MSNBC Anchor Lawrence O’Donnell is Going Viral for All the Wrong Reasons

(Warning: the language in the videos below are NOT safe for work or for sensitive ears.)

One of MSNBC’s most important news personalities is going viral today for all the wrong reasons.

Trending: Trump Drops His Strongest Language Yet Regarding Mueller Probe

A series of outtake clips from one episode of O’Donnell’s MSNBC show are showcasing the leftwing pundit in a very ugly light.

In the video, O’Donnell can be seen struggling to keep himself under control as various technical difficulties threaten to drive him insane.

Sadly, for O’Donnell, he just doesn’t do a very good job of keeping himself together and around 4 minutes into the video he begins to come unglued.

Mediaite has the transcript from the most unhinged segment of the embarrassing video:

“STOP THE HAMMERING!” O’Donnell cries suddenly, in response to a knocking sound running faintly in the background.

He then stands up and launches into a shouted tirade past the camera.

“STOP THE HAMMERING UP THERE. WHO’S GOT A HAMMER? WHERE IS IT? WHERE’S THE HAMMER? GO UP ON THE OTHER FLOOR. SOMEBODY GO UP THERE AND STOP THE HAMMERING. STOP THE HAMMERING. I’LL GO DOWN TO THE G**DAMNED FLOOR MYSELF AND STOP IT, KEEP THE G**DAMNED COMMERCIAL BREAK GOING. CALL Fu**ing PHIL GRIFFIN, I DON’T CARE WHO THE Fu** YOU HAVE TO CALL. STOP THE HAMMERING. EMPTY OUT THE G**DAMNED CONTROL ROOM AND FIND OUT WHERE THIS IS GOING ON.”

“Fu**ing out of control sh**,” O’Donnell adds.

For his part, O’Donnell seems to have responded well to the embarrassing situation. On Thursday he tweeted an apology:

Funny enough, O’Donnell’s outburst is probably not going to go down as the most infamous on set explosion ever recorded.

The irascible former Fox News’ host, Bill O’Reilly, actually suffered through a similarly mortifying situation after he was recorded during his own monstrous temper tantrum.

However, the most famous outburst from a television host isn’t from the world of news and politics… it’s from sports media.

Back in 2000, ESPN’s long running fan-favorite, Chris Berman, got a wee bit frustrated while trying to work on an episode of Monday Night Football.

It’s easily the most famous (or infamous) blowup of an on-air personality…

So, while Lawrence O’Donnell may be a bit embarrassed, at least he knows he’s not alone in losing his cool.

Constitution.com 🇺🇸

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
