MICHELLE OBAMA: So even though I wasn't exactly sure at that time what I was supposed to do with this information about my children's BMI, I knew that I had to do something that

PAT: And that's not even weight! BMI, her body mass index?

GLENN: How do you even measure that? Stu, do you know?

PAT: Stu, might know. Stu, do you

GLENN: Is this where they put you in a pool?

PAT: I think it's your weight by your height by

STU: Yeah, I think it's a weight/height situation.

GLENN: Oh, my body index must be

PAT: My body mass index is all fat.

GLENN: No, that's body fat.

PAT: Oh, that's body fat.

GLENN: That's when they put you in the pool, right, because fat floats?

PAT: I don't know.

STU: Yeah, just height and weight are the only ones.

PAT: I don't know. Who even knows their children's BMI? I mean

GLENN: Especially her daughters because her daughters

PAT: That's tiny.

GLENN: Who's taking their daughters' BMI because they're not fat.

STU: My understanding, too, is that BMI is not designed for children. It doesn't even work.

PAT: I don't think it is.

STU: It's just for adults.

PAT: Maybe a doctor or like a fitness instructor or something.

GLENN: You know what? Could you find that out for sure? Because this first lady, her job is to stop obesity in children. And if she's talking about BMI and it's not even supposed to be used for children, that's pretty dangerous.

STU: Hold on. Let me

GLENN: You want to talk about giving kids a complex. Now you've got the First Lady talking about I mean, no offense. Your arms are all that, but... but... hmmm?

PAT: Excuse me?

GLENN: I'm just leaving it there.

PAT: All right. So you're

GLENN: So let's not take on your let's not take

PAT: Your arms are all that, but... that's weird.

GLENN: Why do you focus on the butt?

PAT: No, I wasn't. I was just

GLENN: I'm just saying your arms are all that, but...

PAT: I was looking for, you know, like a conjunction there of

GLENN: Oh, some additional information?

PAT: Conjunction junction.

GLENN: Maybe you should leave your kids alone.

PAT: Okay, all right, good.

GLENN: Maybe your kids don't need to have the arms.

PAT: I was just going back to Schoolhouse Rock, conjunction junction, what's your function, hooking to parts of a sentence.

GLENN: And what are some of those conjunctions that you'd use?

PAT: Like but, you know, would be one... is all.

GLENN: But... leave your kids alone.

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: Here she is. She goes on.

PAT: But she didn't leave her kids alone.

MICHELLE OBAMA: I had to lead our family to a different way. But the beauty was that

GLENN: Hang on just a second. Hold on. So she had to lead the way. She led the way.

PAT: To a different way.

GLENN: To a different way. Okay, all right, got it.

MICHELLE OBAMA: Just a few months we started really minor changes. And I share this story because the changes were so minor.

GLENN: Yes.

MICHELLE OBAMA: We did things like, you know, limit TV time. My kids were already fairly active but, you know

GLENN: But.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: We cut TV time out during the week and that helped increase activity because they would just

GLENN: Hang on just a second. Didn't her husband say cut out TV time, people stop watching the news?

PAT: Seems to be a theme.

GLENN: Let's get the kids, let's not watch the TV.

PAT: I think the thing is she told us during the campaign that Barack wouldn't allow us to do certain things, didn't she?

GLENN: Where? Where did she

MICHELLE OBAMA: And Barack Obama will require you to work.

PAT: He will require us to work.

MICHELLE OBAMA: Is going to demand.

PAT: Demand.

MICHELLE OBAMA: that you shed your cynicism.

PAT: Shed.

MICHELLE OBAMA: That you put down your divisions.

PAT: Put down.

MICHELLE OBAMA: That you come out of your isolation.

PAT: Come out.

MICHELLE OBAMA: That you move our your comfort zone.

PAT: Move out.

MICHELLE OBAMA: That you push yourselves

PAT: Push.

MICHELLE OBAMA: to be better. And that you engage.

PAT: Engage.

MICHELLE OBAMA: Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual.

PAT: Never allow. That's nine demands Barack was going to make on us and obviously one of those is our eating habits.

GLENN: I like that.

PAT: And don't watch TV.

GLENN: Stu, do you have the update on the BMI?

STU: Yeah, the standard way they do BMI does not apply to children, which is basically what I was remembering. They do have a measure of it. It's just kind of rated differently. It's a little

GLENN: What's my BMI?

STU: How many I'm going to have to pull up several commas.

GLENN: 226 .

STU: Okay, hold on a second.

GLENN: And I'm 226, and I'm 6, I like to say 6' 3".

STU: Yeah, you like.

GLENN: My driver's license says 6' 2" but I like to say 6' 3" because it helps my BMI.

STU: It would help your BMI. Okay. 6' 3".

GLENN: No, 6' 2"

STU: And how many pounds?

GLENN: 226.

STU: 226? 226 plus what?

GLENN: Hmmm? No, 226.

STU: That would give you a 29 BMI. Congratulations, you are not obese! Yeah!

GLENN: I'm not obese?

STU: You're only overweight.

GLENN: I'm not obese? The guy who was standing at the mirror brushing my teeth going, I've got to sit down, this is too much work.

STU: (Laughing). No. Well, a lot of

GLENN: Wait a minute. This is great news! Break out the buttercake!

STU: Yeah, you can

GLENN: This is good! I'm not obese! How many pounds can I gain before I am obese?

STU: I'm working on that here.

GLENN: No, hang on. There's a difference between obese and morbidly obese. I've got obese. I've got all obese to pass through.

PAT: Before you have to start worrying about a diet!

GLENN: I'm going, I mean, what am I, just kind of like plump?

STU: My understanding is well, the calculator I'm looking at here is

GLENN: Is it solar powered?

STU: It is not.

GLENN: Save the planet. Do your part. Little steps. They may seem, they may seem so small that you may not even notice, but they all add up in the end. Please only use the solar powered calculators.

STU: I don't know that the official BMI has an obese rating. You can go all the way to 233 and you'll still only be overweight.

PAT: Do mine. 4' 11".

GLENN: Wait, wait, where do I have to get to? Hang on.

PAT: 4' 11" and 438 pounds.

GLENN: Wait. Where do I go, what do I have to be at not overweight?

STU: So if you just want to be normal weight?

GLENN: Normal weight.

STU: Hold on. I'm going to have to do a little, a couple of calculations here.

GLENN: Do what because my normal weight, when I do TV, you know, when I first started doing TV and I cared, I was at 205.

STU: You would still be overweight.

GLENN: You've got to be kidding me.

STU: No.

PAT: 6' 2," 205 is overweight?

STU: 6' 2," 205 is overweight.

PAT: Really? Wow.

GLENN: Can I tell you something? This is how screwed up this thing is? Because at 205 do you remember when I started TV how many times

PAT: You looked great. You looked great.

GLENN: Okay, that's disturbing. But you know how many times people came up to me and said have a sandwich, really, have a sandwich.

STU: Yeah, they were trying to make you feel good. But honestly...

GLENN: (Laughing).

STU: You did actually look like really, I would say healthy.

GLENN: They were I was always at a Subway they said that.

STU: You would have to go, Glenn, at 6' 2" you would have to drop all the this is unbelievable. You would have to drop down to 194 to be at the very upper end of normal weight.


PAT: Wow.

STU: That's insanity. You would look bizarre at 194.

GLENN: Wait a minute, wait a minute, wait a minute. I'd have to be at 194 to be what?

STU: At the very upper limits of normal weight. (Laughing).

GLENN: What's the wait. What's the next level down?

STU: Underweight?

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: If you go to underweight, you'd have to be let's see. I'm just throwing numbers in here to see what I can get here.

GLENN: So the upper weight is 194? So for me to be at normal weight, to be at normal weight, the fattest I could get is 194?

STU: Yes. This calculator

GLENN: This is crazy.

STU: Maybe I'm in the wrong calculator. I'm starting to reconsider this calculator because it says

GLENN: It's electric powered, it works. If it's solar powered, then all of your facts will be wrong.

STU: This is powered by biofuel. So I don't know if it's going to work. But it says that if you were 6' 2," which you are, and weighed 145, you would still qualify as normal weight.

PAT: 6' 2," 145! Come on. There's no way. There's no way.

GLENN: What kind of weird

PAT: I mean, if you are a woman maybe.

GLENN: model are you? If you're a woman? 6' 2" and 145 if you're a woman? What, do they not have bones? But no man could be 6' 2" and 145 and look normal or be normal.

STU: Maybe this is a woman calculator.

GLENN: Who are you to say what normal is? You...

PAT: I'm the guy on the radio.

GLENN: Wait a minute, wait a minute.

PAT: And if it's on the radio, it's so

GLENN: No woman could be 145 pounds and 6' 2" well, no woman could be 6' 2" and normal. Let's just leave it at that. You've got to shave, you've got to I don't know if you take just a little bit of their thighbone out or what you have to remove. They need to be shortened a little bit.

PAT: Okay.

GLENN: But no woman could be 6' 2" and 145 pounds and look healthy. Do you think? They've got to be at least 110.

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: See, this is the kind of joke where my daughter and my wife just look at me with disgust!

STU: Right. And then you go

GLENN: No, but seriously that would be way too skinny.

STU: At 6' 2," 145? Well, you figure

GLENN: For a woman.

STU: You figure the supermodels, though, legitimately are like 6' 1," 110.

GLENN: They are freaks.

PAT: Do you remember we met Elle MacPherson, she towered over I think both of us.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: She was like 6' 2"?

GLENN: I don't know. I kind of blocked that. It was so embarrassing.

PAT: The way she was hitting on me?

GLENN: On me, yeah, I know, it was crazy. No, but she was very tall.

PAT: Very tall.

GLENN: And very thin.

STU: I am looking at the CDC website now and it is confirming that 6' 2," 145 is normal weight.

PAT: Wow, that's amazing.

STU: That does not seem possible. For a woman I would say I agree with you. That's not absurd for a woman, I think.

PAT: No, I don't think it is.

STU: It's definitely thin but it's not

PAT: It would be thin.

STU: But for a dude?

GLENN: How much does your wife weigh?

PAT: My wife?

GLENN: Yeah. He would save he's actually thinking about telling me! That was a test, man! What, are you crazy? Jeez! He was thinking about it. He was like, well, let me think. Don't think! "I don't know, she's beautiful, she's wonderful, she's perfect."

PAT: Because she is. I mean, I'm sure she wouldn't mind. 189.

GLENN: He sounds like Barack Obama. "She's perfect and I'm sure she wouldn't... mind. I... think I'm okay."

PAT: She weighs 206. She looks great.

GLENN: But you have to remember she's 8' 7".

PAT: Yes, yes.

GLENN: Back in a second.

Blaze TV hosts Glenn Beck , Chad Prather, and Steven Crowder weighed-in with similar but different thoughts on the fascism associated with canceling Dr. Seuss.

Glenn Beck can't help but wonder, "What is wrong with us?" in light of the Dr. Seuss books that have been cancelled due to "hurtful and wrong" illustrations — that takes America one step closer to complete insanity.

Chad Prather approached the issue from a comedic perspective, stating that "Dr. Seuss is dead and could not be reached for comment."

Steven Crowder explained that Dr. Seuss books were banned for being offensive and insensitive to some. So Steven decided to parody the six banned children's books with progressively titled and hilariously inappropriate versions.

"What's your climate credit score?" That's a question Americans may have to answer if the green global elites get their way.

While the media has distracted us with Orange Man Bad! and Russia, Russia, Russia!, the Left has been busy working on the fundamental transformation of America with a primary pressure point — YOUR money through YOUR bank. Democrats, forgetting the words of MLK, like to group people into categories. They judge you based on what skin color you have, your religion, occupation, your ideology, and now … your carbon footprint.

On his Wednesday night TV special this week, Glenn Beck exposes how they're now planning, not only to categorize you, but to give you a score. It'll determine everything for you: whether you can buy a home, get a new car, open a business … EVERYTHING. And if you don't bend the knee? You'll be blacklisted. But this isn't some far-off conspiracy theory. Multiple big U.S. banks are part of a private U.S. financial group enacting these policies now. It's here, and we're ALL at risk.

Unlike the mainstream media, we at the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" decided to actually do the research and get to the bottom of CPAC's controversial stage design, which many on the Left have suggested was purposefully shaped like an obscure Nazi symbol. We got our answers straight from the source — and it's not what the media is suggesting.

American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp joined Glenn on Wednesday to share the real story of the stage design, who designed it, and why he's taking legal options against those smearing the Conservative Political Action Conference's name seriously.

Matt told Glenn he'd never heard of the alleged Nazi insignia, noting that even a staff member who "studied anti-Semitism in college" did not recognize the obscure symbol. He went on to explain how the stage designing firm, Design Foundry, and Hyatt Hotels worked collaboratively with CPAC event organizers for months throughout the designing and construction of the stage. However, when pressured by the cancel culture mob on social media, both companies "ran for the tall grass."

"Both the Hyatt and [Design Foundry] looked to CPAC and said [they] had nothing to do with this stage. That's outrageous," Matt stated. "This whole process takes months ... everybody saw this. Everybody had to figure out how to construct this. Everybody had eyes on it from every angle. And nobody in that process ever raised their hand and said, 'Oh, you know, I took a European history class, and I noticed [that the stage design looked like a Nazi symbol.] Nobody."

Matt went on to add that, while CPAC expects attacks from the Left, they also have every intention of standing up for themselves, the conservative community, the Jewish community, and all the people who love America.

"We're fine with taking the hits. We always take the hits, it's part of being a prominent conservative group. We'll take the hits, but we won't let people lie," Matt said.

"I can't tell you how many people have called me during the course of this most tumultuous of years and said, at what point does the conservative community, do the 74 million Americans who voted for Donald Trump, do the people who love America, and think it's okay to read Dr. Seuss, and love Thomas Jefferson and Mount Rushmore, at what point do they start pushing back on the cancel culture? At what point do they say, this is a line you can't cross? I think we're at that line," he added.

"We called our conference, 'America Uncanceled.' The whole thing became about them canceling us. At what point do we not have the right to say,' you can't treat us this way'? You're disparaging us. You're destroying our reputation. You're destroying our ability to be respected members of our community. So, I'm taking your challenge of pursuing our legal options very seriously. And I think we have to go broader. We can't let these companies just follow the woke mob. We can't do it."

CNN reporter Jim Acosta was confronted at CPAC by The Federalist reporter David Marcus with a valid question: "When are you guys going to start covering Cuomo?" His answer — or, really, lack of an answer — perfectly demonstrates why he was earlier surrounded by CPAC attendees chanting, "CNN sucks!"

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere react to a video clip of the exchange with Acosta, as well as the mainstream media's double standards when it comes to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
