MSNBC Libtalker Has Psychotic Meltdown With Caller
Schultz Outburst Could Mark New Low For Libtalk
For some time, we've been tracking the increasingly-unstable nature of MSNBC libtalker Ed Schultz, particularly during his daily syndicated radio program.
It's quite nearly a full time job: this year alone, he's advocated ripping out Dick Cheney's heart, pushed ballot-stuffing in Massachusetts and called for "socialism" in American broadcasting via a federal government takeover.
And yet with all of that, a deranged meltdown heard during yesterday's show may actually top it all.
Listen to this caught-on-tape clip as Schultz absolutely loses his mind while the caller remains remarkably calm:
CALLER (51:46): My reason for being with the tea party is is this whole health care stuff. I remember hearing President Obama talking about how it was going to be open and transparent, it was going to be on C-SPAN, we were going to know what's in the bill and that's just not the way it worked.
SCHULTZ: Oh, you're an idiot, Jason.
CALLER: How am I an idiot?
SCHULTZ: Because everything you just said is wrong! MY GOD, I'M LOSING MY COOL! I'M SORRY, I'm sorry, I'm acting like this right now! My God, he had an open meeting! It was all over the Internet! Did you pick up the damn bill and read it?! YES OR NOT?!
CALLER: Did you read the bill?
SCHULTZ: YES, I READ TWO FREAKIN' BILLS!
CALLER: You read the bill ...
SCHULTZ: My God! I cannot (crosstalk), everything you just said to me is false! Everything, everything you just said to me is false! Get this idiot off my radio show! My God, I mean, sooner or later you gotta call these people out! President Obama couldn't have been any more transparent!
He couldn't have been any more open! He brought these nitwit Republicans in for a televised (pause) shindig at the Blair House. Or did you miss that?
God, go pick up your gun and march if it makes you feel better because you're too stupid to read!
The irony: Schultz regularly features a segment on his MSNBC show called "Psycho Talk", where he accuses opponents of being deranged. Takes one to know one, Ed.
