Glenn spent the first part of the show discussing pro-cop killer and rapper Common to perform at a White House poetry jam. Glenn argued that a line exists between entertainment and "evil entertainment", and that applauding cop killers clearly landed Common on the "evil" side of that line. But a caller disagreed.
"I am a 26‑year‑old conservative and have been for a number years and every time I hear this Common thing brought up, it's a nonissue and maybe it's a generational thing and when I hear you talk about it, it sounds like you are doing your old person's voices and back in my day, we would never listen to junk before. I don't know. I'm like there's so many other things we could be talking about than Common at a poetry reading," the caller said.
"He's talking about shooting police officers. That person belongs at the White House and it's only old fogies who think he doesn't, is that what you're saying? Really?" Pat said.
"You can get upset with it because the President, I mean, he's the guy at the head of everything and he shouldn't be promoting this stuff," Stu argued.
And then Glenn chimed into the conversation.
"This is the President of the United States holding a standard and saying, what, what, cop killers, they're cool. Totally cool. Cop killers, yeah, so he's got a song on cop killers. So Van Jones has tried to get a cop killer out of jail his whole career. So‑‑ so all of the people that surround the President seem to have this love for cop killers. What difference does it make? He's not killing any cops," Glenn said.
"He is holding him up as a standard, as an example. Have you heard me talk about the lyrics, have you ever heard me mention Common? The lyrics are the lyrics and people are going to make it, it says more about us whether we consume it or not," Glenn said.
