CHRIS CUOMO (CO-HOST): There's this other thing that I don't think squares that accurately with my reporting, which is this idea of calling [Steve] Bannon an “outsider.” Even on this network, you keep hearing, “Well, you've got the insider in Reince Priebus, and you got the outsider in Bannon.” Bannon is not an outsider. You just heard Glenn Beck say he's a nightmare. It seems like there's exaggeration in two different directions. 

ALISYN CAMEROTA (CO-HOST): The cool-headed Glenn Beck is now weighing in.


CUOMO: Glenn Beck is an outsider, right? He is an ideologue who has gone against his own party. He is saying this guy is something totally outside the sphere of normal. I don't get -- it's like, this reporting that, “Wow, they're really killing each other in there.” Not true. This idea that he's just a regular outsider so it's like a typical balance of influences. Not true. 

DANA BASH: There's nothing typical here. Put that out there.

AVALON: There's nothing normal about this election or this transition.
