Marco Rubio Earns 'Honor Points' With Glenn

When Glenn was an alcoholic, the thing he missed the most was his integrity.

"As I got to the end of my former life where I realized I was a mess, I realized I had to admit my mistakes, ask for forgiveness, and start all over," Glenn said on radio Tuesday.

He went on to share an example of integrity working well for one presidential candidate in particular---Marco Rubio.

Listen to the segment from radio or read the transcript below.

GLENN: Let me give you a great example of integrity working well. Marco Rubio. I like him. I like him a lot. I really disagree with him on policies, especially when it comes to the NSA. Really, strongly disagree with him. I don't necessarily trust him on the border. But I like him. I think he's a decent, honorable man. I just don't agree with his policies.

But I think they're genuine to the bone. I think he believes what he says. Would you agree with that, Pat? You and Stu you guys didn't really know until you sat down and watched him up close, you couldn't really relate to that, that he's a genuine, decent man.

STU: I've seen him be genuine in a couple of interviews where he didn't have to be. Abortion was one of the topics where he took a position he didn't have to take to impress a conservative crowd and took it anyway. So, yes, I generally like him.

GLENN: Would you say that too, Pat?

PAT: Yes. Generally.

GLENN: He's an honorable man. Let me give you an example. Commercial just comes out, he uses me in the back of my car. We just had left a rally. I'm not endorsing Marco Rubio by any stretch of the imagination. Marco's team would like it to look like I'm endorsing him because anytime you can shave a point off of anybody -- you know, a fraction of a point, if it could mean ten voters in Iowa, that's a big deal.

And so they're -- they used it, I think, to make it look like, you know, I was endorsing Marco Rubio. And it was just not right. And they didn't call and ask for permission. And if they would have asked for permission, I probably would have done it. I probably would have said, "Yeah, sure." Because I said it and I stand by it. So we asked them to take it down. And not only did they take it down. They just issued a statement -- and I want to show you. This is integrity.

Shoot. Now, where is it?

(chuckling)

Crap. Now I don't have it. Yeah, here it is. Here it is.

So here's what he wrote. They wrote: Earlier, a video was posted using Facebook videos that were posted by Glenn Beck on his Facebook page and Tomi Lauren from TheBlaze. Senator Rubio was honored by the kind words from these parties.

We have reached out to Glenn and TheBlaze team to apologize for utilizing their intellectual property without prior approval. Fortunately, Mr. Beck and his respective team know that we share much in common in how we view the world, and they have graciously accepted our apologies.

Mr. Beck did ask us to reiterate that what he said in those videos were a true and accurate reflection of his and Ms. Lauren's positions. Mr. Beck does, in fact, believe that if Senator Rubio was the presidential nominee, he does believe the senator would prevail against Mrs. Clinton.

The statement, however, was not meant to be an endorsement of the senator, but rather, after spending time with the senator, both in studio and at a really, his perspective on what would happen in a theoretical matchup.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: That is honorable.

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.
