Appearing on Glenn Beck's show on TheBlaze TV Thursday, Penn Jillette revealed that MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell actually wants to meet Beck. If you can believe it, O'Donnell also reportedly told Jillette he and Beck have a lot in common.
After confirming he is "very good" friends with O'Donnell, Jillette told Beck the MSNBC host "sends his best" to him.

"I had supper with him in L.A.-- and I'm probably violating a huge trust of his. Let me think carefully about what I say here," Jillette said, before making the big reveal. "[O'Donnell] said, you know, 'I would love to sit down with Glenn Beck and talk privately.' He said, 'We have a lot in common.' And he went on and on like that, then said, 'but you know, with our jobs and where we are it will probably never happen.'"
Beck then explained that too often in the media it really is all about "a job" and ratings, not about honestly discussing the issues. He didn't get around to extending an invitation to O'Donnell.
