Walters thinks Glenn is fascinating




Barbara Walters' 10 Most Fascinating People

GLENN: So I wonder if there will be any mercy tonight with Barbara Walters.

PAT: I can't wait to say that.

STU: It's going to be cool.

PAT: We all watched on the monitors as you were taping and

GLENN: Yeah, they came, they came and did the first interview with me in our new studio.

PAT: 700 people it took.

GLENN: It was what, 51 or 37 or something? It was a ridiculous number of people.

PAT: A lot.

GLENN: That it took. And it took them two days to set up. And they had scouted like the week before, they had blocked off, you know, the parking here in front of, for an entire block on Sixth Avenue, Avenue of the Americas here in New York. I mean, I swear to you it was like the scene from ET. Do you remember when they come and it's like all of a sudden there's bubbles everywhere and it's like, "Okay, we've got Barbara Walters coming in in just a few minutes. Help me clear the area. " I mean, it was an amazing thing to watch. And then it was about a half hour. I don't know how long they're going to use.

PAT: I think it's a pretty standard six minutes on that, isn't it?

GLENN: Isn't it?

STU: Yeah, usually. This is the ten most fascinating people list.

GLENN: Plus Glenn. Ten most fascinating people, plus Glenn Beck. I don't know how that happened, but I think I'm only fascinating to them because I say what I mean and mean what I say and they're like, "But what do you mean by that?" I tell you what I'm really thinking? "Yes, but what does that mean?" Why the code you're speaking in now? So that is, that's tonight. And I don't we should put up a poll on the website. Do I confuse Barbara, the viewers, or do I cry? What are the odds that I cry? Sarah, what are the odds that I cry? What do you think? What are the Vegas odds?

SARAH: I say they're high, whatever they are.

STU: Yeah, you are not getting even money for that.

GLENN: What do you think the odds are that she plays how I actually started the interview which was, come on, ask me what kind of tree I am. Come on, come on, ask me what kind of tree.

STU: I'm going to go with low on that one.

GLENN: She is like, I'm not going to ask you what kind of tree you are. "Come on, ask me what kind of tree. I'm ready for the tree. I've got an answer for the tree question!" "I'm not going to ask..." "All right, I'm just going to say it anyway. Weeping willow. There it is. What do you think?" And then I chastised her and I said, this isn't even a hard interview. This is like, "You don't really want to work. Who can I I don't even want to work at making somebody cry. Who would cry just because the camera is on and, ow, I got a booboo or whatever?" Hey, I've got a question for you. And then you'll just start crying. Glenn. I said, "This isn't even work for you." I don't think that probably made it, either.

PAT: Probably not.

STU: You are in quite impressive company here, though.

GLENN: Am I?

STU: You've got Kate Gosselin.

GLENN: Kate plus Eight.

PAT: Are the Olsen twins on this year?

GLENN: No. Fascinating.

STU: Singer Adam Lambert.

GLENN: That guy's following me.

STU: Lady Gaga.

GLENN: Don't know who she is.

STU: Sarah Palin.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: You've heard of her.

GLENN: Yes.

STU: Brett Favre.

PAT: Brett Favre is on there.

STU: South Carolina first lady Jenny Sanford.

GLENN: Ooh, I'd actually like to see that one.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Is she going to lower the boom? She did. She didn't chase him out of the house with a golf club, but

STU: No, I don't think that happened.

GLENN: You know, Tiger Woods makes him look good, doesn't he?

STU: Yeah. Yeah, this is a good development for Governor Sanford, definitely. Filmmaker Tyler Perry, Michael Jackson's three children, which I believe they're including as one person, which would be Paris, Prince Michael and prince Michael deux, part deux.

(Pat making impersonations.)

GLENN: He really did call him Blanket. That's the question I want Barbara Walters to ask: Did you think your dad here's credit as being one of the most creative men alive and your nickname was Blanket? I mean

PAT: I don't think you berate a 5 year old with that question.

GLENN: Well, I mean, that's

PAT: What was the matter with your dad?

GLENN: Okay, he's been dead for a while; I'm sure you're over it. What was wrong with him!

STU: And then I guess the number one most fascinating person is a reveal, right?

PAT: Yeah, it's a reveal.

STU: It ain't Glenn. We know that.

GLENN: It's got to be.

PAT: Who do you think it is? Is it Palin? Do you think it's Sarah Palin?

