This happened: 51 year old actor marries 16 year old country star

A 16 year-old aspiring country star has married a 51 year-old actor – nothing wrong with that, right?

Pat played the audio of a reporter saying, ‘Vast age difference is extremely controversial but [they’re] very much in love and want to get the message out there that true love can be ageless. But just what did the 16 year old parents have to say? Stodden's mother not only gave the signature of approval in Vegas, they told Radar Online they are, quote, totally supportive of this marriage. She defended her daughter against critics' disapproval of the couple's 35 year age difference. Doug is a wonderful man and we love him. Courtney was a virgin when she married Doug. She is a good Christian girl. They are very much in love and we are so supportive of this. Though Stodden maybe satisfied with her parents' approval, some of the public is not. “

“May I just say that that's the creepiest thing I've ever heard,” Glenn said.

What would the guys do if their daughter was marrying a 51-year old when she was 16?

“If that 51 year old dude shows up at my house with my 16 year old daughter, I ask him politely to beat it and stay beaten, or I beat him to death,” Pat said.

“My daughter comes home with a 51 year old man and I am, you pervert. Get away from my daughter, you pervert. What is it exactly? This is the conversation I have. What is it exactly you and my daughter have in common?” Glenn said.

“We watch Veggie Tales and then read the scriptures every night,” Pat joked – mocking their answers.

“Honestly, you know, 99% of these times these things don't work out but I think you can have relationships with wide age spreads and I don't feel bad about that. I do think that there is some truth in that,” Stu chimed in. “But at 16 it’s your parents choice.”

What would Jeffy do if one of his daughters did this? Introduce them to his son, University of Missouri offensive lineman Elvis Fisher. “I introduce the man to my older son, her older brother, who's 6' 5," 300 pounds and say, say hello to her brother.”

And Sarah? “ I'd probably be puking in the toilet,” she said.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
