CNN Defuses Clinton's Response After Weekend Terror Attacks

In the wake of this weekend's terror attacks, both major presidential candidates made comments. Naturally, the MSM couldn't wait to compare their responses.

Here's what the candidates said:

Clinton: "I have been briefed about the bombings in New York and New Jersey and the attack in Minnesota. Obviously we need to do everything we can to support our first responders, also to pray for the victims. We have to let this investigation unfold. We have been in touch with various officials, including the mayor's office in New York, to learn what they are discovering as they conduct this investigation. And I will have more to say about it when we have some facts."

Trump: "Just before I got off the plane, a bomb went off in New York and nobody knows exactly what's going on."

While both candidates used a variation of the word "bomb," Trump was lambasted while Hillary was praised for showing reserve. CNN reported that "Trump immediately said a bomb went off while Clinton called for support of first responders and letting the investigation unfold.

CNN went the extra mile by removing from audio the first sentence in Hillary's statement that used the word "bombings."

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors:

You know, I will tell you that CNN played a really interesting game over the weekend. Donald Trump came out right away and said it was a bombing. You know, the bombing in New York, instead of an explosion.

And the press immediately said, "Oh, what do you mean bombing? Bombing, you can't say bombing."

PAT: Controversy. Uh-huh.

GLENN: Yeah. I know. Stupid controversy. But what happened was Hillary Clinton was asked about Donald Trump's comments. How do you have this? You have the CNN or do you have the raw?

PAT: I have the raw.

GLENN: Okay. So I want you to hear this in its entirety. This is the raw comments Hillary Clinton made on her plane at about a quarter to midnight on Saturday.

HILLARY: I've been briefed about the bombings in New York and New Jersey and the attack in Minnesota.

Obviously, we need to do everything we can to support our first responders. Also, to pray for the victims. We have to let this investigation unfold. We've been in touch with various officials, including the mayor's office in New York to learn what they are discovering as they conduct this investigation. And I'll have more to say about it when we actually know the facts.

VOICE: Secretary Clinton, do you have any reaction to the fact that Donald Trump immediately upon taking the statement tonight called the explosion in New York a "bomb"?

GLENN: Okay. Stop. First question: Do you have any comment that Donald Trump called this a "bomb"?

STU: It's unbelievable.

PAT: By the way, 30 seconds after she called it "bombings."

STU: Bombings.

PAT: She did use the -ing though -- -ings. So...

GLENN: Yes. Okay. So you have that. Now, let me show you what CNN cut out.

PAT: Okay.

GLENN: Stop it when -- go ahead.

PAT: Okay.

HILLARY: I've been briefed about the bombings in New York and New Jersey and the attack in Minnesota.

GLENN: Stop. That's what they edited out.

(laughter)

GLENN: But there's -- what?

PAT: So they took out the fact that she called them "bombings."

GLENN: They took out the fact that she called them "bombings."

PAT: And then she can bash Trump for calling them "bombings."

GLENN: Right.

JEFFY: Huh.

STU: Now, how is that the fascinating part of this story?

GLENN: Well, the other fascinating part of the story is that she also said we have to support our first responders, you know, the woman who is standing with Black Lives Matter.

PAT: Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: Meeting with the heads of Black Lives Matter. That's different than saying, "Hey -- because I know what's coming my way -- hey, let's listen to the people, not the leaders. We know what the leaders want. We disagree with the leaders. But the people who might be caught up in it, let's listen to them."

She's meeting with the leaders of Black Lives Matter. We know what they want. Death to the police.

PAT: The leaders -- and Marxism.

GLENN: Yes. Yes.

PAT: Communism. Their whole manifesto is about that.

GLENN: Yes.

JEFFY: Yes.

STU: Yes. I mean, it is straight-out communist.

GLENN: So what is your interesting part of this?

STU: Well, I mean, first of all, it's a terrorist -- ongoing terrorist event. And what does the news do but take it -- I mean, we just addressed this. It's not the most important thing here, the election results. But, again, to try to capture Donald Trump in some misstatement, they'd rather focus on that than focus on the actual attack.

GLENN: They have to. They have to.

STU: No, they don't. I promise they don't.

GLENN: No, no. No, no. And I don't mean it that way. I mean, they are playing for a team. So they have to.

STU: Yeah, I guess.

GLENN: You know, if we're -- by the way, anybody who thinks we're for Clinton, we wouldn't be bringing this up if we were playing for a team. We will do the same thing to Donald Trump that we'll do to her. When they're wrong, we'll point it out.

STU: What a crazy new approach to radio.

GLENN: I know.

STU: Wow, we're inventing a whole new format here.

GLENN: I know. They have to do this because they're playing for a team, and terror is going to work to Donald Trump's strange.

STU: You're right. So as a team member, they go and try to say, "Well, this is an example of Donald Trump being erratic. This is him acting without information. What a crazy person this guy is." Instead of talking about the fact that -- I mean, this is -- you know, terrorism in and of itself shouldn't help one or the other candidates. It's about how they react to it. And, you know, the idea that one of the main divisions in this election has been, "Should we let more people into the country from terrorism-ridden areas, like, I don't know, Afghanistan?" And Trump's position the entire time -- well, the entire time, Trump's position has covered people who would be born in areas such as Afghanistan. We all know it's morphed a few times. But the entire time, it would restrict immigration from those areas.

