Glenn Beck: Want some carrots to go with those fries?

GLENN: Well, up in the gubernatorial race in Illinois, there was there was a serious problem with the debate that they had to get right to. They want to talk right about the issues, corruption, et cetera, et cetera.

PAT: Uh huh.

GLENN: Can you can you give me the

PAT: Should I walk you through this?

GLENN: Set the scene.

PAT: There was. It was Tuesday night between the gubernatorial debate between Illinois Governor Pat Quinn and State Senator Bill Brady who we met on Saturday night. Quinn called on Brady well, here's the problem: The Chicago Sun Times wrote about your comments which were obviously quite inflammatory, quite inflammatory, Glenn.

GLENN: It just came out.

PAT: I know. I know.

GLENN: I saw that it was I think it was the BBC or somebody said it was well crafted.

PAT: Well crafted. Did they

GLENN: Now. They said it was well crafted.

PAT: Here were your comments. Get away from my french fries, Mrs. Obama, Beck warned. The first politician that comes up to me with a carrot stick, I've got a place for it and it's not in my tummy. Okay? So, that brought at the debate, at the gubernatorial debate, that brought the crowd to a laughing roar. They started roaring with laughter.


GLENN: Really?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: We have to get this audio. Stu, can you get find this audio from the debate?

PAT: I'm looking for it right now, and so is TV. But Quinn didn't think that was very funny, obviously.

GLENN: Quinn didn't?

PAT: No.

GLENN: Oh, boy.

PAT: I thought it was important I was disturbed on Saturday night to see Glenn Beck come to our state and disparage and the mock the first lady of the United States of America.

GLENN: Okay. Hang on just a second. I don't think I mocked her. It wasn't really about her. It was about any politician, any politician that comes to me and tries to take away my french fries and replace it with a carrot.

PAT: Well, he said Michelle Obama is my friend. Then he called on Brady to apologize for your marks.

GLENN: That is very interesting.

PAT: And

GLENN: Did he apologize?

PAT: Bill Brady answered, to the roar of the crowd, you have got to be kidding me.

GLENN: (Laughter.)

PAT: That was fantastic.

GLENN: Can we see if we can get him on the phone? Can we get Brady on the phone? I would like to see if we could talk to him about that so I can certainly not apologize to him or anyone else for a comment I stand by.

PAT: You stand by the french fry remark?

GLENN: Yes. Any politician that comes near my french fries, tries to replace it with a carrot, I've got a place for it and it ain't in my tummy. I stand by that. I stand by that. (Laughter.)

PAT: I've seen this kind of rhetoric before.

GLENN: I have, too. Oh, when they start putting things in not your tummy, oh, it just

PAT: I get scared and I begun to weep. (Laughter.)

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.
