Glenn to Trump: 'Stop demonizing the companies and start fixing the problems'

Donald Trump swore off Oreos over Nabisco's closure of a plant in Chicago, which will be moving to Mexico due to burdensome corporate taxes. Glenn took Trump to task over this comment, questioning how Trump is being touted as a Republican conservative.

He's acting more like a Republican progressive, Glenn argued, adding progressivism is a cancer that kills the Constitution.

"[Trump] says, 'I'm going to make us competitive.' How, when you're booing Nabisco for moving when we have the highest corporate tax rate? How, when you're implying that you should boycott Oreos because they're now in Mexico?" Glenn said.

Here's what Glenn said actually happens.

"If you stay in the United States, you become the Twinkies and you go out of business. And then, instead of having a company, like Ford still at least owns the company, instead, you go out of business and a Mexican company buys Twinkies. And then they make them there. They sell them here. And all of the money goes back to Mexico. Which do you prefer Mr. Constitutional conservative Donald Trump? Help me out," Glenn said.

DONALD: You know, Mexico is the new China. The other day, Nabisco -- Oreos. Right? Oreos. I love Oreos. I'll never eat them again. Okay? I'll never eat them again.

No. Nabisco closes a plant they just announced a couple of days ago in Chicago, and they're moving the plant to Mexico. Now, why? Why? Why?

GLENN: Stop. Stop. Stop. Populist. Populist. Populist. What is he doing? Don't move to Mexico, the populist thing to say, and the crowd reacts.

Now, when I heard this clip over the weekend, I thought, wait a minute. Now, why is Nabisco moving? He immediately says, I'll never eat another Oreo again. I'll never eat another Oreo again. He goes on.

DONALD: Have you heard my story? My favorite story is Ford. You've heard the story with Ford? Do we want to hear it again or not? Yes! All right. I mean, that's a big one. So Ford, great company, they're building a $2.5 billion car factory in Mexico.

GLENN: Okay. He hates this. Let me just point out two things. First of all, Ford is the only one that didn't take a bailout from the United States government. So if you're not taking a bailout from the United States government, you have to make your company work.

Why is Ford moving to Mexico? Because they love Mexicans? Because they love Mexico so much? Or because they cannot afford to do business here in the United States? And that is the reason Nabisco moved. A constitutional conservative, a small government conservative, Ronald Reagan does not stand up there and say, I'm never going to eat another Oreo again. Ronald Reagan stands up and says, they moved their plant. They lost all those jobs. Why? Because they were chased out by the high corporate taxes. The highest -- and this is why Nabisco is moving. Because we have the highest corporate tax in the world. He doesn't say the rich should pay more. He says, we have the highest corporate tax in the world. And we're going to lose more companies. Nabisco, I'm president, you don't have to worry about moving and we don't have to worry about losing those jobs because I will make us competitive again. What does Donald Trump do? He becomes a populist and makes people boo Nabisco. Boo Oreos. At that rate, you'll lose every single company in America that counts because we have the highest corporate tax rates. Stop demonizing the companies and start fixing the problems to make us competitive again.

He says, I'm going to make us competitive. How, when you're booing Nabisco for moving when we have the highest corporate tax rate? How, when you're implying that you should boycott Oreos because they're now in Mexico? Here's what happens: If you stay in the United States, you become the Twinkie and you go out of business. And then, instead of having a company, like Ford still at least owns the company, instead, you go out of business and a Mexican company buys Twinkies. And then they make them there. They sell them here. And all of the money goes back to Mexico. Which do you prefer Mr. Constitutional conservative Donald Trump? Help me out. And I'd like to hear from his supporters. Help me out.

He loves government health care. These are all -- this isn't in the past. This is on the campaign trail. He loves Canadian health care. He says he's for a flat tax, but he wants the rich to pay more. He says that the reason why we had the stock market crash yesterday is because of poor planning. And boycott Oreos because they moved because of the highest corporate tax rate in the world. Help me out. Tell me exactly. How is this guy a Republican conservative? I'll tell you who he is. He is a Republican progressive.

You want more of the same stuff, except with attitude, in your face, a bully, then vote for Donald Trump. You want conservative principles, constitutional principles, lower taxes, lower corporate tax rates, freedom in insurance, you're not going to get it from a guy who says the Canadian thing is good. I'm sorry. But I don't understand it. Oh, and, by the way, Rupert Murdoch says that now that Trump is in, we should get another guy in. Another guy who is a great conservative -- one of the best mayors ever. Bloomberg. Because he's a Republican as well.

Progressive Republicans. Please. Don't let us have to spend the next four or eight years trying to teach the Republicans what you already know. Progressivism is a cancer that kills the Constitution. Now, do you need to have an up-close lesson that Republicans are the ones who started it? And I love these people who say, Glenn Beck is just fighting for the establishment. Are you out of your mind? Are you out of your mind?

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
