This morning on radio, Glenn gave some hints from an important phone call he received before going on the air. While Glenn was unable to release any of the details about who called or exactly what it was about, he did share a snippet of content concerning the GOP.
Courtesy of Glenn, we do know that there were "big names involved" and Glenn was "encouraged by who it came from." Glenn did provide some of the message from the mystery caller, saying "Just please tell Glenn to continue to put the heat on. Because the party is split. And half of the party is like please, please, don't stop. So I'm telling you right now, don't stop."
While we will have to settle for not getting the particulars of the call, it does beg to question, is the Republican party really torn and frightened? Are we finally putting pressure on the GOP to rid the pary of progressives? Watch the clip below and decide for yourself.
Rough Transcript Below:
GLENN: Yeah, these aren't Republicans. These are progressives. Let's just stop calling them Republicans. They are progressives. I believe we need to call Jeb Bush not a Republican, a progressive. Because that's what he is. Republicans don't -- they will never admit that they have progressives in their midst. They do. They do. And I will tell you this: You guys know that we got a phone call before we went on the air. Can't release any of the details or what it was about. You know what I'm talking about, Stu?
STU: No idea what you're talking about.
GLENN: You may not have been here at the table. You know what I'm talking about?
PAT: I do.
GLENN: Big names involved. Huge names.
GLENN: Just please tell Glenn to continue to put the heat on. Because the party is split. And half of the party is like, please, please, don't stop. So I'm telling you right now, don't stop. You are -- you are -- we are breaking their back. The progressive Republican Party. We are breaking their back. And they are showing no signs of squirming or anything else. But are you shocked at how high level this was?
GLENN: And actually encouraged by who it came from.
GLENN: Yeah. And you know what I'm talking about now?
GLENN: Shocking how high up and encouraging.
PAT: Yes. Definitely encouraging.
GLENN: We will someday tell you what this is about. But just trust us, this is very encouraging. And so if this person is -- is letting us know, keep the heat on, I'm telling you right now, (music). Mitch McConnell, (music). Wow, we're bad whistlers. Mitch McConnell. Orrin Hatch. Lindsey Graham. Jeff Flake. Thad Cochran. Susan Collins. HEP Mark Kirk. Kelly Ayotte. Ron Johnson. Rob Portman. These ten should -- we should target these in their elections. Oh, my gosh.
STU: He said target. He said target.
PAT: Violent hateful vicious hate speech.
STU: We know what it means.
GLENN: These guys should not be in the Republican Party. Because they're not Republicans. They're progressives.
