Glenn Beck, President Obama Coming To Chicago On Same Day

Posted: Updated:

In a few weeks, President Obama will return to his hometown of Chicago for a Democratic National Committee fundraiser, which might coincide with his reelection campaign announcement. Unfortunately for the President, one of his harshest critics will also be in the Windy City on April 14.

Conservative pundit Glenn Beck will appear at the Chicago Theater that evening for “Glenn Beck Live," the Chicago Tribune reported Tuesday. Tickets to the event range from $35 to $95, and Beck's website promises a good time:

You may know Glenn Beck as the crazy crying conservative who is serious about saving the country, but if you’ve been a fan since the beginning, you also know that sometimes he says funny things…on purpose! That’s right – it’s time for Glenn to take a break from the problems and politics and have a little fun, and that’s exactly what he’s going to do on his new tour.

Don’t let the suit and tie fool you. Besides being a maverick with his opinions on the state of the world and our union, Glenn Beck is one of the most unique and refreshing comic thinkers of his time. With a unique mix of stories and stand up, Glenn will show you the lighter side of just about every situation (and with Obama’s healthcare plan being what it is, this is the perfect time for laughter as the best medicine).

The Tribune reports that Obama donors are being asked to raise $350,000 each by the end of the year for his reelection bid, and that he will meet with them while in Chicago.
