Wondering why the name of this MSNBC anchor has been trending?
Lawrence O’Donnell was furious in around 8 minutes of footage obtained by Mediaite. The anchor seems to have had a series of meltdowns that were captured on video last month and leaked online Wednesday.
“STOP THE HAMMERING UP THERE. WHO’S GOT A HAMMER?” O’Donnell can be heard shouting in the clip. “WHERE IS IT? WHERE’S THE HAMMER?”
Glenn Beck, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere tried to extrapolate some lessons from O’Donnell’s on-camera crisis on Thursday’s “The Glenn Beck Radio Program.”
“So before they end the world on the 23rd, we get to find out that Lawrence O’Donnell is still on the air,” Stu joked. “Both signs from God.”
They listened to part of the clip, which definitely had distinct sounds of hammers being used.
Glenn didn’t think Pat would have been able to handle the racket either.
“You would have lost your mind,” he said.
O'Donnell has since apologized for losing it in the studio, tweeting that "a better person would've had a better reaction to technical difficulties."
A better anchorman and a better person would've had a better reaction to technical difficulties. I'm sorry.
