No, President Trump DID NOT Bow to the Saudi King

The media and the left are trying to make the case that Donald Trump bowed to the king of Saudi Arabia during his trip to the Middle East --- which he did not. While being presented with a gold medal, the president lowered his head to assist the king in placing it around his neck.

“He's 6’ 5”. The king is what, 90, like 91 years old?” Glenn explained. “He's lifting this big gold thing, and the president bends over so he can put it around his neck.”

Of course, it was of no concern to the media and left when President Obama intentionally bowed to the Saudi King --- but seeking truth never stopped them before.

“Let me tell you something. Every president has bent over for the Saudis for a very long time, I don't think anything new is happening here. He did not bow to the Saudis,” Glenn said.

GLENN: Hello, America. Welcome to Monday. We're glad you're here. A lot going on. It was a good weekend for the president, I believe, wasn't it? It didn't seem to be -- seemed to be presidential. Seemed to be going really well. The press is trying to make something -- or the left is trying to make something out of how Donald Trump bowed to the Saudi king, which --

PAT: They actually called him a hypocrite for it --

GLENN: Well, if he would have bowed, he would have been.

PAT: But he didn't.

GLENN: Didn't bow?

PAT: That is not a bow.

JEFFY: No.

PAT: They're placing like a ribbon medal around his neck.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: And he bends over to make it easier for the placement. He wasn't bowing to the king.

GLENN: He's 6-5.

PAT: Ridiculous.

GLENN: He's 6-5. The king, is what? Ninety? Like 91 years old. Some crazy. You know, he's an old king. And he's lifting this big gold thing, and the president bends over so he can -- he put it around his neck.

And let me tell you something: Every president has bent over for the Saudis for a very long time.

JEFFY: Yes.

GLENN: So I don't think anything new is happening here. He did not bow to the Saudis.

Did you see Roger Stone had a real problem with this though? He said, getting that award --

PAT: No.

GLENN: Now the left -- or, sorry. Now the right is turning on Donald Trump. Because he -- he didn't say Islamic extremism in his speech. Apparently, he danced with some swords. And he accepted this award from the Saudis. And so Roger Stone came out and said, "This is atrocious. This is grotesque. This is a betrayal of everything he said on the campaign trail."

STU: I assume because Roger Stone has never said anything, that he either believed or was actually true, that the exact opposite is actually what happened.

GLENN: Yeah. That is really -- have you ever seen the documentary Get Me Roger Stone?

STU: It just started.

GLENN: Oh, it just came out?

STU: It just came out on Netflix. I have not seen it. It's supposed to be great.

GLENN: Yeah, it is. He's a despicable human being.

STU: Almost by his own admission.

GLENN: Oh, yeah. No, no. No, no, no. He admits to all of it.

PAT: Really?

GLENN: Oh, he is a despicable human being.

PAT: And he admits to being a despicable human being?

GLENN: Yeah. He says he's just playing into it because everybody says that's what he is anyway. So why not embrace it?

Well, or, you know, check yourself. You know, just say, "Maybe, I'm --

STU: I was falsely accused of murder. So I've just been murdering people. I mean, everyone thinks I'm a murderer anyway. I might as well murder.

GLENN: Yeah, that's pretty much it.

STU: Yeah. That's a terrible argument.

GLENN: Yeah. When you watch it, it's pretty bad.

But he didn't bow. The globe -- that spooky --

PAT: Orb.

GLENN: -- orb, that he had his hand on, apparently that's the symbol of some --

PAT: It's an illuminated globe at the global center for combating extremist ideology in Saudi Arabia.

GLENN: Hmm. Hmm. Yeah, that's going to --

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: They're doing a lot the good there, aren't they?

PAT: Yeah.

STU: Are they opposing the extremist ideology in Saudi Arabia? Is that the location of it, or is that the name?

PAT: That's the location of it. That's the location of it.

GLENN: Okay. Because do they know that --

PAT: That they have extremists --

GLENN: That the hijackers from 9/11 came from Saudi Arabia?

JEFFY: That's why they're opening this center.

GLENN: Right. Guys, look what we just figured out!

JEFFY: Right!

GLENN: Yeah. Somehow or another, I think that's going to turn around on us.

PAT: Wahhabism comes from Saudi Arabia. So maybe start there. I don't know.

JEFFY: Just put your hand on the orb. Just put your hand on the orb.

PAT: It is a cool little orb. Cool/creepy.

GLENN: Cool? Yeah, it's a little creepy. Maybe --

STU: It looks like a scene from a movie.

GLENN: It does. It does. It looks like, "And now, we all put our hand on the orb, and it will read our handprints. And it will start the doomsday device."

STU: This is the case with every president though. Like, you go to these other countries. You know these pictures are going to look terrible for you at home, but you're trying to have a good relationship with another country, so you just kind of go along with it. And then it becomes like the defining moment of your presidency. It does seem like it's a pretty common occurrence.

GLENN: Well, it never seemed to hurt Barack Obama. You remember the pictures or the video of George Bush going to open up the big Chinese stores?

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: Okay. And how many times they ran that over and over and over again.

STU: That closed.

GLENN: That exact footage exists with -- with Barack Obama.

PAT: Obama. Yeah.

GLENN: He did the exact same thing, but they just didn't make a big deal out of it.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: So, I mean, when you're going over there -- I mean, when George Bush was dancing -- where was dancing? And he just looked ridiculous.

STU: Uh-huh.

JEFFY: Well, it was -- Mr. Trump -- President Trump didn't look that great dancing with the swords himself.

GLENN: Well, yes. Yes. And I'm not sure, as president, I'm going to dance with the swords.

