texas. you've been a long time critic of donald trump despite being a conservative. tell us why you are not going to vote for trump and about his prospects for winning the election 82 days from now. >> anything can happen in this election and i've been proven wrong a lot. i didn't think he'd get the nomination. let me start with this. you said despite me being voting. it is precisely because i'm a constitutional conservative that i can't vote for donald trump. i am not anybody but that person. i don't think that is the kind of vision we need for america. i think donald trump is a national pop pew list. i think he has socialist leanings. he has far more socialist than
coverage. he is a progressive. a new york progressive with socialist leanings and an absolute pop pew list national list. and that is a dangerous combination. whenever you find those mixed in history, you find bad things come of it. >> dana: another person you are not going to be voting for is hillary clinton as well. you've written this progressives among others lie to the public. you talk about how hillary clinton does not want to fix income inequality in this country. why? >> because it takes away the ability to be in charge. it's a great progressive trick. and i want you to do me a favor because i noticed you brought
talk about somebody else hillary clinton and brought the book up. look at the cover of the book and tell me whose faces are on the cards? >> those are your mt. rush mother. >> the point of the book is not a liberal take down. i can live next to liberals my whole life. i have no i have a problem with progressives and those are the people that want to control your life and make every decision for you and have a huge government system that never ever works. and so this is a disease that was started by the republicans and the republicans are playing right into it. you want to talk about gun control. the president that was the most
off the streets was not a democrat, it was richard nixon. the guy who took us off the gold standard which was one of the main principles of the early progressive movement was richard nixon. it is not a liberal disease, it is a disease that runs with people who want to control people's lives and that is in both parties. that is the split that is happening now. i think the republicans have spli trump is he is a progressive and he wants that extra control. he's for giant barriers on the economy in trade barriers which is a bad idea. it started the great depression. and kept us in the great depression for a long time. it is a progressive idea and national list idea.
liars. you can get a copy of it now. glenn beck, thank you for joining us today. we appreciate it. >> kim: donald trump is getting an intelligence briefing and his running mate is going to be here in henderson. looking at the other end of the political aisle right now and that is our hugger in chief, vice president biden. jeanie most reports. >> there are hugs where you throw up your arms and go for it and then there are hugs tha joe biden wouldn't let hillary go as they met on the tarmac. about four seconds into the hug they semidisengaged. nothing to see here, right? wrong, because the vice president wouldn't unhand hillary for almost 16 seconds. >> notice how many times she tries to tap out. no, he's still holding on.
let go. >> this latest awkward hug would not have been micro analyzed if it were not for all the other handy biden moments. critics collect them. times when he rearranges a young girls hair and whispers in her hair and rearranges some more. the parents are right there as he leans in for a kis talker. he does it to the president. perhaps his most famous hands on moment came when he put his hands on the wife of defense secretary ash carter. conservatives -- >> this is the creepiest thing. >> so did some liberals. you appear to smell her hair.
