Did Kaine's Debate Plan Include Being the Most Obnoxious Man on Earth?

A clear winner emerged during last night's presidential debate, and it had everything to do with style over substance.

"Pence blew him out of the water, just on presentation," Glenn said Wednesday on his radio program.

Co-host Pat Gray agreed.

"Just crushed him," he said.

Democratic vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine, who wore a red power tie, presumably to match Hillary's red power pantsuit, came off as pushy and rude.

"You know what? Their ties said it all, just like the last debate with the presidents," Glenn said.

Maybe Kaine should have worn a different color.

Read below or watch the clip for answers to these colorful questions:

• Was Kaine's plan to be most obnoxious man on planet earth?

• How many times did Kaine interrupt Pence?

• What's the one thing Pence did that Glenn found problematic?

• Did Pence score points for Donald Trump?

• Why is fact-checking different now than in the 1800s?

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors:

GLENN: Okay. Tim Kaine. Ooh. Wow. I don't know what his plan was, other than to be the most obnoxious man on planet earth.

PAT: Good plan. Good plan.

GLENN: Oh, my gosh.

JEFFY: He tried. He tried.

GLENN: Yeah, he interrupted 70 times.

PAT: Somebody counted? Seventy times!

GLENN: Seventy times in 90 minutes.

PAT: Oh, my --

JEFFY: It was really bad.

GLENN: It was so annoying because you couldn't understand anyone.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: And the moderator kept saying, "Senator, senator, stop."

PAT: Oh, at times it was just a cacophony of sound. Because she was trying to get control. Neither of them would let her. So it was all three of them at the same time yakking, and so you got nothing.

JEFFY: Right.

GLENN: He came off as a complete jerk. Both of them -- and, you know what, their ties said it all, just like the last debate with the presidents.

Their colors said it all. Tim Kaine was wearing a red tie. The red denotes power and strength, and I'm not a pushover.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Because the Trump campaign is viewed as bullies and not credible, he was wearing a blue tie. Same with Trump. And Clinton was wearing a red pantsuit. Okay?

So Kaine was trying to show, "I'm forceful, I'm not a pushover. I'm not -- stupid. Stupid. Because that's not who Mike Pence is. Mike is not a bully. He's not. And your candidate up at the top of the ticket is just as unlikable for half the country.

PAT: At least.

GLENN: They both needed to be reasonable.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: They both needed to be, "Don't worry, America. We're not babies. We're not little kids fighting it out." And that's exactly how Kaine looked. He looked like a school yard bully. And Pence rose above it.

STU: You know, some of the analysis afterwards was basically saying that Pence won the debate, but he won the debate for Pence.

JEFFY: Yes.

STU: He was not able to score points for Donald Trump.

GLENN: No.

STU: While Kaine just came out and while Kaine lost it for Kaine, he was able to get a lot of the points that Hillary's campaign would want out there.

GLENN: Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah.

JEFFY: That's true. I found myself looking -- watching Pence going, "Yes, I like you. Oh, that's right, you're there for Donald Trump."

STU: Yeah. He would be a much better presidential candidate.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: This would be a totally different conversation, a totally different election if Pence was the actual--

GLENN: I will tell you, the thing I had a problem with, with Pence, and I thought he did really well, and I thought he won. But I had a really hard time with Pence because, you know, the one thing he had going for him was, he's an honorable guy.

JEFFY: Yeah.

PAT: And he's trying to defend the indefensible.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: No, but he didn't try to defend it.

PAT: He just changed the subject. From the clips I heard --

GLENN: No, he claimed over and over again -- Jeffy --

JEFFY: Yeah.

GLENN: He claimed he never said those things. He never said those things.

JEFFY: Come on.

GLENN: Mike, stop it. Stop it. We're not living in the 1800s. We could go back to the -- we could go back to the clips on YouTube.

PAT: That's what everybody does though, they just lie.

GLENN: They just lie.

PAT: And it works for them.

GLENN: And both of them did it.

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."

Glenn Beck and The Nazarene Fund have been working tirelessly to evacuate Americans and our allies from Afghanistan, thanks to the U.S. government's failure to do so. But it's been far from easy. A recent Newsweek article, titled "Taliban Holds Up Glenn Beck Group's Planes," addressed some of the most recent challenges. The article claimed that six planes — filled with Americans and SIVs ready for takeoff — were "grounded by the Taliban amid negotiations with the U.S. State Department." So, what's actually going on? Why is the State Department meddling in the rescue? And what are the next steps to get these Americans home?
