Lawrence O’Donnell served a damaging blow to MSNBC after he was caught on leaked video losing his mind. The incident took place after what appears to be issues with his earpiece, “hammering” and other distractions that were going on as he was preparing another one of his negative spins on President Donald J. Trump.
See the viral video below:
The tirade began as O’Donnell chastised his staff with profanity-laced rude comments due to some kind of distractions going on and caught by his earpiece. It builds up to about halfway through the video, when he goes absolutely ballistic, gets out of his seat and shouts for someone to go “Stop the hammering!”
“STOP THE HAMMERING UP THERE. WHO’S GOT A HAMMER? WHERE IS IT? WHERE’S THE HAMMER? GO UP ON THE OTHER FLOOR. SOMEBODY GO UP THERE AND STOP THE HAMMERING. STOP THE HAMMERING. I’LL GO DOWN TO THE GODDAMNED FLOOR MYSELF AND STOP IT, KEEP THE GODDAMNED COMMERCIAL BREAK GOING. CALL F***ING PHIL GRIFFIN, I DON’T CARE WHO THE F*** YOU HAVE TO CALL. STOP THE HAMMERING. EMPTY OUT THE GODDAMNED CONTROL ROOM AND FIND OUT WHERE THIS IS GOING ON.”
O’Donnell took to Twitter to apologize.
A better anchorman and a better person would've had a better reaction to technical difficulties. I'm sorry.
