Lawrence O'Donnell Apologizes After Screaming at Staff in Leaked Rant: 'Insanity in My Earpiece'
The MSNBC host was also seen slamming his fists on his desk.
O'Donnell lost it during the commercial breaks on his show, reportedly taped on Aug. 29. He was seen slamming his fist on his desk, throwing a pen and launching an expletive-filled tirade in the clip, which was leaked Wednesday.
The video, which first appeared on Mediaite, showed O'Donnell in a growing state of anger as he's distracted by what he called "insanity in my earpiece" and screamed about someone with a hammer.
“Stop the hammering!,” he repeated. “Stop the hammering up there. Who's got a hammer? Where is it? Where's the hammer?”
He also threatened to get the president of the network on the phone to figure out what was going on.
“It just f***ing sucks,” O’Donnell said while staring down at his desk. “It f***ing sucks to be out here with this out of control s***.”
“A better anchorman and a better person would've had a better reaction to technical difficulties,” he tweeted Wednesday night after the clip was released. “I'm sorry.”
