Ann Coulter reacts to vp debate: "Biden was a cackling old fool and really so rude"

What did Ann Coulter think of last night's vp debate? Was Biden over the top? Was Ryan too passive? The bestselling author joined Glenn this morning on radio to share her thoughts.

"It was quite an amazing evening last night, Glenn said. "I heard they were trying to appeal to women. I don't know a single woman that was like, you know, I want to vote for just an old jerk."

"Yeah, I don't think the appealing to women strategy worked," Ann responded. "It was very strange, Biden behavior, but wow, that's what liberals have been pushing for. I mean, that laughing at everything and serious issues"

During last night's debate Joe Biden seemingly did everything he could to keep Paul Ryan from being able to finish a sentence. He seemed to talk over Ryan at every opportunity, and despite what seem liked a very out-of-balance speaking time, it's being reported that Joe Biden only spoke for about a minute and a half longer than Paul Ryan — which shocked Ann Coulter.

"The problem was when he was being interrupted, both clocks were running," Glenn pointed out.

"I don't think Romney would allow himself to be interrupted that much," Ann commented.

"Ryan was too polite and I would like to remind everyone here that many people were pushing for Ryan as the presidential candidate just to reiterate that we should always hang on my every word," she added.

Ann has a point. While Ryan had good, substantive answers, many of the independent and undecided voters noted that he was letting Biden talk over him too much, which gave Biden the appearance of being more confident. That said, Biden's mannerisms seemed to backfire quite a bit.

Ann described Biden as, "a cackling old fool and really so rude, I completely agree with you on the woman's reaction to that. I mean, it just reminds you of the most Jack ass male you have ever known or dated or had a conversation with the smearing and laughing through everything, utterly inappropriately, utterly dismissive of everything Ryan was sage and Biden was sage a lot of crazy stuff."

On substance, many are calling the debate a draw, but at the very beginning of the debate Biden hit his low point when the subject of the attack in Benghazi were brought to the table.

Joe Biden, despite the hearings that occurred all day on the subject of "what our intelligence was at the time of the attack," seemed to be under the impression that there was no warning that the attacks were coming or that the consulate had requested increased security.

"We just had hearings with state department officials saying yes, we were warned," Ann said. "Biden is saying, I don't know what's going on."

Despite his lack of "intelligence" on issues in Benghazi, the VP went on to say that the White House has good intelligence on Iran and their development of nuclear weapons.

"Right, right, and laughing as Ryan was talking about the danger of Iran getting a nuclear weapon," Ann pointed out. "Biden was laughing. It was really peculiar. And it's interesting that liberals seem to think that this was fantastic and as they say, 'okay, it's gotten Obama back on track' — maybe they planned to say this no matter what the debate performance was."

"I think that was their plan last night. I really think that was their plan last night," Glenn said.

Glenn shifted the conversation to his fast — honestly, how long do you expect Glenn to go without talking about food with he can't eat sweets — and gave Ann a perspective he hadn't heard from anyone else…

"I think we saw who Mitt Romney truly was and I think we saw who Obama truly is. I think we saw the real Paul Ryan and the real Joe Biden. So I think there's some divine Providence, and let me…I tweeted this morning.

God sent his tweet out a little while ago and it's Proverbs," Glenn said.

When a wise person debates with a fool, the fool rages and laughs and there is no peace and quiet.

"Wow," Ann reacted.

Glenn added, "That's exactly what happened last night."

Glenn went on to ask Ann what she sees coming down the road the last few weeks of this election.

She noted that the reaction from the public to the media and other forces, like her book, seem to have changed the left's "favorite campaign" talking points. She noted that a week before her book came out Al Sharpton described the integration of Ole Miss by James Maris (who was actually a Republican being blocked by a Democratic governor who was supported by Jimmy Carter) as "the Republicans versus the Democrats, as usual, reversing the parties and said we're fighting the same forces today on things like, women's reproductive choice."

"He did the same story for no particular reason about the little rock high schools and this time, he said who the Republicans and the democrats actually were," she said.

"People have had enough of it," Glenn said. "I think the idea of just playing the high ground here, being firm, being clear, but playing the high ground and not engaging in that I think that's what's going to win."

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?
