Glenn reacts to Jon Stewart’s rant on Josh Earnest

President Obama recently hand picked two U.S. Ambassadors to Hungary and Argentina. The selection for Argentina doesn’t speak spanish and has never set foot in Argentina while the selection for Hungary cannot name America’s interests in the region and is a soap opera actress. Josh Earnest was forced to defend this picks and it didn’t go well. Glenn cheered on Jon Stewart’s bit mocking the entire debacle.

GLENN: At least at this time, you come back to me in an hour and I might want something else. But for the time being, all we want is love, pancakes, some bacon and some syrup. That's it. That's all — hello and welcome to Friday. We're glad you're here. Let's just start with Jon Stewart, shall we? Jon Stewart was calling BS to Josh Earnest to the Hungarian ambassador. The Hungarian ambassador was a soap opera producer that has just been appointed. He was a bundler for the president. When she was in front of Congress, can you tell us anything about Hungary, and I think she probably could have gone down — well, I'm hungry right now, and I'd like some pancakes and I heard on the radio syrup and bacon.

PAT: That sounds good to me.

GLENN: She couldn't answer one thing about Hungary. And so Josh Earnest was asked, so what are her qualifications? Here's Jon Stewart.

STEWART: Yesterday it was time for the person holding Washington's worst job to have a lousier day than usual.

VOICE: Ambassador Bell has the president's confidence.

VOICE: Where does the president get that confidence?

VOICE: She certainly is somebody that is — has had her own distinguished private sector career.

VOICE: As a soap opera producer, right?

VOICE: Well, and obviously somebody who has succeeded in the business world.

(laughing).

STEWART: How much does that guy just want to reach over and tag out? Just give a quick one to Jay Carney, or maybe Roman Reigns or maybe one of the Usos or maybe Bray Wyatt or perhaps Bruno San Martino could — I've been watching wrestling for a very long time. Answer the questions, Earnest!

VOICE: Can you tell me the fact that she helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for the president's re-election campaign had nothing to do with her appointment? You can't say that, can you —

VOICE: I can tell you that's not the reason she was chosen. I can tell you the reason she was chosen — frankly, I was not part of this decision-making process.

STEWART: What? You can't do that. That is the greatest thing I've ever seen the president's press secretary do. His entire job, his only job, is built around trying not to go, hey, look, I just [bleep] work here.

(laughing).

STEWART: But that's what he did. Take it up with my supervisor! Earnest, out.

(laughing).

PAT: Now, it would be nice if Stewart noticed that a little more often, because it happens every day.

GLENN: It has been every single day for the last seven years.

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: For the love of Pete.

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: But Jon Stewart, let's give him a bone. At least once. At least once.

PAT: Nice job.

(applause)

GLENN: He's found that.

PAT: She raised 2.2 million. 2.1 million for the president.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: That had nothing to do with it? He's asked point-blank, you can't tell me that that had nothing do with it. And the answer was no. He couldn't say that. He couldn't even — I mean, a guy who lies every day repeatedly for a living couldn't go to that particular lie.

GLENN: We're showing pictures — on the TV network we're showing pictures of this ambassador and she's standing at like the Emmys. We've got — she says you won an Emmy.

PAT: Here's the tie — the Emmys are broadcast in Hungary.

GLENN: There you go.

PAT: You have cable in Budapest? You can watch her.

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Monday, Harvard Law professor and lawyer on President Donald Trump's impeachment defense team Alan Dershowitz explains the history of impeachment and its process, why the framers did not include abuse of power as criteria for a Constitutional impeachment, why the Democrats are framing their case the way they are, and what to look for in the upcoming Senate trial.

Dershowitz argued that "abuse of power" -- one of two articles of impeachment against Trump approved by House Democrats last month -- is not an impeachable act.

"There are two articles of impeachment. The second is 'obstruction of Congress.' That's just a false accusation," said Dershowitz. "But they also charge him, in the Ukraine matter, with abuse of power. But abuse of power was discussed by the framers (of the U.S. Constitution) ... the framers refused to include abuse of power because it was too broad, too open-ended.

