President Obama: 'We got poorer together'

Yesterday, President Obama gave a speech on college loans. He claims that because he knows first-hand what student debt is like that he is more qualified to be President of the United States…

Here is what the President had to say:

“Michelle and I, we’ve been in your shoes, we didn’t come from wealthy families. When we graduated from college and law school, we had a mountain of debt. When we married, we got poor together. We added up our assets and there were no assets. And we added up our liabilities and there were a lot of liabilities basically in the form of student loans. Now check this out, I’m the President of the United States…We only finished paying off our student loans about 8 years ago.

We paid more in student loans that we paid in our mortgage when we finally did buy a condo for the first 8 years of our marriage. We were paying more in student loans than we were paying for our mortgage. So we know what this is about.

And we were lucky to land good jobs with a steady income.

But we only finished paying off our student loans – check this out, alright? I’m the President of the United States. We only finished paying off our student loans about 8 years ago. That wasn’t that long ago. And that wasn’t easy especially because when we had Malia and Sasha, we were supposed to be saving up for their college educations and we’re still paying off our college education.

So we have to make college more affordable for our young people.”

Glenn pointed out that, ironically, while Obama is making the point that he understands college students, he’s had college loans, “he didn’t just read about this,” that he’s reads everything he says off of a teleprompter.

“You’re reading that you didn’t just read this,” Pat joked, “and still stuttering about it.”

“He’s like, I didn’t just get talking points,” Glenn said, “They actually typed it out and put it in what I’m reading to you right now.”

The crowd listening to the President’s speech, however, didn’t seem too bothered by the hypocrisy yesterday as they cheered along. Pat took note of how bizarre it is that the students he was speaking to were cheering and applauding the President’s ability to have student debt.

“I think we should tell the President that we don’t doubt his ability to get into a lot of debt,” Stu said. “There is no question that he’s really good at it.”

“Oh, you got a lot of debt. Really? Was it $5 trillion? Yeah, you thought the college loan was bad…” Glenn joked.

Later in the show, Glenn went on to discuss the part of the President’s speech where he discussed how he and Michelle struggled. President Obama told the crowd than he and the first lady added up their liabilities [student loans], and got poorer together.

“Wait, it’s like he married us, because that’s the same thing that’s happening with him now!” Stu joked.

Obama continued on in his speech to act as if the only way he and Michelle got out of debt and started doing really well was because they “got lucky.” It had nothing to do with working as lawyers or writing books, he just got lucky.

Glenn explained how that’s not what happened, and that’s not what a good leader does. Glenn explained how he got to where he is now through hard work and blessings from God.

Pat added, “he [President Obama] never says, ‘And you know what? You can do the same thing. You don't need me to create programs for you’.”

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.

The crisis at the border continues to worsen, with the U.S. Border Patrol recently releasing some shocking statistics that illuminate just how bad the situation has become. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is doing everything he can to prevent any additional unlawful crossings into the Lone Star State.

Abbott joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to describe recent action he has taken to ensure that those who do cross into Texas illegally know they came to the "wrong state."

After noting that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris "have completely abandoned post as it concerns the Texas border," Abbott explained how "Texas is stepping up" to combat the flood of dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers and drugs he says are pouring into border communities.

"Beginning in March, I deployed a thousand Texas Department of Public Safety officers to the border. I deployed the National Guard to the border. And they made well over a thousand arrests of some of these criminals we talked about. They've apprehended more than 33,000 illegal immigrants coming across the border." Abbott said. "But because of the way the Biden administration has abandoned the border, we are now elevating our game. What I did yesterday, in response to more than a dozen counties along the border ... I granted their request for a disaster declaration," he added.

Abbott went on to describe how his disaster declaration gives Texas the authority to toughen penalties for lawbreakers, including criminal trespassing, smuggling, and human trafficking.

"We're going to begin arresting everybody coming across the border and charging them with criminal trespass and putting them in jail. They are coming in here, thinking they'll get the Biden free-ride, and go wherever they want to go. Not in the state of Texas. We'll start arresting them right and left, and putting them behind bars, and saying they came in to the wrong state."

Asked by Glenn if he is prepared for the inevitable "media onslaught", Abbott simply answered, "We're prepared to see a reduction in the number of people coming across the border — because Texas is enforcing the law, period."

California has gone to hell. Homelessness and violence have spiked. Civil liberties and businesses have been destroyed in the name of "COVID safety." Children have been brainwashed with racist critical race theory. And yet, Democrats want to use California as the test model for the entire country. Your state and your town are next. They want their FAILURE to become YOUR FUTURE.

Dave Rubin, host of BlazeTV's "The Rubin Report," moved to Los Angeles about a decade ago. In that time, he's watched it descend into absolute chaos. While most of his news and comedy friends have fled, Dave tells Glenn Beck why he's riding it out and how the rest of the country must save itself from progressive policies and "evil" governors like Gavin Newsom — or else the great American experiment will be over.
