Glenn Beck got so frustrated with Republicans over Mississippi state Sen. Chris McDaniel’s (R) loss to incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) in the primary runoff election for U.S. Senate that he got up in the middle of his radio program and walked outside to shoot a rifle.

Beck, who was broadcasting his radio show from his ranch on Wednesday, posted a video of his little break on Instagram.

“Stress release on the ranch. That’s how we do it out west!” Beck said as he hands his rifle to somebody off camera and walks back inside.

On his radio broadcast, Beck went on a long rant about how establishment Republicans didn’t want McDaniel to get elected.

“They are more comfortable with the president’s policies than they are with Chris McDaniel!” Beck said. “That doesn’t make any sense!”
