FAIL: Hillary Clinton proves she doesn’t have a strong grasp on U.S. history

Hillary Clinton’s media blitz for her new memoir did not get off to the best start. Both the left and right are chastising her now infamous “dead broke” comment as her poll numbers hit their lowest levels since 2008. Clinton had another flub during a speaking engagement in Chicago on Wednesday as she attempted to draw a parallel between her 2008 campaign against Barack Obama and Abraham Lincoln’s 1860 primary race.

“We have leaders in office or just out of office who have really solidified all the principles and values of this nation because they know from whence we came. Leaders like Hillary Clinton, who is probably running for president in 2016… know our history like no one else,” Pat joked on radio this morning. “There are a lot of people who didn't know that Abraham Lincoln was a U.S. senator, but we found out yesterday that he sure was.”

“I write about Rahm [Emanuel] in the book. I asked him not to read it before we sat and did our interview, but it was the very first chapter – a chapter I rightly call ‘Team of Rivals’ because that's what it was in the beginning,” Clinton said. “A senator from Illinois ran against a senator from New York, just as had happened way back with a senator from Illinois named Lincoln and a senator from New York named Seward. And it turned out the same way.”

Lincoln actually served as a congressman from Illinois in the mid-1800s.

“How do these people seriously… have any credibility? Pelosi's the same way. Last week she was spewing stuff about the Constitution she knows nothing about. She does that on fairly regular basis,” Pat said. “But they show their ignorance so often. And the left just keeps eating up everything they say.”

While Stu was less willing to pounce on Clinton for the seemingly honest mistake, he could not help but bring up Senator Chuck Schumer’s (D-NY) embarrassing 2011 flub in which he failed to correctly identify the three branches of government.

“So I would urge my Republican colleagues, no matter how strongly they feel, we have three branches of government,” Schumer said. “We have a House. We have a Senate. We have a president. All three of us are going to have to come together and give some.”

“A House, Senate and president,” Pat said disgusted. “Not even ‘executive.’ It's the House, Senate, president.”

On the bright side, at least he knows there are three branches…

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
