‘The kiss of Depp’: Glenn analyzes Johnny Depp’s latest flop

The weekend box office numbers are in, and Johnny Depp’s Transcendence failed to live up to expectations – or its hefty price tag. The film reportedly cost $100 million to produce, and made just $11.5 million over the weekend. Transcendence was trounced by Heaven is for Real, which took in an estimated $21.5 million in its opening weekend and cost just $12 million to make. On radio this morning, Glenn characterized Depp’s recent flops at the box office as “the kiss of Depp” as he tried to make sense of the eccentric actor.

“We were talking about Johnny Depp. And you know what the weird thing is about Johnny Depp? I think he is a Ferris wheel and a slumber party away from being Michael Jackson,” Glenn said. “He's from Kentucky. Have you ever listened to the guy… You're from Kentucky, dude… What happened to the American accent? He doesn't seem to have that anymore. Is it just me?”

To be fair, Depp has lived in France for a number of years, but Glenn questioned whether the actor lives his life in character.

“I have no problem with somebody being a character, somebody who's eccentric,” Glenn said. “But it's like he's lost him. I don't know who he is. He's always playing a character in life… You look at his movies, the closer he gets to being a normal human being, the more he can't pull it off… At one point you were a regular dude. What happened to you?”

Stu ran through some of Depp’s bigger films like the Pirates of the Caribbean series, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and Alice in Wonderland, which all performed quite well at the box office. But, then again, Depp was playing a very specific character in each of those situations.

Ultimately, Glenn doesn’t think the Owensboro, Kentucky native is a bad actor. He just can’t figure him out.

“Do you know what he's? He's a combination,” Glenn said. “When I said he's a Ferris wheel and a slumber party away from being Michael Jackson – he's not Michael Jackson. He [is] Woody Allen.”

“He might be these people except for the thing that they did that made them horrible,” Stu clarified. “Like Michael Jackson was sleeping with children. That's why people were upset with Michael Jackson. Woody Allen… married his freaking daughter. That's why they don't like Woody Allen. He didn't do any of those things that we know of.”

Glenn got the last word and couldn’t help but add a slightly maniacal twist to the whole discussion.

“Why has he got an English accent and living in France? There's a possibility it's a witness protection program,” Glenn concluded before employing his best attempt at Depp’s accent. “’Only blokes in Kentucky would want to hide me in jail so I'll hide in disguise in my blue glasses, I will.’”

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Friday to discuss the latest developments in the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump.

According to Cruz, Thursday was a "very consequential day" in the otherwise tedious and redundant impeachment proceedings.

"Yesterday, the House managers effectively threw Joe Biden under the bus," Cruz said. "They doubled down on what they started doing on the first day of arguments, which was making their entire case ... based on the proposition that there was zero evidence to justify investigating Burisma [the Ukrainian natural gas company that paid then-Vice President Joe Biden's son, Hunter, $50,000 a month to sit on the board]."

Cruz went on to explain that every time the Democrats, namely House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), rehash the "zero-evidence" argument, they open the door for Republicans to present the overwhelming evidence that contradicts those claims.

"That proposition, that there's zero evidence to investigate Burisma, is utterly and completely absurd. So, I'm looking forward to Saturday when the president's lawyers will begin presenting his case. Because what the Democrats have done, is they have opened the door to this. And I hope the president's lawyers will stand up and systematically lay out the case," Cruz said.

"They've been arguing that Hunter Biden is completely irrelevant to this case. Well, the House managers have now, through their arguments, made Hunter Biden not only relevant — he was always relevant — but critical now," he continued. "They built the entire case, like a house of cards, on the proposition that there was no reasonable basis to investigate Burisma. And that's just absurd."

The two also discussed Cruz's new podcast, "Verdict with Ted Cruz," which he records with Daily Wire host Michael Knowles each night following the Senate trial.

"Last night's podcast went through systematically ... all of the overwhelming evidence of corruption from Burisma that any president, not only had the authority to investigate, but the responsibility to investigate," Cruz said. "And that, ultimately, is why President Trump is going to be acquitted at the end of this process."

The violent crime rate in the United States has continued to decline every year since 1991 and last year the violent crime rate nationwide was down another 3% from the previous year.

Unfortunately for the people living in Minnesota's 5th Congressional District, represented by Ilhan Omar (D), this trend toward a safer and more secure America does not apply in Minneapolis. In fact, Minneapolis police report a 53% increase in robberies since the controversial congresswoman took office in January 2019.

Minneapolis has also become the terrorist recruitment capital of the U.S. More people in Rep. Omar's district have either joined or attempted to join terrorist organizations, including Al Qaeda, al-Shabab, and ISIS, than any other place in the nation.

So, how is Rep. Omar addressing these issues? Is it just a coincidence that Minneapolis' representative in Congress is known for sowing division and hatred?

Watch this clip to hear Glenn break down the situation in Rep. Omar's district:

Glenn Beck: Adam Schiff is a LIAR — and we have the proof

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck didn't hold back when discussing the latest in a long list of lies issued by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) during the Democrats' ongoing endeavor to remove President Donald Trump from office.

"I'm going to just come out and say, Adam Schiff is a liar. And he intentionally lied. And we have the proof. The media being his little lapdog, but I'll explain what's really going on, and call the man a liar to his face," Glenn asserted. "No, I'm not suggesting he's a liar. No, I'm telling you, he's a liar. ... Adam Schiff is a lying dirtbag."

A recent report in Politico claimed Schiff "mischaracterized" the content of a document sent to House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) as evidence against President Trump in the Senate impeachment trial. Read more on this here.

"Let me translate [for Politico]," Glenn said. "House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff lied about a text message exchange between two players in the Ukrainian saga. And we know it, because of the documents that were obtained by Politico."

A few of the other lies on Schiff's list include his repeated false claims that there was "significant evidence of collusion" between the Trump campaign and Russia leading up to the 2016 presidential election, his phony version of President Trump's phone call with the president of Ukraine, and his retracted claim that neither he nor his committee ever had contact with the Trump-Ukraine whistleblower. And the list just keeps getting longer.
