Frank Caliendo give an update on his Glenn impresonation

Frank Caliendo

PAT: We have Frank on the phone, Frank Caliendo, famous comedian, impressionist, Fox network television star of Mad TV. Also you've seen him many, many times on Fox NFL Sunday. He's got his own Vegas show now, Frank Caliendo.

GLENN: I mean, you want to talk about overachiever.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: How you doing, Frank?

CALIENDO: Well, if it isn't Satan itself. How ya doing? How's everything doing? Because I got some things to say. Beelzebub, how you doing? What's going on there, huh? Lucifer himself.

PAT: (Laughing).

CALIENDO: How's it going? I'm sorry. I didn't mean to say something bad. Did I say something bad to you? What's going on? Let's see. What else? Mephistopheles. I've just been on Google looking these things up.

GLENN: I'm sitting in a theater because Frank was talking about — I'm sitting in a theater last week and sitting right hundred dollars me is, what's his name, James Gandolfini.

CALIENDO: You can call me Jimmy but only for the sake of the story.

GLENN: And I said, hey, Jim, we have a mutual friend and I shook his hand and he just looked at me and said, what is Satan doing here? And I was like, I don't know, Satan could use a few laughs. Is Satan around? I don't — oh, me? It was just really bizarre.

CALIENDO: The — the last time I talked to you, every once in a while I talk to Terry Bradshaw who I'm on the Fox show with and I said, hey, Terry, I did the Glenn Beck show. And Terry was like, I tell you what, I listened to Glenn Beck one time. I boarded up my windows, I hid underneath my bed and I built a bomb shelter, Frank!

GLENN: (Laughing). And? Is he still in there or is he —

CALIENDO: I tell you what, frank, I didn't build an exit. I forgot the exit. I built an entrance but I didn't think the exit — shouldn't that be the same door? I never thought of that, Frank. Yeah, the — you know, it's amazing. I was thinking about this. I was wondering, have you — you know, like you were just talking about there with the meat prices, was everything — has everything always been a conspiracy for you? Like you started in top — in top 40 radio, right?

GLENN: Right, yeah.

CALIENDO: Were you like at one point Milli Vanilli is destroying things as we know it!

PAT: Yes, I was with him when he said that.

GLENN: Yes, actually that's true.

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: And I stand by it.

PAT: (Laughing).

CALIENDO: What if they are lip syncing, what will this lead to? The next thing you know, it will turn out that Vanilla Ice grew up in suburbs of Dallas!

GLENN: (Laughing).

PAT: And he was right about that, too. Right about that, too.

CALIENDO: This segment brought to you by parachute pants. Parachute pants, just don't know when you'll fall out of the plane. I was — I've been at work, I told Pat I'm not really much further on the tone or the, you know, the voice. I don't know if I talked about this last time but a lot of different — you know, when you do an impression, sometimes you just have to hit the cadence of the person and say the right things.

GLENN: Right.

CALIENDO: It's like with William Shatner, people are always going captain's log, start date 911, whatever they doing. You know what I mean? But you could do it lower. How many people are doing a Christopher walk and some people talk low, some people talk high, but you get that. But with you it was that, I told you that little theory of the, you know, you get real intense about something and then take the breath and then talk, give a family anecdote or talk about Goldline and —

PAT: (Laughing).

CALIENDO: But then I was looking at the parallels and I was trying to find, you know, like I was looking at — I don't have this completely developed yet but, you know, you take somebody like Van Jones. Van, a vehicle, a vessel moving you somewhere. What are the first three letters in the word van? V A N. Vandalism! Vandalism! Van, vandalism, destroying someone's property! Jones, Jonesing for something! You want something really bad! I'm Jonesing for it! Van Jones, a communist. Break it down, what he wants to do. He very badly wants to drive us, drive us, van, destroy everything you and I stand for, America! He wants to destroy this country as we know it. Let me ask you this. How much are your computer files worth? Back up now with Carbonite.

PAT: (Laughing).

CALIENDO: I do. Okay. Where were we, America?

GLENN: (Laughing).

CALIENDO: Andy Stern. Raggedy Ann. Who was raggedy Ann's best friend? Andy! Raggedy Ann and Andy. Dolls, what are dolls? They are like puppets! Stern, Howard Stern, the self proclaimed king of all media, the king. What our founding fathers knew they needed to get us away from. The stern king, Andy Stern is a puppet for the king who wants to rule us all. Take your freedoms away and tell us what to do! Van Jones! Andy Stern! How can you not see it, America?

I love it when you come up with, you find these people. That's the other thing is you'll find people that nobody's ever heard of and they can't have, like, normal names. Richard Cloward and Frances Piven. Sounds like a, you know, a comedy duet from the Eighties. Merle Pepperman and Maurine Smythe, who were they? I don't know. But I have people looking them up right now!

GLENN: (Laughing).

CALIENDO: You see this purple phone I have sitting next to me? On this purple phone I'm waiting for Merle to call. Call, Merle! Tell me I'm wrong about your name! Tell me that Maurine Smythe isn't actually pronounced Smith! You can't!

PAT: (Laughing).

CALIENDO: They want to collapse the system.

GLENN: This is really, this is —

CALIENDO: The guests don't group. Huge alliteration. Some of the days you just, when you find the names of these groups, the Apollo Alliance (sighing). It was going to the moon. That's where they were going to send us! They were trying to send us away!

PAT: (Laughing).

CALIENDO: (Sighing). I've run out of products.

GLENN: That's all, that's all I am to you, isn't it? I'm just a clown show for you. I am.


GLENN: Do you ever watch people like me on television and go, this guy's going to make me so much money!

CALIENDO: That's the thing. Like with John Madden, John Madden never liked me. Even in Time magazine a couple of years ago, he said things like, you know, I don't mind what he does. You know, he does the thing that he does.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh, that sounds just like him. Oh, my gosh, that sounds just like him.

PAT: Yeah, you are talking to somebody who is not —

CALIENDO: (Inaudible). But, you know, that takes years. I listened eight, nine years ago when I started doing John Madden, I sounded like, you know, there you go. And I was like, people are like, oh, that's really good. Now I'm doing Madden. Saul Alinsky, I mean, he's going to overload you! Now, that's what you need to do. John Madden with your chalkboard. There it is. Van Jones over here, we got the Rathke over here, we got Wade and Dale. We don't know what Dale's doing, but we think we know what Dale's doing. But then again his name's Dale.

GLENN: (Laughing).

CALIENDO: We looked over here and, you know, I try to put this together and, boom, this is just the progressive movement!

GLENN: Frank, when are you in New York? When are you in New York?

CALIENDO: I'm not sure yet. I'll going to get out there sometime.

GLENN: You have to make time. We'll have you co host the show or do the show. I think it would be hysterical. I think it would be hysterical.

PAT: Funny.

GLENN: You just fill in and just take our old material and make fun of me! I think it's hysterical.


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."
