Obama: the 'Food Stamp President'?

President Obama likes to remind everyone that he is definitely NOT the ‘food stamp president.’

Forget the fact that food stamp usage has drastically increased under his administration – he is not promoting food stamp usage.

President Obama may not be the ‘food stamp president,’ but he is the president who has put out a massive advertising campaign to show people just how accessible food stamps are.

Glenn played the audio from one of the ads on radio this morning:

VOICE 1: I love taking my grandkids to the park, but if I want to keep up with those little bundles of energy, I have to stay healthy and eat right.  And that can be a real challenge.  But that's where food stamp benefits come in. They help me eat right when money's tight.

VOICE 2: Would you look at Margie. She looks amazing.

VOICE 1: Yes, she sure does.

VOICE 2: I wonder how she stays so fit. What's her secret?

VOICE 1: Well, she told me that food stamp benefits help her eat right and she stays active, too.

VOICE 2: Oh. I didn't know they helped people our age.

VOICE 1: Oh, food stamps help lots of people. People you know.

VOICE 2:  Wait. You, too?

VOICE 1:  Yes, I do.

“No! She's on them, too,” Glenn joked. “Everybody is on food stamps.  Well, gee, Marge, maybe I should be on food stamps.”

“How do you stay so young,” Pat asked. “Well, I eat right, exercise, and I use food stamps every day.”

“But he’s definitely not… he’s not the food stamp president,” Glenn responded.

While there is nothing wrong with people using food stamps as a last resort, encouraging the use of food stamps because it’s easier than ever to get approved for them takes the dangers of an entitlement society to a new level.

“There's nothing wrong ‑ if our folks are ‑ if our folks are struggling and there's nobody in the family to help them, that's what food stamps are for,” Glenn said. “For people who are really struggling and can't. But listen to this ad again. That's not what it is. This is like, ‘You know, sometimes I wet my pants.’ That's why there's Depends. I mean...”

“Do you get the impression after listening to that ad that the food actually tastes better if you purchase it with food stamps,” Stu asked.

“Marge is going, she's let herself go,” Glenn responded. “She was eating hot dogs, Twinkies and Doritos.”

“But now she's on food stamps,” Pat said. “But look how great she looks now. Now she's a fashion model.”

All kidding aside, it is incredible to think that a measure put in place to temporarily help people who are struggling is now being touted as a lifestyle choice.

“Here's an ad for people who are 70 years old who need to know about food stamps. We all know that food stamps is the, is the last thing you were taught to get onto. You were taught not to take charity from the government. You were taught to make it yourself,” Glenn concluded.

“And you know what? You have made it your whole life. You've worked hard. You've put money in. You did the right thing,” he continued. “And if times right now are too tight for you, this is exactly what this program was made for. Not deadbeats, not people who won't work, but people who can't or just can't make ends meet to be able to get the nutrition that they need to be a productive citizen.”

“Look at yourself in the mirror. Do you need them? Now, are you too proud to take them? If you need them, take them. You're exactly the person they're made for. That's the way it works.”

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."

Glenn Beck has had enough of exposing scandal after scandal, just to have everyone look the other way: Benghazi, Hillary Clinton's emails, Joe and Hunter Biden's dealings in Ukraine and China … the list goes on, but no consequences are paid. Now, the media have called the election for Joe Biden and insist no one can question it. But for many of the more than 71 million people who voted for President Trump, our search for the truth isn't over yet.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn called out the left's long list of alleged corruption that has gone unchecked and stressed that Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process of investigating the multiple allegations of election fraud to ensure our voting systems are fair.

"I don't know about you, but I'm tired. I am worn out. I am fed up!" Glenn said during his opening monologue. "I've had enough. I am tired of exposing corruption, doing our homework, even going overseas and having documents translated to make sure they're exactly right, [and] presenting the evidence ... except, once we expose it, nothing happens. Nobody goes to jail. Nobody pays for a damn thing any more!"

While the mainstream media has called the election for Joe Biden, Glenn gives a rallying cry to conservatives. Many of the over 71 million people who voted for President Trump are split between frustration and an urge to do something. The multiple allegations of election fraud are largely out of our hands, and Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process to ensure our voting systems are fair.

But that doesn't mean we have to sit on our hands. There is an urgent need to focus on the ongoing Senate races. Glenn has warned us of the Left's radical plans should they sweep this election, and the wolves are already descending on Georgia.

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn reveals the desperate measures they're taking to win two Georgia runoff races in January and claim the Senate. Senator Mike Lee joins to warn what will happen to the country if Chuck Schumer becomes Senate majority leader and why we must have a transparent process so that Americans can trust the final count.

Later, Glenn reveals a new project for Americans who are not ready to roll over and let the Marxists win the battle for our country.
