Happy Birthday, Glenn: Pat & Stu Rate Donald Trump's Insults

CNN's Jake Tapper recently appear on Stephen Colbert's show where the host listed insults levied at CNN by President Donald Trump. This inspired co-hosts Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere, filling in for a sick Glenn Beck, to give a special birthday tribute to their boss.

"He's going to love this segment. Can we not air what we just did? I know it's a live show, but can we not air it to one specific household. Is that possible? Can we make the Internet go out for, you know, just a short time? Oh, by the way, we should also mention happy birthday, Glenn," Stu said.

Here is a list of insults that then candidate Donald Trump said about Glenn. Pat and Stu gave them a thumbs up or thumbs down for accuracy:

• His endorsement means nothing

• Dumb as a rock

• Crying

• Failing

• Irrelevant

• Wacko

• Failing, crying, lost soul

• Sad

• Zero credibility

• Very dumb and failing

• Mental basket case

• Viewers and ratings are way down

• A real nut job

How did they vote?

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

PAT: All right. Could be a fascinating four years. It has already been a fascinating four weeks. And we've barely begun here. We haven't even scratched the surface of how interesting the Donald Trump presidency is going to be. Last night Colbert had Jake Tapper on, and he went through this litany of the things that Donald Trump has already called his network.

Fake news, fraud, unwatchable, a disgrace on the broadcasting industry, disgusting, phony reporting, unprofessional, bad television, and CNN can go to hell.


STU: A long list there.

PAT: Yes. But that's what Donald Trump does.

STU: Yeah, that's what he does.

JEFFY: That's what he does.

STU: Sometimes earlier nails them. Some of them are satisfying to hear. Some of them don't really make sense in the case. I thought it would be a good time because he's not here to defend himself is go through the insults that Donald Trump has leveled against Glenn Beck. Are these legitimate? Are these good quality insults accurate ones? Or do you think these really apply, or do they not? Are these fake insults?

PAT: Uh-huh.

STU: So let's start off. I mean, I think he starts off on the right foot here. His endorsement means nothing. Right there.

PAT: You got that one right.

STU: You got that one right for sure. So there you go. That one is a good start. Dumb as a rock. No. Look, I mean, he might not be -- as he said many times. I'm not a scientist, but I'm a thinker. I think he's slightly elevated from a rock.

PAT: I would have to say, no, he's smarter than a rock. Got that one wrong.

JEFFY: Absolutely.

STU: Next one. And I don't even know if it's an insult. But the New York Times listed on every insult Donald Trump has made against everyone. He made this insult against Glenn Beck. Crying.

Now, this is a tough one because, first of all, I don't know if it's actually an insult. Yeah, crying I guess it could be an insult. But I get what he's going for. It certainly was applicable at one time.

PAT: Yeah, he did cry a lot for a while.

STU: Not a lot.

PAT: He cries a lot less now.

STU: A lot for an adult male, I would say.

PAT: Yes, I think we can give him crying.

STU: We'll give him crying. Although, it's a little outdated.

PAT: Yeah, it is.

STU: I haven't heard Glenn cry for quite a long time. He's lost all credibility.

PAT: No.

STU: I don't think he's lost all credibility. Obviously, Trump is going to say that. But that's largely because the Trump criticisms that Glenn has made in the past. I mean, you know, there's still a lot. Like, for example, has he lost all credibility when he says Neil Gorsuch is a good nominee? Probably not. He has just lost credibility on the things that he disagrees with Donald Trump on.

PAT: Uh-huh.

STU: So next up, failing. Now, we were supposed to go out of business a while ago.

PAT: Quite some time ago.

JEFFY: Yeah.

STU: What's the schedule on that?

PAT: September, wasn't it? It was a Friday in September.

STU: Specifically.

PAT: And we are still on the air. I'm going to have to call that one false. Count that wrong.

STU: Irrelevant. Is Glenn irrelevant?

PAT: The President of the United States still talks about him. Can't be irrelevant. I'm going to say no on that one.

STU: All right. Next up is wacko.

PAT: I mean, I think that one -- that's pretty subjective but, yes, we'll give him wacko.

STU: That was a very good job by the president there. How about -- this is all enclosed in one installment. Failing, crying, lost soul.


PAT: Failing, no.

STU: We gave him crying. We didn't give him failing. So really this comes down to lost soul. Is Glenn a lost soul? Glenn might argue he's a lost soul. But I don't think so.

JEFFY: He might. But I don't think so.

PAT: I can't give it to him. Can't give him lost soul.

STU: Sad. Absolutely. I am giving him sad.

PAT: He is sad.

STU: He is absolutely sad.

PAT: He's much more sad than a guy that successful should be.

STU: Yes, Glenn is --

JEFFY: Right.

