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…)”.


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:

New York mom ARRESTED after son shows school nurse his new tattoo

The mother of a 10-year-old boy was arrested in Highland, New York, for allowing her son to get a permanent tattoo on his forearm.

Crystal Thomas was charged with endangering the welfare of a child after a school nurse discovered her son's new tattoo, his name in large block letters, and reported it to school officials. Thomas faces up to one year in prison if convicted, and her two children were both taken away by child protective services. The tattoo artist was also arrested.

In New York, it is illegal for anyone under the age of 18 to get a tattoo, even with parental consent.

In New York, state officials have introduced a bill that would ensure that parents who allow their young children to receive so-called "gender-affirming care" — which may include puberty blockers, hormone therapy, and surgeries — are protected under the law, as well as the physicians who provide such "care."

"Can [you] hear the cognitive dissonance in this story?" asked Glenn Beck on the radio program. "You have got to be kidding me."

Chloe Cole says she began to be "brainwashed" by the gender ideology she saw all over social media when she was only 11 years old. By the time she turned 13, Chloe was convinced that she was a boy, and her parents didn't know how to respond. So they turned to the so-called "experts," who rushed Chloe into life-altering hormone treatments and surgeries. Not only did these experts give "no alternatives" to transitioning, but they lied to Chloe's parents behind her back to scare them into compliance.

Chloe joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" to share her heartbreaking experience and to expose the dark world of “gender-affirming care,” which she believes no teen should ever be subject to — from hormone blockers to mastectomies: "This is all wrong. I regret every single step, and this shouldn't have happened."

She also had a warning for parents about what led her to make those decisions in the first place, and she provided some key advice on how to react compassionately to situations like hers.

Nearly two years after the January 6 riot at the Capitol, the mystery of who planted two pipe bombs outside the Republican and Democratic National Committee offices remains unsolved. Thankfully, the bombs were found and disabled before they could cause any harm, but with their potential for devastating consequences — not to mention the massive investigations into all things relating to Jan.6 — why does it seem like this story has practically fallen off the face of the earth?

No one in the corporate media has even tried to look into it, and the government's narrative that the bombs were meant to be a diversion for the Capitol riot doesn't make sense when you look at the timeline of events.

So, on this week's episode of "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck broke down the timeline of events that led up to the discovery of the bombs and how the facts appear to point toward one sinister conclusion:

  • Security footage reportedly shows that the two pipe bombs were planted in front of the DNC and RNC the day before the riot.
  • Neither bomb was concealed.
  • Then-Vice President-elect Kamala Harris entered the DNC headquarters at approximately 11: 30 am on January 6.
  • At approximately 12:40 pm on January 6, the first pipe bomb was discovered sitting in plain sight outside the DNC headquarters, raising questions as to why the incoming vice president didn't have better security.
  • The pipe bomb had a one-hour kitchen timer that had apparently stopped with 20 minutes left on the timer. (Remember, the bombs were planted on January 5.)
  • The Secret Service reportedly erased their communications from January 5t and January 6 by "accident."

"It doesn't really hit you unless you look at it as a timeline, and then you're like, 'wait a minute that doesn't seem right.' The unsolved mystery of the pipe bomb has been used by the government to show that January 6 riot was part of a larger coordinated attack ... that the bombs were a diversion to get the Capitol police away from the Capitol," Glenn explained.

"But the bomb had a one-hour timer and it was planted at 8 p.m. the night before. So the bomb would have to go off the night before at about 9 p.m. on January 5. How's that a diversion? It's not physically even possible."
