#10 A Day in Glenn Beck’s NYC life
When you are Glenn Beck, living in New York City can be quite an interesting experience. Ever recognizable yet mostly at odds politically with the typical New Yorker, Glenn has had plenty of unfortunate encounters during his last 5 plus years in the Big Apple. This year elevator rides seemed to be the place for the most awkward of encounters. Beginning earlier this year when Glenn shared what seemed like an eternity ride with GM’s Jeffrey Immelt. Glenn has been quite open on air about his disdain for the fact that Immelt and GE were skipping out on taxes while at the same time cozying up to the administration. So what happened when Glenn and Immelt hopped in the same elevator? Glenn explained in our first top memorable Glenn moment of 2011.
Of course more recently there was another elevator incident. This time it was just the typical New Yorker who felt obligated to do something craaaaazy to tell all their friends about. The gentleman had what appeared to be a painting, covered up. Thinking he was just hi-larious, he proceeded to tell Glenn that it was a picture of Obama. Oh man, you really got em there! Glenn explained that incident and one earlier that week where Glenn had a little fun with some New York liberals who were listening a little too closely to Glenn’s lunch conversation out at a restaurant.

Finally, who could forget the epic saga that unfolded after Glenn merely tried to watch a movie in the park over the summer. A popular event at Bryant Park in NYC is outdoor movies – so Glenn took his daughter to see one. People spread out all over the lawn on blankets, but it didn’t take long for people to figure out Glenn Beck was in attendance. A woman ‘spilled’ wine all over Glenn and his family, then everyone in the audience threatened and mocked Glenn IN FRONT of his kids. The shame continued when the losers who did it later lied about it, although their Twitter feed betrayed them and revealed the truth.
