Has Matt Drudge Left the Reservation?

Many anxious conservatives are awaiting the Trump administration's actions on Obamacare and other key Republican platform issues. Even diehard Trump support Matt Drudge recently tweeted about the delay in tax reform.

"Every single time, [Republicans] have got the executive and both of the legislative branches and they've got the majority and they've got all the power, they just squander it. And it looks like that's the road they're headed down again. And I'm going to be really pissed if that's what happens," Co-host Pat Gray said Thursday on The Glenn Beck Program.

Let's pray Senate Majority Leader McConnell (R-KY) and House Speaker Ryan (R-WI) don't ignore the will of the American people yet again.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

PAT: Drudge was upset by that and tweeted about it yesterday. And Sean Spicer was asked about it at the White House press conference.

VOICE: I noticed that Matt Drudge tweeted today that the Republican Party should be sued for fraud, basically upset about the lack of any legislation to repeal Obamacare or any tax cut legislation. So what's your message to him and anyone else who is worried about sort of the big push in the beginning and might be concerned that that momentum is stalling?

SEAN: I think it's hardly stalling. I think it's a mammoth thing to repeal and replace. I think there's no question the president's commitment to doing this. You've heard Speaker Ryan talk about how we should be able to have this wrapped up by the end of the year.

It's a big bill. It got jammed through, and it was very sweeping. We're talking about one-fifth of our economy. We can either do it quickly, as the Democrats did, and end up with a monstrosity, where premiums go up, access is limited. Or we can do it right.

And I think the president, while he wants to get this done as soon as possible and understand what's at stake, he wants to do it right. He understands how important health care is to American families and individuals. And so his goal is to get it done right and have an outcome that achieves the goals that it sets out to do. That's it, plain and simple.

STU: That's a good answer, right?

PAT: Okay. The problem with that though is, that's just pushing it down the road, which is what Republicans do every single time.

STU: Exactly.

PAT: Every single time, they've got the executive and both of the legislative branches and they've got the majority and they've got all the power, they just squander it. And it looks like that's the road they're headed down again. And I'm going to be really pissed if that's what happens.

STU: And the tax cuts were what Drudge specifically mentioned there. And I guess he maybe also hit Obamacare. But the tax cuts are interesting because you've heard at least talk about the Obamacare part of this. We've heard almost nothing about tax cuts.

PAT: About tax cuts.

STU: And, again, you have to look at this as you have two years here. Not four years. Two years.

PAT: Right.

STU: Because you don't know what's going to happen in 2018. Yes, the Senate is set up well for Republicans. But you have no idea what the context of those moments will be. You have no idea if you lose seats or you gain seats. You have no idea if the House goes or not. You have no idea what the economy, what shape it will be in. You better get these things passed now while you have momentum.

PAT: And the thing is, if it were the Democrats in this position with the executive branch and the House and the Senate --

STU: They did it. We don't need to speculate. They did it.

PAT: They did it. They do it every single time. Every single time.

STU: They did it with the stimulus. They did it with Dodd-Frank and Obamacare.

PAT: And Obamacare.

STU: They pushed three gigantic initiatives through, almost immediately. And that's what you have to do.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: Because you can't predict what the status will be in a couple years.

PAT: The other thing that concerns me about this is if we do something fast, we'll wind up with a monstrosity. Which leads me to believe that they're putting together some massive government program to replace the massive government program, which is a huge concern.

STU: Yeah. And that's a little scare.

Protests following the fatal police shooting of Walter Wallace Jr quickly devolved into violence, rioting, and looting in Philadelphia, and BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer was there to document what the mainstream media won't. But while filming the carnage inside a Five Below on Tuesday, Elijah was surrounded and attacked by looters.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to detail his experience and to explain why mainstream media efforts to downplay the violence just show that independent media has never been more important.

"Unfortunately, [the attack] escalated from one person to about a dozen very quickly," Elijah explained. "I'm actually really happy to be alive. Because in that same shopping center, right there, there was a 15-year-old girl who was shot, according to reports. And I heard multiple gunshots throughout the night. Another individual is reported to have heard a gunshot as well, so we try to confirm. I watched people get pummeled beyond belief."

Glenn asked Elijah to respond to mainstream media claims that conservatives are exaggerating the looting and violence in Philadelphia.

"It's so funny to hear people that aren't there try to counter what we're reporting," Elijah replied.

In the final days before the 2020 election, President Donald Trump is gaining among black voters, particularly men, because his record of accomplishments "speaks for itself" and the "façade" that President Trump is a racist "just doesn't ring true," argued sports columnist Jason Whitlock on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday.

Jason, who recently interviewed the president at the White House for OutKick.com, shared his thoughts on why he believes many black Americans — notably celebrities such as Kanye West, Ice Cube, and 50 Cent — are breaking from the "façade" that President Trump is a "flaming racist."

"I really believe the facts are starting to speak for themselves, and that Donald Trump's record of accomplishments, particularly as it relates to African Americans, speaks for itself," Jason told Glenn. "He actually has a record to stand on, unlike even Barack Obama. When [Obama] was president, I don't think he had much of a record to stand on, in terms of, 'Hey, what did he actually deliver for African Americans?' President Trump has things he can stand on and, you know, beyond that I think black people understand when he starts talking about black unemployment rate. And America's unemployment rate. And then, when you add in for black men, the façade we've been putting on [President Trump] … you know, this whole thing that he's some flaming racist, it just doesn't ring true."

Jason suggested that Trump's fearlessness, unabashed masculinity, and record of keeping his promises resonates with men in the black community. He also weighed in on how media and social media's bias plays a huge role in convincing people to hate President Trump while ignoring Antifa and others on the Left.

"I keep explaining to people, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, they're some of the most secular places on earth. And we've reduced everyone to a tweet, that we disagree with," he added.

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:
