View Full Version : Glenn Beck: No One On My Show Can Mention ‘That Man’ Obama Anymore

As part of his New Year’s resolutions, conservative talk host Glenn Beck returned from the holidays with a new policy: no one can mention President Obama anymore on his show.

“Anybody who brings him up, besides me, is fired,” Beck said of the new policy. Astonished by the severity, co-host Stu Burguiere asked if staffers could get by with just mentioning that “the president said,” to which Beck said it would be evaluated on a “case-by-case basis.”

Instead choosing to refer to the president as “that man” or “that guy,” Beck explained the very loose definition of what counts as “mentioning” the president in his mind. After much back and forth with his colleagues, Beck said:

“You can allude to him. You can play Joe Biden. But I don’t want to hear the man’s voice. I don’t want to hear him. I don’t want to know about him. You want that information? Go any place else. There’s thousands of outlets, you can have all the information you want. I am not talking about that man.”

Burguiere joked that Obama is now like the villainous Harry Potter character Voldemort in that the novel’s protagonists referred to the evil wizard as “he who shall not be named.”


:smiley_ROFLMAO: It's like pre-school all over again, I love conservatives.
