Glenn Beck: Obama's Campaign Comedy

GLENN: This is just a theory of mine. I believe Barack Obama is actually Jerry Seinfeld. Have you seen Jerry Seinfeld together with Barack Obama? I haven't seen him. And here's my may I approach the bench, your Honor? I would like to introduce Barack Obama audio as Exhibit A. Here it is, my case, Barack Obama is actually Jerry Seinfeld and this whole campaign thing has been to launch some comedy movie or I don't know what it is, but I think he's Jerry Seinfeld. Here it is.

OBAMA: The other day I was in a town hall meeting and I laid out my plans for investing $15 billion a year, energy efficient cars and a new electricity grid and all this. Somebody said, well, what can I do? What can individuals do? So I told them something simple. I said, you know what, you can inflate your tires to the proper levels.

GLENN: No, hang on. I'm just kidding. I didn't mean that, inflate your actually I just said to him, "Hey, you got $15 billion? (Laughing)." No, no, no, no, don't worry about that because I don't need the money, no, no, I was serious about the inflating the tires thing to the proper levels.

OBAMA: And that if everybody in America inflated their tires to the proper level, we would actually probably save more oil

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop. Hang on. We would probably actually save more. We would probably I mean, are you beginning to hear the Seinfeld here just a little bit? We would probably actually begin to save more. Maybe it's just me.

OBAMA: And all the oil that we get from John McCain drilling right below his feet there, wherever it is that he was going to wherever he was going to drill.

GLENN: (Laughing). That's great. Wherever he's going to drill. I mean, what's the deal with John McCain? What's with all this drilling thing John McCain is talking about? I mean, does he think there's oil just beneath the surface of the Earth or something? That's crazy. Just hanging around down at the bottom of the Earth, does he think there's some sort of a substance under the ground that can be refined into fuel and power our cars and trucks? This guy's crazy. I mean, what's next? The same substance can be made into tires or plastic? I mean, where is this guy getting this stuff?

OBAMA: So now the Republicans are going around.

GLENN: Here it is.

OBAMA: This is the kind of thing they do. I don't understand it.

GLENN: Stop. You've got to play that again! This is a comedy routine.

OBAMA: So now the Republicans are going around.

GLENN: Yeah.

OBAMA: This is the kind of thing they do. I don't understand it. They're going around. They are sending, like, little tire gauges.

GLENN: I just don't get this whole game of politics. They're taking something I said and trying to make a point with it? They're taking my positions and telling people about my positions? What's up with that?

OBAMA: Making fun of this idea as if this is Barack Obama's energy plan.

GLENN: They're acting like this whole tire gauge is my energy plan. Where do these guys get this stuff? What are you drinking tonight? Do we have any Republicans here tonight? You, sir, you in the front row there, you're a little overweight. Not like me with my basketball skills and my nice tight abs. No wonder you vote for the party with the elephant on front. Am I right? Guys, back me up. No, I'm just kidding, I'm just funning you, sir. No, seriously, forget the tax cuts. We need calorie cuts for the wealthiest 1%. Isn't that right, fatty fat fatso? Guys, back me up on this.

OBAMA: Now, two points. One, they know they're lying about what my energy plan is. But the other thing is they're making fun

GLENN: Stop. They're making fun. All you need is a good laugh track behind this thing. First of all, wouldn't they either be lying or making fun, or do we just get to choose like multiple choice, we can just choose the one that works for us? Do you remember those books where you used to read and it would say, like, if you want this to happen, you know, those adventure books where you would read and you would say, hmmm, I'm going to choose this adventure and you go to Page 56? I think that's what this is. It's like choose your own adventure. They're either lying or they're making fun, and the one that's making fun is much more fun.

Now listen to what he says they're making fun of.

OBAMA: About what my energy plan is. But the other thing is they're making fun of a step that every expert says would absolutely reduce our oil consumption by 3 to 4%.

GLENN: It's like these guys are being ignorant. Listen to this. I mean, every expert says it would absolutely reduce their oil consumption by 3 to 4%. By the way, don't do the math on that one because it's not even close if you actually look into it. But I figure if I say things like "Every expert" and "Absolutely" and these guys are crazy, I don't know what you're talking about, you are probably going to buy it. Speaking of buying, what's the deal on the grocery store these days? I mean, you got all these choices, paper or plastic, plastic or paper. I mean, it's crazy! What's the deal with choices? You know, it's just too much. Oh. I guess I'm not pro choice anymore (laughing). I know, I'm only joshing you, huh?

Is there any more of this thing?

OBAMA: It's like these guys take pride in being ignorant, you know?

GLENN: You know?

OBAMA: They think it's funny that they're making fun of something that's actually true.

GLENN: That's actually true.

OBAMA: They need to do their homework because this is serious business.

GLENN: Sure is.

OBAMA: Instead of running ads about Paris Hilton and Britney Spears, they should go talk to some energy experts and actually make a difference.

GLENN: Can you believe these Republicans? They're running ads with Paris Hilton in them. Of course, I compared myself to Paris Hilton months before and that was okay, but hey, what's the deal with these Republicans? I mean, what's going on? Why are all these choices?

Shortly after appearing on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" last Thursday, Los Angeles-based emergency medicine specialist Dr. Simone Gold got a call saying she was fired for speaking out about the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine in a now-banned viral video.

