Glenn Beck: Lemonade?




RELATED STORY


Alcohol: 5%; common sense: 0

GLENN:  888-727-BECK, 888-727-BECK.  You know, can I just change the subject just for a second to, have you heard the story about the guy who bought the Mike's Hard lemonade for his kid?

STU:  I've seen the headline but I don't know anything about it.p>

GLENN:  I don't have the -- I don't know what ballpark it was and I don't know the age of the kid.  Can you look that up for me?

STU:  Sure.

GLENN:  But the dad went in, he went with this kid to this ballpark.

STU:  Which ballpark was it?

GLENN:  I don't know the ballpark.  That's why I asked could you --

STU:  That's not important.  How old was the kid?  Was it an older kid?

DAN:  He was probably 21.

GLENN:  The only facts of the story I don't have, how old -- Sarah, could you look up how old the kid was and what the ballpark was?

DAN:  Do you at least know what year the kid was born in?

STU:  What company sponsors the ballpark, if you can tell me that.

GLENN:  I have no idea.

DAN:  What's the home team of the ballpark?

GLENN:  Don't know.  Don't know.  Thank you, though.  Thank you.  You've made it delightful to first do no harm to the kid.

STU:  Was the kid of drinking age?  At least we know that.

GLENN:  No, he wasn't of drinking age.  So the dad takes a kid and let's just imagine that he's 7.

STU:  He is 7.

GLENN:  How do you know he's 7?

STU:  I looked it up.  When you brought this story to the table without any of the facts that we needed, I decided to do some research of my own.  He's 7 years old, Comerica Park, Detroit.

GLENN:  Why don't you tell the story, Stu.

STU:  It's funny because this guy brings his --

GLENN:  You are not to tell the story!  So this 7-year-old kid goes to the ballpark with his dad and they walk up to, you know, where you buy, you know, lemonade and hot dogs and everything else and I saw the sign.  The sign just says, Mike's Lemonade.  So the dad looks at his son and says, you want some lemonade?  Kid says yeah.  Kid goes, buys two lemonades, goes back to their seats.  They are sitting in the seats.

STU:  Wait.  How much did he buy the lemonade for?

GLENN:  I'm going to say $6.

STU:  $7.  So he goes back to his seat in Comerica Park with his 7-year-old son that he bought lemonade for, for $7, and?

GLENN:  So they're sitting there in their seats and they're just drinking the lemonade and pretty soon, I believe it was an usher or a security guard.  Who the hell was it that came up to him, Stu?

STU:  You don't know?

GLENN:  Oh, it's not in your story, huh?

STU:  I haven't got that far.

GLENN:  So anyway, somebody comes up to him and says, excuse me, sir, is your kid drinking?  And the guy says, yeah.  Because he's thinking, yes, he's drinking liquid.

STU:  Security guard, Glenn.

GLENN:  Thank you.

STU:  Comerica Park.

GLENN:  Thank you.  So he said, so is your kid drinking?  And he says, yeah.  He said, do you realize that's alcoholic?  And he says, oh, my gosh, I had no idea.  Takes it away from his son.  Well, they arrest him.  Now here's the rest of the story.  They've taken the son away from the father because that's the law.  He was giving his son alcohol.  This is where common sense has disappeared in America.  We no longer -- we know what the right thing to do is but we either choose not to do it or we don't allow common sense to happen anymore.  We don't allow anything to -- we can't -- God forbid we can't.  We have to now take the son away from the father.

I saw the father on television crying his eyes out.  The guy had no idea.  I mean, don't you think this is a little unreasonable?  I mean, I get it, I'm sorry, I don't know.  It's like, I don't drink Mike's Hard Lemonade.  It said lemonade on the sign.

STU:  They have a picture of the sign.  It just says Mike's Lemonade.

GLENN:  And let me tell you something, I have been dumb as a box of rocks but I've been out of the alcohol industry for a long time.  I mean, I always joke about this.  I mean, before -- you know, before they had, like, really cool things to drink when it was -- I mean, I was just -- I'm like a cowboy.  When I was drinking, it was just whiskey, give me whiskey.  Now they got all these different flavors and, you know, Mike's Hard Lemonade.  My gosh, I would have been having Mike's Hard Lemonade at 4:00 a.m. in the morning, this is fantastic stuff.  I've been out of it for a while.  First time I saw Mike's Hard Lemonade, no idea.  No idea.  Picked it up in a store, was going to buy it and drink it and somebody who was with me said, got something to tell me, Glenn?  I'm like, no.  What?  "I don't think you want that."  I said, lemonade?  I don't know.  It sounds good.  Have you ever had it?  I don't know.  It's Mike's.  And he's like, yeah, it's got booze in it.  I'm like, oh, hang on, let me get a six-pack.  I had no idea.  Especially if the sign -- you know what tipped me off?  I did look at it and go, oh, Hard Lemonade, I guess that should have clicked.  But I don't know.  If the sign just said Mike's Lemonade, who's Mike?  I don't know.  I thought he was the guy with the hot dog.  I don't know, wearing the paper hat.  Who's Mike?  Must have been good.  It's got his name on it, Mike.  Thought it was lemonade with some credibility.

STU:  You thought Mike was giving a testimonial about his lemonade?

GLENN:  It's like, we go to the ballpark here at where?

STU:  Comerica Park.

GLENN:  Comerica Park's known for Mike and his lemonade.  Been happening here since the stadium was built.

STU:  What section did it happen in, Glenn, by the way, this whole incident?  Do you know?  That's an important detail to -- Section 116.

GLENN:  That's not the way I roll, Stu, just not the way I roll.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

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."
