Who says that? Obama goes off the rails in Africa

In the midst of his whirlwind $100 million tour of Africa, President Obama someone managed to make time (once again) to apologize for America’s past mistakes and even flex his authoritarian muscle when referring to ‘his press.’

“The president said some amazing things, amazing things over in Africa, and I don't know how he's getting away with it,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “When he went over to Africa, did anybody see some of the things that he actually said?”

During an event in which President Obama pledged $7 billion in support for energy development in sub-Saharan Africa, he offered this curious warning:

OBAMA: When we look at what other countries are doing in Africa, I think our only advice is make sure it’s a good deal for Africa. If somebody says they want to come build something here, are they hiring African workers? If somebody says that they want to help you develop your natural resources, how much of the money is staying in Africa? ... Don’t just assume that folks come here and they’re automatically benefiting Africans. And that includes the United States. Ask questions in terms of what we do.

“So he's telling people, ‘You can't even trust us,’” Glenn said. “Which, that's the most accurate thing he has said. But what president says that? ‘Don't even trust us.’”

Meanwhile, during an event with Senegalese President Macky Sall, President Obama bizarrely referred to the U.S. reporters as “my press.” This occurred after President Obama encouraged reporters to “behave yourselves” during a Saturday photo-op with South African President Jacob Zuma.

OBAMA: This is much more elegant than the White House pressroom. It's a big improvement… Sometimes my press — I notice yours just ask one question. We try to fit in three or four or five questions in there.

Interestingly, Pat explained that there is no audio or video to be found from that particular event – not “a single sound bite of that” Pat said.

“Excuse me? My press just better behave,” Glenn said disgusted. “And you see that they are behaving because you're not seeing that story anywhere. Since when does a president say something like that with cameras rolling and you don't have it reported anywhere?”

We have grown accustomed to President Obama receiving a pass from the press, but its not like anybody thinks President Obama is a god or has god-like powers or something. Oh, wait…

EVAN THOMAS: I mean, in a way Obama's standing above the country – above the world, he's sort of God.

Thomas, who is an editor at Newsweek, made the statement during a June appearance on MSNBC’s Hardball with Chris Matthews.

One has to wonder if Thomas would still express the same sentiments in the wake of President Obama’s condescending tone with the press. Sadly, the answer is probably yes.

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.
