Kimmel rips on the President, Carney, and others at Correspondents' Dinner

The red carpet night of the political elite was this past weekend, the White House Correspondents' Dinner. While the mainstream media is reporting that the President ‘killed it’ and Jimmy Kimmel, the evening’s host, ‘fell flat,’ that’s not exactly how Glenn, Pat and Stu reviewed the event.

“The open of this thing, or at least the open to Obama's section, embarrassing,” Pat said.

The opening of the event centered around the President having a hot mic – a joke on at least two instances that have put President Obama in some sticky situations with the American people over the last year or so. Once, when the President made some questionable remarks to the Russian PM, and another when he was overheard mocking Rep. Paul Ryan. To make matters worse, the joke didn’t end with a pun of the ‘hot mic,’ but also included bathroom humor. Like Pat said, embarrassing.

Bathroom humor and jokes about the President telling the Russians things he doesn’t want American’s to hear …hilarious? Apparently so, if you’re a member of the mainstream media. Jimmy Kimmel, who reportedly fell flat at the Correspondents' Dinner, was actually pretty funny, just a little too honest for those in the media.

“Mr. President, you remember, you remember when the country rallied around you in hopes of a better tomorrow? That was hilarious. That was your best one yet,” Kimmel said to open his act. “But honestly, it's a thrill for me to be here with the President; a man who I think has done his best to guide us through some very difficult times and paid a heavy price for it. You know there's a term for guys like President Obama, probably not two terms, but... there is.”

Kimmel didn’t shy away from other sensitive subjects for the Obama Administration. Everything from the size of President Obama’s ears and the Secret Service to Jay Carney “personally knowing three Hilary Rosens” was on the table.

Glenn described Kimmel’s joke on Carney and the Hilary Rosen situation as “an epic takedown.”

Here is the joke:

“One of Jay's jobs is to keep track of all the Hilary Rosens. For those of you who aren't familiar with this story, Kim, Lindsey, etc. Hilary Rosen is the woman who said Ann Romney never worked a day in her life, even though Mrs. Romney raised five kids, and, of course, the administration tried to distance itself from those comments. They said she is not an adviser to the Obama campaign even though as we later found out, her name appeared on the White House visitor log 35 times. So when reporters asked Jay why her name showed up 35 times, this is where it gets hilarious. He said he wasn't sure it was the same Hilary Rosen. He said, I personally know three Hilary Rosens. You personally know three Hilary Rosens? Where did all these Hilary Rosens come did you pick them in the Hilary Rosen garden? I bet you $10,000 you don't know three Hilary Rosens but I'm not running for president. So... three Hilarys, that sounds like President Clinton's worst nightmare.”

“At least some truth got out there through this comedy,” Pat said.

“Kimmel is one of the first comedians who’s actually crossing that line and being unafraid,” Stu added.

Glenn pointed out that, of course, after he did it, the media rips the act apart and says he wasn’t funny. “This is four years, three and a quarter years into this man's term and this is the first time I've seen a comedian, a big comedian actually take this guy on,” he said. “That's saying something. And as soon as he does, all the press is saying that he failed, it wasn't that funny. He was on fire.”

Glenn, who attended the Correspondents' Dinner in 2009 when Wanda Sikes was the host, described the event as a “slime fest.”

“My wife and I got into the car, when left there, we made a vow we'd never, ever go again,” Glenn said.

Of course, Glenn couldn’t help but point out that his least favorite President, Woodrow Wilson, started the tradition of the Correspondents Dinner. “The idea was they're enemies of the White House and of congress. If we can just bring them in, feed them, have a lot of laughs, hang out with them, we can make them our friends.”

Stu also noted one more interesting detail about the “slimy” event attended by the political elite – the attendees. “The only place you're going to be able to see a whiter crowd than President Obama's staff is at the White House Correspondents Dinner,” Stu said.

“It’s nothing but evil white privileged people, who all they do all day is condescend to you about how you're not diverse enough,” Stu said of the attendees.

Straight from the Marxist con of critical race theory are three big lies about "systemic racism" in America that are debilitating to our nation: the lie that policing in the U.S. is thoroughly racist, the lie of voter suppression, and the lie of equity as the solution to solve "racism." Despite the evidence disproving these lies, they grow stronger, thanks to Democrats and activists with selfish interest in these narratives, who, along with their media partners, spread the sinister message that everything in America is racist by default and only massive government intervention can save us from ourselves. President Biden, Vice President Harris, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi – every Democrat on the national stage sees racism in literally everything at this point.

In this precarious time for America, Glenn Beck and North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson join together with data and the truth to fight back against the race-baiters ripping us apart.

America has always been the land of the free. But as the line fades between the socialist, woke Left, and the Democratic Party that controls our government, are we diving headfirst into Marxism?

On his BlazeTV exclusive show, Glenn Beck spoke with Li Schoolland, who grew up under Mao's cultural revolution in China, and never did she think she would see the same warning signs in America. But now, she has a horrifying warning for us all.

Earlier this year, Coca-Cola became the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But now, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appears to be shifting directions.

The Washington Examiner reported that the company issued a conciliatory statement after conspicuously failing to appear on a published list of hundreds of corporations and individuals that signed a statement denouncing the Georgia voting bill.

"We believe the best way to make progress now is for everyone to come together and listen respectfully, share concerns, and collaborate on a path forward. We remained open and productive conversations with advocacy groups and lawmakers who may have differing views," the company said. "It's time to find common ground. In the end, we all want the same thing – free and fair elections, the cornerstone of our democracy."

Then last week, Coca-Cola Co.'s new general counsel, Monica Howard Douglas, told members of the company's global legal team that the diversity initiative announced by her predecessor, Bradley Gayton, is "taking a pause for now." Gayton resigned unexpectedly from the position on April 21, after only eight months on the job, to serve as a strategic consultant to Chairman and CEO James Quincey.

"Why is Coca-Cola 'taking a pause' on all of these? Because you have been standing up," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. "You and others have been standing up. Your voice, it's the power of one. Your voice makes a difference."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."
