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.”

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Left's latest move — canceling six Dr. Seuss books due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity. And now, school districts are jumping on board after President Joe Biden seems to have dropped Dr. Seuss from the White House's annual "Read Across America Day" proclamation.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn argued that deleting books is the perfect example of fascism, and asked when we as a country will finally realize it.

"They are banning Dr. Seuss books. How much more do you need to see before all of America wakes up? ... This is fascism!" Glenn said. "We don't destroy books. What is wrong with us, America?"

Former Democratic presidential candidate and Hawaii representative Tulsi Gabbard and Glenn Beck don't agree much on policy, but they're in lockstep on principles.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Tulsi spoke with Glenn about one of her last acts in Congress, introducing the "Protect Women's Sports Act," which she says would "strengthen, clarify, and uphold the intent of Title IX to provide a level playing field for girls and women in sports." But since then, the Biden administration has gone in the opposite direction, and has supported allowing biological men to compete in women's sports.
