Oprah is sorry...

After the country of Switzerland issued her an apology for any ‘racist’ behavior she may have endured during a recent trip to the country, Oprah has now apologized for the media frenzy that resulted from her claims.

OPRAH: I think that incident in Switzerland was just an incident in Switzerland. I'm really sorry that it got blown up. I purposefully did not mention the name of the store. I'm sorry that I said it was Switzerland. I was just referencing it as an example of being in a place where people don't expect that you would be able to be there.

“Oprah is really sorry, everybody. Oprah's sorry,” Glenn said to open the radio show this morning.

The sales assistant who Oprah claims refused to show her a $38,000 handbag because of the color of her skin, has since spoken out about the incident, saying that the entire ordeal was a misunderstanding. While Oprah has apologized for causing such an uproar, she didn’t exactly apologize to the woman for accusing her racism.

Oprah made a career of spreading messages of hope and empowerment, and yet she seems to perpetuate a culture of victimization that undermines those values.

“So she's making $77 million a year, and what is she doing,” Glenn asked. “She claims, and the rest of the media backs her up, she claims that she is empowering people. That is the whole concept behind Oprah's legacy – she was empowering; she said, ‘You go, girl.’ But look at her.”

“The only president she's ever endorsed is the guy that says, ‘You can't do it,’” he continued. The church that we know she went to is the one that they say, ‘You can't do it. You're a victim.’ She goes over to Switzerland to look at a $38,000 purse, and what does she say? She's the victim.”

“Like, that's the thing. It's what do you jump to,” Stu reiterated. “What do you jump to? What's your initial instinct? And Oprah's initial instinct is always that she's being victimized by some prejudice against her sex or against her color or whatever.”

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.
