Disturbing New Story About Trump Fits His Style

The Context

A disturbing article published Sunday in the Daily Mail chronicles a respected BBC journalist's documentary of Donald Trump from years ago. Selena Scott's account of her two weeks with the real-estate mogul echo the modus operandi he's displayed time again --- sweet talking and charming, followed by attacks and slander if he doesn't get his way.

White Leather & Beautiful Things

Ms. Scott described a particularly creepy encounter aboard Trump's private plane: "We were 30,000 feet on Trump's private jet, flying to Florida, when he showed me his white leather double bed. "I like beautiful things," he purred seductively. "That's why I like you so much." This must be the "sweet talking" portion of her experience. Ewww. It might be worth noting that Trump was married to Marla Maples at the time.

When the Shark Bites

Reminiscent of how Trump responded to Megyn Kelly's interview with Vanity Fair, Ms. Scott claims the so-called billionaire did not take lightly to her refusal --- or her documentary which showed him contradicting himself on his business holdings --- describing him as a shark that strikes with speed and vicious intent when it smells blood in the water. "I showed both assertions in my film with many other inconsistencies with the telling soundtrack 'It Ain’t Necessarily So'. Trump went ballistic. Over many years he sent me a series of intimidating letters branding me ‘sleazy, unattractive, obnoxious and boring.’ He said I was ‘totally uptight’, and that I had begged him for a date. In his dreams!"

Enter NBC

You'd think the media would report such a story if they knew, right? Well, they do. It seems NBC is more than aware of Ms. Scott's documentary --- the network purchased the rights to the story. So why haven't they aired it yet?

"I'm telling you, they're setting Hillary Clinton's win up. That's all they're doing," Glenn said Monday on The Glenn Beck Program. "NBC just bought a documentary from the BBC because they feel it's going to be relevant soon. Not relevant now. But relevant as soon as the guy gets the nomination --- if it is Donald Trump."

As Glenn has stated on air numerous times. The media are biding their time, waiting for Trump to win the nomination before revealing the skeletons in his closet. These revelations will be extremely distasteful the the American people, setting up Hillary for a win.

Common Sense Bottom Line

"The same thing is happening that happened with Obama, but for a different reason. They held things back for Obama because they wanted him to win," Glenn said. "They're holding things back from Donald Trump until he gets the nomination, and then they're going to slaughter him. They're going to slaughter him."

 

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

GLENN: There was a disturbing, disturbing article that came out. And it's just like the press to do this. I'm telling you, they're setting Hillary Clinton's win up. That's all they're doing.

NBC just bought a documentary from the BBC because they feel it's going to be relevant soon. Not relevant now. But relevant as soon as the guy gets the nomination, if it is Donald Trump. And his supporters seem to be, you know, like they're all -- they all seem like they're coming out.

And NBC bought this unbelievable documentary about what happened to a woman who is kind of the Diane Sawyer of England. She was the first woman on what they call breakfast shows, the morning shows. She was the 5 o'clock news anchor on the BBC. She now works for Sky News. She's worked for NBC, she's worked for CBS. I just want to read some of this.

Even by extraordinary standards of Donald Trump, this is a creepy shadow, as she says. We were 30,000 feet on Trump's private jet, flying to Florida, when he showed me his white leather double bed. "I like beautiful things," he purred seductively. "That's why I like you so much."

This was just one of the many revealing and excruciating moments during the two weeks I spent with Donald Trump in 1995, while making a 60-minute profile of him for ITV.

Let's see. It's curious -- it is a curious truth about Donald Trump that he believes the more obnoxious he is, the more successful he becomes. Intimidation is a brutal weapon he's used all his life when sweet-talking fails to get his way.

Now, remember what I posted last week. I said, "He first sweet-talks. He tries to charm you into it. Then he starts to brutalize you. He starts to scare you. And then if you don't give up, he takes you out." Remember? I said, "That's who this man is."

So it comes as no surprise to me that this is a tactic that he uses to such an effect in the strangest wooing of American electorate in the nation's history. The more he trashes people in America, the higher his approval ratings. When he insults Mexicans, calls for a ban on Muslims, disrespects women, and declares that he will bomb the crap out of the Islamic State, the cheers go up.

