Glenn's Awkwardly Beautiful Encounter With Angelina Jolie

He really shouldn't be let out in public --- or allowed to mingle with celebrities.

Today from Los Angeles, Glenn recounted a rather awkward encounter with actress Angelina Jolie while walking the halls at Netflix, admiring a painting of Frank Underwood from House of Cards.

"We need to, like, build a Popemobile for you and move you from meeting to meeting inside of it," Co-host Stu Burguiere said after hearing the uncomfortable retelling.

"It's just bad. It's so bad," Glenn said.

Only in Hollywood . . . and only with Glenn Beck.

GLENN: I was at Netflix yesterday, and I'm going in -- it's an absolutely beautiful studio, and it's the only -- I'm trying to remember the old Bronson studios where they used to shoot Gunsmoke and every --

STU: Perfect strangers.

GLENN: Did they used to shoot perfect strangers there?

PAT: That's a Bronson kind of reference.

STU: Bronson show.

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: Oh, okay. So anyway --

STU: Wait, people didn't get that immediately? I can't believe it.

GLENN: I know. It's a good reference. It's like my Chitty Chitty Bang Bang references that people don't get.

STU: Except it was a great show with Mark Baker.

GLENN: I got it. I got it. So anyway, I go inside, and it's this beautiful, beautiful amazing brand-new building on the lot, and so I walk in, and I'm going back past security, and I'm going back into some of the offices, and I'm walking down this really long pure white hallway. And at the end is this amazing painting of Frank Underwood. Okay? And he's sitting -- I don't even know if they've used this before. I don't know if I've seen it before. But it's this beautiful painting of Frank sitting in the Abraham Lincoln chair from the Lincoln memorial. Have you seen that?

STU: I don't know if you had. It's the president of "House of Cards," the Netflix show; right?

GLENN: Yes. So he's sitting in this chair, and it's this -- I don't know. Six foot painting, and it's spectacular. So I'm walking down the hallway with Tyler, who works with me, and we're walking down the hallway and Tyler has, you know, some artistic sensibilities in him as well. And so we're getting toward the end of the hallway, and I've just been admiring this quietly for most of the hallway, and then I start talking about the painting. And I'm, like, man, that is beautiful, and I'm saying it loud because we're alone, inning, in the hallway. And I said that is beautiful. Look at that. Fantastic. And as I say fantastic and Tyler says "Yeah; right? I know." I begin to turn in the hallway, and both of us at the same time, our eyes drift down past the Frank hands and the Frank face because it's a gigantic painting, and we start to scan down the painting at the same time and there standing right in front of the painting that we hadn't noticed the whole time is Angelina Jolie.

STU: Like, the real person?

GLENN: The real person.

STU: Not a picture of Angelina Jolie.

GLENN: Actual Angelina Jolie, and so she's looking at us as we are looking just above her head at the painting, and I'm, like, that's beautiful, huh? Look at that.

[Laughter]

Fantastic. And I turn, and I'm, like, "Oh, dear god." Flump.

STU: Did you get a restraining order yet?

GLENN: Not yet. So I walk into this meeting, and the first thing they said was "Did you meet Angelina?"

And I was, like, I didn't, no. She was in the hall. I didn't notice. What are you talking about?

[Laughter]

Beautiful. Look at that. Fantastic.

STU: Did it really fit -- like did you think that she thought you were talking about her?

GLENN: I have no idea. I just -- I just immediately looked away because my thought when I saw her was "Beautiful. Fantastic. Look at that."

[Laughter]

STU: Oh, no. Oh, no. You really shouldn't be allowed out.

GLENN: I should not. You should not let me talk to celebrities or see celebrities or talk to anybody. I just --

STU: We need to, like, build a Popemobile for you and move you from meeting to meeting inside of it.

GLENN: It's just bad. It's so bad. Beautiful.@

And, you know, the bad thing is if she knew I was talking about the painting, she would be, like, what the hell's wrong with me? I'm chop liver? You're looking at the painting?

STU: Looking at a painting of Kevin Spacey?

GLENN: It was weird because the way it was in the hallway and the stark white and the black and white painting of this. It was really stunning. But she was -- it was a very dark painting, and she's wearing all black, and so it looked like, you know, when you first saw her, I mean -- I don't know how we missed her head. It was, like, her head was, like, right in the center of his, you know, chest or something just floating there. I don't know how we didn't see it. You're seeing up on the feed today. That's not the picture, the one that's being shown on the -- that's not the picture. The one that's on The Blaze TV.

STU: Okay.

GLENN: It's of him sitting in the chair from Abraham Lincoln, the one in the Lincoln memorial.

STU: That sounds pretty amazing.

GLENN: Yeah, it was -- it was not as nice as Angelina Jolie.

STU: No. Not even a bit close, I would think.

GLENN: No. She looked beautiful.

STU: I'm sure she did. I know what she does.

GLENN: Yeah. You know how some people -- you know how some people look different than they do on TV?

STU: Uh-huh.

GLENN: Like, me, I look much, much fatter.

STU: On which one? TV or not TV?

GLENN: It's just the same.

But anyway, she looked exactly like she does in the movies. She was beautiful, so I just thought I would throw that in.

STU: That's a good thing to be able to pull off. If you can pull that off, that's pretty impressive.

GLENN: Yeah, I did think about turning around and going so I hear you're single now, huh?

STU: No, you didn't. Please don't tell me that.

[Laughter]

Did you get at least any teases on what's coming up on the next season of "House of Cards"? Did you get any information out of this meeting at all?

GLENN: No. But I did play fan boy a little bit on Daredevil.

STU: Oh, right.

GLENN: And I said come on, man. Did you guys cancel daredevil? Or is it coming back? And I don't know if I can say it. I don't know if they've released it. But I know. And you don't.

STU: Well, Netflix, good luck with hiding that information for the next week.

[Laughter]

JEFFY: I would go ahead and release that now.

STU: It's time to get out in front of that story, whatever it is.

GLENN: Beautiful, huh?

Cubans NEED internet access. So why isn’t Biden providing It?

The United States has the technology to deliver much-needed internet access to pro-freedom Cubans after the communist government restricted their access amid protests, FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr tells Glenn. But it's all up to President Biden to approve this action. Carr joins Glenn to explain how easy it would be to implement this technology, and he also comments on the future of 5G and a free and open internet in the United States amid rising calls for government-led censorship.

WATCH: Jan. 6 FALLOUT: Biden's Domestic Terrorism Threat Is YOU

The Capitol riot was foolish and tragic, but Pelosi's Select Committee "investigation" on the January 6 "insurrection" has devolved into a show trial complete with bad tears and bad acting. But this is just a charade designed to distract us.

What's going on behind closed doors is truly nefarious. The Biden White House and the U.S. national security apparatus are seizing that event to redefine domestic terrorism and expand the powers of government to prevent it. There is an alarming blueprint for sweeping government action called the "National Strategy for Countering Domestic Terrorism," put together by the National Security Council.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck exposes the collusion between the Biden administration and Big Tech to surveil, root out, and silence America's deplorables – all in the name of national security.

'They've taken away the symbol of the American flag': Restaurant owner speaks out after being FINED for flying flags on July 4

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

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?
