Glenn uncovers Ted Cruz's secret skill allowing him to quote Mitch McConnell exactly

During his visit to Glenn's studio last week for a one on one sit down conversation for TheBlaze TV, Senator Ted Cruz revealed something about the way his brain works most people probably didn't know about.

The skill? "Audiographic memory."

Glenn shared the details of what he learned on radio Wednesday.

"We had this really deep, philosophical kind of conversation about what it means to connect with people," Glenn said.

As Glenn's listeners might attest, Glenn told Cruz he connects with people with the heart, through stories. Cruz on the other hand said he tends to connect with the head, relying on his ability to remember and articulate all kinds of facts.

To that, Glenn questioned Cruz, "You have a photographic memory?"

"No, 'audiographic memory.' It's different," was Cruz's response. "I can remember every conversation exactly the way it happened."

Cruz then explained to Glenn that's what allowed him to put Mitch McConnell on the hot seat.

"He said, 'I can tell you exactly what Mitch McConnell said, and I can tell you it's exact,'" Glenn said.

While Glenn said he thinks having "audiographic memory is a massive plus," Cruz is apparently not comfortable talking about it.

"He's like, 'I just feel like everybody is going to think I'm a robot.' And I'm like, 'Ted, this is not a cross or a burden,'" Glenn said, "This is a good thing!"

GLENN: So when -- when Ted told me this -- and, again, this is just a conversation we're having around the stage here before or after the interview. This is not a -- you know, this is just us sitting here chatting before takes. And I said, "You have a photographic memory?" He said, "No, audiographic memory. It's different." He said, "But when I hear something, and they say, this is what this bill means," he said, "as long as I've heard that bill, I can remember every conversation exactly the way it happened. And I can -- what comes down in my head comes down as file 305, and it's there."

PAT: That's why he could rattle off word-for-word what Mitch McConnell said to him.

GLENN: Correct. He used that as an example. He said, "I can tell you exactly what Mitch McConnell said, and I can tell you it's exact."

PAT: And that's why nobody disputed him. Because they know he's right.

GLENN: Correct. Because they know he's right. So he has this audiographic memory. And he said, "What happens is, when somebody says -- I always look prepared because when somebody says, well, this is what we're going to do." And I'll say, "Well, no, you're actually wrong for these six reasons." He said, "Because that's the way I think." He said, "File 305 comes down, and I can remember it, and six things pop out immediately. And I know, they're wrong six ways. And it makes me look like I'm just blustering. Because who can remember six things out of that?" He's like I can.

PAT: That's impressive though. That's incredible.

GLENN: What he was saying though -- and I was like, "Ted -- he's telling me, and my head is spinning. And he's telling me. "So like when I get down there -- you know, I pause or something because I'm trying to think, how can I say this differently because -- I can repeat what happened to me exactly the same way as it happened every single time." And he's like, "I just feel like everybody is going to think I'm a robot." And I'm like, "Ted, this is not a cross or a burden that the president -- this is a good thing." And he doesn't -- he's not comfortable talking about it. I guess somebody in the Wall Street Journal pointed this out.

JEFFY: Yeah, they talked about him winning the senatorship here in Texas and doing his 21-hour monologue. And they called it his near photographic memory. But as a side note, it also talks about how in high school he traveled around Texas reciting the Constitution and the words of the Founding Fathers. So, I mean, he knows it pretty good.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Yeah, as long as it's been said to him out loud. As long as it's been read out loud, I think even if he reads it out loud, he told me that it imprints on him an audio file. That's -- I mean, are you kidding me? To be able to sit down -- if you could just watch all the tapes of Vladimir Putin, nobody is getting around him, man. You're sitting down, "Actually, no, that's not what you said." Yes, it is. "No, it's not. No, it's not." To have someone with a photographic or, in his case, an audiographic memory is a massive plus. A massive plus.

PAT: If I had to guess, I would think the only other president to probably have something like that would be Thomas Jefferson.

GLENN: Probably.

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.

The less-than-favorable reaction to Caitlyn Jenner's bid for governor of California as a Republican has shown that leftists and so-called "transgender rights activist" care more about political party than actual transgender rights. Despite the fact that if she wins, Jenner would be the first trans governor in our nation's history — and prove that Republicans aren't 'transphobic' — Leftist activists would rather back Gavin Newsom — a cisgender, white male.

"Make no mistake: we can't wait to elect a #trans governor of California. But @Caitlyn_Jenner spent years telling the #LGBTQ+ community to trust Donald Trump. We saw how that turned out. Now she wants us to trust her? Hard pass," tweeted Equality California, one of the state's largest LGBTQ-rights groups.

"With all due respect, @Caitlyn_Jenner, you are running as a Republican?! Republicans deny your existence and are trying to erase trans youth. HELL NO," tweeted leftist activist and actress Alyssa Milano.

"Well done Caitlyn Jenner, running for governor wins you the one medal you never got: stupidest mother***ker on earth. Running as a Trump Republican & entering a world that hates you," tweeted "Sons of Anarchy" star Ron Perlman.

In this clip from the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere discussed the Left's hostile reaction to Jenner's candidacy for California governor and agreed that leftist trans activists are showing themselves to be more "leftists" than "trans activists."

"If Caitlyn Jenner did, let's say, run for governor and win as a Republican, wouldn't that go a long way to advance what [trans rights activists'] goal supposedly is? Like, if you really believe Republicans hate trans people and what you want is for society to have trans people accepted more broadly, what better way to accomplish that than having a Republican trans candidate?" Stu asked.

"Yeah, see, but you just said the key words: 'If you really believe.' They don't really believe anything. I don't think they even really believe that Republicans hate gay people. I don't think they actually believe that. That's just a slogan that's been drilled in their head," Glenn said. "It doesn't have anything to do with race or gender, or really anything else. It has everything to do with politics. That's it."

The New York Times reported this week that U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate and former Secretary of State, John Kerry, allegedly leaked classified Israeli military information to one of its biggest foes: Iran. So, where's the media outcry?

Donald Trump Jr. joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the allegations against Kerry and the corporate media's blatant hypocrisy and the Left's double standards.

"It's sort of amazing what you can get away with if you're a Democrat," Trump Jr. said. "I would think, Glenn, these people would lose their minds if someone in the Trump administration did this."
