Pat Commits Chocolate Blasphemy

Willy Wonka, he's not, but is co-host Pat Gray an actual American?

"You don't like Coca-Cola and you don't like Hershey," Glenn said. "You are not an American if you don't like Hershey chocolate."

Friday on The Glenn Beck Program, co-host Stu Burguiere brought in a basket of Easter candy to sample new flavors on the market.

"You know why all this new candy is coming out?" Glenn asked.

Because it's delicious? Because of capitalism? No, people's tastes are changing. It seems folks these days have a taste for upscale, designer chocolate.

"You've always been that low-rent, Hershey chocolate guy," Pat said.

"Well, excuse me if I don't want to pay $26 for a bar of chocolate," Glenn countered. "Hershey chocolate is not low-rent. It's American classic milk chocolate."

"It is not good," Pat said.

"Oh, my gosh. I am so sick and tired of hearing you and your elitist European chocolate snobbery," Glenn said.

"He's pretty fired up about Hershey, isn't he?" Pat laughed.

GLENN: Happy Good Friday. And good Easter coming. The boys brought in some big Easter basket. Jeffy has been trying to gnaw on the basket for a while, but it's actually wicker. You can't really eat the basket.

JEFFY: I know. But Stu said there's grass in there.

STU: There is. There's these new Twizzlers. Grass Twizzlers. Look at this -- if you're watching on --

GLENN: Ick.

STU: -- on the TV.

GLENN: Green Twizzlers?

STU: They're green Twizzlers, and they're thin like grass. And they're green apple.

PAT: They're delicious.

GLENN: Are they really?

PAT: Uh-huh. It's good.

GLENN: You know why all this new candy is coming out?

PAT: No. Because it's delicious?

JEFFY: Because of capitalism.

GLENN: Because -- no, people's tastes are changing. And, like, a regular Hershey chocolate bar is not selling like it used to.

STU: Well, there's so many options now. Right?

GLENN: Yeah, like the really upscale -- like, are you eating a Cadbury egg thing?

PAT: Yeah.

JEFFY: Those are good.

PAT: The egg cookie.

STU: I like them too. Cadbury egg cookies now they have.

PAT: So good.

JEFFY: Those were great.

PAT: Oh, my gosh. They're delicious.

JEFFY: What?

GLENN: Cadbury chocolate. Ick.

PAT: They're great. Are you kidding me? Cadbury is awesome.

STU: With the cream inside.

GLENN: No, it's awful.

PAT: It is not.

GLENN: It's awful.

PAT: You've always been that low-rent, Hershey chocolate guy. It's not good.

GLENN: Hershey chocolate is not low-rent.

PAT: Low-rent. It is.

GLENN: No, it's not. It's American classic milk chocolate.

JEFFY: Yes.

PAT: It is not good.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. I am so sick and tired of hearing you and your elitist European chocolate snobbery.

JEFFY: Boy, that is true there, Pat. That is true.

PAT: It's low-rent Hershey chocolate. That's why it's not selling anymore because it sucks. People's tastes are discerning now. And there's other stuff available.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. I could not let this go. This chocolate blasphemy. I cannot let it go. He said -- are you kidding me?

PAT: No, I'm not kidding you.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

PAT: We've had the Hershey Nestle thing before. We've had that discussion.

GLENN: I know. And Nestle is a European, sucky chocolate.

PAT: I think Nestle -- isn't that American? Nestle is not American?

GLENN: No.

PAT: It's not that good anymore anyway.

(laughter)

GLENN: No.

STU: We actually got a bunch of the new Easter candies, for science reasons on Pat & Stu yesterday.

GLENN: Oh, is that what it is?

PAT: Yeah, it was for science.

STU: White chocolate strawberry shortcake M&M's.

JEFFY: Those were good. Those are real good.

GLENN: I'm willing to try that. I'm willing to try that.

STU: Hang on. Try that out. We have Easter grass candy because this is perfect for like --

GLENN: That sounds awful.

PAT: No, it's good.

GLENN: Ooh, the strawberry shortcake M&M's, that's really good.

STU: Really good, aren't they? The grass things, they look like strands of grass for your Easter basket.

PAT: But it tastes like a candy apple.

STU: Yeah. A green apple.

We have Nerds jellybeans. You into that sort of thing?

GLENN: I don't know what Nerds are.

STU: What? You don't know what nerds are? What do you mean you don't know what they are?

GLENN: I don't know what they are.

JEFFY: Are you from America?

STU: They're fruity candies.

JEFFY: These Starburst jelly beans I have here --

GLENN: Are those good?

JEFFY: Good. It's a shame they're all the way over here.

STU: They have cupcake chocolates, which are --

PAT: The cupcake chocolates are really good.

STU: You like those?

PAT: Uh-huh.

STU: They look like cupcakes, but they're actually chocolates. Got -- what Glenn was talking about -- the Cadbury cream egg cookie, so it tastes like a Cadbury cream egg, but it's a cookie. I thought they were delicious.

PAT: Delicious. I can't believe you don't like Cadbury chocolate.

Do you like Dove? Dove chocolate?

GLENN: Yeah, I love Dove chocolate.

PAT: Dove chocolate is really good.

GLENN: I'll take Dove chocolate.

STU: What about Reese's? Because they've got mini -- not Easter bunnies, but Reester bunnies.

GLENN: Reester bunnies?

JEFFY: Yeah, those are pretty good.

Yeah, the other package we had yesterday that's gone now is the chocolate with the peanut butter.

