Here's the Thing: Sean Spicer Needs His Own Press Secretary

The president of the United States is Donald Trump. The press secretary is Sean Spicer. You're expecting things to go well?

Enjoy the complimentary clip or read the transcript for details.

GLENN: Here's what Sean Spicer said at the press conference yesterday.

SEAN: We didn't use chemical weapons in World War II. You know, you had a -- someone as despicable as Hitler who didn't even sink to using chemical weapons.

STU: Oh, no. Oh, no.

GLENN: All right. Here's a rule Sean Spicer should just live with, and that is, don't mention Hitler ever.

STU: Wouldn't people say the same thing about you, Mr. Beck?

JEFFY: And have.

GLENN: Yes, but I'm not Press Secretary for the president of the United States. Just don't use the word "Hitler," ever again. "Nazi," you might to throw that one out. "Holocaust," might want to throw that one out.

STU: You wouldn't even be able to talk with these rules.

GLENN: No, I know.

But, again, I'm not in the White House. Look, here's the thing, Sean Spicer said, didn't use chemical weapons. Well, yeah, he did.

STU: Was there a notable way he used them? I don't remember anything --

GLENN: Well, I'm trying to remember -- oh, yeah, the Holocaust.

STU: Oh, yeah, I've heard that word.

GLENN: Yeah, the showers.

STU: You're talking about the Holocaust centers?

GLENN: No. I'm calling it the concentration camps, but that's exactly -- we'll get into that here in a second. So he says this. And the media went from zero to Holocaust denier in about half a second. He is not denying the Holocaust. The Anne Frank Center tweeted @PresidentTrump in all caps: Fire Sean Spicer now for engaging in Holocaust denial.

That happened, I believe, before the press conference was over.

PAT: Come on.

GLENN: Towards the end of the press briefing, Spicer was asked to clarify his comment.

He made things even worse, if that was possible. He said: I understand your point. Thank you. What I mean is, Hitler brought them -- meaning the Jews, into the Holocaust Center. And I understand that.

Oh, jeez. Holocaust Center. I mean --

PAT: Brought them into the Holocaust Center? Oh, man.

GLENN: Every teacher -- every history teacher of Sean Spicer immediately headed to their local courthouse to change their name.

(chuckling)

Like I cannot -- Holocaust Center. Where did that come from?

Here's the problem: Sean Spicer -- Sean Spicer needs a PR person himself. He needs a press relation spokesperson for himself that can just come out and say this: Ladies and gentlemen, we're just going to keep it real short today. I talked to Sean Spicer. And, look, I just have to tell you this. Dumb as a box of rocks sometimes. I mean, he just says things that that's not what he meant. He just said whatever came to the top of his head. But let's remember, again, it's Sean Spicer. He's not that bright. Let's just move on. He wasn't denying the Holocaust. Thank you.

That's what he should say. But that's -- Sean Spicer wouldn't have somebody say that because that's what he should be saying about Donald Trump.

Look, guys, come on. We all know what's going on here. It's Donald Trump. We know he says things that, you know, he was saying about the -- you know, saying about the Muslim ban. Come on. You all know he didn't even read the damn thing. He just said, look, I want to keep my promise to the American people about the Muslims and the borders. And he worked something up. And they did. And he heard the word "ban," maybe from himself. And he just got up and said it was a ban. It's not a ban. You know it's not a ban. He didn't even read it. Let's move on.

That's what he should be doing. But ego, of course, will not let them do it. But that's honestly what people should do. Somebody should be saying, "Look, that's not what he meant. He's not thinking this through." And on this particular case, you are the president of the United States. You are the spokesperson for the president of the United States. But the president of the United States is Donald Trump. Your press secretary is Sean Spicer. What, are you expecting things to go well?

Stop it. Stop it.

Glenn says we’re at a possible TURNING POINT toward dictatorship

Glenn says we're at exactly the same place so many countries have faced before: a turning point possibly towards dictatorship. It may not end that way — but it's time we WAKE UP and realize that's where we're heading. Eric Clapton is now facing cancelation, and if the far left can do that to a rock n roll LEGEND, what can they do to you?

Refugee: 'American Wokeism Worse Than North Korea' | Yeonmi Park | Ep 111

Yeonmi Park experienced freedom for the first time at 13, when she watched "Titanic." She didn't see it in a plush movie theater seat; she watched it over the course of several days because electricity is sporadic in North Korea, where she grew up. "We don't have a word for oppression," Yeonmi tells Glenn. "There is no hope. There is no moving forward. You are doomed." Against unbelievable odds, Yeonmi escaped and eventually made it to New York City. Then, she went to Columbia University, where she couldn't believe how American students defined "oppression." She and Glenn discuss the ridiculousness of pronoun checks, the consequences of White House-led censorship, the importance of the Second Amendment, the authoritarianism of Big Tech, and the insanity of corporations' love affair with China. But even more shockingly, she explains her fear that where her new country is heading could be worse than what she escaped: "Even North Korea wasn't as crazy as American wokeism."

Glenn Beck: Rand Paul was RIGHT to say Dr. Fauci LIED about gain-of-function

The corporate media is doing everything it can to protect Dr. Anthony Fauci after Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) roasted him for allegedly lying to Congress about funding gain-of-function research in Wuhan, China.

During an extremely heated exchange at a Senate hearing on Tuesday, Sen. Paul challenged Dr. Fauci — who, as the director of the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases, oversees research programs at the National Institute of Health — on whether the NIH funded dangerous gain-of-function research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Dr. Fauci denied the claims, but as Sen. Paul knows, there are documents that prove Dr. Fauci's NIH was funding gain-of-function research in the Wuhan biolab before COVID-19 broke out in China.

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn and Producer Stu Burguiere presented the proof, because Dr. Fauci's shifting defenses don't change the truth.

Marxist Methods: Debunking the Left's LIES About Critical Race Theory

We've heard a lot about critical race theory lately, and for good reason: It's a racist ideology designed to corrupt our children and undermine our American values. But most of what we see are the results of a process that has been underway for decades. And that's not something the mainstream media, the Democrat Party, and even teachers unions want you to know. They're doing everything in their power to try and convince you that it's no big deal. They want to sweep everything under the rug and keep you in the dark. To fight it, we need to understand what fuels it.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the deep-seated Marxist origins of CRT and debunks the claims that it's just a harmless term for a school of legal scholarship. Newsweek opinion editor Josh Hammer joins to argue why we must ban critical race theory from our schools if we want to save a very divided nation.
