Ahmed the 'clock kid' apparently so 'traumatized' he has to go to the White House

Since being arrested for bringing a homemade clock that resembled a bomb to school in Irving, Texas earlier this month, 14-year-old Ahmed Mohammed's parents have hired high-profile attorneys to pursue legal rights for their "highly traumatized" son.

On radio Wednesday, Glenn didn't hesitate to bring some humor to the mind-blowing irony of the situation.

"He's so severely traumatized, he has to go to the White House and meet with the president," Glenn said. "I wish I could be traumatized like that, because I would like to sit in the White House and talk to this president for a few minutes."

GLENN: Bond, also a community activist, who previously sued the Irving mayor for defamation, went on to claim that Mohammed felt a school administrator had been terrorizing him since the sixth grade. So we have Anthony Bond, who is testifying on behalf of this boy. But he's also a school activist. A community activist. So we've got the Barack Obama of our little neighborhood here testifying.

Among the Muslim bashing allegations against the administrator is that he hindered Mohamed from praying in school and dished out unfair punishments. Kubiak, now retired, reconnected with Mohamed months after his final day in Sam Houston Middle School, speaking on the phone shortly after the arrest, turned him into a celebrity.

His former teacher was told, quote, I told you one day that I was going to be -- and you told me yourself, I was going to be really big on the internet one day, end quote. Mohamed's parents have since hired two high-profile attorneys to pursue their severely traumatized son's legal rights. In the aftermath of the --

PAT: Severely traumatized.

JEFFY: Oh, my gosh.

PAT: Did you know he had to sit in the station for two hours?

GLENN: He's so severely traumatized, he has to go to the White House and meet with the president.

PAT: Yeah, that's how traumatized he is.

GLENN: I wish I could be traumatized like that, because I would like to sit in the White House and talk to this president for a few minutes.

STU: Can you bring in a clock so maybe --

GLENN: I'm thinking about doing it.

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.
