Glenn Beck: Olbermann gushes over Michelle




MSNBC "Anchor" Keith Olbermann gushes over Michelle Obama's speech...

GLENN: Here's the number, 888 727 BECK. Let's Christina, why don't you screen the phone calls. Let's get a bunch of people up and see what people said about Michelle Obama and then I'm going to play some clips for you. I'm going to tell you exactly how I feel about it. We've got some more on this insanity that is the green, the greenest convention ever. Really? The most sustainable convention ever. Why would I want to sustain this convention? Just keep it going? I don't think so. Have you noticed that they are not really talking about that? They made this big deal out of it? I wonder why. Do you think maybe it's because, oh, crap, this will remind people that we're really not for lower gas prices. Do you think they went through all of this and now they just have to do it? Have you noticed that they are not really talking about it? They are just kind of keeping it, "Shhh, that's between us."

STU: Well, I mean, they're going the funny thing about this is it's just a commercial. You know like when cable news, we do this sometimes, we'll be talking about a commercial and we'll play the commercial in its entirety and essentially it amounts to free advertising. They want these commercials to be played and we're playing them to pick them apart. But that's all this is. This is a four day prime time commercial that they just throw out there and everybody picks it up and just airs it and sometimes without questioning and sometimes by blatantly praising what's happening.

GLENN: Did you watch MSNBC last night?

STU: Hold on. I need to get into your head here. Why would you bring up, right when I say blatantly praising, you brought up MSNBC. That was weird.

GLENN: I have no idea. Play Cut 6 for me, will you? This is Michelle Obama from last night. Here's Cut 6. It's the close.

MICHELLE OBAMA: Barack Obama, President of the United States of America. Thank you. God bless you and God bless America.

GLENN: She's fantastic. She's got a I can't imagine what the reporters might say after something like that. I just can't imagine what they you know what, you say a speech, you know, God bless America and then, you know, what does a reporter do. Couldn't say anything ridiculous. Imagine, this is "Case closed." Stop for a second. Can you imagine, Michelle Obama pitched perfect. Can you imagine somebody going off and just spiraling into, just sickophantic, just nonsense, wonderful, terrific, you know, and just gush about it. I mean, you actually start feeling bad for somebody if they were doing that, wouldn't you? Wouldn't you just feel bad? You'd be like, that guy's not even a journalist.

VOICE: Case, I think, closed.

GLENN: Ooh, whoops.

VOICE: If that speech was to be more about tone than content, pitch perfect. Supposed to be more about content than tone, pitch perfect.

GLENN: Pitch perfect!

VOICE: If that was supposed to be about friendliness and accessibility, couldn't have done it better.

GLENN: Couldn't have done it better.

VOICE: Look at these kids. I think that's part of the story. They have not exploited those kids at all but it's nice to see them all together once

GLENN: Stop, stop! You know, they haven't exploited these kids at all. They really, they really get a tight shot on them, will you here? Remember when they were on Access Hollywood and they were doing this thing at Access Hollywood. They were exploited on Access Hollywood and what happens? "We are not going to exploit our kids." Boy, did we learn our lesson. So the last thing we're going to do is go on Access Hollywood because there's like 500,000 viewers a night on Access Hollywood. Let's put them on okay, all right, we'll put them on national television, you know, but just on a night when every single network is covering it. And then I'll give the microphone to the cute little one. That's what I but not exploit. Do not exploit the children. Come on, Chris Matthews. You know, they really haven't exploited these children except for the time they admitted they exploited the children and then, of course, tone.

VOICE: A daughter, 10 and 7 years old. That was the oldest that she described, her husband driving her home from the hospital

GLENN: Wait, wait, wait. And the story she told about driving the little one there, that's the story she told about, but they are not exploiting the children at all.

VOICE: The terms of this speech.

GLENN: Yes.

VOICE: To try to erase doubts that now seem difficult to voice aloud because they seem almost foolish. What's also been

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. Stop. "The purpose of this speech were to erase doubts, you know, these doubts that are just so ridiculous, they're just so I mean, they're so infantile if you have any doubts." It was one speech. How could you possibly have any doubts? Seem like a fool. Who could possibly express any doubts? I could! In fact, I love working next to Rockefeller Plaza, 30 Rock. I love it. I'm right across the street from NBC. Hey, Keith Olbermann (yelling)! Jeez. Who could possibly I mean, it just seems ridiculous. This is foolish.

VOICE: Subtly.

GLENN: Subtly.

VOICE: There was a reference to they love this country, meaning the troops. There was another one

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop. Subtly. Subtly she said, "I love this country." What does that mean? Subtly she said, "I don't want people to think I really do. I just want to be subtle. I just want to work that in." Subtly she said I love this country? Did you hear what she said about the troops? She talked about Dan, you've got to find the clip on the troops. She nope, nope, nope, I'm starting to give myself away. I'm sorry.

