Trump Roasts ‘Crazy Lawrence O’Donnell’ After MSNBC Host Makes Humiliating TV Confession

President Donald Trump criticized MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell in a series of Thursday morning tweets for “totally inaccurate reporting.”

The president’s tweets come after O’Donnell made a claim regarding Trump’s taxes on his show Tuesday night before retracting them the next day after presidential attorney Charles Harder accused the MSNBC host of making “false and defamatory, and extremely damaging” claims.

“Crazy Lawrence O’Donnell, who has been calling me wrong from even before I announced my run for the Presidency, even being previously forced by NBC to apologize, which he did while crying, for things he said about me [and] The Apprentice, was again forced to apologize…” the president began in a series of tweets.

“This time for the most ridiculous claim of all, that Russia, Russia, Russia, or Russian oligarchs, co-signed loan documents for me, a guarantee. Totally false, as is virtually everything else he, and much of the rest of the LameStream Media, has said about me for years. ALL APOLOGIZE!” he continued.

“The totally inaccurate reporting by Lawrence O’Donnell, for which he has been forced by NBC to apologize, is NO DIFFERENT than the horrible, corrupt and fraudulent Fake News that I (and many millions of GREAT supporters) have had to put up with for years. So bad for the USA!” the president concluded.

O’Donnell initially tweeted the claims before his Tuesday night show, writing, “A source close to Deutsche Bank says Trump’s tax returns show he pays very little income tax and, more importantly, that his loans have Russian co-signers. If true, that explains every kind word Trump has ever said about Russia and Putin.”

Harder sent a letter to NBC on Wednesday demanding O’Donnell retract his statements.

“Actual malice can easily be proven based on your reckless disregard of the truth and unreasonable reliance on an alleged ‘source’ who you will not even identify in your story and likely is seeking to mislead you and the public for political reasons or other ulterior motives,” Harder wrote in the letter.

O’Donnell subsequently tweeted a follow-up statement Wednesday, writing, “Last night I made an error in judgment by reporting an item about the president’s finances that didn’t go through our rigorous verification and standards process. I shouldn’t have reported it and I was wrong to discuss it on the air. I will address the issue on my show tonight.”
