Counting Down Trump's Litany of Lies

Donald Trump gave quite the press conference following election results Tuesday night.

Instead of focusing on the election, Trump spent an exorbitant amount of time and energy defending a bunch of past business ventures and products with his name on them. The problem? They don’t exist. You won’t find any Trump Steaks, Trump Water, Trump Magazine or Trump Vodka — they’re all failed products, no longer available for purchase.

“It’s really crazy,” Glenn said on radio Wednesday. “You’re going to be president of the United States and you’re lying about your fake meat products?”

It might seem impossible to keep up with Trump’s litany of lies, but Glenn managed to identify at least ten from Tuesday’s press conference alone. He laid them out on his TV show Wednesday night.

Lie #1: Trump Beats Hillary in the Polls

Donald: “If I win and if I get to go against Hillary, polls are showing that I beat her.”

Wrong. Trump is the only candidate actually losing in polls against Hillary. Cruz beats her. Rubio beats her. Even Kasich destroys Hillary. There are only two polls out of dozens we found that show Trump ahead.

Lies #2 and #3: Mitt Romney Said Trump Water in His Speech / Trump Water Exists

Donald: “And Mitt got up, and he really shouldn’t have done it . . . and he talked about the water company, well there’s the water company, and we sell water and we have water and it’s a very successful, you know, it’s a private little water company and I supply the water for all my places . . . and it’s good, but it’s very good.”

First of all, Romney never mentioned a Trump water company in his speech. Secondly, Trump Water doesn’t exist. The bottles displayed at Trump’s press conference were produced by the Village Springs Corporation, which private labels water for clients. Having another water company place your label on their product is not the same thing as owning your own water company.

Lie #4: Trump Steaks Exists

Donald: “We have Trump Steaks.”

Trump Steaks once sold products at the Sharper Image, but they’ve been discontinued. Trump Steaks are not available to purchase because they don’t exist. The steaks displayed at Trump’s press conference had the Bush Brothers label on them. Trump didn’t even bother to have his staff remove the other company’s label.

Lie #5: Trump Magazine Exists

Donald: “We have Trump Magazine . . . He said Trump Magazine is out, and I said, ‘It is? I thought I read one two days ago.'”

Trump Magazine closed shop in 2009. Donald Trump pays another company to publish an annual edition every year that is placed in his hotels. It is not his business. He doesn’t own it. Additionally, the publication held up at Trump’s press conference — The Jewel of Palm Beach — is not a magazine, it’s a thick brochure like you’d find in a hotel room.

Lie #6: Trump Airlines Was Sold in a Great Deal

Donald: “The airline, by the way, I sold the airline, you know, he said ‘Trump Airline,’ well I sold the airline, and I actually made a great deal, complicated, and in really terrible times, the economy was horrible, and I made a phenomenal deal.”

Trump Airlines wasn’t sold in a “complicated way.” It was quite simple. The bank essentially “repossessed” the company because Trump defaulted on payments. He lost over a hundred million dollars.

Lie #7: Three People Love Trump University

Donald: “Three people were saying, ‘Oh, it was so terrible.’ The reason I didn’t settle, everyone of these people . . . we sent their letters out, their report cards, their report cards were all excellent, beautiful statements. ‘We love it.’ You can’t settle cases when the person suing you has given you letters, and in some cases tapes, saying how great it is.”

Trump recently took to his website to bully three people filing suit against Trump University, naming them each online. One of the three has left the lawsuit because she doesn’t want to be a part of the media circus — she’s afraid of Donald Trump. He tries to make the case that their positive reviews make them look like hypocrites or even liars, just out to make a buck. But here’s what he won’t tell you. Those “report cards” were filled out at the beginning of their classes, when Trump University was free. After the awesome “free” part, they had to pay $7,000 and then $35,000 to keep going. At that point, they realized Trump University was a total scam.

Trump also claims the university is “on hold” until the lawsuits are over, but the state of New York prefers the words “cease and desist.” They sent Trump University a cease and desist letter when they found out he was using the term “university” without a license — which is illegal. The multiple state investigations and class action lawsuits should help keep Trump University “on hold.”

Lie #8: Trump Doesn’t Settle Lawsuits

Donald: “I don’t settle lawsuits — very rare — because once you settle lawsuits everybody sues you.”

This one took some serious research to disprove. Staff members spent several minutes on Google to learn that Trump settled out of court with a New Hampshire man that sued him over age discrimination against older contestants who wanted to be on The Apprentice. Frivolous, to be sure, but Trump did settle out of court. American Dream Festival also filed a lawsuit for breach of contract and sexual harassment regarding a beauty contest that was to be held in one of his hotels. Rather than fight it, Trump settled out of court.

Lie #9: Trump Vodka Exists

Donald: “[Romney] mentioned Trump Vodka.”

Instead of talking about vodka, Trump talked about the water and the wine that Mitt Romney never mentioned. Trump Vodka was started in 2008 and died less than two years later — it just wasn’t selling. But there is still one client that has Trump Vodka available to its customers — and that’s any Trump hotel. There were boxes and boxes of Trump Vodka when the company went under, so he sold it to himself.

Lie #10: Trump’s Great Company Has No Debt

Donald: “I built a great, great company. I have very low debt. I have assets like this (hands spread wide). This is owned 100 percent by me with no debt.”

He’s talking about Doral in Florida. Now we can’t verify most of these claims until he releases his tax returns (which will never happen because he’s in trouble), but we were able to check into one claim. He implied that Doral was among his debt-free properties. In truth, he actually has two very large mortgages on Doral. His filings with the FEC shows he owes $265 million in debt. We’ll only know for sure when and if he releases his taxes.

Then there were two “unofficial lies” Glenn highlighted.

(Unofficial) Lie #11: Never Have so Many Horrible Things Been Said of Trump in One Week

Donald: “I don’t think I’ve ever had so many horrible, horrible things said about me in one week.”

Since that’s subjective — only Donald Trump knows Donald Trump’s worst week — it doesn’t make the official count. However, arguably, there have been other weeks one might consider contenders:

• The week in 1990 when Vanity Fair destroyed him about an affair with a Penthouse Pet

• The week that he filed for bankruptcy in 1991

• The week that he filed for bankruptcy in 1992

• The week that he filed for bankruptcy in 2004

• The week that he filed for bankruptcy in 2009

But let’s not get nit picky here.

Finally, (Unofficial) Lie #12: Trump Is a Very Good Christian

Donald: "I'm a very good Christian."

“I’m going to try to cover this in the most loving way possible,” Glenn said. “Because I don’t think it’s a lie per se, I just don’t think he understands Christianity at all.”

Only Donald Trump knows what’s on his heart, so it’s not our place to judge. And there’s this other guy – God – that typically is the one that judges people.

What does stands out about Donald Trump’s comments, though, is when he says he’s going to be the best thing that’s ever happened to Christians. The whole point of Christianity is that no one is perfect – no one. Only Jesus is perfect, and he died on the cross for our sins. It’s called the Good News. That is the best thing that’s ever happened to Christians. And no person could ever top that.

First comes the "crisis," then comes the expansion. The federal government is seizing on the January 6 Capitol riot to take carte blanche to do whatever it wants and weaponize the event to further empower the new overlords of our country — the intelligence community.

On Glenn TV Wednesday, Glenn Beck reveals what's happening with the U.S. Capitol Police and argues they've morphed into a new arm of the intelligence apparatus, boosted by a massive increase in funding and surveillance equipment and new offices OUTSIDE the Capitol building. The Biden administration has also hidden basic details regarding January 6. Why did officials refuse to release the name of the officer who killed Ashli Babbitt? Where are the 14,000-plus hours of CCTV footage? As any intelligence organization knows, it's best to operate outside the realms of oversight.

Glenn exposes the hidden hand of government that could be used to punish and destroy innocent Americans who are only guilty of holding the "wrong" political view.

The conditions in Afghanistan under the Taliban rule — for Americans, allies, Christians, women and more — continue to deteriorate, and the people there continue to plead that we will not forget them. On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck gave an emotional update on current evacuation efforts, including the tragic story of one girl — an American passport holder — who was not rescued in time.

"I have a pit in my stomach like I haven't had in a while. What is happening in Afghanistan is both miraculous and horrendous," Glenn began. "What's going on right now one of the most amazing things I've ever personally witnessed — the evacuation of Americans, those [Afghans] who helped us, Christians that are dying, women that are under incredible conditions. I see things that I can't show you. I see the pleadings from people who are in safe houses, 'Please, don't forget us.' I see what they're being sent by the Taliban.

"If I die today, my entire life will have been worth it for what you have helped get done, in just the last three weeks. You have saved well over 5,000 people," he continued.

Fighting back tears, Glenn added, "I ask that you pray for those in the Middle East, that are in the midst of doing work, that a Moses-style miracle will happen. ... There are several people that are in dire need of medical care. Friday, we told you — along with the congressman from Oklahoma [Rep. Markwayne Mullin] who had just returned — [about] a father and two daughters that were blue passport Americans, and a mother who had a permanent residence, a Green Card. The daughter was very ill. And they thought, that if we couldn't get her out of there, that she would lose her legs. I got a call on Saturday morning, that we were too late, that she didn't lose her legs. She lost her life, waiting. There are now two Americans, instead of three."

Glenn showered his audience with gratitude, repeating that "well over 5000" lives have already been saved because of their incredible generosity, but lamented that there are still thousands more people yet to be saved.

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."
