GLENN: I want to get right to talk about the president who has now summoned, who has now summoned the BP President and CEO. I'm sorry. Wasn't it just yesterday or the day before when we were talking about what the president had said about the president of BP who he has not yet spoken to, he said this.
REPORTER: Have you spoken directly to Tony Hayward, the CEO of BP?
PRESIDENT OBAMA: I have not spoken to him directly and here's the reason. Because my experience is when you talk to a guy like a BP CEO, he's going to say all the right things to me. I'm not interested in words. I'm interested in actions.
GLENN: Okay. Let me ask you this. What is that guy like, the BP CEO? What is that? I'm trying to figure that one out. Can you imagine — I said this to Bill O'Reilly last night. Can you imagine if I would say, if we were — if I had some sort of a, you know, rif with Al Sharpton? "Have you spoken to Al Sharpton directly one on one?" And I said, "Let me tell you, my experience tells me speaking to people like Al Sharpton does no good; he's going to say what he's going to say." What do you mean people like Al Sharpton?
GLENN: What do you mean people like Al Sharpton? What do you mean people like the CEO of BP? Is it English? Is that what it is? Because we know he has a problem with the English. We know he has a problem with the English. Didn't his wife write a dissertation when she was in college, some sort of a — it may have been her final —
PAT: Her thesis at Princeton.
GLENN: It may have been. I think it was how racist the English were. So we know he has a problem only — just not based on that. Based on the fact that he gave and boxed up and sent back a gift from England, the bust of Churchill. Now, I don't know. I've never heard of anything like that.
PAT: It's a weird move because they gave it to us and they said, no, no, we gave that to you; keep it.
GLENN: No, it was for 9/11.
GLENN: They gave it to us as a — it's like boxing up the Resolute desk and saying, yeah, you know, this desk is kind of old and, you know, we don't really have a place for it here. It was a gift from the people of England. Have you — may I ask the president, have you ever received a gift from a relative that you — you know, like a little Hummel figure that you are like, oh, this is... oh, man.
STU: It's like in a Christmas story when the aunt comes over, you wear the pink bunny suit.
GLENN: You wear it. That's what you do. And you say thank you. If you want to insult them, you don't wear the pink bunny suit.
PAT: I'm not wearing the pink bunny —
STU: No, you are wearing the pink bunny suit when they come over.
PAT: I'm not wearing it.
STU: Because that's what mom says to do.
PAT: I'm telling Mom no.
GLENN: Barack Obama, is that you? Okay. So maybe it's just that he doesn't like the English and he has a problem with the English. Let me tell you something. When you just talk about people, you know, like,
'the English, well, they are going to say whatever they want." Okay, so that means all Englishmen are liars and they don't care about anything. Or is it that he — do we know what color this guy is? Is he white?
STU: He is white.
GLENN: So is it that you talk to people like that, all these white people and they will say whatever? Is that what it is? Is it capitalist? This is the one I think it is.
PAT: Me, too.
GLENN: You talk to these capitalists and they will say whatever they want. They will say whatever they think I need to hear. I'm interested in action because I'm a revolutionary... oops, did I say that? Oop, maybe I said too much.
STU: I don't remember that quote from Obama, but —
GLENN: No, you will. You will hear it.
Okay. So which is it?
STU: Could it be rich people? Maybe it's rich people.
GLENN: It could be rich people.
STU: Maybe it's CEOs.
GLENN: Well, CEO is a capitalist really.
STU: Yes, but a certain type of capitalist.
PAT: Head of a major corporation, uh huh.
STU: Could be that.
GLENN: Yeah, could be.
STU: Could be he has curly hair.
PAT: People who remind him of his grandmother.
GLENN: Could be — pardon me?
PAT: It might be people who remind him of, you know, typical —
GLENN: Oh, typical white people.
PAT: You know?
PRESIDENT OBAMA: She is a typical white person.
GLENN: All right.
STU: You know what they are going to say.
PRESIDENT OBAMA: If she sees somebody on the street that she doesn't know, you know, there's a reaction that's been bred into —
STU: Of course, it's been bred in.
GLENN: Bred into her. She's a typical white person.
PAT: It's bred into you. You can't help it.
GLENN: No, I know.
PAT: That's why he shouldn't bother with calling the CEO of BP because there's a reaction to a president that's been bred into him and he knows.
GLENN: What a very good point, Pat, very good point. Using his own words to describe his grandmother.
PAT: Well —
GLENN: That when you see a typical person like the president of BP, he has a reaction.
GLENN: You know, to those people that has been bred into him. Okay. All right. Now, that actually kind of works.
PAT: It does.
GLENN: If you understand who his parents were and who his grandparents were because they are not really the typical white people. His mother, his mother wasn't. His mother was a revolutionary. His father wasn't. A revolutionary. His grandparents, they went to the Communist Little Red Church just outside of Seattle. They had communist friends. So it's almost like Marxism has been bred into him. Like what — play the audio again because I want to make sure I use just his — the way he speaks.
PRESIDENT OBAMA: She is a typical white person who — you know, if she sees somebody on the street that she doesn't know, you know, there's a reaction that's been bred into —
GLENN: Let me get this right because I want to craft this exactly right.
GLENN: So Barack Obama, he's just the typical Marxist that, when he sees a CEO of like an oil company that he doesn't know.
STU: Right, right.
GLENN: He just has a reaction because it's been bred into him.
PAT: Mmm hmmm. Hmmm.
GLENN: I'm comfortable with that.
STU: I'm sure the media would be comfortable with you saying that.
GLENN: Sure. Of course they would. And they would say that I could write that in a book.
Well, let me just, let me start where we, you know — finish where we started and that is this. It's good that the president of the United States who has been looking for whose ass to kick, quoting the president —
GLENN: Has a boot on his throat.
STU: Boot on his throat, yeah.
GLENN: Whose ass to kick and has not wanted to meet with the president of BP or the CEO because he knows people like that will only tell him what he wants to hear and he's not interested in that. He's only interested in action, it's good to see now that he has summoned that CEO and president to the White House. Not invited them, not said, hey, can we get together, not had a beer conference. No, no, no. Summoned them. Almost the way Napoleon used to, or a... chancellor.
