GLENN: I am everywhere this weekend, it feels. If you're in New England, I start tonight in Nyack, New York, I believe, and then at 7:30 in the morning I am in New Haven, Connecticut, then Hartford, West Hartford. Where am I -- where else am I going to be? I'm going to be in Rhode Island, Massachusetts, right?

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: And then I end things at the casino where things usually end for me but never in a good way. You know, that's -- anyway, I'll be at the casino with Bill O'Reilly. We're going to be betting on red, all of it on red at the Mohegan Sun where we're going to be doing a special show.

Now, he's promised me that he's going to show up in costume. I'm working on my costume. I'm actually, I think I'm going to come out in costume. He offered me $5,000. He didn't even say for charity. He just said, I'll give you $5,000 if you come out as -- it wasn't Nancy Pelosi. It was what's her name that just called, the B word.

PAT: Oh, Joy Behar?

GLENN: Yeah, Joy Behar. $5,000.

PAT: To dress as her?

PAT: To dress as her, to come out as her. All I have to do is dress like a witch.

STU: That's not the word actually that she used. It was a different --

GLENN: Oh, I know. It was what she called somebody else.

STU: Oh, okay.

PAT: That was a term of endearment.

STU: Term of endearment.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: It was a term of endearment.

GLENN: Term of endearment.

STU: She's awful.

GLENN: She really is an awful person. No, she is.

STU: It's a good summary of her.

GLENN: No, seriously she is.

STU: Yeah. And she just tries --

GLENN: No, I mean that with all the love and respect.

STU: No, I know you do.

GLENN: I'm not judging her.

PAT: No.

GLENN: She's just a very awful person.

STU: Seems like you're judging a little.

GLENN: No, no.

PAT: I'm not judging her, either. I'm just saying she's going to burn in the fires of hell.

GLENN: No, no. See, now you're damning here. Now you're damning her.

PAT: No, I'm not. Who am I to judge?

GLENN: Yeah, but you are saying she is going to burn in the fires of hell.

PAT: That's all I'm saying. Burn in the fires of hell.

GLENN: That's for Jesus to decide. That's for Jesus to decide.

PAT: No, I know.

GLENN: And if I may recommend --

PAT: And you know he's going to decide she burns in the fires of hell.

GLENN: I'm just going to make a recommendation to Jesus --

STU: I don't know that --

GLENN: -- that she likes things hot.

STU: I don't know that he would take your recommendation.

GLENN: Plus she better hope that I don't die before her.

STU: Because that's --

GLENN: Because I'll wait -- no, no, I'm waiting for somebody, Jesus. Hang on. No, judge me in a minute. I'm waiting, I'm just waiting. Has Joy arrived yet? (Laughing). I'll testify against her. She's a bad person.

Anyway...

PAT: (Laughing).

STU: Bizarre. I mean, I --

GLENN: No, really, come on.

STU: She's certainly acting like it lately. All she does, she seems to be just screaming all the time about people.

GLENN: That's all she is. She is a bitter, angry, she is a bitter, angry, frustrated comedienne that wasn't funny in 1963.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: When she was in the Catskills in '63, '65 --

PAT: She had a few moments in the Pocono, no, seriously she had a few moments in the Poconos.

GLENN: She was doing comedy in the clubs back in the Sixties when Sammy Davis, Jr. was like, why is this Joy Behar calling me? She's not funny. No, I won't tour with you. And, you know, she was like, and tip your waiters and waitresses and have you seen our champagne tubs? I mean, you know, that's --

STU: She's at Mt. Airy lodge?

GLENN: Yes, she was.

PAT: No, that was the Pocono thing.

STU: Oh, Pocono.

GLENN: She hasn't gotten over the fact that she wasn't funny in 1963 and she's not funny -- she wasn't funny in '93 and she's certainly not funny today.

STU: No, no, and she certainly shouldn't be talking about issues.

GLENN: She honestly -- no, she can talk about it. I mean, whatever. Everybody has their own opinion.

STU: No, she can't, not her.

GLENN: I'm just trying to find --

STU: She can do it. I don't mind her doing it. It's just so embarrassing. It's so embarrassing for her. She has no idea what she's talking about. She -- I was talking to someone the other day. We were talking about how it seems like she's at a party where a lot of smart people are talking about politics and then she goes on television and tries to recreate the conversations that she's heard from the weekend. She doesn't know why the people believe what they believe. She doesn't know how they got there. She doesn't know any of the background. She just blurts out half sentences in an order that she kind of remembers them in.

GLENN: But it's kind of sad.

STU: Awful.

GLENN: I feel sad for her. Because the reason why she's really an awful person is because she's so bitter and twisted and angry inside. She really -- and I mean this sincerely. I feel bad for her because I think like she's, she feels like she's been left behind. She's like, you know, I should have been successful, I'm -- because when I sat with her on the view, all she kept saying to me is, I'm funnier than you, I'm funnier than you. And I'm like -- when she said -- really, I mean this sincerely. When she said that, I looked at her and I went, okay. Well, you have to tell your audience that. I am funnier than you. And I'm like, I don't think I'm telling my audience that, Joy, but thanks for the tip.

STU: And the market has decided on that one, by the way.

GLENN: When she said that she was a comedian, I thought she was joking. It was the only funny thing I've ever heard her say. I thought that was the joke.

STU: When she says she's a comedian, comedians all around the world feel pain in their sides.

GLENN: No, seriously.

STU: It actually hurts them physically.

GLENN: Seriously. I mean, I don't know if she was the Phyllis Diller wannabe and Phyllis occupied that -- seriously, occupied that slot.

STU: Right. There's not too many for two Phyllis Dillers.

GLENN: No, there's not. Phyllis was the one and so she was like, I'm funnier than Phyllis Diller.

STU: Right.

GLENN: And everybody was like, no, you're not.

STU: Phyllis Diller's hilarious. You don't understand. Phyllis Diller is much funnier than you. Ma'am. Ma'am, Phyllis Diller is much better.

GLENN: Much funnier, much funnier.

STU: And you know what? Just, if you could just escort people to their tables, that would be a better use of your time.

GLENN: Yeah, I don't know if she was carrying the drinks at the time and she was just heckling Phyllis Diller at the time. I don't know. It wasn't --

STU: I just love the fact you're talking about Phyllis Diller.

PAT: I love that.

GLENN: It's true.

PAT: You don't get the opportunity in 2010 to talk that much about Phyllis Diller.

STU: Or Joy Behar for that mother.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Phyllis went away. Phyllis -- you know, before it became embarrassing.

STU: Right.

GLENN: Phyllis went away.

STU: And that's something to learn for entertainers or people who wish to be entertainers or thought they were entertainers at one time.

GLENN: Or waitresses.

STU: Right.

GLENN: It's time to go away before it's embarrassing.

STU: Right.

PAT: Yeah, and that time is about ten years past.

STU: Ago.

PAT: Ago.

STU: Yeah.

PAT: It's about 10 years ago for Joy.

GLENN: Well, I think if we got Phyllis on the phone, she might argue it might have been a little earlier.

STU: Yes.

GLENN: So I mean, I don't know what she --

PAT: Is Phyllis alive? Is Phyllis Diller still living?

STU: I don't know if Phyllis is alive.

GLENN: No, but if she's dead, I can guarantee you she's standing at the bar right now at the bench saying, wait a minute, Jesus, hang on just a second, don't judge me yet; is Joy here yet?

STU: No, Phyllis Diller's alive it appears.

GLENN: Is she really?

STU: Is this accurate? Yeah, she's alive, and still going strong and still funnier than Joy.

PAT: Well, if she would have been dead, she would be funnier than Joy.

STU: At least she wouldn't be negative. If you're talking and you're bombing, that's actually worse than even -- dead people would be even.

GLENN: I mean, look, here's the thing.

PAT: Seriously?

GLENN: No, no, no, I am being serious.

PAT: No, I know you are.

