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.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck sat down with chief researcher Jason Buttrill to go over two bombshell developments that have recently come to light regarding former Vice President Joe Biden's role in the 2016 dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

"Wow! Two huge stories dropped within about 24 hours of each other," Jason began. He went on to explain that a court ruling in Ukraine has just prompted an "actual criminal investigation against Joe Biden in Ukraine."

This stunning development coincided with the release of leaked phone conversations, which took place in late 2015 and early 2016, allegedly among then-Vice President Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Ukraine's former President Petro Poroshenko.

One of the audiotapes seems to confirm allegations of a quid pro quo between Biden and Poroshenko, with the later admitting that he asked Shokin to resign despite having no evidence of him "doing anything wrong" in exchange for a $1 billion loan guarantee.

"Poroshenko said, 'despite the fact that we didn't have any corruption charges on [Shokin], and we don't have any information about him doing something wrong, I asked him to resign,'" Jason explained. "But none of the Western media is pointing this out."

A recently declassified email, written by former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and sent herself on the day of President Donald Trump's inauguration, reveals the players involved in the origins of the Trump-Russia probe and "unmasking" of then-incoming National Security Adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn.

Rice's email details a meeting in the Oval Office on Jan 5, 2017, which included herself, former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, former Vice President Joe Biden, and former President Barack Obama. Acting Director of National Intelligence, Richard Grenell, fully declassified the email recently amid President Trump's repeated references to "Obamagate" and claims that Obama "used his last weeks in office to target incoming officials and sabotage the new administration."

On Glenn Beck's Wednesday night special, Glenn broke down the details of Rice's email and discussed what they reveal about the Obama administration officials involved in the Russia investigation's origins.

Watch the video clip below:

Fellow BlazeTV host, Mark Levin, joined Glenn Beck on his exclusive Friday episode of "GlennTV" to discuss why the declassified list of Obama administration officials who were aware of the details of Gen. Michael Flynn's wiretapped phone calls are so significant.

Glenn argued that Obama built a covert bureaucracy to "transform America" for a long time to come, and Gen. Flynn was targeted because he happened to know "where the bodies were buried", making him a threat to Obama's "secret legacy."

Levin agreed, noting the "shocking extent of the police state tactics" by the Obama administration. He recalled several scandalous happenings during Obama's "scandal free presidency," which nobody seems to remember.

Colleges and universities should be home to a lively and open debate about questions both current and timeless, independent from a political bias or rules that stifle speech. Unfortunately for students, speaking out about personal beliefs or challenging political dogma can be a dangerous undertaking. I experienced this firsthand as an undergraduate, and I'm fighting that trend now as an adjunct professor.

In 2013, Glenn Beck was one of the most listened to radio personalities in the world. For a college senior with hopes of working on policy and media, a job working for Glenn was a ticket to big things. I needed a foot in the door and hoped to tap into the alumni network at the small liberal arts school where I was an undergrad. When I met with a career services specialist in early March 2013 about possible alumni connections to Glenn Beck, she disdainfully told me: "Why would you want to work for someone like him?" That was the beginning and end of our conversation.

I was floored by her response, and sent an email to the school complaining that her behavior was inappropriate. Her personal opinions, political or otherwise, I argued, shouldn't play a role in the decision to help students.

That isn't the kind of response a student should hear when seeking guidance and help in kick starting their career. Regardless of the position, a career specialist or professors' opinion or belief shouldn't be a factor in whether the student deserves access to the alumni network and schools' resources.

Now, seven years later, I work full time for a law firm and part time as an adjunct teaching business to undergraduate students. The culture at colleges and universities seems to have gotten even worse, unfortunately, since I was an undergrad.

College is a time to explore, dream big and challenge assumptions.

I never want to see a student told they shouldn't pursue their goals, regardless of their personal or political beliefs. College is a time to explore, dream big and challenge assumptions. I never got access to the alumni network or schools' resources from the career services office.

Lucky for students in 2020, there are several legal organizations that help students protect their rights when an issue goes beyond what can be handled by an undergraduate facing tremendous pressure from a powerful academic institution. Organizations like Speech First and the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), for instance, are resources I wish I knew about at the time.

When I experienced mistreatment from my college, I spoke up and challenged the behavior by emailing the administration and explaining what happened. I received a letter from the career services specialist apologizing for the "unprofessional comment."

What she described in that apology as a "momentary lapse of good judgement" was anything but momentary. It was indicative of the larger battle for ideas that has been happening on college campuses across the country. In the past seven years, the pressure, mistreatment and oppression of free expression have only increased. Even right now, some are raising concerns that campus administrations are using the COVID-19 pandemic to limit free speech even further. Social distancing guidelines and crowd size may both be used to limit or refuse controversial speakers.

Students often feel pressure to conform to a college or university's wishes. If they don't, they could be expelled, fail a class or experience other retribution. The college holds all the cards. On most campuses, the burden of proof for guilt in student conduct hearings is "more likely than not," making it very difficult for students to stand up for their rights without legal help.

As an adjunct professor, every student who comes to me for help in finding purpose gets my full support and my active help — even if the students' goals run counter to mine. But I have learned something crucial in my time in this role: It's not the job of an educator to dictate a student's purpose in life. I'm meant to help them achieve their dreams, no matter what.
