‘He’s so mavericky’: Glenn reacts to Sen. John McCain’s epic flip-flop

Remember when Senator John McCain (R-AZ) referred to anyone fighting to delay/defund Obamacare as a “wacko bird”? Well – irony of all ironies – six weeks later, Sen. McCain is calling for the “total repeal” of the law. Sen. McCain announced his flip-flop during an interview with Fox News’ Greta van Susteren last night.

“You know, there's times that you look at John McCain and you say, ‘You're a dirt bag weasel’ and then other times you look at him and you say, ‘You're a weasel dirt bag,’” Glenn said on radio this morning. “And it's that dichotomy of is he a ‘dirt bag weasel’ or weasel dirt bag’ that [makes him] the most mavericky maverick I've ever seen – and I know mavericks.”

To start, let’s take a look at what Sen. McCain had to say about fellow Senators Mike Lee (R-UT) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) in September:

“Yeah, he didn't know what he was doing. He was really pretty stupid and he's a wacko bird,” Glenn said mockingly. “And you know, it couldn't be that those people who are doing this, actually believed in something. Actually, at least wanted to be on the record saying, ‘This is wrong… I'm not playing a game.’ No, it couldn't be that. No, they are just dumb. They're some of them are anarchists, some of them are even terrorists. However, when the lousy senator from Arizona – I'd like to call him the good senator from Arizona but I don't think he's a good senator from Arizona, I think he's a lousy senator from Arizona – when the lousy senator from Arizona decides that oh wait a minute, now the political winds have changed, now he wants to jump on.”

Last night, during his sit-down with van Susteren, Sen. McCain announced his “solution” for what he now apparently believes to be the diabolical healthcare law:

MCCAIN: The solution is, first of all, to let people keep their insurance if they want to. Or at least reinstate them. Second of all, let the insurance companies give a menu of whatever they want to provide. Third of all, medical savings account. Fourth of all, medical malpractice reform. Let people go across state lines to, in order to, if they can get a better insurance policy in another state. And remove this whole tax incentive for employers to provide employees health insurance.

“He's an anarchist,” Glenn said sarcastically. “He's not a terrorist is he? Is he a wacko bird? He's not a wacko bird saying we should repeal this thing is he?”

When van Susteren suggested Sen. McCain’s “solution” sounded like a “repeal,” Sen. McCain declared:

MCCAIN: That’s exactly right. That is total repeal in every other way. Because what Obamacare is, is an experiment in social engineering — in other words, making healthy people pay more…in order to subsidize the health care for people that are older and unhealthy. That is the ultimate in social engineering.

While Sen. McCain has called for the repeal of Obamacare in the past, his recent remarks stand in stark contrast to that belief. He was perfectly content throwing his colleagues under the bus over an idea he now seems to be suggesting. Why the change of heart, Sen. McCain?

“Whoa. Wait a minute. John McCain you're such a maverick. If I may recognize the lousy senator from Arizona, I'm trying to get my arms around this. He's so maverick,” Glenn said. “It's almost like he's using someone else's recycled idea, you know? And it's almost like he had to destroy someone so he could retain his power. You know what I mean? And then take his idea and then just recycle it, repackage it, and then go on the sources that won't hold him accountable at all because they are part of the problem. You know what I mean?”

“He's just now on Fox News, saying, repeal, does he know that there's no chance of that ever happening? Does he realize that? Or, does he think there is a chance now? And so he can look like the leader that he always has been,” he continued. “Oh my goodness, because now, if we have a chance, he's already destroyed every one else. And if he could just make it look mavericky, the GOP could look like this was their idea, and they are working together with the maverick. Oh, what a win for the progressives, almost… Again, I just can't decide whether he is a ‘dirt bag weasel’ or a ‘weasel dirt bag.’ I can't decide.”

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
