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.”

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck and Pat Gray discussed a series of recent polls that suggest presidential nominee Joe Biden's expected lead may be slipping with traditionally Democratic voters.

A new poll conducted by the Jewish Electorate Institute shows that two-thirds of Jewish voters still plan to vote for the Biden-Harris ticket in November. However, President Donald Trump's support within the Jewish community is also the highest among any Republican candidate in recent history.

In more bad news for Biden, a CNN poll (yes, CNN) released last month showed growing support for President Trump among black voters in swing states. Meanwhile, his support among Latino voters remains at roughly 33%.

"I don't think it's going to go the way the Democrats hope that it will," Glenn said of the election. "If you look at the groups that the Democrats have carefully fostered ... that's falling apart. If Donald Trump can grow that by 5%, and hurt the Democrats by 5% ... that alone could swing the election."

We're being set up for a civil war. The Left is grooming us for an Eastern European-style revolution this election, and they're not even trying to hide it any more. The playbook for Mainstreet USA is the exact same that has been used in places like Ukraine, initiated by the same people in order to completely upend the American system.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck takes us through a tale of three chalkboards that will connect the dots: the Obama admin in Ukraine, the State Department's relationship with George Soros, Black Lives Matter and Antifa riots, the Great Reset, public school indoctrination, mail-in voting. It all points to something dangerous happening in November if we don't act now.

The left has already determined that the wildfires raging across the West Coast were definitely caused by climate change and Big Tech is determined to silence anyone who dares suggest otherwise. Facebook even announced a sweeping policy on Saturday to remove posts that claim the fires were caused by arson from far-left activists.

But on his radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck revealed multiple arrest records for suspected arsonists in California, Oregon, and Washington — and several of those charged and arrested were also instigators in Black Lives Matter rallies, violent protests, and Antifa riots. He also called out the "news gods" in Big Tech, daring them to try to censor his video.

"I asked my staff, to see if there was any evidence [of arson] on the fires. And I don't mean evidence from Twitter. I mean evidence. Is there anybody who has been arrested for arson?" Glenn said. "Well, here they are. And YouTube and Facebook, go ahead. I want you to demonetize this clip. I want you to somehow or another say that we're lying. I want you to throttle this. Go ahead. Because then you're going to have to explain what we got wrong. And I happen to have all the documents right here. So my attorney is really ready for that throttling or demonetization. You say you're a protector of the truth? Great, here it is."

Glenn read off the first 10 arrest records, which combined allege the destruction of more than 120,000 acres and 700 structures, as well as tens of thousands of people evacuated from their homes.

"You want to tell us, PolitiFact, how you came to the conclusion ... that there was no arson in these fires?" Glenn asked. "Can you tell me how you came to that conclusion? Because your fact-check seems to be entirely false."

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders joined Glenn Beck on this week's podcast to share her unique perspective as a trusted adviser and confidante to President Donald Trump for two and a half years, which she also details in her new book, "Speaking for Myself: Faith, Freedom, and the Fight of Our Lives Inside the Trump White House."

Sarah described the unprecedented levels of corruption she saw firsthand during the Russia probe and shocking lengths to which Democratic leaders and the mainstream media would go to "take the president down."

Sarah said she often saw sides of Donald Trump that the media never covered. Recently, she went on the record denying the Atlantic's claims that the president mocked our military during a 2018 trip to France. She was on that trip, she told Glenn, and her account of what really happened paints a very different picture.

"The people who are making this outrageous charge are such cowards for doing so in an anonymous way. If you really believed this, and believed it was wrong, one, why did it take you so long? And, two, put your name on it the way the rest of us have," Sarah said.

"He didn't say those things. Not only was I there that day, Glenn, I spent two and a half years traveling all over the world with the president, watching him interact with men and women of our armed forces almost every single day during that two-and-a-half year period," she added.

"This is a person who loves America and loves the people who allow the rest of us to live in America, free, and have prosperity. And I got to see that a lot. I think it is shameful that people are trying to distort who he is and what he has done, particularly when it comes to the men and women in the military."