STU: Yeah, I don't know what you do. Because, I mean, you know, it is the one of those things. You're being honored. They're telling you, "These are our wonderful traditions. They mean so much to us. Thank you so much for coming. It's so important you're involved in this." And, yeah, you can say "no," I guess. But it's a tough spot. I mean, I don't know. No one seems to be able to actually pull off a "no" out the that. It's just a matter the whether the press decides to mock you for it afterwards. Which is funny, because the same people who are telling us how important it is to be multicultural and understand diversity and people's other customs are the people mocking.

GLENN: Like any -- like name a news person. I hate to stick Jake Tapper out. Because he's a nice guy and tries to be honest. Name a --

STU: Scott Pelley.

JEFFY: Well, there's always Lester Holt.

GLENN: Do you think Lester Holt is going to look good dancing with swords? Nobody is going to look good dancing with swords.

JEFFY: Hmm.

STU: I think you're right on that. And it's funny because that's the type of thing that the enlightened liberal does. Right?

JEFFY: Yes.

STU: You're in the city. You go to some festival in some area of town where the dumb tourists don't go, and you go and you participate in an authentic event, in Brooklyn.

And in like -- now, you know, Trump or Bush or whatever Republican goes to the actual authentic event in the actual country and participates in it, they just get mocked for it. Because they look like morons. You're an idiot. Look, I can't believe you danced like that. Well, that's the thing -- you would praise it in any other circumstance.

But, I mean, that's the world we live in.

PAT: Meanwhile, they'll go ahead and dance at a gay pride parade with the buttocks removed from the back of their pants, and that's fine. That's perfectly fine.

GLENN: Well, we find out this weekend that -- we knew this to be true.

Glenn Beck: Here's how YOU can fix the Great Reset's housing crisis

How's the housing market looking these days? Because under Build Back Better (aka the Great Reset), investors are grabbing up homes at a record pace.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn discussed a recent Redfin News report, which shows that almost one in five homes sold in the U.S. during the third quarter of 2021 was purchased by an investment firm, and many are paying tens of thousands of dollars over the asking price.

"Think of that, one in every five homes that are sold are going to a big investment firm," Glenn said. "Investors bought more than 90,000 homes, totaling more than $63 billion, representing 18% of all homes sold in the quarter. The numbers broke all records."

"The same factors have pushed more Americans to rent, which also creates opportunities for investors, because investors typically turn the homes they purchase into rentals," he continued. "And now they can charge higher rents. Rent for single-family homes surged by more than 10% in the 12 months, through September. The fastest annual rent inflation in 16 years."

"And nearly 77% purchased were bought in an all-cash transaction," Glenn added. "That's not your average person. These investment firms, like BlackRock, are going in and buying entire neighborhoods. They are the people that come in, and say, 'I'll give you $70,000 over the asking price.' ... Now, why would investment firms think they will just be able to make money paying $70,000 over the asking price? What is it that they know, that you don't know? Could they know, as the Great Reset states, that by 2030, you will own nothing and you'll like it?"

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck exposes the radical plan to flip the United States from capitalism to socialism and into a lawless nation. It's an old strategy that mirrors a communist Cold War playbook. The goal now, as it was then, is this: How do they get a revolution without all that civil war stuff? It’s a five-step plan, and we're deep into several of the main steps RIGHT NOW.

Our justice system has been infiltrated by woke leftists, and something called "the progressive prosecutor movement" is methodically transforming Main Street USA into Main Street Gotham City. We can see it all over the country in places like San Francisco, with the Waukesha massacre as a terrifying glimpse into more of what's coming. And the media? They're currently running interference in one of the largest misinformation operations in history.

It’s happening at the city, state, AND federal levels. And President Trump might be one of the biggest victims of them all, a fact that even Trump critic Joe Rogan has realized on the Russia collusion hoax: “No one is being held accountable!” That ends now, as Glenn calls on Americans to push back on the lies that keep us divided in a cold civil war.

A "one-world government" is being formed right now and it’s called the Great Reset, Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. And now, rebuild plans for the fire-damaged Notre Dame Cathedral hint at the formation of a global church, too.

In this clip, Glenn detailed plans for the iconic, 850-year-old church’s "woke" renovations that sound more like a 'politically correct Disneyland' complete with a "discovery trail," "emotional spaces," and 14 themed chapels.

"Notre Dame is now being built back better as a 'woke theme park' dedicated to environmentalism and social justice," Glenn explained.

"There will be several different chapels within, [for example] a chapel for social justice, and then chapel for environmental justice," he continued. "Which leads me to this point. The 'one-world government' is being formed, right now. One-world government. It is being formed and it's called The Great Reset."

Glenn went on to predict that one of the first steps in the direction of a one-world government will be a push for a global religion.

"I think we're seeing the first church now being dedicated to the new global religion — and it is social justice, environmental justice, and all this gobbledygook. We all know, it's not just wrong, it is dangerous. That's the first church, the cathedral of Notre Dame, in France, is the first global church. Mark my words. Christian, Jews, Muslims ... this global church will bring darkness unlike you've ever seen."

The Omicron COVID-19 variant: Should we ACTUALLY panic?

As the new Omicron variant of the coronavirus approaches, it seems like those in power want everyone to be terrified, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program Monday.

The chair of the World Medical Association's Council, Frank Ulrich Montgomery, is already comparing the variant to Ebola and New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) has declared a state of emergency, despite the doctor who announced its discovery describing the new variant's symptoms as "unusual, but mild." So, should we really be worried or not?

In this clip, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere reviewed what we know about the Omicron variant so far and gave a few reasons why we should wait for more information before succumbing to panic.
