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."

On Monday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn opened up about the tragic death of his brother-in-law, Vincent Colonna Jr., who passed away unexpectedly on April 5. He also shared some of the important thoughts and insights he's learned through the grieving process.

"Last Monday, I was sitting in this chair ... the two-minute warning comes and Stu said to me, 'You ready for the show?'' ... And that's when my wife [Tania] came to the door of the studio here at our house and said, 'I...' and she held the phone up. And then she collapsed on the floor in tears," Glenn began. "Tania's brother had passed. To say this was a shock, is an understatement."

Glenn described his brother-in-law as having "a servant's spirit."

"He was always the guy who lit up the room. He was always the guy helping others. He would never stop, because he was always helping others," Glenn said of Vincent. "He was on the school board. He was a little league coach. He was the soccer coach. He helped build the church. He took care of the lawn of the church. He was constantly doing things, raising money for charity, working over here, helping to organize this. But he was never the guy in the spotlight. He was just the guy doing it, and you had no idea how much he had done because he never talked about it.

"We also didn't know how much mental anguish he was in because he never talked about it. And last Monday morning, after spending Easter with the family ... he killed himself. This is now the third family member of mine that has gone through this. And I keep seeing it play out over and over and over again, in exactly the same way."

Glenn described his thoughts as he, Tania, and her family struggled to come to grips with the devastating loss.

"I learned some really important things as I was watching this wake. I'm seeing these people from all walks of life ... the people that were there, were there because [Vince] made a difference in their life. He was a true servant. As I'm watching this, all that kept going through my mind was, 'by their fruits, ye shall know them.' The fruits of his labor were on display. He was a servant all the time. All the time ... he found a way to love everybody.

"There are two great commandments: Love God with all your heart and mind and soul. And love your neighbor. So those two great commandments boil down to: Love truth. Because that's what God is," Glenn said.

"Love thy neighbor. That's where joy comes from. The opposite of joy is despair, and that is the complete absence of hope ... and how do you find joy? You find joy by rooting yourself in the truth. Even if that's a truth you don't want to accept. Accept the truth," he added. "But we have to stop saying that there's nothing we can do. What are we going to do? Well, here's the first thing: stop living a lie."

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"