Every time a commentator says he's gone too far, he proves he has found the direct link to the dark heart of the American psyche. As Iowa citizens vote in the first ballot to determine the Republican candidate for the White House, many are asking, "Who is the real Donald Trump? Is he a regular guy who speaks the truth as he sees it, or a bigmouth who appears to think he's the star of a reality TV show?" I think I have a unique perspective. She writes, "Trump is a shark. A shark has no yesterday and no tomorrow, just the next meal, the next victim to be destroyed and consumed. And a shark must keep moving or die. That's Trump. And let me tell you why I feel that."

Now, again, this is a BBC anchor.

I would like to say it would be easy to have been overwhelmed by the tidal wave of flattery and attention I received from Trump when I arrived in New York to make a documentary about the man now dividing America with his rhetoric. Checking into my suite at the exclusive Plaza Hotel, which Trump then owned, overlooking Central Park, I was greeted by a forest of blood red roses, with a tasteful, handwritten note that simply said, "Donald."

Later that day, I went in to meet Trump at his Manhattan office, and his secretary Norma had been well briefed. Although we had never met, she welcomed me as, quote, her dear, dear friend.

She ushered me into his paneled board room, high above the city with magnificent views of the skyline, where I was greeted, not just by Trump, but by a falex (phonetic) of suited male business associates.

"Gentlemen," said Trump, "I'd like you to meet our new partner in the deal, the legendary Selina Scott."

Now, I prided myself on being a pragmatic interviewer, well-versed in the wiles of those seeking to make favorable impressions on the camera. But now I was beginning to feel a little uneasy. As I was paraded before Trump's grinning acolytes, these words began to swim in my head, "Partner in the deal? What did that mean? Did he think that he had won me over and I was somehow incorporated into his publicity department, already wrapped up into his deluded sense of his own wonderfulness?"

Trump was turning on the full wattage of what he perceived to be his irresistible charm to women, but there was a great deal more of his theatricality to come. As viewer of last week's Channel 4 documentary, The Madness of Donald Trump would have seen, the station broadcasted an embarrassing clip of him dancing around me saying, "Isn't she beautiful? She doesn't think she's beautiful, but she's beautiful," as the camera caught me grimacing.

Now, think of this. This is from a British newspaper. The BBC aired this documentary last week. NBC has purchased it. But they're holding it back. Why?

PAT: It's unbelievable.

GLENN: How can the British press -- the same thing is happening that happened with Obama, but for a different reason. They held things back for Obama because they happened him to win. They're holding things back from Donald Trump until he gets the nomination, and then they're going to slaughter him. They're going to slaughter him.

This flattery came shortly after our first meeting and it was swiftly followed by Trump announcing, "She shares with Larry King an ability to charm and cajole you into revealing more than you intended, and she's also a lot better looking."

During the two weeks I spent with Trump, there would be helicopter rides over Manhattan, private jet flights on his lavish oceanside Florida estate, a trophy property once owned by one of the richest women in America. He invited me to a poolside party, boasted about his great skills as a billionaire businessman, and most tellingly, introduced me to the two most important women in his life, his then wife Marla and his mother Mary.

I believe it's not not too fanciful to suggest that the key to understanding Trump is his attitude toward women. As Megyn Kelly, the Fox News host, discovered when she asked him about his attitude to women, where he called women that he doesn't like fat pigs, dogs, slobs, and disgusting animals, the oily smile is replaced with a deep well of hate if he feels he has not emotionally seduced you.

This is true. This is absolutely true

PAT: Oh, yeah. No doubt about it.

GLENN: And Megyn Kelly, this is what's happening to Megyn Kelly. I know. I've been there. My 60-minute documentary exposed how through bluff, bombast, and braggadocio -- how do you say that?

PAT: Braggadocio.

GLENN: -- braggadocio, he had convinced the American business community he was far richer than he was. And that while the rest of his rivals were losers, he knew how to make the US great. This ability to blag people into believing that he was a commercial genius was vividly illustrated in a helicopter ride we took over New York.

Pointing to the Empire State Building, he said he owned it.

I asked, what? All of it?

Yep. 100 percent, he replied.

Later, forgetting that he had told me he wholly owned the building, he told me he owned 50 percent of it, which was greatly reduced. It was the same story with the Trump Taj Mahal Casino in Atlanta City. Wholly owned by me, he said. Are you sure, I asked. Well, maybe 80 percent, he demurred. Are you quite sure, I pressed. He replied, well, actually, it's 50 percent.

I showed both assertions in my film, with other inconsistencies, with the telling soundtrack It Ain't Necessarily So. Well, trump went ballistic. Over the many years, he sent me -- now, this is exactly what Megyn Kelly said is happening. Listen to this.

Over in years he sent me a series of intimidating letters branding me as sleazy, unattractive, obnoxious, and boring. He said I was totally uptight and that I had begged him for a date.

This vicious tirade was often accompanied by a fanzine newspaper cutting, which he purported to show how much money he was making. He scrawled across the top, "Selina, you're a major loser. Dear Selina, I hear your career is going terribly."

JEFFY: This guy, man.

PAT: Sound familiar?

GLENN: This is it.

PAT: You've been through it. Megyn Kelly is going through it.

GLENN: This is everybody who stands against him is going through it. This is his MO. I'm telling you, the guy is very dangerous.

In the meantime --

PAT: It's to the point of almost a psychosis.

GLENN: No, I think he is. I think there's psychosis. There's deep issues here.

This broadside was in stark contrast to the creepy chat-up line he deployed on the Trump jet where he showed me his bedroom. Later in the same plane, he persuaded Ruby Wax to rubbish me on the gray, while she tried to ingratiate herself with him. This harassment only stopped when I threatened to take legal action for stalking.

I return to my shark analogy: When a shark smells blood in the water, it strikes with speed and vicious intent. So with Trump. Any sign of vulnerability is exploited. He only understands when force is met with force.

Now, think of that. This is a guy who is going to be in charge of the nuclear codes.

PAT: Think of that too with Carly Fiorina and how she shut him down. I mean, she just --

JEFFY: Yeah.

PAT: Hit him in the face in that debate, and he stopped from that point on because he realized he wasn't going to get away with that with her. So when you smack him in the face like any other bully, he skulks off and tries it with someone else.

GLENN: So it's with some amusement that twenty years after I made that film, the giant NBC network in America has asked to buy my channel for interview about Trump, including all of the unused footage.

STU: Gee.

JEFFY: Oh, my gosh.

STU: What are they going to find in there? Times 20,000 documentaries this guy has done with different news people around the world, all the times he's been in front of the camera, all the unused footage. Gee, what are they going to do if this guy gets to the general? They're going to have a staff of 100 people for each one of them, going through all the footage, hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of hours that Donald Trump has forgotten about.

GLENN: Did anybody watch the documentary from Scotland?

STU: You've Been Trumped, or whatever? I actually haven't seen it.

GLENN: You have to watch it. It's unbelievable. He is -- it's this -- it's like this little seaside community, and he wanted to build a golf course. And it's this little seaside community. And first he goes in and he tries to buy all the old ladies flowers, and he's like, "Oh, you're so great. And, hey, can I buy your house?"

PAT: Like with Vera Coking.

JEFFY: Like everyone else.

GLENN: He does the same thing. He wined and dined everybody and said it's going to be great. And I'll find a great place -- I'll buy your house so you can find a really great place to live.

Well, this little seaside community, these are all people that have lived there -- like a lot of them are old ladies that have lived there since World War II. It's their husband -- their family was raised there. And it's a farming community. It's just this little sheep-farming community right on the seaside. It's beautiful.

Well, once they said no, he started trashing them. And saying that they were pigs. They lived like pigs. They were insane. They should be institutionalized. They're just -- they've lost all reason. Just trashed them.

PAT: Oh, man.

GLENN: And it's all on tape. And this documentary shows him saying these things and these little old ladies going, "I don't think I live like a pig."

(laughter)

When America sees this stuff, it's going to be lights out. And if you think the media is not going to play that, you're crazy.

STU: Yeah, and that was the most effective negative about Donald Trump that they tested in the Des Moines Register Poll was his use of eminent domain, taking people's private property for his own personal gain. In fact, they even used it as -- they included for government purposes. So like a -- a road or -- they made it actually more broad than the way that Trump wants to use it, which is specifically he tried to use it for his own personal gain and supported the Kelo decision which was, "Oh, well. Well, then the government can get more tax dollars, so it's okay to take people's private property."

The biggest negative that was tested out of all of them on Donald Trump. People inherently know that that's an absurd stance, that you would be able to take someone's stuff that they own, that they had built their whole lives in this community, and because he wants to build a golf course or a parking lot, that he should be able to come in with the power of the government and take it from them. And he still supports that to this day. It's not an old stance.

JEFFY: Well, what if they live like pigs.

STU: They live like pigs.

PAT: They live like pigs. They need to move.

GLENN: You're right. They should be -- you know what, they should come up and have to stand before a board and explain themselves: Sir or madam, what is it that you have contributed to society? And if they can't explain themselves, then we shouldn't keep them alive. I'm sorry.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."
