Trump Had a Bad Week – and It’s His Own Fault

Unemployment is down, the economy is up, and what’s President Donald Trump doing? Not focusing on the positive or advocating for the GOP’s tax reform bill … he’s tweeting, and it’s getting him into trouble over and over.

On today’s show, Glenn didn’t understand why Trump isn’t shouting these great numbers from the rooftop; instead, the president is lying about TIME magazine; sharing anti-Muslim videos from a racist group and clashing with British Prime Minister Theresa May; and implying that TV host Joe Scarborough should be investigated for murder.

“Here’s the strategy I think that the president hasn’t tried yet: Stay off of Twitter,” Glenn said.

GLENN: For the love of heaven, why won't President Trump get out of his own way? This week, there was positive economic news that most past presidents would have shouted from the rooftops. The fact that the US economy has competed its potential output for the first time in a decade. The third quarter of 2017 is the strongest in three years.

Yesterday, the Dow closed above 24,000. An all-time record. How about this one? The unemployment rate is the lowest it has been in 17 years!

I mean, those are good -- you should be shouting those. The Republican tax reform bill is also inching its way through Congress this week. It's looking likely that it will pass, which will be a much needed win for the president. His only significant legislative accomplishment of the entire year.

This should have been a slower week of positive vibes and -- and fluff pieces on the White House. And the Christmas decorations. I mean.

Instead, Donald Trump hijacked any good press he might have enjoyed mainly through Twitter. He said that TIME magazine called to say he was probably going to be named the TIME man of the year, second year in a row, which TIME said, no, we didn't.

He said, we should have fake news competition for the TV networks with a trophy prize. He shared anti-Muslim videos from a racist British group, infuriating the prime minister of England. And for good measure, he implied that Joe Scarborough should be investigated for murder. All that on top of his Pocahontas comment, which was a fiasco.

Donald Trump seems to want to want positive media coverage about him, yet he feeds the media constant negative fodder for all of his negative tweets.

Here's the strategy I think the president hasn't tried yet: Stay off of Twitter. Stay off it. Don't punch any keys. You're sitting there in the john in the morning, don't do it. Try it for a week, maybe two.

If he wouldn't give the media stupid things to be distracted with, surely they would be forced to find something else to talk about. In theory, at this point, he has set such a precedent with his tweets, that the stories would probably be all about why isn't the president tweeting?

Unmasking the OTHER Deadly Pandemic: What's Killing Our Kids

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.

Watch the special in full below:

IBM's Role in Killing Jews & Lessons for Big Tech | Edwin Black | Ep 97

Edwin Black is the son of Holocaust survivors and an investigative journalist with awards and best-selling books translated into 20 languages in nearly 200 countries. His book "IBM and the Holocaust" examines high tech's role in killing Jews during the Holocaust and what it can teach us about the dangers of Big Tech today.

Edwin has spent enough time in the media to see all of its warts (there are a lot). And he's speaking out about it and its role in ignoring history at our nation's peril.

He also discusses Disney actress Gina Carano, fired for comparing conservative persecution to the Nazi treatment of the Jews. Our culture is being erased. Our ideals and values are being censored and mocked. Our history is being erased. With another human extermination on the horizon in China, Edwin challenges this with bravery.

The New Red Scare & Our 'Reality Czars'

The American Red Scare of the 1950s may be one of the most important — and most terrifying — events in our nation's history. It was a witch hunt — an all-out assault — on any American citizen deemed to be a threat simply because of their thoughts.
Led by Senator McCarthy, the House of Un-American Activities Committee destroyed lives. Mere accusations sometimes meant you were stripped of your job and your dignity. Sound familiar?

On Glenn TV tonight, Glenn Beck outlines how we've gone from pursuing alleged communists to pursuing "right-wing extremists." But how are our new "reality czars" defining that? Is it Trump supporters, red-state Republicans, conspiracy-theorist "nut jobs"? Our new Red Scare is here, America. Are you on the list? Later, Donald Trump Jr. joins Glenn to call out this modern McCarthyism and explains the real reason for President Trump's second impeachment trial.

Watch the special in full below:

Only BlazeTV subscribers can watch the full, unedited interview with Donald Trump Jr., free from "reality czars." Glenn asks Don Jr. how President Trump is handling the impeachment, what happens to the conservative movement going forward, and whether it will be led by a Trump.

Jewish Space Lasers & Deplatforming 'MAGA Media' | Ben Shapiro | Ep 96

Behold Ben Shapiro, the Great Wrecker of Libs himself. From the growing contempt for free speech to the fatal excesses of cancel culture and the forcefulness of so-called racial equity, Ben smashes claims that conservatives don't battle censorship. All of it is fueled by the Left's need for constant revolution and their habitual gaslighting. Seriously, the gaslighting is nonstop: At this very moment, makeshift fencing (aka a wall) surrounds the Capitol. Democrats used to hate walls and borders, but thousands of National Guardsmen occupy Washington, D.C., for unclear reasons, for an indefinite amount of time, and the Democrats are happy about it?

Ben also addresses some of the more "creative" conspiracy theories of Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, like Jewish space lasers. And what about the obsession to rid this "cancer" from Congress? Ben says it's all politics: "We're all old enough to remember [before] Marjorie Taylor Greene, it was Steve King, and when it was not Steve King and it was Christine O'Donnell, and when it was not Christine O'Donnell, it was Todd Akin. Meanwhile, I got Nancy Pelosi on the cover of a magazine with Ilhan Omar, and it's like, well, 'that's just the way things go' five minutes after she was about to censure her for her anti-Semitism." Ben ends the show on a strategy to help Democrats and tearful journalists at Politico stop treating conservatives as domestic enemies.
