GLENN: Oh, jeez. All right, here's our number, 888 727 BECK, 888 727 BECK. What we're going to do is we're going to do a draft pick, and you can pick your candidate. Are we just doing Obama today or are we doing Obama and McCain?

STU: I think we'll do Obama. Supposedly his pick is going to come tomorrow or the next day.

GLENN: So you get to pick, obviously the first one in, you know. You get the pick of the litter, and the one who picks the candidate that Obama picks, we'll give you something from the web store.

STU: I'm going to lobby here for the listeners. I know you don't care about

GLENN: One of everything from the web store? One of everything?

STU: Now I'm lobbying against you and against the listeners. It should be something in between.

GLENN: What a flip flopper. I don't care. You put the package together. They can pick whatever they want.

STU: It should be a good package.

GLENN: Fine, fine.

STU: Why are you trying to shut down the listeners?

GLENN: I'm saying give them one of everything from the website. I don't really care! Holy cow.

STU: They are picking the vice president of the United States potentially.

GLENN: No, Obama is. McCain's not, by the way. He's not picking the vice president. He's been picking the vice presidential nominee but not the vice presidential vice president, he's not.

STU: Polls are within 2 points.

GLENN: I know.

STU: Who knows what could happen. Let's

GLENN: When those Republicans pull out, you know, stuff out of their dirty tricks bag.

STU: Well, Glenn, luckily for the Republicans, everyone's so racist or this wouldn't be close. I tell you.

GLENN: Boy, you aren't kidding. Boy, the racism here in America.

STU: Did you notice his name is funny? It's still funny.

GLENN: Do you know I pulled out a dollar yesterday and I just looked at it. I was looking at Barack Obama on TV and I was going to pay something and I pulled out a dollar and went (gasping), he doesn't look like the guy on the dollar bill!

I know that happened just yesterday, but it happened the day before and it will probably happen tomorrow, too. I just, because I forget. I'm like, that guy's running for President. (Gasping). He doesn't look like the guy on the dollar bill! Here's our number, 888 727 BECK. Who do you choose as the vice presidential nominee for Barack Obama? Remember, this is going to be tough. Think like Obama because if you pick what he picks, you win. 888 727 BECK.

(OUT 9:41)

GLENN: All right. We go to John in New Hampshire for the how do they do this in the sports world? You should do this because I don't

STU: You have to do it in the same way every time because the commissioner always says it the same way every time. So it's like with the first pick of the 2008 Barack Obama vice presidential draft

GLENN: No, it's got to sound more boring than that. Aren't they usually a little more boring than that?

STU: I can do it more boring. Would the first pick of the 2008 vice presidential draft for Barack Obama, John from New Hampshire selects...

CALLER: Yeah, Glenn. Hillary Clinton. Because if he's going to if he's going to win, he's got to have her base.

STU: Wow, that's a shocking first pick.

CALLER: It's a good first pick.

STU: I don't know. You think?

GLENN: It's not going to happen. You're listening to John? You talk about John after we say goodbye, John, it's great to talk to you, then he goes away and we're safe.

CALLER: Well, I'm a Republican. So I'm hoping that he goes with Hillary.

GLENN: You know what? What is she trading on

DAN: She's trading at 10 and the leaders, Biden is at 30.

GLENN: You know what, here's the reason why he's not going to pick Hillary Clinton. Because the secret service can't watch both of them. You know what I'm saying?

CALLER: Yeah, but if they're trying to get the other one whacked, it will be all right.

GLENN: That's exactly right. Look, if I'm the President and Hillary Clinton is my vice president, I immediately say to the secret service: By the way, I need a taste tester and I need to know that you're one of the secret service that worked in the White House before and hated Hillary Clinton. I need a taste tester. And forget about I'd go out in crowds, yeah, whatever, I got that handled; keep an eye on her, will you, and him. He's got a lot of time on his hands.

CALLER: But it's change for the children. So it will be okay.

GLENN: Change for the children, thanks a lot, John. Oh, we need to get John's

STU: We're getting information as we go.

GLENN: All right. Ralph in Delaware.

CALLER: Glenn, thank you for taking my call.

