Former Military Listener With Latino Heritage Grades Trump

Glenn took calls from listeners today who graded Trump on his first 100 days as president. The answers varied greatly, but one listener from Georgia who is also former military, gave Trump a C- and shared how his Latino heritage has him torn on the issue of immigration.

Enjoy the complimentary clip or read the transcript for details.

GLENN: Hello, America. Let's go to Dave in Georgia. Hello, Dave. What grade do you give the president for -- for his first 100 days?

CALLER: Glenn, I would say like a B-minus. Maybe a C-plus. And I'll give you a reason why. Georgia went for Trump, I know. But I wrote in someone else, someone who was a more security-minded person like myself.

But, anyway, Trump's the president. So I say, "Okay. Let's see what he does." And so I like Gorsuch, don't get me wrong. But then we're at 6.8 percent into the term, and I -- you know, I'm not one for giving out a trophy for participation, but I'm not one for, you know, grading someone at 6.8 percent of the score here on how they're -- how they're doing --

GLENN: I agree -- I agree with you. I agree with you.

But this is a deal that, you know, every president deals with, the first 100 days.

PAT: And it's a landmark he set up.

GLENN: Right. It's a landmark that he himself said in the first 100 days, I will do these things. He's not done almost all of those things. And, in fact, folded on some of those things.

So, you know, just grading him on the landmark that every president has had to do and he himself set up this own thing. So we're just asking to judge him and trying to hear from the people of the country, not the media. I mean, it's the people of the country that matter.

CALLER: Agree. Agree. So just putting on blinders and looking at these 100 days, I would say that there are three or four things that are good and that there are three or four things that are bad. So it's middle of the road. But it's still early overall to be able to say, yay or nay.

GLENN: I agree. So what are the things that you agree with?

STU: Right.

CALLER: I like Gorsuch. I like strong on security. I'm a former military person. And that is something that I'm seeing that -- that I align with. And I'm also interested in seeing sanctuary -- well, I've seen some backing up on sanctuary cities.

GLENN: Big time.

CALLER: Which is something -- I'm of Hispanic heritage. So I have this mixed emotion about, because my Latino side says, "Well, let's be a little lenient." And my, you know, military American side says, "Wait a minute, we have to put up borders. Our country has to be protected." And so I have a mixture of feelings with that.

But I think that you do have to look at immigration as a whole, and that he is looking at immigration as a whole. And that we've seen illegal immigration drop drastically. And so those are the three key things that I say that are happening positive.

GLENN: That's great. Dave, thank --

CALLER: The things that are negative, there are a lot of other things that may be --

GLENN: Yeah.

CALLER: Like you feel like he's dragging his feet on. But it will happen. It will happen.

GLENN: Okay. Dave, thank you very much for your phone call.

You know what's very interesting, I asked, before he was elected, I said, "Is there anything that he could do that would make you turn on him, Trump supporters only?" And it's strange because they're not. The answer was, "Yes --

PAT: Immigration.

GLENN: -- if he doesn't build the border wall."

PAT: Yeah.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: We now have a new budget out that specifically says no money can be used to build the border wall.

THE GLENN BECK PODCAST

Dangerous Tech Oligarchs Who Answer to No One | Glenn Greenwald | Ep 104

Have you noticed how the people who call everyone a conspiracy theorist are the biggest conspiracy theorists of all? Like the Russia Collusion conspiracy theory that the Washington elite used to discredit Trump and force him out of Washington, D.C. Or how the CIA is the real power center of American politics. Glenn Greenwald, Pulitzer-Prize-winning journalist and author of the new book, "Securing Democracy: My Fight for Press Freedom and Justice in Bolsonaro's Brazil," is an outsider in the media because he calls out these abuses of power. For one, he agrees that the Deep State is real.

Greenwald is a rare breed these days: He does actual journalism. He explains things very well, like his description of Trump's appeal and Obama's mystique. He and Glenn cover so many topics: Woke corporations, Julian Assange, the #MeToo movement, Putin, Snowden, The Constitution, Big Tech censorship. Why does the Left call Greenwald right-wing but the Right calls him left-wing? For a journalist, that used to be a badge of honor. But as Greenwald points out, the journalism industry has become a Woke priesthood. So, if you want to learn about actual journalism, listen to this episode. It's totally worth getting through a couple of technical difficulties.

GLENN ON TUCKER: The elites are using COVID to reshape the world

Wasn't life supposed to go back to normal once the vaccines were widely distributed? The lack of information coming from the government elites should be a sign that maybe, just maybe — all their experts are out of ways to spin this? Or could it be the elites are using COVID to reshape the world into THEIR own image?

Critical Race TYRANNY: The Great Reset of Education

A virus has escaped the university labs and is super-spreading through our culture. It's called Critical Race THEORY and what used to be a fringe topic in the academic world is now a dangerous Marxist REALITY infecting our public schools where students are taught the U.S. is a "parasitic system" based on the "invasion" of "white male settlers."

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how some teachers are being instructed to "cash in on kids' inherent empathy" in order to train them to become "activist intellectuals," starting as early as first grade.

CRT is an absolute toxin to America and Glenn warns that in just one generation the Constitution, freedom, and true equality will be totally destroyed. Yet, any opposition to the spread of this disease is shouted down as racism and bigotry. If Critical Race Theory is not already in your local school curriculum, it will be soon.

Joined by Asra Nomani, Vice President for Strategy and Investigations at Parents Defending Education, Glenn arms you with the facts about CRT so you can stand up to this tyranny in your community.

NO comparison between REAL Jim Crow laws & Georgia voting bill

The left keeps comparing Georgia's new voting regulations to Jim Crow era laws, arguing the voting bill is too restrictive and even racist against minority populations. But Glenn argues that it's an INSULTING comparison to make, especially to those who actually lived and experienced the real, horrifying Jim Crow laws during the early 20th century. In this clip, Glenn explains what Jim Crow ACTUALLY means and how Georgia does not even COME CLOSE.
