Radio host Glenn Beck[1] told his listeners on Friday that media coverage of President Trump[2]’s “animal” comments regarding the MS-13 gang has forced him to join Team MAGA.

Coverage by The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Associated Press and other news outlets that led readers to believe Mr. Trump[3] called all immigrants “animals” was Mr. Beck[4]’s political breaking point this week.

But he’s going to get blasted anyway for ‘selling out’ by some anti-Trumpers who’ve spent the last three years appreciating him as a rare voice of MAGA skepticism among the marquee names of conservative talk radio.
