Juno: Safe for Dads?

GLENN: I almost went to, well, in my mind I almost went to that, what's that movie? Juno?

STU: Yeah, yeah, Juno.

GLENN: I was warned.

STU: Really?

GLENN: He said it's the Schindler's List for dads. I said, what? He said, it's the Schindler's List for dads. He said, I've got a couple of daughters. One of them just went to college. The other one is like 16, you know. They're, you know, in the midst of being teenage girls, and he said, my wife, all she said during the whole movie, honey, do you need to leave? He said, I sat there and I bawled my eyes out. He said, the whole time I'm just crying my eyes out watching this. He said, no dad should ever see that.

STU: Why? In what way?

GLENN: Because it's about a daughter who's making mistakes with her life and, you know, how she's going through so much pain, and I got news for you. As a dad of three daughters I don't want to see any movies about dads and daughters. No, I'm serious. Dads and daughters. I can't do it.

STU: If that's what you are qualification, then yes, you shouldn't see it because that is partially what it's about but I would say that it's my favorite movie of all of last year. I saw it, it was trendy and everything else. It's a fantastic movie.

GLENN: I have heard so many good stories about that movie and so many people say, oh, Glenn, you have got to see... I've had so much mail: Oh, Glenn, you've got to see this, this is fantastic. I can't do it.

STU: I really think you would like it. A lot of people --

GLENN: I wanted to see Schindler's List because I thought it was an important movie to go see, it was an important movie to go see and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. Stu, they asked me to leave.

STU: Because you were crying so loud?

GLENN: I was crying so hard. They really did. It was all over and I sat there and I was paralyzed, I just was crying so hard and they said, sir, sir, the other audience is waiting to come, you've got to leave.

STU: We have to mop this aisle now.

GLENN: Mop, mop on aisle 10. And so I left but I couldn't get past the lobby and I sat down in the lobby and I cried, and I'll never forget. One guy who was standing in line, he looked at my wife and he said, Schindler's List? And she said, uh-huh. And he looked at his wife and says, if that's what this movie does to you, I'm not going.

STU: I mean, I don't know that you're the best judge of crying in movies in the world, but I mean, certainly Schindler's List qualified for that.

GLENN: But you know what, I think when you have, I think when you have daughters, the whole world changes.

STU: Sure, Glenn. But Juno is a comedy. It's a funny movie about a situation.

GLENN: No, thinking about teenage girls.

STU: You would think it was really funny.

GLENN: There's not a damn thing funny about teenage girls.

STU: I will say, though, Glenn, that a lot of people are saying, oh, it's great on the Republican side or the right side because it's got, you know, pro life message.

GLENN: Yeah. I don't want to go see a message movie.

STU: It's even better than that, Glenn. I don't think it has any message. It's just a frickin' funny movie.

GLENN: Throwing everything out, I only want to hear from dads with teenage daughters that aren't frickin' perfect. You know, the ones that you're laying awake at night going, oh, jeez, oh, jeez, oh, jeez, they're going to be living in a rat infested hell hole, oh, no (crying.) I want to hear from those guys, freak jury right now.

STU: Really?

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: All right, freak jury, what's the question?

GLENN: Do you want to see as a dad -- maybe it's just me, a crybaby. As a dad do you want to see a movie about, is there a dad in it that's like, no, honey, please, don't, no, hon, no.

STU: Well, no. The dad is -- he's not a main character in the movie, first of all, and it's a comedy. So I mean, you know, it's -- I don't know that there's some secret message you're supposed to get out of it. It's just funny and --

GLENN: It's not a secret message. I'm not talking about a secret message. I'm just talking about, you know --

STU: I would classify the father as, I think at one point he says -- I expected it to be hard drugs. Like, I didn't expect pregnancy. I expected hard drugs or something similar to that. You know, it's not like this deep thing but it was -- I mean, it was great. You would love it. You would love that movie, Glenn. It's right down your alley.

GLENN: I was just with somebody last night and he said, don't do that.

STU: You've got to hear from people who have seen it, though.

GLENN: He saw it. No, no, he saw it.

STU: One guy, for the freak jury I'm saying you need to hear from people who have actually seen it.

GLENN: If you did see it, you have to be somebody who's on -- teenage years with your daughters and on the edge. I'm on the edge, man! They're fine. I'm on the edge! Just as a dad, your mind, just, it goes crazy. Oh, it's a nightmare.

I told you last week, what was it, last week? I realized I'm the dumbest guy in America. I just figured it out. Parenting never ends! It goes on and on and on! I joined this stupid faith that says it goes on for all eternity. What! Stop it! I'm not strong enough. Are you kidding me? Oh, jeez. My daughter coming to me and saying, dad, I've got a problem. In 10,000 years? No thank you!

