Glenn Beck: Ayers dissed by... a Kennedy?

GLENN: Now, speaking of Bill Ayers, I think this is a sad, sad day for Bill Ayers, which makes it a happy, happy day for me. The board of trustees has decided that the University of Chicago will not give him emeritus status.

PAT: Oh, no.

GLENN: Uh-huh.

PAT: Oh, no.

GLENN: Uh-huh. And the man who killed it, a Kennedy.

PAT: Oh.

Glenn: Yeah.

PAT: Why would he do that? Why would he do something like that?

GLENN: Well, mainly because he's a, you know -- Christopher Kennedy and he noted that Bill Ayers dedicated a book to, among others, a man who killed Chairman Kennedy's father, Robert F. Kennedy, and he just has a hard time getting over that whole, Hey, you dedicated a book to the guy who killed my dad. I mean, what --

PAT: What a hot head. Come on. Let it go, man.

GLENN: The book includes a dedication to a lengthy list of revolutionary figures, musicians, including Sirhan Sirhan who shot Robert Kennedy to death in 1968. Kennedy -- Chairman Kennedy said there's nothing more apathetical to the hopes for a university that is lively and yet civil or to the hopes of our founding fathers -- this is a Kennedy? -- in hopes of our founding fathers for their great experiment of a self-governing people than to permanently seal off debate with one's opponents by killing them. There can be no place in a democracy to celebrate political assassination or to honor those who do so.

Is this a happy day?

PAT: And yet, there's no mention of his terrorist past. It's just the book dedication?

GLENN: Could you not rain on my parade, Mr. Little Black Rain Cloud? Huh?

PAT: It is something you right. That's nice.

GLENN: Do you know what this is? You become my wife. Okay. Let's talk about William Ayers. That makes me happen.

PAT: But you cite that? A book dedication over his actual terrorism?

GLENN: Could I have 10 seconds of happiness?

PAT: Let me just give you the moment.

GLENN: I mean --

PAT: The moment is yours. Cherish it.

GLENN: I am. I'm trying to but you're -- what are those, locusts?

PAT: Crickets. That's my being quiet.

GLENN: You're the loudest quiet person I'm --

PAT: It's your moment. Shhh. Shhh.

GLENN: You wrecked it. You wrecked it.

PAT: It's your moment. Go ahead. Celebrate. Celebrate the moment. It's yours. It's all you. It's all you. Go ahead. Live it, love it.

GLENN: If there could be a divorce for best friends, I would have divorced you long ago.

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.
