Conservative radio host and commentator Charlie Kirk, the founder of Turning Point USA, had some life changing news.

After a week hiatus from his show he came back on Monday, after having Human Events editor Jack Posobiec take the reigns for him, to make a major announcement that he had jept hidden from his fans, Human Events reported.

“Well, I’m back,” the host said. “Thank you guys for watching last week, we deeply appreciate it as always. Jack Posobiec did an amazing job of filling in.”

“I’m going to tell you why I was off last week. I know a lot of different people were messaging us, and we appreciate your support of the show,” he said. “Last week was a week that changed my life.”

“In a world where everything is put on social media, where everything is constantly being posted and being talked about, we made a decision—my wife and I—to keep one thing rather private. And I’ll tell you it was not easy. This was one of the more difficult things I think I’ve ever had to do. Not just keep it private and keep it something secret but also just kind of go through the process of all of that. Outside of some close family and friends, my wife Erica and I, we decided not to tell the world that she was pregnant,” the conservative firebrand said.

He said that it was not simple keeping his secret from the audience.

“And we did that for a variety of reasons, some being security, and also just being that it’s not about social media. It’s not about the millions of people that might talk about it to get likes and to get shares and all of that,” he said. “This was an experience they wanted to be keep for themselves, without constant pings and notifications.


“Last week, we welcomed our beautiful daughter into the world,” the host said.

“I can tell you, I mean many of you are in the audience are parents and grandparents. Everyone who says it’s life changing: exactly,” he said.

“It’s beyond the transformation. When you look down in your arms and you see your child all of a sudden, everything that you’re fighting for everything that you care about,” he said.

“Everything that you are pushing forward gets into absolute clarity almost instantaneously and immediately puts the entire fight of what we’re doing here,” the host said “on the Charlie Kirk show and at Turning Point USA in an entirely new perspective.

“And it was without a doubt the most transformational moment of my life. And boy does it make you want to defeat the bad guys more than ever, and to continue to fight for what is beautiful and what is good and what is true,” he said.

“There was something so special about in a world where almost everything I do is public: ‘what is Charlie wearing? What is Charlie saying? What is Charlie doing?’” he said. “That there’s one element of our life we were able to kind of keep private and it’s not private anymore.”

Congrats to the entire Kirk family.

Last month Kirk’s group demanded that ABC News, whose parent company is Disney, immediately “retract the defamatory statements” made on its show about the group.

“The false statements of fact intentionally made during The View’s July 25th segment were unquestionably harmful to TPUSA’s reputation and brought the organization and its student affiliates into disrepute with the public, potential donors, and current and future business partners, posing a significant financial loss to the organization,” it said, Fox News reported.

The letter was addressed to ABC News New York bureau chief Joshua Hoyos and ABC assistant chief counsel Ian Rosenberg.


“The View hosts intentionally and falsely associated TPUSA with neo-Nazi protesters outside the event placing TPUSA in denigrating and false light and negatively impacting its public perception,” the letter said. “Such action will not be tolerated.”

The cohosts were speaking about TPUSA’s Student Action Summit in Tampa, Florida that was held this past weekend with major notable attendees that included Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.

“Neo-Nazis were out there in the front of the conference with anti-Semitic slurs and, you know, the Nazi swastika and a picture of a so-called Jewish person with exaggerated features, just like Goebbels did during the Third Reich. It’s the same thing, right out of that same playbook,” host Joy Behar said.

It was then that host Sara Haines read a letter from TPUSA denouncing the supposed Nazis, but that did not work for host Whoopi Goldberg.

“But you let them in, and you knew what they were,” she said, which was a lie as the supposed Neo-Nazis were outside the building protesting.

When the show went live again Goldberg backtracked.

“I wanna make a quick clarification about the neo-Nazis at the Turning Point event. They were outside protesters. My point was more metaphorical – you embraced them at your thing, I felt. So, I just – they were not in the building,” she said.

“Lemme just make sure that everybody – cause you know misunderstanding what people say is very big. So we wanna make sure – I know they were not in the building but they were in the mix of people at the thing,” she said.
