Here's Why Ellen DeGeneres Is Wrong About Trump in This Response to Megyn Kelly

Megyn Kelly was asked during an appearance on “The Ellen Degeneres Show” if she would ever have President Donald Trump on her own show.

Kelly said yes, she would have any sitting president of the United States on for an interview. DeGeneres vehemently said she would not – slamming Trump as a danger to her because she’s gay.

“I can’t have someone that I feel is not only dangerous for the country and for me personally as a gay woman, but to the world,” DeGeneres said in the clip.

On Friday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program,” Glenn Beck sympathized with her objections to Trump but noted that DeGeneres was mistaken on one thing: Trump’s record on gay rights.

Trump has stood with the gay community over the years, welcoming gay couples in his Mar-a-Lago country club before it was considered socially acceptable; inviting gay activist Peter Thiel to speak at the 2016 Republican convention; and condemning the homophobic attacker who murdered gay people at the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando in 2016.

“This is not a guy who is not a friend to gay people,” Glenn said.

ELLEN: Would you have him on your show?

MEGYN: Definitely. I mean, I would not say no to the sitting president of the United States.

ELLEN: Really?

MEGYN: Absolutely not. Would you?

ELLEN: Yeah.

MEGYN: You would?

ELLEN: Yeah.

(applause)

ELLEN: I would not have him...

I mean, look -- now, I'm going to get bad tweets. But I just -- I just -- you know, he is who he is. And he has enough attention. And he has his -- his Twitter account. And he has ways to get his message across.

There's nothing I'm going to say to him that's going to change him, and I don't want to give him a platform. Because it's just -- it validates him. And for me to have someone on the show, I really -- I have to -- I have to at least admire them in some way. And I can't have someone that I feel is -- is not only dangerous for the country, for me personally as a gay woman, but to the world. He's dividing all of us. And I think -- I don't want to represent -- I think -- I just, I don't want him on the show.

GLENN: So she said that -- she went on to say this Ellen and Megyn Kelly. That he is a danger to people like her.

Ellen, I mean, there's many reasons to not have Donald Trump on your show. There's many reasons not to like Donald Trump. But that's not one of them. And you -- you do yourself a disservice by getting his record wrong on gay rights.

Daily Wire did a great piece yesterday where they were talking about in the 1980s and the 1990s, he donated heavily to the AIDS outbreak. When he was talking about a third party run in 1999, he went on the record saying, he would add sexual orientation to the Civil Rights Act. He's also believed to be the first private club owner, to allow a gay couple in to the country club.

And that is in Palm Beach -- that was Mar-a-Lago. This is not a guy who is not a friend to gay people. In 2015, he forcefully went after the attackers on the Paris -- or, I'm sorry, on the pulse nightclub in Orlando.

He spoke the ugly truth that radical Islam is not a friend to the LGBT community. He went to Cleveland, and he talked about how he will -- he had a vow to protect that community. He went on to have Peter Thiel, who is an openly gay, you know, Silicon Valley-type tycoon. Addressed the Republican convention.

He has Peter Thiel, part of his transition team. Still part of his team. He's considering Richard Genelle, an openly gay man, to be his ambassador to the UN. This is not a foe to people who believe in gay rights.

Again, there are reasons not to agree with the president, there are reasons to not like the president, there are reasons to -- to say, "Well, I think he's dividing people and he hates X, Y, or Z," but you have to at least base those things in fact. And the fact is that this president is the most gay friendly president in the history of the United States of America.

Christians are conflicted when it comes to President Donald Trump. Some proudly support him and his policies, while others just can't accept the man behind the boorish language.

Ruth Graham, daughter of the late evangelist Billy Graham, joined Glenn Beck on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to make a case for the president from a Christian's point-of-view.

On Thursday's radio program ,Glenn interviewed Dr. Karlyn Borysenko, who described what it was like attending a President Trump rally as a Democrat. She told Glenn Beck that crossing party lines is nearly forbidden in liberal circles but she branched out anyway — and learned quite a bit about the other side.

