The NBA is now promoting... Obamacare?

If you were already annoyed when LeBron colluded with other superstars in the NBA to form a championship caliber team, the latest news coming out of the NBA will drive you batty. According to Politico, the White House is actively looking to secure a partnership with the NBA in order to promote… Obamacare.

“If you needed a reason to dislike LeBron James, here's reason number 4,612 to not like LeBron James, and this one is way beyond LeBron James,” Glenn joked on radio this morning.

Politico reported:

The Obama administration has reached out to the NBA about a potential marketing partnership to promote the health law, POLITICO has learned.

The news, revealed recently by Massachusetts officials who have been in contact with the administration, offers a glimpse at how President Barack Obama’s team plans to push the new coverage options to a public that largely has been clueless about the new health insurance options.

The NBA declined to comment. A spokesman said, “We have nothing to announce at this time.”

“I say they have to decline. You have to decline,” Pat said. “You can't alienate more than half your fan base.”

Glenn, however, wasn’t quite so sure.

“Okay. We have the word ‘clueless’ in that story, and we also have the word ‘healthcare’, keyword, ’law’,” Glenn said. “Here's what's going to happen. They're going to make the case: Look, it is the law. It's the law. It's the law of the land. The debate is over. It's already the law of the land, and… it doesn't matter if you're for or against it. We're educating. We're educating people on how to access it because they need to have the information because it's the law.”

Although people may disagree with Obamacare as a law, at the end of the day, it is the law of the land. This allows the NBA to look at the partnership as a public awareness campaign, instead of something political.

“This isn't debating about whether we should start it or anything else,” Glenn continued. “We're saying the law has changed and you don't know how to access healthcare. And you're helping people. I mean, the NBA, we care so deeply about people, we have to help people all the time and so we have to help people. And there are a lot of people who don't even have healthcare now, and others who can no longer afford their healthcare… Here's the thing: We're helping people.”

“I mean, that's how they will justify it in their minds,” Pat agreed. But “you're going to piss off a lot of people.”

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.
