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.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.
