    Full Headline: Lawrence O'Donnell: Secret Service could ‘physically remove’ Trump from White House when he loses in 2020 MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell detailed his predictions for the end of the Trump presidency on Friday night, suggesting that the Secret Service could physically remove President Trump from the White House. Appearing on Bill Maher’s “Real Time" on HBO, O’Donnell said that he thinks Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) will defeat Trump in 2020. “The most likely ending of it is when Elizabeth Warren, or whoever the Democratic nominee is, beats him in the next election,” O’Donnell said. “You think if he loses...

    MSNBC guest and Sirius XM radio host Mark Thompson said on Monday that he believes criticizing the FBI and law enforcement is a “high crime and misdemeanor.” During a discussion about the Nunes memo and the subsequent Democratic response on MSNBC, Thompson said he had “never seen anything” like the criticisms of the FBI and law enforcement from Republicans. “And the other thing, just to draw together, this whole thing with the NRA. The NRA and Trump are attacking local law enforcement. The White House is attacking the FBI,” Thompson said. “We’ve never seen anything like this coming from Republicans.”...
  • MSNBC Host: Handgun Bullets Are Ineffective In Stopping School Shooters Because They're Too Slow

    Talk about a facepalm moment. Is it the media’s stupidity or stacking sandbags because they know this National Rifle Association initiative could gain traction? You decide. The NRA wants more armed guards in schools. Teachers should be allowed to carry as well. After the tragic Sandy Hook shooting, the school board voted to approve this proposal. This is not an alien concept. A lot of schools have resource officers; Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, the site of the most recent school shooting on February 14, had such officers. They failed to engage the shooter, Nikolas Cruz. Scores of teachers in...

    MSNBC anchors are claiming that teachers armed with handguns would be unable to stop a school shooter because rifles shoot “three times faster.” Anchor Lawrence O’Donnell said on his show Thursday night that “a bullet fired from an AR-15 travels 3x faster than one from a handgun…and yet the president and the NRA think giving teachers guns will stop a school shooter.” MSNBC ✔ @MSNBC Lawrence: A bullet fired from an AR-15 travels 3x faster than one from a handgun.

    Reacting late Tuesday to White House Chief of Staff John Kelly’s comments about illegal immigrants and the DACA program, MSNBC’s The Last Word host Lawrence O’Donnell lashed out at Kelly as “the worst White House chief of staff in history” and someone who’s undoubtedly “full of hatred” like President Trump.  Upon hearing the soundbite of Kelly knocking illegals who didn’t apply for DACA status, an enraged O’Donnell screeched that “John Kelly works for the laziest President in history who might very well be the laziest federal worker in history” while the retired Marine General “is the worst White House chief...

    Some media pundits have been determined not to let President Trump and the GOP gloat over their successful votes Tuesday and early Wednesday morning on tax reform. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act has passed both chambers and is now on its way to Trump's desk.House Speaker Paul Ryan is ecstatic, considering he has worked on tax reform since he was a baby-faced politician. For every middle-income family that knows what it's like to try to make ends meet and for every hardworking taxpayer who has ever spent hours trying to navigate complicated IRS forms, this vote in favor of...

    Today the jurors in the corruption trial of Senator Bob Menendez (D – NJ) will go back to work on orders of the judge, seeking to break what appears to be heading for a deadlock. Of course, if you don’t read conservative blogs or watch Fox News, you probably didn’t know that. There’s been a vacuum in terms of coverage on the major networks and most of cable news. One glaring example of this is MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell, who freely admits that he hasn’t mentioned the trial once since it began.Why is that? He was actually asked about it...

    The America that I love, with all its warts and blemishes, voted for a black man to be our president 8 years ago and welcomed a black family into the White House. The America that I love, with all its faults and failings, reveres the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King and regrets the legacy of slavery and segregation. That same America is being torn apart today by race baiters and race agitators. We must not let them divide us. We will always have racists and haters in our midst. We will always have provocateurs who feed on discord and...

    Tucker Carlson opened his nightly show Tucker Carlson Tonight yesterday with a fantastic take down of  the "morons" from MSNBC Lawrence O'Donnell and Joy Reid for suggesting that White House Chief of Staff General John Kelly is somehow racist for criticizing  Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL). Lawrence O'Donnell, who is an Irish Catholic from Boston himself, proclaimed that Gen. Kelly grew up in a segregated neighborhood where women were abused.  “John Kelly never sat next to Frederica Wilson in his elementary school,” O'Donnell said. Adding "the language used in John Kelly's white neighborhood about black people was the exact same language used...

    MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell cut off the victory speech of Roger Moore on Tuesday night because he was talking about God. Moore, who won the Alabama Senate Republican primary over Sen. Luther Strange (R., Ala.), delivered a victory speech shortly after being the projected winner. "We have become a nation that has distanced ourself from the very foundation," Moore said. "[George] Washington said of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion, and morality are indispensable … We've got to recognize that we've been separated by something that separation of church and state doesn't stand for.

    A volley of U.S. cruise missiles had barely been launched into Syria before the Internet filled up with fact-free theories about the real reason for an international crisis. A popular one on the right-most fringes: The U.S. government actually carried out the chemical weapons massacre in Syria last week — a “false flag” to trick President Trump into retaliating, thus entangling himself in a foreign war. A slightly more convoluted strain on the left: Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the chemical weapons massacre to help Trump — distracting Americans from an investigation into Trump's campaign ties to Russia by provoking...

    The reporter who was lauded by the media for sharing Trump’s boring 2005 tax return is not getting much attention for his politics but perhaps he should be. While the networks this morning described David Cay Johnston as a “Pulitzer Prize winning reporter,” they apparently didn’t notice that he was a hard core liberal as well, like they would do with a reporter on the right. Johnston is currently authoring an anti-Trump book and has tweeted thousands of tweets attacking Trump and the right. Not to mention he is a contributor to the left-leaning Daily Beast and New York Times....

    In the first 24 hours after Donald Trump’s stunning victory, one of the media figures who appeared to be taking the news the hardest was MSNBC’s Last Word host Lawrence O’Donnell who began his Wednesday show by hailing President Barack Obama as “the most noble man” to ever become president since George Washington owned slaves and Abraham Lincoln was genocidal toward Native Americans. O’Donnell panned Trump as one who will be joining a pantheon of “the racists who have lived in the White House” but also explained how Obama was more noble of a president than Washington and Thomas Jefferson...

    Roughly 30 minutes after (perhaps appropriately) ripping into the media for their labeling of ISIS terrorist Abdelhamid Abaaoud the “mastermind” of Friday’s Islamic terrorist attacks in Paris, MSNBC’s Last Word host Lawrence O’Donnell struck out against Republican Senator Ted Cruz (Tex.) for engaging in “predictable, childish bluster” by responding to President Obama’s denouncement of his stance on Syrian refugees.  Following introductions and soundbites from House Speaker Paul Ryan and the President on the issue, O’Donnell remarked that the 2016 GOP candidate “was the first Republican candidate this week to say we should accept only Christian refugees into this country.” Watch...

    An MSNBC host walked back a statement he’d made Thursday when he called Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump a liar after Trump called his bluff and challenged him to a wager. Not only did Lawrence O’Donnell take back his previous statement, he also said he liked the real estate mogul. The brouhaha began Thursday when O’Donnell appeared on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” and said “The Donald” had inflated his income figures in his Federal Election Commission financial statement. Trump immediately bet a year of his salary against a year of O’Donnell’s that he was right. That evening on his own MSNBC...

    MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell said Tuesday that Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server that was subsequently destroyed was “very clearly in violation” of State Department rules. It was revealed earlier in the year that Clinton used a private email server to circumvent federal records requirements during her time as secretary of state. Government workers are required to conduct business on an official email address that saves correspondence to a government server so that they can be held accountable for their actions. O’Donnell said Clinton skirted those rules. “It goes back to the original issue, which is the proper...

    "This wasn't honest." That's how Mika Brzezinski described Hillary's handling of her email on today's Morning Joe. Mika also admitted that if it were Dick Cheney instead of Hillary, "I'd go crazy." Mika's surprising admission came after Lawrence O'Donnell also made a candid comment, saying "this e-mail system was set up obviously to defy the Freedom of Information Act." View the video here.

    Ah! The nudge to remove Hillary Clinton from the stage. Some get it. Some don't. Among those who don't get it is Alex Wagner who lacks the subtlety to see that the exit of Hillary could very probably mean the entrance of the "progressive" heroine, Elizabeth Warren. Lawrence O'Donnell gets it which is probably why he was very critical of Hillary's email situation. The subtext in this video seems to be Lawrence O'Donnell trying to ease Hillary from the scene as Alex continues to guzzle the Clinton Kool-Aide without really thinking ahead. First we shall see Alex perform her Clinton...

In the midst of ripping President Obama's controversial National Prayer Breakfast speech from earlier in the day, O'Donnell asserted that "Catholicism was the most murderous force on the face of the Earth for hundreds of years," as he ripped President Obama's controversial National Prayer Breakfast speech from earlier in the day.
