Try holding Donald Trump up to this litmus test for leadership - then try Ben Carson

On radio Monday, Glenn shared a passage of scripture - familiar to many for it's frequent use at weddings. "Love is patient. Love is kind. Love does not boast."

Glenn invited listeners to think of those verses in a different way.

"May I give this to you as a litmus test?" he said.

He then proceeded to profile himself against the test, followed by Donald Trump and then Ben Carson. The results were pretty mind opening.


Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors.

GLENN: I'm going to -- let me share something with you. We all know this because it's -- it's read at so many weddings. Love is patient. Love is kind. Love does not boast. It's not arrogant. It's not rude. It doesn't insist on its own way. It's not resentful or irritably. It doesn't rejoice in wrongdoing, but it rejoices with the truth. It bears all things, believes in all things, hopes in all things, endures in all things. You may kiss the bride.


That's how we hear this all the time, right? We hear that over and over and over again. And then we have it, and we're like, "Ah, it's my favorite scripture because it's the only one I really know. I heard it at somebody's wedding. And whatever that one is, I want that read at my wedding because it will put my wife or husband in place and make sure they understand, you're going to be patient and kind and you're not going to be arrogant and you're not going to insist on your own way!"

May I -- may I give this to you as a litmus test. Let me give this to you as something I did last night as I was laying in bed and reading this.

I took out love. Now, in some scriptures it's charity. In some scriptures it's love. It's actually neither. The Greek word is agape, which is the pure love of Christ. It is the self-sacrificing love of God. It is what we have for our children. The minute they're born, something goes wrong with your children, you're immediately like, "I'll take it. Give it to me. Give it to me. Give it to me." That's agape. Where you are willing to do whatever it takes to your own demise because it's the right thing.

Now, let's talk out agape, charity, love, whatever. Insert your name here. Glenn is patient. No, uh-uh. Glenn is kind. Try to be. Glenn does not boast.


Glenn is not arrogant. Uh-uh. Glenn's not rude. Not a chance. Glenn doesn't insist on his way. Glenn's not resentful or irritable. Glenn doesn't rejoice in wrongdoing. That's the only one that I could say I was pretty good on. I was like, "I got that one." Well, not so -- sometimes when somebody gets it, I'm like, "Yes!" But he rejoices with the truth. That one I got.

No matter what the truth is, I do rejoice in the truth. Bears all things. Not so much. Believes in all things. Uh-uh. Hopes in all things. Eh, if you believe hope is a step away from despair, I got it. And endures all things. Not with grace. I suck on that list.

Now, may I ask if your daughter or your son says, "I'm dating somebody great." Really, what's her name? "Harry." Really. Is Harry patient? Is Harry kind? Does Harry not boast? Is he arrogant? Is he rude?

This is a way for you to judge not only yourself, but also anybody who comes around you, anybody who wants to date your children, anybody you're supposed to go work for, anybody you're trying to hire.

How about this one? You think I flunked? Donald Trump is patient. Donald Trump is kind. Donald Trump does not boast. Donald Trump is not arrogant. Donald Trump is not rude. Donald Trump does not insist on his own way. Donald Trump is not resentful. Donald Trump is not irritable. Donald Trump does not rejoice in wrongdoing. Donald Trump rejoices with the truth. Donald Trump bears all things, believes in all things, hopes in all things, endures all things.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: Now, the reason why I'm bringing this up into politics is because I want you to know -- let me give you another one.

Ben Carson is patient. Uh-huh. Ben Carson is kind. Yeah. Ben Carson does not boast, is not arrogant, is not rude. He doesn't insist on his own way. He's not resentful or irritable. He doesn't rejoice in wrongdoing. He rejoices with the truth. He bears all things, believes in all things, hopes in all things, endures all things. I think he's pretty good at that.

Now, here's the secret, this is the first step. It says in the -- in the verses right before. You could give away all your stuff. You could sell all your stuff and give it to charity. You can be at nursing homes every day. I mean, it doesn't say nursing homes. This is the gospel according to Glenn. You can do all of these things. But unless you have this, unless you have charity, unless you have love, unless you have agape, everything you do is worthless. Everything you do is worthless. It won't work. None of it will work.

So we have to start looking for this in ourselves, looking for this in our leaders, and knowing that's not all that is required. That's just the basic fundamental.

POLL: Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

Just one day after Hamas’s surprise attack on Israel, which left over 1,400 people Israelis dead, 34 different student groups from Harvard University wrote a joint statement pinning the blame of Hamas' terrorist attack on Israel. In the following days after publishing this callous statement, these students staged a walkout and rallied in support of the Palestinians. As Glenn has discussed, this is not an isolated event, and campuses across the country have hosted similar rallies where antisemitic jargon like "we don't want no Jew state" and "globalize the intifada" is freely spewed.

Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

While the Universities have not officially backed any of these rallies or student groups that organized them, they haven't stopped them either, which raises the question: should they? On one hand, these are American students in American Universities, who are protected by the First Amendment. On the other hand, history tells us how dangerous antisemitism is if left unchecked; and what of the rights of Jewish students to be safe on the campuses they pay to attend? Let us know what you think in the poll below:

POLL: What do YOU think Israel should do about Gaza?

Should Israel take over Gaza after defeating Hamas? This contentious historical question has resurfaced amid Israel's retaliatory airstrikes in Gaza following Hamas' terror attacks, which resulted in the greatest death of Jews since the Holocaust. Biden and the global elites have warned Israel against occupation of the Palestinian territory. When asked on 60 Minutes if he would support the Israeli occupation of Gaza, Biden said, “I think it would be a big mistake.” Today Glenn responded to Biden’s answer: “I don't think it's a mistake to occupy."

This has been a long-standing, polarizing issue that is now more relevant than ever, and we want to hear YOUR thoughts. Let us know in the poll below:

Would you support an Israeli occupation of Gaza?

Do you think the Israeli airstrikes in Gaza are justified?

Do you think a two-state solution is still possible?

Funding IRAN?! Here are the TOP 5 reasons Joe Biden should be IMPEACHED

On September 12th, the House announced an official impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden with allegations of abuse of power, obstruction, and corruption. Naturally, the media quickly jumped to the President’s aid claiming that “there is no evidence to support these claims” and that the whole affair is a witch hunt.

If you’ve been listening to Glenn, you know that this is simply not the case. Biden has been committing impeachment-worthy deeds before he even stepped foot into the Oval Office—there’s no shortage of evidence to justify this inquiry. Here are 5 scathing reasons why Biden should be impeached:

He was responsible for the Afghanistan withdrawal disaster.

The Biden administration began with the US's disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan. Under his watch, Biden left thousands of US citizens and allies stranded in the Taliban's hostile regime. Countless Afghan allies have been murdered by the Taliban due to the Biden administration's negligence.

He was involved with Hunter Biden's illicit foreign business dealings.

There is clear evidence that Joe Biden was more than aware of his son Hunter's foreign business dealings. From suspicious money laundering through the Biden family's accounts to Joe's involvement with important business meetings within Hunter's company, there is mounting evidence to warrant an impeachment inquiry.

He lied about his involvement with Hunter's business dealings.

Not only did Biden involve himself with his son's less-than-legal foreign business ventures, but he lied to the American people about it too, claiming he had NO KNOWLEDGE of what was going on.

He failed to protect the Southern border, and actively made it worse.

Biden singlehandedly turned the Southern border into the worst illegal immigration crisis in US history. He reversed many policies set in place by the Trump administration, resulting in 2.3 million illegal immigrants flooding into the US under his watch, a historic high.

Biden reversed the Trump-era policy that halted all funds going into Iran. The Wall Street Journal revealed the smoking-gun evidence proving that Iran trained AND funded Hamas before its gruesome terror attacks against Israel. Moreover, shortly before the attacks, the Biden administration unfroze $6 BILLION dollars of Iran's assets as a part of a prisoner swap. On top of this, Biden resumed $200 million worth of "humanitarian aid" to Gaza that Trump had ended—because the money was being used to buy weapons for Hamas.

From groceries to house prices, everything seems to get more expensive, and you can thank Biden for that. Glenn recently exposed the truth about 'Bidenomics' and the havoc it has wrought on the American economy. Here are five economic milestones during the Biden administration that expose the glaring track record of "Bidenomics:"

In July 2022, the inflation rate hit 9.1 percent, a 40-year record high.

In June 2022, gas hit an all time record high of $5 a gallon for the national average.

61 percent of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck as of this September.

Interest rates reached a 15-year high at 5.25 percent and are still increasing.

Americans have $1 trillion in collective credit card debt, in part due to food/staple pieces being very high.
