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.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
