Glenn strangely upset Stu wants to spend time with new baby, Stu issues response

Stu and his wife Lisa welcomed their 2nd child into the world over the weekend. The happy couple announced the arrival of Ainslee Faith Burguiere, their first daughter, on Saturday the 9th. Like most good husbands and family men, Stu is taking some time off to assist his recovering wife and spend his first ever week with a daughter -- with his daughter. Strangely, Glenn took issue with this choice.

"Stu had a baby girl over the weekend and we're all happy for them," Glenn said this morning. But despite the praise for the new baby, Glenn didn't understand why Stu couldn't make it into work when the baby was born on Saturday.

"He is an example of everything that's wrong with this country right now," Glenn said. "You want to take a day off. Okay. A week?"

Pat joined in on the criticism, "I have six kids. You have four. Jeffy, you have three? Have any of us taken more than the day of the birth ever?"

Glenn claimed that when Jeffy's wife gave birth to their child at six in the morning, Jeffy was in his producer's seat that same day at nine when the radio show started.

"She went back to sleep, the kid was fine," Jeffy said.

This isn't the first time Stu has shown an incredible lack of dedication to his job. In 2011, Stu stayed home during Restoring Courage because he was too scared to go to Israel for the event. Meanwhile, Glenn was hospitalized and told to stay in bed for three days, but Glenn took off a few hours later because he had an event to do.

Stu also takes off every year for the Superbowl, leaving Glenn, Pat, and Jeffy to scramble in attempt to put on a decent show without their Executive Producer.

Sources close to Stu have noticed him complaining about an increasingly busy schedule. He co-hosts and produces five hours of live television and radio every weekday, routinely fills in for Glenn's TV show, and has created a new show called "The Wonderful World of Stu".

Despite Glenn and Pat's claims to be dedicated to work at the expense of their family, many anonymous sources within Mercury and TheBlaze team have pointed out some pretty stunning hypocrisy on their part. Pat will be taking off from "Pat & Stu" Thursday and Friday to attend his daughter's wedding in Salt Lake City. Glenn will also be attending the wedding and will have a fill-in host for his Friday television show as a result.

One employee who wished to remain anonymous told GlennBeck.com, "The hypocrisy is amazing."

In response to the accusations, a spokesperson for Stu Burguiere issued the following statement exclusively to GlennBeck.com:

Like Glenn Beck when anyone says anything he doesn't like, Mr. Burguiere has decided to make a pointless announcement about his future response to add needless and manufactured drama for no reason that a rational person can calculate. Therefore Mr. Burguiere will respond upon his return Monday.

In the meantime, who would you choose to spend your time with?

These guys?

Or this angel?

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.
