GLENN: There's also a couple of things going around and I am so sick of my

own staff going, "Did you see Jon Stewart last night?" No, I didn't. I didn't

see it. I don't care. He was on Letterman. When was the last time I watched

David Letterman? I don't even know. David Letterman is so irrelevant that it's

laughable. So no, I didn't. But I think that was one of the first things that

Pat said to me this morning: Did you see Letterman last night? Come on, Pat, you

didn't see Letterman.

PAT: No, I didn't see it.

GLENN: No.

PAT: I'm hearing about it on Mediaite.

GLENN: Uh huh.

PAT: But they wrote a great story about his appearance because they're saying

that Stewart seems fairly obsessed with you because he's talked about you now on

his appearances on Oprah, O'Reilly, and last night with David Letterman and, you

know, because there's several minutes. Here's just a little bit of what they had

to say about you yesterday.

STEWART: You know how we used to be on the road and we would do the same act

night after night.

VOICE: Right. On the road? Hell, I'm doing it here.

PAT: That's for sure.

GLENN: That's a great line.

PAT: Happens to be true.

GLENN: Yeah.

VOICE: But you do the same thing night after night but you've got to make it

seem like it just came to you. The whole trick of his show is, folks, it's just

we are... (laughing).

GLENN: Very funny.

VOICE: We... (laughing). If we could just go back to 1979. Did you see, this was

the greatest thing. This is when I realized how much I love this guy. He does

the program, he's sitting on his

GLENN: I don't think he does.

PAT: I don't think he loves this guy. He loves making money off of you. He does

love that.

VOICE: Weeping for do you remember the old Coke commercial with Mean Joe Green?

VOICE: Sure.

VOICE: Where he says have a Coke? And he says, that's okay. And the little boy

goes, come on, take it. And Mean Joe Green finally is like, all right, kid,

takes it and then he throws him the Jersey, comes back to Glenn and... why can't

we go back there? Politicians won't take you back there. And I'm like, I think

we can't go back there because it's fictional. I think it's a fictional

commercial. And then I remembered I think they taped it in 1979 which is when

the Iranian hostage crisis was. So I guess we could go back there. But why would

we want to?

VOICE: Exactly.

VOICE: And that's when I realized, he made that fictional moment.

VOICE: He's Bobby Heenan. Come on. He's Bobby Heenan.

VOICE: I like him. I want to have him on my program.

GLENN: I don't know who Bobby Heenan is.

PAT: No idea.

VOICE: We have invited him numerous times to be on this show. He will not come

on this show.

VOICE: I invited myself onto his program and did not come on.

GLENN: I wear those both as a badge of honor.

PAT: And you should.

GLENN: Yeah. I mean

PAT: The reference to Bobby Heenan or whatever, whoever he's talking about there

is a really good reason not to go on Letterman's irrelevant show. Nobody knows

who Bobby Heenan is.

GLENN: Doesn't matter. Look, David Letterman, you know, he doesn't believe, I

believe, in anything I say. I don't believe in the things that he believes in.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: You know, why would I go there?

PAT: It's a useless exercise.

GLENN: I don't believe

PAT: In futility.

GLENN: Yeah, I don't believe in boycotting anything. I just believe in this: I

spend my money and my time in things that I believe in. I don't believe in David

Letterman. David Letterman does what David Letterman does. He's funny sometimes,

he's I don't know honestly, David, I don't know how you do it every day. I don't

know how you are still doing the top 10 and you don't think, really? Again? I'm

doing this? I mean, I don't know how you do that.

PAT: It's only been 30 years.

GLENN: Yeah. But, you know, that's cool and I have nothing I don't want him off

the air, I don't want to silence him, nothing. Whatever. It just plays no time

in my life because I spend my time and my money on the things that are important

to me. David Letterman isn't.

On the Jon Stewart, I'm just trying to think. This week, let's see. I've had the

Holocaust survivor and the historian on as a guest this week. I'm trying to

think where the comedian comes in. I mean, I just don't do those interviews.

PAT: The comedian selling a book, where does that fit in? Yeah.

GLENN: He wants to sell his books and I think it's interesting that no one in

the press has said that he's doing a political rally just to make money, yet

that's all that you ever heard about me. That's all you ever heard. And that's

okay. I mean, I have no problem with him making money. He's got a book for sale.

Go buy the book. Don't buy the book. I'm not buying the book. I don't really

care about the book. I don't want to ban the book. I don't want anybody to not

read the book because that's what whatever. You know, neither of these guys need

a handout.

PAT: No.

GLENN: But apparently they both believe they need a hand up in their ratings or

their book sales. Sorry. Can't provide it for ya.

PAT: But what I found interesting about this Mediaite article was the last part

of it where they're talking about the exchange between Letterman and Stewart

last night where it says Beck becomes the subject of conversation between host

and guest in a manner that ostensibly seems friendly but really puts Beck in a

most unflattering light. There is a whiff of junior high cool kids picking on

the new kid who's suddenly the most popular behind his back. That is exactly,

exactly how that came off.

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.
