Feminist Lena Dunham Sells Dresses to Benefit Planned Parenthood, Returns Bothersome Shelter Dog

Actress, humanitarian and animal lover Lena Dunham recently shared a very, very sad story. Her beloved dog Lamby, whom she adopted from a shelter in 2013, just had too many behavioral issues for Dunham to handle because of previous abuse Lamby suffered as a puppy. Poor Lamby. So she decided to give him up. Only, the shelter refutes Dunham's claim that Lamby suffered abuse.

Robert Vasquez, who runs the shelter, contradicted Dunham's claim that three previous owners had abused Lamby.

"Apparently, the shelter wants to know where Ms. Dunham got the information," Glenn said Thursday on radio.

Apparently, Lamby was the picture perfect, mild-mannered, well-behaved dog with no sign of a bad temperament or any kind of aggression. Now, what could have possibly changed that after being in the loving company of Ms. Dunham?

Difficult family pets are not the only thing the feminist is on board with discarding --- because it's all about convenience. The humanitarian also plans to sell off some of her clothing to benefit Planned Parenthood.

"That's a special thing, that slaughtering babies is that important to her," Co-host Pat Gray noted.

"The shirt off her back," Co-host Stu Burguiere chimed in.

In reality, she's doing the world a favor.

"She's cleaning out her closet. She's a celebrity who has a lot of clothes. She's listening to Oprah Winfrey who says, "If you don't wear something in a year, you just have to get rid of it because you're never going to wear it." So she's just getting rid of her clothes. Instead of bagging them up and bringing them to Goodwill, she's grabbing headlines because she's donating them to Planned Parenthood," Glenn said. "It's a publicity stunt."

GLENN: Okay. Lena Dunham. Should we start with the clothes to Planned Parenthood? Do we need to know anymore about -- she's selling her clothes to benefit Planned Parenthood.

PAT: And that's a special thing, that slaughtering babies is that important to her.

STU: The shirt off her back.

PAT: Yeah, giving them the shirt off her back.

GLENN: No. Come on. Here's what she's doing -- she's selling -- she's cleaning out her closet. She's a celebrity who has a lot of clothes. She's listening to Oprah Winfrey who says, "If you don't wear something in a year, you just have to get rid of it because you're never going to wear it." So she's just getting rid of her clothes. Instead of bagging them up and bringing them to Goodwill, she's grabbing headlines because she's donating them to Planned Parenthood. Oh.

STU: It is smart on her behalf probably.

GLENN: Yeah, but that's all it is: It's a publicity stunt.

STU: Yes. And I think we can all come together as a nation and say the last thing in the world we want to encourage is her having less clothing.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Oh, yeah. I would like that --

STU: Please increase the amount of clothing. I would donate -- we should all donate clothing to her so she hopefully would put some of it on.

JEFFY: Why the hate?

GLENN: I always thought I was going to hoard all my clothes for my future daughter, and now I understand, especially being a woman with reproductive illness, that I may end up with an adopted son. I may end up with a daughter who doesn't identify with her gender at birth. You can't --

STU: All the problems.

GLENN: You can't live for the future that does not exist yet. I have to take all this good fashion and fortune, and I have to spread it.

STU: That really is a publicity stunt, isn't it?

GLENN: Oh, my gosh. Okay.

STU: And she's looking for some good publicity, because there have been some stories about her lately that have not been so positive.

GLENN: Yeah, yeah. Like this one? Try this one.

Lena Dunham wanted her fans to know what had happened to her dog Lamby. Who got a little dog Lamby? Who's got a little dog Lamby?

PAT: I think Lena does.

GLENN: Ms. Dunham. Lamby. As she adopted. And she's like, "It's like a little Lamby."

STU: That's cute.

GLENN: She adopted Lamby in 2013. The cream-colored mutt stopped making appearances in social media feeds, replaced it seemed by two fresh-faced poodles, Susan and Karen.

Okay. You went from Lamby. Who's a little Lamby? To Agnes?

Well, I'm really not their owner. You can't really own Susan or Karen.

STU: She's using gender-specific names. I mean, who knows how these things identify.

PAT: Exactly right.

GLENN: Amen. So on June 21st, Ms. Dunham disclosed on Instagram that Lamby suffered -- suffered terrible -- I can barely say it. Suffered terrible abuse as a puppy. And that because of that abuse, had resulted in behavioral problems. So she had to let Lamby go.

STU: And Lamby was like 65 big publicity stunts earlier. Where she made such a big deal about this stupid dog that she adopted. And it was her saving animals. And she adopted it from a no-kill shelter.

GLENN: Oh, yeah. No. Lamby was going to be killed.

STU: And she saved the life of this dog.

GLENN: Right. Well, the shelter saved the life of the dog. Because it's a no-kill shelter. It's not going to let little Lamby go.

Little Lamby is special. Little Lamby is no different than you. Little Lamby is just as smart as any human. Little Lamby is not looking for an owner. Is looking for a loving home. And Lena Dunham was there, with her clothes, to adopt little Lamby.

But little Lamby had been abused. Had been abused so many times by three -- by three -- not one, not two, but three owners.

And little Lamby who was so cute in all those social media posts and got little Lena and little Lamby all snuggling up next to each other for all those media posts and all that attention and all the great things that she did to help little Lamby, it must have been horrible, the abuse.

Well, actually Robert Vasquez, the -- the guy who runs the shelter, The Barc. B-A-R-C.

STU: Oh, I get it. Because it's like a barking noise.

PAT: It's adorable.

GLENN: He works at the doggie shelter where Ms. Lena got little Lamby. Said, quote, when she adopted a dog from us, it wasn't crazy. I mean, I have pictures of the dog loving on Lena and her mom, which is weird because dogs don't usually do that if it was abused.

Apparently, the shelter wants to know where Ms. Dunham got the information of the three owners. Quote, when the dog was here at Barc, where he lived with us for just under a month when he was adopted, he was a very mild-mannered, very well-behaved dog. There was no sign of bad temperament or any kind of aggression.

JEFFY: Hmm.

GLENN: Hmm.

PAT: So little Lamby hadn't been abused by three owners?

GLENN: Well -- well, the -- the place where she adopted the dog -- had no bark.

JEFFY: Barc.

STU: Oh, because it's like the dog noise, guys.

(laughter)

GLENN: Oh, man. That kills me every time.

Barc has no information about three owners. Has no information about abuse from three owners.

STU: No. Uh-uh.

GLENN: But that's because they never got to know thought Lamby.

STU: Uh-huh.

GLENN: Little Lamby has been talking to Lena because dogs can talk too. Dogs are people too. And Lena has been listening and hearing the horror stories of little Lamby. And now she got Susan and Karen who also -- not a lot of people know this, Susan and Karen are both dog psychiatrists. And Susan had Lamby lay down on the little doggie couch there. Karen was taking notes. And Susan was talking to little Lamby and said, "How does this make you feel when you have to eat your food like some oppressed caged animal, eating your food off the floor?" It's not even really a dish. It's a -- it's just a stupid bowl. But not a bowl that she eats in. Have her eat her ice cream out of that bowl. No, she won't do it.

How does that make you feel, Lamby? And that's when Lamby broke down and said, "I've had three owners who abused me so badly, that I act out sometimes. And I pee on the carpet. And I bite Lena. It's not because I hate her. It's because I've been abused."

(chuckling)

STU: Is it possible the dog made up the story to get out of that house?

GLENN: If you were a dog, wouldn't you?

STU: Yes. Bring me back. Give me to the kill shelter this time.

(laughter)

JEFFY: She keep walking around naked. She's got no clothes on. I got to get out of here.

(laughter)

GLENN: The first few nights, I had him, it was just the two of us. He's perfect, she wrote. Quiet, limp as a sack of laundry, Lamby kisses me softly every time he has the chance. Lamby's behavior shortly after: Had trouble being alone. He barked at night.

That's never happened.

JEFFY: Never.

GLENN: Never happened. A dog that barks at night? That's never happened.

PAT: Not with a normal dog.

GLENN: No.

JEFFY: No.

GLENN: That's why people don't get it at the shelter named Barc.

STU: Oh, it's like the dog noise.

GLENN: Well, a dog noise that dogs never make. They never really make that. Only bad dogs bark.

(laughter)

Only dogs that deserve to be gassed, because they've been oppressed for so long.

There's your Lena Dunham update. Probably the update not just for the day, but for the rest of our lives.

In the final days before the 2020 election, President Donald Trump is gaining among black voters, particularly men, because his record of accomplishments "speaks for itself" and the "façade" that President Trump is a racist "just doesn't ring true," argued sports columnist Jason Whitlock on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday.

Jason, who recently interviewed the president at the White House for OutKick.com, shared his thoughts on why he believes many black Americans — notably celebrities such as Kanye West, Ice Cube, and 50 Cent — are breaking from the "façade" that President Trump is a "flaming racist."

"I really believe the facts are starting to speak for themselves, and that Donald Trump's record of accomplishments, particularly as it relates to African Americans, speaks for itself," Jason told Glenn. "He actually has a record to stand on, unlike even Barack Obama. When [Obama] was president, I don't think he had much of a record to stand on, in terms of, 'Hey, what did he actually deliver for African Americans?' President Trump has things he can stand on and, you know, beyond that I think black people understand when he starts talking about black unemployment rate. And America's unemployment rate. And then, when you add in for black men, the façade we've been putting on [President Trump] … you know, this whole thing that he's some flaming racist, it just doesn't ring true."

Jason suggested that Trump's fearlessness, unabashed masculinity, and record of keeping his promises resonates with men in the black community. He also weighed in on how media and social media's bias plays a huge role in convincing people to hate President Trump while ignoring Antifa and others on the Left.

"I keep explaining to people, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, they're some of the most secular places on earth. And we've reduced everyone to a tweet, that we disagree with," he added.

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:

Imagine sometime next year, getting called before HUWAC – the House Un-Woke Activities Committee.

"Are you or have you ever been a member of the un-woke?"

Something like that is not as far-fetched as you might think.

Last week, Robert Reich, the former Secretary of Labor during the Clinton administration, now a UC Berkeley professor, tweeted this:

Since the 1970s, there have been dozens of "Truth Commissions" around the world like the kind Robert Reich wants in America. Most of these have been set up in Africa and Latin America. Usually it happens in countries after a civil war, or where there's been a regime change – a dictator is finally overthrown, and a commission is set up to address atrocities that happened under the dictator. Or, as in the commissions in East Germany and Czechoslovakia, atrocities under communism. Or, in the most famous example, South Africa's Truth and Reconciliation commission addressed the decades of apartheid that ravaged that nation.

These commissions usually conclude with an official final report. These commissions and reports have served as a means of governments trying to close a dark chapter of their country's history, or provide emotional catharsis, as a way to generally move on. Sometimes it kind of works for people, most of the time it leaves people clamoring for more justice.

Here's how one professor described truth commissions in an article in The Conversation last year. He wrote:

The goal of a truth commission… is to hold public hearings to establish the scale and impact of a past injustice, typically involving wide-scale human rights abuses, and make it part of the permanent, unassailable public record. Truth commissions also officially recognize victims and perpetrators in an effort to move beyond the painful past… Some have been used cynically as tools for governments to legitimize themselves by pretending they have dealt with painful history when they have only kicked the can down the road.

See, this is the problem with a lot of "Truth" commissions – they are inherently political. Even if you trust your government and give them all the benefit of the doubt in the world that their Truth commission is trying to do the right thing, it is ALWAYS going to be political. Because these truth commissions are never set up by those who have LOST power in government. They're always established by those who have WON power.

The Deputy Executive Director of the International Center for Transitional Justice says one of the main points in these Truth commissions is that "the victims become protagonists."

A Department of Anti-racism is entirely within the realm of possibility.

