Media reacts to Romney’s ‘gaffe-tastic’ overseas trip

In light of Mitt Romney’s overseas tour the media has taken to pointing out the ‘gaffe-tastic’ nature of Romney’s trip, while reminding us that whenever President Obama goes overseas he is ‘gaffe-free’ and ‘picture-perfect.’

“Let’s move on to our 1984 world where two plus two equals five kind of ‑‑ kind of, you know, media formula, where nothing makes sense anymore,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “Let's go to Mitt Romney, his overseas trip, has been described by the press as gaffe‑tastic, gaffe‑filled, and his mouth runneth over.  Hmmm. Of course, when Barack Obama went overseas and really ever since, he was gaffe‑free and picture‑perfect.”

So let’s take a look at some of the horrors that show just how embarrassing Romney’s trip was.

For starters, he had the nerve to suggest that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.

“Hey, Jeffy, according to the map, according to the location of the capital according to the location of the prime minister's office, according to the location of all political offices, where would the capital of Israel be,” Glenn asked. “It’s like saying, ‘I'm not going to tell you where the capital of the United States is.’”

And we can’t forget about how embarrassing it was when Romney explained how cultural differences between Israel and Palestine could be a factor in why Israel’s economy is so much stronger than Palestine.

“He mentioned their respective GDPs as an example. Romney cited Israel's per capita GDP at $21,000, Palestine's at 10,000.  It's actually more like 31,000 to 1500. So it's not two times the GDP. It's closer to 30 times, far more dramatic than even he indicated. If you were talking about that's his gaffe, okay, I'd be with you. But that's not what they were doing,” Glenn said.

Let us not forget how President Obama and his administration have handled questions about Israel situation as of late. No one with half a brain would call it picture-perfect. One day the President comes out in front of the AIPAC and says that Israel’s security is “sacrosanct,” and Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel. The next day he says:

PRESIDENT OBAMA:  This was an example where we had some poor phrasing in the speech and we immediately tried to correct the interpretation that was given.  The point we were simply making was is that we don't want barbed wire running through Jerusalem similar to the way it was prior to the '67 war. We believe the borders of Israel and Palestine should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps. So that secure and recognized borders are established for both states.

“What? You don't think you is... was... make any sense. But don't worry, none of that is gaffe‑tastic, gaffe‑filled, gaffe‑alicious. It's sheer unadulterated perfection personified,” Glenn joked.

The bias is bordering on laughable at this point and further proves that the media is becoming more and more obsolete.

“The media is irritating but irrelevant. It's like a little gnat. After a while that's really irritating.  But here's what happens. Welcome to GBTV. Welcome to talk radio. Welcome to the Internet. Welcome to the 9/12 project. Welcome to the Tea Party. Welcome to Freedom Works. Welcome to America,” Glenn concluded.

“We are the ultimate flyswatter. They're irrelevant. Let them rant and rave. Let them dig their own grave. This November Americans will pick the man who best represents American principles and values.”

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
