The 'Muslim Ban': Should We Take Giuliani Literally?

As written, President Trump's executive order temporarily banning certain people from entering the US cannot be considered a so-called "Muslim ban." However, talking heads like former NYC Mayor Rudi Giuliani have muddied the waters.

"That Giuliani came out and said, Donald Trump just wanted a clever way to do a Muslim ban, that's the problem with it. Do you take him serious or literally?" Glenn said Tuesday on radio.

What easy test did Stu give the Trump administration to clear up this matter?

Watch the video above or read the transcript below for answers.

STU: I'm really hoping for a question from the -- maybe to Spicer today or Trump in some interview. Because I think there's an easy way for him to push off all of this Muslim ban talk that everybody keeps mentioning. Because the executive order does not say that.

He did -- and I understand why people are jumping to that. But that policy, which I opposed as vigilantly as anyone, the initial Trump proposal of a Muslim ban I think was unconstitutional and horrible.

GLENN: Right.

STU: But that policy is not this policy.

GLENN: Correct.

STU: So here's an easy way to test the Trump administration: Population of Iran is made up of 89 percent Shia Muslims and 9 percent Sunni Muslims. In Iran, Sunni Muslims are a religious minority. If they were persecuted by a terrible Iranian government, would they be allowed to go to the front of the line once refugee admissions continue like other religious minorities? If Episcopalians started violently persecuting Presbyterians somewhere, no one would say, "Well, they're all Christians, so you don't to have worry about it." The distinction would be important.

And I think what would surprise a lot of people is that Sunni Muslims being imported in that scenario --

GLENN: Do you think Spicer could answer that? I don't know enough about Spicer yet.

STU: I don't know, but, I mean, it's a good question to ask. And if the Trump administration were smart, they would say, "Wait a minute. Yeah, they would be okay." They're certainly okay by the language of it. Only the intent would prevent this from occurring.

GLENN: Right. The Giuliani problem is the sticking point here.

STU: It's very tough. Yeah, very tough.

GLENN: That Giuliani came out and said, "Donald Trump just wanted a clever way to do a Muslim ban." That's the problem with it. Do you take him serious or literally?

Megyn Kelly: 'Why I took my son out of his school'

Megyn Kelly says it's 'disgusting' what's happening with our doctors amid today's gender equality movement — and, maybe even worse — what's happening in our schools. Kelly details the question her son was asked 'weekly' in his school, leading to her decision to leave it: 'This is indoctrination. It's deeply confusing to the children, and it's wrong.'

WATCH: Biden’s Middle East Chaos: Our Dangerous Path to the Next 9/11

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."

WATCH: Glenn Beck reveals SHOCKING details of stalled Afghanistan rescue efforts

Glenn Beck and The Nazarene Fund have been working tirelessly to evacuate Americans and our allies from Afghanistan, thanks to the U.S. government's failure to do so. But it's been far from easy. A recent Newsweek article, titled "Taliban Holds Up Glenn Beck Group's Planes," addressed some of the most recent challenges. The article claimed that six planes — filled with Americans and SIVs ready for takeoff — were "grounded by the Taliban amid negotiations with the U.S. State Department." So, what's actually going on? Why is the State Department meddling in the rescue? And what are the next steps to get these Americans home?
