The List of Federal Agencies on Trump's 'Buh Bye' List

Glenn listed on radio today many of the federal agencies on the chopping block under President Trump's proposed budget. A few notables include the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the National Endowment for the Arts, the little-known Overseas Private Investment Corporation and --- Glenn's personal favorite --- The Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars.

Enjoy the complimentary clip above or read the transcript below for details.

A list of some of the federal agencies that are going to be eliminated under Trump. I can't imagine this happening. But here are the agencies.

STU: This is his proposed budget. Congress hasn't even looked at this yet.

GLENN: Yeah. The African Development Foundation. Why are we developing Africa? We should be developing --

STU: A lot of the foreign aid stuff is in here.

GLENN: Yeah. The Appalachian Regional Commission. What does this commission do in Appalachia?

The Chemical Safety Board. That's the only one with the name that I thought, "Maybe we should look at that one."

The Corporation for National and Community Service. Buh-bye. The Corporation for Public Broadcasting.

STU: Hmm.

PAT: Buh-bye.

GLENN: Buh-bye. A, there should be no doubt -- Sesame Street makes more money than any other show.

PAT: Right. Big Bird is big business. And he always has been.

GLENN: Always has been. Every kid has Sesame Street toys. There's no reason why we're paying for that.

PAT: Yeah, that can self-fund.

GLENN: And now in the world where NPR is the number one podcasts. They're number one in many, many cities on radio.

PAT: They're certainly top five.

GLENN: Their -- their television shows are now being sold all around the world. Amazon, you know, Hulu, Netflix. Carrying all of these shows. And they're partnering with the BBC and everything else. There is no reason -- they make enough money. There is no reason why we are funding them still. None whatsoever.

The Denali Commission, which I'm sure people in Alaska are happy about. The Delta Regional Authority. The Institute of Museum and Library Services.

Again, the library thing we probably might want to -- I mean, there's not a lot of money in the library thing. And I'd hate to see libraries go, but I don't know what they do. The Interamerican Foundation.

STU: We actually have this thing called the internet now, which is pretty amazing. You can actually see all this material on these little boxes.

GLENN: No, I know. I know. I'd like to see what the Library Foundation does. Like, for instance, I'm totally school with the Library of Congress. Totally cool with that.

STU: Yes, that's true.

GLENN: The US Trade and Development Agency. The Legal Services Corporation. The National Endowment for the Arts.

STU: Ah, yes. Thank you.

PAT: That needs to go.

GLENN: That would be --

JEFFY: What about people who paint?

GLENN: I paint. Nobody is giving me a dime! I paint.

JEFFY: But --

PAT: Yeah, but think of how beautiful your paintings could be if you received half a million dollars.

JEFFY: Thank you. They're not as near as they could be.

STU: Wouldn't you be better?

PAT: Wouldn't you be better? Seriously, you would.

STU: You would be a better painter. That's for sure.

GLENN: I would be. Maybe I should apply.

The National Endowment for the Arts. The National Endowment for the Humanities. Oh. The Neighborhood Reinvestment Corporation. The Northern Border Regional Commission. The Overseas Private Investment Corporation.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: That has "private" and "overseas" in the name. What the hell is this?

JEFFY: I know.

GLENN: The United States Institute of Peace. Oh. The United States Interagency Council on Homelessness. And my favorite: The Woodrow International Center for Scholars.

JEFFY: Nice. Buh-bye.

GLENN: Hang on just a -- turn on John's mic.

JOHN: Clearly, that was an outreach to you, Glenn.

GLENN: It was. That was the olive branch, and I'll take that olive branch. I am so pro-Trump right now.

The Singularity? Elon Musk unveils plans to merge human brains with AI

Yesterday, while the rest of America obsessed over President Trump's tweets, Elon Musk announced plans to merge humans with computers using thread-like polymer electrodes implanted directly into the human brain. Musk said that Neuralink, his brain-AI interface startup, will allow humans to "achieve a symbiosis with artificial intelligence" as early as next year. Watch this clip to get more details.