STU: No, no. I think it's someone not on this list.

PAT: Oh, it is?

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Barack Obama.

EDWARDS: Why?

GLENN: I don't know.

STU: I've heard some speculation.

GLENN: What is the speculation?

STU: Taylor Swift.

PAT: Taylor Swift?

STU: That is what I've heard.

GLENN: What?

PAT: The most fascinating person of the year?

GLENN: How did I get on this show?

STU: I don't know.

GLENN: They really, they got down to like number 18 most fascinating person and they are like, everybody's out of town, I mean, everybody is out of town. Who's in town? (Phone ringing). Oh, it's Glenn's house. Oh, jeez.

STU: Because the interesting thing, you do stand out here because people seem to know and like everyone else on the list. And then there's you. I mean, if you look at it, Sarah Palin, I guess, everyone hates evil Sarah Palin.

GLENN: She mention she did mention that I was, what, inciting violence like four times.

PAT: Crazy.

GLENN: And she said that I was crazy.

PAT: People say you're crazy.

GLENN: People say you're crazy about five or six times.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: So we know that the inciting of violence and the crazy thing is going to be in the episode.

STU: It's possible that that was why it was asked.

GLENN: The question is, will they air my answers to some of those?

STU: Well, you figure if you were asked four or five times, they had the opportunity to air any of four or five answers.

GLENN: Answers, yeah.

STU: Which one? Will they choose your best answer?

GLENN: It was a really good interview, wasn't it, though? Wasn't it a good interview?

STU: I did not see it. This is all new to me.

PAT: It seemed to be, yeah.

GLENN: Yeah, I thought it was a really good interview.

PAT: It's on at, what, 9:00 Eastern?

STU: 10:00 p.m. Eastern.

PAT: Wow, that's

GLENN: Okay. Now there's another major TV announcement.

PAT: Have you seen it?

STU: He has not busted this one out and it's not a good start.

GLENN: Very bad.

[ OVERLAPPING SPEAKERS ]

STU: This is not a promising start.

PAT: Just as a clue.

GLENN: When I was on

PAT: But you knew what I was talking about.

GLENN: Would you please? When I was on stage in Mount Vernon getting the keys to the city in my hometown, the stage that I hadn't been on since I was about maybe 12, if you've ever seen a picture of me with the magic and the bird, you know, the dove on my finger and stuff, that was taken on that stage that I received the keys to the city. I didn't realize it until I actually got backstage and I was like, oh, my gosh, I haven't been here in forever and this is and I was thinking. My phone rang while I was backstage. That picture was taken because I thought I could actually get on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson and so I had that picture and I was like, hey, you are a magician; I'm a magician, and here's a picture of me looking really dorky. What do you think? Have me on the show. That's why that picture was actually taken.

STU: Really?

GLENN: And when I was backstage, the phone rang and it was somebody here in New York and they said, Jay Leno just called and wants you, wants you to be on the Jay Leno show. And in my own head that's still kind of The Tonight Show even though it's not. And it was kind of a really cool thing. That is happening, what is it, next Friday I fly out to Los Angeles?

STU: December 18th.

GLENN: December 18th. And I am Jay and I are going to be cooking my grandmother's sugar cookies.

STU: That's big.

GLENN: Yeah. Cooking my grandmother's sugar cookies.

STU: I'm sure he won't come up with any fat jokes. I'm sure he won't have any prepared.

GLENN: Well, the problem with these...

STU: For you looking like that.

GLENN: is they go right to your chin. As apparent to my chin and his. So neither of us should be eating those.

STU: How would Jay Leno say that, Pat?

GLENN: Jay Leno next Friday, Barbara Walters tonight.

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.

According to the mainstream media's COVID-19 narrative, the president is "ignoring" the crisis.

On tonight's "Glenn TV" special, Glenn Beck exposes the media's last four months of political theater that has helped shape America's confusion and fear over coronavirus. And now, with a new school year looming on the horizon, the ongoing hysteria has enormous ramifications for our children, but the media is working overtime to paint the Trump administration as anti-science Neanderthals who want to send children and teachers off to die by reopening schools.

Glenn fights back with the facts and interviews the medical doctor Big Tech fears the most. Dr. Simone Gold, founder of America's Frontline Doctors, stands up to the media's smear campaign and explains why she could no longer stay silent in her fight against coronavirus fear.
