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.

Earlier this year, Coca-Cola became the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But now, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appears to be shifting directions.

The Washington Examiner reported that the company issued a conciliatory statement after conspicuously failing to appear on a published list of hundreds of corporations and individuals that signed a statement denouncing the Georgia voting bill.

"We believe the best way to make progress now is for everyone to come together and listen respectfully, share concerns, and collaborate on a path forward. We remained open and productive conversations with advocacy groups and lawmakers who may have differing views," the company said. "It's time to find common ground. In the end, we all want the same thing – free and fair elections, the cornerstone of our democracy."

Then last week, Coca-Cola Co.'s new general counsel, Monica Howard Douglas, told members of the company's global legal team that the diversity initiative announced by her predecessor, Bradley Gayton, is "taking a pause for now." Gayton resigned unexpectedly from the position on April 21, after only eight months on the job, to serve as a strategic consultant to Chairman and CEO James Quincey.

"Why is Coca-Cola 'taking a pause' on all of these? Because you have been standing up," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. "You and others have been standing up. Your voice, it's the power of one. Your voice makes a difference."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.
