Beck and Trump have had a tense history throughout the campaign season, with Beck charging that Trump is not a real conservative and the billionaire maintaining that Beck is only hostile toward him because he rejected invitations to appear on Beck’s show.
But Beck has turned to a higher power that, for the religious, supercedes a media fight. For Beck, the choice for Republican voters this season is about the ultimate fight between good and evil.
The prophesying reached a turning point Friday when Beck said on his TV show that he believes Cruz has literally been selected by God to guide the country.
“I have seen this man’s life,” Beck said of Cruz. “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.”