STU: I honestly think Glenn could be President of the United States and have all the money Donald Trump has and have a 100 percent approval generating, and he would still find a way to be depressed over it. So, yes, sad I'm with. Has zero credibility.

PAT: No. Again. No.

STU: Because that's essentially the same as lost all credibility. Next up is very dumb and failing. Donald Trump insults of Glenn Beck.

PAT: Going to give him a no and no on that one.

STU: Another irrelevant. We already covered that one. This is an is interesting one. Donald Trump insults of Glenn Beck. Mental basket case.


JEFFY: That's a tough one.

PAT: That's a hard one.

STU: As a guy who employs us, we should probably say no on that one. But there's some evidence. I'm going to entertain that one.

PAT: Can we give him a yes and no on that? Like, partial. That works.

STU: He's not going to be pleased with that generating.

PAT: No, both sides of the issues, Glenn. You wanted us to be fair.

STU: How about viewers and ratings are way down? That one I know is not true because I get the spreadsheet every month.

PAT: Not true.

STU: A real nut job.

JEFFY: See, that goes back to the other one.

STU: I just --

PAT: I'm going to say he's not a nut job. He's not a nut job.

STU: Look, the Ninth Circuit court had a three judge panel here. Let's not just jump to conclusions. We've got our own three-judge panel here. I mean I -- a real nut job. I mean --

PAT: I'm going no on that.

JEFFY: A nut job is different than a basket case.

STU: It is different than a basket case. But it's job as -- we're judges here. We are so-called judges here. We can make a determination. Is Glenn Beck a real nut job.

PAT: I can see where you want to go "yes" on this. Don't you?

STU: Here's the thing. As the third judge here if I say both of you say "no," my vote won't count.

JEFFY: What was the one two ago that was --

PAT: Mental basket case.

JEFFY: Mental basket case. And we said "yes" on that.

STU: Well, we said -- we gave him a half.

JEFFY: Half and half.

STU: I can see how you get there.

PAT: Nut job. Some people are calling him the most reasonable man in the room now.

STU: Yeah.

PAT: I'm going to say no on nut job.

STU: Control room disagrees with that ruling.


How about always seems to be crying. Now, crying we gave him.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: But always seems to be crying.

PAT: No, not anymore. That's old.

STU: At this point, I'm going to go with no. And last one here. Insults by Donald Trump against Glenn Beck. The last one in our collection. Wacky. I think wacky's fine.

PAT: Sure.

STU: Wacky is a -- probably an okay -- he's going to love this segment. Can we not air what we just did? I know it's a live show. But can we not air it to a -- one specific household. Is that possible? Can we make the Internet go out for, you know, just a short time? Oh, by the way, we should also mention happy birthday, Glenn.


JEFFY: We're so sorry you're sick. We wish you were better.

STU: He's, like, I take -- I'm off on my birthday because I'm sick.

PAT: And this is what I get?

STU: I think, again, we praised Jake Tapper for being fair.

PAT: Right.

STU: And what did we do? We went through this list. Some true. Some false.

PAT: I think it was fair.

STU: I'm sure Glenn would appreciate it. Well, I'm not entirely sure, but I think maybe.

PAT: You would like to think he would appreciate it.

STU: Some of it.

The king of "No Spin" and bestselling author of "Killing Crazy Horse," Bill O'Reilly joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to talk about the latest developments in Joe Biden's Ukraine and China corruption scandal. Now that some of the details are finally coming out in the open, does the average Democrat care? Maybe, but the Left doesn't seem to.

O'Reilly argued there's more hatred for President Donald Trump now than in 2016, and that some people hate President Trump so much that they'd rather vote for the "senile, corrupt" Joe Biden.

"Hunter got tens of millions of dollars from Ukraine, from Russia, from China because his father was vice president. I have no doubt in my mind," O'Reilly said. "But the hatred for Donald Trump overrides that in the minds of millions of viewers. They're saying, 'You know, we'd rather have the senile corrupt guy than Trump.'"

Asked by Glenn if any other Republican running for president would be met with the same level of vitriol, O'Reilly answered, "The Left is the Left. They don't like America. The want to redo the Constitution. They want to take some of our freedoms, like the Second Amendment and the First Amendment, and change them. And they want to destroy capitalism and replace it with a big centralized government in Washington that controls the economy … but I'm talking about the folks. I have liberal friends and I say to them, 'Do you not understand that when you vote for Biden, you're voting against your own self interest?'"

In a phone call with his constituents, Senator Ben Sasse (R-Neb) unleashed a torrent of criticisms about President Donald Trump, saying he "flirted with white supremacists," "kisses dictators' butts," and "spends like a drunken sailor."

On the radio program Friday, Glenn said he was disappointed in Sen. Sasse for apparently forgetting all of President Trump's accomplishments. Because, in reality, Trump has accomplished a lot more than many presidents before him.

