Glenn Beck suspended by SiriusXM

Glenn Beck's syndicated radio show will not be there on SiriusXM for the rest of the week after a guest reportedly hinted that Donald Trump, if elected president, could be assassinated.

Glenn Beck suspended by SiriusXM

SiriusXM announced Tuesday that "The Glenn Beck Program" will be suspended from the Patriot Channel "for the coming week," and that the company is "evaluating its place in our lineup going forward."

"SiriusXM encourages a diversity of discourse and opinion on our talk programs," the company said in a statement. "However, comments recently made by a guest on the independently produced Glenn Beck Program, in our judgment, may be reasonably construed by some to have been advocating harm against an individual currently running for office, which we cannot and will not condone."

"The Glenn Beck Program" is a very popular shows in conservative talk radio and is heard on more than 400 stations across the country. The program's syndicator, Premiere Networks, said Tuesday it has "no plans to suspend Glenn Beck."

The controversial comment was made last week during an interview Beck conducted with the fiction author and conservative commentator Brad Thor. Discussing a potential Trump presidency, Thor said that impeachment would likely be off the table.

"If Congress won't remove him from office, what patriot will step up and do that if, if, he oversteps his mandate as president, his constitutional-granted authority, I should say, as president," Thor said.

"If he oversteps that, how do we get him out of office? And I don't think there is a legal means available. I think it will be a terrible, terrible position the American people will be in to get Trump out of office because you won't be able to do it through Congress."
