Obama 'proud' of Hoffa after controversial comments

President Obama got a fiery warm up to his Labor Day speech, courtesy of Jimmy Hoffa, Jr, who promised to take out any of those anti-union “son of a bitches” out. Of course, the President came out and rebuked that violent rhetoric, right? Nope! Instead, Obama claimed he was “proud” of Hoffa.

Hoffa’s comments below can be seen from The Blaze Video:

Hoffa told the crowd:

“We've got to keep an eye on the battle that we face, the war on workers and you see it everywhere. It is the Tea Party and you know there's only one way to beat and win that war. The one thing about working people is we like a good fight and you know what? They've got a war, they've got a war with us and there's only going to be one winner. It's going to be the workers of Michigan and America. We're going to win that war. President Obama this is your Army. We are ready to march. Let's take these son of a bitches out and give America back to America where we belong. Thank you very much.”

When Obama took the stage, he made sure to thank a long list of labor activists including Richard Trumka, Mark Gaffney, Mary Kay Henry and (drumroll)…..Jimmy Hoffa!

“We're proud of them and we're proud of the congressional delegation,” Obama said of all involved.

“I've never seen a President do this before. Have you? I mean, that's like -- this is incredible. This is the second Labor Day in a row that we have had a big union rally, with the President of the United States,” Glenn said.

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.
