MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell Lambastes Orly Taitz, Ends Interview Early

In what could only be described as a bizzarro victory lap, Birther Queen Orly Taitz (who gave this site the proud, somewhat badass moniker “Insane Obama Thugs”) spent her 14th minute on The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell. On the heels of President Obama’s release of his long form birth certificate, Taitz had her work cut out for her if she wanted to sound more delusional than self-congratulatory lunatic Donald Trump.

She also had to compete with herself from earlier today, when she said that a real long form birth certificate would have said “negro” under “father’s nationality,” not “African.”

Taitz began by awkwardly asking for a close-up, so that she could show a document that she claimed was Obama’s selective service record. O’Donnell was in no mood to let Taitz introduce new “evidence,” or let her filibuster, and after a few minutes of attempting to force her to stay on topic, he ended the interview.

O’Donnell claimed, at the end of the interview, that he hadn’t expected it to go this way. I doubt that. He has clearly studied Orly’s modus operandi, and was ready for the barrage of patter.  O’Donnell was a tad merciless, but it’s hard to cry any crocodile tears for Taitz, who has been given far too much attention so far.

Here’s the clip, from MSNBC:
