Corey Lewandowski, Donald Trump's campaign manager, was charged with misdemeanor battery over allegations he grabbed the arm of former Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields. Despite video showing Lewandowski grabbing Fields and a photo showing clear bruise marks on her arm, Trump has doubled down on supporting his campaign manager, attacking Fields rather than offering a simple apology.
"I don't want to make this about Donald Trump. I want to make this about us," Glenn said Wednesday on The Glenn Beck Program. "What does it say about a nation that will stand by any lie, any deception?"
Where are the real men in our society? Do they still exist? The answer is yes. One exemplary model is Ben Shapiro, former editor-at-large at Breitbart.com who resigned over the mishandling of Fields' situation.
"You can't say enough about Ben Shapiro's character through this," co-host Stu Burguiere said. "You can't say enough about it."
"Ben Shapiro's character all the way along, ever since I've known Ben Shapiro, his character is beyond repute," Glenn said.
Shapiro appeared on The Kelly File with Megyn Kelly Tuesday night, pulling no punches on how he feels about Donald Trump.
"Lying liars lie," Shapiro said. "And this is the Trump campaign, where lies are told and then lies are told to cover up the lies, and then finally new lies are told in order to cover up the lies that were told about the lies."
"There was a statement made, I think, by the Trump campaign recently that good guys finish last," Glenn said. "They don't finish last. Good guys win in the end. Do we believe that or not?"
Glenn shared two personal stories about treating women with respect — one about teaching his son to tip his hat and the other about opening the car door for his wife.
"If we don't believe that, we're creating a country that I don't want to be a part of," Glenn said. "We have to believe things before we can put them into action. We actually have to strive to be better."
