Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump called conservative talk radio host Glenn Beck “boring” and “not a good guy to listen to” after the billionaire crashed Mr. Beck’s pro-Ted Cruz speech Tuesday in Nevada.

Appearing on Fox News Wednesday following his third consecutive win at the polls, Mr. Trump said he didn’t interrupt Mr. Beck’s speech on purpose.

“When I walked in, I saw he was on the podium, and there were thousands of people in the room, not too many people listening to him, he’s not a good guy to listen to, frankly, he’s boring,” Mr. Trump said in the clip obtained by The Blaze. “And so when I walked in, everybody saw me, the place went crazy and they all ran away from him, his whole crowd.”

“And he was standing up there talking to nobody, and he steamed out of the room,” Mr. Trump said. “And I didn’t do it on purpose, but I happened to be there, and we had such — I’ll bet you 90 percent of the people in that particular area were with us.”

In one video, Mr. Beck is seen speaking to a crowd when people start screaming and cheering at the sight of Mr. Trump. Mr. Beck then starts speaking louder as more and more of his audience members drop off to greet Mr. Trump. He makes one last pitch for Mr. Cruz as a defender of the U.S. Constitution before he ends his speech and starts taking pictures with supporters. The video does not show Mr. Beck “steaming” out of the room, as Mr. Trump claimed.
