedState Gathering in Denver, Colorado.
When Glenn asked Erickson how we could put the fractured alliance between conservatives and libertarians back together, Erickson expressed his doubts on this happening anytime soon.
"All the people who supported Trump in the primary are mad at the establishment. They hate the Republicans in Washington," Erickson said. "Whether Trump wins or loses, these are going to be the Republicans still in charge, and Donald Trump has already said he's perfectly happy cutting deals with those people, because he likes them."
In an effort to help bridge this gap, Erickson said an invitation had gone out for libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson to attend this year's RedState Gathering --- where conservative activists from around the country can meet face-to-face --- taking place August 12-14.
While Johnson hadn't replied to the invitation at the time of the interview, others who had committed to attend include Greg Abbott, Carly Fiorina, Ben Sasse, Ken Cuccinelli and others.
"We're not going to have a lot of Trump supporters there," Erickson said. "It will be a 'safe space' for Republicans who don't care for him."
Glenn will be there as well, delivering the keynote speech on the opening night.
"These are the people that stick together because we'll be the leaders of the conservative movement --- the next chapter," Glenn said.
