GLENN: Here's Oprah Winfrey from the Barbara Walters, I don't know, most fascinating people or whatever her special is.

WALTERS: A lot of women have close friends. Very few have friends as close as yours. Describe that friendship to me.

WINFREY: Whew. Okay. She is

GLENN: Okay. Stop for a second. She's crying here.

WINFREY: the mother I never had.

GLENN: She's crying here and somebody said to me yesterday, it was like, Oprah was crying about, and I have but look, I'm almost all chick. I'm half Oprah. I could talk about my friends and cry.

PAT: Three quarters Oprah.

GLENN: Okay, thank you. I could talk about my friends and cry. I mean, I have. I got one of my a guy who I think is one of the best people I know I mean besides you, Pat. One of the best men I know sitting out in the hallway and I have cried about him, describing him, I think to you even.

PAT: Mmm hmmm.

GLENN: I mean, so you could do that.

PAT: Mmm hmmm.

GLENN: It's not weird that she's crying. And listen to the way she describes Gayle King.

PAT: Yeah, first of all she says and I think we just missed it. Maybe I'll go back.

GLENN: No, I got it. My mother

PAT: The mother I never had.

GLENN: I never had.

PAT: Yeah.

WINFREY: She is the sister everybody would want. She is the friend that everybody deserves.

GLENN: That is a great compliment.

PAT: That's nice. That's really nice.

WINFREY: I don't know a better person.

GLENN: That is an amazing compliment.

WINFREY: I don't know a better person.

WALTERS: Why is it making you cry?

WINFREY: Shoot. I wasn't going to cry here.

GLENN: How did you know?

WINFREY: It's making me cry because I'm thinking about how much I probably have never told her that. Tissue, please. I now need tissue. I've never told her that.

WALTERS: So when those, to me, dumb rumors come up that you

WINFREY: Are gay?

WALTERS: Are gay. What do you say?

WINFREY: Well, I have said we are not gay enough times, I'm not lesbian, I'm not even kind of lesbian, and the reason why it irritates me is because it means that somebody must think I'm lying. That's number one. Number two, why would you want to hide it? That is not the way I run my life.

GLENN: All right. Stop for a second. I don't think she's a lesbian. I mean, we know Gayle King. We don't know Oprah, but we know Gayle King and

PAT: We've met Oprah several times.

GLENN: Yeah, but Gayle King Oprah won't and Gayle King doesn't want to be ratted out like this, either.

PAT: No.

GLENN: Gayle King and I were friends at some point. It's not like we're, you know, hanging out. It's not like I was, you know, making sure she wasn't a lesbian. You know what I'm saying? But she's a really nice lady. Really nice lady. She, I don't think, still feels the same way about me now that she did.

PAT: I don't think so, yeah.

GLENN: But she's very nice. She's very nice. And you know, Oprah is the kind of person that would come out and say, I'm a lesbian.

PAT: She seems like it. I don't I mean, we don't obviously know, have a personal relationship.

GLENN: Here's where Oprah is, and this is what I guess confuses people, I guess, is that she has a good friend. Well, am I gay? Because I have really close male friends.

PAT: Yeah. I mean

GLENN: Does that make me gay? That's ridiculous, ridiculous. Where people get, I guess confused or the question that should be answered is are you anti marriage. Because I remember the episode, I don't remember if anybody remembers this, but I remember the episode where she had Brad Pitt and, who was he married to before Angelina Jolie?

PAT: Jennifer Anniston.

GLENN: Jennifer Anniston and I'm pretty sure it was that episode where they said, you know, marriage isn't forever. It's just forever how long we love each other. And she said, oh, that is so good, that is so enlightened. No, that's not what marriage is. That's going steady. And, you know, I don't think Oprah appreciates marriage. I don't know if she's I shouldn't say that she's anti marriage but she doesn't, she doesn't hold it, I think, in the highest regard for herself.

PAT: Well, apparently not. She's been with this Stedman guy for how long and I guess they are living together now and nobody seems to know that. But they are living together now and they're not married and apparently there's no plans for that to ever happen. So

GLENN: Right. So I don't know what her deal is with marriage.

PAT: I don't, either.

GLENN: But that's the thing that you should be asking: What's your deal with marriage.

PAT: And that's why that's another reason that, you know, people start the rumors that maybe he's gay, maybe she's gay, maybe they're all. It's just weird

GLENN: This is really com and I'm a conspiracy theorist. That's really complex, isn't it? For what? She cares at this point? Maybe, you could say that maybe 15 years ago when she was still up and coming and Ellen and everybody hadn't come out of the closet and said, yeah, hello. I mean, there's no stigma to it.

PAT: What a shock that was with Ellen, too. I was

GLENN: I was floored.

PAT: I was blown away! What!

GLENN: I was floored. Do not

PAT: Ellen?

GLENN: Do not tell me about Liberace. Don't do it. Don't tell me about Liberace.

PAT: I don't even know anything about Liberace. What would I tell you about Liberace?

GLENN: Good. I'm glad.

PAT: I mean

GLENN: I mean, it's ridiculous.

PAT: That guy was a chick magnet.

GLENN: I don't

PAT: I'm pretty sure.

GLENN: I'm not going to tell you anything about Liberace, but all right. So you know, I guess the story is on Oprah is she's reinventing herself and she's leaving her show and she's starting her own network, and she's taking a big risk, you know, for somebody who's made 80, $80 million a year for the last 15 years. She's really

PAT: Putting it all out there.

GLENN: She's putting it all out on the line. You know, she

PAT: Because look, if you have to get by on that the rest of your life, what

GLENN: I don't know how she does it.

PAT: I don't know.

GLENN: I don't know how she well, she will probably maybe, you know, she may have to take the bus to work. She may have to take the bus to work.

PAT: I hate to see that happen. Possible.

GLENN: Good news. You're not going to have to hate that because it's not going to happen.

PAT: Good. Whew. That was a close up with.

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."

Glenn Beck has had enough of exposing scandal after scandal, just to have everyone look the other way: Benghazi, Hillary Clinton's emails, Joe and Hunter Biden's dealings in Ukraine and China … the list goes on, but no consequences are paid. Now, the media have called the election for Joe Biden and insist no one can question it. But for many of the more than 71 million people who voted for President Trump, our search for the truth isn't over yet.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn called out the left's long list of alleged corruption that has gone unchecked and stressed that Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process of investigating the multiple allegations of election fraud to ensure our voting systems are fair.

"I don't know about you, but I'm tired. I am worn out. I am fed up!" Glenn said during his opening monologue. "I've had enough. I am tired of exposing corruption, doing our homework, even going overseas and having documents translated to make sure they're exactly right, [and] presenting the evidence ... except, once we expose it, nothing happens. Nobody goes to jail. Nobody pays for a damn thing any more!"
