Trump: A New Low in Presidential Demeanor

Thank God I didn't watch the debate with my children last night.

How can we possibly teach our children how to behave, how to address people, how to talk? Within the first five minutes of the debate last night Donald Trump goes into his small hands. Had I been sitting there trying to teach my children about the Constitution and the process, I don't know what I would have said to them.

Who didn't sit there, if you were watching with your children, and have to have a conversation or at least feel like you were watching HBO after 11:00 PM? What the hell is going on with us? How can we possibly as conservatives tolerate this anymore?

Our society is coarse enough. Our children are under attack. You cannot expect us to be able to raise a strong generation that understands the difference of right and wrong with this kind of example.

I don't care about the size of Donald Trump's hands --- or any other body part, for that matter. But to bring this up during a presidential debate when you know your kids are watching? Despicable.

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

GLENN: Let me start with this. What was your earliest memory of a political function or speech or television experience with your family?

I remember my earliest memory with my family was sitting with my father, watching Nixon defend himself. And then watching Nixon resign, and then Ford pardoning him. I think it all happened in about a year's worth of time. But it's all just kind of one memory with me. And I remember watching television, and I remember specifically what my parents were saying at the time.

Last night -- I have watched all of the debates with my kids. My 9-year-old and my 11-year-old and my 20-somethings, we had been watching all of the debates together. Last night -- my wife and I are here in Washington, DC, and my kids are not with us. They did not have to watch the debate. But thank God they didn't watch the debate last night.

How can you possibly teach your children how to behave, how to address people, how to talk. Who didn't sit there, if you were watching it with your children, in the first five minutes and have to have a conversation with your children or at least feel like you were watching HBO after 11:00 p.m.? What the hell is going on with us? How can we possibly as conservatives tolerate this anymore?

Our society is coarse enough. Our children are under attack. You cannot expect us to be able to raise a strong generation that understands the difference of right and wrong -- let me say this.

George Lange who is one of the best -- he is the Annie Leibowitz of our day. George Lange is the, what? Artist and residence at Facebook. Right? Right. And Instagram. One of the best photographers in the country. He's a communist. He's a good friend of mine. But he's damn near a communist. He came in this morning because there's about a two-hour line outside in the snow here at CPAC because Secret Service is here. So he was taking pictures and waiting out in that line to get in.

And he said, "You know what, the people -- young people, the youth that are here, it's amazing how many people that are young are here and how they're dressed." He said, "Everybody is really dressed up, and it's really nice." Quote, "to see somebody have respect for one another in just the way they're dressed. It's nice to have people who have respect for themselves, for each other, for the process."

Last night, in the first two minutes -- I'm going to tell you, there are two things that you need to know. And these are the only two things you need to know about the debate last night. And these two things don't make the decision easy for you, you're asleep at the switch. You have no idea where we are. The first one is culture. And it's the least scary of the two. The first one is culture.

Within the first five minutes, had I been sitting there trying to teach my children about the Constitution and the process and Donald Trump goes into his small hands, I don't know what I would have said to my kids. Listen, here's the quote. 541, please.

PAT: Okay.

DONALD: I also happen to call him a lightweight, okay. And I have said that. So I would like to take that back. He's really not that much of a lightweight.

And as far as -- and I have to say this. I have to say this. He hit my hands. Nobody has ever hit my hands. I've never heard of this one.

Look at those hands. Are they small hands?

(applause)

And here he referred to my hands, if they're small, something else must be small. I guarantee you there's no problem. I guarantee you.

(applauding)(laughter)

PAT: I'm sorry. I think he's lying about that, just like he's lying about everything else.

GLENN: You know what, I could go into -- did you see the latest research now on the psyche of Adolf Hitler? Because Adolf Hitler also had small hands. I'm not kidding you. Was phobic about his hands. And phobic -- never -- I'm telling you, this is absolutely true. Look it up. Look it up. Was phobic about his hands.

PAT: No, I believe you.

GLENN: And also was -- was always uncomfortable about his sexuality and everything else and never wanted to be seen without his clothes on.

There's new research out that they've found one of his doctor's reports from one of his physicals, he actually was deformed downstairs. Was so small, it was inside of him. Some sort of a deformity.

JEFFY: Yes. Micro.

GLENN: And that's why he was so phobic -- yeah.

PAT: Yeah, we were talking about this the other day on Pat & Stu. But I can't remember what they call it.

STU: Pardon the color here, but it was a micro penis, is what they called it.

PAT: That's what they call it.

