The Sad Evolution of Marco Rubio

Marco Rubio is a guy who was a Tea Party guy. He was not an establishment guy. He was running against Charlie Crist --- and we like Marco Rubio and we've watched him. And then he got into office, and he did the Gang of Eight bill. And then he called --- he called Ted Cruz every name under the sun and said, "He's just planted a poison pill in the Gang of Eight bill. He's a liar. Liar. Liar. Liar. Liar." And so people started to believe that Ted Cruz was a liar.

And then he admitted a week ago --- and I'm sorry --- he didn't even admit, he lied about what the Gang of Eight bill was. He came out a week ago and said, "Well, I was only part of the Gang of Eight bill because it was a poison pill."

So wait a minute, Marco.

You accuse Ted Cruz of doing a 38-word amendment to your bill, accused him of a poison pill, which it clearly was, and you called him a liar because it was a poison pill and he didn't come clean with that. At the time, he wouldn't come clean that it was a poison pill. And now you come out, after calling him a liar, and you say the entire bill was a poison pill? Unbelievable.

I want to play something from Spencer Tracy --- in a movie called State of the Union --- where a guy, Spencer Tracy, is running for president. And he gets caught up in running for president, gets caught up with all of the wrong people from the establishment in the Republican Party.

He starts out with the right idea, and he becomes very popular. And then as he's going, he's lost his soul. And his friends reject him. His friends, he comes back, and they're like, "You're not the same guy. You're just part of the problem." And somebody asks him, right before a big broadcast, "What makes you different now than all the rest of them?"

I want you to listen to this, and I want you to think about Marco Rubio. Because Marco Rubio used to say the things that were real. And then he got caught up in the system and the power and the establishment and being popular with all the people like Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush and all the establishment . . . Mitch McConnell, that is, "You can win, man. You can win. Just play our way. If you just do the Gang of Eight bill, you can win." And he's getting worse and worse and worse, to the point where I don't recognize him anymore.

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.
