Dear Kim Jong-un, You've Got to Get Yourself a Snappy Uniform

Sometimes a little levity is needed --- even at the threat of nuclear war. Over the weekend, North Korean leader Kim Jong-un paraded his military in a show of force.

“If the USA is planning a military attack against us we will react with a nuclear pre-emptive strike by our own style and method,” Jong-un said.

The parade featured a failed missile launch and an unusually dressed leader.

"Kim Jong-un was wearing an actual suit like we would wear in the West," Co-host Pat Gray said Tuesday on The Glenn Beck Program.

Glenn offered a different description.

"No, it was like a Pavarotti jacket for thinner people," he said. "I mean, if you're going to be a dictator, you've got to get yourself a snappy uniform."

GLENN: Yeah. I know. I think anybody who has the military parades -- if you have -- this is a sign that you just need to be annihilated as a -- as a government: If you have military parades, big pictures of your leaders on the sides of buildings, if your troops march in goose step, I mean, that's like -- I mean, that's a sign that you're --

STU: Right.

PAT: The higher you goose step, the more evil you are.

GLENN: The more evil you are.

PAT: That's a good rule of thumb.

GLENN: I saw the parade over the weekend, and they're all goose-stepping. And I'm like, clearly evil. These people should all be wiped out.

PAT: Yeah. And then for the first time ever, that I've ever seen, Kim Jong-un was wearing an actual suit like we would wear in the West.

GLENN: No. No.

PAT: A tie and jacket. It was pretty close.

GLENN: No, it was like a Pavarotti jacket for thinner people.

(chuckling)

PAT: Yes. And that's not a good look for him.

GLENN: No, it's not. But his pants are like --

JEFFY: They're giant navy bell bottoms or something.

GLENN: They're not bell bottoms. If you look at them -- they're like the size of the waste at the top of the thigh all the way down.

JEFFY: All the way down. Yeah.

GLENN: It's bizarre. And everything on him looks like, you need a tailor. You don't have a tailor?

PAT: Well, he's got such a weird body shape that I think it's tough to fit it with clothes.

STU: Yeah, I think that's a good --

JEFFY: But he's the rural, right?

PAT: Yeah, I know.

GLENN: Who was it I heard the other day that said he's -- I think it was one of you guys that say he's kind of in between of, you know, being fat and giving up.

JEFFY: Yeah, yeah. Yeah.

PAT: He does.

STU: Well, given his life circumstances, right? Because like Jeffy, for example, might be a little overweight.

PAT: Overweight. Uh-huh.

STU: However, he's limited by his circumstances.

JEFFY: Well, and I'm athletically overweight, unlike Kim Jong-un.

STU: No.

PAT: Yeah, except for no.

STU: But he's limited by his circumstances in that we don't pay him a salary. He doesn't have any income.

PAT: Right. There's not much he can do.

STU: He's basically homeless.

GLENN: Whoa, whoa, whoa. This is the opposite. That's what makes you work out.

If you're Kim Jong-un and everybody has to say, oh, dear leader, you are smoking hot --

PAT: You are sexy.

GLENN: You are sexy. Then why work out?

STU: But this is my point. There's nothing in Kim Jong-un's life that would lead him to be in shape. Right?

GLENN: Oh, so you're saying he should be fatter?

STU: I think he should be fatter. Because why would you stop at -- what is he? What is he, Jeffy, 350?

JEFFY: No. He's only like 2 feet tall.

PAT: 5-8.

JEFFY: Probably 270.

PAT: Maybe 280.

JEFFY: Yeah, 280. He might --

GLENN: No, I don't think he's that heavy.

JEFFY: At one point when he had knee surgery and stuff, he probably pushed three.

PAT: And there's not a lot of cool things you can wear when you're built like that. Right? So that's why he does the Nehru jacket.

GLENN: What is the deal with the Nehru jacket? Seriously.

PAT: He looks like he's the fifth member of Herman's Hermits in the 1960s.

GLENN: What is the deal with the -- seriously, with the -- all the Chinese leaders wear that.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: It was never a good look. It was never a good look.

JEFFY: But you get your hair cut like that and that jacket, that's a good look.

GLENN: Your comrade jacket.

PAT: Hillary Clinton thinks it's a good look. She wears it all the time. She's the only Western person to wear the Herman's Hermits outfit.

JEFFY: Yeah.

GLENN: And why doesn't this guy wear the uniform? I mean, if you're going to be a dictator, you've got to get yourself a snappy uniform.

PAT: His dad did, right?

JEFFY: Yeah.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: I think honestly -- because, again, I don't know what the uniform would look like on him. There's not a lot of military guys that are overweight.

JEFFY: Overweight.

GLENN: Göring.

STU: Yes. I said there's not a lot, not there wasn't one. There's not a lot. It's not common.

GLENN: Right.

STU: You can name him because he was fat.

GLENN: I mean, he was at trial for war crimes, they were looking and going, we can't hang this guy.

PAT: It's not going to hold him.

STU: No.

GLENN: How are we going to hang him? There's no way we can hang him. We've got to shoot this guy.

PAT: He's got the Jeffy problem.

GLENN: Yeah.

YOU will be RESPONSIBLE for loss of rights if you riot

A new poster is circulating social media, calling for a record-breaking armed protest to take place across America on Inauguration Day. Here's Glenn's advice for those considering attendance: DON'T GO. No matter who is responsible for the poster or for any possible future chaos that may take place, the far left and the media WILL blame Trump supporters regardless of the facts. And because of that, if you attend and partake in rioting, you WILL be responsible for the loss of our rights that will come as a result. Don't go. But, listen to this clip to find out what Glenn thinks you SHOULD do on Inauguration Day instead…

Can Frustrated Conservatives Learn from the Tea Party? | Matt Kibbe | Ep 92

The nation was shocked as the "Save America" rally in Washington, D.C., devolved into a siege of the U.S. Capitol. The day after, as heads were still spinning, Glenn sits down with Matt Kibbe, host of BlazeTV's "Kibbe on Liberty," to look at what led to this: Woke authoritarianism is in power, lockdowns are unending, and the Left has finally found out how to weaponize fear. The media is all too happy to watch the country burn, as long as the Left is holding the torch. But Glenn and Matt remember the lessons learned from the Tea Party, Martin Luther King Jr., and other movements that found success through peace. Conservatives and libertarians must find a path forward so we have more 9-12 marches, fewer stormings of the Capitol, and real change from those who believe they rule over us.
