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.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
