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.

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.
