O'Donnell Goes Nuts on 'Morning Joe', Scarborough Cuts Him Off

MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell went into an unhinged attack on a former Bush administration official Friday, and was eventually shut out of the discussion by Joe Scarborough.

Appearing on "Morning Joe" with former Bush speechwriter Marc Thiessen who was brought on to discuss terrorist interrogation procedures, O'Donnell began by first calling him a liar, and then accused the Bush White House of inviting 9/11 "by having no idea what was going on with al Qaeda."

As O'Donnell continued with his attack, others on the set were heard asking him to calm down and stop.

When Thiessen tried to respond, O'Donnell violently interrupted him forcing Scarborough to cut in, go to a commercial, and say that he would be interviewing Thiessen alone (video embedded below the fold with commentary, h/t Hot Air):

For some reason, after Scarborough interviewed Thiessen, he decided to give O'Donnell one last chance to comport himself (h/t Story Balloon):

How disgraceful.

Of course, this isn't the first time O'Donnell has gone totally unhinged on camera. 

Readers should recall him going nuts with Swiftboat veteran John O'Neill in 2004 as well as his disgusting attack on Mitt Romney and Mormonism in 2007. Lest we forget one of the worst interviews in history last year.

In the end, O'Donnell has become a sad joke who really shouldn't be allowed on a news station any longer...which makes him fit in perfectly at MSNBC.
