Glenn Beck: Tiger finally speaks

GLENN: There is the, probably the best mea culpa I have ever heard. Everything sounded real to me except for the last line. And, you know, maybe the last line was, but everything sounded he believed it. It was I mean, Tiger, you know, I know you don't need it from me or anybody else, but good job. Good job. Fresh start. I mean, I just, I think that's amazing, just amazing. I mean, I just wrote a couple of things, notes down as we went into it, and he walked out and he had tears in his eyes, or it looked like he had tears in his eyes. He looked afraid, and he seemed sincere.

PAT: Seemed ashamed, which is great.

GLENN: He seemed ashamed.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: His mother couldn't even look at him.

PAT: Uh uh.

GLENN: And, you know, she's Asian, and the you don't you know, Asians generally don't air dirty laundry in front of everyone, and this is shameful. But she hugged him at the end, and I just thought she was I thought it was very dignified. He then talked about how Elin had not hit him. I don't know if that's true or not. I mean, I know my wife would have hit me with a golf club. But, you know, if she didn't, that's fine. If she did, I understand. He may be just doing the valiant thing and covering for her. But it doesn't matter. He's right. It is between the two of them. I thought when he spoke about feeling entitled, I'm going to share some of this on the TV show tonight and something else that we're talking about. I mean, that is the problem with America. This is the mea culpa America needs to make: I'm ashamed of our actions and we've done things and we've lived beyond our means and we thought we were entitled to it. He's right. He said he wants to start a life of integrity now, and the only way he can get people to trust him is if he never does it again. He's right. People look, people want people to be happy. No matter what anybody says: Oh, the press, they build you up and they tear you down. No, they don't. People don't. They don't want to tear Tiger Woods down. They want to like him. We want to like people. We just, you know, if they screw up, we just want them to say that. And quite honestly if anybody is going after his children or his family or really asking him any more questions, we've heard enough. What else do you need to know? What else do you need to know? I don't need any more details, I don't need anything. Let it be. If he screws up again, well, it will be a different story. But God bless you. Tiger, get well. Best of luck.

(OUT 11:20)

GLENN: 888 727 BECK, 888 727 BECK. So what did you think of the Tiger Woods, Pat?

PAT: Thought it was great. I thought like you, I thought it was the best mea culpa I've ever seen. I thought he was sincere, sure seemed it. If he didn't write that speech

GLENN: Let's go through the mea culpas that we can think of. Bill Clinton. I was willing to accept the first one on 60 Minutes. Do you remember that?

PAT: I did not sleep with that woman.

GLENN: No, no.

PAT: Ms. Lewinsky? Not that one?

GLENN: No, the first one where they were on 60 Minutes.

PAT: I like fat chicks, I can't help it.

GLENN: Stop it. The first one where they were on 60 Minutes and she said, you know, we've all he said we've all made mistakes and I think we know what we're talking about here and it's between us. I thought that was, I thought that was a good, gracious way of handling their past when he first ran back in, you know, '91, '92. And I

PAT: Yeah, that was the Gennifer Flowers stuff.

GLENN: Yeah, and I thought it was really well handled and I was willing to accept it... until he was doing it again.

PAT: Right.

GLENN: Let's see. Who else has apologized for something?

STU: I remember the one

PAT: Everybody. How about Republican what's his face, Craig from Idaho? I mean, please.

GLENN: I mean, you know, I don't care about apologies for

PAT: My wide stance... okay.

GLENN: Felt totally false to me.

PAT: It did. And maybe it wasn't but it felt it.

GLENN: Felt it.

PAT: Felt it.

GLENN: How about... oh, I can't remember his name. There's been so many of them.

PAT: I know.

STU: Yeah, the big interview like this I remember, and maybe not an interview maybe was the Gary Conditt one. Remember how bad that was? Remember it was really awkward? I think it was right before September 11th and

GLENN: Yeah, that's who I was thinking about. The Gary Conditt one no, wait, was it Gary Conditt?

STU: Chandra Leavy?

GLENN: Yeah, that's who I was thinking of. That one was really awkward and really bad.

PAT: Well, then there was David Vitter's, there's Eliot Spitzer, I mean, there's so many of them. McGreevey. And they have all got their wives there, their suffering wives.

GLENN: Sanford.

PAT: Sanford, same deal.

GLENN: This, I haven't accepted any of those not that I haven't accepted. Fine, no skin off my back. So, you know, whatever.

STU: About believability.

GLENN: I never believed any of them, until this one.

PAT: And it was, it was refreshing that Elin wasn't standing there by his side. Good for her. Good for her. It's your deal. You go deal with it.

GLENN: Would you stand by his side?

STU: No.

PAT: As a friend or are you talking about like my wife certainly wouldn't be by my side. No way. There's no way.

STU: I might be maybe I'm weak here but this, I don't even get to this point. I mean, the second I find out these stories are true, buh bye. Like we're already done with the proceedings at this point by the time he's making this speech.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: There's no, I would not that might be wrong in some way, but I'm gone if something like somebody does something like that to me, buh bye.

GLENN: Well, something like that, I mean, that was, what, 22 times, 22 women?

STU: Well, we don't some may have been telling lies.

PAT: Only 15 that I know of.

GLENN: Really?

PAT: Yeah.

STU: As you pointed out, some have told some stories that were untrue. It could have been he only hooked up with one girl once, a kiss at a wedding, it could have just been that.

GLENN: I don't really care. I don't want to hear the details. I've been so uninterested in the details of his sex life. Have you, have you guys?

STU: No.

PAT: No.

STU: The overwhelming nature of it is I think the only thing that's

PAT: The most compelling thing to do about what he did there was he accepted full responsibility. He didn't deflect it to anybody else and wouldn't even accept his wife, accepting responsibility for hitting him with a golf club or bashing in the window or any of that stuff. Good for him. He took full responsibility for his actions.

GLENN: Didn't say didn't even say

PAT: I've never seen that before, I don't think.

GLENN: You know, he said what I thought was interesting, because he started going down a road and I'm like, oh, boy. When he said, you know, I was young and I got into... blah, blah blah. And I thought, oh, boy, here he goes. And then he says, and I felt entitled to have fun and to explore all of my temptations.

PAT: That's therapy speaking right there. That's therapy. I bet you he just learned that.

GLENN: I don't know if this was written by Madison Avenue, and I hope it wasn't. It sounded like it had been written by him. At least it was read as if he understood it. I mean, he just

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: I felt like this was real for him.

PAT: If it wasn't real, if somebody wrote that for him, they're brilliant, genius.

GLENN: If it's not real no, no.

PAT: Seriously.

GLENN: But the way he connected with it. He should get an Emmy.

PAT: It was good, yeah.

GLENN: You know, I and only time will tell. And, you know, we don't want to lay in wait for him and go, there he is again. Only time will tell, but hopefully, hopefully he's, you know, he understands it and he's past it, working on moving past it and finding all of the things that, you know, are holes in his soul, if you will.

Glenn gives the latest coronavirus numbers, updating YOU on everything needed to know as Americans and officials monitor China's new COVID-19 virus:

Brother, Can You Spare $2 Trillion? https://www.cnbc.com/2020/03/25/coronavirus-stimulus-bill-updates-whats-in-the-2-trillion-relief-plan.html
  • US Senate Passes the largest economic stimulus bill in world history.
  • The Senate passes a roughly $2 trillion economic relief plan in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
  • It includes direct payments to Americans, strengthened unemployment insurance, loans to businesses small and large and increased health care resources for hospitals, states and municipalities.
  • Loans to small businesses are technically 'grants' covering payroll and rent payments. Grants do not have to be repaid.
  • It is unclear when the House will pass the legislation, though it aims to do so Friday.
Every American Will Get $1,200 in 2-3 Weeks, $2,400 plus up to 4 months Unemployment Benefits https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8152139/Every-American-four-months-unemployment-checks-earning-95-000.htm
  • Workers will get four months of unemployment pay plus additional $600 each.
  • Direct checks to Americans include 1,200 per adult making up to $75,000 a year before phasing out and ending altogether for those earning more than $99,000
  • That would result in $2,400 to a married couple making up to $150,000, with an additional $500 per child for each household.
  • 'Our expectation is within three weeks we will have direct payments out,' Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said.
Cuomo Confirms What Introverts Have Long Known: Social Distancing Works https://www.scmp.com/news/china/article/3077011/coronavirus-new-york-governor-andrew-cuomo-says-early-signs-show-social
  • Stringent density control measures may be working to contain the coronavirus in New York state, the epicenter of COVID-19 outbreak in the US, as the rate of hospitalization shows early signs of abating, Governor Andrew Cuomo said on Wednesday.
  • New York, which has 19 million residents and nearly 31,000 infections, now accounts for 56 per cent of the confirmed cases in the country and more than 7 percent of the world's total.
  • Cuomo had ordered all but essential businesses to shutter by Sunday evening and residents to limit their outdoor activities and practice social distancing, effectively putting the state on pause.
  • On Tuesday, the number of hospitalized patients had doubled every 4.7 days, slowing from the rate of every 3.4 days on Monday and every two days on Sunday, Cuomo said at his daily coronavirus briefing.
  • "This is a very positive sign," he said. "The arrows are heading into the right direction."
Were the Beads Worth It? Mardi Gras Gets Blame for Big Easy Outbreak https://news.trust.org/item/20200325200808-oc1ie
  • "Mardi Gras was the perfect storm, it provided the perfect conditions for the spread of this virus," said Dr. Rebekah Gee, who heads up Louisiana State University's health care services division.
  • She noted that Fat Tuesday fell on Feb. 25, when the virus was already in the United States but before the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and national leaders had raised the alarm with the American public.
  • "New Orleans had its normal level of celebration, which involved people congregating in large crowds and some 1.4 million tourists," Gee said. "We shared drink cups. We shared each other's space in the crowds. People were in close contact with catching beads. It is now clear that people also caught coronavirus."
  • New Orleans is on track to become the next coronavirus epicenter in the United States, dimming hopes that less densely populated and warmer-climate cities would escape the worst of the pandemic, and that summer month could see it wane.
  • Authorities have warned the number of cases in New Orleans could overwhelm its hospitals by April 4.
  • New Orleans is the biggest city in Louisiana, the state with the third-highest caseload of coronavirus in the United States on a per capita basis.
  • The growth rate in Louisiana tops all others, according to a University of Louisiana at Lafayette analysis of global data, with the number of cases rising by 30% in the 24 hours before noon on Wednesday.
  • On Tuesday, U.S. President Donald Trump issued a major federal disaster declaration for the state, freeing federal funds and resources.
US Military Officially On No-Travel Lockdown https://news.trust.org/item/20200325203242-zgoc4
  • Defense Secretary Mark Esper has issued a "stop all movement" order to the U.S. military halting travel and movement abroad for up to 60 days in an effort to limit the spread of the coronavirus through the ranks.
  • The measure is by far the Defense Department's most sweeping to date and will affect forces around the world.
  • Esper said in an interview that the order applied to all U.S. troops, civilian personnel and families, but noted that there would be some exceptions.
  • "The purpose is to make sure that we're not bringing the virus back home, infecting others, that we're not spreading it around the military," Esper said.
  • The order does include personnel who were to have been scheduled to be formally discharged from the Military in April or May.
  • Esper said one exception to the order would be the drawdown underway in Afghanistan, which will continue.
For The Best Darn Facemask In The Whole Wide World... https://www.foxnews.com/us/mypillow-other-us-companies-making-face-masks-to-meet-coronavirus-shortages
  • In Minnesota, the MyPillow company is refocusing 75 percent of its production to face masks for health care workers.
  • "We have the capacity to make a lot of things at big rates and we're going to be going hopefully from 10,000 units a day to 50,000 units a day in a very short period of time," CEO Mike Lindell told FOX 9 of Minneapolis-St. Paul.
  • The masks will go to hospitals in Minnesota as well as other states, he said. "Whatever it takes."
  • MyPillow worked with the Trump administration to get the proper design, Lindell told local Fox News 9.
  • Lindell joins literally hundreds of other companies in the US who have heeded the call of the Trump Administration to covert production to respirators, masks, ventilators, gowns and other needed medical equipment.
Further Evidence that COVID-19 Is Seasonal and May Spread Less in Summer Months https://news.yahoo.com/coronavirus-could-become-seasonal-top-us-scientist-001146451.html
  • There is a strong chance the new coronavirus could return in seasonal cycles, a senior US scientist said Wednesday, underscoring the urgent need to find a vaccine and effective treatments.
  • Anthony Fauci, who leads research into infectious diseases at the National Institutes of Health, told a briefing the virus was beginning to take root in the southern hemisphere, where winter is on its way.
  • "What we're starting to see now... in southern Africa and in the southern hemisphere countries, is that we're having cases that are appearing as they go into their winter season," he said.
  • "And if, in fact, they have a substantial outbreak, it will be inevitable that we need to be prepared that we'll get a cycle around the second time," Fauci said, referring to a 2nd cycle in the US late next fall in November or December.
  • "It totally emphasizes the need to do what we're doing in developing a vaccine, testing it quickly and trying to get it ready so that we'll have a vaccine available for that next cycle."
  • Fauci's comments suggesting the virus does better in colder weather than it does in hot and humid conditions follows a recent Chinese research paper -- still preliminary and awaiting peer-review -- that reached the same conclusion.

