Glenn Beck keeps getting weirder and freakier as time goes on and yet, he still gets a platform on Fox News. I'm sure Bill O'Reilly was glad to have him, but I wonder if he even expected this sort of loopy behavior from the King of Vicks Vapor Rub.

Glenn Beck's recent interview on Fox News saw the host pulling out a rifle and showing off a piece of Abraham Lincoln's bedsheet.

Nothing too surprising, we guess! On Monday night, Beck spoke to Bill O'Reilly abouthis new book "Miracles and Massacres" via satellite — and offered up his take on the untold stories of American history. Beck went on about how much he "hates" Thomas Edison, who he called a "dirtbag." At one point, he pulled out a rifle that he said was taken from the Wounded Knee Massacre, which he called a "buried" historical event.

The pièce de résistance, however, may have been Lincoln's bed sheet. Beck pulled it out at the end of the interview, telling O'Reilly, “You may have the book, I have the bed sheet."

Not only is he zonked out on his ego, but now he's attempting to rewrite history to sell some more merchandise to his rubes. He must worship that old P.T. Barnum adage which says, 'there's a sucker born every minute.'

Oh, and why was BillO so mute to this ridiculous routine on his own show? Well, here's what he had to say:

O’Reilly had no reaction to Beck holding the gun, instead praising him for his work.“So Beck is now the watchdog of history, along with me and [Brian] Kilmeade. We’re rolling, Beck!” O’Reilly said.

These two deserve each other.
