Sean Hannity Gives Ted Cruz a Hard Time— 'You Gotta Stop'

A caller on Glenn's radio program Wednesday shared how livid she was about the treatment Ted Cruz received from Sean Hannity the night prior.

"I think that was staged, just so he could let the senator have it," the caller (Teresa) said. "But you got to get up pretty early in the morning to put one over on Ted Cruz. I was so proud of him."

Glenn played an audio clip of the interview and offered insight on a deeper reason behind Hannity's frustration. Watch or read the transcript below.

GLENN: In case you missed it, here's what happened.

SEAN: That people are telling me that they find this whole process confusing. You know, I can read the articles, for example, about -- you know, people want to know what actually happened in Georgia this weekend where people that I guess on the first ballot are going to Donald Trump, but representatives of yours talked to them and are persuading them to vote for you on a second ballot. That is an important question because I think most people would like to know how this works. And I really am asking you, it's more than a process question, it's an integrity-of-the-election question.

PAT: Oh, for gosh sakes.

SEAN: And everybody is asking me this question. So I'm giving you an opportunity to explain it.

PAT: That is unreal.

TED: Sean, the only people asking this question are the hard-core Donald Trump supporters --

SEAN: Senator, why do you do this? Every time I ask a -- No. You gotta stop. Every time I have you on the air and I ask a legitimate question --

PAT: No, Sean, you have to stop. He's got to stop pretending.

GLENN: Hang on just a second.

PAT: Listen to the tone. Listen to his tone. It is obvious he is battling for Trump right now. It's obvious.

GLENN: But what he's saying is a lot of people are asking this question and they want to know why somebody on the second ballot -- because most people don't understand the ballot process.

PAT: Hannity knows the process.

GLENN: I know. I know. But it's our job and his job and Ted's job and anybody who is involved -- Donald's job, to explain that. It is not unfair to go and say, "Okay. You have to vote the first time."

But let me make a case. So the second time you vote, if there's no clear winner, the second time you vote, we'd like to get your winner here. That's the way the system has been set up. And it's always been that way.

STU: Right. The system is set up to say, do the people have a clear winner, who they really want? If the answer to that is no, it goes to the delegates.

GLENN: It goes to the delegates. And the delegates all have been voted on by the people.

PAT: You have to have a way of finding that person that gets to 1237.

GLENN: Correct.

PAT: Because you have to get to 1237.

GLENN: You have to do it through the votes by the delegates.

PAT: Right.

GLENN: And that's why -- that's why the Ted Cruz thing has been so effective. Because he has gotten his delegates elected in many of the states. They're elected by the people.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: And so he got his delegates elected. So his delegates are voting for Donald Trump in some of these states on the first ballot. Because that's what they have to do. But in the second ballot, they can vote for whoever they want. Sometimes in the second, sometimes in the third, sometimes in the fourth. But that's the way the system works.

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
