A Glenn Beck Tragedy in Chocolate

Hershey's or Cadbury chocolate? That is the question. While some may prefer the English-born Cadbury chocolate egg, Glenn is an all-American Hershey's man through and through. In fact, he's never even tried a Cadbury chocolate egg. Despite his co-hosts efforts (and in light of the strict diet he's following), Glenn refused the Cadbury chocolate confections during radio on Wednesday. Once a Hershey's man, always a Hershey's man.

Enjoy the complimentary clip or read the transcript for details.

STU: We discovered something tragic today in that Glenn Beck, who says he believes in American culture --

JEFFY: Oh, my gosh.

STU: -- for some reason has never tried a Cadbury cream egg, which seems impossible.

JEFFY: What!

PAT: Preposterous. It's preposterous.

GLENN: No. The cream sounds -- is this the one with the white and yellow in it?

STU: Yeah, the fake yolk inside.

PAT: Yeah, deliciousty. It's deliciousness.

JEFFY: The caramel one.

GLENN: No. No. That looks just gross.

STU: It's so good.

PAT: Oh, the caramel ones --

JEFFY: The caramel ones are the best.

GLENN: Yeah, the caramel --

PAT: We need to send whoever got these back for the caramel ones.

JEFFY: We should have asked for the caramel ones.

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: First of all, I don't like Cadbury chocolate.

PAT: What! Oh, you are nuts.

GLENN: No. I know that you -- I know that you think I'm a low-class chocolate eater because I love Hershey's chocolate.

PAT: You love Hershey's.

STU: It's okay to love Hershey's chocolate. But also you would try other chocolates. This is a national treasure.

GLENN: Yeah, I would. I know. I'm not going to -- I got to get back to my strict diet. And I'm an all-or-nothing guy. If I break it here, I'll break it.

JEFFY: Glenn, Glenn.

STU: This is essentially an egg.

GLENN: No, it's not an egg.

JEFFY: This is for the show. This is for the show. You know how many diets I've lost and gone off of, thanks to these shows on this network?

GLENN: I know. You would be in a hospital. You would be anorexic if it wasn't for this show. I know, Jeffy.

PAT: Glenn, this is filled with protein. It's an egg. It's nothing, but protein.

GLENN: Okay. Open it up. That looks so gross.

STU: It's supposed to look like an egg, except it's really just sugary creamy goodness.

Okay. So we also have the Cadbury cream egg cookie. (?) I win $10,000.

JEFFY: Walmart salad.

GLENN: Did you hear about the Walmart salad with the bat in it?

PAT: That was done on purpose.

GLENN: Oh, yeah. Had to be. But can you imagine -- can you imagine opening up a salad bag and having a bat in it?

PAT: No. I think I would take it back to the store.

GLENN: You think so?

PAT: I think so. I think so. I'm going out on a limb there, but I think I take it back to the store.

GLENN: So I would want to own the salad company.

PAT: Yeah. I'll tell you this --

STU: So they would give you some extra protein.

PAT: I tell you this, I would ask for my 1.97 back.

GLENN: Okay. So you find a spider in it. Okay. You're not going to -- a bat. How did you miss a bat?

PAT: That's weird.

JEFFY: I don't know. I might get a little upset about a spider too.

STU: Oh, my God, these Cadbury cream egg cookies are so delicious. Oh, my God.

JEFFY: They are so good. The eggs are great too. Glenn. Glenn.

STU: A little yolk coloring.

GLENN: Yeah, no, it looks like you're taking a fried egg and then dipped it in chocolate. That does not sound good.

STU: Ooh, we should try that next. That sounds delicious.

Bill O'Reilly: How corrupt media twisted Joe Biden Ukraine scandal onto Trump

Bill O'Reilly gives his take on whether or not President Trump DID promise or threaten the President of Ukraine for dirt on Joe Biden, and whether or not the action is grounds for impeachment. But O'Reilly explains that either way, the media has demonstrated its corruptness yet again by manipulating the story away from a scandal for Joe and Hunter, and towards a potential, rumored wrongdoing by Donald Trump.

The Fed, banks printing money to 'prevent' trouble: Recession WILL come soon

Glenn discusses the current state of the economy with author of "Zero Hour," Harry Dent. He says the federal reserve is still funding big banks daily to increase their excess reserve, signaling that something is wrong with the system. Dent says the banks printed money back in the 1930s to climb out of the Great Depression, which only created an aftershock that was even worse. Banks and the Fed are doing the same thing today, so will the coming economic crisis be worse than the 2008 recession? Economist Dent says it's possible, and that it could come as early as 2020.

Lessons from Bill and Monica: Trump, Biden, Obama, Ukraine, and corruption

Glenn says there's an important lesson we can all learn looking back on the Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky scandal: corruption should matter, no matter which political party is to blame. So why are Democrats and the media trying desperately to shame President Trump for alleged corrupt action, but ignoring Joe Biden's clear intention to help his son, Hunter, profit through foreign policy in the Ukraine? How do we fix such a double standard?
