'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.


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...

​Facebook BOYCOTT: Major corporations demand MORE social media censorship

A Facebook anti-hate campaign called "Stop Hate for Profit" is gaining momentum, leading large companies like Patagonia, North Face, REI, and Ben & Jerry's to pull advertising revenue if Facebook doesn't do more to "stop the spread of hateful lies and dangerous propaganda on its platform."

But, what is considered "hateful"? It's anything that goes against the mob, and they won't stop with Facebook. Any voices that speak out against the progressive narrative will soon be censored and silenced. The more this campaign grows, the more our freedom of speech diminishes.

On his TV show Wednesday night, Glenn revealed where Black Lives Matter gets its considerable funding, and the dark money trail leading to a cast of familiar progressive characters.

Shortly after this program aired, one of the organizations, Thousand Currents, took down their board of directors page, which featured one of these characters.

Michael Rectenwald, a guest on Glenn's show, pointed out the suspicious change on Twitter.


Fortunately, the internet is forever, so it is still possible to view the board of directors page by looking at a web archive from the WayBack Machine. Here's a screenshot:

Do you recognize your country anymore?

Me neither.

Not only is history being made, it's being rewritten and our history is being lost to Marxist revolutionaries as statues are toppled and Merriam-Webster changes our language. Does this passage from George Orwell's 1984 seem eerily similar to our day?:

"Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right." 1984, George Orwell

In the digital age, book burning is unnecessary. "Inappropriate" material just evaporates into the ether with a simple keystroke. The days I've been warning about for years are finally upon us and we need to be able to call on the wisdom of our Founding Fathers and other brilliant patriots and if you are relying on digital copies, you could find yourself out of luck.

Knowledge truly is power and we are now in the time where we need all the resources we can get, so I put together this list of the books you HAVE to have in your personal libraries. Along with these selections, I earnestly advise that you keep a journal. Your personal history is powerful and being able to preserve your thoughts and feelings for your posterity to learn from is an invaluable addition to any library.

I'd also suggest you look into Mercury One's "Leadership Training Program," the tools learned will be invaluable as you are able to inspect and learn from original sources as well as being taught by passionate historians. Stay tuned on this front, we have some exciting announcements coming soon.

You ARE the audience that will save the Republic and you have been prepared over the years for the role you need to play. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for being the people that Alexis de Tocqueville wrote about. America is good because it's people are good.

Keep up the good fight and God bless!

The 5000 Year Leap, by W. Cleon Skousen ​

The nation the Founders built is now in the throes of a political, economic, social, and spiritual crisis that has driven many to an almost frantic search for modern solutions. The truth is that the solutions have been available for a long time -- in the writings of our Founding Fathers -- carefully set forth in this timely book.

In The 5000 Year Leap: A Miracle That Changed the World, Discover the 28 Principles of Freedom our Founding Fathers said must be understood and perpetuated by every people who desire peace, prosperity, and freedom. Learn how adherence to these beliefs during the past 200 years has brought about more progress than was made in the previous 5000 years. These 28 Principles include The Genius of Natural Law, Virtuous and Moral Leaders, Equal Rights--Not Equal Things, and Avoiding the Burden of Debt.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck revealed what no one else is willing to talk about for fear of being labeled a "racist" or "conspiracy theorist." Glenn dug deep into Black Lives Matter's finance books to expose where the organization gets its considerable funding, and where the money is actually being funneled. It's a dark money trail that leads to a cast of familiar progressive characters.

Ex-Marxist professor and author of "Beyond Woke," Michael Rectenwald, joined the show to uncover the violent origins of some of the leadership financially connected to Black Lives Matter.
