Media focuses on all the wrong parts of the DNC debate

One of the biggest headlines that came out following Saturday's DNC presidential debate in Manchester, New Hampshire was that Hillary Clinton was late getting back to the debate stage during a bathroom break.

Why are we even talking about this?

Pitch-hitting for Glenn on radio Monday, Buck Sexton shared his feelings on the matter.

"Places covered this as if this is something that needed to be covered because the debate was so boring and useless," Buck said. "That's right. You have major news outlets that are covering a potty break."

BUCK: One of the biggest headlines you see is that Hillary was late back to the debate stage. Then we find out it's because, you know, as one does during a debate, she had to have a bathroom break. And you could say, Buck, why are we talking about this? And that's a totally fair question. We're talking about it because the Boston Globe and many other places covered this as if this is something that needed to be covered because the debate was so boring and useless. That's right. You have major news outlets that are covering a potty break. What happened with this potty break? Why did the potty break go so long? Does anybody know how far away the potty was from the stage?

Ain't no potty like a Hillary debate potty because the Hillary debate potty is far away.

This is nonsense. And I'm reading this from the Boston Globe. They're talking about this. This is something we needed to know more about. We needed more coverage. That's how desperate they are for content though. This is the point. There's nothing else. The most exciting parts of this debate -- I already played for you the audio of Bernie saying, "Hillary, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to do it. You know, it was a staffer." And then also that she was late back to the stage because she went to the restroom. I mean, you can't make this stuff up.

It's like they did a count of how many times a candidate would cough or something because it's not supposed to be about substance. And everybody knows it. This gives Bernie a platform. All Hillary has to do is show up. Just sit there and be Hillary. And everyone goes, oh, she is so poised -- I also love the sort of after action reports you get: Oh, she's so poised. It's wonderful.

Then there's Martin O'Malley, standing there just being Martin. Just not really -- we're not sure why he's there. He's not sure why he's there. Does it matter? Nope, doesn't matter.

Hillary is going in with a huge lead. Hillary is the nominee. We know that much. And the media is already going to have to try to find ways to make this more interesting, I would think. Because even the scant coverage -- you'll notice not a lot of coverage of her. You'll notice the media wants to go wall-to-wall Trump all the time. Whether you're a Trump supporter or not, I'm just telling you, Democrat media, center left media, left left media, all Trump, all day, all the time. Part of that is ratings driven. But I think we should all be clear that only part of that is ratings driven.

They believe, those who will also stand behind Hillary and do whatever they can to push her presidency, that the more coverage of Trump in the long-term, the less likely that there will be a Republican sitting in the White House after the 2016 election.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
