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.

[Laughter]

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.

[Laughter]

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.

[Laughter]

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.

[Laughter]

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.

[Laughter]

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.

Shortly after appearing on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" last Thursday, Los Angeles-based emergency medicine specialist Dr. Simone Gold got a call saying she was fired for speaking out about the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine in a now-banned viral video.

Dr. Gold returned to the radio program Monday to detail exactly what happened, the reason the hospitals gave for her firing, and how they threatened to fire her colleagues as well if she "didn't go quietly."

"Most emergency physicians work at more than one [hospital], as I do, and I've actually been fired from both," she told Glenn. "They told me that I appeared in an embarrassing video, and therefore, I would no longer be welcome to work there ... then they said, if I didn't go quietly and I made a fuss, they would have all the doctors in the group, you know, they'd have to go and they'll get a whole new doctor group."

Dr. Gold said she does not regret speaking out about hydroxychloroquine during the controversial "White Coat Summit" news conference held in Washington, D.C., last week. A video of the news conference quickly went viral on social media before being removed by Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and others for allegedly making false claims related to COVID-19.

"Bring it on," she said. "I want to continue to live in America. I want my children to continue to live in America. I don't want them to grow up in a place like China. When you get to a point where, not only can I not speak as a scientist, as a doctor, for what I know to be absolutely true, but you then want to cancel me and my colleagues, this is not okay. I would much rather fight than not fight ... and I want everybody to know that there are literally millions and millions of Americans who are on our side. Millions. I believe it's the majority."

Glenn then asked Dr. Gold to weigh in on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's new guidelines encouraging schools to reopen in the fall and the left's relentless drive to keep them closed.

"There's no actual scientific debate whatsoever if schools should open. None. There's no scientific debate. There's no serious person who thinks schools shouldn't open. Now, [through] some governors and policy makers, there's pressure being brought to bear on school districts, but there's no actual scientific debate. So it's going to come down to parents pressuring their local school districts to act in a responsible fashion."

Fox News host Greg Gutfeld joined Glenn on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to talk about his new book, "The Plus: Self-Help for People Who Hate Self-Help."

Greg admits he is probably the last person who should write a self-help book. Nevertheless, he offers his offbeat advice on how to save America during what has become one of the most tumultuous times in history, as well as drinking while tweeting (spoiler: don't do it).

He also shares his "evolution" on President Donald Trump, his prediction for the election, and what it means to be an agnostic-atheist.

In this clip, Greg shares what he calls his "first great epiphany" on how dangerous cancel culture has become.

"I believe that cancel culture is the first successful work-around of the First Amendment," he said. "Because freedom of speech doesn't protect me from my career being ruined, my livelihood being destroyed, or me getting so depressed I commit suicide. Cancel culture is the first successful work-around of freedom of speech. It can oppress your speech with the scepter of destruction. We don't have freedom of speech anymore."

Dr. Simone Gold joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to set the record straight about hydroxychloroquine -- what it is, how it works, and the real reason for all the current controversy surrounding a centuries-old medication.

Dr. Gold is a board certified emergency physician. She graduated from Chicago Medical School before attending Stanford University Law School. She completed her residency in emergency medicine at Stony Brook University Hospital in New York, and worked in Washington D.C. for the Surgeon General, as well for the chairman of the Committee on Labor and Human Resources. She works as an emergency physician on the front lines, whether or not there is a pandemic, and her clinical work serves all Americans from urban inner city to suburban and the Native American population. Her legal practice focuses on policy issues relating to law and medicine.

She is also the founder of America's frontline doctors, a group of doctors who have been under attack this week for speaking out about hydroxychloroquine during a news conference held outside the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington D.C.

On the program, Dr. Gold emphasized that the controversy over hydroxychloroquine is a "complete myth."

"Hydroxychloroquine is an analogue or a derivative of quinine, which is found in tree bark. It's the most noncontroversial of medications that there is," she explained.

"It's been around for centuries and it's been FDA-approved in the modern version, called hydroxychloroquine, for 65 years. In all of that time, [doctors] used it for breast-feeding women, pregnant women, elderly, children, and immune compromised. The typical use is for years or even decades because we give it mostly to RA, rheumatoid arthritis patients and lupus patients who need to be on it, essentially, all of their life. So, we have extensive experience with it ... it's one of the most commonly used medications throughout the world."

Dr. Gold told Glenn she was surprised when the media suddenly "vomited all over hydroxychloroquine", but initially chalked it up to the left's predictable hatred for anything President Donald Trump endorses. However, when the media gave the drug Remdesivir glowing reviews, despite disappointing clinical trial results, she decided to do some research.

"[Remdesivir] certainly wasn't a fabulous drug, but the media coverage was all about how fabulous it was. At that moment, I thought that was really weird. Because it's one thing to hate hydroxychloroquine because the president [endorsed] it. But it's another thing to give a free pass to another medicine that doesn't seem that great. I thought that was really weird, so I started looking into it. And let me tell you, what I discovered was absolutely shocking," she said.

According to the mainstream media's COVID-19 narrative, the president is "ignoring" the crisis.

On tonight's "Glenn TV" special, Glenn Beck exposes the media's last four months of political theater that has helped shape America's confusion and fear over coronavirus. And now, with a new school year looming on the horizon, the ongoing hysteria has enormous ramifications for our children, but the media is working overtime to paint the Trump administration as anti-science Neanderthals who want to send children and teachers off to die by reopening schools.

Glenn fights back with the facts and interviews the medical doctor Big Tech fears the most. Dr. Simone Gold, founder of America's Frontline Doctors, stands up to the media's smear campaign and explains why she could no longer stay silent in her fight against coronavirus fear.
