Melania Trump Is Not Adolf Hitler's Wife

Inauguration day is less than three weeks away and Melania Trump is keeping a low profile. However, the long-time client of designers Dolce & Gabbana is being unfairly compared to Eva Braun after the fashion duo complimented a cocktail dress she wore on New Year's Eve.

"Does anybody on the left buy any Hugo Boss? Because only haters would buy Hugo Boss because Hugo Boss actually designed and produced the SS black uniforms for Adolf Hitler. At the time, they knew who he was, they knew what he was doing, and not only did they produce them, design them, they created them using Jewish slaves in labor camps," Glenn said.

Consistency has never been a hallmark of the left. Rather, double standards are the standard of the day.

"You don't take a Bayer Aspirin, do you? Because Bayer Aspirin, the sister company was IG Farben and IG Farben, of course, was the one that made Zyklon B, the gas chamber gas," Glenn said.

You can't have it both ways, liberals.

Enjoy this complimentary clip from The Glenn Beck Program:

 

 

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

GLENN: We're okay with that. You know, but apparently -- apparently, that's okay now to some students in Columbia and up in Boston. Other students are going down because it's time for a revolution.

Who are we becoming, and where do you stand? Will you add fuel to the revolutionary fire, or will you try to grab the fire hose? I'll play the amazing audio to you right now.

(music)

GLENN: Hello, America. Welcome to the Glenn Beck Program. I want to start with something that I mentioned last hour, and I want to make sure that we get to it. Because, again, it is one of these things -- one of these things that I just think we -- we need to point out to our friends on the left that this is not reasonable.

Inauguration day is less than three weeks away. Melania Trump has made a point of keeping a low profile. She is probably the lowest profile First Lady I've seen in a long time.

I mean, Bush was -- Laura Bush was pretty low profile. But, you know, she was -- she was the typical First Lady, where you didn't -- you didn't read anything really about her, except in Better Homes and Gardens or magazines like that. Here's Melania Trump that could be everywhere and is withdrawing. Doesn't want anything to do with it.

Listen to this: Keeping a low profile, but she is to be -- her choice of Dolce & Gabbana's dress for New Year's Eve in Palm Beach at Mar-a-Lago kicked off an online firestorm.

She was -- she's a long-time client of the Italian brand. She wore a black Dolce & Gabbana cocktail dress with bows on each shoulder.

Stefano Gabbana thanked her via Instagram, with #madeinItaly and called her a DG woman. It posted -- it generated more than 13,000 likes and 1100 comments, as of Tuesday afternoon. Among other things, the designer called her a beautiful woman.

In response to one Instagramer comment, "No. Whether she's beautiful or not, would you proud to dress Eva Braun?"

He responded, "Who is Eva Brown?"

Okay.

(laughter)

PAT: First of all, to compare Melania Trump to Eva Braun is asinine. Ludicrous.

GLENN: Well, on multiple levels.

PAT: Insanity.

GLENN: Insanity. Insanity. Donald Trump is not Adolf Hitler. In fact, only Adolf Hitler is Adolf Hitler.

PAT: Come on. Yes.

GLENN: And Eva Braun was insane. Insane.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: And to compare Melania Trump to this -- and so I -- I would just like to point out to all of the -- because the designers now are saying they will not make clothes for Melania Trump.

Well, let's talk about the bakers that wouldn't make a wedding cake, and those people had their First Amendment religious right at stake.

PAT: And completely violated.

GLENN: And completely violated. And you, now because you're a big-time fashion designer, you want to play by your own rules and say, "No, I got to pick and choose. I don't have to sell her a dress if I don't want to."

PAT: The bakers in Oregon were forced to pay $137,000 penalty to the couple they denied the wedding cake to. Wow.

GLENN: So let me -- so let me ask this: Do the designers -- do you still work for Hugo Boss, or have you shunned them? I mean, does anybody on the left buy any Hugo Boss? Because only haters would buy Hugo Boss because Hugo Boss actually designed and produced the SS black uniforms for Adolf Hitler. At the time, they knew who he was, they knew what he was doing, and not only did they produce them, designed them, they created them using Jewish slaves in labor camps.

Do you have a problem with Hugo Boss? I'm sure you're shunning them, right? Because you're willing to call Melania Trump Eva Braun. So if you're willing to say that about somebody who has nothing in common with Eva Braun, then, of course, you're shunning Hugo Boss.

