Media Hypocrisy Alert! Politifact Launches Trump Golf Tracker

Remember that golf tracker on Politifact's website the past eight years? The one that monitored the frequency of President Obama's golf games? No? That's because it didn't exist. Evidently, it only matters when Republican presidents play golf. That's why the political fact-checking website recently added a Trump golf tracker.

"I just can't take the hypocrisy, and the absolute blindness," Glenn said Monday on radio. "We would come so far as a nation if somebody at PolitiFact would say, "You know what, we realized that we mocked George Bush and made it into a big deal and then we didn't do anything about Barack Obama. And that was wrong."

Should any president be playing golf when the country is in trouble? Who knows. But Politifact should report all of the facts on each president's golf habits and let people decide for themselves.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

GLENN: Have you heard the latest on just the golf thing with President Trump?

STU: Well, PolitiFact has launched a golf tracker. A Trump golf tracker to see how many times he's gone golfing.

GLENN: Uh-huh.

STU: Now, remember --

PAT: How is the Obama golf tracker on Politico. How long did that one last? A total of zero days.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: This is the thing. Because, remember, the Obama situation, when we were criticizing the golf of Obama was largely because the media was so against the golf of Bush.

PAT: Yes.

STU: Remember the media was all over Bush for how much he golfed.

GLENN: Yes. Yes. Yeah.

STU: And then Obama started golfing.

PAT: He only golfed during the first like nine months and then stopped after 9/11.

GLENN: Stopped. Because of the war.

STU: Stopped after Iraq. I could be wrong.

GLENN: Yeah, because of the war.

PAT: Okay. Maybe it was Iraq.

STU: But it was -- I remember it was because of the war. And he didn't want --

GLENN: Somebody said -- one of the people said, don't you think it's a little inappropriate that you're out here golfing when people are dying?

GLENN: And he said, yeah, I guess it is. And he stopped.

PAT: Yeah, and he believed that.

JEFFY: He stopped.

GLENN: I mean, as you see by his book, his painting now of the soldiers, that guy took sending boys to war seriously. It bothered him.

STU: Uh-huh.

GLENN: And so when somebody said, don't you think it -- he was like, yeah, you're right. It is. And he stopped.

STU: And he stopped golfing. So it was kind of a big day in media circles, the day Obama passed Bush in the amount of golf he had played. Because it was such a big deal. If you remember the trailer to Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11, it was Bush golfing.

GLENN: Yep.

STU: It was like their central argument about him not caring.

GLENN: Yep. Yep.

PAT: And then they ignored it for eight years.

STU: For eight years, they ignored it. Now PolitiFact has launched a Trump golf tracker to see how many times.

GLENN: Unbelievable.

PAT: Jeez.

STU: And, of course, so far, the Trump golf tracker -- because Barack Obama did not play his first round of golf until April 26, 2009.

So he went on to play 333 times in eight years. So far --

GLENN: 333 times. How long does it take the average person to play 333 rounds of golf?

STU: What is it? It's four to six hours. I mean, what's your total --

GLENN: Six hours maybe. I don't know. I don't play golf. Anybody?

STU: Four hours. Four hours is about --

PAT: Well, they got 333 rounds at 1665 hours. So whatever that is.

STU: Okay. 1665 hours of golf. Glenn is playing with his iPad. Well, he actually bought an R2 unit.

GLENN: My sister is -- my sister is --

STU: Blame your sister, right? Because your sister controls the volume of your iPad.

GLENN: No, no. Most people know not to text me while I'm on the show. I'm just saying. Anyway...

STU: Maybe. Well, the point is, right now, Donald Trump on the golf tracker, Trump 14 times, Barack Obama zero. And, of course, I -- if it was zero to zero, there would not be a golf tracker.

GLENN: Right.

STU: This is up here now.

GLENN: Oh, my God. Now it's my wife --

STU: Why can't you -- throw the thing across the room?

PAT: You don't have the volume?

GLENN: I got --

PAT: Okay.

STU: Power off is another option.

GLENN: I have to have it because I use it to check the news when we go into the breaks.

STU: In the breaks, you can turn the power on.

GLENN: That takes too long to boot the damn thing up.

STU: Anyway, 14-nothing. And they will keep this up -- they will keep updating this thing until Donald Trump decides to stop playing golf, and then Barack Obama passes him. And they will be like, there's no point for this golf tracker anymore. Trump is not playing golf. It's not relevant to the American people. And they'll delete that it was ever on the site. It's just so frustrating.

GLENN: I just can't take the hypocrisy. And the absolute blindness. The blindness.

You know, we would -- we would come so far as a nation if they would say -- if somebody at PolitiFact would say, you know what, we realized that we mocked George Bush and made it into a big deal. And then we didn't do anything about Barack Obama. And that was wrong.

You know, when the country is in trouble, should the president be playing golf? I don't know. Blah, blah. But here are the facts on all of the presidents playing golf. You decide.

I wouldn't have a problem with that.

But any time that they say anything about golf, all I think of is, where were you last time? Oh, yeah, that's right. Where were you on the body count last time of all the people who died during missions? Oh, that's right. You didn't care. Now suddenly you do again. Where were you -- you notice this Russian spy thing has completely quieted down. I am telling you, with each passing day, the reason why that's quieting down is because the Obama administration clearly was involved.

You have, what's her name from the National Security Council

STU: Susan Rice.

GLENN: Susan Rice. The minute she was involved, all of a sudden the media stopped talking about it.

JEFFY: Oh. Oh.

GLENN: Uh-oh.

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.

The less-than-favorable reaction to Caitlyn Jenner's bid for governor of California as a Republican has shown that leftists and so-called "transgender rights activist" care more about political party than actual transgender rights. Despite the fact that if she wins, Jenner would be the first trans governor in our nation's history — and prove that Republicans aren't 'transphobic' — Leftist activists would rather back Gavin Newsom — a cisgender, white male.

"Make no mistake: we can't wait to elect a #trans governor of California. But @Caitlyn_Jenner spent years telling the #LGBTQ+ community to trust Donald Trump. We saw how that turned out. Now she wants us to trust her? Hard pass," tweeted Equality California, one of the state's largest LGBTQ-rights groups.

"With all due respect, @Caitlyn_Jenner, you are running as a Republican?! Republicans deny your existence and are trying to erase trans youth. HELL NO," tweeted leftist activist and actress Alyssa Milano.

"Well done Caitlyn Jenner, running for governor wins you the one medal you never got: stupidest mother***ker on earth. Running as a Trump Republican & entering a world that hates you," tweeted "Sons of Anarchy" star Ron Perlman.

In this clip from the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere discussed the Left's hostile reaction to Jenner's candidacy for California governor and agreed that leftist trans activists are showing themselves to be more "leftists" than "trans activists."

"If Caitlyn Jenner did, let's say, run for governor and win as a Republican, wouldn't that go a long way to advance what [trans rights activists'] goal supposedly is? Like, if you really believe Republicans hate trans people and what you want is for society to have trans people accepted more broadly, what better way to accomplish that than having a Republican trans candidate?" Stu asked.

"Yeah, see, but you just said the key words: 'If you really believe.' They don't really believe anything. I don't think they even really believe that Republicans hate gay people. I don't think they actually believe that. That's just a slogan that's been drilled in their head," Glenn said. "It doesn't have anything to do with race or gender, or really anything else. It has everything to do with politics. That's it."

The New York Times reported this week that U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate and former Secretary of State, John Kerry, allegedly leaked classified Israeli military information to one of its biggest foes: Iran. So, where's the media outcry?

Donald Trump Jr. joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the allegations against Kerry and the corporate media's blatant hypocrisy and the Left's double standards.

"It's sort of amazing what you can get away with if you're a Democrat," Trump Jr. said. "I would think, Glenn, these people would lose their minds if someone in the Trump administration did this."
