Michelle Obama wants us to… drink more water?

First Lady Michelle Obama has a new health initiative – she wants you to drink more water.

“So anyway, the First Lady was on the Today Show. And if you notice, they're turning on these people. They are starting to turn on them,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “She was on the Today Show with some ridiculous thing about how we just all have to drink extra water. It's a special initiative.”

Just how serious is the First Lady about your hydration? On Thursday morning, the Mrs. Obama made a taped appearance on NBC’s TODAY show, in which she jokes that she has “stolen Matt and Savannah’s mugs and exchanged them for water glasses” to get her point across. TODAY show anchor Savannah Guthrie, however, did not seen to be amused.

MATT LAUER:  And the First Lady, Michelle Obama, sent us a special message about it. Take a look.

MICHELLE OBAMA:  Hello, Today Show viewers, and good morning from the White House. Today I'm working to inspire Americans from all across the country to drink more water. That's why I've stolen Matt and Savannah's mugs and exchanged them with water glasses. Water is the best and easiest choice we can make to feel energized, focused, healthy and refreshed. You are what you drink.  And when you drink water, you're at your best.  So drink up.

After the taped message from Mrs. Obama finishes playing, Matt Lauer, Savannah Guthrie, Natalie Morales, and Al Roker are seen sitting out on the TODAY plaza with water glasses aloft, ready to do what the First Lady requests, Savannah Guthrie replies quite dryly, “If you say so.”

“I like what Savannah says there: ‘If you say so,’” Pat said. “It would seem to be a, ‘Yeah, I'm not buying into your nonsense on this one’ because she probably saw the report just like we did three weeks ago where none of that is true.”

While we have all been programmed to believe that we must drink 8 glasses of water a day, recent studies seem to indicate it might not be necessary.

TheBlaze reports:

“There really isn’t data to support this,” Dr. Stanley Goldfarb of the University of Pennsylvania tells Politico. “I think, unfortunately, frankly, they’re not basing this on really hard science. It’s not a very scientific approach they’ve taken. … To make it a major public health effort, I think I would say it’s bizarre.”

Sam Kass — the White House assistant chef and director of Let’s Move — cites obesity as one of the ills that could be reduced through more water consumption.

“We do have a quarter of kids who drink no water under the age of 19. And over 40 percent of Americans aren’t even drinking half the water we know is recommended for optimum health,” he told reporters in a conference call Wednesday.

Goldfarb, a kidney specialist, is troubled by White House claims that drinking more water boosts energy, calling that conclusion “quixotic.”

“We’re designed to drink when we’re thirsty,” Goldfarb adds. “There’s no need to have more than that.”

“Can I ask you a question, a real serious question? Is this all these people have to do with their time? Really? To try to teach us how to drink more water,” Glenn asked. “The world is on fire. Wouldn't you like to see the First Lady compassionate about the Christians that are being slaughtered? Wouldn't you like to see that? How about teaching somebody to read? How about going into the inner cities of Chicago that you're supposed to love so much and teaching them not to kill each other?”

“And they mocked, relentlessly mocked, Nancy Reagan for her antidrug campaign,” Stu added.

“This is one of the dumbest things I've ever seen,” Pat agreed. “There's no mocking going on. None.”

“I believe Brian Sack (of The B.S. of A.) may mock the water initiative,” Glenn concluded. “If they still want a paycheck. “

POLL: What did YOU think about the 2nd GOP presidential debate?

Wednesday was a big night for the Republican presidential candidates during the second GOP debate... OR WAS IT?

Glenn wasn't impressed with the debate. In fact, he went as far as to say it was the worst Presidential debate BY FAR he had ever seen for THIS reason: NO ONE discussed the major issues that Americans are actually facing.

Inflation has doubled Americans' grocery bills. Gas is nearing a historic record of $100/barrel. We have DOUBLED our national deficit. Bidenomics and the globalists' green agenda pose an existential threat to core American industries while we continue to fund the Ukrainian people's pensions and small businesses. It is as if our government has forgotten the American people.

COVID is back! Or that is what we’re being told anyway...

A recent spike in COVID cases has triggered the left's alarm bells, and the following institutions have begun to reinstate COVID-era mandates. You might want to avoid them if you enjoy breathing freely...

Do YOU think institutions should bring back COVID-era mandates if cases increase? Let us know your thoughts HERE.

There was a time when both the Left and the Right agreed that parents have the final say in raising their children... Not anymore.

In the People's Republic of California, the STATE, not parents, will determine whether children should undergo transgender treatments. The California state legislature just passed a law that will require judges in child custody cases to consider whether parents support a child’s gender transition. According to the law, the state now thinks total affirmation is an integral part of a child’s “health, safety, and welfare.”

We are inching closer to a dystopia where the state, not the parents, have ultimate rights over their children, a history that people from former Soviet nations would feign repeating.

The Biden admin has let in MORE illegal aliens than the populations of THESE 15 states

There are currently an estimated 16.8 MILLION illegal aliens residing in the United States as of June 2023, according to the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR). This number is already 1.3 million higher than FAIR's January 2022 estimate of 15.5 million and a 2.3 million increase from its end-of-2020 estimate. Even Democrats like New York City's Mayor Adams Mayor Adams are waking up to what Conservatives have been warning for years: we are in a border CRISIS.

However, this isn't the same border crisis that Republicans were warning about back in 2010. In the first two years of the Biden administration alone, the illegal alien population increased by 16 PERCENT nationwide, imposing a whopping net cost of $150.6 BILLION PER YEAR on American taxpayers. That is nearly DOUBLE the total amount that the Biden administration has sent to Ukraine.

This isn't the same border crisis that Republicans were warning about back in 2010.

These large numbers often make it difficult to conceptualize the sheer impact of illegal immigration on the United States. To put it in perspective, we have listed ALL 15 states and the District of Colombia that have smaller populations than the 2.3 MILLION illegal immigrants, who have entered the U.S. under the Biden administration. That is more than the entire populations of Wyoming, Vermont, and South Dakota COMBINED—and the American taxpayers have to pay the price.

Here are all 16 states/districts that have FEWER people than the illegal immigrants who have entered the U.S. under the Biden administration.

1. New Mexico

Population: 2,110,011

2. Idaho

Population: 1,973,752
