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.”

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.
