Here are the highlights from Friday’€™s Headlines on Dennis & Callahan with Kirk Minihane, John Dennis and Gerry Callahan. To hear the segment, go to the Dennis & Callahan audio on demand page.

— President Obama worked around Congress and used an executive order to protect millions of illegal immigrants in the United States from deportation. During his address to the public Thursday night, Obama said the immigrants would be temporarily protected and could “come out of the shadows.”

Said Minihane: “It’€™s over. We are joined, thanks to the 44th President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama, for making this happen.”

“You mean the 44th-best President of the United States,” replied Dennis.

“He’€™s definitely one of the 44 best,” said Minihane.

Replied Callahan: “Yeah, he’€™s in the top 44.”

The hosts said Obama overstepped his bounds and did something the public didn’t want to happen.

“There’€™s nobody for it,” said Callahan. “There’€™s like no one for it. No one can defend it. He has not much support on this one.”

“[Joe] Biden thinks it’€™s stupid,” added Dennis.

The hosts then played a segment of Obama’€™s Thursday night address. He offered a safe life, at least temporarily, for people who meet qualifications he laid out, especially ones who have had children in this country.

“It’€™s a good deal, think they’€™re going to take it?” asked Minihane.

Said Callahan: “All you’ve got to do is cross the border, have a baby, you get to stay.”

— A report completed by the American Sociological Review found that most people are OK with gay couples as long they don’€™t show public displays of affection. Of 1,000 people surveyed, 70 percent were in favor of equal rights for gay couples, although only 55 percent only approved of a gay couple kissing in public.

Said Dennis: “I would say this, they should have every right to have public displays of affection. But don’€™t you feel awkward when you see some guy down his girlfriend’€™s throat? Get a room.”

“Forget gay couples, when straight couples make out it’€™s uncomfortable,” agreed Minihane.

“What makes it worse is if they’€™re doing a public display of affection to get a reaction, whether it’€™s heterosexual or homosexual,”  said Dennis.

Said Callahan: “It is awkward, that’€™s what people are saying. Awkward to see public displays of affection between two guys. Two girls it’€™s OK, two guys it’€™s weird. … It’€™s not uncomfortable, it’€™s confusing [for young kids.]”

Glenn Beck ranted Thursday after he alleged The Associated Press “raped” Bill Cosby with its treatment of him. During an interview with the AP, Cosby asked a sympathetic reporter if he could disregard and edit out the part on sexual assault allegations. The section of the interview eventually was made public, and this incited an angry Beck.

“A fool that Beck is,” said Minihane.

“You can’€™t blame the media in this case because there are victims going on the record telling their stories,” said Callahan. “People are turning on recorders and cameras and saying, ‘Tell me your story.'”

Said Minihane: “To the AP reporter’€™s point, there were no guidelines set before the interview, Cosby talked about it, the cameras were rolling and they played it.”
