MSNBC’s O’Donnell Offers Up Weak Apology for Shady Trump Loan Claims

During the opening moments of MSNBC’s The Last Word on Wednesday, host and serial fibber Lawrence O’Donnell buckled under pressure from President Trump’s legal team and retracted his dubious report from the previous night. A report which suggested the President’s loan from Deutsche Bank was co-signed by Russian oligarchs.

Despite spending much of his Tuesday show flaunting his claims, which came from a single anonymous source, O’Donnell’s apology lasted less than a minute; a scant 57 seconds.

Last night on this show I discussed information that wasn't ready for reporting. I repeated statements a single source told me about the President's finances and loan documents with Deutsche Bank. Saying ‘if true’ as I discussed the information was simply not good enough,” he admitted.
