GLENN: Well, thar she blows. There it is, Governor Spitzer. May we go back to just a few moments? Because the network turned off my microphone. I'm just saying. When I say the network, I mean Stu and Dan.

STU: And it was a brilliant decision by us because you couldn't stop the entire time.

GLENN: No, it wasn't. No, it wasn't. The people want to hear... I'm doing the people's work! Could we take it one more time with my microphone open?

STU: Yes, we can.

GLENN: Yeah. His wife looks like she hasn't slept in, oh, I don't know, a month.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: In the past few days I have begun to atone for my private failings with my wife Silda, my children.


GOVERNOR SPITZER: And my entire family.

GLENN: Right.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: The remorse I feel will always be with me.

GLENN: I'm sure.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: Words cannot describe how grateful I am for the love and compassion they have shown me.

GLENN: Sure.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: From those to whom much is given much is expected.

GLENN: Could we stop?

GOVERNOR SPITZER: I have been given much. The love of my family.


GOVERNOR SPITZER: The faith and trust of the people of New York. And the chance to lead this state.

GLENN: With really hot sex with hookers.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: I'm really sorry that I did not live up to what was expected of me.

GLENN: Stop. You didn't even come close to living up to what was expected. What was expected? Just to do a good job. Just to do a good job.

STU: I don't think that was expected. He's a politician. I think if you show up to work occasionally and not do anything illegal. How about that? Can we get that out of you?

GLENN: "I'm sorry I didn't live up to it but it was a high mountain to climb." I mean, you wanted me for four years not to have sex with hookers? What, are you crazy? Do you know how hard that is? They're hookers, man!

STU: They're --

GLENN: They're great!

STU: They're so good at it.

GLENN: I was doing investigations on them and I was putting them in jail and I'm like, what am I doing? They're great! Oh, I'm sorry I couldn't live up to your high standards.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: To every New Yorker.

GLENN: Yeah.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: And to all those who believed in what I tried to stand for, I sincerely apologize.

GLENN: Stop. You look so sincere now, too. Doesn't he look heartbroken?

STU: Really he --

GLENN: The guy has absolutely no emotion.

STU: Yeah. And you are right about his wife. His wife, A, looks like she hasn't slept in a month and, B, has not one little, like indication of emotion. She just looks absolutely stone faced.

GLENN: Are you kidding me? Stu.

STU: Yeah?

GLENN: You've got the perfect marriage.

STU: I would agree.

GLENN: That's the look of a woman who's ready to kill you! That's not -- there's no -- Dan, look at her!

DAN: You know, she gave up her own career she gave up. I forget what she was going to be, like a doctor or lawyer or something. She gave it up.

GLENN: Not a hooker.

DAN: Apparently that disappointed.

GLENN: If she would have become a hooker, everything -- it was a perfect relationship.

STU: Who is at fault here?

GLENN: She is! All right. I mean, Dan, you look at her face. There's emotion there, right? That's, "I'm going to kill you."

DAN: Well, let me put it this way.

GLENN: If it was legal in this city to carry a gun, you'd be a dead man.

DAN: If her eyes had heat-rays, his head would be melted off like the guy from Indiana Jones.

GLENN: She may be thinking to herself, heat-rays out of my eyes, heat-rays out of my eyes.

STU: I feel like it's a woman who wants to kill her husband but trying to play the part of --

GLENN: Oh, you know what it is. No, haven't you ever seen old movies?

STU: How old?

GLENN: Like in the 1940s and stuff.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: What he did is because, you know, he's the husband. So -- and she's playing the wife and so he had a doctor come over and say, I just think we should give her these pills, just give her these pills. It's going to be a tough time for a few days. And so she's probably all doped up. I saw it in the movies in the Forties. They gave her some sort of drugs that will make her not kill him.

STU: For the time being.

GLENN: Just a theory from a movie in the Forties. Go ahead, Dan.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: I look at my time as governor.

GLENN: Yeah.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: With a sense of what might have been.

GLENN: Stop. I could have gotten more hookers in!

GOVERNOR SPITZER: But I also know --


GOVERNOR SPITZER: That as a public servant I and the remarkable people with whom I worked have --

GLENN: Stop. We don't include the hookers here, do we? I mean, why not. They were incredible people, too.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: -- accomplished a great deal.

GLENN: Sure.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: There is much more to be done.

GLENN: Oh, boy.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: And I cannot allow my private failings to disrupt the people's work.

GLENN: Stop. The people. The people's work! There's just, I can't allow it. I'm doing it for you. I'm quitting for you. It has nothing to do with me. I'm quitting for you.

STU: I like that there is much more to be done and there is many more to be done. I think that's kind of like the general message we're getting here.

GLENN: I think so. I believe. I believe you're right.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: Over the course of my public life.


GOVERNOR SPITZER: I have insisted, I believe correctly, that people, regardless of their position or power --

GLENN: Stop. Eliot, from hereon out no more use of the word "Position." Just saying that we need to have a talk at language class with you. Not being politically correct but you will never be able to say many words without invoking laughter.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: -- responsibility for their conduct. I can and will --

GLENN: And will.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: -- ask no less of myself.

GLENN: Ask not.

GOVERNOR SPITZER: For this reason I am resigning from the office of governor at Lieutenant Governor Paterson's request, the resignation will be effective Monday, March 17, a date that he believes will permit an orderly transition. I go forward with the belief --


GOVERNOR SPITZER: -- as others have said that as human beings, our greatest glory consists not in never falling but in rising every time we fall.

GLENN: Okay, stop. Again not a phrase you should use, rising again. Probably -- I'm just, I'm just saying it might -- hey, you can put the instatabs and it happens right away. You know what I mean? Or you can take -- I mean, just get yourself to the hospital if you rise again and that happens to last more than four hours.


Blaze TV hosts Glenn Beck , Chad Prather, and Steven Crowder weighed-in with similar but different thoughts on the fascism associated with canceling Dr. Seuss.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Dr. Seuss books that have been cancelled due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity.

Chad Prather approached the issue from a comedic perspective, stating that "Dr. Seuss is dead and could not be reached for comment."

Steven Crowder explained that Dr. Seuss books were banned for being offensive and insensitive to some. So Steven decided to parody the six banned children's books with progressively titled and hilariously inappropriate versions.

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
