Glenn Beck: King and Carrie Prejean



Carrie Prejean Threatens to Leave Larry King Live due to Larry Being "Inappropriate"

GLENN: Play this from Larry King Live last night.

KING: You sued the pageant. After they fired you, they countersued and then you accuse them of a number of things including religious discrimination, clearly an issue very important to you. Why did you settle? You don't have to tell me the terms of the settlement but why settle if you had a fight to carry on?

PREJEAN: You know what, Larry? Everything I discussed in mediation, I'll say it again, is completely confidential. I'm not going to be able to talk about that. So I'm just letting you know that ahead of time.

KING: You can't even say why you settled? How does that break what you settled for? I'm not asking you what the settlement was. I'm asking why did you agree to settle?

PREJEAN: It's just a confidential agreement and I am not allowed to talk about that. So

KING: So the agreement discusses the motive behind why each party agreed?

STU: Is anybody listening at this point?

GLENN: No, I agree with him. I agree with him.

PAT: I agree with Larry King on this one. Listen to the question. It's like, I don't understand. You are saying your motivation is part of the agreement? That's impossible.

GLENN: Something is wrong with Carrie Prejean. Something's wrong here.

PAT: It's just bizarre.

STU: Wait a minute. The question he just asked was, in this agreement was when you start in this agreement, she just said she can't talk about the agreement.

PAT: He is not talking about the agreement. He's talking about the motivation behind making the agreement.

STU: I understand that.

PAT: Right?

STU: There comes a obviously

PAT: He's alluding to the fact that, look, you just had this sex tape come out and you don't want to be hammered anymore, so you settled.

STU: I'm not saying that I mean, I haven't seen this tape yet. It very well may be

GLENN: There is no tape I mean, there is a tape but there is no tape available. It has never been released.

STU: I wasn't even actually talking about that particular tape.

GLENN: Oh, okay.

STU: Which is another thing. As I sit with a Playboy on my desk, maybe I will view it at some point.

GLENN: It hasn't been released.

STU: I'm talking about the Larry King take. I don't know how it turns out.

PAT: Hang on. Listen.

GLENN: Buckle up. Here you go.

PREJEAN: Larry, you are being inappropriate. You really are.

KING: What? I'm asking a question.

PREJEAN: I'm not going to talk about anything that was discussed in mediation. It was completely confidential and it was a confidential settlement.

KING: All I'm asking all right. In mediation it was discussed why you were mediating.

GLENN: What?

PAT: That's a good question, I think.

PREJEAN: Larry, it's completely confidential and you are being inappropriate, all right? You are being inappropriate.

KING: All right. Inappropriate live continues.

PREJEAN: Yes.

KING: Detroit, hello.

CALLER: Hi, I'm calling from Detroit.

GLENN: Now, while Larry is asking this question, she looks off camera. Now she's in a different city. I think Larry is in Los Angeles. She probably was in New York. And while it looks like they're on the same set, it's they are not.

PAT: They are clearly not.

GLENN: They are usually not.

PAT: They are clearly not.

GLENN: And so Larry is taking this caller, this question. And you see her in the split screen and she looks off to the side.

PAT: She's talking to somebody.

GLENN: She's talking to somebody and she starts to take off her microphone. But in the weirdness of weirdness, she doesn't listen. Now listen.

CALLER: Some great gay friends that helped you possibly win, what would you give them as advice if they wanted to get married?

PAT: You hear it.

KING: Did you hear their question, Carrie?

PAT: She's taking all her stuff now.

KING: Did she hear the question?

PAT: And earpiece.

KING: Is she leaving because I asked what motivated the settlement?

PREJEAN: Excuse me?

GLENN: Now she's not mic'ed.

KING: Did you hear the

PAT: She's not mic'ed.

GLENN: She's not mic'ed.

STU: Someone's talking to her off camera there.

GLENN: Yes, but she's sitting. She's taking her mic off and put it down on the table.

PAT: And she's on camera.

GLENN: And she's on camera and she's not moving.

PAT: She's just standing there. And it's bizarre.

GLENN: And so now there's somebody off the camera says, he's asking you if you're leaving. Go ahead and continue.

KING: Question.

PREJEAN: Now I can't hear you.

PAT: Yeah, you took out your earpiece!

KING: You took the mic off. If you put the mic on, we can hear you.

PREJEAN: I think that you are being extremely inappropriate right now. I'm about to leave your show.

GLENN: Stop. I'm about to leave your show. She's still sitting there. I'm about to leave your show. I think when you took the earpiece out, you get up and leave or what is this?

STU: She didn't win she wasn't was mensa. I don't know that there's anything wrong with her.

GLENN: I'm telling you, look, this whole thing with here's what happened, and this is

PAT: Do you have to be Miss Mensa to understand the concept here in I don't think so.

GLENN: It's like she's sitting there go, I'm invisible, I'm waiting for them to transport me out of the building right now. What the heck is that?

PAT: Beam me out, Scotty! I cannot do it, Terry!

GLENN: Quick, quick, the lava rock is coming my way! Beam me out!

All right, so here's the thing.

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: I've never had a bad thing to say about Carrie Prejean. I haven't really even talked about her.

PAT: I defended her like crazy.

GLENN: Yeah, okay.

PAT: At the beginning.

GLENN: All right. And I have no problem.

PAT: This is weird. This is weird.

GLENN: But here's where I've turned. Look. We have all well, not all of us. I have. Now, let me speak for me. I've done stupid things in my life, stupid.

PAT: I think we all have.

GLENN: I have done embarrassing things in my life. I've done wrong things in my life. I've wronged people. I've been a dirt bag in my life, okay? And things that are in the past are in the past. Have you learned from them? Well, if I'm not mistaken, when those pictures came out, first I believe the story was that she was, a picture that was taken while she was getting undressed or something like that, right? That was inappropriate?

PAT: The initial ones? Yeah, in the lingerie or whatever?

GLENN: Not the lingerie.

PAT: Of the side shot?

GLENN: Yeah. And it was taken by a photographer and it was inappropriate, and I believe that because I've experienced photographers. So okay? I believe that. Then it was, well, lingerie, that's not a sex pose.

PAT: Right.

GLENN: And I'm

PAT: I'm a model.

GLENN: I'm a model and I'm a good Christian and blah, blah blah, and I believe that. Now there's this audio where she was suing the pageant and she was suing them for a million dollars if I'm not mistaken.

PAT: Something like that, yeah.

GLENN: And they say you don't want to go here because we have inappropriate video of you. Now, this isn't public video, and they were wrong to use this, and I can I'll bet you that in the middle of the lawsuit somebody said "Get her on this" and so they held this at bay and tried to scare her off from it. But she apparently made a video, if she were a movie, it would be Cool Hand Luke.

STU: My mind is racing right now.

PAT: So it's a gun slinger movie?

GLENN: Edward Scissorhands?

PAT: She's trimming

GLENN: She's by

STU: She is her own co star?

GLENN: Yes.

PAT: And then she said that to her boyfriend.

GLENN: She would be an incredible soloist.

PAT: Initially now she said that wasn't me, that was somebody else and she was horrified by it.

GLENN: And she was horrified by it, how dare you even say that, that's not me. And apparently a lot of the video is shot with

PAT: An angle that you can't see.

GLENN: That you are not witnessing the face, uh huh. And her mom is there with her.

PAT: At the negotiations with the pageant.

GLENN: No, no. It's a solo act, yes.

STU: Thank you.

GLENN: And her mom and she becomes indignant: That is absolutely not me. And then the camera pans up, and it's her. And she said, well, this was a private act with my boyfriend; I was alone; it's none of your

PAT: Nothing's private anymore, was her response to that.

GLENN: No, nothing is private anymore apparently.

STU: Well, you put it on a video camera.

GLENN: Yes.

PAT: And sent it to your boyfriend who you really liked at the time.

GLENN: You really liked at the time. You are pleasuring yourself on videotape. I'm sorry.

PAT: It's a sexting thing, it was five years ago or something?

GLENN: So she's pleasuring herself, she's sexting herself on videotape. She denies that it is her. I'm sorry. If you did something five years ago, own up to it: That was me; you know what, that was me; I've made a lot of mistakes in my life, I've learned from them. But you cannot claim, at least for me you can't claim that I'm just this innocent little wholesome girl. You may be today but not without redemption and atonement and admitting to the problems.

STU: Right. And to be clear, none of these things, the people who don't like her, none of these things they would complain about if it was someone on their side.

PAT: That's very true.

STU: But it is an issue of hypocrisy if you are sitting here claiming purity and then doing that.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: I have to tell you something

PAT: Look, if you will sext that, if you will text message something like that to your boyfriend, there's a really good chance am I going way out on a limb to say that there's probably something else that you've been doing? I mean, if you are willing to go that far?

STU: No, it's not a limb at all.

GLENN: How do I

PAT: And then she talks about the values and premarital sex and all of those things. There's credibility here at stake and it's really too bad. It's really too bad.

STU: I don't know why we're reaching for credibility from a beauty contestant.

PAT: Because she put herself out as that.

GLENN: She put herself out and asked people to believe. And look, I am the last person to come to you and say, hey, you've got to be perfect. You don't. Perfect people do not exist. They don't exist.

STU: Of course not.

