Glenn reacts to Jon Stewart’s rant on Josh Earnest

President Obama recently hand picked two U.S. Ambassadors to Hungary and Argentina. The selection for Argentina doesn’t speak spanish and has never set foot in Argentina while the selection for Hungary cannot name America’s interests in the region and is a soap opera actress. Josh Earnest was forced to defend this picks and it didn’t go well. Glenn cheered on Jon Stewart’s bit mocking the entire debacle.

GLENN: At least at this time, you come back to me in an hour and I might want something else. But for the time being, all we want is love, pancakes, some bacon and some syrup. That's it. That's all — hello and welcome to Friday. We're glad you're here. Let's just start with Jon Stewart, shall we? Jon Stewart was calling BS to Josh Earnest to the Hungarian ambassador. The Hungarian ambassador was a soap opera producer that has just been appointed. He was a bundler for the president. When she was in front of Congress, can you tell us anything about Hungary, and I think she probably could have gone down — well, I'm hungry right now, and I'd like some pancakes and I heard on the radio syrup and bacon.

PAT: That sounds good to me.

GLENN: She couldn't answer one thing about Hungary. And so Josh Earnest was asked, so what are her qualifications? Here's Jon Stewart.

STEWART: Yesterday it was time for the person holding Washington's worst job to have a lousier day than usual.

VOICE: Ambassador Bell has the president's confidence.

VOICE: Where does the president get that confidence?

VOICE: She certainly is somebody that is — has had her own distinguished private sector career.

VOICE: As a soap opera producer, right?

VOICE: Well, and obviously somebody who has succeeded in the business world.


STEWART: How much does that guy just want to reach over and tag out? Just give a quick one to Jay Carney, or maybe Roman Reigns or maybe one of the Usos or maybe Bray Wyatt or perhaps Bruno San Martino could — I've been watching wrestling for a very long time. Answer the questions, Earnest!

VOICE: Can you tell me the fact that she helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for the president's re-election campaign had nothing to do with her appointment? You can't say that, can you —

VOICE: I can tell you that's not the reason she was chosen. I can tell you the reason she was chosen — frankly, I was not part of this decision-making process.

STEWART: What? You can't do that. That is the greatest thing I've ever seen the president's press secretary do. His entire job, his only job, is built around trying not to go, hey, look, I just [bleep] work here.


STEWART: But that's what he did. Take it up with my supervisor! Earnest, out.


PAT: Now, it would be nice if Stewart noticed that a little more often, because it happens every day.

GLENN: It has been every single day for the last seven years.

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: For the love of Pete.

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: But Jon Stewart, let's give him a bone. At least once. At least once.

PAT: Nice job.


GLENN: He's found that.

PAT: She raised 2.2 million. 2.1 million for the president.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: That had nothing to do with it? He's asked point-blank, you can't tell me that that had nothing do with it. And the answer was no. He couldn't say that. He couldn't even — I mean, a guy who lies every day repeatedly for a living couldn't go to that particular lie.

GLENN: We're showing pictures — on the TV network we're showing pictures of this ambassador and she's standing at like the Emmys. We've got — she says you won an Emmy.

PAT: Here's the tie — the Emmys are broadcast in Hungary.

GLENN: There you go.

PAT: You have cable in Budapest? You can watch her.

POLL: Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

Just one day after Hamas’s surprise attack on Israel, which left over 1,400 people Israelis dead, 34 different student groups from Harvard University wrote a joint statement pinning the blame of Hamas' terrorist attack on Israel. In the following days after publishing this callous statement, these students staged a walkout and rallied in support of the Palestinians. As Glenn has discussed, this is not an isolated event, and campuses across the country have hosted similar rallies where antisemitic jargon like "we don't want no Jew state" and "globalize the intifada" is freely spewed.

Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

While the Universities have not officially backed any of these rallies or student groups that organized them, they haven't stopped them either, which raises the question: should they? On one hand, these are American students in American Universities, who are protected by the First Amendment. On the other hand, history tells us how dangerous antisemitism is if left unchecked; and what of the rights of Jewish students to be safe on the campuses they pay to attend? Let us know what you think in the poll below:

POLL: What do YOU think Israel should do about Gaza?

Should Israel take over Gaza after defeating Hamas? This contentious historical question has resurfaced amid Israel's retaliatory airstrikes in Gaza following Hamas' terror attacks, which resulted in the greatest death of Jews since the Holocaust. Biden and the global elites have warned Israel against occupation of the Palestinian territory. When asked on 60 Minutes if he would support the Israeli occupation of Gaza, Biden said, “I think it would be a big mistake.” Today Glenn responded to Biden’s answer: “I don't think it's a mistake to occupy."

This has been a long-standing, polarizing issue that is now more relevant than ever, and we want to hear YOUR thoughts. Let us know in the poll below:

Would you support an Israeli occupation of Gaza?

Do you think the Israeli airstrikes in Gaza are justified?

Do you think a two-state solution is still possible?

Funding IRAN?! Here are the TOP 5 reasons Joe Biden should be IMPEACHED

On September 12th, the House announced an official impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden with allegations of abuse of power, obstruction, and corruption. Naturally, the media quickly jumped to the President’s aid claiming that “there is no evidence to support these claims” and that the whole affair is a witch hunt.

If you’ve been listening to Glenn, you know that this is simply not the case. Biden has been committing impeachment-worthy deeds before he even stepped foot into the Oval Office—there’s no shortage of evidence to justify this inquiry. Here are 5 scathing reasons why Biden should be impeached:

He was responsible for the Afghanistan withdrawal disaster.

The Biden administration began with the US's disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan. Under his watch, Biden left thousands of US citizens and allies stranded in the Taliban's hostile regime. Countless Afghan allies have been murdered by the Taliban due to the Biden administration's negligence.

He was involved with Hunter Biden's illicit foreign business dealings.

There is clear evidence that Joe Biden was more than aware of his son Hunter's foreign business dealings. From suspicious money laundering through the Biden family's accounts to Joe's involvement with important business meetings within Hunter's company, there is mounting evidence to warrant an impeachment inquiry.

He lied about his involvement with Hunter's business dealings.

Not only did Biden involve himself with his son's less-than-legal foreign business ventures, but he lied to the American people about it too, claiming he had NO KNOWLEDGE of what was going on.

He failed to protect the Southern border, and actively made it worse.

Biden singlehandedly turned the Southern border into the worst illegal immigration crisis in US history. He reversed many policies set in place by the Trump administration, resulting in 2.3 million illegal immigrants flooding into the US under his watch, a historic high.

Biden reversed the Trump-era policy that halted all funds going into Iran. The Wall Street Journal revealed the smoking-gun evidence proving that Iran trained AND funded Hamas before its gruesome terror attacks against Israel. Moreover, shortly before the attacks, the Biden administration unfroze $6 BILLION dollars of Iran's assets as a part of a prisoner swap. On top of this, Biden resumed $200 million worth of "humanitarian aid" to Gaza that Trump had ended—because the money was being used to buy weapons for Hamas.

From groceries to house prices, everything seems to get more expensive, and you can thank Biden for that. Glenn recently exposed the truth about 'Bidenomics' and the havoc it has wrought on the American economy. Here are five economic milestones during the Biden administration that expose the glaring track record of "Bidenomics:"

In July 2022, the inflation rate hit 9.1 percent, a 40-year record high.

In June 2022, gas hit an all time record high of $5 a gallon for the national average.

61 percent of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck as of this September.

Interest rates reached a 15-year high at 5.25 percent and are still increasing.

Americans have $1 trillion in collective credit card debt, in part due to food/staple pieces being very high.
