Trump Achieves the Impossible: Stu Defends Douche Hall of Famer Chris Cuomo

Say what you will about President Donald J. Trump, but there's not going to be one dull moment over the next four years.

In one of his latest tweets, the president scolded CNN's Chris Cuomo, a member of the Douche Hall of Fame, over his interview with Sen. Blumenthal (D-CT):

There's only one problem: Cuomo did ask the question.

"I listened to the interview with Chris Cuomo and Senator Blumenthal. It was legitimately the first question he asked him was about his military service," Co-host Stu Burguiere said on radio Thursday.

Perhaps President Trump tuned in late to the interview and missed the lead question.

"Defending Chris Cuomo is physically painful for me. It actually hurts. Ligaments are pulled and organs shut down," Stu said.

"This guy is a douche. There's no doubt about that," Co-host Pat Gray chimed in.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

PAT: I mean, say what you will about Donald J. Trump, and we have. We've said plenty about him, both good and bad actually, but there's not going to be one dull moment over the next four years

STU: That's so true.

PAT: This guy tweeting random stuff at 3 o'clock in the morning every day, there's not going to be -- there's not going to be a lack of things to talk about.

STU: What was the tweet this morning, Jeffy, about the CNN interview?

JEFFY: One hour ago, Chris Cuomo, in his interview with Senator Blumenthal never asked him about his long-term lie about his brave service in Vietnam. Fake news.

STU: Now, this sadly is douche-on-douche violence.

JEFFY: I know.

STU: Being both Chris Cuomo and Donald Trump.

JEFFY: It's tough to stand up for them.

STU: But here's the thing, I listened to the interview with Chris Cuomo and Senator Blumenthal. It was legitimately the first question he asked him was about his military service.

PAT: Seriously.

JEFFY: Wow.

PAT: Not only he asked him, it was the first question he asked.

STU: Now, maybe Trump tuned in, in the middle and missed it or whatever.

PAT: Still come on, you don't check a single fact before you start tweeting?

STU: Look, I --

PAT: Oh, jeez.

STU: I don't know what to say about it. It's obviously completely unimportant as far as the future of the country. I don't know why Trump does this. I mean, Trump wins with his entire audience, right?

JEFFY: He sure does.

STU: If you didn't see the interview, you just believe, oh, man, Cuomo is avoiding that question.

PAT: Yes.

STU: Legitimately his first question was, a lot of people are saying that, you know, why should they trust you on this Gorsuch thing? You lied about your military service.

That was like -- and, of course, Blumenthal ducked the question, which, of course, he would do. And you might be able to fairly say, as even Chris Cuomo mentioned, you can fairly criticize him potentially for not following him on it or not going after him and chasing him down and trying -- but you can't say he didn't say it.

PAT: But you can't say he didn't ask.

STU: It was the first thing he said. So I don't know what the purpose of that is. I think maybe it's one of those things where you can make the media out to be sort of unbelievable and, you know, that they're making stuff up and they don't care about getting to the truth. Which is true so often, there is no need to make one up on Twitter.

PAT: That's right.

STU: You can find 30 examples a day where CNN does something distasteful to conservatives or it doesn't seem like they're actually looking for the truth on a particular story. But when you pick one where the guy legitimately -- I -- you know, defending Chris Cuomo is physically painful for me. It actually hurts. Ligaments are pulled and organs shut down.

PAT: This guy is a douche. There's no doubt about that.

STU: But why pick that one? I don't know.

PAT: I don't either.

STU: However, I think he does well with this stuff because strategically -- just talking specifically, I think it helps feed that narrative that the media doesn't do their job. And most people aren't going to check. Who is going to check that? Nobody.

PAT: Nobody. The other thing he was tweeting about was Nordstrom. Right?

STU: Yeah, that was a big thing.

PAT: He was upset with Nordstrom because apparently they dropped Ivanka's line from their stores. And I wonder, was it performing badly as Nordstrom had said or was it because of the immigration policy?

STU: Right.

JEFFY: It was because they treated her unfairly according to President Trump.

PAT: According to Trump.

STU: And whether you think that is unfair or not, that's another story. But I think it was legitimately connected to the immigration thing. They came out with a statement basically saying they disagreed with it. And then a couple days later, they just dropped the line. Come on.

PAT: That sounds a little more than coincidence, doesn't it?

JEFFY: Yes, it does.

STU: I doubt they were like, "Well, I just don't like the design on that shirt. I just don't like it. I'm not a paisley guy."

PAT: I liked it last week, but this week, I don't like it anymore.

