'Most asinine statement': CNN cohorts Don Lemon, Chris Cuomo rip Trump's 'cheerleader' comment — but here's the CONTEXT

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck exposed two recent examples of the left-wing media's extreme case of "Trump derangement syndrome," even during a time of crisis when accurate information is more critical to Americans than ever.

"Trump derangement syndrome doesn't go far enough," Glenn said to describe the media's hatred for President Donald Trump. "This is truly a deep, mental illness. It really is. Because they want him to fail so badly, they will set the entire nation on fire. It's almost as if they want us at each other's throat at this time of pandemic, instead of coming together."

On Tuesday, CNN colleagues Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo criticized the president's leadership, accusing him of trying to downplay the threat of the coronavirus pandemic by calling himself a "cheerleader for this country" during a White House briefing earlier that day.

Cuomo called the president's statement "the most asinine statement of leadership I have ever heard."

But the clip cut from President Trump's speech selectively edited out his description all the controversial steps he's taken so far to protect American's during this pandemic, as Glenn demonstrates by playing an unedited version of the video. (See the clip from the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" below.)

Then there was CBS News, who shamelessly promoted a video of an ICU nurse crying as she described her decision to quit because the hospital didn't have N95 masks for workers treating COVID-19 patients. As it turns out, the nurse, who goes by Imaris on social media, had not been an employee at the hospital for over a year. Imaris also publicly posted on Facebook that she suffers from anxiety and bi-polar depression, and feels "trigger[ed]" by information about the coronavirus.

"The media should be ashamed of itself," Glenn asserted. "Now, [former DNC chair] Howard Dean is saying he's boycotting MSNBC until the network stops airing the Trump pressers ... the Democrats want them to stop. Why? Because they're effective. It's not because of any reason other than politics, not because there's no information -- there's plenty of information. People are at home, and they want to know what the truth is."

On Friday, Mercury One hosted the 2022 ProFamily Legislators Conference at The American Journey Experience. Glenn Beck shared this wisdom with legislators from all across our nation. We must be on God’s side.

Winston Marshall assumed that he would be playing banjo with Mumford & Sons well into his 60s, but one tweet — simply recommending Andy Ngo's book — was all it took for the woke mob to attack. At first, Winston apologized, saying he "was certainly open to not understanding the full picture." But after doing some research, not to mention a whole lot of soul-searching, his conscience "really started to bother" him.

On the latest episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," Winston opened up about the entire scandal, what he discovered in the wake of his cancellation, and why he's decided to put truth over career.

"I looked deeper and deeper into the topic, and I realized I hadn't been wrong [when] I'd called the author brave," Winston said of Ngo. "Not only was he brave, he'd been attacked by Antifa mobs in Oregon, and he was then attacked again ... he's unquestionably brave. And so my conscience really started to bother me ... I felt like I was in some way excusing the behavior of Antifa by apologizing for criticizing it. Which then made me feel, well, then I'm as bad as the problem because I'm sort of agreeing that it doesn't exist," he added.

"Another point, by the way, that I found it very frustrating, was that that left-wing media in this country and in my country don't even talk about [Antifa]. We can all see this footage. We see it online," Winston continued. "But they don't talk about it, and that's part of my, I think, interest initially in tweeting about Andy's book. Because I think people need to see what's going on, and it's a blind spot there. ... CNN and MSNBC, they don't cover it. Biden in his presidential election said it was just 'an idea' that didn't exist. I mean, did he not see the courthouse in Oregon being burnt down?"

FBI whistleblower Steve Friend exposed the FBI for its handling of the investigation into the January 6 riot — and paid the price. Friend joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to describe the series of events that eventually led him not only to leave the FBI, but to speak out against potential abuses within the department as well. The crux of his story began with cases concerning the January 6, 2021, riot and one arrest warrant that he refused to take part in.


Friend also joined Glenn on his "Targets of Tyranny" special to explain why he believed the January 6 cases were run by Washington, D.C., and how the agency's handling of the "J6" investigations has been so "unusual" that he says he's "never" seen anything even close to this before.
