Glenn Beck: Obama's Campaign Comedy

GLENN: This is just a theory of mine. I believe Barack Obama is actually Jerry Seinfeld. Have you seen Jerry Seinfeld together with Barack Obama? I haven't seen him. And here's my may I approach the bench, your Honor? I would like to introduce Barack Obama audio as Exhibit A. Here it is, my case, Barack Obama is actually Jerry Seinfeld and this whole campaign thing has been to launch some comedy movie or I don't know what it is, but I think he's Jerry Seinfeld. Here it is.

OBAMA: The other day I was in a town hall meeting and I laid out my plans for investing $15 billion a year, energy efficient cars and a new electricity grid and all this. Somebody said, well, what can I do? What can individuals do? So I told them something simple. I said, you know what, you can inflate your tires to the proper levels.

GLENN: No, hang on. I'm just kidding. I didn't mean that, inflate your actually I just said to him, "Hey, you got $15 billion? (Laughing)." No, no, no, no, don't worry about that because I don't need the money, no, no, I was serious about the inflating the tires thing to the proper levels.

OBAMA: And that if everybody in America inflated their tires to the proper level, we would actually probably save more oil

GLENN: Stop, stop, stop. Hang on. We would probably actually save more. We would probably I mean, are you beginning to hear the Seinfeld here just a little bit? We would probably actually begin to save more. Maybe it's just me.

OBAMA: And all the oil that we get from John McCain drilling right below his feet there, wherever it is that he was going to wherever he was going to drill.

GLENN: (Laughing). That's great. Wherever he's going to drill. I mean, what's the deal with John McCain? What's with all this drilling thing John McCain is talking about? I mean, does he think there's oil just beneath the surface of the Earth or something? That's crazy. Just hanging around down at the bottom of the Earth, does he think there's some sort of a substance under the ground that can be refined into fuel and power our cars and trucks? This guy's crazy. I mean, what's next? The same substance can be made into tires or plastic? I mean, where is this guy getting this stuff?

OBAMA: So now the Republicans are going around.

GLENN: Here it is.

OBAMA: This is the kind of thing they do. I don't understand it.

GLENN: Stop. You've got to play that again! This is a comedy routine.

OBAMA: So now the Republicans are going around.

GLENN: Yeah.

OBAMA: This is the kind of thing they do. I don't understand it. They're going around. They are sending, like, little tire gauges.

GLENN: I just don't get this whole game of politics. They're taking something I said and trying to make a point with it? They're taking my positions and telling people about my positions? What's up with that?

OBAMA: Making fun of this idea as if this is Barack Obama's energy plan.

GLENN: They're acting like this whole tire gauge is my energy plan. Where do these guys get this stuff? What are you drinking tonight? Do we have any Republicans here tonight? You, sir, you in the front row there, you're a little overweight. Not like me with my basketball skills and my nice tight abs. No wonder you vote for the party with the elephant on front. Am I right? Guys, back me up. No, I'm just kidding, I'm just funning you, sir. No, seriously, forget the tax cuts. We need calorie cuts for the wealthiest 1%. Isn't that right, fatty fat fatso? Guys, back me up on this.

OBAMA: Now, two points. One, they know they're lying about what my energy plan is. But the other thing is they're making fun

GLENN: Stop. They're making fun. All you need is a good laugh track behind this thing. First of all, wouldn't they either be lying or making fun, or do we just get to choose like multiple choice, we can just choose the one that works for us? Do you remember those books where you used to read and it would say, like, if you want this to happen, you know, those adventure books where you would read and you would say, hmmm, I'm going to choose this adventure and you go to Page 56? I think that's what this is. It's like choose your own adventure. They're either lying or they're making fun, and the one that's making fun is much more fun.

Now listen to what he says they're making fun of.

OBAMA: About what my energy plan is. But the other thing is they're making fun of a step that every expert says would absolutely reduce our oil consumption by 3 to 4%.

GLENN: It's like these guys are being ignorant. Listen to this. I mean, every expert says it would absolutely reduce their oil consumption by 3 to 4%. By the way, don't do the math on that one because it's not even close if you actually look into it. But I figure if I say things like "Every expert" and "Absolutely" and these guys are crazy, I don't know what you're talking about, you are probably going to buy it. Speaking of buying, what's the deal on the grocery store these days? I mean, you got all these choices, paper or plastic, plastic or paper. I mean, it's crazy! What's the deal with choices? You know, it's just too much. Oh. I guess I'm not pro choice anymore (laughing). I know, I'm only joshing you, huh?

Is there any more of this thing?

OBAMA: It's like these guys take pride in being ignorant, you know?

GLENN: You know?

OBAMA: They think it's funny that they're making fun of something that's actually true.

GLENN: That's actually true.

OBAMA: They need to do their homework because this is serious business.

GLENN: Sure is.

OBAMA: Instead of running ads about Paris Hilton and Britney Spears, they should go talk to some energy experts and actually make a difference.

GLENN: Can you believe these Republicans? They're running ads with Paris Hilton in them. Of course, I compared myself to Paris Hilton months before and that was okay, but hey, what's the deal with these Republicans? I mean, what's going on? Why are all these choices?

Protests following the fatal police shooting of Walter Wallace Jr quickly devolved into violence, rioting, and looting in Philadelphia, and BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer was there to document what the mainstream media won't. But while filming the carnage inside a Five Below on Tuesday, Elijah was surrounded and attacked by looters.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to detail his experience and to explain why mainstream media efforts to downplay the violence just show that independent media has never been more important.

"Unfortunately, [the attack] escalated from one person to about a dozen very quickly," Elijah explained. "I'm actually really happy to be alive. Because in that same shopping center, right there, there was a 15-year-old girl who was shot, according to reports. And I heard multiple gunshots throughout the night. Another individual is reported to have heard a gunshot as well, so we try to confirm. I watched people get pummeled beyond belief."

Glenn asked Elijah to respond to mainstream media claims that conservatives are exaggerating the looting and violence in Philadelphia.

"It's so funny to hear people that aren't there try to counter what we're reporting," Elijah replied.

In the final days before the 2020 election, President Donald Trump is gaining among black voters, particularly men, because his record of accomplishments "speaks for itself" and the "façade" that President Trump is a racist "just doesn't ring true," argued sports columnist Jason Whitlock on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday.

Jason, who recently interviewed the president at the White House for OutKick.com, shared his thoughts on why he believes many black Americans — notably celebrities such as Kanye West, Ice Cube, and 50 Cent — are breaking from the "façade" that President Trump is a "flaming racist."

"I really believe the facts are starting to speak for themselves, and that Donald Trump's record of accomplishments, particularly as it relates to African Americans, speaks for itself," Jason told Glenn. "He actually has a record to stand on, unlike even Barack Obama. When [Obama] was president, I don't think he had much of a record to stand on, in terms of, 'Hey, what did he actually deliver for African Americans?' President Trump has things he can stand on and, you know, beyond that I think black people understand when he starts talking about black unemployment rate. And America's unemployment rate. And then, when you add in for black men, the façade we've been putting on [President Trump] … you know, this whole thing that he's some flaming racist, it just doesn't ring true."

Jason suggested that Trump's fearlessness, unabashed masculinity, and record of keeping his promises resonates with men in the black community. He also weighed in on how media and social media's bias plays a huge role in convincing people to hate President Trump while ignoring Antifa and others on the Left.

"I keep explaining to people, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, they're some of the most secular places on earth. And we've reduced everyone to a tweet, that we disagree with," he added.

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:
