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.

On "Glenn TV" this week, Megyn Kelly, host of the "Megyn Kelly Show," told Glenn Beck she believes the Democrats' talk of unity is "all nonsense" and forecasted the "death of journalism" under a Biden administration.

Megyn cited President Joe Biden's unwillingness to make concessions that would help unify Democrats and Republicans as an example of how much he actually cares about unity, and added that, while she's all for lowering the political temperature in America, she also believes there are some personal freedoms that are worth fighting for.

"What's happening substantively is worth fighting for and it's not going to go away just because [Biden] gave a nice speech," Megyn said.

"I will object. I will protect my family and what I think is right over Joe Biden's need for unity, which is false anyway. 'Unify behind my agenda' is not a real call for unity," she added.

Megyn said she believes the Left has reached too far and "awakened a sleeping giant" in reference to the silent majority who should speak up, speak out, and refuse to be silenced any longer.

As the Senate prepares for former President Trump's second impeachment trial, many are asking whether it's constitutional to try a president after leaving office. Alan Dershowitz, lawyer and host of the of "The Dershow," joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to talk about the legal battles Trump still faces.

Dershowitz said he believes the Senate doesn't have the authority to convict Trump, now that he's a private citizen again, and thus can't use impeachment to bar him from running for office again.

"The Constitution says the purpose of impeachment is to remove somebody. He [Trump] is out of office. There's nothing left to do.
It doesn't say you can impeach him to disqualify him for the future. It says, if you remove him you can then add disqualification, but you can't just impeach somebody to disqualify them," Dershowitz said.

"The Senate can't try ordinary citizens. So once you're an ordinary citizen, you get tried only in the courts, not in the Senate. So it's clearly unconstitutional," he added.

Dershowitz, who served on Trump's legal team during the first impeachment trial, also discussed whether he thinks Trump is legally (or even just ethically) responsible for the Capitol riot earlier this month, and whether those engaging in violence could be considered "domestic terrorists."

A new, shocking CBS News poll shows that the majority of Americans believe they're facing a new enemy: other Americans.

More than two-thirds of poll respondents said they believe democracy in the U.S. is "threatened," and 54% said "other people in America" are the "biggest threat to the American way of life," rather than economic factors, viruses, natural disasters, or foreign actors.

Will it be possible to unite our nation with statistics like that? On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and Stu discussed the poll numbers and what they mean for our future.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.
