Did a reporter seriously ask Jay Carney these questions?

We have heard some bizarre questions from reporters in the White House press pool over the years, but yesterday, Mediaite’s Tommy Christopher took it to a whole new level when he peppered White House Press Secretary Jay Carney with some downright bizarre questions about Obamacare and the debt ceiling debate.

“It is so simpleminded and pandering that I wonder if there's something wrong with him,” Glenn said of Christopher on radio this morning. “Because listen to this question asked by Mediaite yesterday in the press room.”

CARNEY:  Tommy.

CHRISTOPHER:  I have three questions.

CARNEY:  Three?

CHRISTOPHER:  Yeah.  First of all, I don't know if you're aware of this but when I had a heart attack three years ago, I was uninsured and haven't been able to get insurance ever since then. Listening to all the pressure on the president negotiate a lot from inside this room made me think, is there a chance the president would be willing to delay Obamacare for a year if Republicans were to agree to delay heart attacks for a year?

“Okay. Stop,” Glenn said. “Notice that there's nobody in the press room laughing. Nobody laughed at that because that is such an outrageously stupid question. You seriously question the man's IQ. I mean, what, are you applying for a job? Is that what you're doing? Really, is that what you're doing? Are you applying for a job? Would the President delay Obamacare for a year if the Republicans decide to delay heart attacks for a year?”

“I mean, that's just mindless stupidity,” Pat agreed. “And it went on. There was more.”

CHRISTOPHER:  My second question, I was talking to my mom this morning actually and she asked me to ask you to please open government back up again. And I know you can't just do that, but she's really worried about her Social Security check. And I told her, you know, don't worry, Mom, we'll get it taken care of; I don't want you to worry. But, you know, Steve Rattner last night said that October 23rd is one of these drop-dead dates, you know, when stuff starts to pile up. And so I guess my question is, you know, should she be worried?

CARNEY:  What I would say about that which goes to the issue of the debt ceiling is that the basic premise of the United States always pays its bills on time is not jeopardized. So that's the position the President has taken.

“Okay. I'm talking to Mommy? So I'm already questioning his IQ on the first one,” Glenn said.

“Tommy's talking to Mommy and Mommy wants to know about the Social Security check… You cannot default. He is picking and choosing. You cannot, according to the Constitution, default. And why no one will say that is beyond me. If you aren't paying your Social Security checks, that, again, will be by choice – the President's choice, not Congress' choice. And if anybody thinks that the President would choose not to pay Social Security, then that says something about the President of the United States… Now, here's the third question.”

CHRISTOPHER:  Do you remember the last debt ceiling deal there was a plan floated that was called the McConnell plan where congress would authorize a debt ceiling increase for, I think it was a year, year and a half, and it would hold a vote every so often so the Republicans could vote no, but it would require 2/3 majority to overrule. So it gave the president the authority. Is something like the McConnell plan in the air now, being discussed now? And if not, why not?

“Oh, those are three hard-hitting, brutal questions,” Pat quipped. “I'm worried about whether the Republicans will agree to delay heart attacks for a year… That's got to be embarrassing. How do you let the guy back in the office? [Mediaite has] got some actual people who work there, some real journalists who work there and are really trying to do some actual work. And then you got this clown? Really?”

“I mean that's the guy you send to the White House,” Glenn asked. “Tommy and his Mommy?”

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."