"In the words of James Madison, the father of our Constitution, it would lead presidents to serve at the will of Congress. And that's exactly what the framers didn't want, which is why they were very specific and said a president can be impeached only for treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors," he added.

"What's alleged against President Trump is not criminal," added Dershowitz. "If they had criminal issues to allege, you can be sure they would have done it. If they could establish bribery or treason, they would have done it already. But they didn't do it. They instead used this concept of abuse of power, which is so broad and general ... any president could be charged with it."

On Friday's radio program, Bill O'Reilly joins Glenn Beck discuss the possible outcomes for the Democrats in 2020.

Why are former President Barack and First Lady Michelle Obama working overtime to convince Americans they're more moderate than most of the far-left Democratic presidential candidates? Is there a chance of a Michelle Obama vs. Donald Trump race this fall?

O'Reilly surmised that a post-primary nomination would probably be more of a "Bloomberg play." He said Michael Bloomberg might actually stand a chance at the Democratic nomination if there is a brokered convention, as many Democratic leaders are fearfully anticipating.

"Bloomberg knows he doesn't really have a chance to get enough delegates to win," O'Reilly said. "He's doing two things: If there's a brokered convention, there he is. And even if there is a nominee, it will probably be Biden, and Biden will give [him] Secretary of State or Secretary of Treasury. That's what Bloomberg wants."

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Friday, award-winning investigative reporter John Solomon, a central figure in the impeachment proceedings, explained his newly filed lawsuit, which seeks the records of contact between Ukraine prosecutors and the U.S. Embassy officials in Kiev during the 2016 election.

The records would provide valuable information on what really happened in Ukraine, including what then-Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter were doing with Ukrainian energy company, Burisma Holdings, Solomon explained.

The documents, which the State Department has withheld thus far despite repeated requests for release by Solomon, would likely shed light on the alleged corruption that President Donald Trump requested to be investigated during his phone call with the president of Ukraine last year.

With the help of Southeastern Legal Foundation, Solomon's lawsuit seeks to compel the State Department to release the critical records. Once released, the records are expected to reveal, once and for all, exactly why President Trump wanted to investigate the dealings in Ukraine, and finally expose the side of the story that Democrats are trying to hide in their push for impeachment.

"It's been a one-sided story so far, just like the beginning of the Russia collusion story, right? Everybody was certain on Jan. 9 of 2017 that the Christopher Steele dossier was gospel. And our president was an agent of Russia. Three years later, we learned that all of that turned out to be bunk, " Solomon said.

"The most important thing about politics, and about investigations, is that there are two sides to a story. There are two pieces of evidence. And right now, we've only seen one side of it," he continued. "I think we'll learn a lot about what the intelligence community, what the economic and Treasury Department community was telling the president. And I bet the story was way more complicated than the narrative that [House Intelligence Committee Chairman] Adam Schiff [D-Calif.] has woven so far."

Carter Page, a former advisor to Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign, found himself at the center of the Russia probe and had his reputation and career destroyed by what we now know were lies from our own intelligence system and the media.

On the TV show Thursday, Page joined Glenn Beck to speak out about how he became the subject of illegal electronic surveillance by the FBI for more than two years, and revealed the extent of the corruption that has infiltrated our legal systems and our country as a whole.

"To me, the bigger issue is how much damage this has done to our country," Page told Glenn. "I've been very patient in trying to ... find help with finding solutions and correcting this terrible thing which has happened to our country, our judicial system, DOJ, FBI -- these once-great institutions. And my bigger concern is the fact that, although we keep taking these steps forward in terms of these important findings, it really remains the tip of the iceberg."

Page was referencing the report by Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz, which revealed that the FBI made "at least 17 significant errors or omissions" in its Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) applications for warrants to spy on Page, a U.S. citizen.

"I think this needs to be attacked from all angles," Glenn said. "The one angle I'm interested in from you is, please tell me you have the biggest badass attorneys that are hungry, starving, maybe are a little low to pay their Mercedes payments right now, and are just gearing up to come after the government and the media. Are they?"

I can confirm that that is the case," Page replied.