So I mean it's a pretty clear example of something that should work in Trump's favor. And you see the way the media is handling it. It's ridiculous.

GLENN: Oh, it's going to help Trump, the way the media is handling it. Because look, everybody knows -- everybody knows -- left and right, everybody knows, not all Muslims are terrorist. But almost all Muslims are terrorist. Currently, the way -- what we're fighting right now. That doesn't mean that there's not a terrorist from time to time at an abortion clinic that has been a Christian. Although, give me the number of those, Stu.

STU: Off the top of my head, I don't remember. But I think --

PAT: I think the number this year is zero.

STU: This year, it's zero.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: Yeah. But since Roe vs. Wade, it's like six.

PAT: Yeah, literally.

GLENN: Yeah. So -- so occasionally, there are others that are terrorist. But it is wildly rare in comparison to what we're dealing with, coming from the Muslim community. And everybody knows that. Not all Muslims are terrorists. But almost all terrorists are Muslim currently. And to, A -- for the media to continue to deny that things are linked -- ISIS came out with the mall and immediately claimed responsibility for that. This is a soldier for ISIS.

We won't claim that it's even terror-related. Well, they're claiming it. And every time this happens -- and this is why this hurts Hillary Clinton. If they're trying to help, they're hurting her.

You know, fine with me. Do what you want. But the American people are not with the press. The American people both left and right know, "The country is in trouble because we are denying reality."

STU: Right. Because what did de Blasio call it? An intentional incident. Not terrorism, but an intentional incident, which is really a scary way to --

PAT: An intentional incident.

STU: Yes. It was intentional. It was an incident. I will give him both of those things.

GLENN: And I contend that nobody on the left -- very few on the left, except the political players and the media, actually say those kinds of things, believe those kinds of things. They know how bad ISIS is. They know we have terrorists in our own country. They know that not all mosques are bad, but there are bad mosques. Not all Muslims are bad, but there are bad Muslims. They know these things. And to continually deny them is what takes common sense people and pushes them over to somebody who will say, "Ban all Muslims."

PAT: Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: Well, no. No, that's not a good idea either. But if you have to choose between the two, most people will start to go, "You know what -- because they're afraid. And there's nobody that knows better than progressives what fear does.

STU: If there's a book written about that, that would be interesting.

GLENN: Oh, man. One that would show the lies that are based in fear.

STU: Right. Well, focusing on the people who make the lies, like, you know, the Liars.

PAT: Too bad there's nothing like that. Nobody would ever --

GLENN: No, wait. Guys, I wrote one. It's called Liars.

STU: Oh, really?

PAT: Oh, my gosh.

STU: Wow.

PAT: What a happy coincidence.

JEFFY: What, like 100 years ago?

GLENN: It is. It's amazing. It's almost like that was thought out in advance.

President Joe Biden just had the worst-rated week in the entire first year of his presidency, but his latest poll numbers are the icing on the cake, Bill O'Reilly told Glenn Beck on the radio program.

Given that polls aren’t always correct, O’Reilly explained another way to prove that Biden's first year may be worse than any other president's before him: It’s impossible to name one single contribution Biden has made to move America forward.

"Biden: There isn't anything you can point to. Not one thing ... that he's done to improve the nation. That's the test. You just step back, take emotion out of it, politics out of it, and say, give me one thing that Joe Biden has done to improve the country. Just one. And you can't do it," O'Reilly said. "And if there is, I want your listeners to contact me at BillO'Reilly.com."

A recent report from Rolling Stone details a public letter sent to Spotify — signed by "270 physicians and scientists" — demanding that the platform implement a "misinformation policy" in response to Joe Rogan's recent interview with Dr. Robert Malone on “The Joe Rogan Experience.”

"This is absolute fascism," Glenn Beck said on the radio program. "There is no safe space. They're coming after talk radio. They're coming after our podcasts. They're coming after our websites."

Glenn said this is this is just one more example of the left's crackdown on freedom of speech and further prove of their ongoing fight against free thinkers or anybody who wants to have an open conversation that may include ideas contrary to what they believe.

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"

Have you ever wondered why so many insane things are happening simultaneously RIGHT NOW? Big corporations are going woke. The stock market got red-hot during a FORCED recession. Stores like Walmart and Target were allowed to stay open during the lockdown, but mom-and-pop stores on Main Street had to close, some of them forever.

On Wednesday's "GlennTV" special, Glenn Beck explains it all in this sneak-peek episode — a primer to his new book and the upcoming explosive, in-depth special: “The Great Reset: Joe Biden & the Rise of 21st-Century Fascism.” Co-author Justin Haskins joins along with Glenn’s head writer and researcher, Jason Buttrill, to answer audience questions about a topic that the media has tried to censor and “fact-check.” You will be equipped with everything you need to know about what the global elites of the world have planned for the transformation of society and YOUR life.
