MSNBC shocked at Biden/Trump comparison

It’s no secret that Joe Biden has made a habit of putting his foot in his mouth with some pretty newsworthy gaffes. It is also no secret that Donald Trump has made some head scratching claims. So when a guest on MSNBC made an argument comparing the toll Biden’s gaffes have had on President Obama to the potential harm Trump could do on the campaign trail for Mitt Romney, the analysis didn’t seem too farfetched. Or so some would think.

Well, MSNBC anchor Thomas Roberts took great offense to the former Rick Santorum spokesman Hogan Gidley's comments, and the exchange that ensued was nothing short of hilarious:

GUEST:  Earlier on one of the shows on MSNBC one of your anchors actually said how could Mitt Romney stand next to a guy who could embarrass himself and Barack Obama could be embarrassed by a guy he made vice president.  And people who support do, and say.  This is one of these deals there are lots of people that support President Obama.

ROBERTS:  You're going to compare Joe Biden one of this country's most dignified, and greatest political leaders that can cross getting to both sides of the aisle, and compare him to a Donald Trump? You really want to say that.

GUEST:  I'm not comparing him to Donald Trump.

ROBERTS: You would compare him to the gaffe-tasticness of Donald Trump?

GUEST: No, you know someone on your network said they couldn’t believe that Mitt Romney would put Trump next to him because he could embarrass him at any moment…

ROBERTS:  You just said that the vice president is just as prone to embarrass the President

GUEST:  He has embarrassed the President on many occasions. This is all very, very silly stuff.  I mean, let's get focused on the issues here. You can't be held responsible for what people who support you say or do…

ROBERTS:  It’s another thing to thrust yourself onto the nation stage with them, appear with them what's going to be millions of cash grab in Vegas, and shouldn't you speak up or try to put an end to all of this as you call nonsense…

While Romney’s newfound friendship with Trump is raising some eyebrows from conservatives, Robert’s argument is remarkably hypocritical when it is known that the President spends time with communists, anarchists, and socialists.

“This is one of the most amazing exchanges I've ever heard,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “Everybody is all up in arms with Romney and Donald Trump. I'm kind of up in arms with Donald Trump. I wonder why he's surrounding himself with Donald Trump and people like Newt Gingrich, who is the last person you should be surrounded with. Donald Trump – he’s great entrepreneur but really?”

“I'm not saying he's not a sincere guy,” Glenn continued. “But he's Donald Trump for the love of Pete. I don't think that people on the left want to cast stones about who the President or who a presidential candidate surrounds himself with.”

“Remember, this guy [President Obama] is surrounding himself with communists and anarchists, socialists and Joe Biden. I left that one for last. It should have been the first. Joe Biden. You think Donald Trump's hair is bad. Have you looked at Joe Biden's hair? You think he says crazy things. Donald Trump? Have you listened to Joe Biden?”

Just in case you need further evidence, Glenn played a few of Biden’s most “gaffe-tastic” moments, in which Biden proves he cannot spell or count – apparently ‘jobs’ is a three letter word – and he mistakes doctors with soft drinks. Remember the ‘Dr. Pepper’ comment?

“So I think he's fantastic,” Glenn concluded in relation to the Vice President. “And you can't compare him to Donald Trump… He's far worse than Donald Trump.”

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."
