Did MSNBC manage to make the worst political point in history?

It's a well known fact that politicians aren't usually very funny. Remember what happened when Romney tried to crack a birther joke? Epic fail. But you know what's even worse than a politician trying to be funny? The unbelievable reactions from the talking heads in the mainstream media - and nothing gets worse than MSNBC. Even if you can't count on MSNBC to report on the election in a way that delivers anything remotely to the truth, you can always count on their team to uncomfortable squirm on live television as they invent attacks on conservatives and do anything they can to protect President Obama.

Last night, Mitch McConnell joked, "For four years, Barack Obama has been running from the nation's problems. He hasn't been working to earn reelection. He's been working to earn a spot on the PGA tour."

Not exactly a knee-slapper, but clearly he's saying Obama has been busy playing golf rather than actually fixing anything in America.

And what was MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell's enlightened response?

"We know exactly what he's trying to do there.  He's trying to align Tiger Woods and surely, you know, the lifestyle of Tiger Woods with Barack Obama, obviously nothing could be further from the truth.  They find every way they possibly can," O'Donnell told Martin Bashir.

So McConnell's joke about playing too much golf was actually a coded message to link philandering golf pro Tiger Woods to Barack Obama?

"Now here's a guy who was one of the writers for the West Wing.  So he can make cogent argument," Glenn said.

"And it's almost a weak joke for McConnell.  It's like, 'He just plays a lot of golf.' It's just a way of saying, this guy's barely paying attention, he's playing golf all the time.  It's such a basic joke, it's so basic and so obvious what he's actually doing, McConnell, he's pointing out that the guy plays golf all the time," Stu added.

Glenn added, "They are so desperate that they think that the average American will go, 'Oh, yeah, you know what?  He was going for the Tiger Woods.  He was trying to say that, what, that Barack Obama is hooking up with women?'"

What Bashir pushed back on his analysis, O'Donnell had the gall to double down!

"Martin, there are many, many, many rhetorical choices you can make at any point in any speech to make whatever point you want to make," he said. "If you wanted to make the point you just suggested, and I think he does want to make that point, they had a menu of a minimum of ten different kinds of images that they could have raised, and I promise you the speechwriters went through rejecting three or four before they landed on that one.  That's the one they want, for a very deliberate reason.  There's ‑‑ these people reach for every single possible racial double entendre they can possibly find."

Yes, not only was McConnell trying to connect Obama to Tiger's promiscuity, he is also trying to make it all about race! This is the kind of political analysis you can only get on MSNBC!

"They're done. This is the National Broadcasting Company. They're done on so many fronts," Glenn said.

Protests following the fatal police shooting of Walter Wallace Jr quickly devolved into violence, rioting, and looting in Philadelphia, and BlazeTV's Elijah Schaffer was there to document what the mainstream media won't. But while filming the carnage inside a Five Below on Tuesday, Elijah was surrounded and attacked by looters.

Elijah joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to detail his experience and to explain why mainstream media efforts to downplay the violence just show that independent media has never been more important.

"Unfortunately, [the attack] escalated from one person to about a dozen very quickly," Elijah explained. "I'm actually really happy to be alive. Because in that same shopping center, right there, there was a 15-year-old girl who was shot, according to reports. And I heard multiple gunshots throughout the night. Another individual is reported to have heard a gunshot as well, so we try to confirm. I watched people get pummeled beyond belief."

Glenn asked Elijah to respond to mainstream media claims that conservatives are exaggerating the looting and violence in Philadelphia.

"It's so funny to hear people that aren't there try to counter what we're reporting," Elijah replied.

In the final days before the 2020 election, President Donald Trump is gaining among black voters, particularly men, because his record of accomplishments "speaks for itself" and the "façade" that President Trump is a racist "just doesn't ring true," argued sports columnist Jason Whitlock on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday.

Jason, who recently interviewed the president at the White House for OutKick.com, shared his thoughts on why he believes many black Americans — notably celebrities such as Kanye West, Ice Cube, and 50 Cent — are breaking from the "façade" that President Trump is a "flaming racist."

"I really believe the facts are starting to speak for themselves, and that Donald Trump's record of accomplishments, particularly as it relates to African Americans, speaks for itself," Jason told Glenn. "He actually has a record to stand on, unlike even Barack Obama. When [Obama] was president, I don't think he had much of a record to stand on, in terms of, 'Hey, what did he actually deliver for African Americans?' President Trump has things he can stand on and, you know, beyond that I think black people understand when he starts talking about black unemployment rate. And America's unemployment rate. And then, when you add in for black men, the façade we've been putting on [President Trump] … you know, this whole thing that he's some flaming racist, it just doesn't ring true."

Jason suggested that Trump's fearlessness, unabashed masculinity, and record of keeping his promises resonates with men in the black community. He also weighed in on how media and social media's bias plays a huge role in convincing people to hate President Trump while ignoring Antifa and others on the Left.

"I keep explaining to people, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, they're some of the most secular places on earth. And we've reduced everyone to a tweet, that we disagree with," he added.

Megyn Kelly is not happy about the "disgusting" media coverage of President Donald Trump, specifically pointing to Lesley Stahl's "60 Minutes" interview on CBS Sunday.

On the radio program, Megyn told Glenn Beck the media has become so blinded by the "Trump Derangement Syndrome" that they've lost their own credibility — and now they can't get it back.

"It's disgusting. It's stomach-turning," Megyn said of the media's coverage of the president. "But it's just a continuation of what we've seen over the past couple of years. Their 'Trump Derangement Syndrome' has blinded them to what they're doing to their own credibility. They can't get it back. It's too late. They've already sacrificed it. And now no one is listening to them other than the hard partisans for whom they craft their news."

Megyn also discussed how she would have covered the recent stories about Hunter and Joe Biden's alleged corruption. Watch the video below to catch more of the conversation:
