Is Glenn binge watching House of Cards? Not really, but he is catching up on the Netflix original series, and finds it fascinating.
"If you haven't watched House of Cards, you need to," Glenn said Tuesday on The Glenn Beck Program. "I think the writers of the show are patriots. I really do. These guys are taking on the Democrats. Here's progressive liberals that are taking on the Democrats in this, and they're exposing the whole game."
Glenn watched a speech from season three in which President Frank Underwood gives a speech on entitlements and jobs.
"I saw this speech that President Frank Underwood gives, and I'm thinking to myself, 'While I don't agree with his program, boy, would I love to hear a president give this speech,'" Glenn said.

"Frank doesn't believe any of this," Glenn clarified. "He's just the worst of the worst, and he is just playing the American people. But if somebody actually believed this --- in fact, if Donald Trump would have come out and given a speech like this, he would unite the entire country behind him.
The American people need a moral leader they can look up to. We used to hold each other to a higher moral standard, looking for the good in people, forgiving their mistakes and lifting people up. Now, we're more likely to tear each other apart, looking for faults rather than goodness.
"Society is tearing down all of our heroes," Glenn said. "The secret to keeping our society together, the secret of being able to hold on to the Republic, as Franklin said — 'We gave you a Republic, if you can keep it," — the secret of keeping it is actually wanting to have a higher moral code."
The secrets to America's success are following a higher moral code and believing your rights come from God — not the government.
"You believe those two things, we fix America," Glenn said. "We save the Republic."
