The current saga swirling around the 2016 presidential election involves rumors that Trump's latest gaffes have the GOP looking for a way out.
"Have you seen the rumors? And I have now heard it from two very credible sources that the RNC, or at least the politicians on the Hill that were for Donald Trump and have all lined up for Donald Trump, are now looking at rule number nine," Glenn said Thursday on his radio program.
Rule number nine outlines the RNC's process for filling vacancies in nominations.
In addition to those sources, Glenn also heard from Michael Opelka with TheBlaze.
"He said, 'It's everywhere, that the GOP is in full-fledged panic, and they want out of the Donald Trump thing,'" Glenn shared.
"A little late for that," Co-host Pat Gray chimed in.
"Yes, a little late," Glenn agreed.
"That rule only applies to him withdrawing," Stu said.
This latest speculation comes on the heels of a rumored "intervention" with Trump.
"You remember that meeting we talked about yesterday? We wondered if that were true [and] they were really meeting to have a come to Jesus with him . . . I think that meeting is like, "Is there anything we can do to get you to walk away?" Glenn said.
