Forget MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell’s meltdown this week, because the evidence shows he’s been acting like an intolerable prick for years.
After his meltdown went viral Wednesday, a regular guest on his MSNBC program texted CNN’s senior media writer, Oliver Darcy, to say “this behavior isn’t out of the ordinary for the host,” according to Brian Stelter’s weeknight newsletter.
“He berates them,” Oliver’s friend added, referencing O’Donnell’s staff. “As a guest it’s stunning. It’s uncomfortable.”
But one would be remiss to assume he only treats his staff like this.
Watch in the video below from 2004 as O’Donnell loses his temper while speaking with John O’Neil, the head of Swift Boat Vets for Truth, repeatedly calling him a “LIAR!”
And now watch in the video below from 2010 as O’Donnell berates former President George W. Bush’s speechwriter Marc Thiessen:
O’Donnell is basically a self-absorbed prick who preaches holier-than-thou drivel for the camera while simultaneously mistreating everyone around him, including presumably his ex-wife as well.
Truth be hold, he’s the exact type of aristocratic prick I dislike most. He grew up blessed with a near-perfect existence and now pines to destroy our lives by trying to push America toward socialism, which any sensible adult knows only leads to death and destruction …
And all while he treats everyone around him like garbage. What a guy, huh?
If I had the chance to give him a piece of advice, I’d encourage him to first read up some more on socialism — and then STOP treating people like trash.
In fact, I’d urge him to be thankful that’s he’s been exposed, because it’s better to find out you’re a prick and thus have a chance to fix your ways than it is to die as one.
