It just doesn’t get any funnier or more hypocritical than this.
MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell accused CNN of bringing on people who back President Donald Trump in a podcast Sunday, adding that his network won’t “bring on liars.”
Former Democratic Minnesota Sen. Al Franken spoke with O’Donnell on “The Al Franken Podcast” and said CNN plays “it down the middle, except we hate Trump.” O’Donnell disagreed, replying that “one third of the people on their payroll love Trump.”
“So you’re guaranteed on any hour of CNN to … minimum one third of the programming will be supportive of Trump — someone on their payroll saying, ‘Here’s why Trump’s right,’” O’Donnell said.
“Because he knows on MSNBC there will be no one defending him,” O’Donnell said. “Because we don’t bring on liars. I don’t bring on a liar. I won’t do that.”
