Luke Bullock has “liked” several Facebook posts with extremely anti-Trump rhetoric. In March 2016, Bullock liked that Glenn Beck posted an article titled “How and Why the Conservative Media Sold Its Soul To Facilitate Trump’s Nomination,” calling Trump’s GOP primary win “about as unjust and destructive as the OJ Simpson verdict.”

Luke Bullock liked a March 2016 Glenn Beck post, where Beck shared a Mediaite article, calling it the “bravest expose I have read” and “100% true.” The piece, titled “How and Why the Conservative Media Sold Its Soul To Facilitate Trump’s Nomination,” was from a commentator who’d “written many times on this outlet about the dangers of Donald Trump’s candidacy.” The commentator wrote that the media landscape “set up a perfect storm… for ‘Trumpsanity’ to overtake” the GOP primary and cause “a result about as unjust and destructive as the OJ Simpson verdict.” [Luke Bullock like of Glenn Beck Facebook post, 03/17/16, and John Ziegler, “How and Why the Conservative Media Sold Its Soul To Facilitate Trump’s Nomination,” Mediaite, 03/15/16]

Luke Bullock “liked” an October 2016 Facebook post asking fellow conservatives why they were still supporting Donald Trump, calling him “clearly misogynistic, absolutely and completely delusional-ly narcissistic,” and questions why conservatives thought Trump would “suddenly morph into someone with any integrity.”

Luke Bullock liked an October 2016 Facebook post that asked conservatives how they were defending Donald Trump, saying “It’s as though because he is the Republican nominee we are all holding on to some form of hope that he will turn things around… Like he’ll suddenly morph into someone with any integrity. At what cost?? What makes you think that this man who is clearly misogynistic, absolutely and completely delusional-ly narcissistic, will do ANYTHING for us?” It ended, “It’s time to throw in the towel and stop clamoring for reasons to be behind this guy. At some point our conscience has to be louder than the fear of the alternative.” [Luke Bullock like of Rachel Badders Whyte Facebook post, 10/11/16]

Luke Bullock liked a Facebook post from May 2016 with a piece from AddictingInfo.org titled “Bush’s Secretary Of Defense Says Trump Has No F*cking Idea What He’s Talking About,” that quoted Defense Secretary Robert Gates suggesting that Americans electing Donald Trump “would be a mistake.”
