Donald Trump Gives the Worst Advice You Have Ever Heard

Even if just in a job interview, we’ve all been asked what the best piece of advice we’ve ever received is. With the circus that has been the GOP primary season, we’ve even heard the candidates asked this question either at a town hall or debate. Glenn and the guys talked about the wisdom that's been imparted to them over the years Friday on The Glenn Beck Program.

“I've had really great men teach me some unbelievable things, that you can't just care about one thing," Glenn said. When it comes to charity, you can't just be about one thing. You have to care about the entire human condition."

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

Glenn went deeper on the therapy couch and got a little personal.

“My dad gave me a great piece of advice," Glenn said. "'If you don't want to be like your father, then you better find a role model and learn everything you can. Because if you don't replace everything that I gave and taught you just through watching me, you're going to turn out exactly like me.'"

He went on to remind Pat of the best advice he'd received from him.

“Do you remember when I was at my absolute lowest?" Glenn said. "You looked at me and you put your arm around me and you said, ‘Glenn, the answers are eternal, and life isn't this hard.’”

Co-host Jeff Fisher lightened the mood a little as only he can do and shared his best piece of advice.

“Don't get caught. I forget which police officer told me.”

Many people have heard this next piece of advice in business. It’s advice Glenn personally gives to interns and anybody who works for him.

"Don't ever be the smartest person in the room. Surround yourself with the best people you possibly can,” Glenn said.

Circling back to the news of the day, the conversation shifted to some bad advice --- this coming from Republican frontrunner Donald Trump.

You become very successful --- the people that you will like best are the people that are less successful than you because when you go to a table, you can tell them all these wonderful stories, and they'll sit back and listen. Does that make sense to you? Okay. Always be around unsuccessful people because everybody will respect you. Do you understand that?

Glenn and co-host Pat Gray tried to hash out just what this advice actually means.

“Well, that's an egomaniac, right?” Pat asked.

Glenn quickly responded with a tragic interpretation.

“No," Glenn said. "It's a cry for help. It is a sad guy."

What? Glenn continued.

“His reason is so tragically sad: 'Because you sit down at a table, and they'll listen to your stories.'"

Digging deeper into the statement and observing the audience's reaction, Glenn actually found a genuine sincerity in what Trump is saying.

“The audience doesn't even laugh. They kind of laugh a little, but it's a nervous laughter. Like, 'I think he might be serious.' And he says, 'Does that make sense to you? Do you understand what I mean?' He's pouring his heart out here," Glenn said.

Now, the question is: Is that the advice you want coming from a man who wants to be in the Oval Office? Having already stated he’s going to surround himself with the best people, this piece of advice either proves Trump's arrogance or that he is lying.

POLL: What did YOU think about the 2nd GOP presidential debate?

Wednesday was a big night for the Republican presidential candidates during the second GOP debate... OR WAS IT?

Glenn wasn't impressed with the debate. In fact, he went as far as to say it was the worst Presidential debate BY FAR he had ever seen for THIS reason: NO ONE discussed the major issues that Americans are actually facing.

Inflation has doubled Americans' grocery bills. Gas is nearing a historic record of $100/barrel. We have DOUBLED our national deficit. Bidenomics and the globalists' green agenda pose an existential threat to core American industries while we continue to fund the Ukrainian people's pensions and small businesses. It is as if our government has forgotten the American people.

COVID is back! Or that is what we’re being told anyway...

A recent spike in COVID cases has triggered the left's alarm bells, and the following institutions have begun to reinstate COVID-era mandates. You might want to avoid them if you enjoy breathing freely...

There was a time when both the Left and the Right agreed that parents have the final say in raising their children... Not anymore.

In the People's Republic of California, the STATE, not parents, will determine whether children should undergo transgender treatments. The California state legislature just passed a law that will require judges in child custody cases to consider whether parents support a child’s gender transition. According to the law, the state now thinks total affirmation is an integral part of a child’s “health, safety, and welfare.”

We are inching closer to a dystopia where the state, not the parents, have ultimate rights over their children, a history that people from former Soviet nations would feign repeating.

The Biden admin has let in MORE illegal aliens than the populations of THESE 15 states

There are currently an estimated 16.8 MILLION illegal aliens residing in the United States as of June 2023, according to the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR). This number is already 1.3 million higher than FAIR's January 2022 estimate of 15.5 million and a 2.3 million increase from its end-of-2020 estimate. Even Democrats like New York City's Mayor Adams Mayor Adams are waking up to what Conservatives have been warning for years: we are in a border CRISIS.

However, this isn't the same border crisis that Republicans were warning about back in 2010. In the first two years of the Biden administration alone, the illegal alien population increased by 16 PERCENT nationwide, imposing a whopping net cost of $150.6 BILLION PER YEAR on American taxpayers. That is nearly DOUBLE the total amount that the Biden administration has sent to Ukraine.

This isn't the same border crisis that Republicans were warning about back in 2010.

These large numbers often make it difficult to conceptualize the sheer impact of illegal immigration on the United States. To put it in perspective, we have listed ALL 15 states and the District of Colombia that have smaller populations than the 2.3 MILLION illegal immigrants, who have entered the U.S. under the Biden administration. That is more than the entire populations of Wyoming, Vermont, and South Dakota COMBINED—and the American taxpayers have to pay the price.

Here are all 16 states/districts that have FEWER people than the illegal immigrants who have entered the U.S. under the Biden administration.

1. New Mexico

Population: 2,110,011

2. Idaho

Population: 1,973,752
