GLENN: Let me go to Katy. Can you pull her up in there, Sarah? Katy, how are you?
CALLER: Hi, Glenn.
CALLER: I hope you got some sleep last night.
GLENN: I got very little sleep because Pat broke his or almost broke his ankle yesterday. So we were in the hospital until about 2:00 in the morning.
GLENN: Yeah. But okay, so Katy, you were the person that originally came out to Arlen Specter, one of the first days of the tea parties you were really one of them that made a lot of press.
GLENN: And be then you were on MSNBC and they treated you like garbage.
CALLER: Uh huh.
GLENN: And what is the new turn in this story?
CALLER: The new turn is let me explain to listeners. With these interviews when the networks call you, they will send a car to pick you up and take you to the venue or the video place where you’re going to do the interview.
CALLER: And I’ve noticed that, you know, they are pretty expensive. Well, my husband got a phone call the other day from a gentleman who has a limo company who drove us to the venue for this MSNBC interview with Lawrence O’Donnell, and they never paid him. And so they’re looking to us to try and help them out to get paid.
GLENN: Okay. Hang on. Now, what do you mean they never paid him? I mean, this is whenever we have a guest on the show, we send a car, and we do this. Everybody does this. You send a car because you don’t want the person to get lost, it’s important that they are there for the satellite window, et cetera, et cetera. So we send a car, and we have these deals with car companies all around the country. So what do you mean they didn’t pay him?
CALLER: They haven’t paid him. Simple as that. So, you know, I don’t have a lot of the phone numbers from all these people, and I remember the name of the gentleman who set this up. So I’m in the process of trying to track him down but I’m not quite sure how to do that. But they want to get paid.
GLENN: Did you call MSNBC?
CALLER: I can’t get to him. I can’t get
STU: You put the phone call in and they are not calling you back or what
CALLER: I can’t get him. I can’t get this guy Clary. I don’t know if they think I’m just some whack job. I know people are always trying to call Fox and all the other stations. I don’t know if they think I’m crazy.
GLENN: Did you call well, first of all, how come the limo driver is calling you for the money?
CALLER: Because, well, because he has my information because when you get out of the limo, you sign your name and stuff, you know, just to make sure that you made it home safe and, you know, I mean, obvious, you know, it’s a local business. They want to get paid, and I can understand that.
CALLER: I’d go to whoever I could to try to get the money.
CALLER: You know, he hasn’t asked me to pay yet, but I’m sure that will probably be the next step, just logically. So I’m going to keep trying to get in touch with the gentleman over at MSNBC.
GLENN: Well, I’m sure that because I know the media is listening right now. So I’m sure it’s just some sort of misunderstanding that MSNBC
CALLER: I hope it is. I hope, but honestly the way that I was treated on that show, I had said to your right hand man Joe last night, one thing I hadn’t told you when I was on your show before bawling my eyes off was that when Lawrence O’Donnell was completely attacking me on that show, I had told him that I heard Obama say that he wanted a single payer healthcare system. And Lawrence O’Donnell kept saying, no, he didn’t, no, he didn’t. The one thing that people did not hear was the producer in my ear yelling at him saying she’s right, she’s right, she’s right. He said it like five times. He kept attacking me, and he never clarified and said, oh, my producer says that she’s correct.
STU: So he kept coming after you even after he knew he was wrong?
CALLER: Yes. And if you watch it, go on YouTube, everybody
GLENN: Hang on. Hang on just a second. It could be, Stu, I mean, I don’t know. You can say things in my ear. Do those go into the I know so little about television. Does that go what’s said to me, does that go to the guests? Maybe he was hitting the wrong button and feeding her ear instead of the host’s.
STU: Okay, I see what you’re saying. That’s possible. I don’t know.
GLENN: You were going to say, Katy, that you think he heard it?
CALLER: I know he heard it. Because if you watch the video, he kind of backs off and he’s like, oh, he was just a senator. Because he was Obama was a senator at the time that he said it. "Oh, he wasn’t president." But he never clarified that. He still said it. I don’t care if you’re a president or you’re a senator. If you said it, you said it. He said it.
GLENN: Hmmm. Well, Katy, I wish, I wish you luck on getting the money from the General Electric Corporation.
STU: Can I ask, Katy, a serious question here which is, Katy, I understand your very sketchy story here and I think you’ve been proved to be a liar because
STU: Because of the fact that Barack Obama never did say he was a supporter of a single payer plan. He said he was a proponent of a single payer plan, and that’s completely different. Why are you lying to the American people?
CALLER: You know what? I’m just a dumb stay at home mom.
GLENN: Oh, okay. Gosh, I don’t even know why we’re on the phone with you. Get off my phone.
GLENN: Thanks a lot, Katy, I appreciate it.
CALLER: You’re welcome.
GLENN: I would hope that somebody from MSNBC would call Katy and pay the bill. And Katy, just call MSNBC and say, I have a bill collector who is calling me; I’d sure like somebody to pay for the limo because, gee, I’d hate for that story to get out even anymore. And if you don’t hear from MSNBC and the limo company, you call them in the next day or so. Then we’ll just have to call MSNBC ourself, but we may have to do it while live on Fox. So maybe somebody should pay their bills.
STU: At what point did we get to because I didn’t know this. Can stay at home moms dial the phone?
GLENN: No, she obviously had somebody else dial it.
