Glenn Beck: Joe Biden, gaffe machine

GLENN: Do we have the audio from the Today Show where Joe Biden we talked about it yesterday. I love this where Joe Biden says, you know what, I've already told my family, freak out, the last thing I'd do is be in a confined space at all, elevators, boxes, container cars. I mean, what is this? "Whatever you do, I wouldn't I've told my family don't get into an airplane." Okay, so here's what he said on the Today Show yesterday.



Excerpt from Joe Biden's appearance on the Today Show, on April 30, 2009

BIDEN: I would tell members of my family, and I have, I wouldn't go anywhere in confined places now. It's not that it's going to Mexico. It's you're in a confined aircraft. When one person sneezes, it goes all the way through the aircraft.

STU: I really do love this guy. You have to keep him out there, please, if nothing else. We're getting all of the money that we should be spending hundreds of years from now is being spent now. With all these things going the wrong way, just give us Joe Biden. Let him out there and talk. Give us the material. Let him fuel our happiness.

GLENN: He really is.

STU: He is fantastic.

GLENN: He is the poster child for alcoholism.

STU: He is the poster child for Scotch tape over the mouth.

GLENN: That's got to be alcohol induced, don't you think? Maybe he's high, Flexeril, I don't know what he's I mean, nobody in their right mind actually comes out and says these things, do they?

STU: He's one of these like they kept touting like, wow, Joe Biden hasn't made a gaffe in 100 days. He's been invisible for 100 days. They've been keeping him in an airtight container somewhere.

GLENN: He's down, he got a tour of the Dick Cheney bunker and all of a sudden the big safe door...

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: And he's on the other side going, "Hey, guys... come on, guys, this isn't funny anymore (echoing)." They said, "Don't worry, Joe Biden's not going to be a problem."

STU: He told people to stay away from people with the swine flu because he's been in an enclosed box for the past 100 days.

GLENN: That's exactly right, I told my family you don't want to be in any enclosed spaces, any confined spaces, they trapped me in the basement of the White House for like the last month and a half; I just got out. I got another tour of another wing of the White House coming up they're telling me? Yeah, you do.

Okay, so that's what he said. Now listen to Gibbs yesterday who I contend is also an out of control alcoholic because this guy, I mean, come on. It takes at least an alcoholic to spot an alcoholic.

STU: He has the job performance of an alcoholic. I don't know if he is but he certainly performs like one.

DAN: Yeah, listen to the finesse on this.

GLENN: Listen to this.

VOICE: Wonder if you want to clarify, correct or apologize for the remarks that he made.



White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs Responds To Biden's 'Swine Flu' Comments

GIBBS: Well, I think what the vice president meant to say was the same thing that again many members have said in the last few days and that is if you feel sick, if you are exhibiting symptoms, flu like symptoms, coughing, sneezing, runny nose, then you should take precautions, that you should limit your travel, and I think he just, what he said and what he meant to say.

GLENN: Okay. Stop, stop, stop, stop. Can you leave it there, Dan, and go back what he just said, see if it matches it at all? Because this answer is just beyond good. I just want to refresh everybody's memory on what Joe Biden go back to Biden real quick on what he

BIDEN: I would tell members of my family, and I have, I wouldn't go anywhere in confined places now. It's not that it's going to Mexico. It's you're in a confined aircraft. When one person sneezes, it goes all the way through the aircraft.

GLENN: Okay. It had nothing to do with all right, all right, all right. So that's what he said. You just heard Gibbs say, "No, I think he's just saying what everybody is saying." Well, listen.

VOICE: I sympathize with you trying to explain the vice president's comments but that's not even remotely close to what he said. He was asked about

GLENN: Stop, stop. This is Tapper, isn't it? I love this guy. Who is he? He's from ABC, right?

STU: Yeah, he's their head White House correspondent.

GLENN: He's the only guy giving these guys crap.

STU: He's very good. He's very good.

GLENN: Do we know anything about him? I would celebrate if this guy was a liberal but yet a real journalist.

STU: I've seen him take on both sides throughout the campaign. He was very fair throughout the campaign.

GLENN: See if you can get him on the air, will you?

STU: I don't think that's going to help him. I don't think this is going to

GLENN: He probably doesn't want that.

STU: He probably doesn't want that.

GLENN: I would like to know. I want to put see if he will go on the air with me.

STU: Sure, yeah.

GLENN: I'd like to talk to him because I don't know about him politically but at least, I really hope that he's done the same thing. Can you go and look and see if he held Bush's feet to the fire?

STU: Well, he wasn't their lead White House correspondent, I don't think. He just got that job for Obama. But he did a lot of questioning to the candidates, and I do remember him taking apart claims from Palin to McCain to everybody throughout the campaign.

GLENN: I love that.

STU: He was very good. He was one of the only people who you know, remember that one spot that Obama ran about McCain in Spanish and they were trying to tie

GLENN: Yeah, Limbaugh.

STU: Rush. And he called it out as there's been a lot on both sides that were horrible; that's probably the worst one of the entire campaign.

GLENN: I like this. See if you can get a hold of him. I'd like to talk to him. So he basically said, "I appreciate you doing your job here, but that ain't even close." Now listen.

VOICE: About a member of his family

GIBBS: Look, I understand what he said and I'm telling you what he meant to say which was that (laughter) if somebody

GLENN: Stop, stop. We have the press corps laughing at the press secretary, not like laughing with. Laughing at. You've got to be kidding me. This is your excuse? "I'm telling you not what he said, what he..."

DAN: That's a wordsmith right there.

GLENN: What he meant to say. That's not what he meant to say. He meant to say, "I wouldn't get on an airplane right now."

STU: He meant to say we should, right now I'm announcing we're shutting down all air travel. That is what he was saying.

GLENN: What he meant to say was, I'm a little freaked out in elevators. That's what he said.

STU: Why is everyone looking at me!

DAN: We just bailed out Amtrak. They don't need the money. Stay home.

GLENN: I wouldn't get on subways, I wouldn't even eat a Subway. Subway sandwiches, there might be pigs in the back room.

STU: Notice too that I believe in his way of denouncing all business in America, he left out the trains. He mentioned the subways

GLENN: Yeah, he's mentioned subways, confined places, plains but no trains.

STU: Amtraks to Wilmington are fine.

GLENN: Amtrak can I tell you something? Amtrak, Amtrak is practically as safe as being in the basement of the CDC. It's practically a sterile laboratory. So if you want to get onto that public transportation called Amtrak, that's good. A bus? Why don't you just slit your own throat and bleed to death in the gutter.

Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable. Leaders from state and local governments across the U.S. have flattened the curve of some of our most basic constitutional rights, but some Americans are fighting back — and risking jail time or losing their businesses.

On Wednesday night's GBTV special, Glenn Beck argued that we're witnessing the birth of a new civil rights movement — and it's time to build a coalition of common sense to keep America as we know it free.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck sat down with chief researcher Jason Buttrill to go over two bombshell developments that have recently come to light regarding former Vice President Joe Biden's role in the 2016 dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

"Wow! Two huge stories dropped within about 24 hours of each other," Jason began. He went on to explain that a court ruling in Ukraine has just prompted an "actual criminal investigation against Joe Biden in Ukraine."

This stunning development coincided with the release of leaked phone conversations, which took place in late 2015 and early 2016, allegedly among then-Vice President Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Ukraine's former President Petro Poroshenko.

One of the audiotapes seems to confirm allegations of a quid pro quo between Biden and Poroshenko, with the later admitting that he asked Shokin to resign despite having no evidence of him "doing anything wrong" in exchange for a $1 billion loan guarantee.

"Poroshenko said, 'despite the fact that we didn't have any corruption charges on [Shokin], and we don't have any information about him doing something wrong, I asked him to resign,'" Jason explained. "But none of the Western media is pointing this out."

A recently declassified email, written by former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and sent herself on the day of President Donald Trump's inauguration, reveals the players involved in the origins of the Trump-Russia probe and "unmasking" of then-incoming National Security Adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn.

Rice's email details a meeting in the Oval Office on Jan 5, 2017, which included herself, former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, former Vice President Joe Biden, and former President Barack Obama. Acting Director of National Intelligence, Richard Grenell, fully declassified the email recently amid President Trump's repeated references to "Obamagate" and claims that Obama "used his last weeks in office to target incoming officials and sabotage the new administration."

On Glenn Beck's Wednesday night special, Glenn broke down the details of Rice's email and discussed what they reveal about the Obama administration officials involved in the Russia investigation's origins.
