MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough on Monday blasted Glenn Beck for his support of Sen. [crscore]Ted Cruz[/crscore].

“If I were Glenn Beck,” Scarborough said on “Morning Joe,” “I’d be more concerned about my collapsing TV empire than campaigning [for Cruz].”

While Beck has been out campaigning for Cruz, Scarborough said, “he kept missing shows and took his eye off the ball.” (RELATED: Glenn Beck: My Campaigning With Cruz Didn’t Cause Layoffs At The Blaze [AUDIO])

“Anyway, that didn’t work out well,” Scarborough said, referring to Beck’s campaigning, “Did you hear about that? [Beck] fired, like, I heard 60 people and got rid of his TV…all of his TV operations and a lot of the people said he was so obsessed, campaigning for Ted Cruz that he kept missing shows and took his eye off the ball.”

Panelist Mike Barnicle added, “Well, he’s backed the wrong guy.”

Agreeing, Scarbrough replied, “He has. I mean, at least when I miss shows, I’ve got an excuse. I’m sleeping. It’s like I’m not going out campaigning for Ted Cruz.”

Last week during his show, Beck said he lost $500,000 campaigning for Cruz. During that same week, TheBlaze canned dozens of staffers. (RELATED: Glenn Beck Is Officially Bat S**t Crazy — WATCH Him Rub Cheetos All Over His Face [VIDEO])
