To watch the news or not to watch the news: Obama caught in another lie

As of late, it has truly seemed like déjà vu all over again at the White House. In May, then Press Secretary Jay Carney said President Obama knew nothing about the long wait times and deaths at the VA until he read about it in the newspaper. You may recall Carney employed a similar excuse when it came to explaining how the President learned about the IRS scandal, Fast and Furious, and the Department of Justice spying on reporters.

But now it appears as though the White House can’t keep its excuses straight. During a fundraiser in Seattle, Washington on Tuesday, the President reportedly told attendees he doesn’t watch the news because “whatever they’re reporting about, usually I know.”

Hmmm.

On radio this morning, Glenn questioned what is true and what is false when it comes to this presidency.

“President Obama said at one of these fundraisers that he's not ‘overly partisan.’ Didn't he say we have to punish our enemies? And here's one of my favorites, he also doesn't watch the news,” Glenn explained. “You don't watch the news? Hold on just a second. What is your excuse every time a scandal happens?”

While Obama’s remark about not being “overly partisan” has dominated the headlines, his offhanded barb at the news caught the attention of the White House travel pool report. According to CBS Seattle, the President made the comments during an event with donors.

Needless to say, Glenn was curious as to who is actually telling the truth. Does Obama really know about all these things ahead of time and his team is using the news as an excuse, or did he lie to during the fundraiser? The truth remains to be seen, but Glenn was ultimately angry at the press for not holding this Administration accountable for anything.

“You know, I'm not mad at the president… I am disgusted by these people that claim to be reporters. Disgusted by them,” Glenn concluded. “He doesn't watch the news because he already knows everything that's in the news? So that leaves us at a place where there's no accountability because I can't tell if that's the head of the dog or the tail of the dog.”

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.
