What happened when Sean Hannity called the Obamacare hotline on his radio program?

After President Obama gallantly told the nation that they should call the Obamacare hotline if they are experiencing difficulty accessing the exchanges online, Sean Hannity decided to take the President’s advice by calling the hotline live on his afternoon radio program.

“Did you hear what Sean Hannity did yesterday,” Glenn asked on radio this morning. “Pat, when's the last time we called out and did something like this, put people on the air?”

“It’s been a long time,” Pat responded. “It’s really hard to do now.”

Hannity, who first had to navigate through the automated menu, was eventually connected with representative Erling Davis.

“You are on the radio, you are on the Sean Hannity radio show,” Hannity informed Davis.

“You’re on the radio. Is that OK with you? You have to say ‘yes’ if you want to be on.”

Davis gave her consent, and Hannity began to pepper the representative with questions about call volume and signing up for Obamacare.

Listen to the radio segment below:

When Hannity explained to Davis that he has been having problems enrolling using the healthcare.gov website, Davis explained the system is expected to be down for the next 42 hours.Based on the President’s remarks in the Rose Garden yesterday morning, you would assume that people could then register over the phone, but alas, that is not the case.

“So no one is able to get in, but if they call us we can help them fill out an application as long as they went online to create an account first,” Davis said.

“Well that’s the point, I can’t get online to create an account, so how would I be able to create the account if the website is down for the next 42 hours,” Hannity asked.

“You would have to wait until those 42 hours is up,” Davis replied.

While Davis was sympathetic to the plight of those attempting to signup for Obamacare, all she could offer was a meek word of inspiration.

“Yes, sir, and I understand your frustration,” she said. ”We get calls like this everyday, but we just encourage people to not give up and just try until you get in. But nobody won’t be able to get in until like 42 hours later.”

Glenn was particularly struck by Davis’ encouragement to “not give up.”

“Did you hear what she said? That we know it's hard. We know people are having trouble, but we tell them not to get discouraged and not to give up,” Glenn said exasperatedly. “Can you imagine If the President of the United States would just say those words about the free market system, about people trying to make it in life? Just don't get discouraged. Just don't give up. It's worth it in the end. But unless it's a government program that you have to stand in line for, he won't say that. It's worth it in the end. Life is worth it. Independence is worth it. Self esteem, all these things that you gain from just not giving up.”

“And like signing up for Obamacare, it's going to be hard from time to time. It's going to be really stinking hard. But work through it,” Pat continued. “Sometimes you may be out of work for a year, or two years, fight through it.

“He speaks from experience, Pat does,” Glenn explained. Pat was once out of work for an entire year, and a friend of his just recently found work after two years of unemployment. As the unemployment rate remains above 7%, it would be nice to hear the “don’t give up” mantra from the President of the United States every once in while, but this Administration only offers such encouragement when it pertains to a government handout.

“It's amazing that is the script that this Administration gives,” Glenn said. “Don't give up. Don't give up.”

“As long as it applies to their healthcare program, don't give up,” Pat interjected. “Because we are there to take care of you.”

“Or any government program. Stand in any line. Don't give up. Don't ever let anybody tell you that you can't have this program, this free thing from the government,” Glenn continued. “Don't ever give up on anybody saying you can have this free stuff. Don't ever give up. But you got to give up because this doesn't work. This other system over here, it doesn't work. They keep telling you that you can make it and you are trapped. And you won't make it. So come over here and stand in line. And once I get you in line, just don't give up because it's worth it. My gosh, how evil is that?”

Davis revealed to Hannity she had been provided a script to read to callers advising them of the glitches in the system, and Hannity asked her to read it aloud for his listeners to hear.

“Thanks for your interest in the health insurance marketplace. We are having a lot of visitors trying to use our website right now. This is causing some glitches for some people trying to create an account or log in. Keep trying and thanks for your patience. You might have better success during off-peak hours like later at night or early in the morning. We’ll continue working to improve the site so you can get covered,” Davis said the script reads.

“This is bull crap. Listen to that. That is such bull crap,” Glenn said. “These guys try to image themselves as Apple. Would Apple ever do that to you? Would Apple say, ‘Call us back at 2:30 in the morning’? They would never ever do that. They would not lie to you.”

“Look what they are doing. They are training you. Training you to just get over it. There's nothing you can do about it. Just stand in line. This is why Marxist countries end up standing in line for toilet paper,” Glenn continued. “It's just incredible.”

'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long': BlazeTV hosts react to historic Roe v. Wade decision

The Supreme Court of the United States officially overturned Roe V. Wade, and the debate over abortion rights has been given back to the states. On this historic day, BlazeTV hosts celebrate the Supreme Court's incredible decision and take a look at some of the insane reactions as the left comes completely undone.

Glenn Beck reacts LIVE to Roe v. Wade ruling: 'Lord, we are SORRY it has taken us this long'

I never thought that in my lifetime, I would see Roe v. Wade be overturned. But today, that day has come. The Supreme Court has voted 6 to 3 to return decisions about abortion to the states. But this fight isn't over. We are about to see good versus evil side by side. Many states will stand with the unborn. But others will become abortion mills. It's your turn to choose now, America!

