[See NewsBusters for more.] MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell would love to cover the Robert Menendez corruption trial. He really would. But he simply can’t because... Donald Trump. That was the lame excuse offered by O’Donnell on Monday as he talked to a local Philadelphia radio host. Put on the spot about the media hiding the Democrat’s bribery case, the liberal host blamed circumstances: “If we had any other president in the White House, any other of the Republicans that were running for president, never mind, have Hillary Clinton as president, the Menendez trial would be a very big item in all of our coverage.” The MSNBC host conceded, “I haven’t talked about Menendez since the charges were first brought. I actually talked about him more before the charges were filed because our presidential politics have overwhelmed it.”
