Glenn has it on good authority that RNC Chairman Reince Priebus nearly resigned on Monday following the blowout from Trump's leaked 2005 comments. While the resignation never happened, Priebus did receive a rather threatening note via Twitter:
"I mean, I have to laugh. But, yeah, it's obviously serious," Co-host Stu Burguiere said on radio Wednesday.
"It's obviously very serious," Glen said.
Read below or listen to the full segment for answers to these questions:
• What stopped Reince Priebus from resigning?
• How does the letter to Priebus echo the Occupy Wall Street mentality?
• Does Donald Trump care about the Supreme Court like Jeffy cares about salad?
Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:
Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors:
GLENN: This is what Cernovich posted yesterday to Reince Priebus. Now, let me give you a little inside information.
I have it on really good authority that Reince was going to resign on Monday. But --
STU: What! Really?
GLENN: Yes. He was going to resign, but the debate went well enough. That's why it was going one direction, where everybody started to bail on this. The -- the Trump campaign did well enough in the debate that he said, "Well, wait." And that's why you had some people jumping on board on Sunday saying, you know, "We got to dump Trump." And then on Monday afternoon, they're like, "No, wait. I'm okay."
So Reince is between this rock and a hard place.
STU: So he was resigning because he didn't want to stand by Trump?
GLENN: The whole thing was falling apart, yes.
STU: Or he was resigning because he was taking responsibility for --
GLENN: The whole thing falling apart, yes.
STU: You have this on good -- this is kind of a big story. Why are we doing this in hour three?
You have it on good authority that Reince was going to step down --
GLENN: On Monday, yes. Yes.
STU: Wow. I mean, that's a huge story.
STU: Who told you?
GLENN: I can't tell you that.
STU: Why? Come on, we're friends.
JEFFY: When did they tell you?
GLENN: I can't tell you that.
STU: Don't tell the audience, just tell me.
So Dear Reince -- this was written to him yesterday.
Dear Reince, sabotage against Trump is occurring at the highest levels of the G.O.P.
I want you to listen to this.
We are going to respond in kind, and we will spoil every down-ballot candidate on November 8th, unless hostilities against the Republican nominees cease. Idle threat? Have your worthless consultants and social media gurus take a look at my Twitter analytics. I am only one pro-Trump account, and I am doing 115 million views a month. Ninety percent of my readers are pro-Trump, and we show up in real life as well. Cries about giving Congress to the Democrats mean nothing to us. We have our own move -- we have our own move planned for 2018.
Listen to this. We have our own move planned for 2018, called Revolution '18.
We will be running primary challengers against all of those who backstab Trump. For the greater good of America, we will work with you. You have one week to issue a standdown order to those who sabotage Trump. We will be stopping by local G.O.P. offices. If those offices are close or hostile to Trump, we will take the next steps.
What are those next steps?
If the G.O.P. continues to sabotage Trump, we will begin spoiling the ballots of every Republican running for office this election. We do not work for Trump. We work for the American people who have watched globalist Paul Ryan welcome Islamic terrorists into America, making all of our families unsafe.
We are in a fight for our lives and believe that the G.O.P. leadership in Congress poses a threat to the lives of ourselves and our loved ones.
Now we're talking self-defense. No better friend, no worse enemy, Mike Cernovich, Operation Purge Cucks.
STU: I mean, I have to laugh. But, yeah, it's obviously serious.
GLENN: It's obviously very serious.
STU: Now, of course, they tried this against Paul Ryan and lost 84 to 16 in the primary.
GLENN: I understand that.
STU: But these things build over time.
GLENN: These things build over time. This is the Occupy Wall Street mentality. These people are going to be very, very angry. And Donald Trump is going to play into this. If he loses, he is going to be their champion.
And he is going to use this -- he is going to use this as a way to launch his television network, mark my words.
STU: He -- Donald Trump is essentially doing what, whoever this guy is, is suggesting. He's out there now attacking Paul Ryan, John McCain publicly.
GLENN: Yes, yes. Yes.
STU: He's doing all the things -- I mean, he's obviously on board for this generalized strategy.
STU: What's interesting about that is so many people make the argument that the reason why you need Donald Trump is the Supreme Court.
Now, if Donald Trump becomes president and loses all of his down-ballot seats and loses the Senate, he's not going to be able to get any of the Supreme Court justices passed, showing that that is not a priority to him at all.
STU: Donald Trump cares about the Supreme Court like Jeffy cares about salad. Not at all.
