The 'Kim Summit' finally happened, just not the one you were thinking of

The 'Kim Summit' finally happened! Ok, maybe it's not who we expected, but there was a Kim at the White House yesterday and policy was being discussed! I'm talking of course about Kim Kardashian and her meeting with the president regarding prison reform. That just might have been the hardest sentence I've ever had to say while keeping a straight face.

Is this ridiculous? Um, yeah… pretty much. We just had a reality TV star sit down in the Oval Office to have a serious conversation on prison reform policy… I'm talking about Kim not the president of course. She's the reality TV star I was referring to… OK so technically two reality TV stars sat down to talk policy, but you know what I'm talking about. Anyway, every president in the history of the United States executive office just rolled over in their graves… probably several times.

But I will say this. Sure this is ridiculous, but Kardashian's cause was admirable. Kim first got interested in prison reform after hearing about Alice Marie Johnson. The 63 year old grandmother was imprisoned for acting as an intermediary for drug pushers. There was no violence involved, but her sentence was brutal. She was given life in prison. This nonviolent grandma was handed the same sentence given to murderers and terrorists. Sure, she broke the law, but this hardly seems fair.

It's easy to see the humor in Kim Kardashian going to Washington (that's not a Frank Capra movie) but it's also legitimate to recognize the cause that brought her there.

Yesterday was just full of laughs. As I was trying to wrap my brain around this meeting, CNN's Jim Acosta wasn't having any of it. Acosta was irritated at Sarah Sanders for not answering one of his questions, so he went on with CNN's Brooke Baldwin to spew his own Kim Kardashian hot take. He said quote:

“Forget about the fact that Kim Kardashian is here at the White House today and what planet that is anything resembling normal because it's not. She shouldn't be here talking about prison reform."

Hmm, that's interesting. Isn't this the network that gives airtime - seemingly daily - to sixteen and seventeen year olds to talk about gun policy? Does that quote “resemble normal" to CNN and Jim Acosta? It never would have been in the past, but now I guess it's ok. What about the time CNN interviewed Stormy Daniels' lawyer 59 times in less than two months? Does that “resemble normal"?

We've come to expect the abnormal and unorthodox in this new era of politics. Nothing is predictable. The only institution in the country lately that's actually delivering anything predictable is the media. Week after week, day after day, the only thing predictable is their complete lack of consistency.

UPDATE: Here's how the conversation went on radio. Watch the video below.

The Kim Summit shows media hypocrisy

Kim Kardashian went to the White House to discuss prison reform with President Trump.

The conditions in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule — for Americans, allies, Christians, women and more — continue to deteriorate, and the people there continue to plead that we will not forget them. On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck gave an emotional update on current evacuation efforts, including the tragic story of one girl — an American passport holder — who was not rescued in time.

"I have a pit in my stomach like I haven't had in a while. What is happening in Afghanistan is both miraculous and horrendous," Glenn began. "What's going on right now one of the most amazing things I've ever personally witnessed — the evacuation of Americans, those [Afghans] who helped us, Christians that are dying, women that are under incredible conditions. I see things that I can't show you. I see the pleadings from people who are in safe houses, 'Please, don't forget us.' I see what they're being sent by the Taliban.

"If I die today, my entire life will have been worth it for what you have helped get done, in just the last three weeks. You have saved well over 5,000 people," he continued.

Fighting back tears, Glenn added, "I ask that you pray for those in the Middle East, that are in the midst of doing work, that a Moses-style miracle will happen. ... There are several people that are in dire need of medical care. Friday, we told you — along with the congressman from Oklahoma [Rep. Markwayne Mullin] who had just returned — [about] a father and two daughters that were blue passport Americans, and a mother who had a permanent residence, a Green Card. The daughter was very ill. And they thought, that if we couldn't get her out of there, that she would lose her legs. I got a call on Saturday morning, that we were too late, that she didn't lose her legs. She lost her life, waiting. There are now two Americans, instead of three."

Glenn showered his audience with gratitude, repeating that "well over 5000" lives have already been saved because of their incredible generosity, but lamented that there are still thousands more people yet to be saved.

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."
