Donald Trump has been on TV cable news and FOX a billion times over the years, but suddenly all his appearances are being called exclusives because while looking for publicity he says he may run for president, but that's another story. How creepy is it when Glenn Beck questions Trumps tactics on Obama's birth certificate with O'Reilly and then says it's making him uncomfortable because he's saying provocative things. BillO loves The Donald so he's happy that Trump will shake things up. Yea, with Michele Bachmann being talked up, the GOP field does need to be shaken--a bit.

Huff Po:

Trump has been in the news lately for his controversial remarks about President Obama. In a widely seen interview on Wednesday, he repeated his claims that Obama may not be a citizen of the United States, and even hinted that the president could be a Muslim.

Speaking to O'Reilly during his weekly "At Your Beck and Call" segment on Friday, Beck said that, while he respected Trump and though he could "economically fix our country," he didn't understand why Trump had been making his recent comments.

"I don't know exactly what that strategy is," he said. "I'll tell you what it is," O'Reilly said. "It's get attention."

"But that doesn't help you," Beck said. "I could walk around the streets of New York without pants and I could get attention."

He then said that Trump's birther talk, as well as his comments about China, had "made me a little uncomfortable recently." Speaking about the birth certificate he said, "He releases one that's worse than Obama's, and then he comes back and says on your program, 'he might be a Muslim too.' What does that mean, Bill?!"

Beck concluded, "The last thing the country needs is a showboat...I would hope we could get serious candidates who could shake things up by not saying provocative things, just by stating the truth of what's going on."

It looks like FOX is trying to make Beck seem not as extreme lately and this clip exemplifies their attempts. Beck can look at all the evidence and create black helicopter conspiracy theories with the best of them.
