New Tone? Olbermann wishes S.E. Cupp was never born

Yesterday, former MSNBC host Keith Olbermann made a transparent bid for relevancy by making some controversial comments about conservative commentator and Insider Extreme host S.E. Cupp. Olbermann wrote that S.E. Cupp is “the perfect demonstration of the necessity of the work Planned Parenthood does”. While Glenn was off radio for a doctor’s appointment, Pat and Stu interviewed S.E. about Olbermann’s Twitter remarks on radio this morning.

The Blaze has been covering Olbermann’s remarks. You can read their story here.

Stu said, “[Olbermann’s] making right now millions and millions of dollars to do nothing. I mean, the guy was paid out on his contract. He's got millions and millions of dollars literally to sit at home.”

“[NBC] would rather just not have him at the office and they are paying him millions of dollars to do so. And he's sitting there obsessively tweeting back to individual people and it's just begging for attention,” Stu added.

While Glenn is currently undergoing his own, gradual transition off of FOX News, Stu hoped “we don’t become this desperate.”

Pat was optimistic that their show wouldn’t sink to the same despicable level of Keith Olbermann. “ I can't imagine ever being as desperate as Keith Olbermann to be saying, ‘Yeah, it would be nice, wouldn't it, if all Democrats were aborted.  That would be great if no Democrats existed on this planet.’”

The guys then brought on S.E. Cupp to talk about the controversial statements Olbermann made about her.

“Someone alerted me to [the remarks].  I'm traveling.  I'm in Ohio. And so I was not regularly checking for Keith Olbermann tweets yesterday. But someone alerted me to it and I actually, I mean, it's weird because I don't recall ever turning down one of his sexual advances.  So I don't know what his beef with me is,” she joked.

“And I can joke. You have to joke about this kind of stuff, you know, in this business,” she said.

But Cupp certainly didn’t find his remarks to be funny at all. While she is used to getting criticism for her beliefs, “when you get death threats and hate mail, you never get used to hearing that someone wishes you were dead.”

“It never becomes something you just say, oh, no big deal.  It just doesn't, it doesn't get that way.”

“But the nice way, the nice way to look at this, S. E., is that not that he wanted you dead,” Pat joked. “Just that he never wanted you to exist in the first place.”

Stu asked what S.E. felt about the implication that her stance on Planned Parenthood made her anti-women.

“There's so much hypocrisy in here,” S.E. said.  For one, abortion is incredibly important and serious and sensitive issue to many women on both sides of the issue. And to use it as a cheap punch line I think really undermines the seriousness of the topic.”

“On another level, of course, no one is going to be surprised to learn that Keith Olbermann is incredibly misogynistic and has huge problems with women,” she added.

“And then, of course, lastly, to sort of invoke a call for tolerance and then spew that kind of bile in a public forum, I just, I can't imagine how his employer is going to defend him on that.  I mean, it's no wonder he's been fired from every single job he's had,” she said.

“This is not a one‑time incident with him getting booted from MSNBC,” Stu said. Stu also pointed out that Olbermann had pretty good ratings compared to the rest of MSNBC, but he was “hated by everyone who’s ever worked with him.”

S.E. said, “I really think it speaks to the kind of person he is, his character.  That's a line that I would imagine is very difficult for most people to cross.  He seems to do it alacrity and so regularly and so flippantly that I can't even imagine what goes on in his mind, what's happening in there.”

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
