Bill O’Reilly says there’s one part of Biden’s recent State of the Union speech that most others missed. In this clip, O’Reilly describes the specific moment during the SOTU when Biden revealed a MARXIST (and socialist) viewpoint. But it gets even worse, O’Reilly says, because Biden likely doesn’t even fully understand what he said: ‘It's just incoherent gibberish.’ Plus, O'Reilly tells Glenn his thoughts on the recent Nord Stream pipeline rumors and the brewing tension between Donald Trump and Ron DeSantis...

GLENN: Last night, I got a text from Mike Lee. It said, check my Twitter feed. So I did.
If false, slander. If true, war. And it was the story about how we may have blown up the -- the Nord Stream pipeline.
I wrote to them, right before I came on the air, today, and I said, you know, so what do I tell the people? And he said, I would tell your audience, we don't know whether or not this is true.
Loan author, writing on Substack, relying on a single source, isn't good.
But it's -- we have no confidence either way. Is it true? I don't know.
But if it's true, it's a real problem. Huge problem of epic proportions. Plus, who else might have done this. Who else had the capacity. Michael joining me tomorrow, to figure that out.
But I wanted to get Bill O'Reilly on, to see if he has an initial take.
Because I think this is all about the loss of the press and credibility. We don't know who to believe, and what to believe. Bill, welcome.
BILL: Beck, I'm sending you some free stuff, before we get into this, on team normal.
Are on team normal?
GLENN: I don't know what team normal is. If you're the head of team normal, I think you might want to read --
BILL: I'm sending it to you, anyway. So it's team normal, versus team crazy.
GLENN: Yeah. Yeah.
BILL: If you listen to Governor Huckabee Sander's speech. So I'm on team normal. I know that's been disputed.
GLENN: Yes. Yes.
BILL: But on BillO'Reilly.com, we have the hats and the shirts. We got everything, bumper stickers.
And if you want to be on team normal.
All right? And I think you do, Beck.
GLENN: I would like a team -- do you sell the team crazy?
No. We don't want to promote the team crazy.
GLENN: Well, you know, I could just wear it once in a while, as a dad, around the house. You know what I mean?
BILL: All right.
Now, Seymour Hersh, who wrote this story on Substack about the pipeline is a loon. Okay?
Lost his mind about, I don't know, 30 years ago, in my opinion, my humble opinion. It's subjective analysis of Mr. Hersh. Did good work in Vietnam. But after that, it was just crazy time.
GLENN: Yeah. He has come up with a lot of things.
And not usually verifiable.
BILL: Never born out.
So he loves -- he loves this. Knowing the Biden administration, the way I do. I think it's almost impossible, that Joe Biden would order a -- an attack, on the Nord Stream pipeline.
He just doesn't have that kind of grit.
And that could start a world war with nukes.
BILL: So I would say to Senator Lee, with respect, I don't believe the story as it stands right now.
GLENN: Well, he said -- in all fairness, that's what he said. I don't believe it. But I can't dismiss it either.
BILL: Well, I can't dismiss Martians from Venus.
GLENN: Well, that would be -- what are they tourists on Venus? Why would Martians be on Venus?
BILL: You can go this conspiracy route all day long, but I'm a fact-based guy. And the only people really watching this -- you'll never get any reporting out of Russia, that's worth anything.
You can't believe anything they say. But the Swedes -- Olaf and the Swedes.
GLENN: Yeah. Right.
BILL: And that group over there. Yeah. They're watching it.
BILL: So at this pint, I think this isn't really, you know, something that Americans should be concerned about.
Do you want to get into the State of the Union? Because I have one thing that everybody missed, Beck.
GLENN: Yeah. I do. But I want to take this conversation one step further.
BILL: Sure. The problem with this story, Bill. We have been lied to so many times, by our administration.
By our media. That I find myself in a position, to where I can't make a call on a few things. Like this.
I'm like, I don't think we did that. But if we did do that, it would be really horrible.
But I don't think we could ever prove it. Because no one is a journalist anymore. Nobody is --
BILL: Even if you were a journalist -- I am a journalist, and I can scuba dive. If you want to put me in a little --
GLENN: Right. Oh, I would love to put you in a little bell.
BILL: I know you would, Beck. Jealous. Jealous guy.
Anyway, but it's impossible. You just can't get to that kind of a story.
GLENN: All right.
So do you believe we'll ever find out who blew it up.
Because somebody did.
BILL: No. Look, I don't know whether that is a physiological fact, that somebody did.
You're way under the water. You've got all kinds of combustibles going through the pipeline.
