Breastfeeding in a broom closet?

For some reason, a long and passionate debate broke out on radio this morning about breastfeeding. What could lead to such a debate? It turns out a mother was asked to pump her breast milk in a broom closet at LAX because they didn’t have the proper facilities in place. Glenn has the story and reaction on radio.

New mother Haley Picchini said she had to use a messy and crowded broom closet to pump her breast milk before boarding her flight. "I was mortified. I was scared. I didn’t want to do anything that would endanger my baby," she said.

The story kicked off a breastfeeding debate on the radio show, with Glenn defending public breastfeeding as long as there is a degree of discretion.

"I just don't have a problem with the nursing mom," Glenn said. "I've always seen someone take a baby and put a blanket over themselves. And they're very discreet. And that's fine."

"You don't need to show me the milk mustache from your nipple. But you can be discreet. And nobody should have a problem with a mom who is nursing and trying to be discreet," Glenn added.

Pat countered that there is a movement out there to normalize breastfeeding to the age of six or seven and older, and on top of that not to have any level of discretion when it happens.

"You know what's worse than the militants who think it has to be done any time, anywhere, any way?" Pat asked. "Look, we're all dads. We have sympathy for breast-feeding moms. Let's all be reasonable and do the right thing. It needs a little common sense in the argument. But what's worse than that is the new thing now where some are breast-feeding at five, six, seven."

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.
