Washington (CNN)Talk about a dust-up!
Conservative activist and Ted Cruz ally Glenn Beck mocked Donald Trump on Friday by rubbing his face in Cheetos dust to emulate the Republican front-runner.
“After seeing Donald Trump on television, we thought if you wore the swim goggles and you stuck your face in Cheetos — crushed Cheetos — that you would look just like Donald Trump in the end,” Beck said Friday on his radio show, “The Glenn Beck Program.”
Beck crushed several flavors of Cheetos — including Flamin’ Hot and Crunchy Cheddar Jalapeo — and continually asked if he looked like Trump.
“You are almost a twin, a doppleganger, if you will,” co-host Pat Gray said, according to a YouTube video posted by Right Wing Watch.
“You know, it does look like Donald Trump dips his face in Cheetos dust,” co-host Steve Burguiere added.
Beck attacked Trump repeatedly in January when he endorsed Cruz and said the Republican Party needs to elect a candidate with principles.
“It’s not somebody who’s got a lot of strip clubs and casinos. It’s a guy who stands on his principles relentlessly,” Beck said at the time.
He also said Trump needed to “apologize” to the conservative movement for being arrogant, self-centered and for clashing with the tea party.
“The man owes America an apology, and he should ask conservatives in America for forgiveness,” Beck said.
