SiriusXM suspends Glenn Beck after on air Donald Trump assassination threat...

NEW YORK - Satellite radio provider SiriusXM suspended Glenn Beck's syndicated talk show this week and will take time to evaluate the program's place. The suspension comes after one of Beck's guest made comments on the show last week that were interpreted by some as an assassination threat on Donald Trump's life.

The controversial comments were made by fiction writer Brad Thor. On the show Mr. Thor suggested GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump was a danger to America, saying citizens would need to take action which may not be legal to remove Donald Trump from office saying:

"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. 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."

Many online were shocked when Glenn Beck did not immediately distance himself from Thor's comments.

SiriusXM issued the following statement:

"SiriusXM encourages a diversity of discourse and opinion on our talk programs. However, comments recently made by a guest on the independently produced Glenn Beck Program, in our judgement, 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. For that reason, we have suspended The Glenn Beck Program from our Patriot channel for the coming week and are evaluating its place in our lineup going forward. SiriusXM is committed to a spirited, robust, yet responsible political conversation and believes this action reflects those values."

Effective immediately and until further notice Glenn Beck will be replaced on the Patriot channel by David Webb. On The Blaze channel he will be replaced by Doc Thompson and Skip LaCombe. If you have something to add please leave a comment below.
