Glenn Finally Has Something Nice to Say About Trump

Donald Trump gave the convocation at Liberty University on January 18, 2016. Glenn watched and listened, hoping to form a positive opinion he could share about Trump. It worked!

Proud and Protestant

The real estate mogul was loud and proud about his brand of religion: "I'm a Protestant. I'm very proud of it. Presbyterian to be exact. But I'm very proud of it. Very, very proud of it."

Two Corinthians Walk Into a Bar

Trump also quoted scripture, but it was a little awkward. His staff must have forgotten to prep him on the correct way to reference 2 Corinthians, so it came out "two Corinthians" and not "second Corinthians." The crowd responded with nervous laughter. Glenn thought Trump was telling a joke.

Let's Be Honest

A lot of people believe in God, but may not be regular church attenders or bible readers. It happens a lot, in fact, and that's okay---unless someone tries to make it sound like he is an active churchgoer or bible reader. Trump seems to fall into that category. It doesn't make him the devil or anything, but that whole honesty-is-the-best-policy thing is usually a good way to go.

Common Sense Bottom Line

After watching Donald Trump's convocation remarks at Liberty University, Glenn did some soul searching and realized he could actually say something positive about Donald Trump. Here's the good news according to Glenn: "I'm absolutely, positively sure that Donald Trump is not the Antichrist."

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

GLENN: Yesterday, Donald Trump was at Liberty University. And I was listening and watching what he had to say. And I thought to myself, "I have something good to say about him." And I want you to listen to this. Here it is.

DONALD: I'm a Protestant. I'm very proud of it. Presbyterian to be exact. But I'm very proud of it. Very, very proud of it. And we've got to protect -- because bad things are happening. Two Corinthians. Right? Two Corinthians 3:17. That's the whole ball game. Where the spirit of the Lord -- right?

(laughing)

GLENN: Stop. Stop. They're laughing. They're laughing at him. Because the first time I heard this, I thought he was saying, two Corinthians, you know, two Corinthians, they walk into the bar --

PAT: And there's three Thessalonians across the bar from him.

GLENN: Like, you three Thessalonians, us two Corinthians are going to kick your butt.

PAT: Then two Johns come in. Wait. I think it's 2 John, and I think it's 2 Corinthians.

GLENN: Yeah. So they're laughing. They're actually at his -- listening to him and they're laughing at him. You can hear them laughing in the background. And he doesn't know. And it's really bad because it shows that no one on his staff went before and said, "No, no. Don, it's 2 Corinthians. Remember, 2 Corinthians." I got it. I got it. Two Corinthians. "No, it's 2 Corinthians. That's really important. Everyone will know you've never picked up a Bible in your life if you say two Corinthians."

STU: Yeah. He's never looked at it before. Let's be honest about it.

GLENN: No, he's never heard anybody say, I want to read from 2 Corinthians.

STU: Which is fine.

PAT: Which is fine.

GLENN: No, it's totally fine. Totally fine.

PAT: It's only not fine when you're pretending.

STU: Yeah, when you're lying about it.

GLENN: Yeah, because I think there's a special I'm sorry place for you to go to if you're lying about the Bible. You know what I mean?

STU: Not if you're lying for your own personal benefit though. That's much better, right?

GLENN: If you're lying for personal gain, no. There's a special I'm sorry place where you're required to say I'm sorry.

STU: Really? So if you're lying about God for your own personal gain, that's somehow bad?

GLENN: That's somehow bad. I don't know all the ins and outs of that. Do you guys want to hear the good news?

STU: I thought that was it, like he actually pronounced Corinthians correct.

GLENN: No, I honestly was waiting for the joke. Two Corinthians, right? That's the whole ballgame. Two Corinthians, they walk into the bar -- I was expecting him to go there.

Here's the good news. I haven't been able to say this about Bill Clinton, although I was a little wishy-washy about Bill Clinton. I was more convinced on Barack Obama, all right? But I'm absolutely positively sure that Donald Trump is not the Antichrist.

STU: Really?

GLENN: Yeah, because I think the Antichrist would be more clever than saying two Corinthians. He knew both of them, am I right, Pat? He knew both the first Corinthian and the second Corinthian that wrote that thing.

(laughter)

STU: So I'm reading P-salms.

GLENN: P-salms is great. It's great.

STU: It's not as good as The Art Of the Deal.

GLENN: So you know the Antichrist is not going to say, I was reading P-salms.

STU: Right.

GLENN: You got that down. You got that down. So he's not the Antichrist. That's something we could say that's good.

STU: Though I would expect the Antichrist would come up with a trick to make you believe that he's not the Antichrist.

GLENN: I have thought about that. Because I thought about that with Clinton. And I thought about it deeply with this guy. I don't think so.

PAT: I think he's more suave too. I personally believe that the Antichrist will be more suave than Donald Trump. Don't you think so? He'll dress better even though he's a billionaire. He'll look better, even though this guy is a billionaire. I think he will.

GLENN: I don't think so. I think the Antichrist can look an awful lot like al-Baghdadi. I'm just saying could look like al-Baghdadi. Not necessarily al-Baghdadi.

PAT: Uh-huh.

STU: Hmm.

GLENN: That's starting his own army of Armageddon. I'm just saying.

PAT: Well, he certainly is not suave. So that wouldn't fit --

GLENN: No. No.

STU: I think people now will is he with us now? (?)

GLENN: I thought he was for Cruz.

STU: Yeah, no.

GLENN: Now, he's saying he's not the Antichrist. I don't know. Maybe he's for Trump.

STU: You're a political chameleon. You really are.

GLENN: I really am. Okay. All right. So we have that.

STU: I can't believe the actual two Corinthians thing happened, and it happened at liberty, Right?

GLENN: Yeah, listen to it again. And listen to the crowd. It's sad. (?)

DONALD: I'm a protestant. I'm very proud of it. Presbyterian to be exact. But I'm very proud of it. Very, very proud of it. And we've got to protect because bad things are happening. Two Corinthians, right? Two Corinthians 3:17. That's the whole ball game. Where the spirit of the Lord -- right? Where the spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. And here this is Liberty College, Liberty University, but it is so true.

STU: That's so sad. He's just trying -- somebody was like, what if you read this and it kind of sounds like liberty?

PAT: But, again, nobody in his camp knew it was 2 Corinthians. No one said that to him.

GLENN: Or they just expected him to know. Here is this.

STU: Yeah, they probably expected him to know.

GLENN: I mean, I quoted that, when I was at Liberty University. There is liberty.

STU: But you knew it was second --

GLENN: Well, it's two Corinthians. I don't know which one wrote it. Either the second Corinthian or the first Corinthian. Sure, one was great. But when they got their heads together and there were two of them. You should see what they said. Back in a minute.

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
