MSNBC prime-time anchor Lawrence O'Donnell issued an apology for running with a single-sourced unverified claim about President Trump and Deutsche Bank."Last night I made an error in judgment by reporting an item about the president’s finances that didn’t go through our rigorous verification and standards process," he tweeted on Wednesday. "I shouldn’t have reported it and I was wrong to discuss it on the air. I will address the issue on my show tonight." (Tweet) On his show the day before, O'Donnell claimed that a source close to the bank was in possession of "documents that Donald Trump obtained loans with co-signers"

I hope Lawrence O'Donnell is sanctioned somehow. He has a real anger problem as evidenced by some of his rants. He makes no attempt to act fairly when It comes to PDJT. He has a severe case of Trump Derangement Syndrome. I can't imagine anyone watches that guy.

What fresh hell is this? Does he think that the network has "vigorous verification processes" other than broadcasting whatever they think will harm Trump? Laughable. No, pathetic.

L O'D made an error in judgment by not crawling under a rock and staying there, he's an awful person. I can watch a second or two of any of his fellow travelers but not him. Zero seconds is my limit.

O'Donnell once declared himself a "socialist" on the November 6, 2010, Morning Joe show, stating: "I am not a progressive. I am not a liberal who is so afraid of the word that I had to change my name to 'progressive.' Liberals amuse me. I am a socialist. I lie to the extreme left, the extreme left of you mere liberals". On the August 1, 2011, episode of The Last Word, O'Donnell further explained: "I have been calling myself a socialist ever since I first read the definition of socialism in the first economics class I took in college." And now you know the rest of the story.

What's the old saying, "a lie will travel around the world long before the truth catches up to it"? He tried to excite Rachel Maddow's rabbid viewers with the hope of generating an increase in their ratings, period. I must say, far too many on the LEFT, seem too gullible and will believe anything they are told, or see on the internet. I suspect many have an issue with judgement which would be a real problem on a jury trial knowing they can't set aside their biases and render a proper verdict.

Rep. Ilhan Omar is living la vida loca these days.For her, when it's not bouncing back and forth between her husband and brother on the matrimony front, it's jumping into the homewrecker racket, with some woman now claiming Omar stole her husband.Not exactly the sort of life the Sharia crowd recommends, at least for women, of course, but Omar comes from the elites and Sharia law in places such as her native Somalia, is only for little people, anyway. Omar's got that one covered. The real problem with her alley-cat morals is that seems to be a vector to corruption. Here's the New York Post:

On May 12, 2017, an FBI Supervisory Special Agent visited former FBI Director James Comey's home to collect any government property still in his possession. President Trump had unceremoniously fired Comey three days earlier while the longtime government official was on a trip to California. But when an FBI team came to Comey's Virginia home, they did not obtain four memos he had penned about his sometimes bizarre interactions with the president. Comey 'did not tell the FBI that he had copies' of four memos he had written 'in his personal safe,' according to a report by the Justice Department's Inspector General that was released Thursday.

News broke a couple of weeks ago that President Donald Trump is apparently interested in acquiring for the United States the barren, remote Arctic island of Greenland. Trump is hardly the first president to express an interest in acquiring the Danish semi-autonomous region for the United States. As Hank Berrien of The Daily Wire noted at the time, the possibility of acquiring Greenland has been publicly floated by previous administrations: "President Harry Truman offered to buy Greenland from Denmark for $100 million in 1946" and "the State Department during the tenure of President Andrew Johnson considered buying Iceland and Greenland in 1867."
