Liberal radio host Bill Press blasted MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell on Tuesday morning in the wake of his contentious interview with New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner. Press said that O’Donnell’s questions, as well as the booking itself, made no sense. He added that O’Donnell behaved like an “a-hole” during his prime time probing of Weiner.RELATED: Lawrence O’Donnell Conducts Unbelievable Trainwreck of an Interview with Anthony Weiner
“What is wrong with you?” O’Donnell asked Weiner on Monday night. “What is wrong with you that you cannot seem to imagine a life without elected office?”
“I think Lawrence O’Donnell proved to be a real a-hole with that question,” Press said after playing a portion of Monday night’s interview on his radio program.
“Why even book Anthony Weiner? Everybody knows he’s a joke. Everybody knows he’s not going to win,” Press continued.
He added that the question he posed to Weiner could be asked of virtually every politician who cycles in and out of elective office, including Hillary Clinton.
“Lawrence O’Donnell, shame on you,” Press concluded.
