Real Men Discussing Real Issues: The Beyonce Controversy

Evidently, Beyonce rules everything --- even conservative talk radio.

"I can't believe I'm sitting in a room with three other guys, and the discussion for the last five minutes has been an argument over Beyonce," Glenn said Thursday on radio.

That's right, the boys got into a heated discussion about the so-called Beyonce awards controversy, brewed up in 2009 when Taylor Swift won Video of the Year at the MTV Music Video Awards rather than Queen Bey. (Thank you, Kanye West.) The same issue is plaguing her after this year's Grammy Awards, with Adele coming away as the night's big winner.

"This controversy about her not winning is so bogus," co-host Pat Gray said. "Santana put it best when he said, 'She didn't win because she can't sing.'"

Thank you, Carlos Santana. Finally, somebody said it.

Enjoy the complimentary clip above or read the transcript below for details.

GLENN: I can't believe I'm sitting in a room with three other guys, and the discussion for the last five minutes has been an argument over Beyonce

PAT: Yeah. Because this controversy about her not winning is so bogus.

Santana put it best when he said, "She didn't win because she can't sing."

JEFFY: Thank you. Thank you, Carlos Santana.

PAT: Adele is talented. That's why she won. And it's not like Beyonce has never won a Grammy award. She's won 22. She's the second most awarded woman of all time.

JEFFY: So it's almost like she's forgotten at the Grammys. No one even knows who she is.

PAT: Almost. Almost.

STU: It's also like the name of her album is Lemonade. You don't name your Grammy-winning album after a kid's drink.

PAT: Lemonade. That's true. That they can buy on every corner for 25 cents. Yeah, you don't do that.

GLENN: May I just say, all I said was, "I can't believe I'm sitting in a room with three adult men who are fighting over Beyonce," and look what happened.

PAT: And there it is.

Bill O'Reilly: How corrupt media twisted Joe Biden Ukraine scandal onto Trump

Bill O'Reilly gives his take on whether or not President Trump DID promise or threaten the President of Ukraine for dirt on Joe Biden, and whether or not the action is grounds for impeachment. But O'Reilly explains that either way, the media has demonstrated its corruptness yet again by manipulating the story away from a scandal for Joe and Hunter, and towards a potential, rumored wrongdoing by Donald Trump.

The Fed, banks printing money to 'prevent' trouble: Recession WILL come soon

Glenn discusses the current state of the economy with author of "Zero Hour," Harry Dent. He says the federal reserve is still funding big banks daily to increase their excess reserve, signaling that something is wrong with the system. Dent says the banks printed money back in the 1930s to climb out of the Great Depression, which only created an aftershock that was even worse. Banks and the Fed are doing the same thing today, so will the coming economic crisis be worse than the 2008 recession? Economist Dent says it's possible, and that it could come as early as 2020.

Lessons from Bill and Monica: Trump, Biden, Obama, Ukraine, and corruption

Glenn says there's an important lesson we can all learn looking back on the Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky scandal: corruption should matter, no matter which political party is to blame. So why are Democrats and the media trying desperately to shame President Trump for alleged corrupt action, but ignoring Joe Biden's clear intention to help his son, Hunter, profit through foreign policy in the Ukraine? How do we fix such a double standard?
