Millennials learned in the'90s that character matters, and it's something that is deeply important to them.
"They know that's all that matters. They don't see that in Donald Trump. They don't see that in Hillary Clinton. They don't see that in the RNC. They don't see that in the DNC. They now don't see that in many of our churches either. You have to be the beacon of character. That's the hope. The next generation already is there, and they get it," Glenn said Friday on his radio program.

GLENN: Ah, gee.
JEFFY: That's my favorite part.
STU: You know what your problem is? Let me explain what your problem is.
STU: Because this is your problem. You own this.
The issue here is that you are holding on to hope for the future of the country. You let that go, all of this feels great. It's easy. It's funny. You laugh at it. It's not a big deal.
You keep weirdly holding on to this idea that there's some future for --
GLENN: And here's -- and here's why. I know you're either strangely telling the truth and it's -- it is your way to happiness. Or you're mocking this point. But let me show you where the hope comes from. The millennials.
STU: Oh, great. Oh, yeah.
GLENN: No, listen to me. Listen to me. Why is Bernie Sanders popular?
STU: He's hot.
GLENN: Yeah. He's authentic.
GLENN: Now, everybody says -- everybody says, "It's authenticity." We now know the secret recipe. It is not authenticity. Because Donald Trump is authentic. He is authentic.
JEFFY: Right. That's what drew the original crowds.
STU: That's what people think.
GLENN: We should have known better. We should have known better.
The -- authenticity is the same reason Bernie Sanders -- he's authentic. That's who he is. Okay? And we're saying, "That's what people want. They want somebody who just lets it all out." Well, yes, that's part of it. That's part of it. But character is more important. Authenticity will get you a spike. It will draw a crowd. "You can't believe this guy. You don't even know what he will say." It will draw that crowd, but it will not keep the crowd.
Authenticity with an ethical backbone, where the guy is saying, "I don't care what you do to me -- Bernie Sanders, up until the very end, "Yeah, I'm a socialist." He was the only one brave enough to say it. "I'm a socialist."
That's what the millennials like. They have -- they learned most likely from watching television -- whether their parents taught it or not -- they learned in the '90s, character matters. They were on our side at the time. Character matters.
And there is such a lack of character now. They know that's all that matters. They don't see that in Donald Trump. They don't see that in Hillary Clinton. They don't see that in the RNC. They don't see that in the DNC. They now don't see that in many of our churches either. You have to be the beacon of character. That's the hope. The next generation already is there, and they get it.
