Juan Williams smears Ann Romney as a ‘corporate wife’

Last night, following Ann Romney’s well received RNC speech, Fox News contributor Juan Williams wasted no time sticking his foot in his mouth saying Ann Romney looked “like a corporate wife” who hasn’t struggled in her life. Yes, Juan is referring to the same Ann Romney who has given birth to five sons, survived breast cancer, and has Multiple Sclerosis.

“Romney’s wife, Ann Romney, on the other hand looked to me like a corporate wife. And, you know, the stories she told about struggles, that’s hard for me to believe. I mean, she’s a very rich woman. I know that and America knows that,” Williams said last night on Fox.

Watch the segment below:

This morning on radio, Glenn, who had moments before agreed with Juan’s remarks on Gov. Chris Christie’s speech, had a few things to say about the comments Juan Williams made on Ann Romney, which he described as, “one of the most remarkable things I’ve ever heard” and “unbelievable.”

“Why does everyone get a pass on saying these things about Ann Romney?” Glenn asked.

Consider the fact that Juan Williams said he had a hard time believe a woman with five children who has overcome breast cancer and is currently fighting M.S. – both of which are conditions that affect women more than men – simply because she has money is appalling. If a conservative commentator had made such a comment N.O.W. would probably be marching outside their studio right now.

“I don't care how much money you have, would you rather have a good healthy life or all the money in the world? I think she would rather be poor than have MS and breast cancer,” Glenn said. “But maybe it's just me.”

Juan also backed up what he meant by saying a corporate wife looks like “a woman whose husband takes care of her and she's been very lucky and blessed in this life.”

A woman whose husband has taken care of her? She’s busy raising five boys, all of which seemed to turn out to be upstanding citizens, and Juan Williams finds her to be a pampered “corporate wife” taken care of by her husband.

“Do you know how hard that is?” Pat asked rhetorically. “Apparently not – apparently he’s got no concept of how hard that is. And they didn’t start out rich. I mean, his dad was, but his dad wasn’t taking care of Mitt when he went out and started his own family. His dad wasn’t paying the rent for him.”

Glenn also pointed out that Mitt Romney attended law and business school at the same time – not exactly an easy feat.

“Is there a problem that somebody is successful after they work their butt off?” Glenn asked.

Pat explained that Ann and Mitt were struggling. In the speech, she talked about the tiny apartment they lived in and how Mitt Romney was attending school at two locations and trying to make ends meet for his family.

“It was hard,” Pat said. “And he overcame all that and became successful.”

According to the left, that’s a bad thing.

Plain and simply put, Juan’s comment was insulting and fit in lockstep with the Democrat’s talking points to paint Mitt Romney as a corporate CEO’s that must be evil because he worked his way to the top.

“What they're saying is, here's a guy who's had everything handed to him, you know, he's just this corporate CEO, this cold, calculated person, and they can't understand your struggles because they've never had them,” Stu explained.

“This is the entire approach to the election from the Democratic Party.”

How does a sports writer know how to fix America, and America's racial dilemma?

In a special edition of the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Outkick sports columnist Jason Whitlock filled in Tuesday for Glenn to explain how we can bring America back together, lean into racial harmony, and restore the values of our Founding Fathers. Because if not us, then who will?

Jason started out by explaining how, during a recent appearance on the program, he felt a spiritual connection with Glenn, regardless of physical differences, as both share a common passion for God and country.

"Glenn and I share a kindred spirit. A kindred passion," Jason said. "We have two things that we love and are passionate about: God and country. I am not a minister. I'm a flawed sinner just like Glenn and just like you. But I am a believer. Believers share an energy that connects them, that cuts through our physical differences and makes those differences irrelevant relevant. That's what I felt when I met Glenn, an energy and a spirit that connects us. We are broadcasters, media personalities, operating in separate spaces, trying to talk to Americans, who share our passion."

Jason went on to say that he believes there are forces operating, both outside of and inside America, that are working to separate America from God, and that much of what we've witnessed in 2020 — from the racial division stirred by the mainstream and social media, to the rioting and looting by Antifa and Black Lives Matter, to the "remaking of the sports world into a shrine that celebrates resisting criminal suspects and denigrates this great country at every turn" — are symptoms and consequences of America's enemies separating God and country.

"We are one nation under God. We are nothing without Him," Jason continued. "The flawed sinners who founded this nation baked God into this country with their Declaration of Independence. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal. That they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights. That among those, are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The foreign and domestic enemies of this nation are baking a new American cake. God isn't an essential ingredient in this new cake. He isn't an ingredient at all. The removal of faith is sewing the disharmony that is terrorizing and destroying the United States of America.

"Why am I here today? I'm here to tell you how we take our country back, how we restore the freedoms and the liberties our enemies seek to remove in their remaking of a godless America."

One of the most shocking things British journalist, political commentator, and author of "The Madness of Crowds," Douglas Murray witnessed during his recent stay in America, was how many Americans are acting as if they live in 1930s Germany or behind the Iron Curtain, afraid to stand up and speak out because they're afraid of the consequences.

Murray joined the "Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why he believes the state of America is actually worse than we realize, and how the Left's obsession with rewriting history has ushered in guilt, fear, and a "silent majority."

Murray said he's particularly "fed up" with those on the Right who are afraid to voice their opinion because they don't want to become the target of leftist mobs on social media.

"Do you think anyone in history who told the truth had an easy time? You've got the easiest time that any opposition movement ever did in history," Murray said.

"You cannot have these people in America living in a free society — which is for the time being free — pretending that they live under the circumstances of Jews in 1930s Germany," he added. "Speak up. Speak out. Don't be a silent majority; be a very damn noisy majority. And don't put up with the oppression of people who are totally insincere ... they want to make money. They want to win. Nothing more. Call them out ... and get back to what you should be doing as a nation."

New York City shut down its schools over the coronavirus with barely any notice. But even before that, Governor Andrew Cuomo apparently wasn't in the mood to be asked about it, and he made that very clear to reporters.

Asked on Wednesday whether parents could expect schools to be closed as soon as Thursday, Cuomo mocked reporters for their "obnoxious and offensive" questions and accused them of not paying attention. Watch the testy exchange for yourself here.

On Thursday's radio program, Glenn Beck and producer Stu Burguiere had plenty to say about Stu's least favorite governor and the decision to close schools. But Glenn also offered his own theory on why coronavirus restrictions have become so political: Americans refuse to be forced into submission.

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.
