Media want Trump to #FireFauci — he isn't having it: 'Sorry fake news'

The press is doing every thing they can right now to pit Dr. Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, against President Donald Trump.

After Dr. Fauci said on CNN's "State of the Union" Sunday that lives could "obviously" have been saved if measures to slow the spread of coronavirus had been enacted earlier, the press was salivating at the thought that the president's top coronavirus adviser might be turning on him. So, when President Trump responded to a tweet that included the hashtag FireFauci, the media immediately pounced.

"They're trying desperately to make something out of that relationship so the president will fire him. And then they can all come down on him like a ton of bricks because he fired this expert that everybody respects medically. That's what they want so badly," said Pat Gray, who along with Stu Burguiere filled in for Glenn Beck on Tuesday's radio program.

Pat and Stu put the Fauci-Trump exchange into context, noting that Dr. Fauci was actually defending the Trump administration's response to the coronavirus outbreak, even as "State of the Union" host Jake Tapper tried repeatedly to get him to agree "we got started too late in the U.S."

"You know, it isn't as simple as that, Jake," replied Fauci. "I'm sorry. I disagree. To say this is all happening because we got started too late, obviously, if you look, could we have done something a little bit earlier that would have had an impact? Obviously. But where we are right now is the result of a number of factors: the size of the country; the homogeneity of the country [...] obviously it would have been nice if we had a better head start, but I don't think you could say that we are where we are right now because of one factor. It's very complicated, Jake."

Unsurprisingly, the media was quick to spin Dr. Fauci's "obviously" quote into an attack on President Trump, who re-tweeted a post that read, "Fauci is now saying that had Trump listened to the medical experts earlier he could've saved more lives. Fauci was telling people on February 29th that there was nothing to worry about and it posed no threat to the US public at large. Time to #FireFauci."

Asked why he re-tweeted the "#FireFauci" message, the president responded, "I retweeted somebody, I don't know." He also said , "I'm not firing him, I think he's a wonderful guy."

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.
