It Didn’t Take Long to Politicize the New York Attack

What’s going on?

As usual, both political “teams” are trying to spin the latest tragedy to fit their agenda. After the terrorist attack in New York City on Tuesday, President Donald Trump pointed at Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer for supporting the “diversity visa” program that reportedly allowed suspect Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov to come into the country.

So what did Trump tweet this time?

“I have just ordered Homeland Security to step up our already Extreme Vetting program. Being politically correct is fine, but not for this! The terrorist came into our country through what is called the ‘Diversity Visa Lottery Program,’ a Chuck Schumer beauty,” Trump said in a pair of tweets on Tuesday.

Glenn’s take:

On today’s show, Glenn corrected the record on who officially gave us that immigration policy: a Republican president.

“It’s actually not a ‘Chuck Schumer beauty,’” Glenn fact-checked the tweet. “Do you know who signed that bill into law?” he asked. “George H.W. Bush.”

VOICE: You got kids in there? All right. Hold on.

GLENN: This is the sound yesterday in New York City, as an Islamic terrorist --

VOICE: Are you okay? Oh, my God. Are you okay? Oh, my God. Oh, my God. Oh, my God.

GLENN: -- slammed into the back of a school bus.

VOICE: Oh, my God. Oh, my God.

GLENN: Two kids were hurt. One seriously -- critical condition today.

VOICE: Right here.

GLENN: So what are we talking about? I mean, it didn't take long to politicize the terrorist attack yesterday in New York City. It's in full swing. This time, it's our side: Donald Trump immediately took to Twitter to blame Senator Chuck Schumer for the attacker, Sighpov, for being in the country in the first place. Trump tweeted that the murderer came to our country through what was called the Diversity Visa Lottery Program, a Chuck Schumer beauty. It's actually not a Chuck Schumer beauty.

Listen. I'll give you the facts in a second. He went on to write, we're fighting hard for merit-based immigration. No more Democrat lottery systems. We have to get much tougher and much smarter. Schumer fired back with a tweet. I guess it's not too soon to politicize a tragedy. You've got to be kidding me, coming from Schumer. Stop it. Both sides, stop it.

Chuck Schumer, the king of politicizing. So please, I don't want to hear it from either of you. Can we be adults! Do you know who signed that bill into law? Chuck Schumer was just one of the cosponsors. You know who signed that into law? George H.W. Bush.

So it's not a Democratic thing. Both sides were involved in that. Instead of typing snarky comments to one another, why don't you start using your platform to talk about Ryan Nash?

Ryan Nash was the police officer, routine call when he was faced with an unimaginable situation. He came face-to-face with Sighpov. Twenty-eight-year-old officer knew what he had to do: stop the killing spree.

He shot him yesterday. Who knows what other atrocities would have occurred, if Nash had not stopped the attacker. Can we take a moment and just thank our police officers for being there? Can we be adults and stop the mind less tweeting and focus on what matters most?

Far-left elites are using COVID to ‘reset’ America to socialism

Both Governor Newsom (California) and Governor Whitmer (Michigan) currently are being challenged by their state courts and governments for tyrannical policies issued during the COVID pandemic. And that's GREAT news because the 'Great Reset' continues to be pushed by far-left elites around the world…and Biden's team is in full support. Glenn explains how the Great Reset — a plan issued by the World Economic Forum — aims to use our current pandemic as a means to an end; they'll use COVID as an excuse to push 'stakeholder capitalism,' something similar to the economic system used today in China or the one used in 1930s Germany. Listen, as Glenn explains the TERRIFYING details to their plan…

Megyn Kelly UNCENSORED: It's Not Time to Unify, It's Time to FIGHT | Ep 88

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show." Now, Megyn and Glenn break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, Leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner … and is Fox News finished? Megyn and Glenn reminisce on their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with Donald Trump) and also give a look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred.

How the downfall of socialist Yugoslavia is STRIKINGLY similar to America today

Glenn shares a now-viral video of a woman from Yugoslavia, who says she wants to warn Americans about what could become of our free nation soon. She details the history of her country and explains how leaders there used different tactics and phases to implement socialism so that they could gain total control. And, terrifyingly, the phases she describes are STRIKINGLY similar to the events and changes we've experienced in America over the past year.

Glenn SNAPS over Dem corruption: ‘It’s NOT OVER!’

Glenn has had enough of exposing scandal after scandal, just for everyone to look the other way: Benghazi, Hillary Clinton's emails, Joe and Hunter Biden's dealings in Ukraine and China...the list goes on, but no consequences are ever paid. So while the mainstream media has called the election for Joe Biden, and insists no one can question it, Glenn gives a rallying cry to conservatives. Many of the over 71 million people who voted for President Trump are split between frustration and an urge to do something. The multiple allegations of election fraud are largely out of our hands, and Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process to ensure our voting systems are fair. But that doesn't mean we have to sit on our hands.
