GLENN BECK: When you have a guy who is angry and then has an enemies list and starts just to take people down over and over and over again if you disagree with him, he destroys you. If that's the mood of the country, we're in more trouble than I thought.

CHRIS CUOMO (HOST): Well, here's the thing. Is there a little bit of reap what you sow in some of this with the GOP? That engendering an oppositional mode towards government and ratcheting up negativity as a mainline discourse, you wound up somewhat birthing Donald Trump? And now all, some of those people who were angry about what was going on and telling people to be angry, now they've got somebody who is harnessing the power of exactly that. And you're disappointed.

BECK: Well I'm not disappointed. I warned against this.You go back to my shows on Fox and I warned the progressive movement, and that's what this is. Donald Trump is a progressive, make no mistake.
