A Bearded Lawrence O’Donnell Announces MSNBC Return Date on Maddow

MSNBC host Lawrence O’Donnell has been out for a few months, after he got into a car accident back in April. He has been slowly recovering, and tonight, he made his grand return to the airwaves with an appearance on Rachel Maddow‘s show. He was also sporting a beard.

O’Donnell said that actually, the beard was “medically-induced,” because there was a period where he couldn’t risk any blood loss and so doctors told him to just not shave. He told Maddow he’s coming back to his show, The Last Word, on Monday, but thought it would be fun to just keep that fact a fun secret from O’Donnell’s fill-in host Ari Melber until the last second.

O’Donnell admitted that he hasn’t been watching the news day-in, day-out during his absence, but there’s one thing he knows for a fact: the Iraq war is over and that part of the world is totally cool now.
