GLENN: We just found some more pictures of the president with the fly and I just have to go back because, Pat, Stu brought his picture in. It's from the same press conference yesterday.

PAT: And the fly's in a different position. So it literally crawled across his face. Or maybe it just flew to a different location without him slapping it away.

STU: Yeah.

PAT: I mean, it is absolutely in a different location.

GLENN: Does he have nerve endings in his face?

PAT: I don't know.

GLENN: Seriously. Have you ever had a fly walk across your face —

PAT: And you just left it there.

GLENN: And you left it there.

PAT: Yeah, whatever. Especially while you're giving a speech.

GLENN: Have you seen the websites that are popping up on this stuff? Here's one I like. The fellowship of the minds. These are — they've got to be just nuts, you know, blog sites, but listen to this. Obama flies and bees. What is it with Obama and flying insects? During the 2008 campaign, an LA Times reporter assigned to follow Obama described the following scene. On one hot summer afternoon in Iowa — this is LA Times from the campaign: Obama was flipping burgers at a backyard barbecue in what the campaign hoped would be an exquisite photo opportunity. A fly began circling his head and then more flies. Pretty soon flies were swarming him. It was awful to watch.

PAT: Okay. All right.

GLENN: Then on June 16th, 2009, Obama was being interviewed in the White House. A fly kept buzzing around his head. How does a fly get in the White House? What are you talking about? Through the door or the windows. Well, they're secret commando flies. What a ridiculous thing, without a moment's hesitation, Obama killed the fly with his hand.

I have to tell you, I've never seen anybody do that. Oh, boy. They go into how it's Lord of the Flies, he may be the Lord of the Flies. Yesterday, May 16th, comes an even more bizarre incident. Eric Zimmerman of the hill reports that a swarm of bees, thousands of bees hovered as... the bees know... hovered as Obama tried to leave the White House to play basketball at Fort McNair.

PAT: Remember that? That was just two weeks ago, maybe.



Obama to W.H. Fly: "Get Out of Here!

STU: It's happening fast.

GLENN: By the time Obama returned at noon, the bees were apparently nowhere in sight. They did write in the Bible, and the Amorites, which get in that mountain came out against you and chased you as bees do. Deuteronomy. Look it up. It's right there. The book of Deuteronomy is the last of five books, blah, blah blah, words given by God to Moses. Apparently there's bees, Deuteronomy. So you got that going for you.

PAT: Now, if this was George W. Bush, wouldn't even we be talking about that? The rat, okay, the bees, the flies. I mean, the left will be dismissing this entirely, but we would be talking about it.

STU: We know the truth.

PAT: We know the truth.

GLENN: Dominick, can you zoom in here on Camera 4 and show this? This was weird, too. I've never seen this, either. A rat comes across. We'll have this video on tonight. Right here is a rat, and it runs to the president, across at the speech.

PAT: Kind of scurried back and forth, too.

GLENN: Yeah, it was really freaky. Not as freaky as a fly landing on his face and then crawling around and him ---

PAT: Doing nothing about it.

GLENN: Doing nothing about it.

STU: By the way, the New York Times has reported that flies are swarming the White House. Quote, actual flies are swarming the place and Obama has come to now chasing down flies in the Oval Office with his briefing papers to smack them.

GLENN: When was this printed?

STU: Last year. It's happening fast, everyone.

GLENN: The flies know. The flies — he's Dr. Doolittle.

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.
