#WerkPerks: 'The Walking Dead' Readies Jeffy for a Zombie Apocalypse

The squeaky wheel gets the oil. Or, in this case, the baseball bat. The folks from The Walking Dead sent mega fan Jeffy his own October surprise, revealed Monday on The Glenn Beck Program.

"He is a huge fan, as we all are, but somehow they're making a big deal out of Jeffy," Glenn said.

While the bat wasn't covered in blood and brains, as Jeffy would have preferred, it has equipped him to survive a zombie attack.

Watch below as Jeffy unpacks "Lucille" with a little help from Glenn and podcast friends Brad Staggs and Jason Buttrill.

Season 7 of The Walking Dead Premieres this weekend on AMC.

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors:

Jeffy got a box over the weekend.

JEFFY: I did.

GLENN: He is a huge fan of -- as we all are, but somehow, they're making a big deal out of Jeffy.

JEFFY: Hey, Walking Dead contacted me and said, "Hey, we would like to send you a gift. And we would like to send you a gift that even fans can't buy. Just a specific gift for you." At my Twitter feed. @JeffyMRA.

GLENN: Please be a tube of rat poisoning.

JEFFY: And I said, "Well, if you really want to, sure, go ahead, you can send me a gift."

GLENN: Yeah. So they sent him something. Not even a note to us.

JEFFY: Sent me something. Season premiere this coming Sunday on AMC. Now, I -- we've had a lot of guesses on what it could be.

GLENN: I know. I think it's a baseball bat.

JEFFY: I think so too. I think it's Negan's bat, but it's really heavy.

PAT: I mean, that would be cool, if it's Negan's bat.

GLENN: It's really heavy. I think it's in glass case.

JEFFY: It's really heavy.

STU: Oh, Styrofoam.

JEFFY: Get Styrofoam everywhere.

STU: At this.

GLENN: Oh.

PAT: Oh.

GLENN: It's a big wood crate inside. So that explains the weight.

STU: Fastened to the cardboard.

JEFFY: Is it? Oh.

GLENN: It's a big wooden case.

(chuckling)

GLENN: Okay. Now you can open it up.

JEFFY: I'll let you open the latch. Go ahead.

PAT: Wow. I don't think it's a baseball --

JEFFY: Yes, it is.

PAT: Is it a baseball -- it is!

STU: Oh!

PAT: It is!

GLENN: Look, it even says -- Jeff, this is Lucille. She is awesome.

PAT: Oh, wow. Look at that. That is pretty cool.

GLENN: Wow.

JEFFY: Come on, baby.

GLENN: That is great.

JEFFY: No blood and brains on it though.

GLENN: You expected it.

JEFFY: I know.

GLENN: You expected it. He thought it would be in lucite with blood and brains on it.

JEFFY: That is really cool.

GLENN: I am definitely using this, man. Look at this, it's all prop because it's all plastic. It's all rubber.

PAT: Yeah, so it can't really hurt anybody. Well, if you hit somebody in the head with this baseball bat --

JEFFY: It's still going to hurt.

PAT: -- it's still going to hurt. Yeah.

GLENN: But it's never been used before, Jeffy, there's no blood on it.

JEFFY: I know. Very disappointing. Very disappointing.

GLENN: So it starts this weekend?

PAT: That's pretty cool.

JEFFY: It starts this weekend. Of course, Brad Staggs and Jason Buttrell are here because they joined me on the podcast that we do each week, talking Walking Dead.

GLENN: I don't know if I can handle this year. Are you with me on this?

JEFFY: Oh, it's going to be good.

PAT: I definitely am. I don't know if I can do it. Because it's going to be painful to watch.

GLENN: Yeah, because he is -- Negan is -- you've read the series.

JEFFY: I'm up on a lot of what's coming up, yeah. I haven't read every comic book, yeah. But I know a little bit of what's coming in the future, yeah.

GLENN: And it's really bad.

JEFFY: They've tried to stay pretty close to the comic book.

GLENN: This makes the Governor look --

JEFFY: Oh, the Governor is grandma.

GLENN: Wow. I don't know if I can take that.

JEFFY: Yeah. Plus, the season premiere, we're going to find out. I mean, somebody will pass on to --

PAT: Somebody is obviously dead.

JEFFY: Somebody is going to die.

PAT: Just got beaten to death with a baseball bat --

GLENN: Pat, I don't know about you, but I think I could take it and promote it for something cooler than the baseball bat. Don't you?

PAT: Oh, yeah. Yeah.

GLENN: Yeah. I could take it. Promote it --

PAT: I think so.

JEFFY: What do you mean?

GLENN: For something cooler than, you know, Jeffy's baseball bat. I don't care what it is, it just has to be cooler than his.

PAT: Yeah.

GLENN: Really, I don't care what it is. I'll never look at it. I just need to have something cooler than what Jeffy has.

JEFFY: Well, you can try.

GLENN: Walking Dead premieres next Sunday.

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:
