EXPOSED: The SHOCKING way Coca Cola HIDES its health risks

Calley Means, Co-Founder of TrueMed, once spent time in the same room as Coca Cola’s top executives and lobbyists. It was there, he tells Glenn, he discovered Americans’ health was being ‘rigged.’ Now, this whistleblower is exposed exactly how Coke — and other corporations like it — fool the world by hiding its immense health risks. The shocking, three-pronged approach, Means tells Glenn, involves bribery, phony studies, and promises made to top organizations. And because of it, Americans — and especially our kids — are suffering.

GLENN: I don't think we understand why these companies do what they do. And I think the first -- the first time that we saw -- or, we should look to seeing where companies change, was Occupy Wall Street.

Those banks were -- were being protested. And they sat in front of the streets.

And most people think, oh, it just died out. No. I believe that there were deals made. Look, leave us alone. And we'll help you do X, Y, or Z.

There are very few giant corporations, I think, that are true to, you know, even their advising. You know, I want to teach the world to sing. Do you, Coke?

We have Calley Means on the phone with us now. He is the cofounder of True Med. And he is a whistle-blower on Coca-Cola.

Hello, Calley.

CALLEY: How are you doing, Glenn?

GLENN: I'm good. I'm good so tell me your story from the beginning.

Before we get into the Coca-Cola, tell me who you are, where you came from, and how you got here.
CALLEY: You know, I was born and raised in the swamp. I was born and raised in Georgetown. Very ideological. Worked in politics early in my career. Worked for John McCain. Got into -- road people out to the campaigns, got into consulting.

Then I found myself in the rooms with Pharma executives, soda executives, and seeing some very alarming things. So slowly -- slowly got out of that. Got more into entrepreneurship. And it just kind of grounded in that public policy standpoint, had become very passionate.

I think when you look at what's happening with kids, twenty-five percent of them having pre-diabetes. What's happening to the health of Americans. There's something being rigged, and it's a first order issue.

Because, you know, depression and disease is just skyrocketing. Life expectancy is declining.

And I really turned it back to my early experience, and have a new company that's trying to change those incentives. But with a new son and looking at the world he's going into, I felt the need to speak out.

GLENN: Okay. So you were -- and were you on the side of Coca-Cola, at the time when they were talking about the sugary drinks?

And Snap?

GLENN: Yeah. Unfortunately, there's not a big lobby for diabetic children. But since Coke has thrown a lot of money around in DC.

And the consultants are almost, you know, universally on the side of the soda companies. The American Beverage Associations, various fun groups, and Pharma.

GLENN: And so what happened? You were -- you were there. And you were fighting for Coca-Cola. Or big soda.

And you were in the room. And -- and what did you witness?

CALLEY: Yeah. I think this is really instructive. And it's from 2012. And instruct it now. Because it's up for debate again. This is around food stamps. Food stamps is a program that 15 percent of the American people within depend on for nutrition. We can debate on whether it's a good program or not, but it's there. Shockingly, 10 percent of that has been spent on sugar drinks. Ten percent of 110 billion dollar government intrusion program. It's a material part of Coke and Pepsi's revenue.

And logically, people were questioning that, and Coke wanted to keep the status quo.

So the playbook they used is the playbook, as old as time. And it's used today.

It's a three-part story. The first was identifying civil rights organizations. In this case, the NAACP.

And what was shocking, being in the room, as -- as, you know, kind of -- kind of a bad scene. I mean, these old Coke executives, basically dictating what the NAACP should say. It's very transactional. Coke gave the NAACP millions of dollars, and they explicitly agreed to call opponents. In this case, parents who are concerned their children are ingesting 100 times more sugar than they did 100 years ago, racist.

It's that simple. But it's bipartisan. The second leg of the stool was, you know, we paid off -- pay to play. Insert think tanks on the left hand and the right.

It's a big player in the pay-to-play scheme. And it's basically corporate-owned entity, ordering a study from the Heritage Foundations like going to McDonald's and ordering a Big Mac. You get whatever you want.

GLENN: Wait. Wait. Wait.

I want to make sure I understand this.

You're saying that part of -- you know, big corporation's planning. Which I absolutely believe. Is to order studies.

And -- but they go to the Heritage Foundation? One of them, you say, they're on both left and right. One of them is the Heritage Foundation?

CALLEY: Oh, absolutely. And, yeah. I think it's important to call out. The elites on both sides are getting called off. The way it works at the Heritage Foundation, you get a fundraising point. The fundraising point scorched the Coke executives or the Pharma executives, under the Heritage Foundation. Meet with the scholar.

You talk high-level concepts. And then the fundraising point basically guarantees that a study will say what they want to say. And there's an exchange of funds. Interestingly, and I think importantly, I also see, you know, oil companies. And, you know, other special interests, Heritage Foundation, and other think tanks, to not call something a tax. I mean, Grover Norquist. Heritage Foundation's whole DC influence, you know, network.

Actually has redefined often what a tax is. So you can actually buy publicity to rail against a tax. Of course.

But you can also pay these organizations to redefine something as not a tax that benefits them.

GLENN: There was something that I saw, that I talked about in the first hour of today's podcast of -- of there's this new study out, by the -- you know, greening of the world foundation. Or whatever it is.

A global warming foundation. New study that shows that gas stoves and all natural gas should be taken out of homes. Because it's too dangerous for kids with asthma. And the first thing I thought was, oh, really?

The global warming study came back with that. What a -- what a surprise.

CALLEY: Exactly.

GLENN: And everything that we do now, in politics, is based on some study. And you're saying, you can't trust the study from either side.

CALLEY: Well, you know, I think -- I think that's very important. And I think it warrants a great example, when there's trillions of dollars at play.

You have -- you can guarantee that financial rating institutions that trust.

And I think -- I think the third place, we went on this stop, that's the playbook. Is I think actually the most important. And I think the least understood.

Large, you know, prominent elite research universities, in my opinion, are nothing more than public relations entities of corporate interests.

GLENN: Yes. They're exactly what Eisenhower warned about, in his farewell address. Exact.

I mean, he said, billing military industrial. Corporations. And educations will just start selling out, and producing the studies that corporations or the government wants.

CHRIS: Yeah. There's nothing more prominent or unimpeachable within still today, on the media. On the left and the right. As a peer-reviewed study, from an elite research institution.

But you've got to ask who is funding these studies. You can have a peer-reviewed study say whatever you want. You can ask whatever question you want.

You can structure the study however you want. So it's really irrelevant for this issue I really care about, which is the nutrition. The hijacking of American nutrition. As you know, the disastrous 1990s food pyramid, that was on foundational research from Harvard University from the head of nutrition at Harvard University, directly paid for by sugar.

You know, leads up to today, NIH funded it's called the food compass. They hailed it as the most -- most complex and important nutrition study, you know, in modern times.

It says Froot Loops are more nutritious than eggs. And it's by processed food companies. It says Honey Nut Cheerios is more nutritious than organic ground beef.

So that's still looking at -- and you look at it, Coca-Cola and processed food companies spend 11 times more money on basic nutritional research, funding basic nutritional research at universities than the NIAH. And even the NIAH is just a grant-making organization.

And in the case of this food compass, I just mentioned is actually often -- more often than not, funding professors who have other financial incentives to talk of their study.

So really, we need to absolutely, like, again, I'm looking at like PR consultants at Washington. You know, dictate to prominent professors. What they should be finding in their research.

It's pretty unsettling.

GLENN: So how do we fix this? Or what do we trust, as a -- I mean, personally, I think there is some common sense in some people alive today. That say, hey. How about moderation in all things would be a good place to start?

But what do you trust, if there's -- if all of these institutions are blown?

CALLEY: Yeah. So I'll talk -- I think health is a specific area that is impactful to everyone and gives a framework. Let's talk about what happened with health in the past 40 years.

I think the patient has been systematically disempowered and in fear. And, really, by extension the American people. Right?

It's like, don't self-diagnose. Don't trust -- don't question the science. Trust the science.

You know, the American patient has been battered into like not questioning anything, and basically in total fear.

So, you know, the first step, and this is why it's important to get this out there. Is to wake up a little bit. Is to ask -- look around your children's classrooms, look at the fact that most children are obese. You know, as I said, 25 percent have pre-diabetes which used to be called adult onset diabetes.

Look at what's happening to the health of adults.

And just start questioning things a little bit. And question when you see that news article, with the new peer-reviewed study.

And question whether it makes sense that Froot Loops are more healthier than eggs, or beef.

So that is the first part, and I think that is happening. I think we have a lot of people speaking out.

I am encouraged that a lot of folks, nutrition has been an issue on the left. But the right is really waking up, looking at male sperm count plummeting 50 percent in the past 50 years.

GLENN: Do you know what that is caused by? Do you have any idea?

CALLEY: See, I don't think it's very complicated, Glenn. The foundation of the American diet, right now. The foundation is processed grains, which is basically weaponizing whole grains to take the fiber out, which basically makes an immediate sugar impact in the blood. You know, 70 percent of food is processed food, which is the foundation is processed grains.

Seed oils, which is very refined, cheap oil, and added sugar.

Seed oil as a processed grain, didn't exist 100 years ago.

These are new inventions. These are process inventions. And then added sugar really didn't exist until 100 years ago. It's gone up 100X in 100 years.

So really, the foundation of the American diet, has been weaponized to be highly attractive. Highly inflammatory.

And it's just evolutionarily we're not made to -- and we're being gaslit. Right?

Just yesterday, the American Association of Pediatrics, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of pharma that's still a trusted institution.

Said that to combat this obesity that preteens are experiencing, they should get a weekly or monthly injection for the rest of their lives.

This new Big Pharma obesity cure. So it's like, I really think, there's this axis, where food companies have basically weaponized food. Everyone is getting sick.

Everyone is getting overweight. But our trusted medical institutions turn a blind eye. Because there's a trillion dollars spent on stats now, Metformin. You know, all these drugs.

Interestingly, all these things, these drugs are treating, have gone up. Diabetes has gone up. Heart disease. So there's this -- there's this blind eye from the medical system.

So to answer ark question. There's some education. Also public policies. We have some crony capitalist systems.

GLENN: You think? Hang. Hang on just a second.

Hold on for just a second. Let me just take one minute to tell you about Relief Factor's sleep.

If you have trouble sleeping at night, getting to sleep, the last thing I want to take is some drug. I don't want to take a drug. I don't want -- and they always whack you out. But there are times where you just toss and turn. Toss and turn.

About four or five months ago, Relief Factor came to me, and they said, hey, we have this new sleep thing. Do you have problems sleeping?

And my wife really does. I do as well. And it is completely natural. There's no drugs in it. And all it does is really just kind of just reduce the distress. And help you relax a little bit. But I take a couple of them before I go to sleep.

And man, I have the best night of sleep. I wake up refreshed. Again, it's all natural.

Unleash the power of great sleep by calling 800-4-Relief. 800-4-Relief.

Go to Dream big. Sleep tight.

With Relief Factor sleep. Ten-second station ID.
I mean, it is -- it is so clear to me, at least. We're talking to Calley Means. He's the cofounder of True Med.

You can follow him at Calley Means, spelled with a C. as well.

It's so clear to me, when you look at us, compared to the rest of the world, something is up with our diet. It is clear. And even common sense tells you, we didn't grow up with peanut allergies. We didn't have gluten-free everything. We've done something really bad to our food and our diet.

CALLEY: Right. Uh-huh.

Yeah. Glenn, and to me, you know -- you know, growing up, as a conservative, you know, considering -- considering not my philosophy. I think -- I think it's good people are waking up on this. Because to me, it's a first order issue. If we care about individual liberty, right?

The most important thing, is the -- is the ability of our brains. And I'm not going to try to get too deep here. But our brain -- diabetes is cellular dysfunction. Literally the cells are advertise functioning. We are basically -- that is the first order issue of like, our human capital. And it's -- it's not just people being overweight. Depression is skyrocketing. Infertility is off the charts.

As I mentioned, the male sperm count. PCOS, leading cause of female fertility is off the charts.

We -- we really are facing, you know, and getting exponentially sicker, fatter, more depressed, and more infertile. And that's a first order issue.

And then you get to the market. And people say, well, we don't want Coke. It's free choice. I'm all for it. I'm a Libertarian.

Let's have people drink Coke. It shouldn't be paid for with tens of billions of dollars of a government program. That's not a free market. That's a rigged system.

GLENN: Correct.

CALLEY: So right now, we have rigged the system. And you do not have a free market. And I think conservatives. Even some very, you know, well-meaning smart conservatives, that I know.

You know, if you even mention taking Coke away from food stamps.

That's patriarchal. No. What's hamming right now. The system is rigged right now. The system is rigged to give a 12-year-old an injection. A Pharma drug. Instead of talking with them. And working with the parents, to get them healthier.

GLENN: You are preaching to the choir. Especially with ESG and everything else.

They are planning on redesigning our food. What food is good for us. What's not.

And it is all fixed. I mean, I can't get conservatives, who are in power, to understand and maybe it's because they're on the take.

That this is not messing with the free market. ESG is messing with the free market.

You've got the government and corporations within designing where they want the world to go. And we're not really offered the choice.

We're being told lies. Fake studies or paid for studies.

And then we're -- then we just find ourselves in this situation. And I think it's getting extraordinarily dangerous.

CALLEY: Absolutely. Absolutely. And you look at Bill Gates being the largest farmer in the country, making processed food. You kind of start going through the -- and it's -- you don't want to be too conspiratorial. But, you know, what is happening to the American people?

And, you know, just to your question of what people do. I think hopefully, people listening to this. And it's been a big awakening for me the last couple of years. In waking up and asking questions. I think there's one actual public policy. And you have to ask with your public policy, what helps people stay healthy?

And I actually think it's a good policy. The FSHSA, which is very underlooked, these tax-free accountants. What these companies are doing. You can actually buy food and exercise, tax-free. Food and exercise is often the best medicine. And most people don't understand it.

You can actually literally qualify food and exercise and other lifestyle, as medicine saves 30, 40 percent with your FSHSA.

GLENN: Holy cow. I didn't -- I'm not aware of that. I'm out of time.

Can I have you back? I would like to do a podcast with you, Calley. Because I think this is vital information. Calley, thank you so much for being on the program.

Debunking Outrageous LIES from the New Hulu Series, ‘The 1619 Project’ | Ep 247

Remember this quote from George Orwell’s “1984”? “Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past.” The Left is trying to erase the truth of our past to control our lives NOW.

For example, did you know there was also a white, European slave trade? That Thomas Jefferson intended to get rid of slavery during America’s founding? That only two colonies voted against including the abolition of slavery in the Declaration of Independence? Glenn sets the record straight on some of the history forgotten by "The 1619 Project" — a “project” that evolved from “journalism” by Nikole Hannah-Jones of the New York Times into curriculum for school districts in all fifty states and into a documentary series airing on Hulu.

"The 1619 Project's" premise is that America was founded and built on slavery alone and continues to suffer because of this ultra-racist foundation. It dovetails perfectly with the critical race theory blanketing America’s education system, for which Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is being raked over the coals this week after blocking a high school Advanced Placement course on African-American studies.

"The 1619 Project" is a political agenda dressed up as history and gets so many historical facts absolutely WRONG. Glenn takes you into the American Journey Experience vault to reveal artifacts from one of the largest private collections of pilgrim and Jamestown history. He’s joined by Elijah O’Neal, the head of the education department at the American Journey Experience, who brings the evidence to debunk the LIES about America being pumped out in the news, in our classrooms, and now in our living rooms.


Biden sends Ukraine TANKS. Does he WANT war with Russia?

Why would President Biden send U.S. tanks to Ukraine? Tanks are an offensive tool, not a defensive one, and this latest move from Biden (and Europe) will only bring us one step closer to World War 3 with Russia. In this clip, Glenn explains why this decision makes NO SENSE...unless there’s a reason Biden and the far-left may actually WANT to engage in war. And as we face the ‘inevitable’ fall of the West, Glenn explains, there is one, big reason why several global superpowers may want world conflict to cover their tracks…


How a HORRIFIC COVID mask dispute in Canada led to this woman's DEATH

Denise Warriner is on a mission to find justice for her sister’s awful, 2020 death. Recently released CCTV footage shows 43-year-old Stephanie Warriner sitting in a wheelchair in a Canadian hospital. Warriner, who suffered from COPD, lowered her COVID mask because she was struggling to breathe. A horrific confrontation then occurred between Warriner and several hospital security guards. The men then move her seemingly lifeless body to another area of the hospital. She died two weeks later. Denise, who for THREE YEARS has been urging Canadian officials to try those responsible for her sister’s passing, joins Glenn to detail her efforts and the lack of action from Canada she’s seen as a result. Plus, she explains how YOU can get involved…

The back story

Prior to Denise's on-air interview, Glenn's producer contacted Ontario Premier Doug Ford, Ontario Attorney General Doug Downey, and University Health Network CEO Dr. Kevin Smith. She inquired what was being done regarding Stephanie's death, including the security guard who dragged Stephanie down the hospital hallway, and the security guard who altered the security cameras to avoid capturing the confrontation.

Their responses were disappointing, to say the least. Premier Ford's office did not respond. The University Health Network, the hospital chain where Stephanie's death occurred, simply wrote:

UHN will not comment on a court's decision nor on matters of individual employment or discipline.

The response indicates that the hospital network won't do anything proactive regarding the staff responsible for Stephanie's death.

Screenshot of email correspondence between Glenn's producer and UHNCourtesy Glenn Beck staff

The office of Ontario's Attorney General, Doug Downey essentially "wiped their hands" of any responsibility regarding Stephanie's death.

Screenshot of email correspondence between Glenn's producer and Attorney General Doug Downey's officeCourtesy Glenn Beck staff

As Glenn said, the response is simply from a "weasel" who wants to avert any responsibility from his office.

Though these offices attempt to divert responsibility, Glenn puts it simply: Stephanie Warriner was "killed for improper mask wear..." in a hospital, where she should have received treatment for her underlying condition. Instead, she was pinned against the wall, dragged through the hallway, and died.

We have to hold these parties responsible.

Glenn: Far-left is RUINING COMEDY

The far-left ruins nearly everything is touches. Thankfully, as proven in a recently released statement from M&Ms, large corporations are beginning to learn that consumers are tired of their woke policies. But there’s still one, major component of society that’s at risk of succumbing to the far-left’s cold, evil touch: Comedy. In this clip, Glenn explains how the left is RUINING comedy because it makes you happy and they HATE that you can enjoy life with them…


Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: I want to talk to you a little bit about the loss of meaning. This is one reason, I just when we such high suicidal rates now. Is because nothing is true. Nothing means anything.


Nothing. Nothing.

And the things that are given meaning, are ridiculous. Okay?

Like, for instance, race. It's ridiculous. Why are we arguing about race?

Race doesn't make a difference. Nothing. Nothing.

It's the -- the merit inside of each of us. It is what you do with your life.

Everything that is given power today, is meaningless. And it's all part of that woke culture.

Last year, and I can't -- I can't take this. And I'm going to be going to address this once. Last year, the M&M spokescandies. There's no such thing as a spokes candy.

Got a refreshed look to reflect today's society. I don't know about you.

But as I'm getting ready to watch a movie, and I see the M&M guys strapped to that rocket, about to go off, all I'm thinking is, can we stop with this stupid commercial?

I've got my box of M&Ms. I want to watch the movie. I don't ever really fear for their life. But maybe that's me. Yesterday, the M&M brand continues, quote, to evolve, to reflect a more dynamic progressive world, that we live in.

Now, our lives were destroyed by, you know, the women -- you know, the womanly green M&M. And our life has been made much richer, when she became nonbinary. I don't know about you. Yesterday, the M&M Mars company made a statement announcing an indefinite pause on their spokes candies. Because they realize that even a candied shoe can be polarizing. Which is the last thing that M&Ms wanted, because they were just trying to bring people together. Really?

So their new spokesperson is Maya Rudolph, who spent three years on Saturday Night Live. You can find her funny or not find her funny. You know, whatever. The company says, they chose her, because they want to make things fun again. And she's still inclusive. Really?

Because here's the problem. You could have Jesus. But the minute Jesus comes down and your candy company says, say these lines, and they're woke lines, you know, a lot of people will be turned off by that. So you really stopped being inclusive. Name one figure that is inclusive right now, that's not polarizing to at least half the country.


The reason why, because you have to play the game. If you're going to work for these companies, you have to have the right words, acronyms, slogans, you know, race.

This is inherently noninclusive. But I digress. So they're making this statement. And what a surprise. Right before the Super Bowl. And companies are learning, go woke. Go broke.

We're tired of companies trying to do more, than what we're asking them to do. When it comes to M&Ms. Here's what I want you to do: Make a yummy chocolate candy.

I don't even care if it melts in my hand. Because I got past that lie of yours, when I was seven. They do melt in my hand.

But they're yummy. You and your stupid spokes candy make no difference in my life, or the life of anyone in the world.

Your candy might. But the spokes candy doesn't.

No one ever, anywhere, in all of time, will say, you know, I was a once a little girl who thought I couldn't make it. But then that candy company put their yellow M&M, in comfortable sling back shoes, instead of the go-go boots. And I realized, I can do it. I am important.

It's not going to happen.

Now, go woke, go broke. Also applies to comedy.

The new woke Velma, people are surprised this is a disaster. I didn't even have to watch it. I could have told you, it was a disaster.

This is the HBO Scooby-Doo spin-off, which do not even include Scooby-Doo. Shaggy has been replaced by a black man named Norville. Fred is the only white character. So he's evil. He's a privileged misogynist. Who can't dress or feed himself.

