Trump Is an Empty Vessel for Supporters to Project Their Hopes On

Wednesday on radio, Glenn invited supporters of Donald Trump to call the show so he could listen and gain understanding about why they're voting for Trump and what they think about his "softening" on immigration. While Glenn never bought into the so-called "dog whistle theory" pushed by the mainstream media on the Tea Party, he did learn something by analyzing the calls.

"I still don't buy into that currently with Donald Trump. I don't think he is speaking in dog whistle, but I do believe people are hearing a dog whistle," Glenn said.

He went on to explain.

"What this means is, he is an empty vessel," Glenn said. "Let's say George Bush is in office . . . running against an unnamed Democrat. Who wins? The unnamed Democrat always wins. Barack Obama is in against an unnamed Republican. The unnamed Republican always wins because the unnamed person is just an empty vessel that everybody puts what they think would be right into there."

Once the candidate is named, it's not the same. The empty vessel has a voice, a persona, opinions.

"I believe Donald Trump somehow or another has branded himself as so clearly one thing, and yet at the same time, a completely empty vessel," Glenn said.

He then played three different calls from yesterday to prove his point.

"The problem here is, three of his supporters are hearing three very different things," Glenn said.

"Common tongue language," Jeffy said.

"Common tongue language. Except none of the three supporters speak the same language. They're all hearing three different things," Glenn said.

One caller believed Trump was intentionally softening on immigration in order to get elected. Another found Trump's softening the very reason that he could vote for the businessman.

Some would say Trump's new rhetoric is a way to reach more voters and unite people --- even though it betrays his earlier campaign positions.

"If that's what he's doing, (a) I don't like to be manipulated myself and (b) that is the biggest progressive move I've ever seen. 'I know better than you do, so I'll pretend to be you. And then I will teach you how it should be done and enact the policy that I know is right.' That's the most amazing progressive move I've ever seen," Glenn said. "If that's what he's doing, how do you feel about being manipulated?"

Candace Owens, BLEXIT founder and author of the upcoming book, "Blackout," joined Glenn Beck on Friday's GlennTV for an exclusive interview. available only to BlazeTV subscribers.

Candace dropped a few truth-bombs about the progressive movement and what's happening to the Democratic Party. She said people are practically running away from the left due to their incessant push to dig up dirt on anybody who disagrees with their radical ideology. She explained how -- like China and its "social credit score" -- the left is shaping America into its own nightmarish episode of "Black Mirror."

"This game of making sure that everyone is politically correct is a societal atom bomb. There are no survivors. There's no one that is perfect," Candace said. "The idea that humanity can be perfect is Godless. If you accept that there is something greater than us, then you accept that we a flawed. To be human is to be flawed."

Philip Haney, a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) whistleblower during the Obama administration, was found dead near Plymouth, California, on Friday.

Authorities said 66-year-old Haney died from a single gunshot wound to his chest, which was determined to be "self-inflicted." Read more on this here.

Haney was a good friend to Glenn Beck and the program. On radio Monday, Glenn said it's almost impossible for him to believe that the man he knew so well could have taken his own life.

"He was one of the most honorable men I've ever met," Glenn said. "A guy who was willing to put himself in danger. A guy who knew what he was dealing with, knew that he could be killed, or that he would be disappeared, or that he could go to prison. And he was absolutely unafraid. And this is one reason why I know, why I so strongly feel that he didn't kill himself."
