Biden's gaffe count increases




Joe Biden speaking to AARP. In order to save the country from bankruptcy we have to spend more money.

GLENN: Do we have the audio of Joe Biden yesterday talking about healthcare. Listen to this.

BIDEN: And folks look, AARP knows and the people with me here today know, the president knows, and I know, that the status quo is simply not acceptable. It’s totally unacceptable. And it’s completely unsustainable. Even if we wanted to keep it the way we have it now. It can’t do it financially. We’re going to go bankrupt as a nation. Now, people when I say that look at me and say, What are you talking about, Joe? You’re telling me we have to go spend money to keep from going bankrupt? The answer is yes, that's what I’m telling you.

GLENN: There it is. Okay, so what are you talking about, Joe? People say to me all the time, what are you talking about, Joe? Oh, I bet they do. Are you saying we're going to go bankrupt? Yes. Then you are telling us we need to go spend more money to keep us from going bankrupt? Yes. I would like to talk to a single person that that makes sense to. Help me out with the logic. You can get me to this logic: Glenn, is debt bad? No. Well, debt is bad; we've got out of control debt. No, no, no. You said out of control debt? Yes, that's bad. Debt is not bad, if it's not out of control. Everybody has a reasonable amount of debt. Unfortunately most people have an unreasonable amount of debt. The federal government has an unsustainable, incomprehensible amount of debt. There's a difference. Is debt bad? No. You own your house? Well, no, I took a loan out for it. Okay, debt's not bad. If you took a loan out for your house that there's no way you could ever pay those payments, then debt is bad. This, what you have to realize is our country has done everything to throttle down. We have put you know what it is? We're a race car driver and we have now put a governor on our car so we can only go 65 miles an hour. But we're in the Indianapolis 500 and we are the race car driver that has won every Indy race for the last 25 years. We are the best race car driver ever, ever in the history of race cars and we're at the Indianapolis 500 and we say, "If we're going to put... you know what, this race is just too dangerous. We're all gonna die. " Well, what should we do? "Well, we should all put a governor on ourselves." What? "We should never go more than 65 miles an hour." Yeah, right, right. Well, if I do it because I'm the most experienced, I'm the one that everybody looks to, if I put a governor on my car and race 65 miles an hour, then everybody else will. No, they won't. Because there's a lot of race car drivers that want to win the race. So you can go do whatever you want, but until the whole, the race car league of America, including Speed Racer and Racer X decide to put the governor on their car, you're gonna lose every time. Well, that's what we're doing. We're doing it with healthcare, we're doing it with regulation, we're doing it by buying up our businesses. Is there anyone within the sound of my voice that believes that General Motors is going to make a better car because they are now run by the unions and the government, is there anyone, is there anyone in the government and the unions that think that they will make a better car because they now control it? No. It's unsustainable. It's ridiculous. It makes absolutely no sense and everybody knows it.

Protests following the fatal police shooting of Walter Wallace Jr quickly devolved into violence, rioting, and looting in Philadelphia, and BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer was there to document what the mainstream media won't. But while filming the carnage inside a Five Below on Tuesday, Elijah was surrounded and attacked by looters.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to detail his experience and to explain why mainstream media efforts to downplay the violence just show that independent media has never been more important.

"Unfortunately, [the attack] escalated from one person to about a dozen very quickly," Elijah explained. "I'm actually really happy to be alive. Because in that same shopping center, right there, there was a 15-year-old girl who was shot, according to reports. And I heard multiple gunshots throughout the night. Another individual is reported to have heard a gunshot as well, so we try to confirm. I watched people get pummeled beyond belief."

Glenn asked Elijah to respond to mainstream media claims that conservatives are exaggerating the looting and violence in Philadelphia.

"It's so funny to hear people that aren't there try to counter what we're reporting," Elijah replied.

In the final days before the 2020 election, President Donald Trump is gaining among black voters, particularly men, because his record of accomplishments "speaks for itself" and the "façade" that President Trump is a racist "just doesn't ring true," argued sports columnist Jason Whitlock on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday.

Jason, who recently interviewed the president at the White House for OutKick.com, shared his thoughts on why he believes many black Americans — notably celebrities such as Kanye West, Ice Cube, and 50 Cent — are breaking from the "façade" that President Trump is a "flaming racist."

"I really believe the facts are starting to speak for themselves, and that Donald Trump's record of accomplishments, particularly as it relates to African Americans, speaks for itself," Jason told Glenn. "He actually has a record to stand on, unlike even Barack Obama. When [Obama] was president, I don't think he had much of a record to stand on, in terms of, 'Hey, what did he actually deliver for African Americans?' President Trump has things he can stand on and, you know, beyond that I think black people understand when he starts talking about black unemployment rate. And America's unemployment rate. And then, when you add in for black men, the façade we've been putting on [President Trump] … you know, this whole thing that he's some flaming racist, it just doesn't ring true."

Jason suggested that Trump's fearlessness, unabashed masculinity, and record of keeping his promises resonates with men in the black community. He also weighed in on how media and social media's bias plays a huge role in convincing people to hate President Trump while ignoring Antifa and others on the Left.

"I keep explaining to people, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, they're some of the most secular places on earth. And we've reduced everyone to a tweet, that we disagree with," he added.

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:
