Glenn’s hospital horror story

By now you may have heard that Glenn welcomed his first grandchild into the world earlier this week. Lorelai Rose DiDonato was born at 3:18pm on Tuesday at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas.

Glenn, who has been treated at the hospital in the past, was relieved his daughter would be delivering her child at world-class facility, but, on radio this morning, Glenn shared that his daughter’s experience was marred by the harsh words and actions of a nurse at the hospital. Glenn decided to share that story because “you’re only as good as the weakest link in your chain.”

“I want to tell you a story about what happened to my daughter two nights ago at a very good hospital. Baylor University and Baylor Hospital is a very good hospital. We give money to research at Baylor Hospital. We respect the people at Baylor,” Glenn said. “I want to make this very clear: Baylor is a great hospital. Every single person we have run into – from the person at the front door to the person at the cafeteria, everyone has been great. Except this one nurse.”

Glenn explained that he decided to tell the story because he wants to the hospital takes the report lodged by his daughter’s doctor against the nurse seriously and to ensure that this does not happen to someone else’s daughter is not treated this way.

“Anybody who's had a child knows how traumatic it is for a mom. The night nurse comes in and she's immediately cold and callous and says, ‘This isn't going to work and this is going to hurt, but you're just going to have to get through it,’” Glenn explained in regards to his daughter breast feeding. “Tim, my daughter's husband, who is a remarkable man -- my gosh, is he a remarkable man… tries to, you know, make things better because he sees his wife starting to crater. And he says, ‘How can I help when we get home? How do we store her milk? Would it be okay if I, like, got a little refrigerator and put it by the bed because I want to feed at night.’ And the nurse looked at him and said, ‘You can't help. She's got to do it.’”

The nurse went on to ask Tim how old he was and how long he and Hannah have been married. After explaining that they had just celebrated their one-year anniversary, the nurse brusquely responded, "So this wasn't a planned pregnancy."

“Excuse me? So this wasn't a planned pregnancy? Excuse me,” Glenn said disgusted.

But the nurse wasn’t done. She went on to advise the couple “to not shake the baby” or else they would end up on the news.

“I'm sorry. Do my children look like baby-shakers,” Glenn asked. “Tim, I know, wanted to rip this woman's head off as my daughter is, you know, cratering, he's just silent, doesn't say anything because he does not want to escalate this because he's trying to care for his wife.”

“So my daughter is having her first breast-feeding experience with, I don't know, somebody who lost their heart on something? I don't know,” he continued. “And everybody has a bad day, but you don't do that job and have a bad day.”

The following morning, Hannah explained what had happened to her OBGYN, who quickly reported the nurse’s unacceptable behavior. Ultimately, however, Glenn questioned what the future of medicine holds, if this kind of behavior occurs at one of the premiere private hospitals in the country.

“Baylor Hospital, you are far, far better than that… We've all had your hospital care. You are a collection of amazing people, you really are. I mean I have seen you in action. I have seen your nurses pray with my family. I have seen things I've never seen in a hospital before,” Glenn said. “Baylor is one of the best hospitals I've ever seen. And there's no excuse for that. None.”

“Now, here's the other reason why I tell you this,” Glenn continued. “This hospital needs to remove this person. But you need to understand that that's what the free market does. You can complain, and when you complain, something happens. It gets bad when there is a union that protects the bad nurses… But if it's a federal union worker, which, it will be soon when we have one single-payer system and it is all federalized and unionized, you are going to pray for the day when that was the worst nurse you would run into.”

Christians are conflicted when it comes to President Donald Trump. Some proudly support him and his policies, while others just can't accept the man behind the boorish language.

Ruth Graham, daughter of the late evangelist Billy Graham, joined Glenn Beck on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to make a case for the president from a Christian's point-of-view.

On Thursday's radio program ,Glenn interviewed Dr. Karlyn Borysenko, who described what it was like attending a President Trump rally as a Democrat. She told Glenn Beck that crossing party lines is nearly forbidden in liberal circles but she branched out anyway — and learned quite a bit about the other side.

