HOUSTON, TX – Debra Medina self destructs on the Glenn Beck show. Glenn Beck destructs right back.
Debra Medina appeared on the Glenn Beck radio program yesterday morning. Coming from reasonable obscurity she is now one of the front runners in the race to be Governor of Texas. Until yesterday when she admitted to believing that the government organized 9/11. Further prodded by Beck she proceeded to crack completely from the pressure. And Glenn Beck broke down right back!
On his radio program Beck asked Medina about rumors that she was a 9/11 Truther, a group that believes the government had a hand in organizing the World Trade Center attacks. Medina avoided the question at first, claiming that the signal was getting bad. She proceeded to make static noises into her phone. Beck reminded Medina that she was on a landline and everyone could tell she was making the noises with her mouth, and then asked her again. Medina avoided the question and started talking about her tax plans for Texas.
Beck, now angry and excited enough that he was sniffling between thoughts, asked her again if she believed there was any truth to the 9/11 rumors. “It’s just, I can’t” Medina responded. “THERE’S JUST TOO MANY QUESTIONS!!” “NOOO!!!” Glenn Beck was distraught to hear a conservative candidate he had endorsed admit to this. “How can we know?” Medina continued. “The movement raises good questions!! Footage could have been doctored! Witnesses could have been planted! The government could have been behind the whole thing!! WE DON’T KNOW!!” Medina continued to ramble nervously while Beck in turn continued to cry into his microphone about the loss of a candidate he had such high hopes for. He then alternated between crying and working himself into an angry froth. He and Medina were each continued reacting to the others unintelligible ramblings. They continued on like this for 14 minutes.
Debra Medina rose from political obscurity and rocketed to the forefront of the Governors race based on a grassroots conservative platform. Throughout Texas she had gained immense grassroots support based on her policies for lower taxes and replacing sex ed in schools with gun ownership and marksmanship. “Both help keep our little girls from getting pregnant, but my way takes the offensive!” Her official policy towards the Mexican border was “Shoot first, ask questions later,” which then became her campaign slogan. Now her chances in the gubernatorial race are seen as highly unlikely.
Medina and her team are desperately trying to do damage control on yesterday’s outburst. Publicists issued a statement yesterday afternoon that the entire segment was a comedy routine that she and Beck had written beforehand. Medina herself went online and wrote “I in no way am a member of the 9/11 Truth movement. I believe in the World Trade Center was attacked by Muslim terrorists. And that both buildings fell straight down like an organized demolition, despite how unlikely that seems. I would never tell other Americans what they can or cannot think, and would hope the good citizens of Texas feel the same.” Political experts agree that in Texas it’s still a tossup whether this will help or hinder her.
