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:

Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) may say he's all about advocating for the common good, but during his more than 30 years in "public service," the socialist senator has been more adept at promoting his own bottom line.

Investigative journalist and best-selling author, Peter Schweizer, joined Glenn Beck in the studio Friday to discuss his new book, "Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America's Political Elite," and to break downs how Sanders has become the very model of the corrupt socialist leader who becomes wealthy at the expense of the citizens they are elected to serve.

"It's a major problem for Bernie Sanders," Schweizer said. "He's turned socialism into a profession that has generated a lot of money to his family."

"Isn't that what always happens?" Glenn asked. "I mean, everybody in charge of a socialist country, they walk away with billions, in some cases, and the people are left starving."

"Yes, that's exactly right," agreed Schweizer. "It is a racket for Bernie Sanders. And the sort of austere image that he presents —kind of the John the Baptist of the progressive movement — it's simply not true."

By now you've probably heard all about former Vice President Joe Biden's alleged corruption in Ukraine with his son, Hunter, and the Ukrainian energy company, Burisma. But as it turns out, the Biden family's dubious dealings weren't limited to Ukraine, but extended to China as well.

In this clip, Glenn Beck explains Hunter Biden's four primary "problems" in China, including partnering with criminals, working with Chinese companies accused of stealing and spying on the U.S. military, as well as some very sketchy investments.

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:
