Glenn Beck: The Fox News host takes our Stupid Questions!

Glennbeck_l
Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity, watch your Beck! Glenn Beck’s self-titled Fox News program (weekdays at 5 p.m. ET) debuted in January, and it’s already the third-most-watched cable news program. Whether a guest is fainting or Beck is weeping, the polarizing host always makes headlines. (And jokes: The TV and talk-radio star will hit the road this June for his Common Sense Comedy Tour.) Let’s see if we can make him cry with a few Stupid Questions.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Greetings. Should I call you a Republitarian or a Liberpublican?
GLENN BECK: I would just call me “King.” Or “Your Highness.” Or “Oh Grand Ruler.” Any of those fascistic kind of titles will be fine with me. I have an evil plan that will have me placed at the head of this empire that I’m building within the next three to six weeks, eight at the top.

Let’s talk about the famous April 13 fainting, when a guest passed out while shaking your hand. Were you aware that a mere touch from you could put a man right to sleep?
Usually it’s my voice, my topics, my looks, my general presence. But the handshake? No, I wasn’t. I felt like Spock. It was good.

If you had the opportunity to pass out on somebody else’s program, whose would you pick?
It would be kind of cool to pass out on Letterman, because I have a feeling I’d get halfway through the interview and he’d make me want to. I would be praying for death and just be like, “Oh, dear God, please let me pass out. It will all be over.” I have a feeling Dave doesn’t like the show.

What are you the host with the most of?
Poundage. Cellulite. Big fat cheeks. Sleepless nights. Tears. I have a deficiency of salt, though, because of all the tears that I shed.

What do I have to say to make you cry?
Try this: “This interview is going to last three more minutes.”

You’re going on the road this summer to do a comedy show. Gimme your
best riff on subprime mortgage debt. I mean, really make me wet my
pants.

Well, it’s easy to make you wet your pants talking about subprime
mortgages. I just don’t think it’s the way you’re looking for.

Glenn Beck trails only The O’Reilly Factor and Hannity in the cable news ratings. What should you do right now to take both of them down and rocket yourself to No. 1?
I do have a call in to Dick Cheney to take them hunting.

Here’s what Jon Stewart said about you: “Finally, a guy who says
what people who aren’t thinking are thinking.” What do you think he
meant by that?

Isn’t it time that those people have a voice? I am their king…

Wait — are you crying now?
I’m getting a little misty from the idea of people who aren’t thinking
bowing in front of me. I’ll have to spend a few minutes explaining to
them how to bow, but once they catch on, it’s going to be sweet.

    Great answers! That was funny! I love a guy who doesn’t take himself too seriously. :)

  • William

    he’s an idiot.

  • kevin K.

    Love or hate his politics, that was funny.

  • Leon

    Beck: Ex-gay and alcoholic, full-time right winger dirtbag.

  • ann

    He reminds me of Joss Whedon (if Joss weren’t a liberal) with his snark and self-deprecation. Either way, they both make me laugh.

  • Adam

    I hate the guy, but that indeed was funny. “I felt like Spock” lol A fan of Big Bang Theory (IRONY) no doubt!

  • chris

    to bad all of the left wingers and liberals cant seem to debate. all you do is hate hate hate, what wrong with asking hard questions? Oh yeah all of you care more about how everyone feels over the law or whats right. Like none of you liberals want to feel the pain of these big greedy corporations go into the toilet. Well if they ran a crappy immoral buisiness then they need to fail, but no we are gonna prop them up on gov’t heroin and then put alllll the debt on the children and grandchildren.my children now owe 114,569 each just from the first 100 days of this mob style take over of our country.

  • Glenn Beck Rocks!!!

    Glenn Beck Rocks!!!

    I never thought to compare Glenn to Joss, ann. Interesting comparison. LOL
    I like Glenn. He can get a little carried away, but at least he’s passionate about something.

  • janana

    Beck has been ahead of the curve most of the time. He delivers with humor and self deprecation. Liberals hate him because they are just plain ignorant of real life and parrot the bashing they hear by Stewart and the likes.

  • Susie

    Sick freaks rule! Evil Conservatives unite! Rush for president and Glenn for Secretary of State!

  • Rhonda G.

    BECK IS BRILLIANT!!! Do you “think” Jon Stewart might be a little jealous of Glenn?

  • brad

    Ditto on what Chris said above. Beck is not a textbook Libertarian, but he is the revolutionary we need.

  • Dick Gaines

    Tired of these whiz-kids you people write about–they’re ALL bums!
    Show me one who has the guts to take on THE ONE ISSUE!
    Eligibility–native-born American.
    Show me One!
    Who is it?
    There are none!
