They say you shouldnt bite the hand feeds you, but that isnt stopping MSNBCs The Last Word host Lawrence ODonnell.
In a brazen display of political loyalty trumping company loyalty, ODonnell took to airwaves on his Thursday night program to suggest NBC Celebrity Apprentice host and potential 2012 GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump is on his birther crusade in order to bolster his shows ratings.
ODonnell explained to his guest, Washington Post columnist Jonathan Capehart, that since Trump has been making the media rounds discussing the birth certificate of President Barack Obama, there has been a jump in his NBC shows ratings.
Jonathan, I want you to take a look at the ratings chart for Donald Trumps NBC show Celebrity Apprentice, ODonnell said. It starts off below the 8 million-mark. It also starts off very low in the demo, in the audience 18 to 49, to 2.8. As it gets crazier, it goes straight up. Hes now above a 3 in the demo which is the number NBC cares about the most. Hes at a 3.1. He was at a 3.0 the week before. It used to be on NBC on prime time you could get a show canceled off of NBC prime time if you fell below the 3.0. I know it happened to me. But know that NBC is not the number one network, it desperately needs numbers like this. I have said all along this fake campaign is about these numbers. Its the only way Trump could get attention to his show this time around. This was the way to pump up those numbers and his paycheck from NBC.
Capehart attempted spell out and debunk each point Trump has been making about Obamas birth certificate, which he did in a Wednesday afternoon post on WashingtonPost.com for viewers.

He is Jealous, Maybe wishes he had thought of it himself before his show went bust.
He does act like a jealous bass turd, doesn’t he?
Of course, class envy and resentment is exactly what motivates most lefties. That’s why they want to go after “Wall Street fat cats”-—they wish they could be fat cats themselves.
But deep down inside they have to really, truly know that they just can’t cut the mustard.
Just as aI thought the Donald is getting traction.

Ok, Larry. NBC has considered it. And then laughed. Happy now?
If I watched NBC, I would send them a letter and tell them to fire this Larry person.