STU: Wow. That is ugly. I don't like the color red anymore. I just don't like it. So I doubt that was it. It was one of those things that probably was tied. That's, of course, their right as a private company.

PAT: Yeah, it is. It is.

STU: I don't know if that's -- you can certainly be critical of the president for getting involved in that nonsense, from a perspective of, he's got more important things to do than his daughter's -- I mean, it's my daughter's birthday today. Happy birthday, Ainsley.

PAT: And it's your birthday today. Happy birthday, Stu.

STU: Thank you very much. But as much as you love your daughter, talking about her clothing line as president of the United States is probably not -- should not be --

PAT: Does Ainsley have -- your daughter, does she have a clothing line yet?

STU: She does. She does.

PAT: She does? Okay.

STU: It's only at Neiman though. So go to Neiman Marcus, you can pick that up. The Ainsley line.

PAT: Nice.

STU: Yeah, a lot of Elsa. Which we did not get the licensing rights for, so fingers crossed they don't hear this.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: But a lot of Else going on in that clothing line.

So I don't -- I don't like the idea that he's criticizing private companies. I didn't like it when Barack Obama would do it. I don't think that's the role for the president. It certainly brings up conflict of interest stuff, which is unnecessary for him to have to deal with in the middle of trying to have to deal with many things -- as we have said on the show -- many things that have been good so far. So why put yourself in that position? I just don't know -- I wonder if President Trump has decided I'm going to every day come out with something that's going to make the media go crazy and have them all distracted. And I will do the opposite.

That's sort of that idea of the master media manipulator that everybody has kind of thrown out there. And if it's true, it does seem to work.

Sometimes -- I don't like how it's done, but it does seem to be an effective tool.

PAT: And if it does work and it gets him through his presidency and helps make him successful, it will be interesting to see if that forever changes the way the office of the presidency is used.

JEFFY: The way it's done, yeah.

PAT: Because people will see that -- the next guy is going to see that -- or girl. The next guy or woman will see, "Well, what Trump worked, so I'm going to try it too." And maybe they'll just use the office that way.

He's setting a precedent here. And if it works, I think it will be used in the future.

STU: Yeah. I mean, I think so.

And you could adjust the way it's done and make -- it's certainly a tool that is useful.

PAT: Uh-huh.

STU: And you're even seeing -- I mean, Elizabeth Warren is doing the same thing. I'm going to resist -- you're going to resist the guy you've been working with for the past six years, really? Jeff Sessions is the thing you're going to resist? The guy you probably had lunch with 12 times over the past four years. That's going to be a big resistance movement? It's obviously nonsense.

But these people go to social media. They go in front of the cameras. They try to get these things going. And it probably does work. And I think because most people have lies. Right? They're not in the middle of this. No one is watching Chris Cuomo in the morning, checking whether he said these things. No one is thinking whether Jeff Sessions or Elizabeth Warren were having coffee last week and joking about how this was all going to happen. We were all going to have these little arguments, and at the end, it's all going to go through. You know, it's silly. But for whatever reason, the American people, especially those that aren't engaged in the process, they eat it up.

The conditions in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule — for Americans, allies, Christians, women and more — continue to deteriorate, and the people there continue to plead that we will not forget them. On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck gave an emotional update on current evacuation efforts, including the tragic story of one girl — an American passport holder — who was not rescued in time.

"I have a pit in my stomach like I haven't had in a while. What is happening in Afghanistan is both miraculous and horrendous," Glenn began. "What's going on right now one of the most amazing things I've ever personally witnessed — the evacuation of Americans, those [Afghans] who helped us, Christians that are dying, women that are under incredible conditions. I see things that I can't show you. I see the pleadings from people who are in safe houses, 'Please, don't forget us.' I see what they're being sent by the Taliban.

"If I die today, my entire life will have been worth it for what you have helped get done, in just the last three weeks. You have saved well over 5,000 people," he continued.

Fighting back tears, Glenn added, "I ask that you pray for those in the Middle East, that are in the midst of doing work, that a Moses-style miracle will happen. ... There are several people that are in dire need of medical care. Friday, we told you — along with the congressman from Oklahoma [Rep. Markwayne Mullin] who had just returned — [about] a father and two daughters that were blue passport Americans, and a mother who had a permanent residence, a Green Card. The daughter was very ill. And they thought, that if we couldn't get her out of there, that she would lose her legs. I got a call on Saturday morning, that we were too late, that she didn't lose her legs. She lost her life, waiting. There are now two Americans, instead of three."

Glenn showered his audience with gratitude, repeating that "well over 5000" lives have already been saved because of their incredible generosity, but lamented that there are still thousands more people yet to be saved.

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."
