'Crumbs'? Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Nancy Pelosi Rip $1,000 Bonuses

Would $1,000 make a difference in your life?

Most of America would probably say yes, but Democratic leaders are claiming that bonuses of as much as $1,000 are still just a “crumb” that won’t go far.

On today’s show, Glenn and Stu listened to some startling quotes from former Democratic Party chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, criticizing the GOP tax reform bill.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has also slammed the bonuses corporations are giving to their employees after the tax bill passed, calling them “crumbs” compared to what the “fat cats” get.

“Frankly, if you look at the bonuses, which I haven’t heard of a corporate bonus more than $1,000 so far,” Wasserman Schultz said. “Which by the way is taxed, so it’s not $1,000. … I’m not sure that $1,000 (which is taxed, taxable) goes very far for almost anyone.”

So … is she also saying the government taxes every day Americans too much? What a concept.

GLENN: So let's go to Nancy Pelosi on how meaningless trickle-down economics really is, when your company gives you a bonus of $1,000 or a raise. Here's Nancy Pelosi.

VOICE: In a way where everyone benefits.

STU: Deeper voice than I thought.

NANCY: So here's the thing, there's a cartoon that I just love. There's a middle -- a little mousetrap. So a little piece of cheese on there. And there's a mouse. That's called the middle class. And they give you this little crumb. And around it, there's fat cats. They look more like elephants, but anyway, around there. And that's the thing. We get this little thing, and we get this big bonanza. You get the crumb, we get the banquet.

GLENN: So you get the -- so there's fat cats surrounding this little mousetrap, and they've just put a little crumb. But they're going to eat you. They get the bonanza. Is that the way you view 1,000-dollar bonus?

STU: If you were to get $1,000 right now, what does that mean to you? Is it meaningless? Is it a crumb? Is it nothing?

GLENN: Can I tell you something?

STU: Is it too small to make a difference for anyone, as Debbie Wasserman Schultz said.

GLENN: Can I tell you something? I have a truck here that I drive every day. And it is really bouncy. Because I don't put stuff in the back. You know, I drive it to and from work most of the time.

STU: Because you're a poser, right?

GLENN: I'm a poser. You're in Texas. So, anyway --

STU: You have a truck, but you don't use it as a truck. you're posing as if you're a Texan, when you're not is basically what you were saying.

GLENN: I didn't say I was a Texan. I said I lived --

STU: People have to view you as if you would have a truck, though you don't use it as a truck. So therefore you're posing as someone who actually needs a truck. And that was just all admitted to by you.

GLENN: I like trucks. I have a farm where I use trucks, just not this one here. This one, when it's, you know, a few years old will go to the farm and just get destroyed. So I have a truck.

Can I move on?

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: All right. So it's really -- the suspension on it is a truck.

STU: It's not built to be a luxury car.

GLENN: Correct. So for $2,000, they said, you can -- you know, most people here, they just have the suspension change. You know, and that way it rides a little softer.

I -- I turn down the suspension, because it's $2,000 to make my ride a little smoother. I can handle it. $2,000.

STU: That's a lot of money.

GLENN: That's a lot of money.

STU: For really anybody.


STU: You know, you can go on a vacation. You can -- you can -- I mean, we were just talking about the washing machines I think it was last hour. You know, that's a washing machine, right? It's a big deal. $1,000 is a lot of money.

GLENN: A really big deal.

STU: Yeah. It's a Christmas. You know, for your kids. If you have a bunch of kids, it's a whole Christmas. It's a big deal.

GLENN: Not to Democrats. They think it's a crumb. They think it's a scam. And especially after the government takes taxes out of that bonus. That's their freaking quote.

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.

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."
