Timing is everything --- especially when following the chairman of the Republican National Committee on Meet the Press. Glenn found himself in just such a precarious position Sunday morning.
"We're living in such a fantasy world where nothing makes sense anymore," Glenn said.
Chuck Todd, host of Meet the Press, asked Glenn what bothered him most about the interview with RNC chairman Reince Priebus.
"The whole thing did," Glenn said. "Both parties are so out of touch with the American people. Democrats, Republicans and Independents --- we all feel the same way," Glenn said.
Glenn mentioned three things that have many Americans feeling lost:
1. I don't belong to anything anymore; my country isn't the same.
2. Nobody is listening to me.
3. I don't have any levers that control my own life.
"You know that Reince Priebus knows better than what he just said," Glenn said.
Chuck Todd echoed Glenn's sentiments, describing what a reporter in Cleveland had told him.
"You have a lot of Republicans who will say one thing about Trump off the record and another on the record," Todd said. "Do you think that's gotta stop?"
Glenn emphatically agreed it has to stop.
"The problem is, in our society, that there's no authenticity. You can't trust anybody. You know they don't believe that. What was so frustrating about Reince is, I guess he's doing his job, but if doing you're job means that you're not being transparent then you've got to get another job, man, and quit that one.
Selling your soul to tow the party line won't change anything, and it won't build trust with American voters.
Glenn might have had a case of buyer's remorse following the interview, posting this message to Facebook:
Started my morning losing my mind on meet the press. I had a plan. Focus. Then they spoke to politicians just before me. Oof.
Let's just say, it wasn't my finest moment.
Off to church now. I need it.
