Glenn Beck: McCain


Glenn Beck is seen here in his darkened studio on the Insider Webcam, an exclusive feature available only to Glenn Beck Insiders. Learn more...

GLENN: So John McCain is dealing with the three possible candidates and I've heard a fourth today but I think this is just hype coming from Bloomberg. Fourth one is Bloomberg. John McCain, are you -- there's no way John McCain picks Michael Bloomberg.

STU: That makes no sense.

GLENN: No sense whatsoever.

STU: Yes, you know, they both agree on a couple of things like global warming and stuff.

GLENN: Second Amendment?

STU: Oh, my gosh.

GLENN: John McCain, the only thing he has going for him is he's good on the Second Amendment.

STU: That's not the only thing.

GLENN: One of them. I mean the war, too.

STU: But he is strong on the Second Amendment. Bloomberg's horrible on it.

GLENN: Horrible.

STU: Not to mention in all --

GLENN: Why would you do that.

STU: What possible person would -- it doesn't make any sense at all. You are not going to win New York anyway.

GLENN: No.

STU: There's no way.

GLENN: No.

STU: The only thing you would want to do, the only possible validity to that is because John McCain is a crappy fundraiser and if you have a guy who's going to donate $200 million of his own money, there's some reason you can understand it.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: But it still doesn't make enough sense. They don't agree on -- I mean, they don't agree on enough.

GLENN: Yeah. So I mean, it would just be a horrible move. Then there's Crist out of Florida. Here's my problem with Crist. He's too tan. I know --

STU: Very good point.

GLENN: I know that that might be a little shallow, but I think he's too tan. He's --how do you get a tan like that?

STU: Well, maybe you are working outside.

GLENN: Wait, wait, wait, wait.

STU: You've got to admire a guy with a tan like that.

GLENN: I want to know, all of a sudden does the state assembly have some sort of a sunroof?

STU: I don't know the answer to that.

GLENN: Capital building?

STU: I like a guy who can keep things in perspective.

GLENN: Come on! Somebody with a tan that much, you're George Hamilton. You're laying by the pool all the time. I don't want George Hamilton in there.

STU: I don't know. George Hamilton might be a good candidate as they don't consider George Hamilton. I don't know.

GLENN: Nobody's considered George Hamilton.

STU: Maybe we should consider George Hamilton.

GLENN: Now let's go on to Governor Jindal. I like him.

STU: Yeah, I like him a lot. He's definitely a rising star in the party.

GLENN: But he's like 12.

STU: Yeah, he's pretty young and he's only been governor for, what, a year?

GLENN: Yeah, but he was a congressman.

STU: Still, though, I mean I don't know that -- I mean, --

GLENN: Oh, I'm sorry, yeah, Barack Obama's experience is so extensive. I mean, at least he's run a state.

STU: But I think there's -- look, I can't answer for the Democrats and why they're only -- their two candidates both have been in office for, like, 16 weeks.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: But, you know, I think Jindal would be great. I think that he's probably not going to get it there time just because he hasn't -- isn't the requirement, the legal requirement to be --

GLENN: I'm sorry. Hang on. Could you transfer that to my screen?

STU: To be President is 35, right?

GLENN: Would you check? If that's Jack Bauer, I'd like to know. Would you just -- it might be Jack Bauer. He might be saying, I need to talk to the President, I need you to -- could you just, could you just tap into their servers? It could be. I don't know. Is it Jack Bauer?

STU: I think we're getting updated information here. We'll have this to you in just a second. This is breaking.

GLENN: Was it Jack Bauer? Is there a bomb ready to go off? Does he need me to do anything? Because I'll do it. I'll lie my face off to the people in charge here.

STU: Well, of course you would.

GLENN: That's right. To help Jack? You bet.

STU: It wasn't Jack Bauer, though.

GLENN: Oh. Who was it?

STU: It was a much less shapely person. We're going to be getting him on the phone here in a minute because he's got inside information on one of the topics we're talking about.

GLENN: Really?

STU: Uh-huh.

GLENN: Which topic?

STU: Governor Crist.

GLENN: Governor Crist? I forget that he's the governor.

STU: Right. He's the governor.

GLENN: Oh, yeah. Much less shapely. Jeffy?

CALLER: Yes, Mr. Beck. I hear you talking to the governor to the great state of Florida.

GLENN: He's too tan.

VOICE: You know, he claims that that is from his heritage, his Greek heritage. So you have to account for that.

GLENN: Are you saying that basically what I was saying was he's too Greek?

VOICE: Then you're a racist.

GLENN: Is that what it is? I'm a racist? Right.

VOICE: Letting you know.

GLENN: He's too tan. How does a man -- I'm sorry. I know Greek people. You fade a little bit.

VOICE: You don't know Florida Greek people.

GLENN: The man should be inside working. The man should be inside working. I'm just saying.

VOICE: He's out meeting and greeting people is what it is.

GLENN: He should not be out meeting and greeting people.

VOICE: When he's out meeting and greeting people, the sun darkens his skin with the Greek heritage. That's what he says.

GLENN: Do you think that -- no, he's lying. It's the golf course! Do you --

STU: I give him credit for it.

GLENN: You know what? I want him to roll up his sleeve. I want to see if he has a farmer's tan. I want to see. And this is not in a weird way. I want him to take off his shirt. If he's tan all over, he's laying by the pool some place.

VOICE: He shouldn't have to prove himself to racist people like you.

GLENN: He should prove that he's not tan all over. I want to see his tan line.

STU: We should point out that, just so the audience is clear, that this is definitely in a weird way. Like, what you're doing now is definitely weird.

GLENN: No. You don't think we have a right to see his tan lines?

VOICE: Why?

STU: Definitely not.

VOICE: No.

GLENN: Because I'm telling you, and this might be a good reason to hire him, I don't think he's actually even running the state. I think he's got all of his calls just transferred right to his pool. I want to talk to somebody who --

STU: That's who I want.

GLENN: I want to talk to somebody who has actually been on the phone with Governor Crist and then swear they heard, like, pool splashing. And he's like, no, I'm at a signing ceremony. That was a pool splash.

VOICE: Listen, he claims that he swims every day for exercise.

GLENN: Ah, now we're starting to get to the truth, uh-huh.

VOICE: That's what the man says.

GLENN: "I swim for exercise usually between 10:00 and 3:00 in the afternoon."

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
