The midterms proved at least one thing, voters couldn't care less about celebrity endorsements

The great, wonderful Beyoncé wants you to know that she can be whatever she wants, whenever she wants. Sure, she's a musician—and, if you count 22 Grammys and 63 Grammy nominations, it's fair to say that she is considered good—although, who's to say how much she actually writes or performs, besides singing and occasionally rapping. But Beyoncé wants you to know that she is so much more.

Beyoncé can also be an academic. No Ph.D. or prior research needed. If she wants to be an academic—voila!—it is done. A few years ago—around the time that she appeared on an award show in gilded lingerie in front of a sign that said FEMINIST—Beyonce wrote an academic paper titled "Gender Equality is a Myth!" (Yes, she included an exclamation point! Gasp!) Note that Beyoncé happens to be one of the most privileged people on the face of the earth. Which brings me to my point.

One of the many roles that Beyoncé has awarded herself is political activist. She prances around the world spouting off nonsense like she's a professor of political science or a longtime politician. And, believe me, her opinions matter more than yours—to her, at least, all of which is part of the reason a recent poll determined Beyoncé the "Most Divisive Celebrity in the Country."

Actors and musicians have always done this weird thing where they interpret their fame to be a malleable, god-like expertise. Because people, in their minds, worship them for their abilities as an actor or musician they assume that they possess unlimited knowledge and that their opinions matter more than anyone else's. We are all quite familiar with it.

Leading up to the midterms, Comedy Central poked fun at this:


#ShouldWeVote? youtu.be


The justice, now, is that people have come to see through the cloud of smugness coming from celebrities. This week's elections proved that people are no longer swayed by celebrities' endorsements. Taylor Swift's fawning over Democratic Gov. Phil Bredesen wasn't enough to win him the spot. The same thing happened to candidates endorsed by Dave Chappelle, Oprah Winfrey, Will Ferrell, Rhianna, Puff Daddy, and the scores of Hollywood elite who championed Beto—yeah, it was a bit odd that so many Hollywood actors were fawning over a candidate in a Texas election.

Conservative strategist Chris Barron told Fox News:

Last night, the American voters–once again—told Hollywood that they simply don't care what they think. All across the country, Hollywood darlings were rejected by the voters.

It's almost as if being a celebrity doesn't automatically instill you with the secrets of existence. I doubt the message will get through to celebrities, though. I'm sure you noticed: They tend to be a bit lacking in self-awareness and humility.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
