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.

Earlier this year, Coca-Cola became the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But now, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appears to be shifting directions.

The Washington Examiner reported that the company issued a conciliatory statement after conspicuously failing to appear on a published list of hundreds of corporations and individuals that signed a statement denouncing the Georgia voting bill.

"We believe the best way to make progress now is for everyone to come together and listen respectfully, share concerns, and collaborate on a path forward. We remained open and productive conversations with advocacy groups and lawmakers who may have differing views," the company said. "It's time to find common ground. In the end, we all want the same thing – free and fair elections, the cornerstone of our democracy."

Then last week, Coca-Cola Co.'s new general counsel, Monica Howard Douglas, told members of the company's global legal team that the diversity initiative announced by her predecessor, Bradley Gayton, is "taking a pause for now." Gayton resigned unexpectedly from the position on April 21, after only eight months on the job, to serve as a strategic consultant to Chairman and CEO James Quincey.

"Why is Coca-Cola 'taking a pause' on all of these? Because you have been standing up," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. "You and others have been standing up. Your voice, it's the power of one. Your voice makes a difference."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.
