Conservative icon Glenn Beck gave a definitive answer as to whether he would support Donald Trump if he locked up the Republican presidential nomination.

In an exchange with Sean Hannity last week, Beck said he was “trying to understand how conservatives can look at Donald Trump’s record, which he himself identifies more as a Democrat than as a conservative or Republican, and say ‘that’s our guy.’” Added Beck: “His record is horrendous when it comes to conservative principles.”
Appearing on CNN Tonight with Don Lemon Monday, Lemon asked Beck, “If Donald Trump is the nominee, will you support him?”
“No. I’m not a Republican,” Beck immediately replied. “I don’t care what happens to the Republican Party. I am a constitutionalist.”
Trump leads a RealClearPolitics average of polls among GOP presidential candidates with 22 percent, leading his closest contender, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who finished with 10.7 percent.
Lemon and Beck also discussed the possibility of Vice President Joe Biden entering the Democratic presidential primary as an alternative to Hillary Clinton. “Joe Biden has a long track record in politics, he’s great on foreign policy, he’s a says-it-like-it-is guy,” Lemon contended, drawing instant dissent from Beck.
“You cannot tell me he wouldn’t be the laughing stock of the world,” Beck said. “Joe Biden? That’s a joke. And all of us know, that’s a joke.”