So let's see if I'm alone. Let's see if there's a dad out there that's struggling with just holding -- because teenage years, insanity. And you know what? I don't know because I don't have a teenage boy and maybe it's not. Adam, you have a teenage -- you have teenage boys. You know. Any huge difference? Is there? With a guy, with a teenage boy you're like, whatever. Oh, he's sleeping under a car in the Bronx, whatever. Yeah, it's his choice. Just, there's something innate in -- oh, I know, call me sexist. Something innate where in a dad where, you know, happens to your son? Well, it's his choice, he's strong, he can go for it. But as a girl, as your daughter you still feel responsible to make sure that she's okay. And every little thing because she's your little princess. She's the one. There's something that pierces your heart the minute you hold that little baby in your arms and you are like, I am your protector, I will take care of you, I will make sure. And then when she gets out, the hardest thing ever is freedom of choice. I say we take freedom of choice away. I say -- at least for all kids. No choices.

The hardest thing is, is to actually come to the place -- another guy and I were talking over the weekend. He said that -- he said, Glenn, the biggest thing I need to tell her, he said, is fear. He said, you're fearless. And I said, no, I'm stupid and maybe too cavalier. He said, well, actually that's true, but you're fearless. I said, I need to conquer fear. And I said, you know what it is? You have to be prepared to lose and not -- and just know that in the end you've done everything you could; you couldn't do anymore. So you are not trying to rig the outcome. You just have to be prepared to lose. And when it comes to kids, you just have to be prepared that you can sleep at night because you did -- you're not being kept up at night for guilt because you didn't prepare them. You're just being kept up at night because you're like, oh, jeez, they're making all these wrong decisions, but it's their decision. And I got enough of it. I just don't need to see it in, you know, the movie theater. But maybe it's just me that's a crybaby when it comes to my daughters, that I look at it and, I don't need this, I could do this in real life. Oh, look, the little teenage daughters going away and possibly wrecking her life. Oh, this looks like a funny movie! Let me go to -- do we have a freak jury?

Protests following the fatal police shooting of Walter Wallace Jr quickly devolved into violence, rioting, and looting in Philadelphia, and BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer was there to document what the mainstream media won't. But while filming the carnage inside a Five Below on Tuesday, Elijah was surrounded and attacked by looters.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to detail his experience and to explain why mainstream media efforts to downplay the violence just show that independent media has never been more important.

"Unfortunately, [the attack] escalated from one person to about a dozen very quickly," Elijah explained. "I'm actually really happy to be alive. Because in that same shopping center, right there, there was a 15-year-old girl who was shot, according to reports. And I heard multiple gunshots throughout the night. Another individual is reported to have heard a gunshot as well, so we try to confirm. I watched people get pummeled beyond belief."

Glenn asked Elijah to respond to mainstream media claims that conservatives are exaggerating the looting and violence in Philadelphia.

"It's so funny to hear people that aren't there try to counter what we're reporting," Elijah replied.

In the final days before the 2020 election, President Donald Trump is gaining among black voters, particularly men, because his record of accomplishments "speaks for itself" and the "façade" that President Trump is a racist "just doesn't ring true," argued sports columnist Jason Whitlock on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday.

Jason, who recently interviewed the president at the White House for OutKick.com, shared his thoughts on why he believes many black Americans — notably celebrities such as Kanye West, Ice Cube, and 50 Cent — are breaking from the "façade" that President Trump is a "flaming racist."

"I really believe the facts are starting to speak for themselves, and that Donald Trump's record of accomplishments, particularly as it relates to African Americans, speaks for itself," Jason told Glenn. "He actually has a record to stand on, unlike even Barack Obama. When [Obama] was president, I don't think he had much of a record to stand on, in terms of, 'Hey, what did he actually deliver for African Americans?' President Trump has things he can stand on and, you know, beyond that I think black people understand when he starts talking about black unemployment rate. And America's unemployment rate. And then, when you add in for black men, the façade we've been putting on [President Trump] … you know, this whole thing that he's some flaming racist, it just doesn't ring true."

Jason suggested that Trump's fearlessness, unabashed masculinity, and record of keeping his promises resonates with men in the black community. He also weighed in on how media and social media's bias plays a huge role in convincing people to hate President Trump while ignoring Antifa and others on the Left.

"I keep explaining to people, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, they're some of the most secular places on earth. And we've reduced everyone to a tweet, that we disagree with," he added.

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:
