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.

Blaze TV hosts Glenn Beck , Chad Prather, and Steven Crowder weighed-in with similar but different thoughts on the fascism associated with canceling Dr. Seuss.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Dr. Seuss books that have been cancelled due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity.

Chad Prather approached the issue from a comedic perspective, stating that "Dr. Seuss is dead and could not be reached for comment."

Steven Crowder explained that Dr. Seuss books were banned for being offensive and insensitive to some. So Steven decided to parody the six banned children's books with progressively titled and hilariously inappropriate versions.

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
