Skip to comments.‘This is heroic’: Glenn Beck applauds Penn Jillette’s remarks on alleged Trump ‘Apprentice’ tapes
Posted on 08/15/2018 2:09:31 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Former Celebrity Apprentice star Penn Jillette had the perfect opportunity to smear President Donald Trump in a recent Vulture interview titled, In Conversation: Penn Jillette Talking magic, truth, and Trumps alleged Apprentice Tapes.
As the name implies, the interview was, by and large, a probe for damaging information about Donald Trump, namely Omarosa Manigault-Newmans claim that there is a tape of him using the N-word on Celebrity Apprentice.
As Glenn noted on Wednesdays episode of The Glenn Beck Radio Program, Jillette is no fan of Trump. And yet, after saying he was in the room and had overheard Trump saying damaging things, Jillette refused to elaborate on exactly what hed heard. He called himself an unreliable narrator, adding, I guarantee you that I will get details wrong.
Heres an excerpt from the interview, which you can read in full here.
If Donald Trump had not become president, I would tell you all the stories. But the stakes are now high and I am an unreliable narrator. What I do, as much as anything, is Im a storyteller. And storytellers are liars. So I can emotionally tell you things that happened racially, sexually, and that showed stupidity and lack of compassion when I was in the room with Donald Trump and I guarantee you that I will get details wrong. I would not feel comfortable talking about what I felt I saw in that room.
I will tell you things, but I will very conscientiously not give you quotations because I believe that would be morally wrong, he added. Im not trying to protect myself. This really is a moral thing.
I think this is heroic, Glenn said. Heres a guy when the rest of the world is taking things out of context or ignoring (ah, Chris Cuomo,) ignoring things about people who should not be ignored (Antifa,) but because they are the enemy of your enemy, you make them your friend heres a guy who says I dont want any part of this. Yes, I saw things, but I interpret things emotionally and I can tell you what I felt but I cant tell you what he said because I dont know if Ill remember it right.'

Glenn Beck is still around? Still crying?
Beck’ train derailed a long time ago. Has not been put back on the tracks.
“And yet, after saying he was in the room and had overheard Trump saying damaging things,
Prove it. Unless you you can magically prove it by taking that tape out of your ass..
He also dropped the price $300k on his Dallas home yesterday.
Has an $11,000 property tax bill coming due in January.
was the only sane rational comment about it I could find. The rest is the usual hysteric leftist ad homine drivel
Penn does Bulls_ _ _!
We know what Penn Jillette said, but Teller had no comment...
Penn is trying to look so noble.. He is actually condemning President Trump while saying he will not.
He’s implying Trump said certain damaging things, but is unwilling to say what they were. Why is he holding back? He would be well paid for any dirt he could provide. This suggests to me that he doesn’t really have anything.
Glenn Beck applauds Penn Jillettes remarks....
LOONS on parade. What a pair of Losers.
I think Penn Gillette is noble here. People say things when they believe they are amongst friends. WE ALL DO. And remember, this was before he had political aspiration. It is amoral to take something someone said years ago in a certain context and relay it in the context of today. I commend him.
“So I can emotionally tell you things that happened racially, sexually, and that showed stupidity and lack of compassion when I was in the room with Donald Trump...”
I DON’T CARE. I voted for a competent, pro-American capitalist, and so far that’s what I’ve gotten.
Beck went off the rails years ago.
Is he still on the air?
You’re right. Very wimpy and typical method of a person trying to sound “moral” while having no moral code.
Penn thinks his deceptiveness is intelligent, but it’s nothing more than classic passive aggressive behavior.
“Has an $11,000 property tax bill coming due in January.”
I live in Texas, my property tax is $11,000, for a 2400 sq ft home and 10,500 sq ft lot. Are you sure you got the number right in your post?
Scrolling down on that Realtor link, it says 2017 property taxes were over $110,000.
At age 84, I do not know of anyone who has noticed
the N-word at some time. Especially in ethnic humor.
Sharp, cutting implements, like a knife, can hurt me.
Sharp, cutting words cannot unless I agree with
the slur or putdown.
I am thankful for my rational behavior training.
