VIDEO: Glenn Beck Reveals ‘His Guy’ in the Presidential Race; Trump is LIVID!

The Blaze founder, bestselling author, and leading radio talk show host Glenn Beck appeared on FOX News’ The Kelly File with Megyn Kelly to discuss today’s mistrial in the Freddie Gray case as well as to weigh in on the 2016 presidential race.

Beck believes that ultimately, the race will come down between Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and “possibly” Chris Christie. He reminded viewers that he has believed for roughly a year and a half that the Republican Party is going the way of the Whig Party, which the GOP replaced, especially if Trump is the GOP nominee.

Toward the end of the interview (5:25 mark in video below), Kelly asks Beck who he likes in the 2016 presidential race.

“Ted Cruz,” Beck answered with absolutely no hesitation. “He’s my guy. I like Ted Cruz a lot.”

Beck gave a lukewarm response to Marco Rubio, calling him someone he could vote for although he has major differences on some issues with him. He also said he likes Rand Paul “an awful lot.”

Donald Trump must have been watching The Kelly File on Wednesday, as he took to Twitter to blast Glenn Beck with his usual vitriol. Trump claimed that Beck “got fired like a dog by FOX [News],” and that The Blaze, one of the top conservative news and commentary sites on the internet is “failing.” Trump then called the influential Beck “irrelevant.”

Beck referred to Chris Christie as a “progressive” who “likes big government” and called Trump a “giant progressive,” so much so that he thinks if it comes down to being between the bombastic billionaire and Hillary Clinton, he may not even vote.

“I can’t vote for a progressive. I can’t vote for Hillary and I can’t vote for him [Trump],” Beck announced.

“In the end, I think it’s Cruz and Trump,” Glenn Beck predicted.
