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.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.

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."