GLENN: Everybody makes mistakes. Everybody is going to we are all going to make a mistake today. Hopefully it's not a sexting mistake. But we're all going to make mistakes today. The question is do we learn from them? Do we own up to them? Especially when we're in litigation where we are accusing people of, you are besmirching my good name; pay me a million dollars and they say don't go here because we have this. And while you're standing there, you made the tape. You know when you panned the camera to your hand and when you panned the camera to your face. What, do you think they only had half of the video?

STU: Again not Ms. Mensa but is this all this confirmed or is this the rumors in the press about this tape?

GLENN: It is confirmed.

STU: She admits all these details?

GLENN: Yes.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: She was on Hannity I think when she when I was in the hospital. Another organ about jumped out of me.

PAT: Unveiled the truth, yeah.

GLENN: And I listened to her.

STU: And she said I was lying about it and all of a sudden they panned to my face?

GLENN: No, no. She just said

PAT: No, you've got to put the two things together. She did lie at first about it and then she told the truth about it. So

STU: But I think as far as this interview goes, I mean, I would think her defense would be they probably had some sort of agreement with people before the interview to say don't ask me about the details, they're private.

GLENN: Here's the problem. In her defense

PAT: Make the case.

GLENN: In her defense I just had a conversation with somebody yesterday and we'll talk about it in coming days.

STU: Hmmm.

GLENN: But I had a conversation with somebody yesterday and they said, well, you know, you don't, you know, you don't want to answer these questions or you don't want to I have no problem. I will talk to anyone about anything, as long as we're having an honest conversation where we're really looking for the truth about things and we're having a dialogue. Not gotcha. So in her defense, she's under attack all the time. Do you think that call from Detroit, it could be that that was an honest question. It also could have been some setup question.

STU: Right, I'm sure it was.

PAT: Almost certain.

GLENN: Everything is a setup now to get em.

STU: Right. We live in that culture. It's just, what's on YouTube today.

GLENN: Correct. So I don't have a problem with her I'm sure that they had some agreement. My problem on that came from, get up and leave if you're going to get up and leave. Again you're

STU: Yeah, what's their motivation there? It's just dumb. It's just a stupid blonde moment, isn't it? I mean, it's just a girl who's not particularly brilliant, not realizing what she should or should not do and under a lot of pressure. There's no secret agenda here. She's just butchering a bad situation.

GLENN: You can't here's the lesson from Carrie Prejean. It's going to come out. Whatever you've done, it's going to come out.

STU: Be honest with yourself.

GLENN: Right. Be honest with yourself. It's the only way that you can survive life and then be honest with others. You don't have to get into the gory details. But don't try to hide it. Look, gang, if you read about it, there's a shot that I did it. Yeah. I mean, if it was against the law other than drugs, most likely no. But there's a shot. I mean, I saw this thing and I'm like, gee, I don't think I made any sex take place, did I?

STU: Yeah, yeah.

GLENN: You know, but you've got to be you have to be honest with yourself.

STU: Right. You are saying be honest with yourself especially if you are doing other things with yourself.

PAT: Like being dishonest?

STU: I don't know. At least other things. That's why I kept it open.

GLENN: At least take yourself out for drinks.

Black Lives Matter protesters sent a shocking, threatening letter to businesses and non-profits in Louisville, Kentucky. The letter made a series of demands related to racial reparations, and threatened consequences if the demands weren't met, the Daily Wire reported.

On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck detailed the letter's list of demands and threats, and pointed out that these tactics are strikingly similar to those we've seen during some of history's darkest chapters.

The letter, which was sent to businesses in the East Market District in downtown Louisville, listed demands such as ensuring that at least 23% of staff are black, providing race and inclusion training for all employees, displaying a written statement professing support for the BLM movement, buying at least 23% of inventory from black retailers, and submitting to external audit.

"Repercussions for non-compliance" to these demands will result in sit-ins and protests being staged outside the business, social media smear campaigns, boycotts, negative media attention, and "invasive reclamation," the letter threatened.

"So, I'm making quite a charge here, but I think it absolutely fits," Glenn said on the show. "Carl Kaufman, the representation that was used by Hitler and his machine, he convinced the youth that they were the answer, they would finally take control, and they would bring equality. [Kaufman said] the Jews controlled everything, and because of the Jews, the Germans really didn't have any freedom. Because of the Jews, they couldn't do anything. They were held down by the Jews. He said, 'We're going to have to boycott those stores. And if those stores don't comply, we will keep our storm troopers outside of the doors.' And they did. They intimidated anyone who walked into those stores. They berated anyone who walked into those stores. They beat anyone who walked into those stores."

"I told you once, that if America goes dark, we'll become the darkest nation ever in the history of the world," Glenn continued. "Guys, we're allowing our nation to go dark. And we're doing it because of fear. Everybody knows this is wrong, but who is going to stand up against it?"

Shortly after appearing on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" last Thursday, Los Angeles-based emergency medicine specialist Dr. Simone Gold got a call saying she was fired for speaking out about the efficacy of hydroxychloroquine in a now-banned viral video.

