Blog: Glenn’s Night in the Emergency Room

GLENN: I want to thank Pat for filling in for me. I called him, like, at 4:00 in the morning to roust him out of bed and see if he would fill in. I had just finished giving a speech at a fundraiser on Wednesday night and I came home and Joe, who's a new researcher, he actually came over to the house and we were going to finish up some work after this speech and my wife and I were -- we came into the house and Joe was with us and there was something downstairs in the basement that she wanted to show us. She's like, "I just cleaned up the whole basement." I'm like, "That's great, honey, I've got to see that." So I started going down the stairs and I was the first to go down the stairs and I got to the top stair and I slipped all the way down a flight of stairs and was in the hospital.

You know, there's one place that should have valet parking. It's at the hospital. Don't you think? I mean, don't you think you should pull up in the emergency room and go, valet, help me. Please take the keys from me. I'm just thinking that maybe that would be a good place, but no.

So I laid down at the bottom of the stairs for a while and the thought, "Help, I can't get up" did come to mind. Luckily my wife and my friend were with me and so I sat there for about 20 minutes and had that typical debate, you know what I mean? Have you ever had that debate in your head like, "I really should go to the hospital, but, oh, that will be a pain in the neck." Ever had that debate where you know you should be going to the hospital. I mean, there was a moment there I thought I was having internal bleeding and I was still thinking, no, I don't want to go sit in that emergency room. So I debated back and forth whether I should go and finally my wife just said, we're getting the keys; you're going to the hospital. "No, no, I think I'm fine, I can almost -- nope, nope, can't get up yet."

So we piled into the car and my wife drove around trying to find a parking space, which was always -- I'm really kind of stuck on the valet parking thing at the hospitals. I really think they should have that. But anyway, we got inside and they walked me to a little room and said, take off all your clothes. "All right. If you have a knife, you can just cut them off me, please." So then told me to pee in a cup right away, which -- all right, I know this is more information than you need about me, but I'm very shy like things like that and I just looked at the nurse and I said, that ain't going to happen with all you people standing around. You know what I'm saying? I'm sorry. And the doctor came in and immediately gave me a ultrasound, and it's never really good when you hear the doctor behind you say, "There's a lot of liquid there, a lot of fluid. I don't know what that -- we should get him to a CAT scan right away." "Excuse me, Doc, what did you just say?" "Nothing, you're great, nothing. Are you feeling really cold right now?" "No." "Okay, just lay here. Whatever you do, don't walk towards the light."

So I go get a CAT scan and I was happy to know that it was being read in India and I said, pardon me? He said, "Yeah, we ship it to India to look at." I said, "You can't look at the CAT scan and figure out?" No, no, no, they're much better over there. After 11:00 at night, everything's read in India. I don't know if I feel comfortable with that. I mean, is this the same guy that's reading it that I call up and can't fix my computer? "Hello, it's me, Bob, yes, I just tried to fix..." no, I don't think I feel comfortable. Who is reading it over in India? "I don't know, some guy, Bob. He is also working on our computer as well."

So they come back and now the two doctors walk in at the same time. Only time I heard them was, "I don't know, that might be a small toy somewhere near his -- I think that's his liver and a small toy." And they both walk in and, "You're the luckiest guy alive." "Pardon me?" "Yeah, when you came in, we looked at each other and thought, oh, boy, this is going to be a bad one." Okay, you didn't tell me that. You just said don't walk towards the light. I don't even have a bruise on me today. I hurt like crazy. I bruised my ribs as I came down. Didn't break anything. My elbow was the size -- I mean, I looked like a -- you know, I walked in and I was like, "I am not an animal. I am a human being." You know, I kind of had that whole kind of John Merrick thing going for me, at least in the elbow area and the back area. So I slept all day yesterday but wanted to be here, wanted to be here for you. Bullcrap, they would cut my salary if I don't show up. "I wanted to be here for you." So I'm glad I'm -- well, I don't know. I was going to say I'm glad I'm alive but then again, have you seen gas prices lately?

So Harry Reid comes out and says John McCain, his plan to start offshore drilling is just the, you know, more of the same old ideas. I love that line. Failed policies of the past, the same old ideas. Drilling is? Really? "Oh, same old ideas." I don't think so. I don't think we've been doing that an awful lot. In fact, Harry, if I may be so bold, we're drilling and pumping out oil as fast now as we were in the 1940s. Same old ideas? We haven't built anything new here since Gerald Ford was in office. I think these -- when you say "Same old ideas," yeah, they are older than Jerry Ford but I don't remember all those gas price problems back before Jerry Ford. Sure, there was the -- oh, wait a minute. This time -- this is weird. The time that Saudi Arabia was holding us hostage back in the early Seventies. But before that there wasn't really an oil shortage problem, you know? It's weird, same old ideas.

You want to talk about the same old ideas, how about not drilling and putting on a sweater. That kind of sounds like Jimmy Carter. And if my memory serves right, I think I would rather have Jerry Ford as the President than Jimmy Carter, but what do I know. You know what I'm saying? I may have a small toy in my liver. So don't look at me for answers.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

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."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