Then, for anyone who may have forgotten President Trump's achievements — or who simply hate the man so much they've ignored them — Glenn listed just some of the many things this president has achieved during his three and a half years in the White House.

President Trump has given us great judges on the lower court, 3 judges far superior than Roberts and other bogus constitutionalists as SCOTUS and one just may turn out to be another Clarence Thomas. He kicked the ass of ISIS and came home.

He got us out of the disastrous Iran deal, killed their head of terror, boxed them in and is currently collapsing their economy while also brokering a Mid East peace deal that everyone said could never happen. He moved our embassy to Jerusalem despite the state department, something no president has done even though they all promised.

Yes, he met with the North Korean Dictator. I hated that, but I also hated the fact that no other president did anything and North Korea kept gaining power. He has gotten Europe to pay their share of NATO, brought the Arabs and the Jews together, while smashing the choke hold of the PLO, and stood up to the Chinese instead of selling them supercomputers (Clinton), accepting lead poison in dog food (Bush), or loving the CCP and taking millions in dirty money (Obama/Biden).

He also has defended religious liberty unlike any other president at least in the last 100 years, and is a true pro-life advocate that unlike most republicans backs it up with action instead of just talk.

President Trump has also opened doors that the GOP was too wussy to even try to open with Hispanics and Blacks. He again didn't pander. He instead cleared the dead wood and opened pathways up so they could get higher education, create jobs, and not get lost in the prison system.

He also has defended religious liberty... and is a true pro-life advocate.

President Trump also took on an economy that had been beaten down, a people who had been told "you didn't build that" and, in fact, Obama and Biden claimed that the economy was "as good as it would ever get," that we would never create jobs in sectors ever again.

President Trump gave us the lowest unemployment rate since 1969 (the year I celebrated my 5th birthday,) the lowest unemployment for Hispanics & Blacks ever, and the first real growth in pay that I can remember.

President Trump then responded to the largest pandemic in 100 years by doing a couple of things I have never seen a president do:

  1. America's biggest capitalist shuts down the entire economy and knowingly puts his re-election at risk in order to save people.
  2. Closes travel with China and Europe, only to be called “racist," "xenophobic" and accused of stirring hatred. Now everyone says they were for it, but he stood alone and took the heat.

When everyone bashed him because they thought he would seize control and become an authoritarian by telling states what to do, or taking control of companies and telling them what to produce, he simply asked the free market to step to the plate, because he trusts the people of this country to do the right thing. By not taking control, he was called a dictator and a Nazi. Meanwhile he has been blamed for the blood bath created by Gov. Cuomo's nursing home policies. They said 2 million would die, best case scenario 200,000 — if we did everything right. Gee, seems that we are now in the time period they told us would be phase two, it seems as though we seem to have hit that "best case scenario" at this point.

While all of this has gone on, President Trump has fought the lies that were started by Hillary Clinton's team to smear him as a Russian operative. It was enabled by the Obama White House and included the DOJ, CIA, Dept of State, FBI, and DNI. Did I leave anyone out? Oh, yeah we are now getting evidence that members of the Pentagon may have been involved as well. Not to mention the so-called "press" and Congress who did things that would embarrass not only "Frank Underwood" but also Kevin Spacey. He has single handedly exposed the press for who they are and have always been. Because of his tweets, personal style and frankly balls of steel, he has exposed those who truly are: "Enemies of the people." I hated that when he first said it, but it is true. Any person or group that knowingly lies to destroy our president, our Constitution and the free market, are not just enemies of the people, they are enemies of the freedom of all mankind.

As someone who didn't support President Trump at first (and that is putting it mildly) I remain honest enough to judge him on his entire record. He is perhaps the only man in America that can and has stood entirely alone, surrounded by enemies, surrounded by those who took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution, who are now actively engaged in destroying it and any elected president who stands in their way.

Personally, I have grown sick and tired of spineless, do nothing, old, corrupt GOP politicians who are either part of the problem or too frightened to stand alone and speak up. The vast majority are all "Sunshine Patriots." History will condemn those who did nothing but complain and whine, while others not only rang the bell, but stood and took the hits, who risked it all and lost money, reputation and perhaps, God forbid, some who gave the ultimate sacrifice to fight the evil that rages so clearly against the light.

100 years from now history will judge all of us. So will our children's children. Most will be forgotten. Those who failed to show up on the battlefield or cower in the trees, will be remembered with shame and disdain. Others like President Trump, I believe will be seen as indispensable.

DECODING the Democrats' EXTENSIVE ties to 'Big Tech'

The Democrats' ties to "Big Tech" and the entertainment industry have placed them in the perfect position to influence both public policy and our nation's culture. It's impossible to unweave the entire web of Democrat operatives and sleeper cells, but here are a few of the current ties between the Dems and an industry that arguably has more influence on our day-to-day lives than any other.
