Trump Comes in Two Place, Gives Humble Speech Without Thanking Ivanka

Donald Trump's speech following the vote in Iowa was uncharacteristically humble and short. With 14 different polls showing him leading in Iowa, the defeat likely came as a shock.

While Glenn didn't want to revel in another man's defeat, he did comment on the awkward speech.

"It was not a comfortable moment." Glenn said. "Now, losing in a Donald Trump family where you're sick of winning all the time, you would think it would be refreshing. But they're not used to losing, I guess. I guess that's what it is. But it looked odd."

During the speech, Trumped thanked his entire family except for one very obvious omission --- his daughter Ivanka who served as his campaign manager in Iowa. Not only did he fail to thank her, she and her husband were physically separated from the rest of the family.

"She's on the right-hand side of him," Glenn described. "And the rest of the family is on the left-hand. And he says, 'I just want to thank everybody for all their hard work, and I want to thank my family.' And he looks over to the left, and he introduces each and every one of them and thanks them. "My boys gave speeches. They gave three today, and it was incredible." And he stops and he kind of looks over at Ivanka and he says, "And we might buy a farm."

It was an awkward moment that no one in the media seems to have noticed. Co-host Stu Burguiere attributed it to the inaccurate polls and not coming in first.

"And none of those polls had him in two place, which is where he wound up," Stu said.

Talk about awkward.

"I think it's second place," Glenn corrected. "Like 2 Corinthians."

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

GLENN: Donald Trump, his speech -- and I don't want to say anything negative about Donald Trump today, but Donald Trump, that was a scary family coming out there. It was --

PAT: Scary in what way? I mean, they looked fantastic. They're all beautiful people.

STU: You mean -- because you made mention of the time they just looked like --

GLENN: It looked like they just walked out of a room where they were beating themselves up or tearing themselves up or being yelled at or something. It was like they were all scared.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: You know what I mean? And I'm not saying they were scared of him because he was acting the same way. It was not a comfortable moment. Now, losing in a Donald Trump family where you're sick of winning all the time, you would think it would be refreshing.

(chuckling)

But they're not used to losing, I guess. I guess that's what it is. But it looked odd. And here's the biggest thing -- and I haven't heard anyone comment on this. Ivanka was the one who ran his campaign. Okay? Did you know that? She was the campaign manager in Iowa.

STU: No.

GLENN: Okay. So Ivanka was the campaign manager in Iowa. So he comes out, and the whole family -- Ivanka is on one side. She's on the right-hand side of him. Okay? And the rest of the family is on the left-hand. And he says, "I just want to thank everybody for all their hard work, and I want to thank my family." And he looks over to the left, and he introduces each and every one of them and thanks them. "My boys gave speeches. They gave three today, and it was incredible." And he stops and he kind of looks over at Ivanka and he says, "And we might buy a farm."

(laughter)

And it was like you didn't even recognize your daughter who was the campaign manager. You didn't even say, "Hey, and Ivanka who did a great job." It was odd. It was really an odd -- I thought it was.

PAT: You know he was pissed off that he didn't win because every poll -- and he loves to cite polls, and he did it again last night. But -- what? -- 14 polls in a row had him beating Ted Cruz, and then he lost. And then he lost by four. So it was not a good night for Donald Trump.

STU: And none of those polls had him in two place, which is where he wound up.

PAT: In two place?

JEFFY: Two place?

GLENN: I think it's second place. Like 2 Corinthians.

STU: Oh, I don't know anything about this. Of course, that proves it by me saying that --

(laughter)

GLENN: Right.

PAT: But can we get to what really happened last night?

GLENN: What happened? I'm not sure.

(music)

PAT: All right. I had to get it going. I had to ramp up.

GLENN: All right. It was a little rough.

PAT: It was.

GLENN: A little rough.

PAT: But here we were talking about we shouldn't have mentioned God last night.

GLENN: I didn't say that.

PAT: It threw me into a tizzy.

GLENN: I didn't say that. I liked the fact that when he first came out, the first thing he said was give it -- and did you notice there was another thing? Notice another thing, and I think this is really fascinating. First of all, I didn't like his speech. It went on for 40 minutes, for the love of Pete.

JEFFY: It only felt like an hour too.

GLENN: Yeah, it was a long speech.

JEFFY: Oh, my gosh.

GLENN: But did you notice how humble he was? At least this is what I felt. He came out and he was shaking hands with the crowd and stuff. He seemed really, really humble. Then he gives praise to God. Then he thanks everybody. And I'm like, "Stop thanking everybody, man. Stop." Just give America a view -- which he did, after he thanked everybody.

STU: Wrong order. That was the only problem with that.

GLENN: Yeah, it was wrong order.

STU: You thanked 19 people that --

GLENN: You know what that is? I think that's his humility.

STU: I think so too.

GLENN: I don't know if anyone will notice or recognize that. He came out and immediately gave praise to everyone else.

PAT: Uh-huh.

STU: What was that song again, Pat? I didn't hear any of the lyrics, unfortunately.

PAT: Really?

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: I did.

STU: I had my headphones on.

PAT: It was loud. You really didn't hear that --

GLENN: How many headphones?

STU: You were singing earlier. Right?

PAT: Well, yeah, it went a little something like...

GLENN: No, I don't...

(music)

GLENN: Okay. I don't think that's -- I don't think that's helpful.

JEFFY: Well, that's not negative. It's a positive song.

GLENN: I don't think it's a positive song. I don't think it is.

JEFFY: It's a positive song.

A new Pew Research Center report shows the death toll in the United States from COVID-19 is "heavily concentrated" in Democratic congressional districts.

According to the analysis, more than half of all COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. occurred in just 44 (approximately 10 percent of) congressional districts, and 41 of those 44 hardest-hit districts are represented by Democrats, while only three are represented by Republicans.

"A new Pew Research Center analysis of data on official reports of COVID-19 deaths, collected by the John Hopkins University Center for Systems Science and Engineering, finds that, as of last week, nearly a quarter of all the deaths in the United States attributed to the coronavirus have been in just 12 congressional districts – all located in New York City and represented by Democrats in Congress. Of the more than 92,000 Americans who had died of COVID-19 as of May 20 (the date that the data in this analysis was collected), nearly 75,000 were in Democratic congressional districts," Pew reported.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere argued that, while the coronavirus should never have been made into a partisan issue, the study certainly makes a strong statement in favor of GOP leadership.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) once predicted the coronavirus death rate would be between 4 and 5 percent, but they've just come out with a new report and those predictions have been adjusted significantly.

According to the CDC's latest data, the fatality rate among Americans showing COVID-19 symptoms is 0.4 percent. And an estimated 35 percent who are infected by the virus will never have any symptoms. Therefore, the CDC is now estimating COVID-19 kills less than 0.3 percent of people infected.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere recalled when the mainstream media went into overdrive, hammering President Donald Trump for predicting the final COVID-19 death rate would be "under one percent."

Looks like the president was right all along.

Michigan barber Karl Manke isn't a troublemaker. He's a law-abiding citizen who did everything possible to financially survive during the COVID-19 lockdown. pandemic. Eventually, he had no other option: he had to reopen his business in defiance of Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's stay-at-home orders.

In an interview on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program," Manke, 77, told Glenn, "I'm not backing down" despite Whitmer's seemingly vindictive attempts to shut down his business.

Shortly after reopening, Manke was ticketed for violating Whitmer's stay-at-home order and charged with a misdemeanor. When he still refused to close his doors, the governor's office went a step further and suspended his barber license.

"It's kind of a vindictive thing," said Manke. "I've become a worm in her brain ... and she is going full force, illegally, when legislatures told her that she was out of place and this was not her assignment, she decided to take it anyway."

On Thursday, the Shiawassee County Circuit Judge refused to issue a preliminary injunction against Manke. Read more on this update here.

Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.
