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.

‘Both miraculous and horrendous’: Glenn Beck gives emotional update on Afghanistan rescue

The conditions in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule — for Americans, allies, Christians, women and more — continue to deteriorate, and the people there continue to plead that we will not forget them. On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck gave an emotional update on current evacuation efforts, including the tragic story of one girl — an American passport holder — who was not rescued in time.

"I have a pit in my stomach like I haven't had in a while. What is happening in Afghanistan is both miraculous and horrendous," Glenn began. "What's going on right now one of the most amazing things I've ever personally witnessed — the evacuation of Americans, those [Afghans] who helped us, Christians that are dying, women that are under incredible conditions. I see things that I can't show you. I see the pleadings from people who are in safe houses, 'Please, don't forget us.' I see what they're being sent by the Taliban.

"If I die today, my entire life will have been worth it for what you have helped get done, in just the last three weeks. You have saved well over 5,000 people," he continued.

Fighting back tears, Glenn added, "I ask that you pray for those in the Middle East, that are in the midst of doing work, that a Moses-style miracle will happen. ... There are several people that are in dire need of medical care. Friday, we told you — along with the congressman from Oklahoma [Rep. Markwayne Mullin] who had just returned — [about] a father and two daughters that were blue passport Americans, and a mother who had a permanent residence, a Green Card. The daughter was very ill. And they thought, that if we couldn't get her out of there, that she would lose her legs. I got a call on Saturday morning, that we were too late, that she didn't lose her legs. She lost her life, waiting. There are now two Americans, instead of three."

Glenn showered his audience with gratitude, repeating that "well over 5000" lives have already been saved because of their incredible generosity, but lamented that there are still thousands more people yet to be saved.

Economic TAILSPIN? THIS may be why The Fed stopped publishing GDP reports

Branches of The Federal Reserve Bank recently announced — while nobody was paying attention — their decisions to stop publishing GDP forecast reports that the financial industry 'has used forever,' Glenn says. But now new updates from the Atlanta Fed may provide clues as to why these reports have been suspended. Those clues hint at a coming 'economic tailspin,' Glenn says. And, 'When you know something is going to cause the economy to go into a tailspin,' Glenn explains, 'you can either just say, well, that's the truth…or you can just hide it. You can just not publish it.'
