Glenn Beck: Biden gaffe #4118852

Video: Biden Calls Custard Shop Manager a 'Smartass' After Taxes Comment

GLENN: I love Joe Biden talking to a -- talking to a custard -- owner of a custard shop which, - I don't even know what custard is. I guess it's just some sort of ice cream. Is that what it is?

PAT: Well, it's a little bit different but it tastes similar, yeah.

GLENN: Is it --

PAT: Frozen custard.

GLENN: Is it an eastern thing? Where is that from?

PAT: I've gotten in the west. I haven't seen it out here much, but they may have it.

GLENN: Where was he? Wasn't he in Pittsburgh or something?

PAT: I'm not sure.

GLENN: We are so down on our custard story here. I'm sorry. We've been traveling all weekend. We got about two hours of sleep last night. So, we're not up on our custard story.

PAT: Not as much as we normally would be with a custard story.

GLENN: Yes, because we are really -- I mean, really, look at me.

PAT: We're into custard.

GLENN: Yeah. So -- I mean, I'll eat it. You can send it if you want. So, he's talking to the clerk. He's having some custard and I guess Biden asked, you know, for a discount.

PAT: Yeah. Well, he said, how much do I owe you? There is a little report on it and here's what happened.

VOICE: How much do I owe you?

PAT: How much do I owe you?

VOICE: (Inaudible.)

PAT: It's kind of hard to understand because it's being taken, I think, on a cell phone or something and so Biden says, What do I owe you? And he says, Oh, nothing. That's on us. Maybe just lower our taxes and we'll call it even.

VOICE: A few minutes after the Cops' manager's comments on taxes, there's another exchange.

VOICE: (Inaudible.)

PAT: You can say something nice instead of being such a smart ass all the time. Say something nice.

GLENN: Who the hell are you? Get the hell out.

PAT: The custard owner wasn't like that.

GLENN: I know. He said -- oh, he was very nice. Do you know why? Because everybody's a wimp. Everybody is a wimp.

STU: Are you calling the custard shop owner a wimp?

GLENN: Get the hell out of my shop! Who the hell do you think you are?! Yeah, if I wasn't a smart ass -- when did the Declaration of Independence become a smart ass comment, King George?

PAT: That was priceless. That should go down in history.

GLENN: I would love some of these people -- I would love the opportunity to be the custard store owner that day.

STU: Well, he just -- he said afterwards he came up and said he was just joking and it was a nice little warm exchange.

GLENN: Oh, okay. Biden wasn't joking.

STU: That guy, like that time he told the joke about the Indians, that was hilarious.

GLENN: If you weren't such a smart ass, that was such a joke.

STU: I mean, that guy is just filled with comedy. Just go into a Dunkin' Donuts and a 7/11. You've got to have a --

PAT: Those racist jokes are always so good.

STU: That's just hilarious. So, the guy is filled with comedy. Why wouldn't it be --

GLENN: Oh, he is comedy. He's filled with something else which I think the reason why maybe the President has flies swarming his mouth.

VOICE: In Delaware, the largest growth in the population is Indian Americans moving from India. I cannot go to a Seven 11 or a Dunkin' Doughnuts unless you have a slight Indian accent.

GLENN: Oh, my! That is so good.

PAT: He was just joking when he said this.

VOICE: You've got the first sort of mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and (inaudible.)

PAT: That's a story book.

GLENN: That is a story book, a clean African-American. It's a story book.

PAT: Man.

GLENN: If he wasn't such a smart ass -- I mean, if you want you know, maybe we'll call it even if you just cut our taxes. That's not a smart ass comment. That is your employer telling you what to do, Joe.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.

The crisis at the border continues to worsen, with the U.S. Border Patrol recently releasing some shocking statistics that illuminate just how bad the situation has become. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is doing everything he can to prevent any additional unlawful crossings into the Lone Star State.

Abbott joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to describe recent action he has taken to ensure that those who do cross into Texas illegally know they came to the "wrong state."

After noting that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris "have completely abandoned post as it concerns the Texas border," Abbott explained how "Texas is stepping up" to combat the flood of dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers and drugs he says are pouring into border communities.

"Beginning in March, I deployed a thousand Texas Department of Public Safety officers to the border. I deployed the National Guard to the border. And they made well over a thousand arrests of some of these criminals we talked about. They've apprehended more than 33,000 illegal immigrants coming across the border." Abbott said. "But because of the way the Biden administration has abandoned the border, we are now elevating our game. What I did yesterday, in response to more than a dozen counties along the border ... I granted their request for a disaster declaration," he added.

Abbott went on to describe how his disaster declaration gives Texas the authority to toughen penalties for lawbreakers, including criminal trespassing, smuggling, and human trafficking.

"We're going to begin arresting everybody coming across the border and charging them with criminal trespass and putting them in jail. They are coming in here, thinking they'll get the Biden free-ride, and go wherever they want to go. Not in the state of Texas. We'll start arresting them right and left, and putting them behind bars, and saying they came in to the wrong state."

Asked by Glenn if he is prepared for the inevitable "media onslaught", Abbott simply answered, "We're prepared to see a reduction in the number of people coming across the border — because Texas is enforcing the law, period."
