Trump 'News Conference' a Spectacle Full of Lies

The crazy train was on full display during Trump's post-election "news conference" thingy-ma-jig. Has a presidential candidate ever held such a spectacle, parading his alleged business products before supporters, the media and the American people? What was that?

Anyone who's ever been to elementary school should recognize Trump's behavior for what it is: A very insecure man trying to prop up his success in response to criticism. Rather than letting the success of his various companies speak for itself, Trump brought out failed product after failed product like an insecure fifth grader.

"I watched all of it. I couldn't believe . . . the incredible lies that he told last night," Glenn said Wednesday on The Glenn Beck Program. "But he revealed something: Don't mess with my businesses."

In response to Mitt Romney's comments about Trump's failed business ventures, the self-proclaimed billionaire spent an excessive amount of energy planning his rebuttal during what should have been a short news conference about election results.

Trump brought out Trump Steaks, Trump Water, Trump Magazine and Trump Vodka --- all failed products no longer available for purchase.

"It's really crazy," Glenn said. "You're going to be president of the United States and you're lying about your fake meat products?"

Tonight on TheBlaze TV, Glenn will air "Clock of Lies," counting down the lies told at Trump's event last night, with the evidence to prove it. Clock of Lies will air at 5:00 PM ET.

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

GLENN: Did you see the crazy town train that Donald Trump was on last night?

STU: For an hour?

PAT: Oh, yeah.

GLENN: It was crazy. Did you actually watch it?

STU: Parts of it. Not all of it.

GLENN: Okay. I watched all of it. I couldn't believe -- we're doing a show on just the Clock of Lies tonight. We're just looking at that hour, and we're just counting the lies and showing you the evidence that it is a lie. The incredible lies that he told last night. But he revealed something: Don't mess with my businesses. He brought out Trump steaks and Trump water and a Trump magazine, all this stuff --

PAT: That all failed.

STU: Not real.

GLENN: No, but here's what he said. Trump water. He cut these lines really, really close. Trump water. I still have Trump water. You know, I use it for all my hotels. No, that's not the same as Trump water.

PAT: No.

GLENN: You had Trump ice, and it was in stores.

PAT: Yes.

GLENN: There's a difference between relabeling water and putting it in your hotels.

PAT: That is really pathetic.

GLENN: Oh, yeah. And then when he said the magazine -- my magazine is still out. In fact, I just read it. My hotel still has the magazine. It's called Luxurious Destination or something. No, that wasn't Trump magazine. He's lying.

STU: He's lying. Trump steaks is the worst one though. It went out of business a long time ago. It's a meat company. The meat doesn't hang around for eight years. It would go bad, right? So he comes out and he says, "Here are Trump steaks. Look, they're in business." And a couple of reporters went up and took pictures. They didn't even bother to fully cut off the labels of the other brand the steaks were, which was a place called Bush Brothers in West Palm Beach. You could still the --

GLENN: You've got to be kidding.

PAT: Good golly.

STU: That they just took another steak and put it on a table and didn't even fully cut off the other label. They just don't care.

(laughter)

PAT: That's unbelievable.

STU: And this morning, still with that happening, and it being reported in multiple sources, multiple people saw it, this morning, still people are on, "And Donald Trump had Trump steaks" Wow, he had Trump steaks. I'd like to try one of those Trump steaks.

They don't exist. There are no Trump steaks. He has a restaurant at his hotel in which he's named one of his products Trump steaks. But Trump steaks was a company. He trotted out somebody else's steaks. Lied to his followers. Lied to all of the Trump bots. They still praise him for it.

PAT: And the Trump University thing, you're going to bring that back. You don't know that you're going to bring that back.

GLENN: The judge has said this is Bernie Madoff.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: I mean, I watched this last night with my family. We were watching him. And we were just sitting there saying, "What the hell?" America is doomed. If we are this stupid, we're -- it's suicide.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: We are voting for our own destruction. And this is why, you know, Marco Rubio has the little Marco thing. He's been offended, I'm sure. He's put everything into this campaign. But I think beyond being offend because I don't think Marco Rubio is that guy. I think Marco Rubio is a decent guy. I think he's got the wrong advisers. He's got the brokered convention people whispering in his ear. We don't want a brokered convention. That is a really bad idea. It's a really bad idea. And if they all stay in, that's exactly where we're headed. Then you have no choice. Then you have absolutely no choice.

PAT: And it's not going to be him. If you get to a brokered convention, it's not going to be any of these guys. They're probably going to find an alternative.

GLENN: I think it's going to be Kasich. Think of this. Think of this. Out of all the people we had last time, who did we get?

PAT: Romney.

GLENN: Out of all the people we had in '08, who did we get?

PAT: McCain.

GLENN: Out of all the people we've had this time, who do you think we're going to get? Kasich.

STU: The worst guy.

GLENN: These guys are going to orchestrate anything. But anybody who challenges their power. And what kills me, Trump is not a challenge to their power. All you have to do is play ball with him. You think he's really going to change things and go for a smaller government. Have you ever heard him talk about smaller government?

PAT: No.

JEFFY: No.

GLENN: Never. He's not going to go for a smaller government. He will increase the government, guarantee. He will increase the size of government.

JEFFY: It will benefit him.

STU: Absolutely no question about it.

GLENN: Yes. No question.

STU: Never has he shown that to be a priority in any way, which is the problem we have with him. Yeah, he says annoying things and he lies all the time. Those are all serious problems I have with Donald Trump. But the one that started the whole ball rolling down the hill is the fact that he's not a freaking conservative and doesn't care about smaller government or the Constitution. Those things are the biggest issues that immediately qualifies you from a Republican primary. Add on all this other stuff where he's going to lose the general election and he is, you know -- he says he has the best words. And he lies about his fake meat products.

(laughter)

STU: I mean, that's all --

GLENN: It's really crazy.

STU: That's all just icing on the cake.

GLENN: It's really crazy. You're going to be president of the United States and you're lying about your fake meat products. It's crazy.

STU: So weird.

GLENN: Just weird. Just weird.

(OUT AT 8:28AM)

GLENN: This is unbelievable. Just looking at the lies -- we're getting ready for the TV show tonight because there was an hour of unbelievable lies that are all verifiable. For instance, in almost all the polls, I beat Hillary Clinton. No, sir.

PAT: No.

GLENN: In almost every poll, you lose to Hillary Clinton. Everybody else beats Hillary Clinton.

But last night, he talked about Trump magazine. And he said, "You know, Romney said I have a failing Trump magazine. I still have a magazine. I thought I read one just two days ago." And he holds it up. And it's called the Jewel of Palm Beach. That's not Trump magazine. Trump magazine folded in 2009. So what is the Jewel of Palm Beach? This is a -- basically a glorified -- a glorified brochure of Mar-a-Lago Club and Trump International Golf Club in the Palm Beaches. And its' not a magazine. It's a brochure. It looks like a magazine. But it's basically a brochure. It's published once a year.

STU: And not for sale. It's just --

GLENN: It's just in your room. It's when you go -- Hilton has those little Hilton San Antonio, you know, magazines. That's what that is.

STU: More lies just constant lies.

GLENN: Just more constant lies. And people still say, "He tells it like it is."

STU: No, he does not.

GLENN: No, he doesn't. Never. Never tells it like it is. What are you teaching this guy? Back in a minute.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.

Glenn Beck: Why MLK's pledge of NONVIOLENCE is the key to saving America

Listen to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s pledge of nonviolence and really let it sink in: "Remember always that the nonviolent movement seeks justice and reconciliation — not victory."

On the radio program, Glenn Beck shared King's "ten commandments" of nonviolence and the meaning behind the powerful words you may never have noticed before.

"People will say nonviolent resistance is a method of cowards. It is not. It takes more courage to stand there when people are threatening you," Glenn said. "You're not necessarily the one who is going to win. You may lose. But you are standing up with courage for the ideas that you espouse. And the minute you engage in the kind of activity that the other side is engaging in, you discredit the movement. You discredit everything we believe in."

Take MLK's words to heart, America. We must stand with courage, nonviolently, with love for all, and strive for peace and rule of law, not "winning."

Conservatives are between a rock and a hard place with Section 230 and Big Tech censorship. We don't want more government regulation, but have we moved beyond the ability of Section 230 reforms to rein in Big Tech's rising power?

Rachel Bovard, Conservative Partnership Institute's senior director of policy, joined the Glenn Beck radio program to give her thoughts and propose a possibly bipartisan alternative: enforcing our existing antitrust laws.

Dan Bongino, host of The Dan Bongino Show, is an investor in Parler — the social media platform that actually believes in free speech. Parler was attacked by Big Tech — namely Amazon, Apple, and Google — earlier this week, but Bongino says the company isn't giving up without a fight. In fact, he says, he's willing to go bankrupt over this one.

Dan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he calls a "smear" campaign behind the scenes, and how he believes we can move forward from Big Tech's control.

"You have no idea how bad this was behind the scenes," Dan told Glenn. "I know you're probably thinking ... well, how much worse can the attack on Parler have gotten than three trillion-dollar companies — Amazon, Apple, and Google — all seemingly coordinated to remove your business from the face of the Earth? Well, behind the scenes, it's even worse. I mean, there are smear campaigns, pressure campaigns ... lawyers, bankers, everyone, to get this company ... wiped from the face of the earth. It's incredible."

Dan emphasized that he would not give up without a fight, because what's he's really fighting for is the right to free speech for all Americans, regardless of their political opinions, without fear of being banned, blacklisted, or losing jobs and businesses.

"I will go bankrupt. I will go absolutely destitute before I let this go," he said. "I have had some very scary moments in my life and they put horse blinders on me. I know what matters now. It's not money. It's not houses. It's none of that crap. It's this: the ability to exist in a free country, where you can express your ideas freely."
