GLENN: Let's move on with this. So here we go.

VOICE: Good luck with Rio. Now, last year I was elected with a mandate to bring this country "Change we could believe in" and as time has passed, it has become clear that this promise is troubling to some people. There are those on the right who are angry. They think that I'm turning this great country into something that resembles the Soviet Union or Nazi Germany. But that's just not the case. Because when you look at my record, it's very clear what I've done so far and that is... nothing. (Laughter). Nada. Almost one year and nothing to show for it. You don't believe me? You think I'm making it up? Take a look at this checklist.

Now, on my first day in office... (laughter), in my first day in office I said I've closed Guantanamo Bay. Is it closed yet? No. (Laughter). I said we'd be out of Iraq. Are we? Not the last time I checked. (Laughter). I said I'd make improvements in the war in Afghanistan. Is it better? No, I think it's actually worse. (Laughter). How about health care reform? Hell no. (Laughter). I even, I even went personally to try to bring the Olympics to Chicago in 2016. It didn't work out. But in this case there's some good news with the bad. For every person who buys an American car in the next six months, you're going to get... one of these. (Laughter)

GLENN: What is it?

STU: It's a T‑shirt.

PAT: It's a 2016, Chicago 2016 T‑shirt.

(Applause).

VOICE: Now, I just don't see why the right is so riled up. I mean, how do you think the left feels? They are the ones that should be mad. Now, I'm sure they thought I would have addressed at least one of the following things by now: Global warming. No. Immigration reform? No. Gays in the military? Nuh‑uh. Limits on executive powers? No. Torture prosecutions? No. So looking at this list I'm seeing two big accomplishments: Jack and squat. (Laughter). And remember, I can do whatever I want. I have a majority in both houses of congress. I could make it mandatory for all gays to marry and require all cars to run on marijuana, but do I? No. (Laughter). But it's not all bad news. I have a few accomplishments. The Cash For Clunkers program really stimulated the economy. Unfortunately it was the economy of Japan. (Laughter). Let's see what else. Also I killed a fly on TV. Remember that? (Laughter). I brought a white police officer and a black professor together for a beer. Who else could do that? (Laughter). You're right. Oprah. No one else. (Laughter). So please stop saying this country is on the road to socialism. If that were actually the case, I'd be making some real changes. Instead it took me four months to pick out a dog. So all of you frothing Glenn Beck supporters, put away those tricorner hats and those PhotoShop pictures of me as the Joker because if I see any more of this hateful rhetoric, I'm going to have to take drastic action... no, not really. (Laughter).

PAT: So that's essentially it.

STU: That's a pretty funny ‑‑ it's a pretty funny bit.

PAT: Mildly amusing.

GLENN: It's groundbreaking. Mildly amusing? It is groundbreaking. I have not seen anyone in the mainstream media take on anyone, no one. This is the first comedic punt.

PAT: Yeah. It's interesting how they took him on, though. They took him on if that he hasn't done enough of his leftist agenda.

GLENN: Right.

PAT: I mean you are not socialist enough.

GLENN: That's how they take him on. You did take over the car companies, yeah.

STU: But that's okay. At least it's something.

GLENN: No, no, no.

STU: You've got to give him credit for that.

GLENN: Yeah, yeah.

STU: Like we criticized George Bush generally because he wasn't being conservative enough. That doesn't mean it wasn't criticism.

GLENN: When Barack Obama can't get the Olympics done, I mean, this is a debacle. Valerie Jarrett said, "Our intel said we were really close, we were number two. There was only ‑‑ it was down to two of us." They were last place. They were in last place. Their intelligence was wrong on the Olympic committee. Can you imagine how good our intelligence is on Iran?

PAT: It's a little scary.

GLENN: I mean, it's unbelievable. And by the way, it took 48 minutes before they started blaming it on George Bush.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: It took an hour and 42 minutes before they started blaming the loss on me.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: It's amazing.

PAT: By the way, this isn't about the number of Olympics lost. It's about the number of Olympics saved or created. They are still on track. They are still on track.

GLENN: That is fantastic.

PAT: So let's give them a break.

GLENN: Okay, thank you, Pat, I appreciate that.

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:
