Glenn debates Pat & Stu on 49ers quarterback controversy

If you're a fan of Glenn's, it's no secret that he's not exactly a "guy's guy" when it comes to sports. Honestly, he may not know the difference between a touchdown, home run, field goal, birdie or free throw — so it’s always a dicey situation when he weighs in on sports talk. And this morning when the recent controversy around San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick came up, it wasn't pretty.

You see, over the weekend, the NFL quarterback was photographed wearing the hat of an opposing team: the Miami Dolphins. According to Pat, the $7 million dollars the 49ers are paying him should buy "a little bit of loyalty". The fans are apparently hacked off, and Kaepernick doesn't see what the big deal is…and neither does Glenn.

Glenn noted that 'it's not like he gave the playbook to a competing team.'

"It would be like you wearing a fascism t-shirt or a communism hat," Stu responded.

"Or MSNBC. Would you wear an MSNBC cap?" Pat asked.

The obvious answer was 'no'. Glenn despises those things, which is what Stu explained should be happening in football, before making Glenn listen to ESPN's Colin Cowher's rant on Kaepernick.

"49er quarterback Colin Kaepernick wore a Miami Dolphins hat this weekend.  Social media this weekend, hey, look at me, I'm wearing a Dolphins hat.  Fans in San Francisco a little ticked off.  Kaepernick, the on‑field CEO of the team. I'm going to wear it regardless of what you fans think.  Ridiculous.  Y'all must be bored.  No, Kaepernick, you‑all must be really immature.  Because we need borders in life.  They're really important.  Any of you have kids? Ever tell them don't talk to strangers? Never get into a car if mom and dad aren't there? Don't swim without an adult? Don't let people you don't know touch you?  Those are borders.  They're not laws. They're borders.  They're guidelines. Not everything has to be a law to be important.  Borders are clear lines in the sand, often unspoken.  There is a right way to do business and a wrong way to do it.  Oh, this hat's trivial, right?  You think MSNBC is cool if Rachel Maddow wears Fox News gear in public?"

Glenn stopped the audio. He had a point to make.

"Do you know what my luggage says on it?" he asked. "CNN."

"Do you know what my shaving kit says?" Glenn continued. "Fox News."

"Have your picture taken with that stuff," Jeffy interjected.

"Somebody run to the hotel and get my luggage and my shaving kit. I want to take my picture with it today."

So clearly this isn't a big issue with Glenn…that said, Glenn owns his own network, Kaepernick doesn't own his football team. Chances are he'll have a few more people to answer to.

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.
