Which U.S. city was voted the world's 'unfriendliest'?

Conde Nast Traveler released the results of its annual Readers’ Choice Survey, which included, among other things, a list of the ‘friendliest’ and ‘unfriendliest’ cities in the world. As it turns out, five U.S. cities are ranked in the top 10 ‘unfriendliest’ cities in the world – including Newark, New Jersey, which was voted the least friendly city in the world. Just one U.S. city – Charleston, South Carolina – ranked among the top 10 friendliest cities.

Here’s a look at the top 10 ‘unfriendliest’ cities:

10. Tangier, Morocco

9. Atlantic City, New Jersey

8. Detroit, Michigan

7. New Haven, Connecticut

6. Lume, Togo

5. Kuwait City, Kuwait

4. Luanda, Angola

3. Oakland, California

2. Islamabad, Pakistan

1. Newark, New Jersey

“Which would you rather visit? Newark or Islamabad. I'm going to Newark every time. I don't care what you are going for. I'm getting it in Newark, not Islamabad,” Pat said. “I find it interesting that half of the top ten unfriendliest places in the world are in the United States.”

“Let's narrow that down. I find it interesting that they are also all progressive cities,” Glenn continued. “Atlantic City, New Jersey, Detroit, Michigan, New Haven, Connecticut, Oakland, California, and Newark, New Jersey. Those are some of the most progressive areas in our country. What does it tell you?”

Given our poor standings on the ‘unfriendliest’ cities list and lack of representation on the ‘friendliest’ cities list, the Conde Nast Traveler voters obviously aren’t too pleased with the hospitality of American cities.

“Most people in America are friendly,” Glenn said defensively. “Let's look at it. Where are the friendliest places in the world?”

“There's only one American location that made the list,” Pat responded.

The top 10 'friendliest' cities in the world are:

9. Ubud, Bali (tie)

9. Kilkenny, Ireland (tie)

8. Mandalay, Burma

6. Margaret River, Australia (tie)

6. Paro, Bhutan (tie)

5. Charleston, South Carolina

4. Queenstown, New Zealand

3. Thimpu, Bhutan

2. Hobart, Tasmania

1. Florianoplis, Brazil

“Number 5, the only time America comes in, that's Charleston, South Carolina,” Glenn discovered. “Really, besides Charleston there's really no place I want to visit on this list… I'll go to Queenstown, New Zealand, Margaret River, Australia, but it's so far away. I'll go to Kilkenny, Ireland…”

“There's a threat to someone named Kenny in the name of the city,” Stu quipped. “Doesn't sound friendly at all.”

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.
