'Shut the hell up': Glenn Beck rips CNN's Don Lemon for depicting Trump supporters as ignorant 'boomer rube demo'

On Tuesday's radio program, Glenn Beck tore into CNN host Don Lemon and his panelists who mocked supporters of President Donald Trump as ignorant, out-of-touch, country bumpkins in a segment that aired during live coverage of the Senate impeachment trial on Saturday.

During the segment, GOP strategist Rick Wilson told Lemon, "Donald Trump couldn't find Ukraine on a map if you had the letter U and a picture of an actual physical crane next to it."

"[Trump] knows that this is, you know, an administration defined by ignorance of the world," he continued. "And so that's partly him playing to the base and playing to their audience, you know, the credulous boomer rube demo that backs Donald Trump. That wants to think that 'Donald Trump's the smart one and y'all, y'all elitists are dumb!'" he added in a mock southern accent.

"'You elitists with your geography, and your maps, and your spelling!'" chimed in CNN contributor and New York Times columnist Wajahat Ali, while Lemon guffawed and snorted.

"'And your math and your readin'," Wilson added as the trio continued to indulge in smug merriment.

"Let me just say this to the, yes, the elitists," Glenn said of Lemon and his cohorts at CNN. "What is an elitist? Somebody who thinks they're better than everyone else. And what was that? A demonstration that you think that half of the country that voted for this president, half of the country, is nothing but ignorant. Just dummies that can't even read. That is the pure definition of an elitist. Someone who thinks they're better than everyone else."

Glenn went on to note that this is exactly the kind of thoughtless divisiveness the left has been accusing him of for years.

"I am so sick and tired of anybody, anybody in the press coming to me and saying, 'Do you know what you did to divide this country?' Yes. Yes, I admit it. But it's nothing like what you did now. It's nothing like what you've been doing for the last three years," he said.

"Shut the hell up," Glenn added. "Do you know what you're doing to divide this country? Don't ever, ever say that to me again."

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."
