Here's How Glenn Thinks Trump Is Doing As President So Far

Four days into Donald Trump's presidency, Glenn reported on how he's feeling about the new Commander-in-chief so far.

"Not looking to the past, not looking to the future, just looking right now," Glenn said on radio Tuesday. "I'm feeling pretty good."

Read the transcript below for more.

GLENN: What's with the scatterbrain? Stu, none of us can remember. We start -- I started the question. We said that we would give him a fair shake.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: And not looking to the past, not looking to the future, just looking right now, did I ever finish that? Go around the room and --

STU: You and Pat answered it, I believe. And then we kind of got off on a tangent.

GLENN: Okay. So I'm feeling pretty good, except for those things. How are you feeling?

PAT: Yeah, pretty good.

STU: He's exceeded my expectations so far.

GLENN: Well, you had no expectations.

STU: I don't know why you need to point that out.

But seriously, there's been -- I think it's been a mixed bag. I'm not thrilled, but I'm thrilled with some of the things. I think what's interesting about Trump and watching him go through this is he is -- he's sort of a, you know, jam your foot on the gas guy. And when it connects with something you're -- you like, he's amazing.

For example, so far on the EPA and those related issue, energy and EPA, he's been I think very good.

GLENN: He's about to sign -- he's about to open the Keystone oil pipeline.

STU: Yeah. And the Dakota one as well.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: His EPA chief pick I think was very solid. He's been very good on those things. And because that's an issue I'm passionate about, I really like it. I'm also passionate about free trade. And I don't agree with him on that. And his stances there are going to be problematic for me. You know, the Flynn appointment is a disaster for me. It's really bad. And that one, I think, is -- is really problematic. But I would say, overall, you know, speaking generally, I think he's certainly exceeded my expectations, and I think a lot of the picks have been really good. Not just kind of good. Not just okay, well, that's acceptable from a Republican president. Actually beyond that, because he doesn't seem to care, which is great.

However, on the issues I don't agree with him on, it's going to hurt a lot. You know, if we see this sort of dynamic, where there's really good things or really bad things, as long as the bad isn't too, too bad, it's going to be better than I expected. And look, I hope that's the case. I hope it continues. One of the things we talked about yesterday on Pat & Stu is how stupid this protest was by the left.

Think about this. You have a guy who in the campaign asked for $680 billion for federal funding for maternity leave.

GLENN: Uh-huh.

STU: He values his daughter Ivanka seemingly more than anybody on the planet and trusts her judgment and embraces it.

So now you set up a dynamic, instead of working with him to try to get those things done, which no other Republican would do for you, you go out there and oppose him and just piss him off. And the way Trump seems to react to things like that is, "Oh, you thought you're getting that? No way." He will step back and build a wall around himself and say, "Screw you. You're going to go out there and protest me with 3 million people, screw you. You're never getting any of those things now." That's a terrible tactic.

GLENN: Unless you're playing for long-term discord.

Jason Whitlock: Here’s why black men & black Americans relate to Donald Trump

Black celebrities like Kanye West & Ice Cube aren't alone. In fact, sportswriter Jason Whitlock says it shouldn't be a surprise that more and more black men are supporting Donald Trump. He says that unlike President Obama, Trump actually "has a record" of helping black Americans. And, because he's an alpha male, Whitlock says the president's fearlessness is something black men relate to. Whitlock explains why Trump nearly convinced him to register to vote, and he describes how his long-time Democratic mother reacted when she experienced a softer side to the president.

Megyn Kelly: Media coverage of President Trump is ‘DISGUSTING’

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:

Bill O’Reilly: 'Be cautioned' if you think Hunter Biden story is enough to nail Joe

Bill O'Reilly is back! He joins Glenn to discuss the second — and last — presidential debate of the campaign season and he comments on whether or not Trump did enough to convince the average, uninformed voter of Joe's blatant corruption overseas. O'Reilly explains the origin of the Democrat narrative on Russian interference, why moderator Kristen Welker tried to stay off the Ukraine topic, and whether or not he believes Joe will be taken down by stories that mostly center on his son, Hunter.