Certainly, it could have been some kind of malfunction. So I don't think I would go with sabotage and 100 percent at this point.
GLENN: I don't think the Swedes and Elsa, and her sister. And her sister were there. I believe they investigated, it was -- it was sabotage.
Okay. So tell me what we missed on the State of the Union.
BILL: Okay. And the guy in the Wall Street Journal, just ripped off my analysis. Henninger is his name today.
So right after the State of the Union, I did instant analysis.
BILL: On radio and television. That's what I do for a living.
And I said, look, did you not pick up the living wage comment? And you're an expert at this. At the end of it, he's going, everybody should be in a union. Because everybody should have a living wage, everybody should have health care -- okay. The usual.
A living wage, okay? Is a Marxist tenet.
BILL: That means the government sets everybody's salary. Nobody -- no corporation, company, is going to set a living wage. So I brought it to Cuomo last night. I did a hit with him, on Wednesday, on news nation. Which you should watch. Just because you'll be entertained, Beck.
And I said to him, hey. Did you catch this
And, of course, he said no. But then he started to do this little dance of, well, he meant minimum wage. I said, no, he didn't.
We minimum wage laws. He meant living wage. So fast forward to this morning, I open the Wall Street Journal, which is worth reading on its editorial's page side.
And there he's going, oh! Biden has come out of the closet as a socialist.
And that's true. But here's the real tragic part: Biden doesn't even know what a living wage means.
BILL: He doesn't even know it's part of the Karl Marx program. He didn't write that speech.
He went over it 15 times, and he delivered it pretty well. Got to be honest.
He had good energy. Didn't look befuddled.
GLENN: He had good energy.
BILL: That delivery, to what he usually does -- stammers around with. That was light years better. But he didn't write any of it, and unlike Trump and Obama, they didn't write either.
But they edited heavily, both of them.
I don't know whether Biden -- but I doubt that he's sitting there with a sharpie, editing. I doubt it. He does what he's told to do by Susan Rice.
GLENN: Well, the New York Times did a whole story on this, and said he does edit. And he's looking for --
BILL: How do they know?
GLENN: Because they had several insiders of the White House, Bill.
BILL: Oh, insiders!
GLENN: And they said, he edits, and he marks it up, where he needs to pause, and he looks for -- because he has a strong rule. No acronyms. And words that he think he might stutter, he takes those out.
BILL: Joe Biden does that, not him.
Listen, whenever you see anonymous sources, New York Times, forget it. Forget it.
GLENN: No. No.
BILL: Yeah. They want to make him look good. So an insider told me. I just can't even imagine him, with his concentration span being 18 seconds. All right?
Sitting there, with an hour and 12 minute speech going over it line by line. Now, what he does is read the teleprompter. And he reads it. And reads it. And reads it. And they have built in, in the teleprompter, pause. Stop. Smile.
GLENN: Right. Right.
Bill, let me -- let me ask you: He ad-libbed a few things, that apparently were not in the speech.
And one of those were his angry, angry response of, who wants to be President Xi in China.
And his -- he goes from like okay. To screaming flaming mad, in an instant.
BILL: That sounds like me.
BILL: Look, I'm not going to analyze his emotional capabilities. I mean, you've all -- he called some reporter a dog pony soldier or something.
I mean, it's just incoherent gibberish.
And so I don't even bother with that.
What really, really disturbs me, and this is not in the forefront of the American people's mind. They're calling him a liar.
He's a liar, he's this, he's that. He's delusional, Beck. He lives in a world of delusion.
He thinks he's doing a good job with the economy. He believes that he is a deficit cost cutter. He believes this stuff.
Okay? And it's so far from reality. But we all know, older people, who you go in and then there they are.
And it's the same syndrome.
And run for office again?
This man is going downhill faster than Lindsey Vonn.
You think this is going to get better with him?
GLENN: No. No.
BILL: I mean, I'm just sitting there going request, this country, if this man wins another four-year term.
This country is going to be damaged beyond repair.
We can repair it now.
GLENN: I have about 70 seconds.
I have to ask you about the spat between Donald Trump and -- and Ron DeSantis.
What is Trump doing?
Stop with this -- you know --
BILL: I agree 100 percent.
I agree -- it's a terrible tactic. He doesn't need to do.
GLENN: He doesn't. He doesn't.
Yeah. If he would just -- yeah. Be president.
BILL: It's all about discipline with him. You know that. It's emotion and discipline.
He's going to have a tough time, you know, getting that nomination, unless he changes course fairly quickly.
