This is like the Crips and Bloods in a gangfight. You can’t possibly root for either side, but just hope they inflict as much damage as possible on each other. So on his final night as a political candidate Anthony Weiner goes on MSNBC with low-rated hack Lawrence O’Donnell. Naturally it sinks into the gutter pretty quickly.
Anthony Weiner took a beating on the night before the mayoral primary from MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell, who repeatedly asked the scandal-scarred Democratic candidate, “What is wrong with you?”
The TV host turned his show, “The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell,” into a combative, bizarre, not-quite-therapy session Monday night when he barraged Weiner with vague questions, barely letting the mayoral hopeful get a word in edgewise.
“I have really just one basic question I think a lot of people have wondered about,” O’Donnell started. “For me, it just comes down to this, which is: What is wrong with you?”
After an awkward pause, Weiner replied that he didn’t understand the question.
“I mean, what is wrong with you that you cannot seem to imagine a life without elective office?”
The two men began arguing, and O’Donnell waffled between showing disgust and tolerance for Weiner’s sexting scandals, which plunged him far behind the other candidates in the polls.
