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.

There is no transparency when it comes to the Biden administration, and Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz's recent exchange with the FBI’s Jill Sanborn is just another example. When questioned about alleged involvement the FBI had on January 6, 2021, Sanborn refused to answer almost every single time.

Do our government officials still work for us? Take a look at the latest headlines: The DOJ and U.S. Army are preparing for possible conflicts with "domestic terrorists," Biden's education secretary allegedly requested the NSBA letter that suggested treating upset parents like domestic terrorists, and President Biden said if you're not with him on the Democrats' voting bills, then you're with the Confederacy. Meanwhile, the FBI won't tell Congress whether it was involved in the the Jan. 6 Capitol riot and the corporate media insists that there's nothing to see here, especially concerning Ray Epps.

The American people are concerned, and it’s "extraordinarily disturbing" how far the federal government goes to avoid answering our questions, Glenn Beck said on the radio program. There's a very odd growing trend here: Our leaders, including the unelected ones, no longer answer to the people. This must stop now.

"The question that I have is, where is the transparency? And is anyone going to be held accountable? They are not afraid of our senators. They are not afraid of Congress," he stated. "This has got to stop. They have got to answer to the law. This is an oversight committee. Who is in charge, the FBI or the people? Once the people are not in charge and are not allowed to see the secret documents, we are toast. Toast!"

Have you ever wondered why so many insane things are happening simultaneously RIGHT NOW? Big corporations are going woke. The stock market got red-hot during a FORCED recession. Stores like Walmart and Target were allowed to stay open during the lockdown, but mom-and-pop stores on Main Street had to close, some of them forever.

On Wednesday's "GlennTV" special, Glenn Beck explains it all in this sneak-peek episode — a primer to his new book and the upcoming explosive, in-depth special: “The Great Reset: Joe Biden & the Rise of 21st-Century Fascism.” Co-author Justin Haskins joins along with Glenn’s head writer and researcher, Jason Buttrill, to answer audience questions about a topic that the media has tried to censor and “fact-check.” You will be equipped with everything you need to know about what the global elites of the world have planned for the transformation of society and YOUR life.

After new information came out that suggests Dr. Anthony Fauci intimidated and bribed scientists into dismissing the COVID-19 lab-leak theory, Sen. Rand Paul and Fauci got into a heated debate in a Senate hearing. But instead of providing answers, Fauci accused Sen. Paul of endangering him.

Sen. Paul joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Wednesday with his response and explained why he believes "people live in fear of what [Fauci] will do to them."

"It's all about money. If you cross Tony Fauci, you don't get your money. He controls the purse strings for the entire country, the entire university system. And he's been doing it for forty years," Sen. Paul began.

"It's consistent with his arrogance, this level of arrogance that he's developed. He said several weeks ago, that he is science and any attack on him is an attack on science. Yesterday, he said anybody who opposes him is encouraging death threats," he added.

"Look, I've been on the receiving end of semi-automatic gunfire. I was 20 yards away from Steve Scalise when he almost died. I was 10 feet away from a staffer that was shot. And, you know what? The guy doing the shooting was a Bernie Sanders supporter. But not one of us, not one of the Republicans on the ball field, said, 'Oh, it was Bernie Sanders' fault.' But that's the juvenile level of personal attack that Fauci is now stooping to. He is saying that the personal threats he gets are actually the fault of his critics."

Sen. Paul continued, "But the thing is, [Fauci] needs to answer the question. Everything he did in the committee yesterday was misdirection so he didn't have to answer the question. The question was, why did he smear three scientists from Stanford, Oxford, and Harvard? Why did he smear them as fringe epidemiologists? And why did he conspire against Francis Collins to take them down in a very public way? He wouldn't answer the question."

Over the past year, an increasing number of voices on the left have pushed for radical changes to our way of life, from reforming capitalism to enacting strict vaccine mandates. But are the American people behind these changes? A recent poll from the Heartland Institute and Rasmussen sought to find out, and the results are startling. The three-part poll asked likely voters for their thoughts on the Great Reset (half said they don't know what that is), COVID-19 authoritarianism, and whether they prefer former President Donald Trump or President Joe Biden.

The Heartland Institute's Justin Haskins joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to break down the results of this exclusive poll, including the disturbing revelation that roughly half of Democrats polled supported shockingly authoritarian COVID-19 policies. For example, nearly half of Democrats polled said they think federal or state governments should require unvaccinated people to live in "designated areas or facilitates," or essentially camps. Nearly half of Democrats supported a proposal "to fine or imprison individuals" just for questioning the efficacy of the existing COVID-19 vaccines on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications. And, when asked if people who refuse to get vaccinated should lose custody of their children, 20% of Democrats answered "yes."

But the poll showed some good news, too. Watch the video clip below for more details:
