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.

The FBI recently sent more than a dozen armed agents to the home of well-known pro-life activist Mark Houck to arrest him for allegedly violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances or FACE Act. Now the father of seven faces up to 11 years in prison over claims that he blocked a man from entering an abortion clinic and shoved him when he wouldn't stop verbally harassing Mark's 12-year-old son. Now, if that doesn't sound insane enough, this all happened after local authorities dropped the case. So, what's the full story here?

Attorney Peter Breen joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to tell the family's side of the story, including how the case was already "won" three years ago, and how, after receiving a target letter from the United States Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, Mark's legal team agreed to cooperate fully, only to hear nothing back until the day the FBI showed up on Mark's doorstep.

Breen also explained how the FBI has tried to downplay "abuse of power" claims, accusing Mark's wife of making "inaccurate claims" about the terrifying experience.

"Ryan-Marie, who is Mark's wife, she thought she saw 25 [FBI agents.] The FBI came back and said it wasn't 25, it was no more than 15 or 20 heavily armed federal agents. And she had called them a 'SWAT team' because she's a lay person. I don't know the difference between a SWAT team and a bunch of heavily armed, armored, and shield-bearing federal agents," Breen said.

According to Fox News, a senior FBI source said:

There may have been 15-20 agents at the scene, but denied 25 were there. The agents who came to the door had guns out and at the ready, according to this FBI source, but the guns were never pointed at Houck or his family and were lowered or holstered as soon as Houck was taken into custody. Houck was handcuffed with a belly chain.

"So, yeah, they had guns drawn and pointed at Mark in front of his wife and their children. And that whole show of force was done against a man who was not a drug lord, not a mafia boss, but instead, a law-abiding pillar of the community whose attorney said, 'we'll bring him in if you decide to charge, even though you have no case.'"

Breen went on to assert that he believes Congress "needs to" hold Attorney General Merrick Garland accountable for the arrest. "I can't imagine that those 20 federal agents were excited about being called out to a peaceful man's home, guns drawn," he said.

In the video clip below, Breen goes on the explain what he believes should happen next, and why Houck's arrest "should frighten all of us." Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

Gavin McInnes broke the internet last month when his live show was interrupted, and it appeared that he was arrested. He broke the internet again a few weeks later when he admitted that the arrest was staged as part of what was intended to be an elaborate prank.

McInnes joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to explain the real reason behind his disastrous prank.

"This was a $10,000 joke. I lost 100 subscribers because of it, but I was going away to Paris for a week because my daughter is going to college and I thought let's make it interesting," McInnes said of his decision to fake an on-air arrest in the middle of his live "Get Off My Lawn" podcast on August 25.

"There was a method to the madness, with the prank ... my point was, first of all, this is happening to people in real-time. Tim Poole has been swatted a million times," he explained to Glenn. "The thought police are in full effect. I also wanted to lampoon the media's bloodlust for us suffering."

Glenn played a clip of the now-infamous hoax while McInnes explained what was really going on behind the scenes, including how his very drunk friend "Unrelia-Bill" was supposed to act the part of the arresting officer but ended up being much too intoxicated (at "2 pm") to speak even a few lines, and how smugly gleeful the "far left" was when they thought McInnes had actually been arrested.

Glenn Beck joined Fox News' Tucker Carlson on Thursday night to discuss Visa Inc.'s "horrifying" new plans to flag firearm sales by separately categorizing purchases at gun shops, a move that Glenn aptly described as "the next step in banning guns."

In what's been hailed as a major victory for gun control activists, Visa agreed to adopt the International Organization for Standardization's (ISO) new set of standards by creating a special merchant category code for gun and ammunition sales.

In his appearance on "Tucker Carlson Tonight," Glenn shared a letter written by Robert B. Thomson III, a senior vice president at Visa, showing that the credit card company initially pushed back on the ISO's new rules.

“We believe that asking payment networks to serve as a moral authority by deciding which legal goods can or cannot be purchased sets a dangerous precedent,” Thomson wrote in the letter to pro-gun-control lawmakers, including Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.

Just days later, however, Visa had agreed to comply with the ISO's plan to establish a new merchant category code for gun stores. So why did Visa suddenly flip?

As Glenn explained, it all comes down to pressure from America's largest union-owned bank, the Amalgamated Bank, one of the only unionized banks in the United States and a proud proponent of ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) investing.

"This is the next step in banning guns," Glenn asserted.

"It's horrifying!" Tucker responded after several seconds of stunned silence.

"I'm so grateful you did the reporting on this," he told Glenn. "I'm not sure why it falls to you since we have a couple of very large daily newspapers in this country you'd think would want to report this, yet none of them did. So, Glenn Beck did."


On a recent episode of "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn broke down the details of this latest attack on the Second Amendment and revealed how this is a step toward something even worse than federal gun registration.

Glenn Beck: Here's why Stacey Abrams' fetal heartbeat remarks are hilarious but TERRIFYING

(Left) Image source: video screenshot/ (right) Photo by Marcus Ingram/Getty Images

Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams has a new pro-abortion conspiracy theory: "There is no such thing as a [fetal] heartbeat at six weeks ... it is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have a right to take control of a woman’s body."

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere agreed Abrams' latest "misinformation" is not just ridiculous but could be dangerous if people are actually willing to believe her.

"If you want to defend abortion, go ahead and defend it. Defend what you're actually doing. Stop denying what is reality," Stu said. "If this is such a great defensible policy, then just come out and defend it, but they never can ... you notice how they can't go to the actual thing they say is so important. They keep defending these other things that aren't true."

Glenn said the pro-choice movement was successful for a long time because most people want the decision to be up to the woman and her doctor and that abortion should be safe, legal, and rare. But when leftists began "celebrating" their abortions or calling for "abortion on demand" at any point in the pregnancy, that's when they start to lose support.

"Because they've celebrated abortion and are losing regular people, you can't put that genie back in the bottle. So, what do they have to do now? They have to take the insane step of discrediting medical machines and technology," Glenn said.

"This is after two years, by the way, of them claiming the biggest scandal in the world was people suggesting the voting machines were hacked — after they previously said that voting machines were hacked in elections they [Democrats] lost," Stu pointed out.

"Honestly, gang, think this through because this is where life gets very scary. This is where you go to authoritarian rule and you can kill millions of people because you're truly now discrediting things that everyone knows is true," Glenn warned.

"So, if you disagree ... you can say that is an evil magic box that has made up sounds in it to convince people. If they will buy that, you're at the Salem witch trials. 'If she doesn't float, she wasn't a witch.' That's what you're looking at right now — and what's frightening is, [Abrams] can say this with a straight face and no one discredits her," he continued.

"You don't think that they can convince those people that you are a terrorist because of the way you vote? [...] You don't think they can convince half the country that you should be eliminated, liquidated, put into a camp, whatever authoritarians love to do? ... We are headed towards dangerous, dangerous times. We better wake up and stand together because this is frightening — it's hilarious — but because people are taking it seriously, it is terrifying," Glenn added.
