'The Princess Bride' exposes Ted Cruz

Glenn was among the first to recognize Senator Ted Cruz's unique ability to remember and repeat things back exactly how he hears them. On radio Tuesday, Glenn and his co-hosts played some "incriminating" audio of Cruz quoting lines from the film, The Princess Bride that maybe, just maybe puts his "audio-graphic" talent into question.

"We're going to expose him as the fraud that he really is," Glenn said, jokingly.

Listen and decide for yourself. Start at 15:26.

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors.

GLENN: So glad you're here.

Ted Cruz won't be. We're going to --

PAT: That's for sure.

GLENN: We're going to expose him as the fraud that he really is.

PAT: Man.

GLENN: Now, we've told you about his terrific memory.

PAT: Man, blows the lid off his campaign.

GLENN: I was just going to take him down.

PAT: Oh, boy.

GLENN: We've done our homework. We want to play a little bit of something that happened in Iowa.

PAT: Mr. Memory, they call him.

GLENN: I want you -- is that what they call him?

PAT: That's what they call him.

GLENN: I want you to listen to, if I may, Mr. Memory and what happened in Iowa.

TED: One of my favorite scenes from that movie is if you remember --

PAT: He's talking about Princess Bride.

TED: -- is dead, and they bring him into Billy Crystal to Miracle Max to get a miracle. And Billy Crystal asks, "Well, you know, what is it that they're telling the story of that he needs to live to be with the Princess Bride?" And he doesn't believe their story. And so he blows -- remember, he says, "He's not dead. He's just mostly dead." And then he blows him full and says, "So what is it that you have worth living for?"


PAT: That's a pretty good imitation. But that's not the point.

GLENN: Yeah, it is. That's not the point.

PAT: Disregard that.

GLENN: He didn't come to us as a great Billy Crystal impersonator, did he?

PAT: No, he did not. He came to us as Mr. Memory.

GLENN: Mr. Memory.

STU: Uh-huh.

TED: And Wesley goes, "True love." And Inigo Montoya goes, "You see, he said true love. There's nothing more noble than true love." And Miracle Max goes, "You're right. You're right. There's nothing better than true love, except a nice mutton, lettuce, and tomato sandwich, where the mutton is lean -- (laughter) but that's not what he said. What he said was to blave. And everyone knows to blave means to bluff. And so what happened was he was playing poker, and he was bluffing."



"Shut up, witch."

"I'm not a witch. I'm your wife. After what you just said, I wish I wasn't.

The problem is he's afraid. Ever since Prince Humperdinck fired him, he's been afraid."

"I told you not to say that name."

"What name? What name?"

"Humperdinck, Humperdinck, Humperdinck."

"I can't hear you!"

GLENN: It's all fun and games at this point. But we want you to listen to the actual film.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: Princess Bride.

MIRACLE MAX: Look who knows so much, huh. Well, it just so happens that your friend here is only mostly dead. There's a big difference between mostly dead and all dead.

Please, open his mouth.

Now, mostly dead is slightly alive. Now, all dead, well, with all dead, there's usually only one thing that you can do.

INIGO: What's that?

MIRACLE MAX: Go through his clothes and look for loose change.

Hey. Hello, in there. Hey. What's so important? What you got here that's worth living for?

VOICE: True love.

INIGO: True love. You heard him? You could not ask for a more noble cause than that.

MIRACLE MAX: Sonny, true love is the greatest thing in the world. Except for a nice MLT, a mutton, lettuce, and tomato sandwich, when the mutton is nice and lean and the tomato is ripe. They're so perky. I love that.

But that's not what he said!

He distinctly said "to blave." And, as we all know, "to blave" means "to bluff," huh?

GLENN: Stop. Did you hear it?

PAT: Yeah, several lines left out.

GLENN: He distinctly -- he distinctly said to blave. He didn't say "distinctly."

PAT: No, he did not. He left out that word.

GLENN: Mr. Memory completely left out that word.

PAT: This guy is such a liar.


Oh, man.

GLENN: Now, go ahead and play the rest.

MIRACLE MAX: -- playing cards and he cheated.

VOICE: Liar. Liar. Liar!

MIRACLE MAX: Get back, witch.

VOICE: I'm not a witch. I'm your wife. But after what you just said, I'm not even sure I want to be that anymore.

PAT: Okay. All of that is exactly accurate. Isn't it? It's not?

STU: No. Because her line of I don't want to be that anymore. He says something slightly different.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. So there's two things.

PAT: Two words now.

GLENN: This guy can't fit in front of Putin. He couldn't sit in front of Putin.

MIRACLE MAX: You never had it so good.

VALERIE: True love. He said true love, Max. My God. He's afraid. Ever since Prince Humperdinck fired him, his confidence is shattered.

MIRACLE MAX: Why did you say that name? You promised me that you would never say that name.

VALERIE: What? Humperdinck. Humperdinck. Humperdinck. Humperdinck. Humperdinck. Humperdinck.

MIRACLE MAX: I'm not listening.

VALERIE: True love, life expiring and you don't have the decency to say why you won't --

GLENN: He didn't say smoodink (phonetic) or whatever --

PAT: That's three words he left out.

GLENN: Three words.

STU: Now, I can understand him shortening for time reasons. You may not be able to do every line.

