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.

As the Senate prepares for former President Trump's second impeachment trial, many are asking whether it's constitutional to try a president after leaving office. Alan Dershowitz, lawyer and host of the of "The Dershow," joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to talk about the legal battles Trump still faces.

Dershowitz said he believes the Senate doesn't have the authority to convict Trump, now that he's a private citizen again, and thus can't use impeachment to bar him from running for office again.

"The Constitution says the purpose of impeachment is to remove somebody. He [Trump] is out of office. There's nothing left to do.
It doesn't say you can impeach him to disqualify him for the future. It says, if you remove him you can then add disqualification, but you can't just impeach somebody to disqualify them," Dershowitz said.

"The Senate can't try ordinary citizens. So once you're an ordinary citizen, you get tried only in the courts, not in the Senate. So it's clearly unconstitutional," he added.

Dershowitz, who served on Trump's legal team during the first impeachment trial, also discussed whether he thinks Trump is legally (or even just ethically) responsible for the Capitol riot earlier this month, and whether those engaging in violence could be considered "domestic terrorists."

A new, shocking CBS News poll shows that the majority of Americans believe they're facing a new enemy: other Americans.

More than two-thirds of poll respondents said they believe democracy in the U.S. is "threatened," and 54% said "other people in America" are the "biggest threat to the American way of life," rather than economic factors, viruses, natural disasters, or foreign actors.

Will it be possible to unite our nation with statistics like that? On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and Stu discussed the poll numbers and what they mean for our future.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."
