Jake Tapper Shocked at Glenn's Truthful Tweet

The Context

One of Glenn's tweets during last night's GOP debate raised a few eyebrows, including CNN's Jake Tapper. Glenn's honest assessment of Rubio's performance --- 'Rubio is killing it' --- threw Tapper for a loop, prompting him to tweet 'Interesting; Beck is a major Cruz supporter.' In turn Glenn tweeted back, 'Not "interesting Jake, just honest."'

The sequence of tweets went like this:

Why Is Telling the Truth Shocking?

Apparently there is so much dishonesty in the media, it's actually a story if someone tells the truth. Not only did Jake Tapper comment on Glenn's tweet, but The Hill and Politico ran stories as well.

"He had a great night," Glenn said Friday on The Glenn Beck Program. "And how come I can't say that?"

Glenn went on to share his perspective on both Rubio's and Cruz's debate performances.

“I personally put them as a tie for first,” Glenn said. “One appealed to your heart. One appealed to your head. Cruz was much better on substance. Rubio was much better on zingers. It felt good to watch Marco Rubio. But it was good --- I mean, it was real substantive. And that's not taking anything away from Marco Rubio because he had some good substantive stuff. But he was better at zingers. Cruz was better at substance.”

Cruz Welcomes Rubio Joining the Fight

Cruz also answered honestly to Jake Tapper's post-debate question about Glenn's tweet.

“Listen, I actually agree Marco did a good job tonight,” Cruz responded. “He did something tonight that he's never done, which he actually for the first time took on Donald Trump. And I'm glad he did. Listen, Marco is not my enemy. Marco and I are friends. Marco and I would both make a much better candidate and a much better president than would Donald.”

Cruz's honest answer wasn't lost on co-host Stu Burguiere.

“It doesn't benefit him to say that Marco Rubio would be a competent president. But he said that he would be a much better president than Donald Trump because he's being freaking honest. The same thing you want out of a talk show host, you should at least require that much out of your president,” Stu said. 

Common Sense Bottom Line

The real story here is the media finds honesty shocking and worthy of coverage.

“The media just doesn't get it. Just doesn't get it. I tweeted back to Jake Tapper immediately. It's not interesting. It's just honest. That's it.” Glenn said.

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.
