Donald Trump's Best Moment Made Anderson Cooper Chastise the Audience

There's one thing you can say about Donald Trump: He'll go there. Anything previously off limits in debates due to political deference, conversational politeness or even common decency is on the table for Trump. One of his best moments from the presidential town hall was when he threatened Hillary Trump with jail.

While many Monday morning pundits found it in poor taste, Trump's supporters likely loved it.

Read below or listen to the full segment for answers to these tasteful questions:

• What other punches did Donald Trump land in the debate?

• Was Trump's performance better or worse than the last debate?

• What did Donald Trump say that he told himself he wouldn't?

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

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

PAT: So is it just us, or did Trump actually win the debate last night? Or maybe it's just me. You thought so too, right, Jeffy?

JEFFY: Yes, I did. I felt that he won -- this debate, he won.

PAT: Stu, you? I mean, if you're grading on a Trump curve, which you have to, did he win the debate?

STU: Yes. I think he did -- I mean I guess. I don't know.

PAT: According to CNN, he lost by 23 points.

JEFFY: No way.

STU: And the other poll from YouGov also said he lost, although not as badly. He lost by five. The attitude going in, was this tape, which we'll play here in a second, may have destroyed his candidacy. Everyone is bailing out. What's he going to say about this tape? And while I don't think he was particularly good about the tape, I feel like after that moment, he got back into his typical Trump sort of vibe and handled it generally well --

JEFFY: Right.

STU: Actually landed a couple of punches, which I didn't think he really did in the first debate.

PAT: Uh-huh.

STU: Especially outside of that first half-hour. It was the reverse performance of debate one, which I thought he was stronger in the first half-hour and worse on the back half. Here I thought he was worse on the first half, and then after that first hour, got past, I thought he was all right.

PAT: I thought this might have been his finest moment.

HILLARY: It is -- it's just awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country.

JEFFY: Yes.

DONALD: Because you'd be in jail.

(laughter)

STU: That is --

JEFFY: He had to remind the audience: No applause from the audience.

PAT: Yeah, and they had to -- Anderson had to chastise them after that.

STU: Yes. Intriguing dynamic though. Right?

PAT: Yeah. Yeah. Nobody else would say that. There's no other candidate I don't think ever that I can think of --

JEFFY: No way. No way.

PAT: Certainly not from the Republican Party, who would have said that to Hillary at that point.

STU: No. Certainly -- I don't think -- you're more the historian, Pat, than I am. But has there ever been an instance in which candidate A said, if I'm elected, I'll put you in jail? I don't think that's ever been a thing, at least in America, that I can remember. It's possible it's happened before.

JEFFY: It may have happened with a few dictator elections.

STU: It's a different vibe, right?

PAT: It is.

STU: Certainly different vibe.

And I think that sort of moment is effective for him. Because, you know, he's good -- that's what he does. Right?

JEFFY: Yes. That's what I mean --

PAT: It was pretty powerful when he said, "I wasn't going to say this, but if I'm elected, I'm going to put a special prosecutor on your case."

JEFFY: Right.

PAT: "And I'm going to have him find out what you've done."

And, I mean, that's -- that was pretty -- that was pretty powerful. He had a few good moments there.

JEFFY: Yeah, he did.

PAT: That certainly his supporters are going to respond to. No doubt about that. Now, did he win independents?

STU: Right. I mean, his job is not to just hold on to the people he has because he's got to get five points.

PAT: He's got to get more. Got to get more.

STU: He needs to get more. And did he get those people, is the question.

In just the past few days, the Senate passed an unprecedented $740 billion spending bill amid an inflation crisis, we found out that the IRS purchased nearly $700,000 worth of guns and ammo ahead of plans to hire 87,000 new "enforcement" agents, and on Monday the FBI raided the home of a former U.S. president. It's pretty safe to say that there's a whole lot going on in this country that we've never seen before, and conservatives had "better wake up," said Glenn Beck on "The Glenn Beck Program."

"This is the beginning of an entirely new kind of America. And when it is all implemented, look out! The only other thing that I think [Democrats] could do to really polish us off is [use] emergency orders. If [President Joe Biden] goes for emergency orders and declares a national emergency over the weather, we're going to be cooked," Glenn said.

Glenn went on to explain why he believes a new "season" is on the horizon for our nation, but it’s not all bad news. He said he's hopeful for a new class of politicians to enter Washington, D.C., and, while no politician is perfect, a few such as Florida Governor Ron DeSantis can still surprise us.

DeSantis always seems to be ahead of the curve on hot-button issues, and he tackles them the legal way without abusing his power. Just look at how much the media is trying to paint him as evil. That’s a telltale sign that "he’s on the right track, at the right speed. And he's taking all of it on," Glenn said.

Here are 3 ways the 'Inflation Reduction Act' WILL impact you (Hint: NOT by reducing inflation)

The Senate has passed President Joe Biden's $740 billion "Inflation Reduction Act" over the weekend, but the only way this deceptively-named bill will reduce inflation is by crushing your buying power. The massive spending bill includes the largest climate spending package ever passed and will allocate a whopping $80 billion to make the IRS bigger than the Pentagon, State Department, FBI, and Border Patrol combined. And just wait until you see how the bill will affect our farmers.

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck broke down three rather "terrifying" components of the 755-page bill and how they will impact you.

CNN’s Brian Stelter had a shocking moment of clarity Sunday when he acknowledged what everyone but the liberal media has known since before the 2020 presidential election: President Joe Biden's son Hunter has been up to some seriously dubious dealings overseas, and his father was almost certainly involved despite his repeated claims to the contrary.

On "Reliable Sources" Sunday, Stelter spoke with first lady Jill Biden's former press secretary, Michael LaRosa, about whether Biden is likely to seek a second term in 2024.

“I hope he runs, and I know he’s going to run. I think he's planning to run ... I don't see why he wouldn't run,” LaRosa stammered.

"What about his son? What about Hunter?" Stelter cut in. “Hunter [is] under federal investigation, charges could be coming at any time. This is not just a right-wing media story. This is a real problem for the Bidens."

Unluckily for Stelter, "The Hill's" Joe Concha can remember all the way back to the fall of 2020:


On a recent episode of Glenn TV, Glenn Beck discussed the most recent findings in the Hunter Biden laptop scandal. Don't get distracted by the seemingly endless stream of scandalous photos and videos, Glenn warns, it's what's coming out about Hunter's overseas business dealings that should be all over the media, because Joe Biden is involved too.
