Oops: Michelle Obama calls herself a ‘single mom’

Michelle Obama made headlines last week after she referred to herself as a “busy single mom” during an interview with WCAX – a CBS affiliate in Burlington, Vermont. Since Glenn was on vacation, he wasn’t able to cover the story when it happened, but he quickly made up for lost time on radio this morning.

“This is something that happened last week, but we haven't a chance to comment on it,” Glenn said. “I believe [Michelle Obama] is married to someone kind of famous, however, I believe she believes she is single.”

MRS. OBAMA: …So we have to deal with the question of access. And believe me, as a busy single mother – I shouldn’t say single – as a busy mother. Sometimes when you’ve got the husband who’s president, it can feel a little single, but he’s there.

“I believe she believes she is single,” Glenn reiterated. “They take vacations separately. Look, if you take a vacation separate from your spouse and your children, maybe once it's like, ‘You know what, it's boy's night and these are guys that graduated from college with. We're having a weekend in Vegas.’ Not a sign of a real healthy thing going on…”

“I totally disagree with that,” Stu interjected. Stu, who has been known to take the annual boys trip to the Super Bowl, doesn’t think going on occasional trips is the problem, but the Obama’s separate vacationing habits have become somewhat routine.

“You're going to Vegas for a weekend… But that's not what these guys do,” Glenn said. “They go on separate vacations. He goes there, and she goes there. What? What is that?”

“And then they send the kids on separate vacations too,” Pat added. “Every spring break they send both daughters.”

Beyond their independent vacation tendencies, this comment is particularly insensitive coming from someone who constantly tries to paint herself as an average, everyday woman but, in reality, is living a very privileged life.

“You shouldn’t say single. Why,” Pat asked, “because you're married to the President! It might be a very telling moment.”

“It could be, Glenn said. “[Maybe] she does feel like a single mother but not in a bad way. His job is all consuming. We know that she hates the White House. She has dreams – literally she said my biggest dream is just leaving this house and going back to Chicago. So she hates it. Not as much as we hate having you there. But she just hates it. And so she could very well just be like, ‘I'm kind of a single mom because he's working all the time.’”

Despite Glenn’s surprising defense of the First Lady, the sympathy did not last long. “But that [argument] doesn’t work because [the President] leaves the office at 5 o’clock and doesn't come in sometimes until 10 AM. He works a full…”

“A full six hours,” Pat said. “Five or six hours – five hours with lunch.”

“Sometimes he's on the phone,” Glenn added. “Well, if she has a tendency of she's saying, ‘I'm a single mom,’ maybe she should see if everybody can stay home more often. He is technically working from home. He’s got his ‘home’ office. He’s there. You’re upstairs… I'm just saying.”

Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) may say he's all about advocating for the common good, but during his more than 30 years in "public service," the socialist senator has been more adept at promoting his own bottom line.

Investigative journalist and best-selling author, Peter Schweizer, joined Glenn Beck in the studio Friday to discuss his new book, "Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America's Political Elite," and to break downs how Sanders has become the very model of the corrupt socialist leader who becomes wealthy at the expense of the citizens they are elected to serve.

"It's a major problem for Bernie Sanders," Schweizer said. "He's turned socialism into a profession that has generated a lot of money to his family."

"Isn't that what always happens?" Glenn asked. "I mean, everybody in charge of a socialist country, they walk away with billions, in some cases, and the people are left starving."

"Yes, that's exactly right," agreed Schweizer. "It is a racket for Bernie Sanders. And the sort of austere image that he presents —kind of the John the Baptist of the progressive movement — it's simply not true."

By now you've probably heard all about former Vice President Joe Biden's alleged corruption in Ukraine with his son, Hunter, and the Ukrainian energy company, Burisma. But as it turns out, the Biden family's dubious dealings weren't limited to Ukraine, but extended to China as well.

In this clip, Glenn Beck explains Hunter Biden's four primary "problems" in China, including partnering with criminals, working with Chinese companies accused of stealing and spying on the U.S. military, as well as some very sketchy investments.

Bill O'Reilly joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" on Friday for his weekly take on the 2020 presidential race.

O'Reilly emphasized what a dangerous candidate socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) really is, and how the media is working to mislead voters by depicting other Democratic candidates, such as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, as "moderate."

"The Democratic Party has been hijacked -- and this is no breaking news -- by the progressive left. Which is now being enabled by the national media," said O'Reilly.

"Bernie Sanders is a dangerous man. In any sane time, media time, that would be clear to everybody. But it's not," he added. "It's like, 'Oh, there's uncle Bernie and he just wants to give stuff away. What a great guy.' [He's] not a great guy, all right? He's a totalitarian. He'll take your freedom, in every area, away. Every area. There isn't one area, that Bernie Sanders wouldn't intrude upon, in your personal freedom. Yet, that's not reported. You don't know it unless you pay attention. It's all a bunch of dishonest blather that has obliterated the so-called moderate Democrat. And there are millions of those people. They don't know what to do because they have no voice in the media."

Glenn pointed out that the media has been "trying to make Pete Buttigieg into a moderate" ever since his strong showing in the Iowa caucuses last week.

"So, Pete Buttigieg: Harvard grad. Rhodes Scholar. Brilliant man, he is brilliant. Great speaker. Almost as good as Beck and I. Not quite, but almost," O'Reilly said. "He's only 38, all right? So, the guy goes out and runs for president after being the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, for eight years, and almost destroying that city. The city is in chaos, yet he's re-elected with 80% of the vote the second time. That's what a good BS'er Pete Buttigieg is.

The two went on to break down Buttegieg's radical policy plans on immigration, abortion, gun control, and more.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck and his chief researcher, Jason Buttrill, have uncovered new evidence that suggests the coronavirus death toll numbers coming from China are grossly inaccurate.

After vetting several deep-fake videos circulating on social media, Jason unearthed shocking whistleblower-videos released by citizens of the communist state that show entire warehouses filled with body bags, along with other atrocities.

Jason and Glenn break down the real numbers and discuss the possibilities of the outbreak coming to America. Watch the video below for more details:
