GLENN BECK: I don't understand the Donald Trump thing. Honestly, if you ever watched my show?

BILL (HOST): O'REILLY: Yes.

BECK: Do you remember when I used to talk about how the Progressives were in the Republican Party as well? That's Donald Trump.  Remember when I said the pendulum would swing back just as far the other way and you'll have a guy who is a great showman? You have a guy who will say nothing just like "hope and change" and you will be for it? Warning? Do you remember those shows? Here he is. It's Donald Trump. 

[...]

O'Reilly: Look, Donald Trump is a unique politician. He's unique. You cannot put him in any other category. You either like him or you don't like him. 

BECK: I can put him in a category, and he fits perfectly there. He is perfectly in the Progressive politician. 

O'REILLY: I don't believe that for a second. 

BECK: Bill, you haven't believed me when I said that the Caliphate was coming, you didn't believe me when I said Barack Obama is a Marxist. You didn't believe a lot of things.  Trust me, I got this one down. Progressives I know. He is a Progressive.