Dr. Gold returned to the radio program Monday to detail exactly what happened, the reason the hospitals gave for her firing, and how they threatened to fire her colleagues as well if she "didn't go quietly."

"Most emergency physicians work at more than one [hospital], as I do, and I've actually been fired from both," she told Glenn. "They told me that I appeared in an embarrassing video, and therefore, I would no longer be welcome to work there ... then they said, if I didn't go quietly and I made a fuss, they would have all the doctors in the group, you know, they'd have to go and they'll get a whole new doctor group."

Dr. Gold said she does not regret speaking out about hydroxychloroquine during the controversial "White Coat Summit" news conference held in Washington, D.C., last week. A video of the news conference quickly went viral on social media before being removed by Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and others for allegedly making false claims related to COVID-19.

"Bring it on," she said. "I want to continue to live in America. I want my children to continue to live in America. I don't want them to grow up in a place like China. When you get to a point where, not only can I not speak as a scientist, as a doctor, for what I know to be absolutely true, but you then want to cancel me and my colleagues, this is not okay. I would much rather fight than not fight ... and I want everybody to know that there are literally millions and millions of Americans who are on our side. Millions. I believe it's the majority."

Glenn then asked Dr. Gold to weigh in on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's new guidelines encouraging schools to reopen in the fall and the left's relentless drive to keep them closed.

"There's no actual scientific debate whatsoever if schools should open. None. There's no scientific debate. There's no serious person who thinks schools shouldn't open. Now, [through] some governors and policy makers, there's pressure being brought to bear on school districts, but there's no actual scientific debate. So it's going to come down to parents pressuring their local school districts to act in a responsible fashion."

Fox News host Greg Gutfeld joined Glenn on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to talk about his new book, "The Plus: Self-Help for People Who Hate Self-Help."

Greg admits he is probably the last person who should write a self-help book. Nevertheless, he offers his offbeat advice on how to save America during what has become one of the most tumultuous times in history, as well as drinking while tweeting (spoiler: don't do it).

He also shares his "evolution" on President Donald Trump, his prediction for the election, and what it means to be an agnostic-atheist.

In this clip, Greg shares what he calls his "first great epiphany" on how dangerous cancel culture has become.

"I believe that cancel culture is the first successful work-around of the First Amendment," he said. "Because freedom of speech doesn't protect me from my career being ruined, my livelihood being destroyed, or me getting so depressed I commit suicide. Cancel culture is the first successful work-around of freedom of speech. It can oppress your speech with the scepter of destruction. We don't have freedom of speech anymore."

Dr. Simone Gold joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to set the record straight about hydroxychloroquine -- what it is, how it works, and the real reason for all the current controversy surrounding a centuries-old medication.

Dr. Gold is a board certified emergency physician. She graduated from Chicago Medical School before attending Stanford University Law School. She completed her residency in emergency medicine at Stony Brook University Hospital in New York, and worked in Washington D.C. for the Surgeon General, as well for the chairman of the Committee on Labor and Human Resources. She works as an emergency physician on the front lines, whether or not there is a pandemic, and her clinical work serves all Americans from urban inner city to suburban and the Native American population. Her legal practice focuses on policy issues relating to law and medicine.

She is also the founder of America's frontline doctors, a group of doctors who have been under attack this week for speaking out about hydroxychloroquine during a news conference held outside the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington D.C.

On the program, Dr. Gold emphasized that the controversy over hydroxychloroquine is a "complete myth."

"Hydroxychloroquine is an analogue or a derivative of quinine, which is found in tree bark. It's the most noncontroversial of medications that there is," she explained.

"It's been around for centuries and it's been FDA-approved in the modern version, called hydroxychloroquine, for 65 years. In all of that time, [doctors] used it for breast-feeding women, pregnant women, elderly, children, and immune compromised. The typical use is for years or even decades because we give it mostly to RA, rheumatoid arthritis patients and lupus patients who need to be on it, essentially, all of their life. So, we have extensive experience with it ... it's one of the most commonly used medications throughout the world."

Dr. Gold told Glenn she was surprised when the media suddenly "vomited all over hydroxychloroquine", but initially chalked it up to the left's predictable hatred for anything President Donald Trump endorses. However, when the media gave the drug Remdesivir glowing reviews, despite disappointing clinical trial results, she decided to do some research.

"[Remdesivir] certainly wasn't a fabulous drug, but the media coverage was all about how fabulous it was. At that moment, I thought that was really weird. Because it's one thing to hate hydroxychloroquine because the president [endorsed] it. But it's another thing to give a free pass to another medicine that doesn't seem that great. I thought that was really weird, so I started looking into it. And let me tell you, what I discovered was absolutely shocking," she said.

According to the mainstream media's COVID-19 narrative, the president is "ignoring" the crisis.

On tonight's "Glenn TV" special, Glenn Beck exposes the media's last four months of political theater that has helped shape America's confusion and fear over coronavirus. And now, with a new school year looming on the horizon, the ongoing hysteria has enormous ramifications for our children, but the media is working overtime to paint the Trump administration as anti-science Neanderthals who want to send children and teachers off to die by reopening schools.

Glenn fights back with the facts and interviews the medical doctor Big Tech fears the most. Dr. Simone Gold, founder of America's Frontline Doctors, stands up to the media's smear campaign and explains why she could no longer stay silent in her fight against coronavirus fear.
