Glenn Beck: Obama and Iranian Caviar

GLENN: Meanwhile Joe the plumber, speaking of Barack Obama, who's just like you, you know, because he -- I mean, he hangs out with people like Joe the plumber and Joe the Senator, you know, Joe Biden. He's -- may I say something to you? He's -- Joe Biden is Joe Six-Pack -- well, not six-pack as much as, you know, Joe, a bottle of fine Chardonnay. But yesterday Barack Obama who's just like you, is taking at the Waldorf Astoria. "I've got to get to the Waldorf." So he's staying at the Waldorf Astoria and he and his wife just want to order a little something in their room. "What do we have? Honey, what do you say, let's just call for something up in room service. I don't know. Just something to pick at a little bit, maybe, I don't know, some peasant food of some sort. What do they have here at the Waldorf Astoria?" Well, apparently at 4:00 in the afternoon yesterday (phone ringing)... "Room service. Yes?" "Yes, this is the Obama room and we would like just to have something to pick at, just something simple. What do you have?" "Well, we have some quesadillas." "No, no, I was thinking something a little more like maybe some lobster hors d'oeuvres." "Oh, those hors d'oeuvres things?" "Yes, what you said. I'd like some lobster hors d'oeuvres, two whole steamed lobsters, a little Iranian caviar. Do you have Iranian caviar?" "Ooh, I don't know, hang on just a second. Are we still only serving the Syrian caviar or -- yes, we have the Iranian." "Oh, that's lovely. I love, love -- the only conditions that I will set is that my meal must include Iranian caviar. Anyway, we'd like a little Iranian caviar, the two whole steamed lobsters, a little lobster hors d'oeuvres and a little champagne. After all, you can't have the 4:00 hour go by without a little bubbly." You've got to be kidding me! When I read this story just a minute ago, I asked Stu. And Stu, have you done any checking? Was it their anniversary yesterday?

STU: I don't know yet, no.

GLENN: My gosh, I just for -- I am so sorry. I forgot. It is an essential occasion. It's just a Thursday, "A little caviar on Thursday." Who is this guy!

STU: Their anniversary is October 3rd.

GLENN: Their anniversary is October 3rd? Maybe, maybe they were having their anniversary dinner at 4:00 in the afternoon. That's a possibility. Can somebody check and see if they had time together for their anniversary. I've never even had caviar. I might have had it by mistake one time. You know, it's one of those things that you're like, "What's that?" I mean, you know, not like -- you know, I never ordered it. It's like one of those -- you know, you go to -- have you ever been to one of those buffets, you go to those buffets and they got crap that you've never seen before and you're like, "I don't know." And you just start loading stuff up on your plate? You know, come on. You've never been to Shoney's? You've never had the caviar at Shoney's? It's Tennessee caviar, but it's really, really good. I've never had caviar. Have you ever had caviar, Stu?

STU: No, and I have no possible desire to eat it.

GLENN: I think we should -- I'm in Detroit. There's got to be lots of caviar here.

STU: Oh, yes, the caviar capital of the world, Detroit is.

GLENN: Adam, go outside, go outside downtown Detroit, see if you can find some caviar, will you? "We must have some caviar, it's lovely this time of year. Excuse me. Excuse me, sir. Where might I find some caviar and toast points?"

I don't even order this stuff. I mean, honestly. You go to -- my eyes shooting blood out of the -- my wife would choke the bat crap out of me if I ever went to a hotel -- I get yelled at if I order orange juice at a hotel. I mean, you order at a hotel, I'm not kidding you. We were at a hotel in New York and this is before we started the television, and we went up to New York and we were doing the pilot for the television show and so we had to stay in this hotel for, like, three, four days. So we're up in this hotel and I get to the hotel and my wife was making peanut butter sandwiches on the bed and I said, you know, they do have room service. She said, do you know how much hot chocolate is? Do you know how much a peanut butter sandwich is? I went out -- I'm not paying that. I went out and I got bread and peanut butter and jelly. I mean, that's the way real people are, for the love of Pete. Can you even imagine? What does love -- we have to call the Waldorf Astoria. What does lobster hors d'oeuvres, two steamed lobsters and Iranian cav -- side point, your Honor. May I have an ADD moment? Iranian caviar? Iranian caviar? If you're Barack Obama or John McCain, do you have anything Iranian right now! "I don't know. Do you have anything imported from Iran?" "Hang on just a second. Do we have anything from Iran?" "Look like we have a little anthrax right now. Would you like a little anthrax?" "No, no, no. Just the caviar. Send in the caviar. Thank you very much." My gosh. But remember, he's just like you. He Joe Six-Pack. He's Joe Six-Pack. "As long as Ch

On "Glenn TV" this week, Megyn Kelly, host of the "Megyn Kelly Show," told Glenn Beck she believes the Democrats' talk of unity is "all nonsense" and forecasted the "death of journalism" under a Biden administration.

Megyn cited President Joe Biden's unwillingness to make concessions that would help unify Democrats and Republicans as an example of how much he actually cares about unity, and added that, while she's all for lowering the political temperature in America, she also believes there are some personal freedoms that are worth fighting for.

"What's happening substantively is worth fighting for and it's not going to go away just because [Biden] gave a nice speech," Megyn said.

"I will object. I will protect my family and what I think is right over Joe Biden's need for unity, which is false anyway. 'Unify behind my agenda' is not a real call for unity," she added.

Megyn said she believes the Left has reached too far and "awakened a sleeping giant" in reference to the silent majority who should speak up, speak out, and refuse to be silenced any longer.

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.
