Cheetos Challenge: Who Can Get Their Face as Orange as Trump's?

Why does John Boehner seem to be Team Trump? Pat Gray, co-host of The Glenn Beck Program, shared an interesting theory on Thursday.

"Speaking of Boehner, has anybody else noticed that maybe Boehner is all about Trump because they're both of the same race? This could be a racial issue. They're both orange people," Pat said.

Intrigued by the notion, Glenn wondered about another well-known group of oranges.

"Do we have an Oompa Loompa count? Do we know? Do we know how the Oompa Loompas have voted?" Glenn asked.

Following a lively debate on whether Trump achieves his orangeness from a tanning bed or a snack food (as both co-host Stu Burguiere and commentator Ben Shapiro believe), Glenn issued a challenge.

"I need a few big, giant, family-sized bags of Cheetos, and then I need three big bowls...four big bowls. And I want each of us to see if we can get our face close to the face of Donald Trump," Glenn said. "Let's see if we can get any of us to look like Donald Trump. Okay? That's tomorrow's show."

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

PAT: Speaking of Boehner, has anybody else noticed that maybe Boehner is all about Trump because they're both of the same race? This could be a racial issue. They're both orange people. I wonder if that had something to do with it --

GLENN: I never thought of that.

PAT: They are both orange.

GLENN: Do we have an Oompa Loompa count? Do we know? Do we know how the Oompa Loompas have voted?

PAT: I haven't heard, but we need to look into that because this could be --

GLENN: I think Donald Trump uses a tanning bed.

PAT: They both use the same --

JEFFY: Yeah, they're both owned by big tanning bed.

PAT: I don't know if --

STU: I don't know.

GLENN: Tanning beds, they don't make you orange. They make you red.

JEFFY: Yeah, but the wipe-on or spray-on tan makes you orange.

GLENN: Spray-on, yeah, that will make you orange. I know. It makes you orange.

STU: I will say, I tend to go more the Ben Shapiro direction on this and say that I believe that probably both of them, but certainly Donald Trump just smears his face with Cheeto dust before every interview. What do you think the odds are? He takes a bag of Cheetos. Smashes it down, so it turns into a powder, mashes it onto his face --

GLENN: That is tomorrow's show. I need a few big, giant, family-sized bags of Cheetos, and then I need three big bowls. And I need four big bowls. And I want each of us to see if we can get our face close to the face of Donald Trump.

(laughter)

STU: I like it.

GLENN: Let's see if we can get any of us to look like Donald Trump. Okay? That's tomorrow's show.

STU: I like it. Okay. I think we should do it towards the end of the show. Because the recovery of that might be problematic.

GLENN: I don't know. I mean, we could look great. Donald Trump looks great, doesn't he?

PAT: Oh.

STU: I think we need to have those little tanning sunglasses. Because the eyes will be --

PAT: Yeah, the eyes need to look like raccoons. Orange raccoons. The eyes are totally white.

GLENN: So we'd probably have to have goggles of some sort that would stay on in a bellow of Cheetos.

STU: I think goggles will work. You put them around your head. We can get those at Walmart or something. Getting close --

JEFFY: The fallout from that, Stu is right -- that's why you should probably go first, Glenn.

PAT: And maybe last. I think you should be first and last.

STU: Second, third, and fourth.

PAT: Yeah. Uh-huh.

STU: Okay.

JEFFY: Just to make sure.

GLENN: You guys are the worst.

STU: No. But --

GLENN: I carry all the heavy water on this show.

PAT: You really do.

GLENN: Now I have to carry the Cheeto dust on my face.

STU: Well, your legs do. They carry the --

(laughter)

PAT: See what he did there. He's saying that you're overweight.

STU: Overweight.

GLENN: I didn't catch that.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere reacted to a recent Washington Post op-ed in which the author, Ron Charles, suggests that "as Confederate statues finally tumble across America, [and] television networks are marching through their catalogues looking to take down racially offensive content," perhaps the next items that should be up on the cancel-culture chopping block are "problematic books."

"Monuments celebrating racist traitors, which were erected to fabricate history and terrify black Americans, are not works of art that deserve our respect or preservation. Similarly, scenes of modern-day white comedians reenacting minstrel-show caricatures are not ironical interrogations of racism that we have to stomach any longer. But complex works of literature are large, they contain multitudes," Charles wrote.

He goes on to argue that "calibrating our Racism Detector to spot only a few obvious sins" is but an insidious source of self-satisfaction when compared to the process of critical debate on the values and intentions of history's literary legends.

"If cancel culture has a weakness, it's that it risks short-circuiting the process of critical engagement that leads to our enlightenment," Charles wrote. "Scanning videos for blackface or searching text files for the n-word is so much easier than contending with, say, the systemic tokenism of TV rom-coms or the unbearable whiteness of Jane Austen."

Could cancel culture really spiral all the way down to book burning? In the clip below, Glenn, Pat, and Stu agreed that this radical progressive movement is really about erasing America's history and overturning the foundation of our country. The fundamental transformation of America is happening now.

It's been a tough year, America. Our news media is inundating us with images of destruction, violence, and division in attempts not only to desecrate our nation, but to make us turn our backs on it. That's why now, more than ever, we need to take an up-close look at America's history to remember what it is we're fighting for and how to fight for it with practical action.

Join Glenn Beck, broadcasting from Standing Rock Ranch, as he takes us to Plymouth, Gettysburg, and Federal Hall on an important journey through America's remarkable history to inspire a brighter future. Glenn asks the hard questions of every American. Is this system worth saving? Is there a better way? Where do we go from here, and how do we answer those questions?

Featuring performances from the Millennial Choirs and Orchestras, David Osmond, a very special children's choir, and guests Bob Woodson, Tim Ballard, David Barton, Burgess Owens, Kathy Barnette, Anna Paulina Luna, and Tim Barton.

"Restoring Hope" has been a labor of love for Glenn and his team and tonight is the night! "Restoring the Covenant" was supposed to take place in Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Gettysburg and Washington D.C. but thanks to COVID-19, that plan had to be scrapped. "Restoring Hope" is what was left after having to scrap nearly two years of planning. The Herald Journal in Idaho detailed what the event was supposed to be and what it turned into. Check out the article below to get all the details.

Glenn Beck discusses patriotic, religious program filmed at Idaho ranch

On July 2, commentator Glenn Beck and his partners will issue a challenge from Beck's corner of Franklin County to anyone who will listen: "Learn the truth, commit to the truth, then act on the truth."

Over the last few weeks, he has brought about 1,000 people to his ranch to record different portions of the program that accompanies the challenge. On June 19, about 400 members of the Millennial Choir and Orchestra met at West Side High School before boarding WSSD buses to travel to a still spring-green section of Beck's ranch to record their portion of the program.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."