GLENN: It's a legitimate deal. It's not like a fourth grade slam. It's a legitimate deal. But he was phobic about his hands in the same way. So I'm not saying that he's -- and I don't care. I don't care. But to bring this up --

PAT: During a debate.

GLENN: -- during a debate when you know your kids are watching -- it was bad enough for Rubio to bring it up --

PAT: Oh, he doesn't care about that.

GLENN: But Rubio at least gave us an out. You know what they say about small hands, yeah, you can't trust them. You can't trust them.

PAT: Yeah. Right.

GLENN: At least he gave me as a parent an out. This guy didn't give me an out at all as a parent.

For the first time in the history of "The Glenn Beck Program," former President Donald Trump joined Glenn to give his take on America's direction under President Joe Biden compared to his own administration. He explained why Biden's horrific Afghanistan withdrawal was "not even a little bit" like his plan, and why he thinks it was "the most embarrassing event in the history of our country."

Plus, the former president gave his opinion on China's potential takeover of Bagram Air Base, the Pakistani Prime Minister, and Gen. Mark A. Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Glenn asked President Trump how similar the Biden administration's withdrawal from Afghanistan was to his administration's plan.

"Not even a little bit," Trump answered. "We had a great plan, but it was a very tenuous plan. It was based on many conditions. For instance, you can't kill American soldiers. ... You have to understand, I did want to get out. But I wanted to get out with dignity, and I wanted to take our equipment out. And I didn't want soldiers killed. ... What [Biden] did was just indefensible. He took the military out first and he left all the people. And then we became beggars to get the people out. I had a plan to get them out very quickly. But first, the Americans would go out."

Trump told Glenn that his plan included maintaining Bagram Air Base and explained why he would not have left "a single nail" behind in Afghanistan for the Taliban to seize.

"We were going to keep Bagram open," he explained. "We were never going to close that because, frankly, Bagram is more about China than it is about Afghanistan. It was practically on the other border of China. And now we've lost that. And you know who is taking it over? China is taking it over. We spend $10 billion to build that base. It's got the longest, most powerful runways in the world. And China has now got its representatives there and it looks like they'll take it over. Glenn, it's not believable what's happened. You know, they have Apache helicopters. These are really expensive weapons, and they have 28 of them. And they're brand-new. The latest model."

Glenn mentioned recent reports that Gen. Milley, America's top military officer, made "secret phone calls" to his counterpart in China while President Trump was in office.

"I learned early on that he was a dope," Trump said of Gen. Milley. "He made a statement to me — and I guarantee that's what happened to Biden — because I said, 'We're getting out of Afghanistan. We have to do it.' And I said, 'I want every nail. I want every screw. I want every bolt. I want every plane. I want every tank. I want it all out, down to the nails, screws, bolts ... I want every single thing. And he said, 'Sir, it's cheaper to leave it than it is to bring it.'

"The airplane might have cost $40 million, $50 million ... millions and millions of dollars. So, you think it's cheaper to leave it than to have 200 pilots fly over and fly all the equipment out? ... I said, you've got to be nuts. I mean, give me a tank of gas and a pilot and I just picked up a $40 million-dollar airplane. It was amazing. So, I learned early that this guy is a dope. But what he did, is he hurt our country ... and he shouldn't have been allowed to do it. And bad things should happen to him."

In a shocking but underreported conversation ahead of the G7 Speakers' meeting in London last week, Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi admitted that the administration knows China is committing "genocide" against the Uyghurs in the Xinjiang region, but thinks working with the regime on climate change is more important.

On the radio program, an outraged Glenn Beck dissected Pelosi's speech and broke down how — along with the Biden administration's abandonment of Americans in Afghanistan, and the Democrat decision to follow measures of medical "equity" — the far left is revealing how little they really care about human life.

Glenn played a video clip of Pelosi making the following statement:

We've always felt connected to China, but with their military aggression in the South China Sea, with their continuation of genocide with the Uyghurs in Xinjiang province there, with their violation of the cultural, linguistic, religious priority of Tibet, with their suppression of democracy in Hong Kong and other parts of China, as well – they're just getting worse in terms of suppression, and freedom of speech. So, human rights, security, economically [sic].

Having said all of that ... we have to work together on climate. Climate is an overriding issue and China is the leading emitter in the world, the U.S. too and developed world too, but we must work together.

"We have Nancy Pelosi admitting the United States of America knows that they're not only committing [genocide], they're continuing to commit it. Which means, we've known for a while," Glenn noted. "And what does she say? She goes on to say, yes, they're committing genocide against the Uyghurs, but having said that, I'm quoting, 'the overriding issue,' is working together on climate change.

