Glenn got his first taste of the Kardashians, and it was an eye opener.
"I've never watched the Kardashians before. I know that comes as a surprise to many people in this audience. You'd think I'm all up with the Kardashians," Glenn said Tuesday on his radio program. "For this to be a big show in America shows how stupid we are," Glenn said.
Glenn shared a conversation from the Kardashian's visit to Cuba earlier this year, prefacing it with a bit of history.
"Cuba went through a Communist Revolution and has had a dictator since the late 1950s. A dictator that slaughtered the artists. Slaughtered the homosexuals. Slaughtered the poets. Slaughtered musicians. Slaughtered anybody who stood up against. Has prisons and torture cells for anybody who disagrees . . . you'll just be disappeared at night. The economy has absolutely collapsed. And people have lived in abject poverty since 1960," Glenn said.
The conversation revealed what Glenn fears is the average intelligence of the American populace.
VOICE: Did you have fun?
VOICE: I had the best time.
VOICE: I called it on our way in.
VOICE: Would you come back here?
VOICE: Yeah, I would.
VOICE: I love it.
VOICE: I would.
VOICE: I love it. I love -- I hope they just keep this 1950's vibe.
"Oh, they will. They will keep the 1950's vibe," Co-host Pat Gray said.
"Like it's a choice," Glenn said.
The Kardashians enjoyed that 1950's vibe courtesy of crushing communism that stopped economic development.
"She treats it like it's a renaissance fair," Co-host Stu Burguiere said. "Like they're reenacting the Civil War. They've all dressed up in the 1950s and put in 1950s cars to give you that theme of what it felt like."
"It's like people who are living in mud huts in Somalia, and the Kardashians go over and go, 'I love this authentic African feel that they're doing right now.'" Glenn said.
It wasn't just digging the 1950s vibe that made the Kardashians seem so out of touch. They also really, really loved not having cell phones for three days.
"The reason why you don't have a cell phone is because they don't have the technology," Glenn said.
Since the 1950s, the Cuban people have lived without advancements in technology and medicine and basic freedoms.
"People who live there say the only place you can even survive is Havana. Everywhere else is a brutal struggle to get through day-to-day life," Stu said. "And, you know, the idea that they would go down there, say I love the '50's vibe, thank God I don't have to have a cell phone, and it's perfect here . . . how incredibly insulting it is to the people that struggled through this regime."