Velma is a black Asian. And Daphne is half Asian and half white. And they're both bisexual. Obviously, there's more than one lesbian kissing scene.

Another scene features teenage boys kissing. And there's plenty examples of doinks. Sexualizing children.

So what happens when you let woke bullies take control of what should be considered funny?

See, they do what they always do. They don't write comedy. Because they don't believe comedy is funny.

They believe comedy -- you're not supposed to laugh. You're supposed to clap angrily. Yes! Finally!

They're making out. Yes. That's what their comedy is.

Now, I'm not against satire. Laughter is the test of truth. A joke is playful judgment.

It conceals the ugliness of the world. And it uncovers the ugliness of the world.

And leftists. Boy, they are not a group winning many beauty contests lately.

This is literally the subplot of one of the Velma episodes. Now, weird thing is that even the left, doesn't like the Velma show.

They don't like it. They got making out lesbians, and the white guys -- they don't like it. The telegraph called it the most hated TV series on TV.

It has four episodes out. Velma is already -- already the worst rated TV show in IMDB history. Its audience score is six.

But as always, the left isn't taking responsibility for their bad behavior. A review in Forbes said that Velma is so bad, in fact, that it's spawning conspiracy theories, that creator Mindy Kaling, made what is essentially a parody of what the right-wing thinks left comedy is really like.

What? What a stupid plan that would be. It's a common tactic, if a woke comedy fails, which it always does. They blame us. Conspiracy theorist.

The left loves to whine about the dangers of right-wing humor. I don't know if you saw this. But the European Union just released an 18-page report. The European Union. That's a government body, by the way.

An 18-page report, on how right-wing comedy is a weapon.

Now, if a conservative, or a comedian just accidentally stumbles on a conservative joke, even by accident. Wait a minute. I didn't mean that.

No. I voted for Obama.

The left immediately destroys that person. And that joke, he meant that literally. He meant that.

When -- when he was drawing Yosemite Sam, and he was shooting. He meant that all people are like Yosemite Sam, and they should kill all people that are not like Yosemite Sam. What are you talking about?

The gist of their right-wing comedy argument is conservatives shouldn't be allowed to make jokes.

Because their humor is actually a complex. And when they say complex, they mean a mental illness. Literally, it's a mental illness.

And all they're doing is calling for violence. Ironically, a Pew study from 2020 proves kind of the opposite. I'm quoting.

White liberals disproportionately suffer from mental illness. Let me tell you, it's not even a competition. Masks? That has become a mental illness. There is -- there is no reason to wear a mask. That -- that fraud has been exposed long ago. Why are you still wearing a mask?

You have a mental illness at this point. They claim that conservatism is incompatible with political humor. And that liberalism suits it quite nicely. They say conservatism supports institutions. Which is ridiculous. Because at this point, the leftists are the institutions.

You know, they're at a drunk, at a karaoke bar. I can sing.

I'm so much better than you can sing.

I mean, they think they are capable of humor, because as the author about the book of right-wing comedy wrote, liberals are inherently free thinking. So here's what all of this is really all about.

Liberals don't like the fact that you can laugh. You know, what they hated about Ronald Reagan the most? He was happy.

He was funny. He was normal. They hated that.

Hated that. He makes jokes.

Oh, my gosh. They hate -- you can have fun, without them. That you can be successful, without them.

They hate what makes you happy. They hate what gives you meaning in life.

They hate what would give them meaning in life.

They really hate that we can laugh about ourselves.

They don't do a lot of laughing. I don't know if you've known that. I don't think I've seen many of them really laugh. I've seen them, ha, ha, ha, that's right. You stick it to them. I have seen that a lot.

Lorne Michaels, the creator of Saturday Night Live. He said in an interview, the reason why SNL tends to roast conservatives more than liberals, is, quote Republicans are easier than Democrats.

Democrats tend to take it personally. Republicans think it's funny.

There is nothing funnier, to me, than someone wrecking me.

You'll hear that a lot on the show. I pay these guys a lot of money. If it bothered me, it would stop, would it not stop, Stu?

STU: Oh, yeah. I built my career, on making fun of you.

GLENN: Exactly right. And who encourages it more than anybody else?

STU: You do.

GLENN: Exactly right. If you can't laugh at yourself, then what -- who are you?

Who do you think you are? The M&M Mars company?

With their dopey spokes candy? That's important.

That's really important. You know, so we're going to give them a message of hope and inspiration and fun.

See, conservatives think that their sincerity on their spokes candy, is funny.

They don't get the joke
