Glenn Beck: POTUS seeking 'ass to kick'

GLENN: Okay. I want to play the audio that is so unpresidential that I've never heard a president say this. And it's odd. It just doesn't feel right. And the press is all saying, "Well, he's just trying to show passion." No. No, he's not. That is a misunderstanding on what these — who these people are and who the president is keeping at bay. Go ahead. Play the audio.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: I was down there a month ago before most of these talking heads were even paying attention to the gulf. A month ago I was meeting with fishermen down there standing in the rain talking about what a potential crisis this could be.

GLENN: That's quite a statement.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: And I don't stand around talking to experts because this is a college seminar. We talk to these folks because they potentially have the best answer so I know who —

GLENN: Can you stop for a second? Could you stop for a second? Could you look up — what is he talking about? Could somebody in the audience? And e mail that to — to you, Pat? Give your e mail address. Can they e mail it to you? Do you have —

PAT: Yeah, just Pat@... at —

GLENN: GlennBeck.com.

PAT: GlennBeck.com.

GLENN: Did he want to give it out. Listen, here's the thing. Somebody look this up. Why was he down there a month ago? Because a month ago was about the time that the president of BP was selling all of his shares and about the same time that Goldman Sachs sold about a half a billion dollars worth of their shares in BP. So it would be interesting to see, why was he down there a month ago? He was down there a month ago saying what a disaster this could be. What are the odds of that?

PAT: Well, but it's been over a month since this happened. It's been, what, 50 days now? So it could be a month.

GLENN: So wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. Hold it just a second. I never even thought of that. It's going on two months.

PAT: Going on two months. And he was down there a month ago.

GLENN: The talking heads were down there 20 days before.

PAT: We were talking about it the first day.

GLENN: Yeah. I mean, hello. Okay, that doesn't make any sense. Forget what I just said.

PAT: Good thing I didn't give the e mail address for that.

GLENN: These aren't the droids you were looking for. What a ridiculous — I lose time now?

PAT: It's gone by so fast.

GLENN: It's gone by so fast. That's the most ridiculous thing I ever heard: I was down there 20 days after this thing started. Oh!

PAT: We talked about that. Do you remember?

GLENN: I know.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: But I thought he was referring to something that — I forgot that it was already —

PAT: Yeah, it bean a while.

GLENN: It's been more than a month. And here's what he's saying. Listen, this is on the Today Show. This is with Matt Lauer.

PAT: So he made me stop it there. All right, here it goes again.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: I was down there a month ago before most of these talking heads were even paying attention to the gulf. A month ago I was meeting with fishermen down there standing in the rain talking about what a potential crisis this could be. And I don't sit around just talking to experts because this is a college seminar.

PAT: No.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We talk to these folks because they potentially have the best answers, so I know whose ass to kick.

PAT: Oh, that's — oh, that's presidential, very classy. That's classy.

GLENN: Never heard him say that. Now, here's how the media is spinning this. That he's saying that because they are saying did he have passion on anything. Well, hello. This is a new revelation to you? I mean, show me a time that he has gotten anything but angry. I haven't seen it. And believe me, don't poke the monster. Don't. Don't poke him. I don't want to see him rip off that mask of total serenity. Thank you. Notice he says the talking heads. It's not the talking heads. He's got the uber left coming out against him. It's the uber left that's coming out. Why is he pinning it on the talking heads? He's losing his support... from the left. When we come back, I want to explain, I want to explain the anarchists of the early 1900s and the connection of what is happening today. This is really important because it goes to a big meeting that is happening in Washington yesterday, today and tomorrow, and they are progressives having a big convention in Washington. One of the topics I think tomorrow, we've got to get a camera there. I've got to see this. The Beck and Bachmann problem. I love that. That's good. Maybe Michelle and I could go and attend together. This is the heat from the uber left. It all will come together for you in your head and it will all — you'll understand because you'll see it in Europe. It's already happening. I have to correct one mistake that I've made and it was a critical mistake, and when I correct it, all of a sudden the formula works.

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.
