Wait, is Glenn back or isn't he?

For weeks now, Glenn has been following his doctor's advice, staying off the air to prevent further injury to his highly strained vocal chords. Today was the day he was going to finally come back to share what he's learned during his silence. But at the start of radio, only Stu and Jeffy were there, with no Glenn to be seen nor heard.

As luck would have it, after a month of resting his overused vocal chords, today Glenn got "normal person sick," as Stu put it.

Watch Stu and Jeffy's reaction in the video below.

Below is a rush transcription of this segment, it may contain errors:

STU: It is the Glenn Beck Program. I'm Stu in for Glenn today. Along with Jeffy. Who is joining me. Unfortunately. But the person we actually thought would show up for work today, Mr. Glenn Beck, is not here. We've talked about this with Glenn many times. He's a guy who reacts to important issues in the news. He talks about this all the time. We need to do things. Not just talk about the issue and the problem. We need to do something. So Glenn is currently gone -- he's flown over there, I guess, and he's going to murder all of Cecil the lion's relatives with his bare hands. He wants them all dead. Anyone who has ever met Cecil the lion is going to be killed by Glenn. That's where he is now. Is that accurate, Jeffy?

JEFFY: As far as I know, that's happening.

STU: I mean, it's a crazy thing. Glenn has been promoting for weeks that he'll be back today and give you the big update and we're going to push toward 8/28. And it was because of his vocal cords. So he flies back, and then he just gets normal person sick.

JEFFY: Glenn can get normal person sick?

STU: Yeah, I mean, I don't know. And Pat is out as well. This was a scheduled absence for Pat as he's away today. Either that or I've now killed every one off except for Jeffy, who I thought would be the easiest to kill off.

JEFFY: I was going to say. You thought I would be the easiest. Wrong.

STU: You don't know how much poison I've put in your beverages. You're just immune.

JEFFY: I have other medication that takes care of that.

STU: So we do expect Glenn to be back tomorrow. I apologize you're stuck with us today.

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.
