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?

THE GLENN BECK PODCAST

This Brit Has a Dire Warning for America | Douglas Murray | The Glenn Beck Podcast | Ep 89

The state of America is worse than we realize: The Left's obsession with rewriting history has ushered in guilt, fear, and a "silent majority." But British author Douglas Murray asks, "Why should the majority remain silent?" In his latest book, "The Madness of Crowds," Murray warns that something dark has overtaken Western society. And having viewed the American Left firsthand, he now warns that we're heading down the same path as much of Europe did – and leading the rest of the world with us. He and Glenn discuss what he learned from marching with Antifa, the dangers of focusing on race and eroding masculinity, and whether it's actually time to be more like France as even President Macron warns that we've gone too far. But ultimately, Murray stresses with cautious hope that it's always possible to return to truth.

Battleground Georgia: The Radical Democrats Who Will Transform America | Glenn TV

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda. As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Far-left elites are using COVID to ‘reset’ America to socialism

Both Governor Newsom (California) and Governor Whitmer (Michigan) currently are being challenged by their state courts and governments for tyrannical policies issued during the COVID pandemic. And that's GREAT news because the 'Great Reset' continues to be pushed by far-left elites around the world…and Biden's team is in full support. Glenn explains how the Great Reset — a plan issued by the World Economic Forum — aims to use our current pandemic as a means to an end; they'll use COVID as an excuse to push 'stakeholder capitalism,' something similar to the economic system used today in China or the one used in 1930s Germany. Listen, as Glenn explains the TERRIFYING details to their plan…
