Mike Opelka: Has Botox Seeped Into Nancy Pelosi's Brain?

What's going on with Nancy Pelosi? Friday morning on MSNBC's Morning Joe, Pelosi had trouble answering questions and finding the right words.

"I know I may be a little obsessed with Nancy Pelosi and the things she says, but I'm a believer that Botox has crept into her brain and gotten into the part of the brain that controls speech and sometimes it makes her frump around," Mike Opelka said, filling in for Glenn on radio.

Pelosi said some strange things during her morning interview, notably that she told the president to get some sleep and called the U.S.'s recent military action in Syria an "invasion."

"First of all, we didn't invade Syria. We sent 60 Tomahawk cruise missiles, 59 of which hit the targets. We didn't invade Syria. Careful of the Botox . . . it's starting to freeze upstairs," Opelka said.

MIKE: So interesting thing about Pelosi. Listen to her speech patterns. I know I may be a little obsessed with Nancy Pelosi and the thing she says. But I'm a believer that Botox has crept into her brain and got into the part of the brain that controls speech and sometimes it makes her frump around. But when she's not ready to answer a question, she sometimes repeats the question back at the person, and she did that just now with Scarborough. But she feels comfortable in this environment. She feels comfortable at MSNBC. It's kind of like a home-court advantage. It's kind of like sitting around the house with friends. Because she's not going to get any tough questions. But Pelosi said some really weird stuff this morning. She talked about Comey. She went into what she believes is going to be enough of a push to get an independent investigation. And ultimately, although she didn't say it this morning, at least not when I was listening, ultimately, Pelosi and every Democrat is not going to rest until they get one of two things, maybe both things. They want Donald Trump's tax returns. They're still not giving up on that. They are not going to stop pushing Trump until we see his tax returns. We really don't know who he's in bed with. So they want those tax returns. They're not giving up. They'll get them, now that he's in office, but just for the time that he's here. So the past tax returns, still not happening. And the other thing they want is his impeachment. They want Trump out. And, again, I just think we need to remind these crazy progressive people. If you get rid of Trump, you don't get a do over. Not as Rosie O'Donnell wanted. Remember, rosy said can't we just put in John McCain as another president and have another election? No, Nancy -- no, rosy, that's not how it works. She actually wanted that. But if you impeach Trump, you get president Pence. Do you guys really want that? Do you Uber liberals really want that? I don't think so.

So be careful what you wish for, Nancy Pelosi. Maxine Waters. Chuck Schumer. And all the rest. But Pelosi was talking about the president this morning with MSNBC, and she got into a really strange area. Listen to this.

VOICE: Besides telling the president not to tweet, if he came to you and said I have this problem with Russia and all of these investigations, I really do want to get back to the people's business, what would you advise him to do?

PELOSI: What I have advised him to do. Go to sleep.

MIKE: Interesting. Nancy Pelosi said I have advised him to do this. Go to sleep. That was a question from Halperin. And he pressed on this and the question continued.

VOICE: Get some sleep.

PELOSI: Yes. Bring yourself to a place where there's --

VOICE: You said that to him directly? You said that to him?

PELOSI: Well, he called me the night of the Syria invasion --

MIKE: First of all, we didn't invade Syria. We sent 60 tomahawk cruise missiles, 59 of which hit the targets. We didn't invade Syria. Careful of the Botox. It's starting to freeze upstairs.

So, first of all, interesting to see that despite all the partisan politics, all the accusations that Donald Trump doesn't know what he's doing and doesn't know how politics works. Remember, Paul Ryan said that yesterday. He's still learning the job. He's still new here. Trump knew enough to call the minority leader in the House of Representatives as he was launching those missiles, so we know he made that personal call to her late at night. It continues.

PELOSI: The Syria invasion, I have to go into the conversation was late at night. It was like at midnight well after it was all finished. He was going on and on, and I was, like, why don't you go to sleep. I think that --

MIKE: I don't think she told the president to go to sleep. If you notice Nancy Pelosi speech patterns. When she's really confident, she speaks like this. She's very forceful, she's confident in her phrasing. And when she's stretching the truth, she's like this. I told the president it was late at night, and I asked him to get some sleep. So she throws it away. Listen to that piece again because she indicates -- I think she's trying to back up her story here, but I don't think that happened.

PELOSI: He was going on and on, and it was like midnight. And I was, like, why don't you go to sleep. I think that there's something not -- more sleep might be a solution for him.

