Wrapping up a fawning interview with Massachusetts Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren on MSNBC's The Last Word Wednesday night, left-wing host Lawrence O'Donnell couldn't hold back his glee at Warren proposing her first piece of legislation. Like an adoring fan, he gushed: "Congratulations on your first bill. If I could just get your autograph here on my copy of the first Warren bill, this is a very exciting night at The Last Word." [Listen to the audio or watch the video after the jump]

As she happily signed her name, Warren exclaimed: " For Lawrence, you bet." O'Donnell announced: "This will be framed and then I'll – then I'll get a copy of the one the President signs when it becomes law." Warren replied: "Your mouth to God's ears."

MSNBC Host Embarrasses Himself, Asks Dem Senator for Her Autograph

The legislation they were celebrating was Warren's demand that the Federal Reserve provide loans to college students at the same low interest rates they loan to banks. O'Donnell began the segment by playing sound bites of Warren pushing her usual class warfare argument:

If the Federal Reserve can float trillions of dollars to large financial institutions at low interest rates to grow the economy, surely they can float the Department of Education the money to fund our students, keep us competitive, and help grow our middle class....the federal government's going to charge interest rates nine times higher than the rates they charge the biggest banks. The same banks that destroyed millions of jobs and nearly broke the economy. That isn't right.

Here are excerpts of the May 8 exchange:

10:19PM ET

ELIZABETH WARREN [SEN. D-MA]: If the Federal Reserve can float trillions of dollars to large financial institutions at low interest rates to grow the economy, surely they can float the Department of Education the money to fund our students, keep us competitive, and help grow our middle class.

LAWRENCE O'DONNELL: That was Massachusetts senior Senator Elizabeth Warren introducing her first piece of legislation in the Senate today. The bill is designed to give students relief from high interest rates on federal loans which are scheduled to double on July 1st, from 3.4% to 6.8%. Senator Warren's bill would allow students to borrow at the same rate that big banks pay to the Federal Reserve, which is currently about .75%.

WARREN: In other words, the federal government's going to charge interest rates nine times higher than the rates they charge the biggest banks. The same banks that destroyed millions of jobs and nearly broke the economy. That isn't right.

O'DONNELL: Senator Warren, thank you very much for being here on your debut as a legislator on the Senate floor. How did that feel to go up there and do that?

WARREN: It felt good. Yeah, it did.

O'DONNELL: And you're ahead of schedule of the other first-year senators. They usually wait a while in doing this. But this thing just makes so much sense.

(...)

10:25PM ET

O'DONNELL: Senator Warren, congratulations on your first bill. If I could just get your autograph here on my copy of the first Warren bill, this is a very exciting night at The Last Word.

WARREN [SIGNING HER AUTOGRAPH]: For Lawrence, you bet.

O'DONNELL: This is – this will be framed and then I'll – then I'll get a copy of the one the President signs when it becomes law.

WARREN: Your mouth to God's ears. There we go.

O'DONNELL: Senator Warren, thank you very much for joining us tonight.

WARREN: Thank you.

The liberals want her to run for President. They are salivating about it. I think she is one of the biggest liberals in the Senate. It is pathetic that she gets to author bills in her first term, but Senator Scott and Senator Cruz is unable too. She will be able to brag about how much she got done in the Senate while our guys are not able to brag at all. So unfair it is to Republicans now adays.

Always pushing the spin, it wasn’t government meddleing
that caused it, it was the BANKS that cost millions of
jobs and nearly broke the economy.

Yeah right.

Oh yeah, why don’t we hand out home loans like that too, heck why don’t we just hand over all banks to the federal reserve...

I never even heard of o’donnell before ~a year ago. What a douche.

I remember him talking sh!t to one of romneys sons last year, about kicking his a$$ or whatever, like he’s some kind of baaaad dude.

Classy guy.

O’Donnell is such a moron. Maybe if Larry goes over to her house, she’ll let him ride around her teepee on her travois pulled by her pony. After that they can sit around the campfire in front of her teepee eating buffalo wings.

She is going to run. She's got an ego and sense of entitlement twice the size of Obama's. Watch out Hillary. There's going to be some argy-bargy (apologies to Phil Liggett)on the way to the nomination.

The Federal Reserve should not be loaning billions at below market interest rates to the big banks, the US Treasury or private citizens. The big banks should have been forced to declare bankruptcy when they technically failed in 2008 and then be reorganized under Federal Bankruptcy law forcing bondholders, shareholders, and management to pay the price of mismanagement instead of the taxpayers. Federal Reserve suppression of interest rates to support irresponsible management on Wall Street is a illegal tax on the savings of average citizens. Had Bush forced the big banks into bankruptcy in 2008 instead of abdicating management of the crisis to former Goldman Sachs CEO Hank Paulson, Ben Bernanke, and Timothy Geithner banks would have returned to responsible lending practices instead of speculation.

agree and yet our side won;t say anything on most subjects and nothing on social issues.

I wish people would read their rules back in 63 and think about it and how much they have done.

rules 23 to 28 and yet we cannot get a win on anything lately, instead we have to work with them

So pathetic.

I have to remark though, THIS is exactly where our side fails time and time again. We should be flooding his twitter with comments to call him out for being the pansy he is. I know you guys think it’s all a joke, it’s not.
Millions of young adults, and old ones too, take to twitter to express their outrage.

Oh well, that’s my take on it. As for EW, she is a liar. The dems set it up to have those rates increase for the sole purpose of blaming republicans. How unusual, a lying commie. Color me shocked.
