Lawrence O’Donnell makes a public request for mental health professionals to ‘explain Lindsey Graham’

Published

on

MSNBC anchor Lawrence O’Donnell slammed Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) for witness tampering and made a public appeal for mental health professionals to attempt to figure out what changed him.

The host of “The Last Word” reported that “Donald Trump, Jr. is going to respond to a subpoena issued by the Republican chairman of the Senate intelligence committee, even though on Sunday the Republican chairman of another Senate committee publicly advised Donald Trump Jr. to ignore that Senate subpoena.”

The host played a clip of the Republican senator.

“If I were Donald Trump, Jr.’s lawyer, I would tell him you don’t need to go back into this environment anymore. You’ve been there for hours and hours and hours and nothing being alleged here changes the outcome of the Mueller investigation. I would call it a day,” Graham said.

“The 27 psychiatrists and mental health professionals who wrote the book about Donald Trump are going to have to find some time to explain Lindsey Graham,” O’Donnell said.

The host put up an image of the 2017 book The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump which was edited by Dr. Bandy Lee.

Lindsey Graham is the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, the committee with jurisdiction over our criminal justice system and our civil justice system. That’s the committee that writes federal laws about, among other things, how federal subpoenas are enforced, and the chairman of that committee — who is a lawyer — is publicly advising a witness subpoenaed by the United States Senate to ignore that subpoena,” he noted. “Publicly advising him to commit a crime.”

“Lindsey Graham is an obstruction of justice,” O’Donnell declared. “This is clearly witness tampering.”

O’Donnell noted Graham could face disbarment and even expulsion from the United States Senate.

“Lindsey Graham could be disbarred as a lawyer for that. And by publicly tampering with a Senate witness, Lindsey Graham violated his oath of office,” he noted.

“In any previous Senate, the Senate Ethics Committee would begin an investigation of Lindsey Graham today that would very likely lead to his expulsion from the United States Senate,” he continued.

“Something very serious has happened to Lindsey Graham and we don’t know what it is. Something deeply disturbing has happened to Lindsey Graham, and we don’t know what it is,” O’Donnell said.

Right now Donald Trump thinks he’s winning — and he might not be wrong

Donald Trump thinks he's winning.

For months, Americans have grown accustomed to Trump in his cornered-rat mode, lashing out defensively and ruminating obsessively over the possibility of impeachment. But his tweets this week have been surprisingly cheerful, suffused with the buoyant spirits of a teenage bully who has successfully swirlied a nerd.

First, like an overexcited child on Christmas Eve who unwraps his presents too soon, Trump — overcome with the pleasures of racist sadism — tweeted on Monday night that "ICE will begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens."

Here are 7 wild, bizarre and pathetic moments from Trump’s ‘campaign launch’

Published

on

On Tuesday night, President Donald Trump held a rally that was billed as the official launch his re-election campaign — though he has never really stopped holding campaign rallies.

As expected, the president ranted, lied, and engaged in the raucous attacks that are central to his connection with Republican voters. Some of it was actually just sad, such as his continued obsession with Hillary Clinton.

Here are seven of the wildest, disturbing and pathetic moments from the rally:

1. He said Democrats "want to destroy our country as we know it."

Rick Wilson hilariously ridicules the ‘formal flip-flops’ and ‘dress cargo pants’ worn by Florida Trump supporters

Published

on

Republican strategist Rick Wilson mocked the attire of the Donald Trump supporters who were bused in from around Florida for his official campaign kickoff in Orlando.

Wilson, a Florida man himself, joined MSNBC's Brian Williams for post-rally analysis on "The 11th Hour."

Williams played a clip of a Trump supporter with sleeveless Trump T-shirt identifying her as a "proud member of the basket of deplorables" explaining why she'll vote to re-elect the president in 2020.

"The main reason? Because he’s one of the best presidents we’ve had for a very long time," the woman argued. "Very long time."
