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.


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.


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


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.


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.

The conditions in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule — for Americans, allies, Christians, women and more — continue to deteriorate, and the people there continue to plead that we will not forget them. On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck gave an emotional update on current evacuation efforts, including the tragic story of one girl — an American passport holder — who was not rescued in time.

"I have a pit in my stomach like I haven't had in a while. What is happening in Afghanistan is both miraculous and horrendous," Glenn began. "What's going on right now one of the most amazing things I've ever personally witnessed — the evacuation of Americans, those [Afghans] who helped us, Christians that are dying, women that are under incredible conditions. I see things that I can't show you. I see the pleadings from people who are in safe houses, 'Please, don't forget us.' I see what they're being sent by the Taliban.

"If I die today, my entire life will have been worth it for what you have helped get done, in just the last three weeks. You have saved well over 5,000 people," he continued.

Fighting back tears, Glenn added, "I ask that you pray for those in the Middle East, that are in the midst of doing work, that a Moses-style miracle will happen. ... There are several people that are in dire need of medical care. Friday, we told you — along with the congressman from Oklahoma [Rep. Markwayne Mullin] who had just returned — [about] a father and two daughters that were blue passport Americans, and a mother who had a permanent residence, a Green Card. The daughter was very ill. And they thought, that if we couldn't get her out of there, that she would lose her legs. I got a call on Saturday morning, that we were too late, that she didn't lose her legs. She lost her life, waiting. There are now two Americans, instead of three."

Glenn showered his audience with gratitude, repeating that "well over 5000" lives have already been saved because of their incredible generosity, but lamented that there are still thousands more people yet to be saved.

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."
