Why did Glenn compliment President Obama’s softball interview with Ellen DeGeneres?

In an attempt to get as many people as possible signed up for Obamacare ahead of the March 31 deadline, President Obama has been on a borderline desperate media blitz to get the word out on how ‘successful’ his signature healthcare law has been. Forget the fact that only 5 million people have signed up and only a fraction of those signups are in the key 18 to 34 demographic – Obamacare is simply fabulous! Ellen DeGeneres played right into the President’s hand when he appeared on her talk show this week.

On radio this morning, Glenn actually praised President Obama for understanding the “power” of the daytime and late-night TV circuit he seems to be so fond of.

After allowing the President to run through the myriad of reasons why young people in particular should signup for healthcare, Ellen added that the law is “doing very, very well” and she thinks “everyone’s very grateful that [he] did this.”

“I know you said this yesterday when we were talking about him going on [Ellen], but look at the power of these shows,” Glenn said. “Because that's all he's going on. And he knows: I don't need Fox News. I don't need even MSNBC. I don't even need CNN. He's not doing interviews there because they'll ask him tough questions. So what does he do? He just goes on to these shows.”

Earlier this month, President Obama made major headlines for his appearance on comedian Zach Galifianakis’ outrageous Funny or Die parody interview show, “Between Two Ferns”:

The skit actually succeeded in at least driving traffic to Healthcare.gov. Just hours after the video was posted, White House spokeswoman Tara McGuinness tweeted that it was the number one referrer to healthcare website:

Regardless of what you think of President Obama, he certainly understands the best ways to reach his target audience. Viewers of the cable and network news channels could probably call the President’s bluff when he touts the so-called successes of Obamacare, but the people he has reached through Ellen and Funny or Die probably don’t.

“This is why he's smart and why he wins elections. If you're here you know this stuff,” Stu concluded. “If you're watching Ellen, you don't know any of it. You might have thought about it at the time, but you don't remember he said it.”

Glenn Beck: THIS is why Biden nominated Merrick Garland as attorney general

Many will remember President Biden's attorney general nominee Merrick Garland as the man Republicans refused to hold a Supreme Court confirmation hearing for back in 2016. So, was Garland's AG nomination just meant to be a slap in the face to Republicans? Glenn Beck thinks there's a lot more to it.

Given how focused Democrats are on rooting out vaguely defined "right-wing extremism," Garland's work in supervising the prosecution of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing suspects gives us a hint, Glenn suggested on radio this week. He said he's "all for" stopping dangerous extremists, but couldn't help noticing how Garland isn't talking about any of the destruction that happened over the summer.

"I am all for justice. I am all for making sure we catch the bad guys, as long as the bad guys are not defined to be on only one side," Glenn said. "Merrick Garland said [Monday] that there was no comparison between what happened on January 6th and what happened over the summer. That is because the Washington elites see themselves as better than somebody who owns a taco stand. I don't. The Constitution doesn't. They are the same crime."

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Why are we letting criminals out of prison while putting pastors in? Pastor James Coates of Canada's GraceLife Church was recently fined, arrested, and put in maximum security prison for violating lockdown rules.

Rebel News founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" to discuss the story. Ezra said he's noticed a trend of government officials "picking on" Christians as "lockdownism" becomes almost a new kind of religion, and warned this might be just the start of more persecution to come.
