Up until Nov. 9, 2016, nationally syndicated radio host Glenn Beck didn't have much of anything nice to say about Donald Trump.
He compared the billionaire to Hitler, going so far as to declare Trump supporters were "brown shirts." He even rolled his own face in a bowl of crushed Cheetos in order to mock the Republican.
Now that Trump is the president-elect, however, Beck is singing an entirely different tune.
"I am reaching out today," he said during Wednesday's show. "I will call him today. Whether he takes my call—and I'm not saying he's going to shun it, I mean, he's now the president-elect, so he's a little busy—but I will call him today. And if I don't get a hold of him, I will write a letter, and I will even post the letter so you can read it. And I will reach out to him today.
"He has our support, as I said from the beginning. We will give whoever is president our support. That would have gone for Hillary Clinton as well. I won't sell out my values, but I will support you.
"We cannot—we cannot have a failed presidency. And anyone who is—who says they want to be the president of all people, I am—I'm there. ...
"He has said before, he doesn't need us, doesn't need our audience or whatever. And that's campaign. He's now the president. We are there. At least I am there, and this show is there. So whatever we can do to help him, as long as we're staying constitutional, we're there."
Beck said the sudden change of heart was brought on after listening to Trump's victory speech early Wednesday morning. The president-elect had said, "For those who have chosen not to support me in the past, of which there were a few people, I'm reaching out to you for your guidance and your help so that we can work together and unify our great country."