Allie Beth Stuckey: 'Praise God, Roe v. Wade is overturned!'

I don't know about you, but I just had the most euphoric feelings. It almost seems too good to be true. I didn't think there was any way that this would actually happen, especially with all the backlash, intimidation, and violence toward the Supreme Court justices. And yet, here we are. Roe v. Wade has been overturned. This is an amazing day!

Dave Rubin: Big disagreement on what happens next now that Roe v. Wade is overturned

Dave Rubin, Libby Emmons, Jeffrey A. Tucker, and David Reaboi debate what will happen in the wake of the Supreme Court’s breaking decision on Roe v. Wade. Now that abortion rights have been pushed back to the states, will there be a summer of massive riots or not? Will the Roe v. Wade ruling make America’s political polarization significantly worse?

Jason Whitlock: Today will forever stand as a pivotal moment in our nation’s history

The Supreme Court of the United States overturned Roe v. Wade. The decision and the reaction to it have already revealed a lot about our people and politics. Pro-life groups celebrate, pro-choice groups call for “a night of rage,” and Nancy Pelosi just seems completely confused by the United States Constitution.

Stu Burguiere: Here are the reasons SCOTUS overturned Roe v. Wade

I never thought this would happen. I never thought I would see this day. I just never ever ever ever never ever believed that Roe v. Wade would actually be overturned. I really didn't. But let's take a look at the reasons this day has finally come ...

The Rick & Bubba Show: 'This is history! Unfortunately we're 60 million lives too late'

CNN reporter tries to 'ambush' GOP candidate Kari Lake, IMMEDIATELY regrets it

CNN senior national reporter Kyung Lah thought she'd caught Republican Arizona gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake off guard when she asked for an impromptu interview outside an event, but ended up sorely regretting her decision.

Lake, a former Fox news anchor, shook hands with Lah as she approached and immediately pointed out that the CNN reporter wasn't wearing a mask any more, a barbed reference to a contentious interview in October 2021, in which Lah smeared the GOP candidate as a “rising star of the right-wing and proud spreader of lies." Lah asked if Lake had “a minute to chat.”

“I’ll do an interview," Lake answered, "as long as it airs on CNN+. Does that still exist? I didn’t think so, because the people don’t like what you guys are peddling, which is propaganda. Thank you.”

Lake then walked into the event, leaving Lah utterly speechless.

It looks like Lake gained quite a few fans on Twitter:

Kari Lake has been a longtime friend to "The Glenn Beck Program." She joined Glenn last August to tell Glenn why she left the corrupt world of media, what prompted her to enter "the even more corrupt world of politics," and how she plans to make a big difference in her battleground state of Arizona.

Hunter's Biden's latest BIZARRE scandal reveals how red-flag laws REALLY work

Even if red-flag laws weren't unconstitutional (which they are), they've never been about your safety. They're about your submission, argued Glenn Beck on the radio program. Think of it this way: If red flag laws became the law of the land, do you think President Joe Biden’s son Hunter would lose his guns or face charges for violating the gun laws we already have?

You may have heard that he once "lost" a gun in a dumpster by a school. But there's a whole lot more to the bizarre tale. Newly revealed texts from Hunter's abandoned laptop detail the strange drama that unfolded when Hallie Biden, Hunter's sister-in-law-turned-lover, threw his handgun into a dumpster near a Delaware school in October 2018. The gun was found and turned in to police, but like so many of the Biden family scandals, the chaos created a sandstorm that conveniently helped cover Hunter's tracks. Only tidbits of information have emerged, the most significant of which is that the gun in question was purchased by Hunter illegally and, of course, no charges were filed as a result.

Glenn broke down the details of the most recently revealed Hunter Biden scandal, noting in particular that no charges or arrests were ever made as a result.

"If you voted for Joe Biden and you believe in all of these red-flag laws, then why isn't Hunter Biden in jail today?" Glenn asked.

"You and I both know that the ramifications of Hunter Biden's activities and his tragic saga go well beyond Hunter Biden, because they are teaching people a lesson. We are moving towards a society that has a ruling class that lives above their own edicts. They tell us they know better. They tell us that our neighbors and even some of us are dangerous, while ignoring the dangers in their own lives or in their own families ... We saw it during COVID-19 and we will see it again with gun regulations, 'The rules are for thee and not for me.' This is why Americans cannot give an inch, not one inch of our liberty away on the grounds of the government's good faith. They have no good faith left. They have violated every single principle of liberty and they've done it in a name of they know better," he said.

"Don't be fooled," Glenn added. "Just as we saw during COVID-19, just as we saw with the Patriot Act that is now being horribly abused by the people in power that swore they'd never abuse it, red-flags are not about your safety. Period. They are about your submission."

Thanks to a recent report from the Federalist, we now know of an ‘insidious’ White House plan to significantly alter commercial sales of ammunition. Not only would this plot skyrocket the price of ammunition for everyday consumers, but it could create a national security risk by limiting one factory’s ability to produce for the military under war-time demand as well.

Larry Keane, from the National Shooting Sports Foundation, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to detail this White House move, and he explained how he knows the government is lying about it, too.