GLENN: When I sat next to her and she insisted on, I just -- I mean, over and over again, I'm funnier than you, I'm funnier than you. Like it was some contest. And I --

PAT: That's really weird.

GLENN: I felt bad for her.

PAT: That's really weird.

GLENN: I felt bad for her. I think she is somebody who fancied herself, I'm not kidding, like Phyllis Diller and wanted that role, never got that role. You know, still living in the Catskills in her glory days of when, you know, there were, you know, like Morte was in the front row going, "You are so funny! You are right!"

STU: (Laughing).

GLENN: And she's still living in those days wishing that they would come back.

STU: (Laughing).

PAT: (Laughing). Serious, but seriously, I'm serious.

GLENN: I'm serious.

PAT: I know you are. I know you are. I know.

GLENN: I know it's really funny but it's also really sad. She is a sad, sad, angry, bitter lady.

PAT: I know. Why is she named Joy?

STU: Yeah, it is --

GLENN: She is the most misnamed person I've ever...

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: I don't even know what -- I don't know what Phyllis even means, and Phyllis fits. Joy does not.

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: Bitter, Bitter Behar, Angry Behar.

PAT: No, Bitter Behar is good because then you've got the alliteration, too. That works nicely. I like that.

GLENN: Phyllis Bitter, she could have gone for that. Change her name.

PAT: You know, Phyllis would work for Joy. It would.

STU: She could be a Phyllis.

PAT: Phyllis Behar, that's good.

GLENN: I don't know. She's as funny as an Agnes or a Myrtle.

PAT: Myrtle?

GLENN: She is a little more like a Myrtle.

PAT: (Laughing).

GLENN: I don't know why that's funny.

STU: I don't know, either.

PAT: But it is.

GLENN: But it's still funnier than Joy Behar.

STU: It's unfortunately for her, true.

PAT: Start calling her Myrtle, Myrtle.

GLENN: No, no. No.

PAT: Myrtle Behar.

STU: No, because you are above that.

GLENN: No, I'm not.

STU: You are above calling her Myrtle just like you just did call her Myrtle.

GLENN: I'm not above it.

STU: Oh, no.

GLENN: No, no, this is not a Gandhi moment. I'm not above it. I really do feel bad for her, though. I do.

PAT: Oh, I do, too. I do, too.

GLENN: No, I don't like her.

PAT: No.

GLENN: And I don't defend her, but I feel bad for her. Who does what she's done lately? When she stood up with Bill O'Reilly, it was such an obvious ploy for attention. It's a cry for help.

STU: Awful.

GLENN: It really is. Somebody -- you know what it is? It's like a child does when, you know -- I don't know if you've ever seen this. When there's a star child and everybody's paying attention and, like, you know, the last born or the middle child that's unnoticed, they are always, they are like, "Hey, I'm over here. Look at me." And that's what it was. She stood up, and you could see it. It was a cry for help.

STU: Awful, just an awful moment of television.

GLENN: And then to do the -- the bitch thing, what is that?

PAT: Repeatedly.

GLENN: What is that? I mean, I've said this before, Barbara Walters so lowered herself in this room, just lowered herself. Is that Joy calling now? I just heard the phone ring. I know what she's saying. Just tell her, no, you're really not funnier.

PAT: Tell her she would be funnier if she changed her name to Myrtle.

STU: It would be funny.

PAT: That would be funny. Myrtle Behar? You get a laugh just from that.

STU: It takes a lot of talent to take our Headline News ratings and cut them in half. That's not easy to do.

PAT: It's not. It's not.

GLENN: If you're Joy Behar, it's hard to do that well.

STU: Yes. That's only a credit to their staff, which many of them are fantastic.

GLENN: Many of them are Rs.

STU: Yes, when we --

GLENN: Yes.

STU: You know, they're still there.

GLENN: They're drinking heavily.

STU: They have to be at this point.

GLENN: They're drinking heavily. They're like, "I can't take her anymore. I just can't take her." That's all right. Jack Daniels makes it all better.

STU: (Laughing).

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.
