Zealous Ted Cruz supporter Glenn Beck says he does not believe the Republican presidential candidate has "enough game" to conduct affairs with multiple women but that if the allegations are true, he will drop the Texas senator "like a hot potato."
posted an audio of Beck on his Monday radio show discussing the National Enquirer
bombshell that was dropped on Cruz on Friday.
Beck gave several reasons for not believing the allegations.
"First, it is Ted Cruz," he said. "He doesn't have enough game. We're not talking Tom Cruise. It's Ted Cruz, have you watched him?"
The political Cruz is Cruz, Beck added.
"He's like that in real life, what you see in the debate is how he always is."
Beck says a second reason is that he has spent time with Cruz on the campaign trail, especially when he was around women such as "makeup ladies," and he's never seen evidence of Cruz acting inappropriately or like "a sexual predator."
"Third, this guy is driven... Ted has known that he could be the president from the beginning."
However, Beck stated that "I will drop him like a hot potato if these accusations were true...."
Beck said he could forgive one incident but not a pattern of adultery.
"I'm not here to condemn somebody for making a mistake. But if you're a serial guy, like five of them during this campaign, that's insane, a totally different person than we think Ted Cruz is…."
Beck caused a stir
last Friday, as the Enquirer story broke, by declaring Cruz to be "anointed for this time."
"I have seen this man's life," Beck wrote on his website. "I have watched this man. I have prayed about this man. I have prayed about it by myself, out loud, in quiet, with my family, with my staff, and I happen to believe that Ted Cruz actually was anointed for this time.
"Would there not be someone that was in the pool that might have the right qualifications for God? Is he that disinterested in all of us? Or is it perhaps possible that just like in the Bible, people were raised from birth for a specific time?...
"Are we really not that important enough for him to raise someone up, at this critical juncture?"
