Glenn Beck: Obama on The View w/ bonus Insider audio

GLENN: We're just replaying Obama's trip to The View today where, you know, I jokingly said, you know, you want hard questions to be asked, you go right to the women of The View. And I said jokingly, the question will be how sexy -- "Obama, tell us how sexy are you. What makes you so darn sexy." Dan just said to me in the break that you can't believe how right you are. Do you have the audio, Dan?

DAN: Yes, we do.

VOICE: I understand that you're related to Brad Pitt some way?

SENATOR OBAMA: Yeah.

VOICE: How are you related to Brad Pitt?

SENATOR OBAMA: I guess we are ninth cousins removed or something? You got the better looking side of the gene pool.

VOICE: I was saying just before you came up, maybe we shouldn't say this but, do we say it? We thought you are very sexy looking. Anyway, enough of that.

GLENN: Well, there it is. There it is. So Obama's sexy. Unbelievable. So how did he answer the question here from Elizabeth Hasselbeck saying, with a stunned audience in silence, and I'll guarantee no matter what he says, he gets a big round of applause. But stunned in silence after her question. They said, you know, should we say it? Yes, girlfriend, we should say it, then a pause. We just want to know, we just want to know is your right foot bigger than your left foot? Applause. Then Elizabeth decides to ask something, you know, sincere and weighty: How can you sit in this pew for 20 years? You didn't know this guy was a racist? You don't know he was going to say these things? Listen to her question, then listen to his answer.

HASSELBECK: When I hear that, when I go back to that time and when I hear you talk about America, I guess many people are concerned and myself being one of them that you speak about one America.

SENATOR OBAMA: Right.

HASSELBECK: But the person who you chose time and time again to be your spiritual advisor when he says and characterizes the USA as you said wrongly U.S. of KKKA that the chickens were coming home to roost after 9/11 suggesting that we got what we deserved. You told them again to, you know, marry you, to baptize your children, you named a book after one of his speeches. For 20 years would you think that somehow suggested that that is a lack of judgment on the man? You had no idea, you never heard about these sermons?

SENATOR OBAMA: These particular ones that you mentioned I haven't heard but like I said, this is over the course of 20 years. What you've been seeing is a snippet of a man. Imagine if somebody compiles the five stupidest things you had ever said and put them in a 30-second loop that was played every day for two weeks. If I --

HASSELBECK: It's on a DVD at the church.

SENATOR OBAMA: I didn't purchase the DVDs and I didn't read the church bulletins. Here's my point. The vision at the convention, that's ingrained in me. My mother was white, my father was black, I had a sister who's Indonesian, who's married to a Chinese Canadian.

VOICE: Spicy in your family.

VOICE: Very spicy.

SENATOR OBAMA: So that embodied the vision of America that I believe in deeply. Now, part of that American experience is the racial divisions that we've dealt with, and my intention in that speech in Boston when I talked about there is no black America or white America, it was aspirational. It wasn't suggesting that we don't have real divisions and that we don't have real problems and, you know, ironically the most memorable phrase from that speech, the Audacity of Hope, I drew from one of Reverend Wright's sermons and what it shows is that people are mixes of good and bad. I saw mostly the good. There were some things, as I said, that I disagreed with him on. But I didn't -- I didn't see some of the things that were said that I would have taken offense to.

HASSELBECK: But you said before his sermons can get a little rough.

SENATOR OBAMA: Can get controversial or rough, absolutely. But that to me is -- you know, I've got all kinds of friends across the political spectrum and part of what my role if my politics has tried to have been is to get people who don't normally listening to each other, talk to each other, who say crazy things, who are offended by each other, for me to understand them and maybe help them understand each other.

VOICE: That sounds like The View sometimes, huh?

GLENN: Oh, come on! This is absolutely outrageous! This is outrageous. He has a minister that he's known for 20 years, paid him $27,000 a year. You've got all these liberals who are lining up behind him. He says it's the U.S. of KKKA, that white man is the problem, that on 9/11 he says the Sunday after 9/11: Obama, where were you? You weren't at church the Sunday after 9/11? You were the only one not at church the Sunday after 9/11? Really? Sunday after 9/11 he says America got a wake-up call. And he didn't mean it like, you got a wake-up call like, hey, boy, the things are going on. White America got a wake-up call. The question was doesn't this say something about your judgment. He hasn't answered that. Unless we're supposed to take it from the rest of his answer, how he did answer it. He says he likes to take people and see that there's good and bad, that race and racial problems are part of the dynamics here in America. And you can see the good and the bad. Dan, do you have his statement on what he said about Don Imus?

STU: We can pull it up here in a second.

GLENN: This is absolutely outrageous that America is allowing him to get away with this. And for no other reason than consistency. You are either for it all the time or against it all the time. You know what? Makes me want to think that, wow, we can be reasonable people. Because I'm listening to what he's saying and I'm thinking to myself, wow, okay, we can have a reasonable dialogue about race. Wouldn't that be nice? The "Audacity of Hope", to be able to say that. But there's a double standard, I guarantee you. This is not a prediction. This is a promise. I guarantee you you will be called a racist before all is said and done, before November because of your views of his policies. I guarantee it.

It is nice to hope. It's great to have audacity, to be able to hope, that people will see that there are good parts of you and bad parts of you, things that make you say, if I may quote him, say crazy things. But it ain't gonna happen, brother. It ain't gonna happen. They are dismissing these crazy things and they won't dismiss them on the other side. Do you have the audio? Go ahead. Play -- this is what he said. Remember he knows lots of people that he disagrees with. Listen to this.

VOICE: Let me ask you pointedly. Do you think he should be fired?

SENATOR OBAMA: I don't think MSNBC should be carrying the kinds of hateful remarks that Imus uttered the other day and he has a track record of making those kinds of remarks. Look, I've got two daughters who are African-American, gorgeous, tall and I hope at some point are interested enough in sports that they get athletic scholarships.

VOICE: So he should be off the air, off of MSNBC and off of CBS, off the air completely in your judgment?

SENATOR OBAMA: Ultimately you guys are going to have to make that view. He would not be working for me.

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
