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.

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."

Joe Biden's administration is getting ready for something historic, but we're all being distracted. And now that Biden has hired at least 14 former or current executives from Big Tech — experts at colluding to censor unflattering news about Biden — Americans must be laser-focused on what's coming.

On January 20, the most corrupt president in American history will be inaugurated, and it looks like some of his cabinet choices were picked specifically so everything just – poof – goes away. The administration nominees appear to be all about preserving corruption, crony capitalism, and executing a Great Reset. Those same people also have one more thing in common: Ukraine.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn exposes their radical agenda in their own words and gives U.S. senators the questions they must ask before confirming corrupt nominees to some of the highest offices in the country.
