‘Go find something else to do’: D.C. councilman berates reporter for doing her job

Earlier this week, former Washington D.C. mayor and current D.C. councilman Marion Barry made headlines when his car was impounded due to several thousand dollars in unpaid tickets dating back to 2012. While many have raised questions as to why Barry was able to get away without paying the fines for so long, at least one reporter got under the councilman’s skin when she confronted him about the situation.

“We have some of the most incredible audio for you to hear,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “This is… from the local Fox station in Washington, D.C. And [the reporter] runs into Marion Barry because she wants to talk to him about parking tickets that he hasn't paid for. This [shows] the problem with our system of government.”

WTTG-TV investigative reporter Emily Miller spoke Barry outside of city hall, where raw footage captures the former mayor berating the journalist about her credentials.

“How long have you been with Fox 5,” Barry asked before adding: “You've been here since April. You don't know a damn thing about Washington, D.C.”

Ultimately, Barry suggests Miller “go find something else to do.”

Below is Miller's report for WTTG:

As Glenn explained, Barry’s attitude personifies the problem with too many politicians in this country. The sense of entitlement and lack of accountability not only allowed Barry to avoid paying his tickets for several years, but it also allows him to believe he is above the law.

In the past, Glenn has talked about the history of government/media relations. Since Woodrow Wilson’s administration, there has been a cozy, ‘you scratch my back, I’ll scratch your back mentality’ that is evident in Barry’s dismal of Miller.

“This goes to the Woodrow Wilson kind of philosophy of… get all of the politicians and reporters together and they'll work together. They'll become friends,” Glenn explained. “‘Look, we're not going to hit them on that because we need to get this story done and we need to do this.’ And that's what happens. They scratch each other's back. Now Fox is going to pay a price because they ambushed Marion Barry.”

Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed no one wants to live in an America in which this kind of ‘above the law’ behavior is commonplace. With the midterm election just around this corner, perhaps now is the time to really consider the types of people we are putting in office and the values they represent.

Tonight on "Glenn TV," Glenn Beck outlines everything that led up to the chaos in Kabul in a blow-by-blow takedown that SHOULD lead to massive resignations within the Biden administration and top military brass. Americans died. Americans are – TO THIS DAY – still stranded, and it is ALL on President Joe Biden.

Glenn interviews The Nazarene Fund's Rudy Atallah who gives an update on the total rescue numbers and details the obstacles he's had to overcome with the State Department. He explains why he believes they are thwarting private sector rescue efforts and says the numbers of Americans begging to be rescued are in the thousands — not hundreds — and "will exceed any number that has come out of Jen Psaki's mouth." While The Nazarene Fund rescue efforts continue in a more perilous Afghanistan, Rudy reveals another terrifying obstacle: Chinese and Russians resources deployed to assist the Taliban in rounding up church leaders, women, journalists, and lawyers who put terrorists away.

Glenn also interviews Tim Kennedy, an Afghanistan war veteran and president of Sheepdog Response who partnered with SaveOurAllies.org to sneak past the Taliban and bring thousands to safety. He details the moment the bomb went off when he was on the ground at the Kabul airport and addresses the Taliban kill list. "They will kill babies, execute women, and cut your tongue out. That's just the G-rated stuff."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck, Stu Burguiere, and Pat Gray ripped into President Joe Biden's latest speech in which our commander in chief touted the Afghanistan withdrawal as an "extraordinary success" that was "designed to save American lives" — despite the loss of 13 of America's finest, our military equipment in the hands of our enemies, and scores of Americans and allies still trapped in Afghanistan.

"This was not a success by any stretch of the imagination and people need to be held accountable," Glenn asserted. "Because if this is allowed to stand, and these people are just allowed to continue on with no ramifications, you don't not want to see what our military will turn into. I am telling you now, we will become the darkest force ever, ever to walk the earth. With our technology, and our resources, with our fighting machines that soon can be run robotically, we will make the Nazis look like rookies ... this must not continue!"

Glenn then played a video clip from the speech in which President Biden claimed that the "Taliban has made public commitments, broadcast on television and radio across Afghanistan, on safe passage for anyone wanting to leave, including those who worked alongside Americans."

"Anyone who says, 'Oh, they're going to let them through their checkpoint,' doesn't know their ass from their elbow!" Glenn responded. "They have no idea what is going on, or they are lying. So, Mr. President, which one is it? Do you not really know what's going on? If so, the 25th Amendment should be invoked. If you do know what's going on, then you should be impeached for lying to the American people on such a grand scale, it's staggering!"

Which is more impeachable — former President Trump's phone call to Ukraine or President Biden's Afghanistan withdrawal, which destroyed relations with our allies, gave the Taliban tons of U.S. military equipment, and resulted in the deaths of 13 U.S. service members?

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain why she's calling for President Biden to be impeached — but she's not stopping there.

"I have legislation that will be introduced to impeach both Biden and [Vice President Kamala] Harris. And Nancy Pelosi can follow them out the freaking door," she told Glenn.

When Glenn Beck asked his audience to "give until it hurts" to get Christians and other refugees out of Afghanistan, he thought it was an "impossible goal." Two days later, that goal was surpassed with rescue efforts already under way. This miracle was only possible because of God and all who donated, Glenn said on the radio program.

"I told you there's no way this happens unless God is present. If this happens, it is because God has opened up doors," Glenn began. "Everyone would tell us it can't be done. It can be done. And if we serve others, if we keep our eyes and our hearts open to suffering of others and get out of our suffering, we will solve problems that people will say can't be solved. You will see miracles in your lifetime ... it will be a Moses-style miracle and it happened because of you. Don't you dare give up hope," he added.

"Out of all of the principles that we have as a nation, the one that makes us so noble is we never leave people behind," Glenn went on to say. "Don't let that go out of your heart. Don't close your heart. I don't know why I'm telling you this ... your heart is more open than I thought, and your heart is more open than mine. Thank you for giving me my hope in the future back."
