'Where's the Hammer?': MSNBC Host Apologizes After Leaked On-Camera Meltdown

Wondering why the name of this MSNBC anchor has been trending?

Lawrence O’Donnell was furious in around 8 minutes of footage obtained by Mediaite. The anchor seems to have had a series of meltdowns that were captured on video last month and leaked online Wednesday.

“STOP THE HAMMERING UP THERE. WHO’S GOT A HAMMER?” O’Donnell can be heard shouting in the clip. “WHERE IS IT? WHERE’S THE HAMMER?”

Glenn Beck, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere tried to extrapolate some lessons from O’Donnell’s on-camera crisis on Thursday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program.”

“So before they end the world on the 23rd, we get to find out that Lawrence O’Donnell is still on the air,” Stu joked. “Both signs from God.”

They listened to part of the clip, which definitely had distinct sounds of hammers being used.

Glenn didn’t think Pat would have been able to handle the racket either.

“You would have lost your mind,” he said.

O’Donnell has since apologized for losing it in the studio, tweeting that “a better person would’ve had a better reaction to technical difficulties.”

GLENN: I will tell you that the Lawrence O'Donnell show, you know, sometimes -- it's like -- I think God allows, you know, people saying, if there is God, how come he allows war? Because we need to learn geography.

STU: Right. That's not --

PAT: Otherwise, no one would know where Iraq is. We had to attack it to find out.

GLENN: North Korea. You're like, I don't know. It's around that area. So it teaches you. The same thing with the hammering. That hammering incident was just God's way of saying, "Lawrence O'Donnell still exists."

STU: Oh.

PAT: Okay. All right. Yeah.

GLENN: We're like, huh, that show is still on the air.

PAT: Huh. And actually, I didn't know that. I honestly didn't know it..

STU: I didn't, to be honest.

PAT: So...

STU: That's interesting. Before they end the world on the 23rd, we get to find out that Lawrence O'Donnell is still on the air.

GLENN: Yes. Yes.

STU: Both signs from God.

GLENN: Yes. Sign in heaven: Stop the hammering!

STU: Do we have actually the hammering sound, Sarah? Because I haven't --

PAT: Because I could not hear the hammering sound.

GLENN: Oh, yes, you can. Then you heard an edited version.

STU: Okay. Yeah, probably.

GLENN: It's like crazy.

PAT: Did you hear it too?

GLENN: Pat, it would have made you -- you would have lost your mind.

PAT: You would have been pissed?

GLENN: You would have lost your mind.

STU: Let's listen to it. Listen.

(hammering)

PAT: Okay, yeah.

STU: That's really --

PAT: Definitely. Definitely.

GLENN: Okay. He's in an interview.

PAT: Yeah. I'd be mad. I'd --

VOICE: Is Donald Trump going to be called to testify --

GLENN: He's asking a -- so he's in the middle of -- you couldn't -- you'd lose your mind.

VOICE: Stop the hammering.

GLENN: You'd lose your mind.

PAT: That just shows you how inconsequential Lawrence O'Donnell's show is and MSNBC is, doesn't it? Because how does a major television network allow that to happen in the middle of a show?

STU: It is rare. However, these things do occur. Like -- and everybody gets pissed off at work from time to time. The idea that you're on camera winds up happening. It does happen. I've seen Glenn lose his mind before. We've probably all at some point --

PAT: Bill O'Reilly, famously.

STU: Yeah. And I don't know that I've ever lost my mind like Lawrence O'Donnell, or I've ever seen Glenn lose his mind like that. However, you have your moments of real frustration. And you're on camera.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: However, what is interesting, usually those things only get leaked when the staff does not like you.

GLENN: Oh, yeah.

PAT: Right.

STU: I mean, so Lawrence, you wondered how many times has this happened with Lawrence O'Donnell, or if the people in the control room don't really like him that much.

PAT: And they were fed up. And they were like, okay. Let's put this one out.

GLENN: Really? Really, Mr. Jerk face? Yeah, you're going to love this one. Because that's where it came from. That came from the control room. Somebody in the control room made a copy of that and then posted it.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: Luckily, I've been taking money from the studios and just funneling it to the control room for months, so they like me a lot. Even when I swear.

GLENN: Oh, man. They're ripping me off twice. Because I'm doing the same thing. Pat, are you doing that too?

PAT: I don't have any money to do that, so...

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.
