Glenn Beck Program Suspended From SiriusXM Over Brad Thor Interview

(Breitbart News)

SiriusXM has yanked Glenn Beck's radio program after a guest — with a provocative query about "what patriot" would "stand in the way" of an unrestrained president Donald Trump — allegedly implied an assassination hit, Breitbart News reports.

SiriusXM hosts Stephen Bannon and David Webb announced a week-long suspension of the program, adding Webb would temporarily take over the show on the Patriot Channel.

An audio of the announcement was posted by Breitbart News.

"SiriusXM encourages a diversity of discourse and opinion on our talk programs. However, comments recently made by a guest on the independently produced Glenn Beck Program, in our judgment, may be reasonably construed by some to have been advocating harm against an individual currently running for office, which we cannot and will not condone," a statement from SiriusXM says, Breitbart News reports.

"For that reason, we have suspended The Glenn Beck Program from our Patriot channel for the coming week and are evaluating its place in our lineup going forward. SiriusXM is committed to a spirited, robust, yet responsible political conversation and believes this action reflects those values."

The suspension comes after Beck interviewed writer Brad Thor last Wednesday, when he likened Trump to a South American-style dictator who would cause an "extinction-level event" if elected.

Thor declared in such a case, Congress would not be able to remove Trump from office by "legal means," asking "what patriot will step up and do that" if Trump oversteps his constitutional restraints. Beck agreed with Thor's assessment.

Breitbart provided both a transcript and audio of the exchange.
