Glenn Makes Wild Prediction About Trump

Donald Trump has faced consistent pressure and scrutiny from Glenn, so his prediction Wednesday on The Glenn Beck Program came as a surprise.

"I'm going to make a prediction about Donald Trump," Glenn said. "I could say he's going to be the nominee of the Republican Party. But I think that's obviously a foregone conclusion. Here's my prediction, and I stand by it: Donald Trump is going to be the next president of the United States."

Glenn has said Hillary Clinton is such a flawed candidate that his shoe or a rock could beat her. But her flaws are not the only thing stopping her from reaching the Oval Office.

"The key to success here is star power. And somebody from the outside that is going to shake things up," Glenn said.

Glenn has been adamant that Clinton would wipe the floor with Trump, so what led him to change his mind?

"After looking at the exit polls last night, I believe the number --- and, Stu, you'll have to look this up --- I believe the number was 30 percent of Democrats that said they will cross over and vote for Donald Trump," Glenn said. "Ten percent, probably maybe, maybe 20 percent will just stay home, and they'll say, 'It doesn't matter.' But if you can get 30 percent..."

A high percentage of Democrats voting for Trump could make the difference.

"That shows how weak of a candidate [Hillary] is."

GLENN: Hello, America. I'm going to make a prediction about Donald Trump. I could say he's going to be the nominee of the Republican Party. But I think that's obviously a foregone conclusion. Here's my prediction, and I stand by it: Donald Trump is going to be the next president of the United States.

JEFFY: Oh.

GLENN: And I don't think there's any way around it. I believe Donald Trump will beat Hillary Clinton. And here's why: The -- Hillary Clinton is such a flawed candidate. I've said this for a long time. My shoe would beat Hillary Clinton, right? Anything -- a rock will beat Hillary Clinton. That's why I said, "This is our biggest chance, our biggest chance to beat Hillary Clinton." And my theory was, because nobody is going to cross over to vote for the Republicans, per se. But if the Republicans would unite and they would unite around constitutional principles, we could win and restore the nation.

But what's happening is Donald Trump is a divisive figure. And a lot of people, you know, disagree with me. They think we're the divisive ones. Fine. Whatever. Those people who are supporting Donald Trump are, most of them, who have been on the bandwagon before, are not constitutionalists, not people who actually believed in the principles of the Tea Party. Some of them were Tea Party goers, but they have been so badly beaten and disenfranchised by the G.O.P., by the -- by the entire government, by culture, that they just want somebody to stop the madness.

But that's not the key to the success here. The key to success here is star power. And somebody from the outside that is going to shake things up. And I believe -- after looking at the exit polls last night, I believe the number -- and, Stu, you'll have to look this up. I believe the number was 30 percent of Democrats that said they will cross over and vote for Donald Trump. Now, 40 percent of Republicans say they're not happy with Donald Trump.

Let's say 20 percent actually stick by that. Let's say 20 percent actually stick by that and say, for principles, I'm not going to do it. I'll find another party, or I just won't for that level on the ticket.

Ten percent, probably maybe -- maybe 20 percent will just stay home, and they'll say, "It doesn't matter." But if you can get 30 percent -- when was the last time you ever saw a poll that said 5 percent of Democrats would vote for a Republican? Certainly not 30 percent in an exit poll that say they would cross over. That shows how weak of a candidate she is.

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
