See the bizarre messages Ed Schultz tweeted - and then deleted - to a Blaze staffer at 1:33am

MSNBC host Ed Schultz may not have a lot of viewers, but he does have a decent amount of Twitter followers. TheBlaze's head writer Dan Andros writes for a very successful television show, but he doesn’t have a particularly large following on the social network. That didn’t stop Schultz, however, from engaging in a bizarre and one-sided Twitter exchange with Dan.

After writing a blog post Wednesday night for TheBlaze.com chronicling his conversation with The Ed Show host, Dan joined the radio program this morning to share his experience. By the time Dan got through explaining the convoluted timeline that included tweets, direct messages, and deletions, Glenn could not help but feel sorry for Schultz.

“Dan is the head writer for the TV show. He's been with me, I don't even know how long. He’s been with us since 2000,” Glenn said. “So, Dan, you apparently had some reason to have contact with Ed Schultz?”

As Dan explained, the whole thing started when Schultz tweeted out a tease for his television show on Tuesday at 10:40am CT.

At 10:45am CT, Dan responded to the tweet.

The link in Dan’s tweet is a story from liberal radio host Randi Rhodes, who explained how the Democratic Party paid to launch the Ed Schultz radio program show nationally.

Apparently perturbed by the content of Dan’s tweet, Schultz quickly responded with what he probably intended to be a zinger. In reality, it proves he was interested enough to actually scope out Dan’s profile and figure out where he works.

“I just kind of laughed,” Dan said of Schultz’s response. “So I just tweeted back – I was just being playful, I've got big Ed on the line – so I tweeted back, ‘You got me there, Ed.’ I linked to the Forbes article, which notes that I'm working for one of the powerful celebrities on the planet.”

Perhaps realizing it probably wasn’t the best idea to have corresponded with Dan, Shultz deleted the Twitter exchange at some point during the day.

And that’s when things got really weird.

“So nothing happens after that, the rest of the day. I figured it would end there,” Dan said. “Before I go to bed, I check the Twitter one more time, and I get another notification. This is some 10, 12 hours after the first interaction we had. And it says, ‘Ed Schultz has now followed you.’”

What Dan soon realized, however, was this was all part of a larger plan for Schultz to be able to communicate with him privately.

“I realized why he followed me – because he doesn't actually follow many people on Twitter,” Dan continued. “On Twitter, you have to follow someone to send them a direct message.”

When Dan arrived at the office Wednesday morning, he went through his emails and found notifications that Schultz had sent him not one, but two direct messages at 1:33am and 1:35am respectively. Even stranger? He subsequently deleted them.

While Glenn tried to defend the early hour of Schultz messages, Dan, Pat, and Stu weren’t buying it.

“I send messages at 3 o'clock in the morning,” Glenn said.

“To competing networks? To lowly writers at competing networks,” Stu asked exasperatedly. “You email people you work with at 1:30 in the morning. And 1:30 in the morning is just part of it. he fact that he is waking up to try to get back at Dan is unbelievable.”

As Dan explained, he never would have known Schultz direct messaged him had he not seen the notifications in his inbox. Schultz clearly thought better of what he had said and attempted to delete the evidence before Dan could see it. Unfortunately, he failed.

While Stu and Pat certainly got a bit of pleasure out the whole bizarre incident, Glenn found the whole thing sad and pathetic.

“So you guys are finding this entertaining. I'm finding this more and more sad,” Glenn said. “In a psychological way… I mean what makes a man, besides rage, write something like that and then delete it? I mean, it's really sad.”

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.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