"Would we have worked with Hitler on climate change? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the bomb? Would we have worked with Hitler on developing the Autobahn? Would we have worked with Hitler on his socialized medicine? Would we have worked with Hitler on any of his national, socialist ideas?" he asked.

"The answer is no. No. When you're committing genocide, no! She said 'we have to work together on climate,' because climate is the 'overriding issue.' The overriding issue? There is no way to describe this mindset. That, yes, they are killing an entire group of people because of their ethnicity or religion. They are systematically rounding them up, using them for slave labor, and killing them, using their organs and selling them on the open market. They are nothing more than cattle. For us to recognize it and do nothing about it is bad enough. But to say, 'we recognize it, but we have bigger things to talk to them about,' is a horror show."

Glenn went on to urge Americans to "stand up together in love, peace, and harmony," or risk watching our nation become the worst plague on human life yet.

The fall of Lehman Brothers in 2008 marked the largest bankruptcy filing in U.S. history and economic collapse was felt throughout the world. But now China's own version of Lehman Brothers, Evergrande, is teetering closer and closer to that edge, too. On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck gave the latest update and predicted how it will affect Asian markets and what it could mean for America's economy.

Glenn explained why he believes a major collapse that is happening now in China will have a cascading effect into a "controlled collapse," a managed decline that will dramatically change America's economy and the way we all live.

"You will not recognize your lifestyle. Hear me," Glenn warned. "And that's not a right-left thing. That's a right-wrong thing. We're on the wrong track. I'm telling you now, there's new information and you are not going to recognize the American lifestyle. ... It could happen tomorrow. It could happen in five years from now, but it will happen. We are headed for a very different country. One where you don't have the rights that you have. And you certainly don't have the economic privileges that Americans are used to."

"The same thing that happened in 2008 is now happening in China," Glenn continued. "This time, it's going to take everything down. When it collapses, it will take everything down."

Justin Haskins, editorial director of the Heartland Institute, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to expose a shocking conversation between two Great Reset proponents — Klaus Schwab, chairman of the World Economic Forum, and Christine Lagarde, president of the European Central Bank (Europe's equivalent to the Fed).

The way Schwab and Lagarde discuss the role central banks should play in establishing societal norms, determining your way of life, and defending against potential crisis is proof that the Great Reset is upon us, Justin explained. And the scariest part is that they're not even trying to hide it. The entire, unbelievable conversation has been published on the WEF website, which you can read here.

Glenn read an excerpt from the conversation:

Christine Lagarde: At the ECB, we have now wrapped up and concluded our strategy review, which was the first one in 17 years. And I was blessed to have an entire Governing Council unanimously agree that the fight against climate change should be one of the considerations that we take when we determine monetary policy. So at least the European Central Bank is of the view that climate change is an important component in order to decide on monetary policy. ...

Can we arrive at that trade-off between fighting climate change, preserving biodiversity and yet securing enough growth to respond to legitimate demands of the population? And my first answer, Klaus, to be firm, is that to have a way of life, we need life. And in the medium term, we do have major threats on the horizon that could cause the death of hundreds of thousands of people. So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. ...

So we have to think life, first. We have to think way of life, second. How can we come together to make sure that we secure the first priority, which is life, and also protect the way of life that people have? And make sure that the cost of it is not so high for some people, that they just cannot tolerate it. I think that the trade-off that we reach will probably require some redistribution, because it is clear that the most exposed people, the less privileged people are those that are going to need some help.

"Do you understand, America, what that means?" Glenn exclaimed. "You have elites, that you never elected, that are having these meetings ... deciding what is a legitimate need for you. And telling you that your needs are going to go away in your lifetime. You may not see a time where you get wants again. Just your needs are going to be addressed. Am I reading this wrong?"

"This is absolutely what is being said here," Justin agreed. "She's very clear that we need to make sure that way of life is second to life. We have to save all these people, hundreds of thousands of people are going to die from this supposedly existential threat of climate change. And their wants, and their desires, and their quality of living, all of that has to come second."

"This is a central bank saying this. This is not an elected official, who is accountable directly to the people. This is a central bank saying, we're going to print money. We're going to use monetary policy, to impose these ideas, to rework society in order to accomplish our goals," Justin added, addressing Lagarde's call for "some redistribution."

Will Great Reset elites — not elected by the U.S. — soon be dictating to the rest of the world? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Justin break it down:
