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.

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."