Or how about the Rockefeller Foundation? Because you hate the Rockefeller Foundation, right?

The Rockefeller Foundation, you know, they actually helped found -- their money helped found the German eugenics program. Even funding -- the Rockefeller Foundation funded the program that Josef Mengele was working on before he went to Auschwitz.

So you're against the -- the Rockefeller Foundation, right? I mean, they funded Josef Mengele. So you, of course, don't have anything to do with them, right? Or Bayer. You don't take a Bayer Aspirin, do you? Because Bayer Aspirin, the sister company was IG Farben. And IG Farben, of course, was the one that made Zyklon B, the gas chamber gas.

So you would never take a Bayer Aspirin. Because that's not like, "Oh, my gosh." That's like Bayer Aspirin that helped develop Zyklon B. It's not like the people who designed Zyklon B. It is the people that designed Zyklon B.

Hugo Boss is not like the people who made the SS uniforms with Jewish slave labor. They are the company that made the SS uniforms with Jewish slave labor.

So I'm sure you care about that now, right?

I'm sorry. But just a few weeks ago -- a couple of weeks ago, we got off the plane from Haiti. And Pat and I went to Haiti and witnessed things that I've -- that I knew, but I didn't know.

I know that there are more slaves on planet earth today than ever. But they are so far distant from me, that I don't -- I can't relate to it, until I stand there and look at the fruit in Haiti and I look at the avocados from the Dominican Republic or the bananas from the Dominican Republic that we all eat that sit on my counter. And then see the children that had been caught in the slave trade because of all of the death of so many parents during the last hurricane. And was it an earthquake or hurricane? I can't remember now.

PAT: Earthquake.

GLENN: Earthquake. So many children. 300,000 homeless that were swept up into the slave trade.

But does anybody really care about that now? No, there's a lot of churches that go over. There's a lot of churches that are doing a lot of good will. And there are some churches that think they're doing a lot of good things, and they're not.

For instance, I don't know if you caught this, Pat, but we drove by what they would call a store. I would call it a slum house.

We were on a really busy street in Haiti, and we went by this store. And there, sitting on the shelves of the store, were bags of rice with the American flag on it. That rice was supposed to be given, not sold. Given, not sold. They're selling it in stores.

Corruption is rampant. And that rice, because we gave so much rice, the rice farmers can no longer make any rice because they got plenty of rice coming from the United States. So they can no longer grow food for themselves.

We think we're helping. Indeed, we may actually be hurting them. And on top of it, when you see orphanage after orphanage after orphanage where the country is being trapped in corruption and slavery and you come up to these children who are three years old, I have a boy -- Pat, you have two sons.

PAT: Three.

GLENN: Jeffy, you have --

JEFFY: I've got two sons and a daughter.

GLENN: I'm only pointing out sons because sons are usually over everything. Are they not? They're crawling. They're moving. They're constantly --

JEFFY: Oh.

GLENN: You held a baby girl for a long time. Robert and I held boys. I held that boy in my arms for probably 45 minutes. He held me and wrapped his arms around my neck. And every time I would try to put him down, he would hold tighter. What 3-year-old boy is doing that? He would push his face -- and I think the girl did it to you and the boy did it to Robin. They would push their face against our faces for skin-to-skin contact. They just wanted human affection.

Where is -- where is Hollywood on slavery? Where is Black Lives Matter? If black lives matter, you want to know where hell is, it's called Haiti. You want to fix the problem, there's ways to fix the problem.

We met with a guy in Haiti, probably one of the braver men I've ever met. Would you agree with that, Pat?

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: This guy was in charge of the sex crimes and slavery division in Haiti. You know you have a problem when you have a slavery division of your government task force.

He came in and met with us. And he actually had to walk in through a side door because he couldn't be seen with a couple of other people from Haiti, I guess. I don't know how that all worked.

But he came in and he spoke. And he said, "I just put the -- the main, if you will, Secret Service agent, the guy who is in charge of the president of Haiti, of his security, I just put him in prison for molestation of his daughter." Right? It was some sexual molestation charge.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: The president of Haiti pardoned him. This guy went back and said, "Sorry, no can do." And put him back in prison.

I looked at him and said, "You are completely alone, and even the president doesn't want this to stop." He knew he was facing a death penalty. Any doubt in your mind?

PAT: No.

GLENN: He knew. I have a good shot at dying for this, but it's worth it.

Can we maybe stop talking about, "I will design a dress, or I won't design a dress for Melania?"