Ryan: Bernie at the airport Holiday Inn

(Part One) . (Part Two). (Part Three).

Some poor guy booked a hotel at the Holiday Inn Airport Conference Center in Des Moines on February 3, 2020, assuming it would be a harmless Monday night. Only to find himself in the middle of an overflowing Bernie rally on the night of the caucuses.

For the record, the man was not a Bernie Sanders supporter. Far from it. He popped his head backward when I told him where I work, smiling. Well, grinning, to be precise.

After her speech, Klobuchar wandered into the crowd, immediately submerged. Selfies. Everybody wanted them. A minute later, the other candidates began to appear on screen, giving speeches.

"Bernie," asked Justin Robert Young, host of Politics Politics Politics.

"Bernie," I said, and we paced to the car and lurked out onto the depopulated streets and the trenchant cold. But we were both bright with excitement, a couple of detectives. The valet attendants in their satin outfits saw two oddities, and they were right.

Justin Young and I had just left the Des Moines Marriott Downtown for Amy Klobuchar's "Amy for America caucus night party." She gave her speech, in a brilliant maneuver. I skated the Nissan down empty streets, quietly listening to Bernie's speech on the Iowa Public Radio station.

"I love this, what we're about to do," I said, gripping the wheel, words hurried, leaning forward, tapping my left boot. "We're going to hear Bernie talking, then we'll park, then walk through some doors and we will stroll into that very room as Bernie is giving the speech that's being broadcast to millions of people."

It was like how in the game Mario Bros., Mario can jump into giant green storm drains, occasionally. Like leaping into the television and joining the cast.

"There's nobody out on the roads," one of us said. "Holiday Inn, right up there." As broad-winged commercial airplanes floated overhead. We scoured for a parking spot and each second felt wasted. Urgent. We needed to be inside that hotel. But there was nowhere to park. Even the illegal spots were taken. Cars had creviced every inch of parking lot and curb and all that, had even jammed into dark pyramids of sludge.

Rita Dove wrote, "I prefer to explore the most intimate moments, the smaller, crystallized details we all hinge our lives on."

*

There were so many more journalists press at Bernie's event that the only media spots left were in the overflow room, which itself seemed at capacity. Dank, too. With a heavy vibe, like a sinister library.

The entire hotel exuded gloom. A quietness you hear in locker rooms after a game that should have ended differently.

Bernie supporters, dazed, stomped out into the snow, or to the bathrooms, or just in need of a bit of stomping.

Back to Beechwood Lounge, where we watched the Super Bowl a day earlier. Although it felt like a week had passed since then.

Approaching midnight, by that point.

Because Justin consumes politics with an all-encompassing urgency. As if it's a duty. He's clearly studied history and politics for years. Part historian, part political scientist, but also part reporter and part comedian. On one hand, he's guided by the old school approach to journalism. Objectivity. Solemnity. Accuracy.

An American has the right to tell nobody who they voted for. Or maybe it's a cultural thing.

Snow everywhere you look, piles of it full of gas and oil, and rubbish as well. That day was unseasonably warm. The next would plummet us into literal freezing. The kind of day that slows everyone down. With all that ice, you have to be cautious about every step.

Shame is for the uninitiated.

In 1990 Michael Bloomberg's employees created a short book full of crude, sexist, and shocking quotes he allegedly said at work, including one story that has him telling a female employee to "kill it" after she announced she was pregnant. Sadly, that story has him fitting right in with the Democratic party in 2020.

The booklet, titled, 'Wit & Wisdom of Michael Bloomberg,' has resurfaced to haunt the Democratic presidential candidate after "The Washington Post" published the full text on Saturday.

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Monday, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere (filling in for Glenn) shared some of the less colorful (many were too lewd to be repeated on radio,) but no less disgusting quotes.
