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.

Elon Musk calls Biden a 'damp sock puppet,' says the president treats Americans 'like fools'

Elon Musk, co-founder and CEO of Tesla, took to Twitter on Thursday to remind President Joe Biden that he left a certain key player out of a discussion about the future of building electric vehicles in the United States.

After meeting with General Motors Chair and CEO Mary Barra and Ford Motor Co. CEO Jim Farley, among others — but not including Musk — at the White House, Biden tweeted, "I meant it when I said the future was going to be made right here in America. Companies like GM and Ford are building more electric vehicles here at home than ever before."

Musk first responded by tweeting, "Starts with a T, Ends with an A, ESL in the middle."

Later in the thread, Musk seemed to agree with Twitter user Kim Paquette by tweeting: "Biden is treating the American public like fools."

Finally, Musk tweeted his pièce de résistance (at least for the day): "Biden is a damp [sock] puppet in human form."

This isn't the first time Musk has taken issue with the current administration. In December, he railed against Biden's "Build Back Better Act", saying he's deeply concerned about how the multitrillion-dollar bill would increase the national debt. In October, Musk slammed the administration's proposed tax on unrealized capital gains, warning Americans that "eventually, they run out of other people's money and then they come for you."

And who could forget Musk's spectacular Twitter spat with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass)? In case you missed it, Warren called Musk a freeloader after Time magazine named him "Person of the Year." Musk shot back with, "If you opened your eyes for 2 seconds, you would realize I will pay more taxes than any American in history this year. Don’t spend it all at once … oh wait you did already."

On his radio program Thursday, BlazeTV's Glenn Beck spoke out in Musk's defense. He praised Musk's "American spirit," noting the South African-born American entrepreneur's humble beginnings.

"Do you know that when Elon Musk and his brother launched their first company, Zip2, Elon was living in his office and he was showering at the YMCA? Did you know that? But he was in America. He's got more American spirit in him than most people I see every day. He's gone from showering at the YMCA to now mapping out a trip to Mars and he'll do it. Why? Because he has that American spirit in him."

When Biden was given the keys to the Oval Office in January 2021, gas was $2.50 a gallon and the inflation rate was 1.4%. Today gas is at $3.32 a gallon and the inflation rate is at 7% ... and STILL RISING. These are just 12 months of numbers, but we’re clearly in a worrying decline. While the economy has opened up more post-COVID, it’s not just getting worse — we’re going IN REVERSE.

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard (and the very top of his studio ceiling) to explain what’s happening to inflation and why it’s so hard for your family to afford basic goods and groceries. It’s not “corporate greed,” as Democrats have been telling you. The Biden administration wants to continue to spend trillions of dollars to “reinvent capitalism,” but that’s in addition to the trillions that are being pumped out IN THE SHADOWS.

Glenn exposes what the Fed has been doing behind closed doors and shows us the tidal wave that’s about to hit. He’s looked at the numbers, and they're frightening. Carol Roth, former Wall Street investment banker and author of “The War on Small Business,” gives advice to Americans who want to protect their checking and savings accounts before it’s too late.

The stock markets have taken a nosedive in the biggest downtrend since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. But that's nothing compared to what's coming thanks to our government's embrace of modern monetary theory, warned BlazeTV's Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"It really is important that you understand what's happening to us," Glenn stated. "Modern monetary theory is truly the [fuel] ... for the great reset. It is the idea that we can print as much money and spend as much money as we want," he explained.

"Then the next step is to release the Federal Reserve digital currency and make payments by other currencies [including cryptocurrencies] illegal," he continued. "And you're seeing it happen now in real time. Why would they do this? Because you cannot print this kind of money without having absolute control over how it is spent."

Glenn broke down the steps powerful political organizations — like the Federal Reserve — will take to end currency competition and enact a Federal digital dollar, which will allow for the government to have complete control over how we spend our money.

"This is what's coming. This is coming quickly, and events will make it move faster. For instance, why is Joe Biden basically giving Ukraine to Russia? He's giving it to them. He he knows Russia's not afraid of him. Putin knows that [Biden] is not going to do anything ... neither is NATO. They're not going to do anything," Glenn said.

"It's because war resets everything. War is the best great resetter. Changes boundaries. It changes borders. It changes laws. It changes societies. It changes currencies. It changes everything. And in the end you just want the war to stop. And so you you accept whatever it is the terms are that you're going to have to live under now. We're in very, very dangerous times. The only way to survive this is to know why they are dangerous times."

Chances are, you've noticed that many large companies have decided to become woke activists, despite the fact that alienating half your customer base is a terrible business strategy.

This woke shift isn't being driven by the usual market forces. It's the Great Reset's ESG score system at work, Glenn Beck said on "GlennTV." Under the “environmental, social, and governance” score system, companies will no longer make decisions based on what you, the consumer, want. Now, it's all about what those in power deem society should want. And it's not just businesses that are affected, he explained.