Personally, I don't think -- if you don't want to design a dress for Melania, I don't think she's going to give a rat's ass. I don't think she's going to care. Not going to care. And it will say more about you than her.

But if you really want to have some standards, maybe you should talk to Hugo Boss. Maybe you should stop taking Bayer Aspirin. Maybe you should never use an IBM product. You know they made the filing system for the death camps. IBM helped sort the Jews out so they could help find them more efficiently. Maybe you should do that. Or you could just claim that Melania is Eva Braun. Eva Braun and so you're never going to make a dress. But please then don't talk to me about the baker who says, "Because of my religion, I can't be a part of your ceremony," if you're only talking to me about not making your precious dress for a person you disagree with their political stance. Not their religious stance.

Media, if somebody doesn't wake up soon, your window is closing. If somebody in media doesn't start reaching out -- quite honestly, a few people have. If you don't start to see some changes from the media, you're going to lose your opportunity.

But maybe they'll get more ratings that way. I was told by somebody -- did an interview yesterday with I think it was Variety. And they said, "How do you sell -- how do you sell a show that's not wrapped around fear or calling people names? Because that's what everybody does now." And I said, "Yeah, I know. And I think everybody is sick of it." He said, "Well, it doesn't usually prove out to be true." And I said, "Well, then I'll be broke, but I'll at least have my soul." But I think there's a strong hunger for people coming together.

My Patriot Supply.

At least there is with me.

New analysts suggest that climactic trends that lead to greater hurricane activity also create a coastal buffer that weaken storms at landfall.

Wait. What? The author of the study who is an atmospheric scientist called it an incredibly lucky phenomenon.

Climactic trends that lead to greater hurricane activity also are at the same time creating a coastal buffer that weakens the storm just before it hits land. You can call that --

PAT: Weird.

GLENN: Yeah, you can call that lucky.

PAT: Hmm.

GLENN: I might call that protection or Divine Providence or grace. Anything that we don't actually deserve. That's an amazing thing.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Anyway, My Patriot Supply is standing by to help. Whether you find yourself caught in an emergency like a hurricane or any other emergency or just -- you just can't make ends meet at the end of the month -- that is not uncommon. Seventy-two-hour emergency food kit now is only $10. Ten dollars for a 72-hour emergency food kit. That means if you have a family of four, you have an emergency, for three days, you don't have to worry about any food. Because you have it all. And it's little teeny packages that can be, you know, put into backpacks, thrown into the back of the car, and you're gone. Or you have three days' worth of food. If you're making it short at the end of the month, how much? For breakfast, lunch, and dinner for four people for three days. How much is it? Forty bucks.

$10 a kit. 72-hour emergency food kit for $10. Call them now. Call them now. 800-200-9031. 200-9031. 1-800-200-9031. Or you can go to preparewithGlenn.com. That's preparewithGlenn.com.

(OUT AT 10:25AM)

GLENN: So Eva Braun, the long-time girlfriend and said to be wife in the last few minutes of Adolf Hitler's life, Eva Braun, Melania Trump was compared to Eva Braun by people who are fighting for fashion because they said she's a beautiful woman and they're glad she's wearing her dress.

PAT: Dolce & Gabbana said it.

GLENN: Yeah, Dolce & Gabbana said it. And they're getting hammered for it. You know, I pointed out the history of Hugo Boss and the Rockefeller Foundation and all they did.

PAT: IBM.

GLENN: Just a couple of things. You know, there also was BMW. And I'm sure that nobody on the left drives a BMW. Because BMW used 30,000 slave labors, POW, and Jewish camp laborers to build BMWs.

JEFFY: That's why you never see any BMWs on the road.

GLENN: And, you know, Ford and GM, they control 70 percent of the automobile factories that became munitions factories. Ford and GM. That's why Hitler loved Ford. But I'm sure nobody in Hollywood. I know that your dress is very important. And to say that she should not be wearing one of your dresses because she's like Eva Braun, I'm sure those things that are like a Nazi or a Nazi sympathizer are disturbing. But certainly, it's much more disturbing for those that are not like them, but actually those people who sympathized and supported, right?

I mean, right? We need reparations.

PAT: Uh-huh.

GLENN: White people have got to pay for what happened in 1860. And I know you believe that. I know that what happened with slavery 150 to 200 and 400 years ago, that is white guilt. But I'm sure seeing that this one happened in either your lifetime or the lifetime of your parents and it affected the entire world and it was so horrific, I'm sure that you're -- because I know how you feel about Eva Braun who really had nothing to do with the war. She was just the love interest of Adolf Hitler.