GLENN: Hang on.

STU: The second pick of the 2008 Barack Obama vice presidential draft, Ralph of Delaware selects?

CALLER: Ralph would like to first thank Glenn for the speech he gave at the NRA convention. It was one of the most wonderful speeches I ever heard. Nancy Pelosi.

GLENN: I like him. Who? What? Nancy Pelosi? Are you out of your mind?

STU: The second pick?

CALLER: It's a left field pick.

GLENN: It's a very, very left field. It's so far left

CALLER: It would ensure a Republican victory.

GLENN: What? All right, Ralph, thanks a lot, man. It kind of you know, he starts out with, hey, I'm a big fan and that speech made more sense than anything. It's Nancy Pelosi, she's come on! Who would give a compliment and then take it away with a Nancy Pelosi draft pick!

STU: Excellent point.

GLENN: All right, let's go to Ken in New York.

CALLER: Tim Kaine.

STU: We didn't do the intro. Don't you guys understand how drafts work? With the third pick of the 2008 vice presidential Obama draft, Ken from New York selects?

CALLER: Tim Kaine because he puts Virginia in play unfortunately.

GLENN: Can I tell you something? I think that's that's my pick for him. I know everybody's going with Biden and everything else. I go with McCain only because of who's the guy? Indiana?

STU: Bayh.

GLENN: He needs Indiana you know, he needs these states that don't usually, you know, vote crazy.

CALLER: We have one in Virginia. So I'm afraid he could pull Virginia out and that's scary, but keep up the good work.

GLENN: Thanks, man, I appreciate it, Ken. Tim Kaine, how's he doing on InTrade?

DAN: Tim Kaine is actually, he's down at, like, 22. But the State of Virginia is actually 51.5 to 48.5. So that's

GLENN: For winning for

DAN: The Democrats are ahead. So that would probably you know.

STU: Well, you know, Kaine, it's one of those things, you try to pick somebody who's going to get you a state but you don't want to get somebody

GLENN: Who's going to hurt you. That's the problem with him. It's the dynamic duo of inexperience. It's like, I don't know, I've been here for three months, I can't even find the light switch, I don't even know where that is.

STU: If you have a guy who comes out and, you know, the possibility of Barack Obama not doing a good job, you never know. There could be an impeachment because, you know, he's not qualified or doesn't, you know isn't experienced enough. Then who is your backup? You are going to another guy who's

GLENN: Wait a minute. I'm just trying to get my arms around this. You think there's a possibility of impeachment?

STU: I didn't say there was a possibility. What else? You are picking a vice presidential candidate based on the fact that the President wouldn't be doing the job anymore. There's several scenarios. I highlighted one of them because I don't feel like talking about the others.

GLENN: I'm sorry, so riddled with ADD. I just heard you thought there might be a possibility of impeachment. Let me ask you this. No, that was a good point you made.

STU: I know it is. If you would listen to it, you would understand.

GLENN: You just go on and on, I can't do it very long.

STU: Where is your medicine? Can you start taking your medicine again?

GLENN: Here's the thing. Here's the thing. Have you, have you thought about this. Pick between these two. Which do you think and I'm not saying that this is I'm not saying this is high probability. I'm just asking, in the world of probability, which one do you think is more likely in an Obama campaign, that he's impeached or he declares himself, you know, President under really difficult conditions and I'm going to relinquish this presidency as soon as I can?

STU: As soon as I get around to it?

GLENN: Yeah. Which one? That he's more likely to become Mussolini or more likely to be chased out by congress? Which one?

STU: I don't think that

GLENN: I'm not asking you, I'm not saying that these have

STU: You can't let me get through thee words without losing attention.

GLENN: I know what you're going to say.

STU: What are you going to say?

GLENN: I'm not telling you. You know why? Because you're insane.

STU: I'm not insane. You think I'm insane because you only catch every sixth word.

GLENN: What? All right, what's your point?

STU: Now I'm not giving it to you.

GLENN: I don't want it. I didn't want it in the first place. Okay, I did. Tell me. Go ahead.

STU: I don't remember what it was.

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.
