Glenn Beck So Frustrated With Cochran Win He Shot A Rifle During Radio Show

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!”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
