MSNBC is the best thing that ever happened to conservatism

As much as MSNBC may drive Glenn, Pat, and Stu crazy, there's no denying it's quite possibly one of the greatest things to ever happen to the conservative movement. Chris Matthews, in particular, makes some of the most nonsensical statements of all-time almost daily. If that doesn't expose the world (or their 10 viewers) to the idiocies of the left, what will?

For example, Chris Matthews' only argument against any criticism conservatives give President Obama is racism:

Don't like Obamacare? Chris Matthews thinks you're racist.

Don't like the way he's handling Libya? Chris Matthews thinks you're racist.

Don't want to pay hire taxes? Chris Matthews thinks you're racist.

Think unemployment numbers aren't accurate? You guessed it: Chris Matthews thinks you're racist.

Following a statement by Donald Trump on unemployment numbers, Chris Matthews made one of his most ridiculous statements yet:

"Everything he's done is clean as a whistle. He's never not only broken any law. He's never done anything wrong. The perfect father, the perfect husband, the perfect American. And all they do is trash the guy. And it's impossible for me to believe they would have said the same thing about a Walter Mondale or a Jimmy Carter or Bill Clinton. There's an ethnic piece to this…Trump says the president is, quote, monkeying with the unemployment numbers. It just keeps going on over and or again."

That must be it -- blatant racism. It can't be that the unemployment numbers are worth taking a better look at, or that, when reporting on them, the media should take into consideration the declining number of people included in the participation rate. It's just racism.

Chris Matthews, of course, hasn't bothered to site any facts that support his claims of racism, aside from the phrase "monkeying the numbers." You'll also notice he hasn't taken a better look at the numbers. He isolates and ridicules -- classic Saul Alinksy.

Matthews was joined in this segment by Jonathan Alter, who made just as ridiculous of a claim about Trump's ridiculous stunt for the president to release his college transcripts.

"I think it's rank racism," Alter claimed. "You know, sometimes people on the right get very upset when people on the left charge racism but, you know, shuck and jive, that's like talking about watermelon, or, you know, talking about Jews are greedy or the Irish are drunk or whatever. These are racist tropes and we need to call them what they are. And I actually think ‑‑ at least implicitly Trump was playing on racism today with his ridiculous stunt demanding Obama's college transcripts."

In other words: when Republicans want to see Barack Obama's sealed college transcripts, it's racism; when the Democrats scrutinize George W. Bush's, it's just good politics.

Watch the full exchange here:

Stu noted that while the argument about the transcripts is ridiculous and not the path to an election victory, he highly doubts anyone thinks the president didn't get good grades.

"But beyond that I would bet you with almost ‑‑ outside of any of the candidates that we've seen recently over the past several elections, the most likely guy to have really good grades with annoyingly liberal college professors is Barack Obama. He said himself he was befriending the Marxist professors," Stu said. "Do you think this guy got bad grades? He didn't get bad grades."

But that's the storyline Matthews and friends are sticking to: that conservatives only want to see them because he's black and could only stay in school because of Affirmative Action.

Ridiculous.

There's absolutely nothing else that could be interesting in the transcripts, like who his teachers were or what classes he took -- it has to be racism.

It's the same argument, over and over again from MSNBC. But that's not how they see it. According to Chris Matthews, if you think they're repeating the same thing over and over again, you're "dead wrong and you're dangerous."

Or at least that's what we think he meant to say. Like the "brilliant" broadcaster that Chris Matthews is, this is what he actually said:

Matthews: "Anybody out there by the way, thinks we're for saying things that's over and over again, and if you think we're saying things, you're dead wrong and you're dangerous."

"MSNBC is the best that I think has ever happened to conservatives," Stu said after hearing that.

"I mean, seriously you could give them credit for at least 10 or 15 of the 65 seats in the last election. That's how much damage they do to the liberal movement. Continue. Stay on the air. Keep going, MSNBC, despite the fact that no one watches, just keep doing what you're doing."

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
