Mistake: Romney makes a birther joke

Mitt Romney is a lot of things - successful businessman, decent human being, family man. One thing he’s not? Funny. So it’d probably be a good move to stop trying to have him make jokes at the beginning of stump speeches. Like a recent speech in Michigan when a harmless joke came out bad and ended up giving Democrats fodder for a few days.

In a speech on Friday, Romney said, "“Now I love being home in this place where Ann and I were raised, where both of us were born. Ann was born in Henry Ford Hospital, I was born in Harper Hospital. No one’s ever asked to see my birth certificate, they know that this is the place that we were born and raised.”

WATCH:

Now, was that a smart comment to make? No! But is it as bad as the media is making it out to be? Pat and Stu debated the topic on radio this morning.

"So he clearly, obviously joking about the birth certificate thing, right?" Pat said.

"Right. He's making a joke about a silly Internet rumor. That's what he's doing. And that is clearly on the table as a joke. The point is, of course, that everyone takes it seriously as if he's making some policy statement," Stu said.

Despite the obvious, failed attempt at a joke - the usual suspects are coming out to bash Romney in the media.

For example, Debbie Wasserman Schultz has come out saying the comment is beneath someone running for President of the United States. Michael Eric Dyson has said it was some of the "basic and most despicable bigotry" imaginable.

Are they taking it a little too far? After all, they are basically implying it lands on the same level of bigotry as slavery!

And, as the guys pointed out on radio, no one loves to bring up the birth certificate more than Barack Obama!

"They can joke about it, and do, all the time on a regular basis. Carney jokes about it. Obama jokes about it. Axelrod has joked about it. They all bring it up because they love it," Pat said.

There's been a lot of talk about the idea of a (peaceful) "national divorce" as the Left continues to abandon everything that made America what it is. Well, this week's guest on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" is all for that divorce. Michael Malice is the author of "The Anarchist Handbook" and host of the podcast "Your Welcome." He joined Glenn to talk about how an anarchist would peacefully take on America's greatest challenges — with a smile.

"My rights are not up for discussion," Malice told Glenn. He explained why his version of America will save America, and why, in spite of anxious talk of "national divorce," he has so much hope for the future.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.
