Did CNN's Erin Burnett ask the most outrageous question ever?

We have grown accustomed to hearing downright shocking questions from the media, but a question from CNN’s Erin Burnett just might take the cake for the most outrageous question ever asked.

“I have to tell you, have we not heard incredible questions from reporters in America,” Glenn asked on radio this morning. “We've heard incredible incompetence. We've heard it all. I think we have a winner now for the most crazy, outrageous, crazy question I've ever heard.”

News Busters first reported that during an interview with former First Lady Laura Bush about the George W. Bush Institute's Women's Initiative Fellowship Program, Burnett asked if it is time for the United States to “accept” anti-Americanism and anti-Semitism in order “to make change.”

Burnett’s question follows an awkward week for the Obama administration, in which the State Department had to rescind its Women of Courage Award because the intended recipient, an Egyptian woman named Samir Ibrahim, was found to have tweeted some remarkably offensive comments about the United States and Jewish people.

“She's never struck me as psycho,” Glenn said of Burnett. “She never struck me as an oddball. She's just a journalist. I want you to listen this question.”

BURNETT: An Egyptian woman, her name's Samir Ibraham, and she's done a lot of things, courageous things. She's also been criticized for sending tweets that are anti-Semitic, anti-American. Does the U.S. need to accept that when we want to make change. You have to support people that do those things - financially in term of awards, in terms of all these things - because it pays off in the end? Is that a trade-off we have to make?

BUSH: No, I don't think so, not necessarily. But I do think it's really important that we do support women in any way we can in the U.S.

“That's amazing,” Glenn said. “Should America just accept the anti-Semitic views, the anti-American views in order to affect change?”

While Stu was quick to point out that Burnett was simply stating a White House policy that forces us to ignore defamatory or inflammatory remarks by people like Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi or other world leaders for the sake of diplomacy, Glenn was still skeptical.

“I no longer a believer in our foreign policy. It does not work. It does not work to say that the enemy of my enemy is my friend. It doesn't work,” Glenn said. “You have to be very clear, and very clear on principles. Otherwise you confuse the world, and you become like everybody else.”

“With that being said there is a difference between Morsi, who is a leader of state who you have to sit down and be in the same room with occasionally, and giving an award to somebody who has no power,” he continued. “You're holding them up as an example for people to model themselves after. So there's a huge difference.”

“I think the correct answer is: You don't have to put up with it anywhere,” Stu added. “The administration currently deals with countries this way, and it doesn't seem to have a positive effect. They continue to be more and more anti-Israel, and anti-America no matter how many things they ignore.”

As Stu explained, given the obvious lack of historical success, why would Burnett think shrugging off blatantly offensive remarks about America and its allies for the sake of handing out an award help America’s foreign policy?

“What a dumb question,” Pat said. “Dangerous and dumb.”

“If we prop people up who are anti-Semitic and have anti-American views, how do the Jews and Americans survive,” Glenn asked. “That means you're saying, you have a rightful place at the table. And by the time that they have their rightful place at the table, if we haven't dismissed those ideas, then those ideas have a real place at the table.”

Ultimately, Glenn struggled to understand why someone like Burnett would even ask a question of this nature. “She's not a crazy member of the press,” he said. “This shows how far our press is off base and off target. That is a truly frightening question coming from a relatively normal person – a person you've watched a thousand times at CNN. Well, it’s CNN, so someone you’ve watched eight times on TV, and you've never thought she's crazy!”

Bill O'Reilly joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday for his weekly take on the 2020 presidential race.

O'Reilly emphasized what a dangerous candidate socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) really is, and how the media is working to mislead voters by depicting other Democratic candidates, such as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as "moderate."

"The Democratic Party has been hijacked -- and this is no breaking news -- by the progressive left. Which is now being enabled by the national media," said O'Reilly.

"Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man. In any sane time, media time, that would be clear to everybody. But it's not," he added. "It's like, 'Oh, there's uncle Bernie and he just wants to give stuff away. What a great guy.' [He's] not a great guy, all right? He's a totalitarian. He'll take your freedom, in every area, away. Every area. There isn't one area, that Bernie Sanders wouldn't intrude upon, in your personal freedom. Yet, that's not reported. You don't know it unless you pay attention. It's all a bunch of dishonest blather that has obliterated the so-called moderate Democrat. And there are millions of those people. They don't know what to do because they have no voice in the media."

Glenn pointed out that the media has been "trying to make Pete Buttigieg into a moderate" ever since his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses last week.

"So, Pete Buttigieg: Harvard grad. Rhodes Scholar. Brilliant man, he is brilliant. Great speaker. Almost as good as Beck and I. Not quite, but almost," O'Reilly said. "He's only 38, all right? So, the guy goes out and runs for president after being the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for eight years, and almost destroying that city. The city is in chaos, yet he's re-elected with 80% of the vote the second time. That's what a good BS'er Pete Buttigieg is.

The two went on to break down Buttegieg's radical policy plans on immigration, abortion, gun control, and more.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, have uncovered new evidence that suggests the coronavirus death toll numbers coming from China are grossly inaccurate.

After vetting several deep-fake videos circulating on social media, Jason unearthed shocking whistleblower-videos released by citizens of the communist state that show entire warehouses filled with body bags, along with other atrocities.

Jason and Glenn break down the real numbers and discuss the possibilities of the outbreak coming to America. Watch the video below for more details:

Former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg has surged in the polls in the past month.

With former Vice President Joe Biden dropping below far-left presidential candidates such as the unapologetically socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vt.), and the almost equally extremist Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass), Democratic voters seeking a more moderate alternative are setting their sights on Mayor Pete.

But are Buttigieg's policies actually moderate? Not even close, Glenn Beck said Thursday on the radio program.

"[Pete Buttigieg] wants people to see him as a moderate. The mayor of a Midwest city in a red state ... and he's going for the middle, even though he is not a moderate candidate in any way," said Glenn.

Here are just a few example of where Buttigieg stands on the issues:

  • Supports late-term, partial-birth abortion
  • Eliminate the Electoral College
  • Buyback program for assault weapons
  • Raise the federal minimum wage to $15/hour
  • Expand Medicare
  • Decriminalize illegal immigration
  • Pay for infrastructure through changing taxes on corporations, the wealthy
  • Study reparations
  • Legalize marijuana
  • Increase existing taxes on upper-income Americans
  • Cancel some student debt
  • Don't use tariffs to pressure countries

An official at the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations' health agency, has issued a warning, calling the coronavirus "the worst enemy you can imagine" and more of a threat than "any terrorist attack," during a media briefing on Tuesday.

Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO's director general, said that a vaccine for the coronavirus will likely take 18 months to develop. The virus has reportedly killed hundreds and infected tens of thousands of people, primarily in China.

"To be honest, a virus is more powerful in creating political, social and economic upheaval than any terrorist attack. It's the worst enemy you can imagine," added Ghebreyesus.

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck noted that the same agency in charge of developing this life-saving vaccine, has taken the time to officially change the disease's name to COVID-19, citing the concern of "stigmatizing" any specific geographical location, individual, or group of people.
