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?"
"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.
