Glenn Beck suspended by SiriusXM for threats against Donald Trump

Glenn BeckSiriusXM announced Tuesday that “The Glenn Beck Program” will be suspended from the Patriot Channel “for the coming week,” and that the company is “evaluating its place in our lineup going forward.”

“SiriusXM encourages a diversity of discourse and opinion on our talk programs,” the company said in a statement.

“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.”

Discussing a potential Donald Trump presidency, Brad Thor, a guest on Becks show suggested that impeachment would likely be off the table.

“If Congress won’t remove him from office, what patriot will step up and do that if, if, he oversteps his mandate as president, his constitutional-granted authority, I should say, as president,” Thor said. “If he oversteps that, how do we get him out of office? And I don’t think there is a legal means available. I think it will be a terrible, terrible position the American people will be in to get Trump out of office because you won’t be able to do it through Congress.”

To a lot of people, it sounded like Thor was advocating assassination.
