Thanks, Ryan Lochte. You Had a Duty to Represent and You Blew It.

While viewership was down overall for the 2016 Rio Olympics, the games were watched by Glenn and at least two of his co-hosts, including the train wreck that was Ryan Lochte.

"Last week, you were all over me, 'You know what, we should go in there and help them. They're Olympic swimmers.' You want to talk about an enabler: Jeff Fisher," Glenn said Monday on The Glenn Beck Program.

Admittedly, that was before Jeffy had all the facts and made what some might call a "rush to judgment."

"So now you're acting like the president," Stu said.

"I didn't have all the facts," Jeffy admitted.

"He just heard it on TV," Glenn chimed in.

"I don't have all the facts, but the Rio police are acting stupidly," Pat added.

"That's about right," Jeffy agreed.

Now that the facts are in, it's clear who acted stupidly.

"If I was his father, I would be out of my mind," Glenn said.

"And the guy is 32 years old," Pat said.

"That's even worse," Glenn added. "You have a duty. You represent our family. You represent our country. And you go over and do that?"

Glenn continued.

"If I were his dad, I would be saying, 'You left your friend back there. You left your friend back there? Really?'" he said.

"He's going to pay a stiff price. I mean, he's going to lose his sponsorships. And that's probably $10 million worth," Pat said.

As of Monday morning, in fact, Speedo ended its sponsorship of Ryan Lochte, issuing this company statement:

Speedo USA will donate a $50,000 portion of Lochte's fee to Save The Children, a global charity partner of Speedo USA's parent company, for children in Brazil. While we have enjoyed a winning relationship with Ryan for over a decade and he has been an important member of the Speedo team, we cannot condone behavior that is counter to the values this brand has long stood for. We appreciate his many achievements and hope he moves forward and learns from this experience.

Another sponsor, Ralph Lauren, removed Lochte's name and image from the Olympic endorser page on its website.

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.