PAT: The, what?

JEFFY: The chocolate with the peanut butter. The Easter bunny that had the dipping container with peanut butter in it.

STU: Oh, yeah.

PAT: It's essentially a do-it-yourself peanut butter bar.

JEFFY: It was good.

STU: It came with a container of peanut butter.

GLENN: That's the new high fashion?

JEFFY: It was really good.

PAT: I guess so.

GLENN: Here, you can do it yourself.

PAT: I guess so. Because it came with this little container of peanut butter, and you had to dip the chocolate in the peanut butter.

STU: Right. And it was weird because you had to break the bunny's body parts off to dip in the peanut butter. So just break off an ear and dunk it in the peanut butter, and then eat it like an animal. It was kind of nice.

JEFFY: They had the chocolate bunny perforated though. It was good. It was perfect. It's easy.

GLENN: I don't like chocolate bunnies either. It's bad chocolate.

STU: Well, not if it's good chocolate.

PAT: Not if it's Cadbury.

STU: It's not the bunny shape that makes the chocolate.

JEFFY: Not if it's dipped in peanut butter.

STU: This is the sort of stuff, Glenn --

PAT: And you know who else is good is Russell Stover.

JEFFY: Russell Stover is not that good.

PAT: It's delicious.

GLENN: No, it's not.

JEFFY: It's not that good.

PAT: Yes, it is. Yes, it is.

GLENN: You have the --

PAT: It is. It's so much better than Hershey. I mean, if you had a Hershey bunny, no, it's inedible.

JEFFY: Oh, my gosh.

GLENN: Are you kidding me?

PAT: You're not going to eat that. Nobody is going to eat that.

JEFFY: You lost the crowd now.

GLENN: You are absolutely serious too.

PAT: I am.

GLENN: Hershey is the best chocolate made in America.

PAT: It's not even close. It's not even close.

STU: All the high-end chocolate they have out there, you think Hershey -- I mean, I like Hershey. It's fine.

GLENN: Hershey's milk chocolate? Yes.

PAT: No.

STU: No.

GLENN: You know what you guys are, traitors to the nation.

JEFFY: Yes.

GLENN: I hope President Trump executes both of you.

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck discussed the recent news that a primary source for the Steele Dossier — the document on which much of the Trump-Russia collusion investigation was based — had been investigated by the FBI for contacts with suspected Russian spies. Glenn also shared several previously unpublished texts and emails from FBI agents have recently been released.

According to a letter sent by Attorney General William Barr to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Thursday, the FBI knew early on that the research compiled by ex-British intelligence agent Christopher Steele relied on a "Primary Sub-source" that had been "the subject of an FBI counterintelligence investigation from 2009 to 2011 that assessed his or her contacts with suspected Russian intelligence officers" — but still used it to obtain warrants to spy on former Trump campaign-aide Carter Page.

But, it gets even worse. Now, new leaked texts and communications from FBI agents within the department at the time of the entire Russian collusion effort were disclosed in federal court filings on Thursday. According to the court documents, FBI agents purchased "professional liability insurance" to protect themselves in January 2017, just weeks before Donald Trump was inaugurated president, because they were concerned about the agency's potentially illegal activity during the Russia collusion investigation.

"Trump was right," one FBI employee wrote in response to then-President-elect Trump's Jan 3, 2017 tweet which read: "The 'Intelligence' briefing on so-called 'Russian hacking' was delayed until Friday, perhaps more time needed to build a case. Very strange!"

Chief researcher Jason Buttrill joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to discuss an "explosive" new report released Wednesday by Senate Republicans on Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's son, Hunter Biden, and the Ukrainian energy company Burisma.

Among other serious allegations, the 87-page report claims that "Hunter Biden received a $3.5 million wire transfer from Elena Baturina, the wife of the former mayor of Moscow," and the richest woman in Russia.

"The transactions discussed [in the report] are designed to illustrate the depth and extent of some questionable financial transactions. Moreover, the financial transactions illustrate serious counterintelligence and extortion concerns relating to Hunter Biden and his family," the report stated.

Jason suggested the Senate's findings provide additional evidence to back allegations of a money-laundering scheme, which Glenn detailed in a four-part series about Biden's shady connections to Ukraine. Learn more on this here.

"Laundered money is very hard to track to its finality," Jason explained. "I'm sure the Biden camp is really hoping that it just looks suspicious, but [investigators] don't ever find the eventual end point. But, if they do – and it's possible they already have – this is going to be explosive, very explosive."

Revolutions rarely happen overnight. The Left started laying the groundwork for November 3, 2020, the moment Hillary Clinton had to concede the 2016 election to Donald Trump. It was always solely about getting rid of President Trump — and there's a playbook for that.

Last week, Glenn Beck showed you the "Seven Pillars of Color Revolution" written by a former U.S. diplomat, which are the conditions that must be in place for a successful Eastern European-style "Color Revolution." The left seems to be pushing for a Color Revolution this election because they are using the exact same playbook.

In part two of this series, Glenn peels back the layers on the first four of these Color Revolution pillars to show you how they work and what the end goal is. And he reveals one of the architects of the playbook – a Color Revolution specialist, former ambassador, and former Obama administration official who is one of the key masterminds of this revolution.

Joining Glenn is political campaign veteran and BlazeTV host Steve Deace who says the polls that claim Biden is leading the race "are trash." We're being set up to believe that if Trump wins in spite of the polls, it must be an invalid election.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.
