Body Language Expert Bill O'Reilly Explains Melania's Hand Slap: She Was Furious With Putin

There's been quite the controversy brewing the past week in the media. First lady Melania Trump appears to have avoided holding her husband's hand on several occasions during their first overseas trip as POTUS and FLOTUS. Friday on radio, Glenn invited weekly guest Bill O'Reilly to address the heated, controversial issue.

"Bill, I hope you take this as seriously as we do, and I know you do --- or will --- because you're a body language expert," Glenn joked.

Expert may be taking it too far.

"I'm an observer of your body language, Beck, and it's frightening," O'Reilly chided.

So what did O'Reilly make of Mrs. Trump slapping away the president's hand when they landed in Jerusalem?

"I guess I didn't take it as a slap. It was, look, I can make it down here myself. I try to stay away from that kind of stuff. But, yes, it was amusing to those who don't like the Trumps," O'Reilly said.

What about day two of the brush-off controversy?

"The next day on the tarmac, he reaches for her hand, and she moves her hand and crosses her face to brush back her hair . . . and he doesn't reach for her hand again. Coincidence?" Glenn asked.

Could we infer that FLOTUS is miffed with POTUS based on that?

"I think she's furious with Putin and is transferring," O'Reilly deadpanned.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

GLENN: Bill, I want to ask you this: Because there's been quite a controversy over three events this week. One happened yesterday. One happened I think on Tuesday. And then one happened on Wednesday. Start on Tuesday. He's landing in Jerusalem, President Trump. And he's coming down the red carpet, and there is footage of Melania -- Trump reaching out to hold Melania's hand, and she slaps it away. Did you see it?

BILL: Yeah. I guess. I didn't take it as a slap. It was, look, I can make it down here myself. I try to stay away from that kind of stuff. But, yes, it was amusing to those who don't like the Trumps.

GLENN: No, it wasn't amusing to me because I live that life. My wife has done that to me. And I just didn't know someone who was all hoity-toity actually has that happen to him. And then.

PAT: Next day.

GLENN: The next day on the tarmac, he reaches for her hand, and she moves her hand and crosses her face to brush back her hair, and he doesn't reach for her hand again. Coincidence?

BILL: Yeah, might be mad at him for something. You know how that goes.

PAT: You'll admit that, though. It looks like she's mad at him.

GLENN: It might. It might. Maybe.

PAT: I mean, I know you don't like to connect the dots. But can we infer that she's pissed off at him?

BILL: I think she's furious with Putin and is transferring.

[Laughter]

GLENN: All right. The next one. This has nothing to do with Melania. Did you see the footage from yesterday with Donald Trump at the NATO summit where he took -- if you want to call it a president -- the president of Montenegro and just pushed him out of the way and then stood in front. Like, didn't even have an excuse. Not, like, hey, excuse me, for a second. I have to hear this. You just pushed him out of the way, stood in his place, and then just kind of looked around. Did you see that?

BILL: I did not see that, I have to confess. But I did read about that. But what I read on the progressive websites was he kicked him in the groin.

GLENN: No, no, no.

BILL: No?

GLENN: You're not taking this seriously, Bill.

PAT: Are you sensing that too?

BILL: No, MSNBC.

GLENN: This is real news.

BILL: That didn't happen?

GLENN: No and the Montenegro guy, president or king, or whatever that is, that's important to NATO. I mean, we don't have the fighting --

PAT: We lose Montenegro, and it's over.

GLENN: We don't have the fighting Montys with us, it's over.

BILL: Montenegro is a beautiful country. But there's a tradition perhaps you don't know, beck. As a sign of affection and respect, you shove people.

GLENN: Especially the president.

BILL: Because the more you shove, the more you love them.

GLENN: I like that. I didn't know that. I didn't know that.

BILL: Any international stuff, just run it right by me.

GLENN: So you've been to Montenegro.

BILL: Many times. I have a condo there.

GLENN: Right there by the beach area.

BILL: Good view of Kosovo.

GLENN: Right. It's beautiful. Beautiful. Especially this time of year.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.
