Glenn Beck on Notre Dame blaze: ‘This is their World Trade Center moment’
One firefighter was injured but no one else was hurt in the fire, according to Reuters.
TheBlaze was founded by Beck, a former Fox News host, in 2011 not long after parting ways with the network, while CRTV was founded in 2014 by current Fox News host Mark Levin, who also hosts a nationally syndicated radio program.
Beck’s comments have resulted in blowback on Twitter, resulting in him trending on the platform on Tuesday:

Glenn Beck is trying start a conspiracy theory that the Notre Dame fire might have been started “by Islamists” even though the Paris prosecutor’s office has ruled out arson and possible terror-related motives pic.twitter.com/LVljln5N5K

Any time Glenn Beck is trending, you know the world is about to become a much stupider place.

I guess it doesn’t matter to Glenn Beck that Masjid Al-Aqsa, the THIRD most holiest building to Muslims, was on fire the same time as Notre Dame. But, yeah, Islamists ruin everything.