Dr. Gold returned to the radio program Monday to detail exactly what happened, the reason the hospitals gave for her firing, and how they threatened to fire her colleagues as well if she "didn't go quietly."

"Most emergency physicians work at more than one [hospital], as I do, and I've actually been fired from both," she told Glenn. "They told me that I appeared in an embarrassing video, and therefore, I would no longer be welcome to work there ... then they said, if I didn't go quietly and I made a fuss, they would have all the doctors in the group, you know, they'd have to go and they'll get a whole new doctor group."

Dr. Gold said she does not regret speaking out about hydroxychloroquine during the controversial "White Coat Summit" news conference held in Washington, D.C., last week. A video of the news conference quickly went viral on social media before being removed by Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and others for allegedly making false claims related to COVID-19.

"Bring it on," she said. "I want to continue to live in America. I want my children to continue to live in America. I don't want them to grow up in a place like China. When you get to a point where, not only can I not speak as a scientist, as a doctor, for what I know to be absolutely true, but you then want to cancel me and my colleagues, this is not okay. I would much rather fight than not fight ... and I want everybody to know that there are literally millions and millions of Americans who are on our side. Millions. I believe it's the majority."

Glenn then asked Dr. Gold to weigh in on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's new guidelines encouraging schools to reopen in the fall and the left's relentless drive to keep them closed.

"There's no actual scientific debate whatsoever if schools should open. None. There's no scientific debate. There's no serious person who thinks schools shouldn't open. Now, [through] some governors and policy makers, there's pressure being brought to bear on school districts, but there's no actual scientific debate. So it's going to come down to parents pressuring their local school districts to act in a responsible fashion."

Fox News host Greg Gutfeld joined Glenn on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to talk about his new book, "The Plus: Self-Help for People Who Hate Self-Help."

Greg admits he is probably the last person who should write a self-help book. Nevertheless, he offers his offbeat advice on how to save America during what has become one of the most tumultuous times in history, as well as drinking while tweeting (spoiler: don't do it).

He also shares his "evolution" on President Donald Trump, his prediction for the election, and what it means to be an agnostic-atheist.

In this clip, Greg shares what he calls his "first great epiphany" on how dangerous cancel culture has become.

"I believe that cancel culture is the first successful work-around of the First Amendment," he said. "Because freedom of speech doesn't protect me from my career being ruined, my livelihood being destroyed, or me getting so depressed I commit suicide. Cancel culture is the first successful work-around of freedom of speech. It can oppress your speech with the scepter of destruction. We don't have freedom of speech anymore."

Dr. Simone Gold joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to set the record straight about hydroxychloroquine -- what it is, how it works, and the real reason for all the current controversy surrounding a centuries-old medication.

Dr. Gold is a board certified emergency physician. She graduated from Chicago Medical School before attending Stanford University Law School. She completed her residency in emergency medicine at Stony Brook University Hospital in New York, and worked in Washington D.C. for the Surgeon General, as well for the chairman of the Committee on Labor and Human Resources. She works as an emergency physician on the front lines, whether or not there is a pandemic, and her clinical work serves all Americans from urban inner city to suburban and the Native American population. Her legal practice focuses on policy issues relating to law and medicine.

She is also the founder of America's frontline doctors, a group of doctors who have been under attack this week for speaking out about hydroxychloroquine during a news conference held outside the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington D.C.

On the program, Dr. Gold emphasized that the controversy over hydroxychloroquine is a "complete myth."

"Hydroxychloroquine is an analogue or a derivative of quinine, which is found in tree bark. It's the most noncontroversial of medications that there is," she explained.

"It's been around for centuries and it's been FDA-approved in the modern version, called hydroxychloroquine, for 65 years. In all of that time, [doctors] used it for breast-feeding women, pregnant women, elderly, children, and immune compromised. The typical use is for years or even decades because we give it mostly to RA, rheumatoid arthritis patients and lupus patients who need to be on it, essentially, all of their life. So, we have extensive experience with it ... it's one of the most commonly used medications throughout the world."

Dr. Gold told Glenn she was surprised when the media suddenly "vomited all over hydroxychloroquine", but initially chalked it up to the left's predictable hatred for anything President Donald Trump endorses. However, when the media gave the drug Remdesivir glowing reviews, despite disappointing clinical trial results, she decided to do some research.

"[Remdesivir] certainly wasn't a fabulous drug, but the media coverage was all about how fabulous it was. At that moment, I thought that was really weird. Because it's one thing to hate hydroxychloroquine because the president [endorsed] it. But it's another thing to give a free pass to another medicine that doesn't seem that great. I thought that was really weird, so I started looking into it. And let me tell you, what I discovered was absolutely shocking," she said.