GLENN: But this is an important issue.

STU: Come on. It's more than that, Ted. Resign from your Senate seat.

GLENN: You call Ted Cruz's office and tell him we don't want anymore of his Mr. Memory tricks around here.


STU: John Kasich has just launched a super PAC to get that massage across.

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: Marco Rubio has new spots on him. Did you hear his reenactment of the Princess Bride?

PAT: It wasn't exactly accurate. He doesn't have an audiographic memory.

GLENN: Mr. Memory may be Mr. Lies.


POLL: Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

Just one day after Hamas’s surprise attack on Israel, which left over 1,400 people Israelis dead, 34 different student groups from Harvard University wrote a joint statement pinning the blame of Hamas' terrorist attack on Israel. In the following days after publishing this callous statement, these students staged a walkout and rallied in support of the Palestinians. As Glenn has discussed, this is not an isolated event, and campuses across the country have hosted similar rallies where antisemitic jargon like "we don't want no Jew state" and "globalize the intifada" is freely spewed.

Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

While the Universities have not officially backed any of these rallies or student groups that organized them, they haven't stopped them either, which raises the question: should they? On one hand, these are American students in American Universities, who are protected by the First Amendment. On the other hand, history tells us how dangerous antisemitism is if left unchecked; and what of the rights of Jewish students to be safe on the campuses they pay to attend? Let us know what you think in the poll below:

Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests? 

Would you feel safe if your child attended a University that allowed pro-Hamas protests?

 Should Universities allow pro-Israel protests?

Is pro-Hamas rhetoric protected by the First Amendment?

POLL: What do YOU think Israel should do about Gaza?

Should Israel take over Gaza after defeating Hamas? This contentious historical question has resurfaced amid Israel's retaliatory airstrikes in Gaza following Hamas' terror attacks, which resulted in the greatest death of Jews since the Holocaust. Biden and the global elites have warned Israel against occupation of the Palestinian territory. When asked on 60 Minutes if he would support the Israeli occupation of Gaza, Biden said, “I think it would be a big mistake.” Today Glenn responded to Biden’s answer: “I don't think it's a mistake to occupy."

This has been a long-standing, polarizing issue that is now more relevant than ever, and we want to hear YOUR thoughts. Let us know in the poll below:

Would you support an Israeli occupation of Gaza?

Do you think the Israeli airstrikes in Gaza are justified?

Do you think a two-state solution is still possible?

Funding IRAN?! Here are the TOP 5 reasons Joe Biden should be IMPEACHED

On September 12th, the House announced an official impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden with allegations of abuse of power, obstruction, and corruption. Naturally, the media quickly jumped to the President’s aid claiming that “there is no evidence to support these claims” and that the whole affair is a witch hunt.

If you’ve been listening to Glenn, you know that this is simply not the case. Biden has been committing impeachment-worthy deeds before he even stepped foot into the Oval Office—there’s no shortage of evidence to justify this inquiry. Here are 5 scathing reasons why Biden should be impeached:

He was responsible for the Afghanistan withdrawal disaster.

The Biden administration began with the US's disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan. Under his watch, Biden left thousands of US citizens and allies stranded in the Taliban's hostile regime. Countless Afghan allies have been murdered by the Taliban due to the Biden administration's negligence.

He was involved with Hunter Biden's illicit foreign business dealings.

There is clear evidence that Joe Biden was more than aware of his son Hunter's foreign business dealings. From suspicious money laundering through the Biden family's accounts to Joe's involvement with important business meetings within Hunter's company, there is mounting evidence to warrant an impeachment inquiry.

He lied about his involvement with Hunter's business dealings.

Not only did Biden involve himself with his son's less-than-legal foreign business ventures, but he lied to the American people about it too, claiming he had NO KNOWLEDGE of what was going on.

He failed to protect the Southern border, and actively made it worse.

Biden singlehandedly turned the Southern border into the worst illegal immigration crisis in US history. He reversed many policies set in place by the Trump administration, resulting in 2.3 million illegal immigrants flooding into the US under his watch, a historic high.

Biden reversed the Trump-era policy that halted all funds going into Iran. The Wall Street Journal revealed the smoking-gun evidence proving that Iran trained AND funded Hamas before its gruesome terror attacks against Israel. Moreover, shortly before the attacks, the Biden administration unfroze $6 BILLION dollars of Iran's assets as a part of a prisoner swap. On top of this, Biden resumed $200 million worth of "humanitarian aid" to Gaza that Trump had ended—because the money was being used to buy weapons for Hamas.

Top 5 economic milestones that show HOW BAD Bidenomics has made the economy

SAUL LOEB / Contributor | Getty Images

From groceries to house prices, everything seems to get more expensive, and you can thank Biden for that. Glenn recently exposed the truth about 'Bidenomics' and the havoc it has wrought on the American economy. Here are five economic milestones during the Biden administration that expose the glaring track record of "Bidenomics:"

In July 2022, the inflation rate hit 9.1 percent, a 40-year record high.

In June 2022, gas hit an all time record high of $5 a gallon for the national average.

61 percent of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck as of this September.

Interest rates reached a 15-year high at 5.25 percent and are still increasing.

Americans have $1 trillion in collective credit card debt, in part due to food/staple pieces being very high.
