Manti Te’o in on elaborate dead girlfriend hoax?

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

It’ll be tough to top this for most bizarre story of 2013 – star Notre Dame LB Manti Te’o touched the hearts of many when he played after learning his grandmother and girlfriend died on the same day. Then the shocking twist came that his girlfriend never existed, with Te’o claiming he was victim of an elaborate hoax, but the evidence suggesting he was part of it. But the saddest part of the story is the state of the media – how in the world did they not figure this out? Glenn gives the details and his reaction to this strange story in the clip above from radio.

    How did the media not figure this one out?

    The leftist MSM is so conditioned to believing their own lies, distortions, fabrications and so much more they do not bother to investigate anything for TRUTH.

    Remember, the left depends on emotion and symbolism for their propaganda, this fit the bill of their agenda and ideology (as insane as it is) to a T.

    Glenn, you have NO evidence suggesting he knew so stop already with the conjecture.

    Just more DISTRACTING CRAP to take people’s eyes off the REAL (vital) STORIES and ISSUES.

    And isn’t it “interesting” the way they always STICK UP for their valued ATHLETES, no matter how bizarre or disgusting the JAMS those guys create for themselves!

    NOBODY “loses their granny and their online pretend-girlfriend” in the same week and makes a big deal about it in televised interviews! (unless they’ve got some kind of mental problems–and there are BIG BUCKS involved…)

    Like Eric Bolling said on Hannity, “I can think of another Hawaiian guy who’s been given a little bit of a pass…”

    I think this guy has good chance becoming the next DNC talking head.

    The best part of this story is Pat “talking down to Glenn” filling in the blanks about the details of this guys college football career…..other than that, who the heck cares…the world is on fire and I do not recognize my Country….This is about as interesting as “that guy” winning the Nobel Peace Prize……..all of it was made up.

    Teo was in on the con, at least in December when he was still talking about his dead girlfriend. It is just pathetic that a star football player did not have a real girlfriend for 3 years while in college. It could be that Teo is gay or he suffers from a mental illness. If I were he, I would have several hot girlfriends!
