Glenn Beck Points And Laughs At MSNBC’s Contessa Brewer For ‘Economics Degree Question’

Glenn Beck and his radio crew couldn’t resist enjoying MSNBC’s Contessa Brewer squirm yesterday after a failed attempt to discredit the economic arguments of her guest, a Tea Party-influenced Republican Congressman. Beck summed up his description of Brewer as succinctly as possible: “what a dope!”

After playing the original clip, Beck and his crew rewarded the performance of Congressman Mo Brooks with hysterical laughter and a round of applause. Beck thought Brooks should have also asked where was Brewer’s economic degree so that then he could “start talking down to you now.” Yet one of Beck’s sidekicks had a more serious inquiry regarding Brewer, wondering, “this is not Keith Olbermann or Rachel Maddow, this is a news hour of their programming where this occurred. This is not an opinion hour.” Regardless if it was opinion or news, everybody (even The Daily Show which made Brewer’s flub their “Moment of Zen”) seemed to get a chuckle out of the exchange.

Watch the clip from The Glenn Beck Program below, and check out the original clip of Brewer’s question further below:
