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.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
