‘I am Cecil’: Glenn dresses up like a lion during live radio show

The dentist who killed Cecil the lion in Zimbabwe was back at work the day after Labor Day, despite a heightened outcry to extradite him for slaying the beloved animal.

Demonstrators posted a sign on the door of his home with the phrase, "Rot in Hell." They marched outside his clinic holding signs with phrases like "Animals are not Trophies" and "I am Cecil" while chanting, "We will not falter! Prosecute Walter!"

Glenn took an opportunity during radio Tuesday to question the priorities of these demonstrators. To help drive home his point, he brought out his own lion skin rug and put it on like a cloak.

Watch the memorable moment below.

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors.

PAT: Did you see the dentist that killed Cecil the lion going back to work today?

STU: Oh, no, how dare he.

GLENN: We're allowing him to work on people's teeth?

PAT: Can you believe that? Instead of heading off to prison where he should spend the rest of his natural life --

GLENN: Prison?

STU: It should be two weeks until we execute him.

GLENN: Thank you. Now you're thinking right. Two weeks. Why do we wait two weeks?

PAT: Right. He's actually going back to work to make a buttload of money. He said his patients were demanding it. After what, it's been a month, two months? How long has it been? They're still protesting outside his house.

GLENN: Outside of his house.

PAT: They posted on his door a huge sign that said "rot in hell." One of the women was holding a sign that said "I am Cecil." What does that mean? You're a lion. What does that mean? You are Cecil. What does that mean?

GLENN: I am Cecil. You know what I would have done honestly -- at this point, it would be so difficult -- because I have the lion rug right over there.

In fact, would somebody go get this lion's rug, will you? Somebody go get the -- it's Judah. My lion rug has a name too. It's Judah.

STU: Oh, yeah?

PAT: Judah the lion. Okay. It's not Cecil?

GLENN: No, it's not Cecil.

PAT: You haven't renamed it in honor?

GLENN: He was cute too. He was cuddly. He was playing with a ball of yarn when I shot him between the eyes.

PAT: Was he a national treasure though?

GLENN: He was a national treasure.

PAT: Was he.

GLENN: He was. I promised my son, I said, I'm going to Africa. I'm going to hunt a lion. I'm going to bring home a lion. Well, I was only on the ground for like 12 hours. So we went to a place. And actually they met us along the way. We called this taxidermy shop. We're like, do you guys happen to have a lion? And I made sure this one died of natural causes.

JEFFY: Of course.

GLENN: No, seriously.

JEFFY: Of course, it did.

GLENN: You can't find a -- now, if this were me and I had those protestors and they were protesting in front of my house, I would have a hard time -- will you hold it -- I would have a hard time --

PAT: This would be great.

GLENN: -- not coming to the front door like this --

PAT: Wearing the lion.

GLENN: -- and saying, hey, brr, kind of cold in here.

PAT: You think you're Cecil.

GLENN: Are you Cecil? Because he's Cecil too. He's now a coat.

PAT: Oh, man.

GLENN: Thanks, guys.

Wouldn't you have a hard just not wearing him, going to the door, and going, get over it?

PAT: Yeah. The priorities are so screwy.

STU: In case you're listening to the radio and you're like, oh, I wish I saw that. Believe me, you'll be seeing it on the internet today.

GLENN: It will be everywhere unfortunately.

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:

Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests? 

Would you feel safe if your child attended a University that allowed pro-Hamas protests?

Is pro-Hamas rhetoric protected by the First Amendment?

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.
