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.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
