Couple Sank Boat They Sold Everything to Buy. The Internet Wants to Give Them a Second Chance.

It’s a story that could only happen in 2018.

Nikki Walsh, 24, and her boyfriend, Tanner Broadwell, 26, dreamed of leaving behind a normal life and sailing the Caribbean. They sold everything they could and bought a 28-foot sailboat for $5,000.

Unfortunately, the couple didn’t have sailing experience prior to buying the boat, and they didn’t buy insurance. Broadwell’s father taught the pair to sail, but it wasn’t enough to help them navigate the foggy night when the sailboat hit something in the water and capsized.

Walsh and Broadwell aren’t ready to “give up on their dreams,” and apparently, people don’t mind helping them. The couple’s GoFundMe page has raised more than $14,800 so far to finance the couple’s sailing dream, surpassing their $10K goal.

Glenn and Stu talked about this unbelievable millennial story on today’s show.

GLENN: So tonight you don't want to miss TV. There is something really wrong. (?) and we're going to use just the facts from the New York Times. Of course not yesterday's New York Times. We're going to tie a few stories together for the New York Times because they refuse to tie them together for themselves. So we will show you that tonight at 5 o'clock with the rest of the media, would like to pretend this isn't the article you're looking for.

STU: And then at 5:30, the news and why it matters. The brand-new (?) please check that out. (?) Sarah Gonzalez.

GLENN: So some millennials got into a boat.

STU: They did. This is a very sad show today.

GLENN: Sounds like a joke.

STU: First of all, we sound (?) disappointed by the experience.

GLENN: That was a really sad --

STU: That was -- (?)

GLENN: They did -- you know, meanwhile, stuff. They weren't beheading people.

STU: Some millennials decided they wanted to leave the world behind. Because how can we live our lives when we're working most of the day and you have to pay so much just to live.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

STU: So purchase (?) a boat that is 50 years old. They sold all their possessions. Bought this boat. Decided to embark on their journey. There was one problem. Neither of them had learned how to sail. They also didn't buy insurance.

GLENN: Okay. All right.

STU: Perhaps, (?)

GLENN: The nice thing about boats, Stu. Once you buy it, you don't have to (?)

STU: No maintenance costs. There's no effort at all.

GLENN: Those are easy. Those are great.

STU: Well, they capsized (?) to Key West. They were pulled into a channel. Ran aground on a sandbar. Either were hurt. They did save their dog. And they tried to get the internet to pay for their new boat. They needed $10,000 to salvage their boat. And they still don't know how to sail. They still have not (?) 13,108 I couldn't even dollars because the rest of society is so stupid.

GLENN: Misses me off. Oh, my gosh. Oh, my gosh. We'll see you tonight at 5:00.

Far-left elites are using COVID to ‘reset’ America to socialism

Both Governor Newsom (California) and Governor Whitmer (Michigan) currently are being challenged by their state courts and governments for tyrannical policies issued during the COVID pandemic. And that's GREAT news because the 'Great Reset' continues to be pushed by far-left elites around the world…and Biden's team is in full support. Glenn explains how the Great Reset — a plan issued by the World Economic Forum — aims to use our current pandemic as a means to an end; they'll use COVID as an excuse to push 'stakeholder capitalism,' something similar to the economic system used today in China or the one used in 1930s Germany. Listen, as Glenn explains the TERRIFYING details to their plan…

Megyn Kelly UNCENSORED: It's Not Time to Unify, It's Time to FIGHT | Ep 88

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show." Now, Megyn and Glenn break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, Leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner … and is Fox News finished? Megyn and Glenn reminisce on their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with Donald Trump) and also give a look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. And the best takeaway from her time at NBC? "Jane Fonda was an ass."

How the downfall of socialist Yugoslavia is STRIKINGLY similar to America today

Glenn shares a now-viral video of a woman from Yugoslavia, who says she wants to warn Americans about what could become of our free nation soon. She details the history of her country and explains how leaders there used different tactics and phases to implement socialism so that they could gain total control. And, terrifyingly, the phases she describes are STRIKINGLY similar to the events and changes we've experienced in America over the past year.

Glenn SNAPS over Dem corruption: ‘It’s NOT OVER!’

Glenn has had enough of exposing scandal after scandal, just for everyone to look the other way: Benghazi, Hillary Clinton's emails, Joe and Hunter Biden's dealings in Ukraine and China...the list goes on, but no consequences are ever paid. So while the mainstream media has called the election for Joe Biden, and insists no one can question it, Glenn gives a rallying cry to conservatives. Many of the over 71 million people who voted for President Trump are split between frustration and an urge to do something. The multiple allegations of election fraud are largely out of our hands, and Donald Trump's legal team must be allowed to go through the process to ensure our voting systems are fair. But that doesn't mean we have to sit on our hands.
