While Glenn Beck has since insisted that his murder threat Friday was actually directed at his co-host, the Secret Service appears to be taking the threat seriously and is unwilling to leave the matter up to chance, CBS11 reports.
The radio show exchange started after Beck talked about filling the shoes of Trump’s rivals, at which point his co-host Stu Burguiere joked, “Was it gigantic shoes?”
“If I was close enough and I had a knife. Really. I mean the stabbing just wouldn’t stop,” Beck said in response.