America Loses 500,000 Millionaires to COVID-19 - Bernie Sanders Elated https://www.msn.com/en-us/finance/markets/america-e2-80-99s-millionaire-ranks-shrink-by-500000-in-record-time/ar-BB11DrqN
  • At the close of 2019, there were an unprecedented 11 million American millionaires, a reflection of the longest bull market in history thanks to ultra-low interest rates and tax cuts.
  • Fast forward just a few months and it's a starkly different picture. The number of households in the U.S. above that threshold has dropped by at least 500,000 as of Friday, according to research firm Spectrem Group.
  • The tandem financial and health crises wrought by COVID-19 have disproportionately eroded the fortunes of the wealthy, who are more likely to own equities than the overall population.
  • At the end of 2019, the top 1% of households owned 53.5% of equities and mutual fund shares, according to Federal Reserve statistics.
  • The losses affected the rich at every level, from the mass affluent to those worth more than $25 million, according to the report. The wealth destruction at the very top has been especially steep, with the top 1% of households losing over $7.9 Trillion in wealth so far in 2020.
50% of Americans Living Under Shelter In Place or Home Quarantine Orders https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/more-than-half-of-us-population-will-be-under-orders-to-stay-home-by-midweek
  • The majority of the public will be ordered to stay home in the coming days as the coronavirus pandemic sweeps the nation.
  • A total of 13 states and at least 16 municipalities have enacted measures to keep residents inside their homes to prevent the spread of the virus, according to CNN.
  • That number, which amounts to 148,577,262 people, or 45% of the population, is expected to grow this week as five more states and nine more municipalities institute additional measures.
  • After the new orders go into effect, a total of 176,385,537 people, or 54% of the population, will be asked to stay home.
  • Many states and cities have not named a specific date, although some, such as LA County and the State of New York, have identified April 19th as the target 'end' of the at-home quarantine orders.
Uniformed Military Personnel Set Up Make-shift Morgue Outside NYC Hospital https://nypost.com/2020/03/24/makeshift-morgue-for-coronavirus-victims-set-up-outside-nyc-hospital/
  • In a scene reminiscent of Hollywood disaster movies (and more recently China, Italy and Spain), US Military personnel have set up a tent-based morgue outside of Bellvue Hospital in NYC.
  • Two refrigerated trailers were trucked to the site at 30th Street and the FDR Drive, along with a customized RV with a printed sign labeled: "MOBILE COMMAND CENTER — MEDICAL EXAMINER."
  • A team of men wearing camouflage fatigues and face masks set up a series of white tents that form a tunnel to a larger, white tent.
  • Other men wearing jackets that identified them as members of the NYPD and the city's Office of the Chief Medical Examiner were also at the scene.
  • A source familiar with the operation said that additional refrigerated trailers would be brought to the site and that similar set-ups would be built up outside other hospitals.
  • "The plan is for them to be there and throughout the city," the source said, with as many as 6 temporary morgue locations near hospitals in New York City.
UV Rays Proven to Destroy SARS-Cov-2 Virus https://www.accuweather.com/en/health-wellness/what-infection-rates-in-iceland-and-australia-may-reveal-about-how-covid-19-could-spread-in-the-us/707057
  • The infection rate for COVID-19 is 22 times higher in Iceland as compared to Australia.
  • The research comes as scientists in Hong Kong demonstrate that SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for COVID-19, is easily destroyed with UV light, just like all other known Coronaviruses.
  • "Direct exposure to UV light breaks down the membrane that houses the RNA of the virus," Dr Lon Kiang, lead researcher of the study said. Without the membrane, the virus cannot attach itself to healthy cells in the human body.
  • "This was expected, but is still certainly good news," he said.
  • Researchers said the findings may indicate that the virus will have a harder time spreading during warmer summer months, when more UV light strikes surfaces, including clothing and human skin, which may contain viral particles.
  • Scientists warned against directly and intentionally exposing skin to UV lights, which can cause burns and carries other risks, such as Cancer.

The mainstream media and the left are eager to report anything negative about President Donald Trump, even if it turns out to be Chinese Communist Party propaganda and disinformation.

On "GlennTV," Glenn uncovered some of the lies China's Communist Party is peddling to its own people and the rest of the world.

Diagnosed with pneumonia and coronavirus, Rio Giardinieri, 52, was admitted to the ICU at Joe DiMaggio hospital in South Florida. After more than a week without showing any improvement, doctors told him there was nothing more they could do. Desperately ill, Giardinieri started saying his "goodbyes" to family and friends.

That's when a friend told him there was a potential "cure" for coronavirus, an anti-malaria drug called hydroxycloroquine. Though doctors at the hospital said they couldn't prescribe hydroxycloroquine, they put Giardinieri in touch with an infectious disease doctor who authorized the use. The next morning, he says he woke up feeling "absolutely perfect."

Giardinieri joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to share his remarkable story and to weigh in on why he thinks information about this promising treatment for COVID-19 isn't being made more readily available.

"I'm not a scientist. I'm not a doctor. I can just tell you how I feel. And I know that I was not doing well. In my mind, I didn't believe I was going to be here by the morning," Giardinieri said. "I don't know what else to attribute [for recovery] but that medicine ... and it's not just me that it's worked for. There're many people this has worked for. So, you know, I certainly understand the hospital's position. They may not be too happy me telling the story. But the facts are the facts."
