On this morning's edition of MSNBC's "Morning Joe," co-host Mika Brzezinski introduced interview guest Thiessen by reading his book's title and tossing in a quick comment, "Not sure that's fair…"
Her interjection prompted show host Joe Scarborough to exclaim, "Will you let the guy talk? My God!"
But she continued, "Inviting the next attack? Are you crazy?"
When occasional fill-in host for Keith Olbermann and MSNBC analyst Lawrence O'Donnell was invited to comment, however, he was incensed beyond correction.
You wrote a book that says the president of the United States – on its title – the president is inviting the next attack," said O'Donnell, pointing a finger and growing increasingly accusatory. "Isn't it true that the president you worked for invited the first attack?"
O'Donnell continued escalating and pointing a finger until Scarborough implored O'Donnell to stop the tirade and let Thiessen answer the torrent of questions he had unleashed. Nonetheless, O'Donnell continued badgering without pause, over every interruption, until Scarborough cut off the segment, went to break and announced he would conduct the rest of the interview without the other MSNBC personalities.
O'DONNELL WAS IN A FRENZY TRYING TO PIN 9-11 ON GEORGE W. BUSH AND HIS LACK OF KNOWLEDGE ON WHO HIT US THAT DAY...HOWEVER EVERYONE KNOWS THAT THE GROUNDWORK FOR THAT DAY'S ATTACK WAS FROM THE CLINTON ADMINISTRATION AND CLINTON'S UNWILLINGNESS TO TAKE APPROPRIATE MEASURES TO KEEP AMERICAN CITIZENS SAFE...
IT AIN'T WORKING O'DONNELL...FROTH AT THE MOUTH ALL YOU WANT...YOU CAN'T REWRITE THIS PIECE OF AMERICAN HISTORY BECAUSE WE ALL LIVED IT!!
