Congressman: Conservatives want women pregnant and in the kitchen

Congressman Keith Ellison, Democrat-Minnesota, has come under fire for sexist remarks he made about conservative women. Ellison chose to single out fellow Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann in the process.

Ellison claims that conservatives “want to shrink government, to make them drown in a bathtub also want mom or ‑‑ to get back in the kitchen and take her shoes off and get pregnant.”

He then goes on to say that conservative men and women alike share these values, which is when he calls out Bachmann.

“They [conservatives] are offended by a strong, powerful women,” Ellison said. “And here's the sad part. Some of them are women themselves. Michele Bachmann being an example.”

Glenn and Pat had a good time poking fun at Ellison this morning on radio:

GLENN: Next thing you're going to be saying is take off your shoes, get in the kitchen.

PAT: Already said that. I've already said that. It's where my wife is right now. Shoeless, in the kitchen.

GLENN: Pregnant?

PAT: I hope so.

GLENN: (Laughing). I hope so? I hope so. Doesn't even matter with whose child.

PAT: Whatever. No.

In all seriousness though, Ellison’s comments are tasteless. The Blaze reported that Gretchen Carlson took offense to the Congressman’s remarks on Tuesday’s Fox and Friends saying, “That is offensive. How dare you say that about any woman. You don’t know what she wants. You don‘t know that she thinks it’s okay to be back in the kitchen pregnant. Are you kidding me?”

Ellison’s comments are inappropriate and unjustified regardless, but his remarks are especially out of line considering Bachmann’s education and accomplishments as both a congresswoman and attorney.

Women everywhere should take offense to the Congressman Ellison’s off color commentary, for the sexist and ideological dichotomy in this country is getting more and more out of hand every day.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
