'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...

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
