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.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
