Glenn Beck introduces Oval Office set for speech-ifying
Glenn Beck hasn't appeared much in the mainstream media since he took his show to the Internet last year. But that doesn't mean the conservative commentator has tamed his act. He's still striving to be outrageous, whether you agree with him politically or not. The latest bit of attention-grabbing business for his GBTV.com show is a spot-on re-creation of the Oval Office.
Why does Beck have an Oval Office set? To give presidential speeches, of course.
The set, which Beck has nicknamed "The Oval," will make its debut on his daily program Monday as part of a regular segment of the show in which he'll be delivering speeches on what he thinks the president should be saying to the American people. According to GlennBeck.com, we should expect the speeches to be "Reagan-esque in tone." Of course, Beck's presidential speeches will probably be a good deal more emotional than any actual televised presidential speech.
This wouldn't be the first time Beck has attempted an Oval Office speech of his own. The first time he did this was in March 2011, when the host, still on Fox News, put a desk in front of a flat-screen projection of the Oval Office and gave his version of what he wanted Obama to say to America after the tsunami disaster in Japan.
Pop culture junkies should take note that Beck's personal Oval Office set wasn't built from scratch. It's a refurbished Hollywood set, once used in the production of "JFK." Something the conspiracy-minded Beck surely appreciates.