So I know how passionately you feel about her. You must be passionate about Hugo Boss

PAT: Oh, because they're so consistent. You know that they're just as passionate about that. You know they are. You know they are. Of course.

GLENN: Yeah. Or not.

PAT: Or not.

GLENN: Or not. I'm not sure which one it is right now. Back in a minute.

Would Glenn make a better bounty hunter or a Jedi? You'll have to find out in a new episode of the Beltway Banthas Podcast, where Glenn goes deep on Star Wars with host Stephen Kent. In this 45 minute discussion, Stephen and Glenn explore the political themes of the Star Wars franchise, Darth Vader's redemption from Return of the Jedi, Glenn's earliest memories of seeing the films and even debate elements of the latest Star Wars films.

If you enjoy the pop culture and nerdy discussions that Glenn, Pat and Stu get into on the radio show, you'll love this! After you're through, you can also check out Stu Burguiere's appearance on Beltway Banthas to talk Star Wars. You can find that here.


It's never too early to start your Christmas, Hanukah, or Kwanzaa shopping. Or even birthday gift shopping. Especially if that special someone in your life is a Democrat. Because at last count, pretty much all the Democrats are now running for president. And that means there has never been a wider selection of official candidate merchandise to choose from. Whether you're into environmentalism, feminism, classism, socialism, or just plain love, there is a smorgasbord of classy items that you and yours will treasure forever... or at least until the next presidential election.

We have browsed each of the candidates' online stores, so you don't have to (it only took us three months). We have curated only the finest items from each of the Democrats running for president of the United States of America. Without further ado, here is your handy progressive gift guide – or maybe your what-not-to-gift guide.

First, the bargain basement options. Hurry! Time is running out to grab your Beto bandana, or your Delaney pack of golf balls, because at this point Stu has as much of a chance as these guys of getting the nomination.

Tom Steyer, for example – is he still in the race?


https://shop.tomsteyer.com/collections/frontpage/products/tom-2020-pattern-tee


There's way too much Tom here. That shirt's got more Toms than a Caucasian dentists' convention.

For the slightly more moderate Democrat in your life, perhaps they'd like to join the "Yang Gang"…

https://shop.yang2020.com/collections/bumper-stickers/products/yanggang-decal


Andrew Yang is a lock for Math Club president…


https://shop.yang2020.com/collections/apparel/products/math-hat


But for actual president? Well, I wouldn't make plans for how you're going to spend your $1,000-per-month Yang allowance just yet.

If you happen to be shopping for your dog, may I suggest this lovely "Dogs for Delaney" dog collar…


https://store.johndelaney.com/products/dogs-for-delaney-collar


John Delaney's definitely going to secure the canine vote with this kind of outreach. As for any human votes, that's another question entirely.

How 'bout this tastefully understated "Natural Canvas" Michael Bennet tote to remind you he's also still here?...


https://store.michaelbennet.com/michael-bennet-for-america-natural-canvas-tote/


Then again, it's a tote. So, it'll end up on the floor of your closet and you won't have it with you until that one random moment when you're out somewhere and you really need a tote bag. Just like Democrats will really wish they had a moderate when we're in the middle of the socialist nightmare of their creation.

Captain Planet himself, Jay Inslee recently dropped out of the race, but don't let that stop you from picking up what may be the greatest single item sold by anyone in this race…


https://store.jayinslee.com/elvis-the-elves-the-mystery-of-the-melting-snow-by-jay-inslee/


A children's book called Elvis & the Elves: the Mystery of the Melting Snow. Written and illustrated by Governor Jay Inslee. Talk about a whodunnit – how could that snow possibly be melting? Spoiler alert: it's because of evil, white, patriarchal capitalism. And Donald Trump.

Then there's the candidate who thinks you're a moron that can't pronounce his last name: Steve Bullock...


https://shop.stevebullock.com/collections/apparel/products/emoji-t-shirt


Get it? Bull. Lock. Oh, so that's how you say the name that sounds exactly how it's spelled.

There's another candidate who also thinks you need help pronouncing his last name…


https://store.peteforamerica.com/collections/apparel/products/boot-edge-edge-t-shirt


And he is definitely right about that. So, thank you, Pete "Boot Edge Edge." That helps.

Just outside the bargain bin section, but just barely, are candidates like Julian Castro and his "El Presidente" t-shirt…


https://store.julianforthefuture.com/julian-castro-loteria-card-white-tee/


When your last name's Castro, do you really want to go with a weird drawing of yourself as if you're a classic Latin American dictator on a postage stamp?

If you prefer a little "dark psychic forces" battling in your candidates, you'll love Marianne Williamson's "Turn Love Into a Political Force" rally sign…


https://store.marianne2020.com/collections/signs/products/love-rally-sign


"Turn Love Into a Political Force" would be an even better title for a Marianne Williamson album of 80s cover songs. And if you think I'm joking, then you haven't heard Bernie Sanders' classic 1987 folk album, We Shall Overcome. That's not a joke. Well, it is a joke, but it's also a very real thing.

Now, just a quick pause to consider the peculiar baby-wear that way too many candidates are selling…

…including Elizabeth Warren's trans-pride flag onesie. Let me get this straight – we can't force any gender on a child, because that's just cruel. But we can force a political advertisement on a baby? How do we know that baby is actually a Biden or Warren fan? The child may not even be a Democrat or a Socialist at all. That baby might self-identify as a Libertarian, or Republican, or even worse – a moderate Democrat.

Now to the premium items from the premium candidates. Elizabeth Warren – the candidate with the most honesty in her advertising…


https://shop.elizabethwarren.com/collections/apparel/products/impolite-arrogant-women-make-history-unisex-t-shirt

-AND-

https://shop.elizabethwarren.com/collections/drinkware/products/strong-american-unions-mug


Warren's merchandise reflects the woman herself – cold and humorless (watch her "This isn't funny" clip from the last debate here at the 4:27 mark). I'm sure she's really fun once you get to know her. Then again, maybe not.

Speaking of serious women, Kamala Harris wants to be president very badly for you, the people, as you can tell from her "For the People" poster…


https://store.kamalaharris.org/poster-for-the-people/


At $29.99 though, she's sure not charging "people's" prices. Of course, she might be having to pay royalties to a certain someone for riffing on their poster. Just saying.

For the race's number one socialist, there's a whole lot of capitalism going on in Bernie Sanders' campaign. He sells so many delightful items that it's hard to choose. But we did anyway. The most random item is this hundred-dollar, black, "Art of a Political Revolution – Artists for Bernie Sanders Coaches Jacket"…


https://store.berniesanders.com/collections/apparel/products/artists-for-bernie-coaches-jacket


Coaches across the land will be clamoring for this one. You know, since coaches are such a strong Bernie-socialist demographic.

If that's a little over your budget you might consider a "Feel the Bern" fanny pack, to help store all those government freebies you'll get from Bernie…


https://store.berniesanders.com/collections/apparel/products/feel-the-bern-fanny-pack


This is the only context in which you'll ever want to hear "feel the burn" and "fanny" in the same sentence.

And finally, from front-runner Joe Biden, we have this fine "Women's Fitted Biden Polo." Which is just about the best polo description ever…


https://store.joebiden.com/collections/apparel/products/biden-polo-womens-fit


It promises the kind of snug approach that Biden loves to provide women. Even when they don't ask.

This was one of the first homesteads in the area in the 1880's and was just begging to be brought back to its original glory — with a touch of modern. When we first purchased the property, it was full of old stuff without any running water, central heat or AC, so needless to say, we had a huge project ahead of us. It took some vision and a whole lot of trust, but the mess we started with seven years ago is now a place we hope the original owners would be proud of.

To restore something like this is really does take a village. It doesn't take much money to make it cozy inside, if like me you are willing to take time and gather things here and there from thrift shops and little antique shops in the middle of nowhere.

But finding the right craftsman is a different story.

Matt Jensen and his assistant Rob did this entire job from sketches I made. Because he built this in his off hours it took just over a year, but so worth the wait. It wasn't easy as it was 18"out of square. He had to build around that as the entire thing we felt would collapse. Matt just reinforced the structure and we love its imperfections.

Here are a few pictures of the process and the transformation from where we started to where we are now:

​How it was

It doesn't look like much yet, but just you wait and see!

By request a photo tour of the restored cabin. I start doing the interior design in earnest tomorrow after the show, but all of the construction guys are now done. So I mopped the floors, washed the sheets, some friends helped by washing the windows. And now the unofficial / official tour.

The Property

The views are absolutely stunning and completely peaceful.
