On the radio program Tuesday, Glenn Beck talked about how Democrat politicians and the mainstream media are reaching unprecedented levels of hypocrisy that has become so absurd, they are damaging our society, our country, and our president's standing in the world.
"I want to play a couple of things that I find absolutely reprehensible," Glenn said. "First, let's start with death threats."
Glenn played an audio clip of CNN senior political analyst David Gergen commenting on President Donald Trump's tweet about the whistleblower whose complaint has led to the current impeachment inquiry.
"There is a very good chance the name of this whistle-blower will get out one way or the other, in the next two weeks. If somebody goes after him, the blood will be on the hands of the president," Gergen can be heard saying in the clip.
"So, is [Gergen] accusing the president of wanting to kill the whistle-blower ... that, if this president finds out who this whistle-blower is ... he's going to kill him?" asked Glenn. "Or, no, it will be one of [Trump's] supporters that tries to kill the whistle-blower? Which is it, and is that reasonable to say at this point? Especially in an atmosphere where apparently Michael Che and NBC can get away with this 'joke'."
Glenn played a video clip of "Saturday Night Live" comedian, Michael Che, talking about the impeachment threat against the president.
"When they said Trump was getting impeached, I immediately thought, 'Great, Trump is fired. Let's get drunk. But they were like, 'No, he's just being impeached, but he ain't exactly peached yet. It will still take another year or so.' And I'm like, well, damn, that sucks. Let's get drunk," said Che. "I mean, the presidency is only a four-year job, but it feels like it's taking five years to just fire his a**. It's frustrating. You know, I bet somebody explained how long impeachment takes to John Wilkes Booth, and he was like, "Okay, well, where's he at right now?'"
"Was that a threat?" Glenn asked, adding that "NBC doesn't have a problem with it."
"Do you remember how the press and Hillary [Clinton] were so offended that the president, in his campaign, could have people chanting 'lock her up,' how horrible that was? And how unpresidential that was? And for him to tolerate it or laugh at it, was the biggest scandal? Let me play last night with Steven Colbert," he said to introduce the next clip.
"Is it time to, dare I say, lock him up, lock him up?" CBS late-night host, Stephen Colbert, asked failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton during his show Monday night.
"So it's funny now, to say that?" said Glenn.
"Why is no one in the press interested in what the damage is to the republic?" he added. "It damages the president. But it also damages the republic. It damages the Constitution. It damages society. It damages the standing of this president in the world. This has not been done before. This is all new territory."
