Glenn Beck: Gibbs gives worst answer ever

GLENN: Front page of the paper today, plan to save automaker has risks for the economy. One in five think that this was a good idea, one in five, and yet where is the outcry? Can you imagine George W. Bush or anybody else, anybody else doing things this unpopular? I don't even think Bill Clinton would have gotten away with this. Doing things this out of step with the American people. But the media is afraid of him. They're either in the bag or they're afraid. Jake Tapper is one of the only people that is not afraid of the president. Was it Jake Tapper that was asking the question? Dan, do we have the audio of the press conference yesterday?

DAN: Yeah, but it's not Jake Tapper. It's somebody -- I actually was looking to see who it was. They said Jonathan, I think, or John. So I'm not sure who it was, but I'll find out.

GLENN: Find out for me, will you? We have the audio. I want to play the audio here. And I want you to understand: I don't have a problem with the president going out on a date. The president needs to go out on a date with his wife. You want to keep your -- I mean, my wife and I have a date night. We go out on a date. It's important. However, I want to point out the hypocrisy, but first let's hear how the White House so expertly handled this question of, how did the president pay for this? How much did this cost the American taxpayers to leave Washington D.C. and go on a date with your wife up to New York City? Here's the question and the beautiful answer.

VOICE: Are you going to tell us how much the president and the first lady's date night cost on Saturday night? And if not, why not?

VOICE: Well, Jonathan, I think as -- let me -- I thought it was the air conditioner now and it's the helicopter. You know, I think spokespeople have spoken to this over the weekend that the president would -- or could he, based on the secret service, he would have taken the shuttle, but I would say that the costs were proportionate with travel for presidents and I would encourage you to look up previous coverage on travel costs because they are analogous.

VOICE: Is there any precedent for a president and first lady to take an out-of-town date night like this not connected to an official or even a political previously planned event?

VOICE: You've got probably more researchers than I do.

GLENN: Well, and the spokespeople talked about the spokes statements, spokespeople. Is that the air conditioner?

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: What the -- this guy's the worst. All right. So President Obama, you know, makes good on one campaign promise and that is he promised his wife he would take her out on a date, he would take her to a Broadway show in New York. By the way, the playwright of this show, I don't know if anybody in the media has mentioned this, the playwright of this show had a "white directors need not apply" policy. Anybody mention that? The president wants everybody to understand that he traveled in a smaller plane. He didn't take a Boeing 747 to take his wife out onto a date. He just took the smaller Gulfstream, and two other planes carried staff and reporters. Well, if you are flying three Gulfstreams, is it really saving that much money? The trip cost the taxpayer at least $24,000. There's no way you fire up a Gulfstream for $24,000. There's no way. I mean, how much -- Stu, can you find out for me? How much would a Gulfstream cost from New York to Washington D.C.?

Now, President Obama, a multimillionaire now, was gracious enough to save the taxpayer from paying for dinner and the theater tickets. The tickets were $96.50. Now, I really don't care. Does it -- I wouldn't care about fronting the cost for the president to travel somewhere. He's the president. I don't care that the president went out on a date with his wife. He needs to do it. It's important. But when you're the president, not a president, when you're the president that heard the news that Citigroup had bought a $50 million corporate jet and called the executives to "Fix it," I got a problem. When you are the president, not a president but the president who jumped in line to bash the Big Three automakers for flying in jets to Washington D.C. for bailout hearings because it was a slap in the face to taxpayers, because their budgets were out of control...

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: And they shouldn't have been wasting money on corporate jets, when you're that president, I've got a problem with it. Because in case you haven't noticed, Mr. President, your budgets are out of control! Maybe it's just me. Everything you do, Mr. President, just as the CEOs that took the bailouts, is on the taxpayer dime. You didn't take a bailout. You're giving the bailouts. You're not somebody who has taken some taxpayer money. You're taking all taxpayer money. Why is it nobody will recognize the hypocrisy in Washington? How much longer will the media silence last? How much longer can this country last if the media remains silent? The self-appointed fourth branch of government.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