So, who are the victims in Robert Reich's America? People like him, members of the far-Left who had to endure the atrocities of four years of a president with different political ideas. What an injustice. I mean, the left's suffering during the Trump administration is almost on the level of apartheid or genocide – so we totally need a Truth commission.

There have been lots of calls for the U.S. to have its own Truth and Reconciliation commission, especially around racial injustice.

This past June, Democratic Congresswoman Barbara Lee of California introduced legislation to establish the " United States Commission on Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation."

Ibram X. Kendi – the high priest of anti-racism, and author of Target's current favorite book " Antiracist Baby" – proposes a Constitutional anti-racism amendment. This amendment would:

establish and permanently fund the Department of Anti-racism (DOA) comprised of formally trained experts on racism and no political appointees. The DOA would be responsible for pre-clearing all local, state and federal public policies to ensure they won't yield racial inequity, monitor those policies, investigate private racist policies when racial inequity surfaces, and monitor public officials for expressions of racist ideas. The DOA would be empowered with disciplinary tools to wield over and against policymakers and public officials who do not voluntarily change their racist policy and ideas.

If you think that is far-fetched, you haven't been paying attention to the Left's growing radicalism. In a Joe Biden-Kamala Harris administration, a Department of Anti-racism is entirely within the realm of possibility. And of course, such a DOA would never stop at policing government.

We're in a dangerous, precarious moment in our history. Given the events of 2020, should Democrats gain the White House, the Senate, and the House, how many commissions will be in our future? They will suddenly have plenty of political capital to drag the nation through years of commission hearings.

And the Left's form of justice is never satisfied. You think it will stop at a T&R commission on race? MSNBC's Chris Hayes tweeted this month about the need for a commission to deal with Americans who are skeptical about wearing masks:

Or what about a Truth commission on religion? I mean, look at those reckless churches spreading Covid this year. Or this would be a big one – a T&R commission on climate change deniers.

The Left is highly selective when it comes to truth. That's why they are the very last group you want in charge of anything with "Truth and Reconciliation" in the title.

This is one of the most incredibly frustrating things about the Left in America today. The Left insists there is no such thing as absolute truth, while simultaneously insisting there are certain approved truths that are undeniable.

So, you can't question "Science" – even though that's pretty much what every great scientist in history did.

You can't question racism as the explanation for all of existence – because, well, just because.

You can't question third-party "Fact-checkers" – because the powers that be, mainly Big Tech right now, have decided they are the Truth referees and you have to trust what they say because they're using certified external fact-checkers. They just forgot to tell you that they actually fund these third-party fact-checkers. It's like if McDonald's told you to trust third-party health inspectors that they were paying for.

The Left thinks it has a monopoly on Truth. They're the enlightened ones, because they've had the correct instruction, they're privy to the actual facts. It's psychotic arrogance. If you don't buy what they're selling, even if you're just skeptical of it, it's because you either don't have the facts, you willingly deny the facts, or you're simply incapable of grasping the truth because you're blinded by your raging racism problem. It's most likely the racism problem.

The Left never learns from its own preaching. For the past 60-plus years they've decried the House Un-American Activities Committee for trying to root out communists, getting people canceled, ruining Hollywood careers, etcetera. But a HUAC-type committee is precisely what Robert Reich is describing and many on the Left want. It's not enough for Trump to be voted out of office. Americans who helped put him there must be punished. They don't want reconciliation, they want retribution. Because the Left doesn't simply loathe Donald Trump, the Left loathes YOU.

President Donald Trump's performance at last night's final presidential debate was "brilliant" and "the best he's ever done," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Friday.

Glenn described the moments he thought President Trump came across as "sincere," "kind," and "well-informed," as well as Joe Biden's biggest downfalls for of the night — from his big statement on wanting to eliminate the oil industry to his unsurprising gaffes as the debate neared the end. But, the question remains: was Trump's "brilliant performance" enough to win the election?

Watch the video be low to get Glenn's take on the final debate before the November 3 election:
