MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell blasted Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA) on Thursday night, calling him “an incompetent amateur who deserves no place in Congressional leadership.”

According to a Democratic aide, Cantor rudely interrupted the president during talks on the federal debt ceiling on Wednesday, leading Sen. Harry Reid to call him “childish” on the Senate floor the next day.

Thursday, he reportedly did not say a single word.
