Dear Paul McCartney: Shut up and sing



Beatle Bashes Bush at White House

GLENN: Yeah. Paul McCartney was there and he may be in diapers soon and Paul McCartney was there at the world's most expensive tent. The only tent I've ever seen with chandeliers. And I've seen him several times this year as we're in economic turmoil. It's good to see them just keep use —

PAT: I love it when they set the Constitution on fire. You know, it's literally burning in the archives.

GLENN: To light the candles.

PAT: To light the candles.

GLENN: To light the candles under the tent with the chandeliers in the White House.

PAT: And as the gulf fills with billions of gallons of oil, they're partying.

GLENN: No.

PAT: They are not letting that get in the way —

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: — of the McCartney bash.

GLENN: But it's good because usually at the Library of Congress, I think they only have these really expensive tents now and these parties because the president is so tired from reading history and books.

PAT: And then when he's done with that, letters at night from children without feet.

GLENN: Yeah. So he's got that. But this is what Paul McCartney pointed out.

McCARTNEY: It's a fantastic honor. The Gershwin families have given me this incredible award and for me to be awarded it by the Library of Congress and in fact, after the last eight years it's great to have a president who knows what a library is. (Cheering).

PAT: I get it. Because Bush didn't know what a library was.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. Was that at the event?

PAT: Yeah, it was either at or backstage afterwards. He was holding the thing and —

GLENN: Okay. But

PAT: (Inaudible) was there and I think that the rest of the audience was still sitting there, it seems to me if I remember the —

GLENN: But this was at the White House dinner?

PAT: Uh huh.

GLENN: Because I just want to — okay. I mean, expect Paul McCartney, please.

PAT: Yeah, it's not even his president. So —

GLENN: Yeah. Please, who cares what Paul McCartney says. But I want you to listen to this.

McCARTNEY: It's a fantastic honor, the Gershwin family to give me this incredible award and for me to be awarded it by the Library of Congress and, in fact, after the last eight years it's great to have a president who knows what a library is.

GLENN: Listen to the crowd.

(Cheering)

PAT: Yeah, they're all into it. Man, they are all into it.

GLENN: That's the kind of attitude I like to have in a White House.

PAT: I do, too.

GLENN: You know, it might be all the tent parties that we're having, you know, instead of in the East Room. Is it the East Room? West Room, I don't know, that other room.

PAT: Where everybody usually parties.

GLENN: It's nice that we have the tent now so you can kind of let your hair down, you know. Whoa!

PAT: And bash former presidents. That's a good thing.

GLENN: It's fantastic.

PAT: That's a good thing.

GLENN: That's fantastic. I think that is what Washington intended to happen at state dinners. I do.


 

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
