GLENN: Okay. I've been busy on these things and Pat and Stu have been trying to follow what's going on especially, my favorite story I think has to come from Baucus.

PAT: Yeah, Max Baucus from Montana which is a pretty conservative state, I think he is going to have a really good time in his next election cycle because the guy is just getting smarter and smarter and more in touch with his constituents every day. Here's what he has said about the healthcare bill. He and Kathleen Sebelius were in Montana talking about the healthcare bill and people were asking him, well, Max, you helped author this thing. Did you read ‑‑ did even you read the whole bill? Because we're a little hacked off that ‑‑ and there it is. There's hacked off for you. We're a little hacked off that people haven't read the bill. And he said I ‑‑

GLENN: I love these people who say read the bill.

PAT: Read the bill.

CONYERS: I love these members that say read the bill. What good is reading the bill if it's 1,000 pages and you don't have two days and two lawyers to find out what it means after you read the bill.

PAT: That's what I... read the bill?

GLENN: Okay. So Max?

PAT: So Max says I don't ‑‑ look, I don't think you want me to waste my time to read every page of the healthcare bill. You know why? It's statutory language. We hire experts. What?

GLENN: Wait.

PAT: We didn't hire experts. We elected you!

GLENN: You. You're the one who's supposed to do it for us!

PAT: I get a kick out of these people who say read the bill.

GLENN: You know ‑‑

PAT: Read every page.

GLENN: Can I tell you something?

PAT: I get people who do that.

STU: Know what you're voting on.

PAT: Know, know what you're talking about. I get a kick out of these people. You know how hard it is to know what I'm talking about? I pay people a lot of money to know what I'm talking about.

STU: Have an idea of where you are sending our trillion dollars.

PAT: I get a kick out of ‑‑ do you know how much money we make? A lot. I can't keep track of trillions of dollars. I'd need a couple of accountants to do that.

GLENN: It's like, do you have the audio of Donald Rumsfeld on September 9th, 2001, saying we've found a discrepancy here; it appears that the Pentagon has misplaced or lost $2 trillion.

STU: He's criticizing that, by the way.

GLENN: I know that. No, I know that. No, he's like, we've got to get to the bottom of it. We never got to the bottom of it. I never heard anything about the $2 trillion. How do you misplace $2 trillion? Where did I put ‑‑ honey, where did I put my wallet? I mean, what, are you kidding me?

STU: The greatest thing is you actually are misquoting that number. I believe it was $2.3 trillion, which means you just left off $300 billion in a rounding error.

PAT: Nice spin trying to cover for the Bush administration again, Glenn. That's great. Way to go.

GLENN: Unbelievable.

PAT: But when you're just a Republican hack.

STU: When you are dropping off $300 billion because it's not of consequence to the amount of number, money you are talking about, that's a problem.

GLENN: That's a lot of money, yeah, that's a lot of money.

PAT: But that's where it's gotten, isn't it? It's so big now.

GLENN: $300 billion used to be real money.

PAT: Not anymore. It's not.

GLENN: Remember when $300 billion was $300 billion? Now, why read the bill?

PAT: $300 billion?

GLENN: I kept that in my sock drawer for years.

PAT: I can't even buy a small third world nation for $300 billion.

GLENN: Why shouldn't Max Baucus read the bills? Are you kidding me?

PAT: I just wrote the bill.

GLENN: We just hired a guy named bill. We just talk to him.

PAT: I hope, and I ‑‑ Max Baucus used to be ‑‑ he used to be pretty conservative.

STU: I don't know if I believe you on that.

PAT: I don't know what happened to you.

STU: You've said that before and I don't believe it.

PAT: He was pretty reasonable.

GLENN: Listen to him.

PAT: He was pretty reasonable.

PAT: Bleep, bleep, bleep, that's all, folks.

PAT: Well, Max Baucus, I think I voted for him. I think he was one of my first.

GLENN: Now it comes out.

STU: Pat Gray equals healthcare. I see.

PAT: It was 1980.

STU: Yeah, you knew, though. What did you know and when did you know it?

GLENN: Hold it. Maybe we've actually just stumbled onto the problem. When did you vote for him?

PAT: 1980.

GLENN: 1980.

PAT: '80.

GLENN: He's still there.

PAT: He's still there. I think he got there in '76 but I was too young to vote at the time. So I think he's ‑‑

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

PAT: I mean, the guy has been there forever!

GLENN: That's the problem.

PAT: Yeah, it's time to go, Max.

GLENN: Send them home.

PAT: Home! Max Baucus phone home. Go home.

STU: Wow, you talked about the 1980 vote with a 1982 reference.

GLENN: It was very nice.

PAT: Tied it right in.

GLENN: Not a lot of old‑timey radio people can do that as well and as seamlessly as Pat has just done.

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: That is very, very good.

PAT: That's when radio used to mean something, the ET references.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