VOICE: And just to expand on that --

MIKE: So Pelosi tried to get into something there, and she stopped herself. She said I think there's something -- and then she stops and says more sleep might be beneficial to multiple when we all more sleep might be beneficial to him. And Scarborough went or to talk about how the fact that the president bounces around the White House late at night. Yeah, well, his family's not there. Not yet, anyway. We'll get into that coming up. That topic of the president bouncing around the White House and Nancy Pelosi claiming she would tell him to get more sleep did not escape Mike Barnicle, aptly named guy.

Mike Barnicle who asked a question about Pelosi's assessment of the president's health. Last time I checked, was Nancy Pelosi a doctor? No. Did Nancy Pelosi hang out with the president all the time? Does she witness him? Is she out on the golf course with him? No. And yet, she gave me this really strange answer.

VOICE: Moments ago, are you concerned about the president's health?

PELOSI: I think his family should be concerned about his health.

MIKE: What is that? First of all, there's a pregnant pause there. Barnacle asks the question and listen to the pregnant pause, and then let's dive into this answer.

VOICE: Are you concerned about the president's health?

PELOSI: I think his family should be concerned about his health. But the fact is is that this is hopefully not reparable. He is the President of the United States.

MIKE: Wait a minute. Freudian slip, anybody? They're talking about the testimony of Jim Comey. They're talking about the things that Trump said and Pelosi said I hope this is not repairable.

We're talking about the President of the United States. She meant to say I'm hoping this is not irreparable. She actually -- they stopped her and they're, like, wait a minute, what did you just say? Even the morning Joe crew went hold on a second, Nancy.

VOICE: You mean you hope it is reparable.

PELOSI: Yeah, yeah, yeah.

VOICE: Yeah, yeah, yeah.

PELOSI: Irreparable.

VOICE: Yes. Exactly.

VOICE: Hoping perhaps there is an impeachment.

VOICE: No. No.

PELOSI: Look I was on ethics for seven years. You're only allowed to be six, but they put me on . . . it's about the facts and the law.

MIKE: Hold on a second. What did Nancy Pelosi just say. You want to talk about irony of ironies? She said, look, I was on ethics, meaning the ethics committee for seven years. You're only supposed to be on for six years, but I stayed another year.

So anybody notice the irony which the ethics committee that has a six-year limit to it that Nancy violated that limit and went to a seventh year? Juxtoprogressivism. Do as I say, not as I do. Thank you, Nancy Pelosi.

Who Is More Evil: Government or Facebook? | Robby Soave | Ep 120

The Left and Right agree: Social media companies like Facebook are abusing their power — whether through censorship or harmful, groupthink-creating algorithms. But is the solution really more censorship and regulation, like government fearmongers and leftist "whistleblowers" have insisted? Glenn sits down with the senior editor at Reason, Robby Soave, who has a much more refreshing solution laid out in his latest book, "Tech Panic: Why We Shouldn't Fear Facebook and the Future." Politicians have weaponized the fear we have about social media. So, maybe we should be looking at the positives. Glenn and Robby take a look at the (very familiar) history of tech panic and censorship, balance the consequences of changing Section 230, and expose the real threat to the future of free speech: Progressive tyranny entrenched in the old school media.

'HARMFUL CONTENT': How King Biden Is KILLING the Constitution

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.

Why it’s time for Dr. Fauci to STOP DOING INTERVIEWS!

Dr. Fauci was at it again over the weekend, this time declaring during a CBS News interview that it's 'too soon to tell' if Americans can safely gather with family this Christmas season. But the main issue isn't necessarily Fauci's crazy statement, Stu explains to Glenn. Rather, it's Fauci doing TV interviews at all. The left will support anything he says and the right will call him an idiot no matter what. He no longer has the ability to sway minds, so why is he on television more than Glenn is?!

If the Deep State Can Ruin Gen. Flynn's Life, It Can Ruin Yours | Ep 119

Donald Trump famously tweeted, "They're not after me, they're after you. I'm just in the way." General Michael Flynn was also in the way, apparently, because the deep state has definitely gone after him, on every front. He's been hounded by the Department of Justice, the FBI, the Democrat Party, and the media. But the hounding didn't stop there. Chase Bank canceled accounts because he was "a reputational risk." Meanwhile, the real problems of our country go unchecked. Glenn and Gen. Flynn talk about all of it and more: The immigration crisis in Del Rio, the opioid crisis, the impact of critical race theory, the threat of radical Islamism, the corruption of the media, the persecution of Brett Kavanaugh, the incompetence of Biden, the tragedy of Afghanistan, the hypocrisy of Gen. Milley. And Russia. It's is all we heard for the last six years. But as details emerge, we see the truth. Gen. Flynn is very clear: "I didn't lie to the FBI." And yet, Gen. Flynn still believes in the American people to save the country.