STU: Be a journalist, Glenn.

GLENN: I'm sorry. Lady, just go ahead and finish. Just finish the Keith Olbermann.

VOICE: References to country, but he went back and listened to that speech again and waited for the moment in which she supposedly selling herself and redeeming herself, you wouldn't have noticed it. It was just a speech by there's the video.

GLENN: Just stop, stop. It was just, it was just a speech by a goddess hang on, hang on, here's some

VOICE: And that was and it was not a modeling speech.

GLENN: It wasn't a modeling speech.

VOICE: It was not a salesmanship speech.

GLENN: Not a salesmanship.

VOICE: I know I'm beginning to sound borderline sickophantic of this. So I'll stop, you start.

GLENN: What? Borderline sickophantic? Your whole career is built on that, Keith Olbermann. Oh! I can't take it. I swear to you.

Former senior COVID adviser for the Biden administration Andy Slavitt suggested Americans should have "sacrificed a little bit more" to get through the pandemic during an interview with CBS' "This Morning" earlier this week.

Asked by host Tony Dokoupil how much of the pandemic was preventable, Slavitt responded by first blaming the Trump administration, then all Americans in general for not sacrificing enough.

"We obviously had a set of technical mistakes with the testing and the PPE that we know about. But if we're honest, there were also two other mistakes, that caused a lot of loss of life. One was just plainly political leadership mistakes. We denied the virus for too long under the Trump White House. There was too much squashing under divisions," Slavitt said.

"But I also think we all need to look at one another and ask ourselves, 'What do we need to do better next time?' And in many respects, being able to sacrifice a little bit for one another to get through this and to save more lives is going to be essential. And it's something that I think we could all have done a little bit better on," he continued.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck had more than a few fiery words for Slavitt, who is apparently unaware of the terrible toll this pandemic has had on the mental, physical, and emotional health of millions of Americans.

"We could have sacrificed a little bit more?" he asked. "So, the sacrifice of [nearly] 40% of all businesses now being closed, I mean permanently out of business ... was that sacrifice good enough? Or the fact that teen suicide now is up by 31%? A few more of us should have sacrificed our children, you know, throw them up on the altar of Anthony Fauci? I think we could have done it, right?"

"Go to hell," Glenn added. "Who do you think you are, telling us that we should sacrifice more?"

President Joe Biden and world leaders are spending the week discussing the biggest issues across the globe. But Mike Pompeo, former Secretary of State during the Trump administration, believes more needs to be done.

Pompeo joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to talk about President Biden's upcoming meeting with Russian president Vladimir Putin, and to explain why he believes it's not just "appropriate," but necessary to hold Putin accountable for the recent cyberattacks on the Colonial Pipeline and the JBS meat processing company.

Pompeo said it's likely that "at the very least" Putin turned a blind eye to the major attacks against U.S. infrastructure. He stressed that the Biden administration should not abandon private businesses in the face of these ransomware hacks, but rather do everything possible to make sure those businesses' assets are secure from future invasions.

"This is an attack on America," Pompeo said. "It came through an attack on a commercial enterprise, but the capacity for pipelines to move product around on our east coast is an American national security interest.... We have to help these businesses protect their systems, and then there has to be a national effort to impose costs on those who put American lives at risk by denying available product around our country.

"Putin, at the very least, is turning a blind eye to [the cyberattacks], probably more. So, it's appropriate to hold Vladimir Putin and the Russians accountable for the actions taking place inside of their country," he added. "We have to do it, and there are tools by which we can."

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn read from the Bible's II Timothy 3, in which Paul warns of "perilous times" to come and describes a generation that will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, and the list goes on. Sound familiar?

But Glenn said the times we're facing — which will likely become more and more difficult — are not any graver than what our Founders faced. We can overcome, and while it won't be easy, it will be worth it.

"Just like George Washington and the badge of merit, we will not be able to conquer this evil unless we are on God's side. If we don't have Divine Providence, we will not be able to survive. The things that are arrayed in front of us, are no greater no less than what our Founders had arrayed against them," Glenn stated.

"So, what will we do? You must make those decisions, as a family, right now. What is the line for you that you and your family will not cross? Because if you don't know it now, you will cross it," he warned. "You have to speak out, be that voice. You have to be strong enough to lead."

Glenn went on to thank and praise his audience, saying, "This is the kindest, most generous audience I have ever encountered."

"You will stand. This audience could be the extra 5% that is needed to change things, for the better," he added. "We have great and glorious times, when I believe we will see the hand of God. We will see miracles. Expect them. And live in such a way where you can call them down."

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.
