Glenn tweets response to Geraldo bathroom pic

Updated: Glenn discussed Geraldo's bizarre selfie on radio this morning, original story can be found further down the page:

While Glenn did post the photo with some mockery, he did make a serious point on radio about the dangers of vanity and self-absortion that comes with being on TV every night.

"So here's what this is: Television does horrible things to you. It really does. It does horrible things to you. And you get so self‑absorbed and so looking into that camera and then seeing that image come back at you all the time. I mean, you ‑‑ what you gaze upon you become, and you're gazing upon yourself all the time and so they become ‑‑ and I shouldn't say "they." We become ‑‑ we're in television ‑‑ become self‑absorbed. You ‑‑ it's a very weird phenomena. And you notice every wrinkle, every ‑‑ everything that is going on with your body and your face," Glenn said.

"But this is why you can't trust the news. This is why you don't get the truth from news anymore because they are so focused on the image, they're so focused on the ‑‑ what they look like telling you. They're not using their brain. Look at what he's just done. Do you think there was any brainpower attached to this at all?" he continued. "It was total ego."

Geraldo isn't the only one to succumb to ego, Glenn said that he's experienced this phenomena himself.

"I don't mean to select him out. I've fallen into this trap too. Television does this to you, and it's a really bad thing. That's why ‑‑ I mean, I've said this before: It's Hotel California. You go in, and unless you get out in the right time, it ain't no ‑‑ it's just, you don't ever leave. And I say this as a guy who's still on, you know, television. But I started my own network. So I don't care as much anymore. For some reason once you're the boss of it, you don't really care."

"But I will tell you that it ‑‑ when I've said to you before this was a very hard year, the previous year, not this year, previous year (2012) was a very hard year for me, it was because going from ‑‑ and Roger Ailes and I talked about this in his office. I said, you know, I'm lucky enough to know ‑‑ he said, what are you going to do? I said, not really sure. We're going to do Internet. I don't really know exactly how it's all going to work out. And he said, you're not leaving here. And I said, yeah, I am. I'm lucky enough to know who I was coming in the door. So I know what the power of Fox was and what my power is. And my power is nothing. Power of Fox is huge, and I was lucky enough to remember that. But walking out of that door and having that vacuum of this ‑‑ the power of a network, I mean, I can't even imagine what NBC or CBS in its golden days. Can you imagine what it was when Bill Cosby was on television, you know, or you were on Cheers? Imagine the power of somebody like Lucille Ball where 70% of all televisions were on. Or Monday Night Football in its heyday?"

"The power and walking away and then becoming a normal citizen again. It really screws you up. Really screws you up. And I think that's what's happening with Geraldo Rivera is he's lived in that bubble for so long that there's two things happening: One, dig me because that's all my world is really all about: Dig me. Look at me. Look at me. Look at me. And two, the possibility is, as all of us do when we get older, you start to think to yourself, 'Do I have it anymore? Am I anything? Did I make a difference?' And it's really kind of, it's a sad cry for help."

Just to show that Glenn hasn't always been as level-headed as he is now, below is an artists rendering of a shirtless Glenn Beck...which is absolutely, 100% accurate (in his dreams):

Original Story:

Why in the world would Fox News host Geraldo Rivera think it was a good idea to tweet a nearly nude photo of himself?

“70 is the new 50,” Geraldo tweeted before adding "(Erica and family are going to be so pissed…but at my age…)”.

Yeah...VOMIT

Glenn saw the photo and couldn't help tweeting one of his own:

"Okay 49 isn't 70. But still - check out my bathroom towel pic! Sorry ladies I just can't turn this off!" Glenn said, poking fun at Geraldo by appearing in his bathroom mirror with more layers than you would wear on an Antarctic expedition.

Glenn has gotten his own share of criticism, with most criticizing his "over-the-top" bathroom:

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
