Glenn Beck: Richard Blumenthal- misspoke?

GLENN: We have the Richard Blumenthal thing, and this is why I'm not talking much about the elections today. I'm going to leave that to Bret Baier and Sean Hannity on television and Rush Limbaugh on radio. I'm not talking much about it because I see some of the candidates that are out there and I don't think Richard Blumenthal's going to help us too much. How about you?

PAT: I don't think so.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: This is what he said a couple of days ago, of course.

BLUMENTHAL: We have learned something very important since the days that I served in Vietnam.

PAT: Okay. We learned

GLENN: Wait a minute. Play it again.

PAT: You want to make sure of what he said?

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: Okay. Here it is.

BLUMENTHAL: We have learned something very important since the days that I've served in Vietnam.

GLENN: Since the days I've served in Vietnam.

PAT: In Vietnam. Okay.

GLENN: Now, the problem is he didn't — he received five deferments. So he didn't serve in Vietnam. Here's what he said yesterday surrounded by a bunch of people dressed in VFW outfits.

BLUMENTHAL: Now, on a few occasions I have misspoken about my service.

PAT: I knew it.

GLENN: Okay, hang on just a second. Hang on just a second.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: On a few occasions.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Not just once.

PAT: You know that's because he's done it before.

STU: Oh, they have video, yeah, they have tape of other times.

GLENN: On a few occasions. I can understand misspeaking —

PAT: Once.

GLENN: Once.

PAT: And then you'd be careful. If somebody would have said, hey, did you say "In"? Didn't you serve "During"?

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: Do we need to send you to preposition cool?

GLENN: Well, no, he's only the attorney general. So legalese.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Okay. So on a few occasions I misspoke. That's a pretty big misstatement, but go ahead.

BLUMENTHAL: And I take full responsibility.

GLENN: Stop. For what? For misspeaking?

PAT: Yeah, you don't need to take responsibility if you misspoke, right?

GLENN: You don't need to take responsibility.

PAT: I'm sorry; I misspoke.

STU: Who else is going to take responsibility for you misspeaking? Is there another option other than you?

PAT: If I say crap instead of crumb, I'm going to say, crap, I misspoke. I'm not going to apologize for it.

STU: If you say crumb, I misspoke, then it would really be bad.

GLENN: Right. It would be really bad because then you would have to apologize because you did it twice.

PAT: And then I misspoke twice.

BLUMENTHAL: And I will not allow.

PAT: Oh, he won't allow.

GLENN: Okay, stop, stop, stop, stop. He's getting applause. I misspoke on several occasions.

PAT: Yea! (Applause)

GLENN: There's a brave politician!

BLUMENTHAL: Anyone can take a few misplaced words and impugn my record of service.

(Applause)

PAT: No impugning, yeah!

GLENN: Dirt bag politician for president! Dirt bag politician for president!

BLUMENTHAL: And I am proud of it.

PAT: He's proud. Well, I'm proud of him for being proud of it.

GLENN: I'm proud of him for being brave enough to say that he misspoke on several occasions.

PAT: You are not as proud of him as I'm proud that he was also proud that he served in the Reserves but just misspoke about his service.

GLENN: Well, I am not as proud as you are on that.

PAT: No.

GLENN: But you can't compare my pride to your pride on how proud I am of him not letting people impugn those five deferments.

STU: See, I'm mostly proud about the fact that he's proud now only that he's discovered he's proud about being proud after the fact.

PAT: Right.

STU: When he was proud that he's caught. Not that he was proud earlier when he realized it but now that he's caught, he's proud.

PAT: But how proud are you that he's proud of those who actually did serve in their pride in serving in Vietnam even though he's proud of not having served in Vietnam but rather during Vietnam.

STU: Proudly.

GLENN: That is fantastic.

PAT: I'm proud that he doesn't know his prepositions.

GLENN: Can I tell you something? Can I tell you something? Whatever happened? I am so, here's — let me boil it down. I am proud to be a part of a group called media that is so proud of their service to our country to make sure to point out that George Bush never flew in Vietnam.

PAT: Yeah!

GLENN: Never flew anywhere. Was just in the National Guard, you know, actually doing stuff in the National Guard.

PAT: Oh, and he was awful.

GLENN: Oh, he was awful and they went and they investigated and they got those Dan Rather actually was willing to lose his job over it because it was that important.

PAT: How proud were you of Dan? I was so proud. I was proud of Dan.

GLENN: I was proud of Dan.

PAT: Proud of the media.

GLENN: And now I am so proud that they don't give a rat's ass about this guy. That's what I am really —

PAT: Yeah!

GLENN: Yeah! More dirtbags in Washington.

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."

Glenn Beck and The Nazarene Fund have been working tirelessly to evacuate Americans and our allies from Afghanistan, thanks to the U.S. government's failure to do so. But it's been far from easy. A recent Newsweek article, titled "Taliban Holds Up Glenn Beck Group's Planes," addressed some of the most recent challenges. The article claimed that six planes — filled with Americans and SIVs ready for takeoff — were "grounded by the Taliban amid negotiations with the U.S. State Department." So, what's actually going on? Why is the State Department meddling in the rescue? And what are the next steps to get these Americans home?