Ryan: Bernie at the airport Holiday Inn

(Part One) . (Part Two). (Part Three).

Some poor guy booked a hotel at the Holiday Inn Airport Conference Center in Des Moines on February 3, 2020, assuming it would be a harmless Monday night. Only to find himself in the middle of an overflowing Bernie rally on the night of the caucuses.

For the record, the man was not a Bernie Sanders supporter. Far from it. He popped his head backward when I told him where I work, smiling. Well, grinning, to be precise.

*

After her speech, Klobuchar wandered into the crowd, immediately submerged. Selfies. Everybody wanted them. A minute later, the other candidates began to appear on screen, giving speeches.

"Bernie," asked Justin Robert Young, host of Politics Politics Politics.

"Bernie," I said, and we paced to the car and lurked out onto the depopulated streets and the trenchant cold. But we were both bright with excitement, a couple of detectives. The valet attendants in their satin outfits saw two oddities, and they were right.

Justin Young and I had just left the Des Moines Marriott Downtown for Amy Klobuchar's "Amy for America caucus night party." She gave her speech, in a brilliant maneuver. I skated the Nissan down empty streets, quietly listening to Bernie's speech on the Iowa Public Radio station.

"I love this, what we're about to do," I said, gripping the wheel, words hurried, leaning forward, tapping my left boot. "We're going to hear Bernie talking, then we'll park, then walk through some doors and we will stroll into that very room as Bernie is giving the speech that's being broadcast to millions of people."

It was like how in the game Mario Bros., Mario can jump into giant green storm drains, occasionally. Like leaping into the television and joining the cast.

"There's nobody out on the roads," one of us said. "Holiday Inn, right up there." As broad-winged commercial airplanes floated overhead. We scoured for a parking spot and each second felt wasted. Urgent. We needed to be inside that hotel. But there was nowhere to park. Even the illegal spots were taken. Cars had creviced every inch of parking lot and curb and all that, had even jammed into dark pyramids of sludge.

Rita Dove wrote, "I prefer to explore the most intimate moments, the smaller, crystallized details we all hinge our lives on."

*

There were so many more journalists press at Bernie's event that the only media spots left were in the overflow room, which itself seemed at capacity. Dank, too. With a heavy vibe, like a sinister library.

The entire hotel exuded gloom. A quietness you hear in locker rooms after a game that should have ended differently.

Bernie supporters, dazed, stomped out into the snow, or to the bathrooms, or just in need of a bit of stomping.

Back to Beechwood Lounge, where we watched the Super Bowl a day earlier. Although it felt like a week had passed since then.

Approaching midnight, by that point.

Because Justin consumes politics with an all-encompassing urgency. As if it's a duty. He's clearly studied history and politics for years. Part historian, part political scientist, but also part reporter and part comedian. On one hand, he's guided by the old school approach to journalism. Objectivity. Solemnity. Accuracy.

An American has the right to tell nobody who they voted for. Or maybe it's a cultural thing.

Snow everywhere you look, piles of it full of gas and oil, and rubbish as well. That day was unseasonably warm. The next would plummet us into literal freezing. The kind of day that slows everyone down. With all that ice, you have to be cautious about every step.

Shame is for the uninitiated.

In 1990 Michael Bloomberg's employees created a short book full of crude, sexist, and shocking quotes he allegedly said at work, including one story that has him telling a female employee to "kill it" after she announced she was pregnant. Sadly, that story has him fitting right in with the Democratic party in 2020.

The booklet, titled, 'Wit & Wisdom of Michael Bloomberg,' has resurfaced to haunt the Democratic presidential candidate after "The Washington Post" published the full text on Saturday.

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Monday, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere (filling in for Glenn) shared some of the less colorful (many were too lewd to be repeated on radio,) but no less disgusting quotes.
