White House pastry chef resigns… because he is tired of demonizing cream, butter, sugar, and eggs

In one of the more bizarre stories in the news today, White House pastry chef Bill Yosses has resigned. In an interview with the New York Times, Yosses explained the decision to leave the White House as “bittersweet.” While he enjoyed working with “inspiring” First Lady Michelle Obama, he no longer wants to “demonize cream, butter, sugar and eggs.” On radio this morning, Glenn reacted to the “insane” resignation.

“So the White House pastry chef has had enough,” Glenn said. “You want to talk about an out-of-control country? ‘I refuse to demonize eggs, sugar, cream, and butter.’ That is the most insane statement I've ever heard. [It’s] implying you have been demonizing them because somebody has been making you demonize them.”

Former First Lady Laura Bush hired Yosses in 2007. According to the New York Times, Yosses was acclaimed in New York “for the raspberry and pear soufflés he created at restaurants like Montrachet and Bouley” prior to joining the White House staff. When the Obama’s arrived at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in January 2009, he “began moving beyond the traditional sugar sculptures and cookie plates.” Instead, Yosses was “directed to make more healthful desserts, and in smaller portions, that were to be served only sparingly to the first family.”

As Stu pointed out, Yosses attempts to hedge some of the speculation about his departure in the New York Times story, explaining he is headed back to New York “with an aim to teach children and adults about eating better.” But Glenn isn’t buying it.

“What better place to teach kids about eating healthy than right next to Michelle Obama, who wants to teach kids about eating healthy,” Glenn asked. “If you really believed that she was on the right track at all, you would stay there. If you decided you wanted to leave, you would say, ‘The First Lady has made such an impact, and I think I can make a greater impact or a secondary impact by joining her fight outside of the White House’… [But] what he's saying with [his] statement is: She's nuts.”

Meanwhile, the First Lady has responded to Yosses’ departure with the following statement:

“I am also so grateful to him for his outstanding work, not just as the White House pastry chef, producing the most delectable creations for everything from birthday celebrations to state visits, but also as a key partner helping us get the White House kitchen garden off the ground and building a healthier future for our next generation. I wish Bill and his husband, Charlie, all the best in their future endeavors.”

“Listen to this,” Glenn concluded. “Here's what she says: ‘He was instrumental in getting the White House more healthy.’ Was he now? Because he just said, ‘I refuse to demonize eggs and cream and sugar anymore.’ That's incredible. Great story."

Canadian clinical psychologist, author, and cultural firebrand Jordan Peterson is no stranger to cancel culture. Ever since he was thrust into the culture war, he has faced one controversy after another, stirred up by the woke elites who hate him with a passion. But although they have tried to make him pay for speaking out so fearlessly against their message, he refuses to back down and he believes you should, too. He joined "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to explain why.

"There is a growth of the reluctant hero in all stories ... so many people think that they don't have what it takes, that they're not the hero," Glenn said to Peterson. "How do you get people to recognize and then have the courage to stand? You've taken a beating ... why is it worth it and how do you get there?"

"I think it's worth it because I believe the alternative is worse ... to stay silent when you have something to say," Peterson replied. "You don't know what it is within you that requires your voice, right, because you feel like 'I have something to say.' Where does that come from exactly, that feeling that you have something to say?

"Maybe you're disgruntled at work and you're choking on your own bile because the situation is not just in your estimation," he continued. "You're dying to say something, but you won't. Well, you'll die if you don't say it. Maybe it's a death by a thousand cuts. I don't like deferred punishment. I'd rather take it now and keep the future clean, which is why I encourage people to have the fights now, not to hide things in the fog for later. They grow and metastasize. It's better to confront what you need to confront when it's small and you have some possibility of victory."

Top officials at the Federal Reserve are doing what they can to sugar coat what's ahead for our economy, telling Americans we may hit a "transitory" period of inflation that will settle by 2022. But Bank of America is saying something different. The bank's latest earnings call commentary warned "at the very least" transitory hyperinflation is ahead.

Straight from the Marxist con of critical race theory are three big lies about "systemic racism" in America that are debilitating to our nation: the lie that policing in the U.S. is thoroughly racist, the lie of voter suppression, and the lie of equity as the solution to solve "racism." Despite the evidence disproving these lies, they grow stronger, thanks to Democrats and activists with selfish interest in these narratives, who, along with their media partners, spread the sinister message that everything in America is racist by default and only massive government intervention can save us from ourselves. President Biden, Vice President Harris, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi – every Democrat on the national stage sees racism in literally everything at this point.

In this precarious time for America, Glenn Beck and North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson join together with data and the truth to fight back against the race-baiters ripping us apart.

America has always been the land of the free. But as the line fades between the socialist, woke Left, and the Democratic Party that controls our government, are we diving headfirst into Marxism?

On his BlazeTV exclusive show, Glenn Beck spoke with Li Schoolland, who grew up under Mao's cultural revolution in China, and never did she think she would see the same warning signs in America. But now, she has a horrifying warning for us all.
