Glenn tries to justify his bizarre diet

So Glenn has been on this crazy hippie diet for a few weeks, all as part of an effort to improve his health. But on radio this morning, Glenn went through great lengths to justify his highly unusual food choices.

"This is ridiculous. People have written to me with all kinds of suggestions on what I should do on my diet and everything else, and we were having an argument this morning about, you know, Michelle Obama and getting healthy and everything else and then it started into genetic food modification and I mean, we ‑‑ it was a tough morning.  By 8:00 we had already debated the pros and cons of genetic food modification," Glenn said.

"Pat and I are both of the feeling that, you know, we are doing great damage to ourselves, to our planet long term by modifying our food."

"Stu brought up the point that because we have genetically modified food, we can grow more food for people. The counterpoint is it takes more to feed them because the nutrients aren't there," Glenn said.

"I would tend to disagree with almost everything you just said," Stu said.

"No, here's the thing.  We were having this conversation and then Julie, my assistant, brought in my one lemonade that I can have a day," Glenn countered.

"Now, I want to show you.  I brought it in and I said, oh, thank you.  And I said, could you take it around?  Could we rent a limo for this lemonade and take it around town before I consume it?  Because it really should be treated with care and be ‑‑ I mean, I shouldn't just drink it.  I should show it a good time first. Two glasses are $12," Glenn said.

"Unless you're a farmer, unless you're growing it all yourself, no human being can have truly organic food.  Because I know I'm getting scammed on some $5,000 piece of lettuce," Glenn joked about the outrageous price of true organic food.

"The best job with this is Penn and Teller on one of their shows.  They did organic food and they did a scam on green conventions where everyone was talking organic and they put two tomatoes and they had a taste test, one was organic, one wasn't.  And they labeled them incorrectly.  So every single person comes up and they are just like, oh, this organic one is so fresh, it tastes delicious.  And, of course, that was the regular one and they are like, this one, oh, this just has no taste.  It's totally bland and, of course, that was the organic one.  Then they did one where they actually cut the same banana in half and put half of it labeled as organic and half of it labeled as nonorganic and everyone chose the organic one again.  99% of that is just in your head."

"I have a good friend Ed who is in the restaurant business, he calls the organic thing a total scam.  But I don't think there's anything wrong with trying to be more natural," Pat said,

"But don't get sucked into this thing that what you're buying at the grocery store.  Because what you're buying at the grocery store, believe me when they said you've got to eat organic, Tania said, well, we do a lot of that already.  We have organic this and organic that.  No, no.  No, we don't.  You can't ‑‑ if you really have to get rid of all the toxins and everything else, you can't do it," Glenn said of the cost of organic food.

And here's Glenn being sad:

Protests following the fatal police shooting of Walter Wallace Jr quickly devolved into violence, rioting, and looting in Philadelphia, and BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer was there to document what the mainstream media won't. But while filming the carnage inside a Five Below on Tuesday, Elijah was surrounded and attacked by looters.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to detail his experience and to explain why mainstream media efforts to downplay the violence just show that independent media has never been more important.

"Unfortunately, [the attack] escalated from one person to about a dozen very quickly," Elijah explained. "I'm actually really happy to be alive. Because in that same shopping center, right there, there was a 15-year-old girl who was shot, according to reports. And I heard multiple gunshots throughout the night. Another individual is reported to have heard a gunshot as well, so we try to confirm. I watched people get pummeled beyond belief."

Glenn asked Elijah to respond to mainstream media claims that conservatives are exaggerating the looting and violence in Philadelphia.

"It's so funny to hear people that aren't there try to counter what we're reporting," Elijah replied.

In the final days before the 2020 election, President Donald Trump is gaining among black voters, particularly men, because his record of accomplishments "speaks for itself" and the "façade" that President Trump is a racist "just doesn't ring true," argued sports columnist Jason Whitlock on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday.

Jason, who recently interviewed the president at the White House for OutKick.com, shared his thoughts on why he believes many black Americans — notably celebrities such as Kanye West, Ice Cube, and 50 Cent — are breaking from the "façade" that President Trump is a "flaming racist."

"I really believe the facts are starting to speak for themselves, and that Donald Trump's record of accomplishments, particularly as it relates to African Americans, speaks for itself," Jason told Glenn. "He actually has a record to stand on, unlike even Barack Obama. When [Obama] was president, I don't think he had much of a record to stand on, in terms of, 'Hey, what did he actually deliver for African Americans?' President Trump has things he can stand on and, you know, beyond that I think black people understand when he starts talking about black unemployment rate. And America's unemployment rate. And then, when you add in for black men, the façade we've been putting on [President Trump] … you know, this whole thing that he's some flaming racist, it just doesn't ring true."

Jason suggested that Trump's fearlessness, unabashed masculinity, and record of keeping his promises resonates with men in the black community. He also weighed in on how media and social media's bias plays a huge role in convincing people to hate President Trump while ignoring Antifa and others on the Left.

"I keep explaining to people, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, they're some of the most secular places on earth. And we've reduced everyone to a tweet, that we disagree with," he added.

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:
